Chicago to North Shore
Cathy is a third-generation top-producing real estate broker, following in her mother's and grandmother's footsteps. She provides highly personalized service, helping clients define and achieve their real estate objectives. She is results-driven, creative, and a relentless advocate for her clients. Cathy offers a discerning eye for design and staging.
Cathy is a member of @properties' Glencoe and Lincoln Park offices. After serving as a Vice President for Residential Sales with one of the nation's top real estate teams specializing in Chicago's near north side, Cathy joined forces with her mother Julie Deutsch in 2018. Deutsch Residential now proudly serves clients from as far north as Lake Bluff to as far south as Hyde Park.
Prior to launching her career in real estate, Cathy was a fundraising executive for the University of Chicago, where she secured transformational philanthropic investments in science and medicine. Cathy has found many parallels between fundraising and marketing luxury homes. Both require a keen understanding of the donor/client's financial and personal goals, extraordinary communication, and astute analytical skills.
Cathy graduated from the University of Vermont. She studied in Avignon, France, and is fluent in French (and enjoys French wine!). She grew up in Highland Park and is a long-time resident of Chicago's Lincoln Park and Lakeview neighborhoods. Her passions include traveling, hiking, and collecting art.
Clients are saying:
"Cathy was absolutely amazing to work with. I was moving from out of state and she was very responsive and set me up with everything I could ask for. I found exactly what I wanted with her help. I would highly recommend."
"We will recommend her to everyone! In addition to being a tireless source of information and a great advocate for our family she is just an all around lovely human being. Cathy is able to be both easy-going and sweet whilst negotiating and giving honest insights. We also appreciated that she was never too pushy and an excellent listener. Our family got exactly what we wanted and we're so happy!"
"We worked with Cathy over the course of two years - she was infinitely patient with us as we worked through what we wanted and when we could purchase. As a first time home buyer, Cathy walked us through the process and recommended other professionals to help us - from home inspector to lender.
We will use Cathy again and recommend her to friends and family."
