In addition to her residential portfolio, Cat has been active in transforming commercial spaces into attractive, workable offices and showrooms. Have a look at what she did with the building on Puntledge Rd. that houses The Treasure Shack and Inglis Professional Tutoring. A phenomenal transformation.

For you Realtors out there, Cat also has a warehouse for her staging and design products (furniture, artwork, lighting and much more) that are used for various projects and marketing needs.

Her recent focus has been mainly her own projects — purchasing properties, rejuvenating and staging them — then subsequently returning them to the market, ready for the right buyer.
