With Cathy Lima, clients understand they’re getting far more than a knowledgeable real estate advisor. From locating the perfect home, investment opportunities, or effective property marketing strategies, she brings a hands-on approach to every transaction, ensuring clients receive concierge-level real estate guidance. Her previous mortgage industry career and straightforward communication style augment her expertise — resulting in client trust, positive results, and lasting relationships throughout the Lake Tahoe/Reno region.
Taking center stage is Cathy’s empathetic and self-motivating personality, as demonstrated by a genuine desire to help people. Every buyer and seller can rely on her attention to detail, luxury mindset, and network of industry connections, including a partnership with Sotheby’s International Relocation Service for global property sales and purchases.
“Working with a real estate advisor who has industry longevity is vital. As a resident since 1981, I draw upon my in-depth local insight to empower you to make astute real estate decisions.”
Born in Hawaii, Cathy was raised in Southern California, spending summers in Lake Tahoe. It’s no wonder in 1981, she chose to call Tahoe, then Reno, home, raising her two children while maintaining strong ties to her California and Oahu roots.
Beyond her real estate career, Cathy is a self-taught gourmet cook who loves entertaining guests with her famous Paella. Fortunate to have lived the “Tahoe lifestyle” for much of her adult life, Cathy enjoys snow sports, boating, travel, and golf with family and friends. Dedicated to community outreach, she proudly volunteers her time to serve The Junior League, real estate boards, and local organizations.
Cathy understands choosing a professional real estate advisor is an important decision. She values the opportunity to guide you toward success with dedication and skill.
