In all of my dealings, both personal and professional, my goal is to provide true service with integrity and joyfulness. I truly love helping my clients buy and sell their homes. I know that this is one of, if not the, biggest investment my clients will make in their lives, and I strive to ensure that the process is simple and enjoyable.
When you hire me to represent you, you can rest assured that you are working with an experienced, knowledgable and professional Principal Broker. I will communicate well all areas and aspects of the home buying or selling process, so you will never feel left in the dark. I know this is a big investment for you, and whether you are buying your first home, your retirement home, or selling your investment property or a home you've lived in for 20 years, I will strive to expertly negotiate the best price for you. I spend time each month understanding the changing market conditions and inventory so you can be assured you are in good hands.
I love that I have so many repeat clients and referrals! There is no greater compliment to me and my level of service than to have my clients return to me to sell their home or buy another, or refer their friends and family to me. I appreciate this so much!
I am invested in my community, both locally and globally, and strive to give back to strengthen our community and help those in need. A portion of all of my commissions goes toward any of several local, national and international charities I choose to support. We can become a better community, state, nation and world when we work together to support each other!
My husband, Dylan, and I have two boys, Jameson and Sullivan. We live in McMinnville and love adventuring with our kids, spending time with family and friends, walking on 3rd St, wine tasting, participating in our book club, and remodeling our house. We attend Intown Presbyterian Church in Portland OR.
We just purchased land outside of Newberg with the help of Catherine Summers of the McCreith Team. What a pleasant person to work with! She is just great - very competent and responsive. Never pushy, she hung in there with us, willingly walking through muddy cow pastures and thorny blackberry bushes while we took about 9 months to find and buy the right piece of property. We highly recommend her.

We were referred to Catherine and were looking in particular for someone who was personable and would be very communicative with us, responding in a timely manner. Catherine far exceeded our needs, being very prompt in all communications and being available for us in a moments notice…literally! She helped us to narrow down our search and honed in on what we were looking for when we were overwhelmed with all of the possibilities. Very professional from day one, Catherine was also very easy to talk with and find out more about the area and the community we were looking to move into. And when it came down to the business of buying a house, she was very diligent in the details of the transaction. We couldn’t be more satisfied and couldn’t have asked for more, and look forward to working with Catherine in the future and referring her to others.
