About Cathy DeValk


My Client-First Philosophy


There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.


That said, in my experience as a real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.


This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.


My background - I am a native Iowan, who grew up in Northeast Iowa and settled Iowa City area in 1996. I live with my husband, Scot, in rural Solon with our four children. I became a licensed realtor in 2015, and quickly became familiar with the delights of living in unique neighborhoods within the corridor--ranging from the active downtown Iowa City life to the allure of small acreages and the benefits of surrounding small communities. 


So when you decide that you'd like to buy or sell a home in the Corridor area, please contact me.
