"Our Real Estate history with Frank goes back to the early eighties when he was a top Realtor in West Los Angeles - still being lured by production and music. His Real Estate gifts were apparent to us back then. During that period, Frank sold our beach lot in Malibu - fast and efficiently! When we were looking for a condo in Carlsbad a few years ago, Frank who by then had been in San Diego for years, found us the perfect townhome.
Frank continues to be our one stop shop for Real Estate and financing as we now look for another property with a bit more square footage. Through the years he has spoiled us - his photo layouts & write-ups are amazing! The visibility and interest is always way ahead of the competition. From pricing and financing to hunting down what's best for our needs, he's always about the details while creating a personal experience that has always put us at ease. We can't imagine dealing with anyone else. " back to top
"Frank sold my home in less than a month for full price with multiple offers. His superior marketing skills, utilizing photography and written copy in the listing, to attract prospective buyers, is second to none! As a long time mortgage broker, I have dealt with many Real Estate agents over the years and Frank stands out as one of the best. I highly recommend Frank, especially in this extremely competitive Real Estate market." back to top

"In this complicated market of foreclosures and short sales, having an agent who is tuned in to the market is critical. As first time home buyers we felt overwhelmed and intimidated. We feel so incredibly blessed to have found Frank Kattus. Not only is he well versed in the current market conditions, he walks you through each step of the process so you can make informed decisions with confidence. He takes the time to truly understand who you are and what you are looking for.
Frank is always available, whether to answer questions or short notice showings - he truly makes you feel like his special client. He is kind, courteous, patient, easy-going, honest and professional. Not only did he help us find our dream home, he also assisted us with obtaining financing. This stream-lined the process and put us on the fast track to success. Instead of feeling, not only that we had an agent looking out for our best interest, we felt like we had a whole team of professioanls working together. He brings with him a wealth of industry related knowledge of home inspectors, mortgage brokers, repairmen and so much more.
Frank is a professional with integrity, smarts and uncommon dedication to client satisfaction. The proof is in the results. The experience of finding our dream home, after viewing various properties, was absolutely wonderful. To this day Frank stays in touch to be certain we are satified and happy in our new home. In the future if we decide to buy/sell again we will definitely be utilizing Frank's talent and will recommend him to anyone and everyone who is buying or selling a home.

"Frank Kattus not only listed and sold our home in record time during a slowing market, but he also brought us our buyer! Frank has been our trusted Real Estate broker for the past 5 years. He recently guided us through the challenging process of buying our new home through a 'short sale'. As a result, due to Frank's perseverance, knowledge and negotiating skills, we were able to purchase and move into our beautiful home we thought was out of our reach. We highly recommend Frank and appreciate his expertise. He will be our Real Estate agent for years to come." back to top

"Moving from Ohio to Carlsbad and finding a home seemed somewhat overwhelming. Frank Kattus was able to help us identify the area and house that was exactly what we were looking for!

"Frank Kattus has been our Real Estate broker for many years and we wouldn't dream of using anyone else. Frank helped us purchase our very first house in 1985 and represented us in the purchase of our dream house... the house we are in now. He also, creatively handled the listing and marketing of our previous homes for us. We trust Frank completely to guide us through the process from beginning to end. He really listens to our wants & needs; he works diligently to find homes for us in our price range with our specifications. He is an expert at every aspect of Real Estate from the first meeting to signing the final papers. " back to top

"Quite simply put, we would not be in the 'house of our dreams' were it not for Frank Kattus. My wife and I spent time communicating our desires to Frank who did not disappoint with the properties he showed us. We had a very tight timeframe in which we had to relocate. Fortunately for us, Frank provided a number of listings that met our criteria. After reviewing a few, it was obvious we had found the home we wanted to raise our family in. Frank invests his time in his clients in the best manner possible, listening, questioning then acting in their best interests. We are indeed grateful to Frank." back to top
"I am a relative newcomer to California and when I decided I wanted to buy a home, I had no idea where to look for a Real Estate representative. So, I contacted one who had listed a condo in the area in which I wanted to purchase. What a lucky break for me! Frank Kattus was right on top of things, assessing what would be best for me...which location and appropriate financing. He helped me in my negotiations when I found the "perfect" place and did all the work necessary to make it mine. Frank has a caring spirit plus a deep understanding of the market....a combination that is wonderful for sellers or buyers. His innate sense of responsibility and loyalty is evident as he exhibits his expertise. I could have researched for months and not found a person better qualified to represent me in my endeavor to find a home. And, maybe as important as all of these traits is his follow-up. He checks in with me periodically to be sure everything is going well. What realtor would be so ongoing in his conscientiousness!" back to top
