Specializing in distinctive Malibu and Southern California area properties, Cathy Bindley offers her clients an impressive track record of more than $200 million in sales since 2005, and the knowledge and insight acquired throughout her 30 years as a Malibu resident with more than 25 years in real estate.
As the coveted Southern California coastal region’s real estate landscape has evolved, Cathy’s expertise has grown, and her client list continually expands. She has sold numerous stunning properties throughout Malibu, Pacific Palisades, Venice, Hollywood, Westlake, Calabasas, and Agoura, and is the realtor of choice among discriminating East Coast and international buyers and sellers of properties, including family homes, vacation homes, and large estates.
Highly valued by her repeat clients for her compassionate and hands-on attention, Cathy is respected by her colleagues, who consistently refer their clients, citing her calm demeanor, expert organizational skills, enthusiastic can-do attitude, and problem-solving acumen, which results in efficient, expeditious and successful transactions.
Cathy’s caring, steady manner, positive attitude, and efficiency came from her training and experience in her initial career as a teacher. Originally from Indiana, Cathy earned a Bachelor of Science degree in education from Indiana University. Cathy says, “Just like a great teacher, a great realtor must be extremely organized, communicate clearly, and remain calm in virtually any situation.”
Having resided in leading cities as diverse as New York, Boston, Atlanta, and Los Angeles, Cathy’s heart belongs to Malibu. She loves the sense of community, camaraderie, the warm and friendly people, and the fantastic schools in this beautiful Southern California coastal city. A proud mother of two, Cathy’s children both attended Malibu schools. After graduating from Malibu High School, her son attended and graduated from New York University and received his master’s degree from Northwestern University Kellogg School of Management. He now works in private equity. Her daughter also graduated from Malibu High School and then attended Loyola Marymount University where she studied psychology. She is currently in her first year at Northwestern University working toward her masters in marriage and family therapy.
Cathy’s kindness and generosity extend far beyond her professional responsibilities, and she is active in a variety of charitable causes, including the United States Ski Team. She also sits on the Bellarmine College of Liberal Arts Advisory Board for Loyola Marymount University. She loves yoga, working out, playing pickleball and is reviving her golf interest along with her husband, a film producer and director who co-founded Gulfstream Pictures.
Having earned a special place in her community, a stellar reputation among her growing list of clients, and the unsurpassed esteem of her colleagues, Cathy is proud of her contributions to Malibu and the greater Southern California region, and of her coveted position among the most successful and sought-after agents with Sotheby’s International Realty.
