Our Story

Cathy Bade arrived in Jacksonville in 1996 after her family decided to relocate from Queens, New York.  After she got her husband, John, and their 3 children settled into their new lives, Cathy decided to explore the city and see what it offered her.  Coming from a customer service background, she became involved in the restaurant business in the Southside, Intracoastal area of the city.  Her outgoing and caring personality gave her opportunities to network with many of her patrons which led to her decision to take her real estate course and become an associate with Watson Realty Corp. in 2000.

When Cathy joined the real estate community, she knew she had found her niche.  She loves helping others and it is apparent when you talk with her customers as they use phrases such as “compassionate and caring”, “best service ever”, “this is the third house we have bought and sold through Cathy”, and “We always recommend her to our family and friends”.  Working with Cathy is a simple and carefree process, giving her customers the assurance that their property sale or purchase will be handled by a professional.  In 2004 when John joined his wife they formed a team of professionals that can be everywhere at once, and that’s where “We work hard so you don’t have to” became our motto.

Understanding the ageless concept of customer service is why our business continues to grow every year.  Referrals from our past customers have allowed us to be top producing agents year after year.

We use our insights to introduce families and individuals to the Jacksonville Intracoastal area, Ft. Caroline areas and the Beaches by expertly guiding them through their relocation needs.  We are certified distressed property experts (CDPE) and are committed to helping homeowners with short sales showing them that there are other options besides losing their home to foreclosure.

We strive to educate our customers to the best of our ability and guide them every step of the way.  We are always here to help and will give you an honest assessment and answer any question you may have with your Real Estate needs.

Here you will find a wide variety of useful information and resources designed to help you buy or sell a home more effectively in the Jacksonville area.  From information on the local community, to advice about finding a mortgage or preparing your home to sell, it’s all available here on our website, badeteam.com.
