Cathy Starkweather, REALTOR®

As a top 1% of all agents on Zillow/Trulia; member of ORRA Top Producer Club and multi-million dollar agent, a lot of my success is due to the commitment I give to buyers and sellers. A full time Realtor with LaRosa Realty, my ENTIRE focus is on real estate. I connect clients with the expert professionals that best fit their purchase type and location needed for a smooth transaction, including property management, banking, lending, accounting, contractor services and more. Whether you’re a first time home buyer or purchasing your third investment property from abroad, you’ll appreciate the additional guidance I provide.



Born and raised in Central Florida and a University of Central Florida alumni I have an understanding of the Central Florida market that is unsurpassed. I’m committed and ethically driven to give the best service possible. My goal is to ensure I find the perfect primary, second, vacation or investment home for buyers and assure sellers receive the best value when selling their home. Then end result, delighted buyers and sellers… many have said the attention I give and guidance throughout the entire process made them feel as though they were my only client. I’ve helped many families achieve the American dream of owning a home, which is such an incredibly rewarding feeling! Sellers and buyers become friends, I have amazing friends all over the world!

I’m honored to work with active and retired military men and women as well as local service workers. As a thank you for your service, a credit at closing towards closing costs is given on my behalf.

“Helping you fulfill a dream of finding your next home.”

I have a passion for helping people and turning dreams into reality. Real Estate is not just a job or another transaction for me, it’s a process of building relationships that will remain long after we have left the closing table. When you work with me, you will always get a smile and an honest answer.

Born and raised in Pennsylvania I understand first hand the desire to call Florida home. I’m committed and driven to give each & every client undivided attention to help find the perfect property. Both myself and my mentor, Cathy, strive to give every client we work with 200% customer satisfication. Our goal is to not only meet our clients expectations but to exceed our clients expecatations!
