Cathy Pugh, REALTOR®
You won’t find her just standing around as clients make important life decisions. Cathy is the savvy negotiator clients trust to handle contracts and guide them through their real estate investments.
After attending law school, Cathy practiced law in Chicago before moving to Iowa City. As her family grew, she limited her law practice to mediation and focused on keeping the home fires burning while her husband established one of the region’s best law firms, Pugh Hagan Prahm, LLP. Along the way, Cathy discovered that her experience as a lawyer made her uniquely qualified to negotiate real estate contracts and provide buyers and sellers the information they need to make informed decisions.
Born in Chicago and adopted by Iowa, Cathy is an active community volunteer. She and her husband Mike have four children—three are chasing their dreams in Colorado, Wisconsin, and California, and one is headed off to college—and a fur baby, Winnie the Pugh.
