“I have worked with Cat in building an art collection. She has provided the highest-caliber advice and counsel. She helped me to take an interest and turn it into something significant. Without Cat’s guidance, I would be wasting untold thousands on building an amateurish collection — she is helping me to create a solid investment and legacy for the ages.”
