REHOBOTH BEACH, DE April, 29, 2013 Long & Foster® Real Estate, Inc., the largest independent residential real estate company in the United States, welcomes Cathy Basenese to its Rehoboth Beach office, in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Basenese will specialize in working with homebuyers and sellers.

Cathy was a longtime resident of New Jersey and like most people who visit Rehoboth Beach she fell in love with the area and now calls the beach home. Prior to moving to Delaware much of Cathy’s career was spent in corporate America, as a Business Consultant for a Fortune 500 Company. Her success in the corporate world was due in part to her attention to detail, her unsurpassed commitment to customer service and her unwavering loyalty to both her external and internal clients.

Cathy is proud to join Long & Foster in Rehoboth Beach to pursue her dream of real estate. Cathy’s decision to enter into the field of real estate comes from her passion to buy, renovate, and decorate and of course from her pure love of house hunting. Over the years Cathy has bought, renovated, designed and sold several homes and has developed a great design sense as well as a wealth of construction knowledge.

Whether you are buying or selling, Cathy’s passion for real estate and her desire to assist people in making one of the most important decisions of their lives as well as her belief in home ownership makes her a perfect choice to assist you in all your real estate needs.

“Let me put my passion to work for you together we will put the beach in your reach”


“The dynamics of today’s residential real estate market are constantly changing. Completing our Star Builders program has provided Cathy with the right tools to meet those changing dynamics,” said Gary Scott, president of Long & Foster Real Estate Inc. “We welcome Cathy to Long & Foster, a company that has helped local buyers and sellers reach their homeownership goals for more than 40 years.”
