Meet our team

Stephanie Cathey

Stephanie’s first experience in Real Estate began when she was a teenager, working the phones at the front desk of a local RE/MAX Office on the weekends. Little did she know that while she was setting appointments and putting together listing packets, she would be preparing herself for her future career in the same field!

Her Mother and Stepfather worked together in commercial real estate, and her Uncle (who Stephanie sees more as a father than an Uncle) taught her the ropes of investment residential real estate! Stephanie worked for a top producing team in Orlando as an assistant and learned the back end of the real estate transaction, putting her in a better position to properly negotiate and represent her buyers and sellers when she did finally take the leap to full time real estate agent.

The same year she made that jump, Stephanie married her husband, Mike Cathey, a nationally ranked mortgage loan officer. Shortly after, Stephanie and Mike had two beautiful boys, Lennon and Jagger, who are the light of their lives.

During this time, she obtained her Broker’s License, and closed over $25,000,000 in real estate volume year after year – quickly qualifying her for the RE/MAX Hall of Fame Award – all in less than 3 years.

Other awards include 2019 Volusia/Flagler Counties Top 40 Under 40, multi-year Platinum Club Award Winner, and 2018 WCR’s Humanitarian of the Year Award for founding and running Lennon’s Lunchbox, a local 501(c)3 aimed at refilling the past due lunch accounts of children – preventing them from the stigma of publicly having their lunch taken from their hands and replaced with an “alternative lunch”, as well as the worry of bullying or not knowing whether or not they will have the money to eat lunch.

During the 2020 pandemic, The Cathey Team has had its biggest year yet, and they know the best is yet to come. Stephanie prides herself on her “People Over Profit” mentality, and has built a team who focuses every day on just that, taking care of people!

Nicole Schlaffer

Nicole has always had a passion and desire to work in real estate! After moving from Pittsburgh, PA to sunny Florida, she joined up with Stephanie in 2017 to form The Cathey Team! Nicole, her husband, and their 2 cats currently reside in Volusia County where they enjoy lots of beach time and going to the nearby theme parks!

In Nicole’s first year as a full-time agent, she found herself in the top 5% of her fellow Realtors, an accomplishment that is not easily achieved by most seasoned agents. Additionally, being a member of so many Florida MLS boards, they often have sales and volume not reported to their home board – meaning she likely out performed many agents ranked in the top 5% and even top 1% locally.

She works tirelessly and always puts client’s needs above any other. Having purchased her own home with her husband, she knows the importance of having someone trustworthy and hardworking by your side, and prides herself on making the home buying or selling process a fun and stress free experience!

David Hansen

David was born and raised in Marion County, Fl. He currently lives in Ocala with his wife Christy and their two dogs. David first learned about the real estate market working for an Appraisal Management Company as well as a subsidiary of one of the largest wholesale Mortgage Companies in the country.

He later transitioned into becoming a full time Real Estate Agent in 2018. Since becoming a Realtor, David has assisted countless first time home buyers, seasoned vets, as well as investors alike with all of their real estate needs. In his first 3 years of real estate, he has secured 50 transactions, totaling over $9 million in volume as a brand new independent agent. 

In 2020, Stephanie noticed the hardworking, honest, genuine nature that David poured into his business – and asked him to join her on The Cathey Team at RE/MAX Signature. Since then, his business has skyrocketed. With an insurmountable amount of tools and resources available at his fingertips, David has the know how and ability to negotiate on your behalf, making you the most on your real estate purchase!

Alex Folsom

Alex, although the team member newest to real estate, she has worked for the Cathey family for years. Alex is first and foremost and mother and wife. She has two boys, similar in age to Stephanie’s, named Finn and Maverick.

Alex met Stephanie when Stephanie hired her to nanny her children, and she quickly became part of the family. Stephanie quickly noticed Alex’s kind nature, ability to problem solve, patience, and organizational skills. 

In the years they have known each other, The Cathey Team has doubled their business in volume, and those same organizational skills and her friendly personality made her the perfect Administrative Specialist for The Cathey Team.

She’s currently enrolled in real estate school, and soon hopes to have her real estate license, so her duties can go beyond administrative work, and she can help our customers by answering real estate related questions and put her problem solving skills to use.

The Cathey Team’s customers love chatting with Alex, and she has the ability to make everyone feel special, feel heard, and always makes every customer feel like our only customer….something we pride ourselves in!
