Cathy Chochon - Broker Associate


Full Circle Real Estate Group

316 W. Main Street / PO Box 3028 Buena Vista, CO 81211

Cathy Chochon (pronounced “sho-hawn”) moved to Chaffee County in 2005 and feels blessed to be living in such an incredible area. She grew up in rural Nebraska in a town similar in size to Salida, so she appreciates all that small towns offer. Known for being a “straight shooter”, she lays out the pros and cons of properties with clients so they are fully confident with their real estate decisions.

Cathy holds a bachelor's degree in Business Administration from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. Her contract experience started immediately after college while working for the State of Nebraska on traffic safety related issues. Twelve years and hundreds of contracts later she moved to Chaffee County to enjoy life without tornadoes, mosquitoes, and humidity.

Prior to real estate Cathy worked for local general contractor Moltz Construction as a Project Coordinator for 8 years. There her marketing and contract experience broadened while compiling proposals and contracts for multi-million dollar water and wastewater treatment plant projects.

She brings a wealth of contract experience and enjoys helping clients learn the importance in the details of property boundaries, water law, and homeowners associations. Cathy is known for being detail oriented, which is demonstrated in her thorough research of properties. As she puts it, “I get a kick out of digging in and discovering small issues and addressing them before they blow up into actual problems.”

She considers herself a “lifelong learner” who is constantly seeking out learning opportunities. She completed the Graduate Real Estate Institute (GRI) designation in 2022 and obtained the Seniors Real Estate Specialist designation earlier this year.  This additional education helps her better convey information to clients.


Cathy lives in Salida and in her spare time is active in her church and enjoys taking her jeep out exploring old mining sites as well as other “off the map” sites. She has served as Chair of the Board of Directors for the Realtors® of Central Colorado (ROCC) and is the current Secretary for the 275 member organization.  She was awarded the Realtor® of the Year - North award in both 2020 and 2022 by her colleagues in ROCC.
