Hi, my name is Cathy Stearns and I am the office manager of Chad Stearns Builder, although I have many different jobs and responsibilities…aka “boss lady”, “ I am also Chad’s wife J.  We have two girls, two cats, a dog, and 8 chickens.  If you’re anything like me, you love your family, your pets, and your food!


I was born and raised in the Montgomery/Pike Road area.  I graduated from Jeff Davis High School in Montgomery and went on to college to study business.  I obtained my real estate license and later on my real estate brokers license.  Chad and I decided to homeschool our girls about the same time that Chad Stearns Builder was becoming very busy, so I made the decision to lose a “hat” so to speak…. after much prayer, I decided to put my brokers license on inactive status so I could focus on our business together and our girls education.  And it has been awesome ever since…. I LOVE LOVE LOVE what I do!  Our office is on our property right next to our house so I have the best work environment.  I can open my office door and watch our chickens peck the ground, the cat chase a chipmunk, and our dog lay in the sun…. it’s great!  In my spare time I love to workout, hike, bike, swim, hang out in our yard, cook, and I am currently learning how to play golf…. We’ll see how that goes!!! J Also, I love college football!
