Specializing in Chicago Real Estate, Cindy can help you find the home of your dreams! 

Cindy has been a licensed real estate agent since 2006 and joined @properties in 2010. She enjoys building rapport with her clients, exploring the possibilities different homes offer and, especially, seeing clients’ eyes light up once they find their perfect homes. Whether you are a first-time home buyer or an experienced seller, her approachable demeanor and professionalism will make for an enjoyable experience.

In addition to serving Chicagoland buyers and sellers, Cindy’s real estate expertise includes sales of residential developments throughout Chicago’s north side. She is a Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE) and an Accredited Distressed Property Representative (ADPR).

Cindy has an extensive background in managing school and senior living food programs, which includes planning and overseeing the construction of more than seven new kitchens and the renovation of many more. She draws on her personal history of collaborating with architects, designers and contractors on these large projects to easily coordinate communication between building developers and her clients during the home customization stage. She can easily break down industry jargon and can also read blueprints and understand electrical and plumbing codes.

Just as important as customizing a home to your specifications, is knowing that your agent has the knowledge and capabilities to get you the best price on what is often the largest purchase you will ever make. Because of her CNE designation, Cindy has the advantage of using the proven CNE negotiating techniques to help obtain a price that is fair and one you are comfortable with.

Cindy is originally from the Rockford area where she attended Rockford College and earned a BA in Business Administration and a minor in Computer Science. She currently resides in the Andersonville neighborhood. Her favorite things about Chicago are the energy of city life, the beautiful lakefront and the diversity of its many neighborhoods. When she is not helping buyers find the homes of their dreams, she spends much of her time at the adoption center at PAWS Chicago where she helps animals find their forever homes. Her other hobbies include biking and creating wheel-thrown pottery and acrylic painting at Lillstreet Art Center.  

Clients are saying:

"This is the second house I’ve purchased with Cindy. She was patient and understanding as I offered on multiple houses during this busy market. I always recommend Cindy to any friends or family looking to buy or sell."

"Cindy was very patient with me and plans ahead. When one buyer fell though, she reached out to another one earlier offer. We were able to sell the property with a cash offer about 3 weeks from listing!"

"Extremely patient and very knowledgeable"

"My fiance and I were first time home buyers and were very excited but also a little overwhelmed by the process. Cindy was so friendly and responsive from our very first meeting through our closing. She was a pleasure to work with and we will definitely be using her again on our next purchase!"

"Cindy is kind, funny, patient, and flexible. She gave us ownership of the process of choosing homes while bringing her expertise to help us know what we would be getting in to in different homes. I would absolutely recommend her to my friends and family."
