For over 30 years Cindy has represented both buyers and sellers as a residential Realtor, first in her native Ohio and for the past 20 years on Chicago’s North Shore. She is Proactive, Knowledgeable, and totally Committed to each and every client she represents.
Your Home is an Investment
Buying a home is a huge financial investment. Cindy knows that in order to help clients make informed decisions, agents must be informed themselves. To accomplish this, Cindy has a routine of previewing homes daily as new ones are listed, in order to stay on top of the ever changing inventory. This allows her to mentally compare not just the typical room count in pricing, but condition, improvements, location, and overall feel - those intangibles you can't read on listing sheets. She also attends classes regularly to stay sharp and current with new market trends, attends conferences and continues to learn something new each day.
When her clients are ready to make an offer, Cindy thoroughly researches comparable homes and other relevant information to share with her buyers so that they are comfortable with their offering price. She does the same meticulous work before she attends a listing presentation. She points out all the positives as well as the negatives including possible resale issues.
Having purchased and lived in 3 homes in Northfield and one in Winnetka in the past 20 years, Cindy knows her market areas well. Each town, each community, each village is unique- its schools, amenities, size and price points. She has listed and sold homes from Lakeview to Gurnee, and as far west as Schaumburg. She goes where her clients lead her, but the North Shore and border communities are her prime market area.
Cindy has a warm, laid back personality with an easy smile and a "no worries" attitude, but don't let that fool you. With her years of experience as a Realtor and with her training as an attorney ( non-practicing), she is a fierce advocate for her clients. She is a strong negotiator, is proactive, and can troubleshoot issues before they become problems. Her clients love the fact that she is always accessible and answers texts and calls as quickly as possible.
“There’s No Place Like Home”
Cindy uses this phrase in her ads because to most people, a home is so much more than a financial investment. It is a personal haven, that place you can’t wait to get back to after time away. It is a place to be alone surrounded by things you love, or a place to welcome friends and loved ones. So whether you need a one bedroom condo, a home to raise a family, or an empty nester retreat, Cindy would love to help you find that house that YOU will make your home.

Clients are saying:
"Cindy was our agent when we purchased our first home. We loved her! Great personality, warm, funny, but super knowledgeable about the real estate market. She listened to what we were looking for and patiently showed us homes until we found the one we wanted. When it was time to sell that house and buy a larger home, we called Cindy. Again, with her knowledge of the market, her patience, and good advice we found an amazing house. She looked at it first, called us and said we had to see it right away. We did, and it was love at first sight. We recommend her to all our friends and feel lucky that we met her. Thank You Cindy! We love our home!"
"Buying a house is already a special life event, Cindy made it even more special. Her tireless efforts in understanding what we were looking for and then providing options really made it easy for us to find the right home. Cindy knows the industry and understands real estate. My wife and I were lucky having someone of Cindy's caliber on our side working for our best interests."
"Cindy helped us buy a condo in Chicago 5 years ago. So when it was time to get a single family home, we did not hesitate to work with Cindy again. And we are so glad that we did because without Cindy, we would not have been able to get our current house. Cindy spent a lot of time with us so that we could narrow our search to find the perfect house. After that, she helped us navigate the long and tedious mortgage process (ours was very complicated). Along the way, she provided us with encouragement and advice. We would definitely work with Cindy again in the future if we had the need to find another property. We enthusiastically recommend Cindy to our friends and family!"
"This is our second purchase, and Cindy was perfect for us. She let us dictate the pace of things, but the moment we had any issues, or our inexperience began to show, she was there for us in a heartbeat. She was the best part of our buying experience."
