Clients are saying:

"Cindy is the absolute best. She embodies the rare combination of smart, calm, intuitive and has tremendous attention to detail. We have used Cindy as a buying agent and a selling agent and it is remarkable to see her skills on both sides. On buying, we found her tireless and constantly optimistic in helping us to find the perfect home, even after a deal fell apart. Then, all of a sudden when we found the perfect place, found ourselves in a bidding war.... with her expert help we won! In selling, her wisdom of the market, and positioning our home for sale, and calm when waiting for our buyer were the perfect assets we needed to get the job done. Amazingly, she sold our home in a historic slowdown, when there were dozens of comparable properties available. I highly and enthusiastically recommend Cindy."
