"We chose Cindy because we know her as an open minded professional with much experience in real estate and a relatability we admire. We met with her to set down new home and location criteria one afternoon and were then excited to start the search. She located many homes that fit our criteria in many different areas and my wife and I did our homework to narrow them down. When we had our options within reason, Cindy was ready to go and show us what they they were in 3 dimensions. It was a quick learning curve for these 2 first time home buyers, but we quickly caught on with our realtors guidance. We went out a few times and fell for a home in an awesome location. Cindy referred us to a loan officer and a home inspector, and walked us through everything from offer to closing and even house warming party suggestions...which we still haven't had :( Overall it was a smooth experience, and it could have been harrowing without our guide! Cindy provided support and security when we most needed it."

"Cindy is great, and did a great job of listening to what we wanted. She also helped us through some stressful negotiations without getting overwhelmed herself."

"We loved working with Cindy! She helped make the home buying process smooth and drama free. Would recommend her to anyone in the area. All of her recommendations were great and she knows the area and the market very well."

"It was our first time buying a home and Cindy helped us throughout the entire process. She helped us find a mortgage broker, a real estate lawyer, and guided us step by step through closing. She always made time for us and took us on multiple showings until we found the place we loved. After that she was always available and helped us negotiate a lower price on the property. Overall great experience and we will be working with Cindy on our next home purchase."

"Working with Cindy was a great experience. She was thorough, quick to respond with any questions, and helped us navigate the home buying process with ease. It was a great feeling to know that as we went through each step, we had someone who was watching out for us and keeping our best interests in mind. Can't recommend her enough."

"Cindy is great! She helped me to buy my first home. Cindy helped me throughout the whole home buying process and put me at ease. She is very knowledgeable and professional. She is very nice and great to work with."

"Cindy was very professional. She had a great knowledge of all of the areas I was looking into (which at first was a pretty wide area). She got a grasp for what I was looking for as well as what part of town would be best suited for me. She also has a great team of folks to recommend for inspection, legal, etc. Anytime I had a question, she was quick to answer. Very professional and great communication about next steps and everything involved. I have already told folks about her, but will continue to do so for anyone that I know looking to buy, sell, etc."

"Cindy helped me buy my first home in Chicago. She explained the process very well. She was professional, flexible and very kind throughout the entire process."

"Cindy helped me buy my first home in Chicago. She was incredibly supportive throughout the entire process, demystifying the complexities along the way. Cindy is very professional and well organized, and was quite flexible with my difficult schedule. I would (and do) recommend Cindy to anyone searching for a place in Chicago!"

"Cindy is a wonderful person to work with. She has a lot of patience and shows joy and personal interest in every apartment as if she is buying it for herself. She made herself available for showings on very short notice. I would definitely recommend her services to all of my friends."

"Cindy was great in helping us buy our first home in a hot market! When we found "the one" she showed us many comparable properties to start the negotiation process. We ended up getting the house under asking!
Without going into detail, there were several frustrating and nerve racking aspects to our closing....Cindy kept us calm and collected. Highly recommended!"

"Cindy has been very helpful during our apartment search. She understood what we were looking for, helped us with the visits and made sure to expedite as smoothly and efficiently as possible the administrative process when we found our apartment."

"I've worked with Cindy a few times already and always come back to her! She recently helped me rent out my condo. She really makes sure she understands what your needs and concerns are and then sets out to find you the best match.
She is very responsive, thorough and always follows up. She can also be trusted to provide good advice, knowing that she does have your best interest at heart.
To top it off, she is super friendly and easy to talk to!"

"Cindy was very knowledgeable and always responded promptly to questions. She was patient with our need to take a break from home shopping for a few months and was never pushy."

"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."

"Cindy was extremely professional, responsive and easy to work with. I would recommend her to any one looking for a new home. I'm so thankful to have had her help and persistence in our apartment search."

"Cindy has been an excellent agent. I believe she is directly responsible for the sale of my house. Being a short sale it was stressful but she went above and beyond to get this done as seamless as possible. I'm very thankful for her. Working with Cindy was a great experience."

"As first time homebuyers, Cindy guided us through the entire home buying process. She was very easy to reach and extremely responsive. In discussing properties she always remained unbiased and viewed everything objectively. Cindy was always patient with us, and provided us with very professional service."

"Cindy was a great asset to us during the home-buying experience. We were first time buyers, and she was patient with all of our questions and requests. Thanks Cindy!"

"Cindy Gaffney did an outstanding job on the sale of my father's home. Her guidance and advice was the key to a successful purchase of the home."

"My experience with Cindy Gaffney was stellar and more than I hoped for. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional and goes the extra mile to ensure a great outcome. Cindy was always responsive and thoughtful about asking the questions that I didn't think to ask. She made me feel as though I was her only client.I highly recommend Cindy Gaffney!"

"Cindy was excellent, given the circumstances of this sale. She provided follow up and took ownership of the process to keep the pressure off of me. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in buying or selling a home."

"Cindy was wonderful. When I was actively looking at listings, she was right with me at every step where I needed assistance. But she was also respectful when I decided to pause my search for a few months and did not over pressure me to look at properties. Ultimately, we found the right home at the right price and at the right time for me, and I could not be more pleased with all aspects of the transaction!"

"We can't say enough about Cindy. She has this way of making you feel like you are her only client. She is professional, knowledgeable, and a true trusted advisor in the home buying process. From selecting a house to closing, Cindy was there for us every step of the way. When service providers failed us, Cindy stepped in and really partnered with us to get everything done quickly so we could close. Her knowledge of the short sale process was extremely valuable. She also wasn't afraid to admit she didn't have the answer to a question we had, but rest assured she always came back to us with the answers or solutions we needed. When the short sale process got tough, Cindy was there to listen and discuss our options. We were not easy clients; we searched properties for over a year and changed our housing type/search area several times. We couldn't imagine getting through our recent search/purchase without her. We would highly recommend Cindy Gaffney to anyone looking to purchase property in Chicago."

"Cindy was terrific. While extremely busy, she always responded promptly to any questions I had and was very thorough, not only regarding the details of the deal, but also in explaining the process. She's terrific!"

"Buying property is usually a stressful undertaking. Not so working with Cindy. She prepared me for the fact that short sales can take some time and kept me informed throughout the process. On day one she determined exactly what I was looking for and sent me listing that fit what I wanted. She was very flexible in arranging times to see properties that were convenient for me and we found my "dream property" quickly. In the process, Cindy has become much more than my real estate agent, she is my friend. As an attorney, I used to do quite a few real estate closings. Cindy is the best I've ever dealt with and I would never consider any other real estate agent."

"The whole purchase process was new to us, as first time home buyers. Cindy did an excellent job at explaining the ins and outs of the process, giving us precious advice on neighborhoods, prices, things to look at when visiting a place etc... She made this whole process so much smoother for us and we managed to find our dream home very quickly!A huge thank you to Cindy for her patience and hard work!"

"This was my first home buying experience and Cindy was absolutely fantastic. She was very patient with me even though I was quite picky and the process took awhile and she was always willing to spend the time explaining anything I needed help with, regardless of how big or small the question was. I could not have done this without her and her excitement when I finally found the right place made it all that much more special for me."
