"Cynthia has been a wonderfully helpful agent for these first-time homebuyers, consistently opening up her schedule to meet with us on a whim for a walkthrough or handle (lots and lots of) paperwork. Her referrals to other individuals required for home-buying are top notch, knowledgeable and always very thorough."



"I cannot say enough good things about Cynthia and our experience with her. From her thorough market research before listing our home, to ensuring a smooth closing, she was exceptional! She truly went above and beyond in order to help sell our home in a short time, in a highly competitive and saturated market. In addition to being a top-notch realtor, she was always a pleasure to work with and we knew that she genuinely cared about our family's experience. I would also highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home as well. Her acute business sense, as well as being a mother and active community member, would be an invaluable asset in any home search. Simply put, she is the best!"



"There is absolutely nothing Cynthia could have done better. She priced our house perfectly and targeted buyers she knew were looking for similar properties. After we were under contract, Cynthia continued to think of ways to help without request. She was like a fairy godmother! Her attention to detail and grace under pressure were remarkable. I simply cannot say enough wonderful things about her."



"Cynthia did a stellar job finding our dream home and I would absolutely recommend her to family and friends! We were limited on time but Cynthia did the leg work and was incredibly knowledgeable about every neighborhood and price point so we were able to narrow down our search and choices significantly - saving time. Cynthia honed in on viable options that fit with the style of home we wanted but also in the price point we needed. Not only did she negotiate an incredible price, but stood by us throughout the process from negotiation, to inspection, to walk thru, to closing - never missing a beat. She had multiple recommendations in terms of roofer, painter, lawn - Cynthia is a one stop shop and was available to us at every stage. She is a true professional with a buttoned up yet down to earth friendly personality. We couldn't of done it without her!"



"Cynthia Tobin is a very talented, personable, trustworthy, caring agent who is very knowledgable about the current local market. She went above and beyond with her time and effort in selling our home. Cynthia researched and priced our house fairly, was always accessible, and answered all of our questions and concerns patiently. She also gave us helpful information for presenting our home in the best possible light for prospective buyers. Cynthia did all of this legwork while frequently checking up on our house as we were making a long distance move. Combined with her winning personality and great negotiating skills, we give her our highest recommendation!"



"Cynthia was the best.
We searched for over a year and saw countless properties. Cynthia was extremely patent and continued to find homes for us to view. We bid on a couple of properties we saw potential in but felt we’re over-priced. Finally, we found our house in the perfect location in Lake Forest with Cynthia ensuring a smooth purchase.
Then—she sold our initial property in 2 weeks with multiple offers!!
I enthusiastically recommend Cynthia for buying or selling your home."



"We recently relocated from Darien, Connecticut and came into the North Shore market as complete outsiders. No family, no connections, no idea of where we wanted to live. Cynthia quickly became our eyes and ears while trying to find a house from a distance. She asked the right questions about our family and housing needs and was very patient and nurturing throughout the tiring process. Cynthia returned emails and phone calls immediately, followed up with other brokers every day, and made us feel like our search was a priority. We have bought, sold and leased homes in the past and have never had someone work so hard for us. We could not be happier in our current home in Lake Forest and owe the success of this move to Cynthia. We could not recommend her more highly."



"My husband and I recently had the pleasure of working with Cynthia Tobin on the sale of our home, and we could not have been happier. We have bought and sold multiple homes over the years, but the level of service we received from Cynthia and her team was above and beyond anything we've experienced. She was straightforward, detail-oriented, and diligent with regard to every aspect of the sale. Following Cynthia's advice and the expertise of her staging team, we were able to hit the market with a stand-out listing and received multiple offers our first weekend on the market. Cynthia deftly navigated us through the entire process and we ultimately sold our home at a price that exceeded our expectations. My husband and I highly recommend Cynthia and only wish we could work with her on our upcoming purchase on the east coast!"



"Cynthia was phenomenal. She was knowledgeable, personable, hardworking, and honest. She delivered on everything she promised, we couldn't be happier."



"Cynthia was fantastic! We were moving from our New Jersey home of 28 years to Illinois to be closer to our family.. We were so excited to find a home close to our grandchildren! Cynthia was incredibly helpful in making our move possible and helping us through the process. There was Never a time when Cynthia was not there for us. She is a true professional. Her expertise and extreme caring and thoughtfulness was so comforting when making our decisions. Thank you so much to Cynthia. She is not only our Realtor but we are blessed to call her our friend."

"Cynthia Tobin is absolutely fabulous! She is very easy to work with, no pressure ever. Very knowledgeable and responsive...and patient! She makes sure that you find the house that's right for your family."



"Cynthia did a wonderful job finding us the perfect home. We started with very broad location/home style preferences, and over time, Cynthia provided us with a clear path to targeting what was right for us. She backed up her pricing guidance and thoughts with factual data and made us comfortable all along the way that we were covering all bases. Once we found the right house, Cynthia was diligent in communicating with the sellers, vendors, and attorneys. She went above and beyond in facilitating the actual transaction. Overall, we had a great experience working with her."



"We relocated from Connecticut to the North Shore recently and had no connections to the area. Cynthia was recommended by a mutual friend, and we are so thankful we found her! She helped us navigate the decision between buying and renting and never made us feel like we were wasting her time on "just a rental" like other realtors in the area. She patiently researched all our options and responded immediately to all our requests. She successfully negotiated our lease and followed through on every last detail. We can't say enough good things about her. A true professional."
