"Cyd went above and beyond the necessary procedures to get my house on the market and sold in an unbelievably short period of time. Her patience and understanding of the difficult process was appreciated. Selling a house is very emotional for an individual but during a pandemic made things even more tricky. I put my faith into the positive, inspiring attitude of Cyd and it all worked out exactly as planned.
I would recommend Cyd to everyone I know. If she could sell my property which was a huge undertaking, she could make the process go smoothly for everyone. I am forever grateful to Cyd. She's the best!"
"Cyd did an amazing job with the remodeling and sale of my condo. She hired the contractors, oversaw all of the work, and put the finished unit on the market while I was able to stay in California. She got a great sale price and did everything with professionalism and grace. I couldn't be more pleased!"
"Cyd knows her stuff! She has a deep knowledge of the Chicago market and has great intuition about her clients. We didn't know what we wanted when we started out and Cyd helped us find our dream home--and close!--within three months. I would highly recommend her to friends, family, and perfect strangers--I can't imagine anyone better at this business!"
""Cyd is a true professional. She helped us transition from a suburban house to a lakeside condo downtown. She prevented us from making costly mistakes. Downsizing
was a pleasurable experience.""
"Cyd did an amazing job marketing my apartment. She provided excellent support during the entire process of putting the condo. on the market, through the multiple offers, to bring the condo to a close.
Her attention to detail is superb and her commitment to get the job done at the satisfaction of her clients- sets her apart from other Real Estate Agents.
"I have found the perfect real estate agent. Cyd Archer has just closed on selling two of my properties and helping my wife and I find an apartment to live in. She was professional, timely, self-motivating and able to adjust from residential sales to selling commercial properties. Cyd was timely and an excellent communicator.
"Cyd was wonderful to work with. She was patient and listened to our needs. As first time home buyers, we weren't sure about the entire process. She took the time to explain everything to us and made sure that we were comfortable with the process. Would highly recommend!"
"I've been through the market twice now with Cyd (buying my first bachelor pad, selling it after I got engaged, and buying my new family home with my fiance) and I know I could not have made it through so successfully without her.
Not only did she help me negotiate a great deal on both purchases, but she also made some great suggestions on the sale of my first condo - netting me a sale price above the previous comps in my building. On top of all of this - she helped me find a great, knowledgable contractor to oversee some minor rennovations on my new, family home and helped guide me through the process as a 1st time "rennovator."
Without a doubt, I would recommend Cyd to any and all who are looking to enter the market in Chicago - either from a sellers or buyers perspective."
""I want to highly recommend Cyd Archer for anyone buying or selling property. I have known Cyd for many years and have used her services for purchase and sale on four separate transactions. She is thorough, patient, honest, and ethical. She understands the market and has mastered the art of understanding her Clients and helping them move in the right direction. Her recommendations on staging helped me to sell my condo in a "hard to sell" building. She gives frank, pleasant advice with out being critical and it works! My property sold for more than units double the size in the same building. The highest that size unit has ever sold for.
Cyd's assistance finding a place for my parents resulted in the perfect location with a beautiful view of the lake in a building where they are safe, secure and well looked after. She was instrumental in guiding them to the right location and negotiated a significant reduction in the price.
I've recommended her to friends and Family and she always comes through. She is reliable, dependable, and tireless in the pursuit of connecting the right property to the Client no matter how many listings it takes!
Cyd watches the details to make sure her Client is protected and the closing goes forward on-time and smoothly. She earns every penny of her commission!"
"I had to find a new place to live in a hurry after some unfortunate family circumstances. Cyd emailed me new listings all the time and we looked at many of them. I found a house I liked and thought I could afford with some . promised family financial help that didn't come through, so we started looking again. Found a house I thought I could afford. After the home inspection, it looked like this property would be a money pit, so we started the search again. Third time was the charm. Cyd will work with you until you find the place that's right for you."
"Cyd Archer listed a property that was purchased just as the bubble burst while my daughter was attending school in Evanston. She worked tirelessly to find buyers in a market crowded by foreclosures and short sales for similar properties while my wife and I were reluctant to join the race to the bottom on asking price. She balanced these two disparate forces and kept on top of every showing and buyers reviews. I can't think of a way to express my gratitude for all her hard work, but to give you this example: Imagine a task that is difficult, if not seemingly impossible, that you are faced with and 10- 20 others that are much easier. The rewards for doing any of them are roughly equal. How much time do you devote to the impossible? Cyd Archer never made us feel like working on our hard listing ever suffered for lack of attention or effort. She was simply the best."
"“Cyd Archer was phenomenal. She checked in with me constantly. She told me what to
expect and what to watch for. I cannot image anything more she could have done.” “Cyd made my experience great. She was a strong advocate for me. She transitioned paperwork quickly and efficiently to my bank and my attorney. (Both of whom commented about how great Cyd is.)”"

"Cyd was very helpful making recommendation on staging the house and how to approach pricing. She made timely & tactful suggestions on maintenance of the property keeping added cost to a minimum.
She was present for all showings and arrived in advance to make sure the house was shown at it best (lights on, curtains open, cushions on outdoor furniture).
We got an offer in 3 weeks and Cyd's did a great job of handling the negotiations.
Even though the lawyers attempted to delay, Cyd followed through to get all the paperwork pushed through for a smooth on-time closing.
I highly recommend Cyd. She is smart, professional, experienced, tactful and ethical. I will use her services for all my future real estate needs."
"“Again, thanks we both found your knowledge, professionalism and attention to detail a big bonus in this process.”"
"“Cyd was truly amazing through the process of selling our home from the initial consult through closing day. As a first time seller, she walked us through each step, communicated proactively, and had an attentive eye to ensure a smooth sale. Cyd works endlessly for who she is representing, and actively takes control to make the process effortless for her clients.”"

"“I sat on the “sidelines” of the housing market for years. I could never seem to find a place that was right for me—until I met Cyd. She’s a consummate professional who has the patience of a saint! And she is totally honest and trustworthy. I cannot say enough good things about her!” Cyd will not bombard you with listings; she’s very picky about what she shows her clients. She always showed me quality places within my budget. Cyd started out as my realtor, but quickly became my friend.”"
"“Cyd is a great real estate broker who treats you like a friend rather than a client. She has terrific follow thru on appointments and is very detail orientated. I purchased a new condo this summer after nearly 2 years of searching with Cyd. She is very professional, patient, and focused on helping her Clients achieve their housing goals as opposed to just making the sale. I definitely will use Cyd again when it comes to buying or selling real estate!”"
"“This is my 7th move and I can say without question you are the best real estate broker with whom I have ever worked. You listened, kept showings in my price range, gave lots of helpful advice for staying in my desired local. And most of all found a beautiful place with that most important feature, a spacious balcony with a wonderful view. Your integrity, professionalism, knowledge, and attention to detail, were greatly appreciated and I would recommend you without hesitation. Thank you.”"
"“Making the decision to invest in a property which we hoped would become our “dream home” was a process which potentially could have been filled with stress and pitfalls. We wanted a broker that was a professional, whom we could trust, who had expert knowledge of the market, would listen to our needs, be patient with our search and guide us through the entire process from searching to closing. We were especially grateful for Cyd’s expertise once the buying and negotiation process began. Her calm personality and comprehensive knowledge of her field, made the process proceed smoothly. We would highly recommend Cyd Archer to anyone who is seeking a true professional in the world of real estate.”"
"“I initially met Cyd back in 2005, when she helped me purchase my condo. Cyd knew the neighborhoods well enough to help me pick the perfect place. She is always quick to respond to any messages and questions that we had. Fast forward ten years….
Selling was the smoothest process we have ever been through. I have no doubt that Cyd has a healthy pipeline of Clients looking to buy property in Chicago. Our condo sold in 2 days.
Cyd is professional, knowledgeable and kind. We highly recommend her.”"
"“We wanted to say a sincere thank you for everything that you’ve done for us this past year. Buying a new place (and dealing with unforeseen circumstances) and selling the bachelor pad-it was a lot, but you made it so easy. We are forever grateful! It may be a while until we need your services again (don’t worry-you are going to get plenty of referrals from us between now and then).”"
"“Cyd is a first class real estate agent. She is professional, knowledgeable, and works on the Client’s behalf. She does everything to make the process go smoothly. I would recommend her without reservations.”"
