Cindi Sodolski, CNE; Broker
Focusing on luxury residential, first-time home buyers, new construction and rehabbed properties
Cindi Sodolski has earned several awards for her excellence in representing both buyers and sellers, but she believes the highest honor is the fact that about 98 percent of her business comes from referrals. Clients who have worked with Cindi say they refer friends and family for several reasons.
Personal attention. Whether she is listing a home or helping clients find a property to buy, clients work directly with Cindi.
Availability. People who work with Cindi know they can reach her around the clock; she’s available when they’re available.
Trustworthiness. Clients rely on Cindi to bring a high degree of integrity to their relationship. In a field where confidentiality and ethics are paramount, Cindi is a standout.
Negotiation skills. Cindi’s designation as a certified negotiation expert (CNE) means she negotiates the best possible outcome on behalf of her clients. This is especially advantageous for sellers, who constitute a large part of Cindi’s business.
Attention to detail. Her detail-oriented approach means that Cindi stays on stop of every aspect of a sale, from the initial meeting through showings, home inspections, negotiations — all the way until closing (although her relationships with clients continue well after the ink is dry on a contract).

Clients are saying:
"Cindi was wonderful to work with! She is patient and positive, and will not give up until she finds her clients the most perfect home. She is honest and knowledgeable and I felt like I was in great hands at every point during my search, from day one until closing. Cindi also made the experience of buying my first home fun and enjoyable, and I have no doubt that her energy, dedication and hard work made all the difference."
"I worked with Cindi Soldoski on the sale of my house. This was not an easy sale. The house was vintage and needed updating, we had moved out of state with 4 kids, the real estate market was somewhat "soft," and, truth be told, I can be quite demanding in my real estate transactions. Cindi navigated these challenges seamlessly and delivered top notch service throughout the process from initial price research, marketing, showings and to the final negotiations.
Cindi exhibited first rate knowledge of the real estate market on the north side of Chicago and combined this with outstanding client service. She was available whenever we needed her, which was a lot given that we were out of state and the house was not occupied.
In addition to Cindi's first-rate skills in the marketing and selling of the home, she provided a great personal touch both to us and potential buyers. We received very positive unsolicited feedback from several of our neighbors who viewed our home complimenting Cindi on her brokerage skills during showings of the property.
I would provide Cindi the highest recommendation to any of my friends or colleagues if they are planning to sell their home. I have sold 4 single family properties on the north side of Chicago in the last 15 years and Cindi was by the far the finest realtor I have worked with."
"Cindi is professional, knowledgeable about the Chicago real estate market, and hard-working. I had a great experience with her to sell my condo."
"Cindi was an absolute pleasure to work with, very professional, motivated and knowledgeable!"
"Cindi was wonderful to work with. She was incredibly responsive, knowledgeable, and helped me through the entire home-buying experience. I would wholehearted recommend her to anyone, especially a first time homebuyer like myself."
