"Luxury Real Estate Broker"
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).
Top Agent Magazine, which spotlights the premier real-estate professionals throughout the United States, Europe, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, features Cindi in its July 2017 issue.
