“Working with Cindee and Michael was an extremely pleasant experience. After being on the market for many months with a previous agent who showed me little results, I contacted Cindee and Michael who where local experts. When we met they showed me an exact plan of how they would sell my home, something my previous agent never did. After they brought their stager to my home and professional photographer my home was ready to come on the market for the second time. After they placed my home on the market, I was so happy to hear we had multiple offers over the asking price after the first weekend. I couldn’t believe the results they achieved for me. After my previous agent was unable to sell my home I thought there was something wrong with it. Cindee & Michael showed me it was all about the marketing and presentation of the home. Please call them if you need a team that you can trust. I’m sure they can do the same for you.” – Dano Family
“I sold my home at 5532 E Vista Del Rio. I previously had it listed with another broker who failed to sell the home in 114 days. Cindee & Michael were able to sell the home in 52 days. I was excited to hear that the home sold for the highest price in this floor plan since 2007. When it came time to list the home for sale once again, I interviewed several agents. Cindee & Michael were able to achieve multiple offers for me as well. I chose to work with Cindee & Michael because their marketing plan was more thorough than anyone else we interviewed and they proved that they had the most market knowledge. The thing that impressed me the most about Cindee & Michael was their consistent communication, their negotiation skills, and their understanding of the appraisal process. When it came down to it I knew they were always looking out for our best interests! If I had to do it over, I’d definitely hire Cindee & Michael again!” – John Showers
“This is actually my second review for this excellent team of agents. The first was finding me a place in 2012 and now it is for the sale of my investment home. By far my go-to-team due to their A+ results in an insane market as in 2012 and now in 2015. Once it was ready it came to the market mid-week and immediately showings were coming in back to back. The open house was that weekend for two days and by the next Tuesday 3 offers were on the table. In only one week the offers were already at over asking! Thanks to their excellent negotiating skills with the buyers, they were able to negotiate an offer 40K above asking price! So to recap they sold my place in 1 week, with plenty of offers on the table creating a bidding war and therefore sold it for me for way above ask. And the overall process was easy as cake regarding keeping in touch, recommending a termite company, inspector, fumigation, paperwork, and even a carpet guy. They continued to impress me and I will definitely be using them to sell my current place next year as well.” – Christopher Aleman
“Cindee and Michael turned our listing around and had it sold in no time. They were so professional and navigated with a very difficult buyer. They kept it together and made the transaction come together. We spent a few months on the market with no traction with our previous agent. Cindee & Michael were able to come through on everything they promised which was refreshing. Not to mention they sold our home for one of the highest prices in the city in years. I would recommend them to anyone to either buy or sell a home.” – John Lake
