For a number of months before my husband and I decided to list our house, we had become acquainted with a very pleasant young woman, who frequently walked through our neighbourhood, handing out her business card, sheets of current real estate info and even some tasty cookie recipes. She was obviously a "people person" and was taking the time to get to know the residents on our street and letting all of us get to know her. Cyndi Polovina was a brand new realtor, and wasn't afraid to put her smiling face "out there". With her fresh enthusiasm and cheerful personality, she became quite memorable, especially when we started to think of selling our home.
We loved our home in Mission where we had enjoyed many years, but our lives were changing and it was time to downsize. We had viewed a beautiful place out of town that we very much wanted to purchase. It was perfect for us and for our upcoming retirement years. However, to make the offer firm on that house, we would need to sell our house quickly. We thought of Cyndi instantly. She was such an amiable person and clearly throughout the year, she had been trying very hard to get to know us...and become familiar with the neighbourhood. We wanted to give her a chance to work for us but we hesitated. Simply because we appreciated that she was very new and for that reason, we were uncertain if she had the skills to meet our needs.
We knew a mortgage broker, who had been a friend of our family for many years, and asked him to recommend someone who would give our listing the attention we felt it deserved. As it turned out, he mentioned Cyndi's name without any hesitation whatsoever, and described her as being an individual who would work extremely hard to get the job done. With all the realtors out there, we were impressed that she was the first person that came to his mind. At that point, our confidence in her was confirmed and we immediately asked her to come and list our home.
We carefully explained our situation and the importance of selling quickly and of course, we told her we needed to get the very best price possible. As soon as we signed with her, Cyndi became very focused and was immediately hard at work for us. Much to our surprise and delight, Cyndi had our house sold in 5 days. Her research and study of the current market had helped her to price it perfectly, and to make matters even better, we got more than the asking price.
In our many years together, my husband and I have owned a few homes and believe me, this was the most painless and the most prosperous sale in the history of our real estate ventures. We couldn't be happier ...and guess what; we were able to purchase that new house that we wanted!
Sell with Cyndi! You won't regret it.
