Working with Cindy made selling our home in Scarsdale very easy. Her initial presentation to us was so impressive that we cancelled our other broker interviews and selected Cindy immediately. Cindy gave us very useful tips to complete the staging of our home and used a photographer who captured the warmth and best features of the property we had loved for 24 years. The price guidance Cindy gave us was right on and we found a buyer in only 3 weeks
Cindy's local knowledge and expertise helped us secure our dream home. She also helped us navigate the sale of our prior home by leveraging her knowledge of the market. From photos to sale she was always responsive and kept us informed. Her calm and straight forward demeanor makes her such a pleasure to work with.
Cindy is an incredible real estate agent. Her professionalism, knowledge of the business, enthusiasm for the job at hand and her creative approach to challenges are all exceptional. I have worked with Cindy personally on two transactions and have referred her to others who have thanked me profusely for the connection. She is available around the clock to answer questions and move the project forward. She is goal oriented, dedicated and results driven. In addition, and of equal importance, she is a delight to work with.

Testimonials

Buyer & Seller

We are so appreciative of Cindy Schwall's expertise in selling our home and buying a new one. We needed to sell our home quickly and, like all home owners, wanted a great price. Our home sold in a weekend with multiple above asking bids, allowing us an easy transaction for the purchase of our new home. We are very pleased.

Michael & Leesa Suzman

Seller

Cindy Schwall knows the local market very well. She has a good eye for what will sell--and her advice on how best to present the house was most valuable. And she diligently followed up with the Village to ensure that we obtained all necessary certifications and documents to complete the  transaction. I would definitely recommend her to others, and in fact have already done so!

Seller

Cindy was a pleasure to work with. She works hard and gets results. She helps in many ways, like getting a lawyer for closing. If I sold a house again, I would choose Cindy.

Seller

Cindy Schwall was highly a contributing factor in the sale of our home. We had an accepted offer in nearly a week and continued to closure in a smooth and seamless manor.

Cindy is great! She knows how things work in an ultra-competitive market like Scarsdale. She is helpful, not pushy, has wide network and most importantly, she works very hard for her clients. She got back to us immediately whenever we had any questions, even sometimes late at night. Whenever we  asked her to find something out, she did so and followed up in a very timely manner. We are glad we hired her and feel that she played a big part in us being able to close a house that we liked.

Victoria

Buyer

Cindy stands apart from so many in Scarsdale because of her down-to-earth style. She guided us in the right direction while looking for a new home. There were many instances where she could nudged us in the direction of a sale, but didn't because she didn't think it was the right move for our  family. We trusted her, continue to, and would again in the future. 

Seller

I could not have chosen a more knowledgeable realtor than Cindy. I never dreamed that I would get such a quick sale for a home that was in a highly trafficked area. I had an accepted offer within three weeks. Cindy makes a terrific buyer's agent as well. She was instrumental in helping me to find  the condo of my dream. Her professional skills are excellent across the board.

Janie

Buyer

Cindy was extremely knowledgeable about the market and gave us a lot of insightful information which really helped us navigate through the tough spring market. She was patient and always there to help. We are very satisfied with her service.

Buyer

Cindy is very helpful in my house searching process. She is very knowledgeable, warm and considerate. You can reach her basically any time - it's not that I'd like call people late at night, but she is available there. You can ask her any question about the property, she can find the answer for  you. She is a local, and very familiar with Westchester area. Great agent! strongly recommend. 

Zhao

Seller

Because of Cindy we sold our house much sooner than expected. She was always open and receptive to hear our concerns. Her guidance and advise about when and how to accept an offer was invaluable. We learned a lot from her and have passed on her advise to friends who are selling their homes. She  was very efficient in getting photo shoot, inspection and everything else arranged. Cindy made the entire process smooth, painless and seemingly easy. We could not have chosen a better agent!

Buyer

We looked for houses on and off for two years before we decided to commit. Cindy was incredibly patient throughout and worked with us every step of the way. Her extensive knowledge about Westchester and the real estate market helped our process run smoothly and took the stress out of buying a home!  We highly recommend Cindy and will absolutely turn to her for our future home buying/selling needs.

Buyer

I have purchased multiple properties (primary and investment) in the last 5 years, and Cindy is the best among the brokers I have worked with. I happened to know Cindy through an open house she hosted about 18 months ago. She continued to follow up with me after that, and we went together to  multiple showings together. I have to be honest that I wasn't 100% serious in the beginning, and she was completely patient along the way. She eventually helped me locate the property in the location and the price range I want. Throughout the closing process, she offered some really useful suggestions, and we finally got the house. She understands the local rental market really well, and we finally got the house rented out at the exact offer price suggested by Cindy in a relatively short period of time.

Cindy was a pleasure to deal with. She is highly knowledgeable, prompt and responsive. I would have no issue recommending her to my friends and family.

Christopher Lim

Seller

Hi Cindy was involved in selling my house in Edgemont and also in the purchase of my current house in Yonkers. The sale occurred during the "great Recession" and she was able to attract two parties that ended bidding the price up.

Buyer

Cindy worked with my wife and I for over two years as we navigated the Scarsdale market. She was extremely helpful in identifying the right homes for us and helping us to see the vision for how a house might be adjusted (colors, walls, finishings) to become a home. It was always Cindy that met  with us to show homes, not an assistant or underling. Her emails were always responsive and she gave us honest advice on each home. When it came down to making an offer on the house that we eventually purchased, Cindy gave us the right advice on the bid(s) / package that helped us to secure our home. If anyone asks, I'd recommend that they work with Cindy.

Buyer

We looked all over the area and Cindy had so much patience, and was so knowledgeable about the homes in our budget. She didn't stop until we found our dream house, and we are so happy!

Buyer

It was a pleasure to work with Cindy. She helped us find and buy our beautiful house. She guided us along the whole complex process of buying. She was very approachable and knowledgeable in our area.

Cindy was very responsive in her communication and really listened to my wants and needs while searching for my home.

She didn't waste my time by showing me homes off focus and I  appreciate that she valued my time as well as hers. I highly recommend her.

Buyer

Cindy recently helped us buy our house in Westchester, and we highly recommend her. She's been doing this a long time, and she knows EVERYTHING! Every nuance, every question to ask, every potential problem to look for. (And when more information was needed on some obscure issue, she immediately  dug into it and got the answer.) On top of which, her honest, direct, "get it done" personality and demeanor made her a total pleasure to work with. Nothing fazed her -- not even our chronic indecisiveness! We were first time buyers, and Cindy guided us through the whole process, helping solve the myriad of obstacles that inevitably come up. We felt incredibly fortunate to have Cindy on our team, and cannot recommend her highly enough.

Buyer and Seller

Cindy Schwall is the Best! She is professional, intelligent, compassionate and extremely patient. We met at an open house and signed with Cindy to sell our house at our next meeting. Her down to earth personality and strong confidence won us over immediately. We had a CO issue, we needed some  contractor's quotes and had many late night fears. Done, done done! Cindy went to the village with us, interviewed contractors with us and calmed our nerves often. She will be your 24/7 support from staging to closing. We highly recommend Cindy. You will be working with the best!

Seller

Cindy was great! She had great advice about getting our house ready to list. She helped us time and price our listing to attract several potential buyers resulting in an optimal result. She is very professional and made the process less stressful. I would definitely recommend Cindy to others.

Cindy Schwall was referred to us by our daughter who sold and purchased homes through her services. We were more than impressed with our experience with her!! She follows through with every detail and was extremely supportive at the closing of our property when an issue came up that she resolved  immediately preventing a possible delay! We found her to be so supportive through our selling process which was extremely stressful for us after living in our home for 50 years! We totally recommend Cindy!

Cindy is so knowledgeable and wonderful to work with. There are so many things about buying a house in New York that we didn’t know we needed to know.

We recently sold our home in Scarsdale. Cindy was an excellent agent. I would highly recommend her. She priced our home competitively- we got 3 bids the first week, ultimately selling for over ask.

She has excellent judgement and was a pleasure to work with

She always was attentive to our needs and accommodating to our schedules during the search process. What further set her apart from other brokers in our prior experiences was the fact that she is not pushy at all and was extremely patient during our search and respected our timeline. Would highly recommend.

Tim & Betsy Ricks

We elected you to handle the sale of my sister's home on 8 Kent Rd., Scarsdale because we felt you would do the best job in getting this house sold as quickly as possible for the best price.  You proved yourself immediately by advising us with the right asking price and predicting a bidding war which led to the quick sale.  Furthermore, your availability, support and continuous assistance in providing us with names of local services until the house was completely empty in time for closing of the sale.  Should anyone want to know more about you, I will gladly recommend you.  Thanks again for everything.

Margrit Platoff

Buyer

Cindy Schwall made me feel like she was on my side throughout.  She never got frustrated when our first two deals fell through.  She patiently waited until the seller came back and guided me through the bidding like a real professional.  I would recommend Cindy to anyone looking for a house in the area.

I really thought it would take several months, at least, to find a buyer.  It therefore seemed quite unbelievable when offers started coming in on the 3rd day, and when the ultimate buyer agreed to the asking price within 2 weeks!.....I appreciated the professionalism and energy with which you handled the project from the beginning.  It was very helpful to us that you always stayed on top of the details, and kept us fully informed along the way.

Her knowledge and experience in Scarsdale's real estate really helps to make educated decisions as to how much the property should be worth. She always had my best interests at heart during the process of looking, negotiating and in the process of closing. I am very happy with Cindy's service and I would recommend her to anyone planning to purchase property in Scarsdale.

 

Kookie & Miranda Cheng

Seller

Cindy found us the one marginal buyer that was willing to pay asking price our 40 day time window, it was hard work for all parties involved, but in the end it shows: 1) that house was perfectly priced & 2) perfect deal execution.  You can’t ask for more than “double” perfect.

Christian

Buyer

Cindy was great to work with.  She listened to what our likes and dislikes were and really did a great job weeding through the listings and showed us properties that were all potential buying opportunities.  Looking forward to working with her again on both the buy and sell side when it is time for a bigger home.
