The following testimonials were written by just some of my happy sellers and buyers. They have all been kind enough to give me permission to show you their correspondence. Their letters and words are very gratifying. It seems that my down-to-earth and honest approach has earned me many friends - I think that's fantastic!

VH TestimonialWe wholeheartedly recommend Cyndi

"We cannot say enough about the great experience we had with Cyndi working on our behalf as our Realtor; her personal touch, attention to detail and extensive knowledge, made our selling and buying experience a very positive one.  We wholeheartedly recommend Cyndi to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."  Grant and Jill V.H.

 Above and Beyond

Cyndi helped guide us in selling our home and buying our new home.  During this time, she has gone above and beyond what we had expected from any Realtor. During the sale of our house, she was of great assistance. From advising us on renovations to assisting us in dealings with City Hall. She thinks outside the box and because of that, along with the respect she has gained from other Realtors helped us find our new home. She guided us step by step and made us aware of not only bylaws but also pointed out features of a house that may or may not suit our family. She truly cares about her clients. With Cyndi, you're in good hands. We highly recommend her for anyone looking to buy or sell their home.”

Outstanding Professional Service

We have bought and sold several houses, and our experience with Cyndi has given us the opportunity to realize the quality of service that a realtor can provide. Cyndi truly cares about her clients and provides outstanding professional service.  She is patient, kind, and considerate and truly wants you to be happy and confident in your decision.  She also really has your best interest in mind.  We would recommend you have Cyndi represent you.
N and R McKinnon

Patience and Professionalism

"Cyndi recently acted as our agent for both the purchase of a house in Maple Ridge and the sale of our house in Vancouver.  She spent many weekends over a five month period arranging and escorting us to viewings and went above and beyond the call of duty in researching and answering any questions we had.  She also spent alot of time and effort getting to know our Vancouver residence area and the market there and we were very pleased with the outcome of our sale. We appreciated her patience and professionalism over this rather stressful time and were more than satisfied with the outcome of both ventures.
I would highly recommend her as an agent to anyone venturing into the real estate market."
K. McKenzie

I highly recommend Cyndi!

"Cyndi is a very competent, intelligent and resourceful realtor.  She was excellent in keeping us informed and in acting promptly on our behalf.  She had incredibly good insight, and forethought wording her documents, and protected us from complications.  I highly recommend Cyndi for her integrity, attention to detail, and her personal care.  She is truly second to none.  She presented our home very well in all media, and sold our home very quickly.  She was very flexible and gave our needs and desires highest priority.  She did a lot of research and found us a new home  in another city in a few short weeks.

Thanks for all you have done for us."
Kurt and Lynn Haugseng

Thank you!

Thank you Cyndi for helping us find our dream house.  We are so happy.
Chelsea, Trevor, Connor & Evelyn W.

Honesty And Integrity

"Cyndi is an honest agent, she will tell you the truth and provide an approach that will give you confidence in an agent. Many agents through my years of buying and selling  experience will provide you with a price and a marketing plan to entice you, only to ask you to reduce and you end up leaving message after message to get a hold of them. Cyndi will tell you the truth, call you back quickly and put in all the time needed to sell or help you buy the right home with no pressure. If honesty and integrity are important work with Cyndi".

Sell With Cyndi! You Won't Regret It!

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.

Don't Hesitate to Use Cyndi for Your Home Sale or Purchase!

Selling your home may be one of the largest assets you ever sell.  When I was considering selling my home, my first thought was which Realtor can I choose to get me the most money and the quickest sale possible.
My first thought was to seek out someone who had years of experience in the market.  After some research, I found that the experienced Realtors also had many other houses listed, and promising me that I was the most important client.  I asked myself how can a Realtor with so many listings possibly give the owner the personalized service that a new Realtor, with only a few listings and a lot more time to concentrate on the sale of your home, could.
In today's market, it made sense to me to choose a Realtor who was new and full of energy and the time to concentrate on the sale of my home.  There are a lot of new Realtors out there, however Cyndi was the only Realtor who many times knocked on my door looking for listings in the community.
Once I met her and spoke with her I found her to be knowledgeable about the market and I was confident that she could not only sell my home quickly, but get me top dollar for my home.  As it turned out, Cyndi closed the deal 9 days after my house was listed and for more than asking price.
I still believe that any Realtor would have trouble matching the personalized service I received from the first day of listing my house to the day the sale completed.
Cyndi also was instrumental in finding me the home that I now live in.  After discussions of what area and style of home I needed, Cyndi took all of the information and started searching.  After a few days, Cyndi had some homes for me to look at.  The personalized service really showed up again.  She had listened to everything I had said and eliminated all the homes that would have been unsuitable and a waste of time to look at.
In my opinion, Cyndi is a very good Realtor, someone you can trust and put your faith in.  If you want personalized service and someone who will work very hard for you, don't hesitate to call Cyndi.

My greatest achievements have been in helping people realize their home-ownership dreams while overcoming obstacles along the way. Not all sales in real estate are "clear sailing". There are many wind storms and even some hurricanes that pop up, and I love using my problem-solving to get through them to the calm. It is very satisfying to help people reach their home-ownership goals.
In 2001 I independently founded a women's soccer team. This put my organizational skills to work, and the result was that 22 more women had a team to play on, instead of not being able to find a team.

I was instrumental in overhauling a major filing system at my last line of work, again putting together organizational skills and problem-solving skills to get the job done.
