Daryl and Traci

"We strongly recommend Cindy Birk as a realtor in the Gainesville area.  We interviewed several realtors and were impressed that she took the time to do in-depth market research before she provided a starting selling price for our home. More than anything we did not want a realtor who asked us to come up with a number first.  Cindy took professional photos of our home.  That was very important to us as our home had unique features that needed to be showcased to prospective buyers.  Cindy also had great recommendation for staging our home.  Our home was under contract in 6 days.  Cindy made sure that our needs were always met and that we received the best price possible for our home.  Although we will miss Gainesville, we will leave on a positive note.  Instead of dreading the process of selling our home, it turned out to be easy, quick, and stress free thanks to Cindy.  We have already recommended her to several of our colleagues and friends."

Kim and Donald Horsburgh

"Cindy is amazing. Like anyone buying their first home, Joe and I didn't know what we were doing, which is why we are so grateful. From answering every question (probably more than once) to placing an immediate offer as we finished touring our home, she truly went above and beyond for us. Intelligent, reliable, motivated and everything we could've wanted when making such a huge decision. Thank you, Cindy!"

Jewel Nicole

"Cindy has a wonderful way of going out of her way to be wonderful. Thanks for everything you continue to do for us!"

Lee and Connie Niblock

"I enjoyed working with Cindy on the sale of my home and the purchase of a new home. She went above and beyond. Her organization and knowledge make her a success in her field. I have recommended her to friends and will continue to do so. She was an incredible Realtor and I'm so very thankful I called her."

Laura Matheny

"I have bought and sold many houses over the years, and Cindy is that rarest of agents. I was working in a difficult price range and trying to get a house that was the subject of fierce competition from many buyers. Ultimately, we got the house and there is no doubt that would never have happened without Cindy. From beginning to end, her work was superbly executed. She was savvy and experienced enough to know that the house wouldn't last, and that it was a reasonable value. She devised a smart, clever and successful way to make our purchase contract stand out among the competing offers. She deftly navigated a very tight window for the real estate closing, mustering inspectors and other contractors to get things done on schedule. She even helped to convince the sellers to address a radon issue at their expense.  In my experience, it's rare to find an agent who is both skilled at the art of the deal and focused on all the minutiae of sales contracts. Cindy is one of those people. Above all, it's completely evident that she cares about her clients not just as buyers or sellers, but as people."

Doug & Monica Bennett

"Thanks so much for everything. We really appreciate it, and it was a relief knowing that you were taking care of things when we were so far away. We would definitely recommend you to people we know in the Gainesville area if any of them happen to be moving.  Thanks again, and have a great day!"

She is professional in her communications: always on time, and she returned calls/texts/e-mails rapidly."

"Cindy and Lauretta, Our funds arrived this morning, and we wanted to thank you for helping us with the sale of our home.  Good luck with the rest of the summer and the Gainesville real estate market going forward."

Sue and Paul

"Cindy, I am sure that Lauretta has given you the low-down on the 'exciting' closing session we had on the house today. However, all's well that ends well. I am sincerely appreciative for the work both of you did over selling my house and helping me to buy again in Katelyn Lane. You were unbelievably supportive throughout the whole process. I also very much enjoyed working with two really professional women, thank you! I will most certainly refer future business your way."
