testimonials

The following testimonials are what fuel us on the daily, and what we strive for with every interaction and transaction. We can’t thank our clients enough. Thank you…we’re blushing.

 

Kris Gillespie, Client

“We first met Cindy in the early 90’s.  We were living in a condo on the West side of Downtown Mpls., and decided to look at a new townhouse project being built on the other side of town, on the river. 

Several years later, when we heard she was representing a new condo project further down the river, she was our first call!  Again, the level of service was outstanding, made all the more difficult as we had moved out of the country, and were coordinating the purchase and construction remotely.

The recent sale of our condo was our third transaction with Cindy....and it wasn’t even for sale!  Her ability to match buyer and seller, as well as the level of trust she had established with both, encouraged us to give her Dual Agency.  That requires a delicate balancing act during negotiations, and she handled it impeccably. 

From the beginning, Cindy has been aware of the value of maintaining relationships.  But in order to be truly successful, she has had to consistently exceed clients expectations.  Her ascent in the downtown real estate market is a testimony to those skills!”


 

Karen & Paul, clients

“We have worked with Cindy on a few different properties over the last 20 years both buying and selling. She is always professional, knows the market well, is responsive and has great insights. I have recommended Cindy to my closest friends and am thankful for her partnership over the years. Buying and selling homes can be a stressful process and Cindy makes it as smooth as possible.”


 

Gary and Nanci Smaby, Clients

“What a team! Gary and I appreciate all the work, support, and caring we received from each and every member of the group. They provide incredible service and are so darn much fun to work with! They made this extremely stressful event manageable. Cindy and her team are truly a special group.”


Susan S. Boren, Client

“Cindy is a wonderful agent for many reasons. She values relationships and has built many in the Mill City area. She knows the properties and their values well. She wants her clients to be happy with their choices. She's simply a delight to work with!”  

Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, High Integrity

 

 

Roger Hale, Client

“I have closed a condominium transaction in which Cindy Froid was my Realtor, in this case she represented both the seller and the buyer which is an indication of the confidence clients have in her.  Cindy was extremely competent and professional in every way. I’m happy to recommend her.”


Matt Sharma, Client

“I engaged Cynthia Froid’s team this fall to help manage my unit in the North Star Lofts as a rental. While I thought my case for renting vs. selling was solid (better property value after the stadium, park, etc are finished), Cynthia informed me that most other potential sellers were thinking the exact same thing. The obvious revelation here: there would be quite a bit of price pressure a few years down the road when the market becomes saturated.  

I agreed to list the property for sale. Cynthia suggested some slight updating and lined up a great staging company. Meanwhile, she was actively networking with her prospects that were interested in North Star Lofts, resulting in showings weeks before it hit the market. 

Four days after hitting the MLS, she had generated several offers above the listing price, and it sold way above and beyond the asking price.

It was a great experience working with Cynthia and the team; their coordination made the entire process painless (and fun)!”


 

Warren Kelly & Chelle Stoner, Clients

“Warren and I have known Cindy for almost 20 years. She is positive, hard-working, resourceful, professional and knowledgeable. Cindy was able to sell our South Minneapolis home and helped us purchase our new condo downtown as well. She also helped us identify a talented architect, wonderful designer and fabulous moving specialist. Cindy has a keen understanding of the Minneapolis market and represents her clients and their interests with resolve and focus.”


John Wirth, Client

“Cindy has been a reliable agent who knows her market inside and out, and she’s proven to be a very savvy negotiator. Cindy is also very thoughtful and has been sensitive to our needs as both buyers and sellers.” 


 

Dinyar Mehta, J.D., Client

“When selling a home, being represented and guided by a highly seasoned and market-savvy expert is nothing short of indispensable. 

After much consideration, I chose to work with Cindy and her team because of their exceptional commitment to excellence, personal touch, and service backed by years of proven award-winning experience. From providing sage advice, setting the right price point, making smart adjustments along the way, to collaborating towards an over-asking offer, I simply could not be more pleased with how the sale of my condominium turned out. 

While I’m genuinely grateful for Cindy and her super capable staff, I’m not entirely surprised by the outcome of the journey toward a great sale. Her gracious and impeccable business reputation in the community precedes her along with her strong client-centered commitment. I know I made the right decision and the results prove it.”


Clients from the Mill District

“Cindy knows the Mill District and, more importantly, uses this knowledge effectively by listening to her clients. Cindy represented us in two transactions—once as buyers and once as sellers—both in the Mill District. When we first started looking for a new home, we wanted to do so discretely, and Cindy was highly diligent in respecting our privacy. She paid careful attention to what we said we liked and disliked. She could see possibilities in properties we probably never would have considered on our own. She knows the buildings so well that she can say off the top of her head which owners are likely to move soon and which ones might consider a move if the right offer came in. She found us the perfect fit with a home that wasn’t even listed. Cindy represented the sellers as well, and she handled the dual representation with the utmost professionalism and fairness. 

When it came time to sell our previous home, she was with us every step of the way, providing key insights into timing, staging, and pricing, and creating buzz about our home before it even hit the market. Cindy generated competing offers within 24 hours, and we closed for a $30,000 premium over our asking price."


 

Colin & Lisa Peterson, clients

“Lynn and Cindy have the experience and connections needed to best serve clients in the Downtown market. From our initial meeting through the closing date, the process was smooth and the team was always accessible and professional. Thanks to the efforts of Cynthia Froid Group, the sale of our condo was stress-free and we received a considerable return on our investment. We certainly would not hesitate to work with Lynn and Cindy again.”


Brett and Patricia Mielke, clients

“Lynn did a wonderful job handling the sale of our home in Grant Park. We especially appreciate that she went the extra mile for our family in assuring that all issues were resolved. Such examples included, aiding me in finding contractors to fix my house or checking with the Title agencies many times a day. Lynn did whatever it took to get our closing done smoothly. Her positive attitude and market level setting really helped manage expectations.

I would gladly recommend Lynn’s services to anyone seeking an excellent real estate agent who in tenacious and excellent with communication. Her high energy and excellent follow through made the experience positive for all of us.”


 

Tara and Nabil, clients

“Lynn started working with us well before we put our house on the market.  She listened to our goals for pricing and timing, and kept close tabs on the market so that she could advise us on the best time to list.  

After that, I felt like she was working on ways to market our townhouse every day! Without our prompting, she sent out postcards to a relevant list of potential buyers that highlighted our place beautifully. Our web presence was perfect, and we had an extremely productive open house the first weekend. As a result, we sold our place to some great buyers at the right price within 2 weeks!

In addition to a successful sale, Lynn was great at communicating with us on trends, potential buyers, and input from others the entire time. She was upbeat and honest, and I felt like she always had our best interests at heart. She really cares about her clients! 

Other examples of her dedication included helping me stage the house for pictures and coming over to help me clean up for a last minute showing. Her staging created such a great sense of style and space, I wish she had helped us decorate long before we moved away!”


Patty and Jason Studsrud, clients

"We are so thankful we partnered with Lynn to sell our condo at Skyscape. We selected Lynn as our realtor because we wanted to partner with someone who shared the same motivation to sell our condo, and we wanted to work with someone that we could trust. From the minute we made the decision to list the condo, she moved the entire process along efficiently and guided us every step of the way. In two weeks we had the condo staged, on the market, and sold! From the time our condo sold until the time we closed, Lynn was always there providing guidance to ensure a smooth closing. This experience with Lynn and the Cynthia Froid Group/Keller Williams truly exceeded our expectations, when we sell our next home, we will be calling Lynn."


 

doug Mueller, client

“I am so appreciative for Lynn’s help on getting my home sold. She helped stage our home and provided a greatly improved flow in my home’s spaces. The photography she arranged was well done and very impactful in showing off my condo in the best possible light. When a favorable offer came through, we were dismayed when the potential buyers had some unforeseen financing issues surface. Lynn helped the buyers find a new lender so the closing date could stay on track. I’m not sure what I would have done if their financing had not gone through. I value all of Lynn’s hard work and attention to detail. I would definitely recommend her to others selling their homes.”


Anthony Nanne, client

As a first time home buyer, Lynn was a tremendous asset throughout the process of finding and closing on my new home, including: 1) helping me better define the type of property I was looking for; 2) vetting the inventory of Minneapolis condo options; 3) scheduling and conducting walk-throughs; 4) providing seasoned insights into unique property features and/or risks, and 5) successfully guiding me through close. 

Lynn’s timely communications were essential to my ability to stay apprised of developments across multiple, often time-sensitive, listings. Her willingness to accommodate my unpredictable schedule when coordinating showings also exceeded expectations. I would recommend Lynn to anyone looking for an experienced, highly-professional agent - especially if you are considering exploring options in Downtown Minneapolis.


 

KATHLEEN FLYNN PETERSON, client

“Our client experience with Cynthia was simply excellent. Cynthia and her team understood that the consumer real estate process can be stressful and emotional for the client. They were always responsive to our needs, listening and supporting us through each step of the process.

Cynthia achieved excellent results for us in both selling a high end property in a challenging market and locating and negotiating a purchase of a perfect next home. She creatively and strategically employs her expertise, enthusiasm and energy to every phase of the process. We found her advice and counsel to be thoughtful as well as wise.”
