Mill District/Riverfront Real Estate
Cynthia’s real estate career began in 1996 while working with the late Sheldon Hoffman (S.R. Hoffman & Associates) handling the sales and marketing of the North Star Lofts. This was a pioneering, collaborative effort between Brighton Development, Paul Madson and Associates, and Kraus-Anderson Construction to renovate the landmark North Star Blanket Factory. Over the next nine years, they went on to sell out four additional award winning loft buildings by Brighton Development; Stone Arch Lofts, Washburn Lofts, Humboldt Lofts and Park Avenue Lofts.
In 2006, sensing a change coming to the downtown condo market, Cynthia spread her wings and left S.R. Hoffman to join Keller Williams Realty. She sharpened her skills, and continued to study her craft, focusing on re-sale transactions in the Mill District and expanding her knowledge to include other highly desirable neighborhoods in and near downtown. She quickly became the go-to girl for all things Mill District.
With her business gaining momentum, she formed the Cynthia Froid Group in 2009, this time opening her very own shop smack in the heart of the Mill District, where it all began. Cynthia's focus on downtown real estate has remained constant throughout her entire career, and her fierce commitment to servicing her clients continues, as 90% of her business consists of repeat clients or referrals.
Cynthia attended the University of Minnesota and graduated from St. Catherine University with degrees in Elementary Education and French. She lives in Minneapolis with her husband and three sons. When she is not selling real estate she enjoys traveling, scuba diving, kayaking, white water rafting and hot yoga.
Investing in the neighborhood that has given her such great opportunity has been a priority for Cynthia. She proudly supports the following cultural anchors in the city:
Mill City Farmers Market & Night Market at The Commons, MacPhail Center for the Arts, MSP International Film Festival, Mill City Summer Opera, Minneapolis Parks Foundation + Riverfront Initiative/Water Works Project, Gold Medal Park Conservancy, Mill City Commons, Friends of the Mississippi River, Minneapolis Riverfront Partnership, Green Stick Army, Friends of the Mill District, Green Minneapolis, People Serving People, Project SUCCESS, Preservation Alliance of Minnesota, & East Town Business Partnership.
