I definitely want my buyers to be happy with their purchase five or ten years from now. My job is to educate you on the area and the market and to listen to what you want. I honestly can't encourage my clients to buy a home that I wouldn't purchase myself. At the same time, a good Realtor® has to be a really good listener. I'm able to pick out strong property matches based on extensive discussions with my clients.

As a real estate agent, I love guiding my clients through an important, exciting time in their lives. I thrive on a challenge, and I make your success my goal in every transaction. I value hard work and Realtor® education, ensuring my clients' best interests every step of the way. I work with buyers and sellers in Mclean, Vienna, Great Falls, Oakton, Reston, North Arlington, and Leesburg to Middleburg.

I came to real estate from the airline industry, where clear communication, understanding, and a detail­oriented mindset are essential. I believe in going the extra mile to find the answer to any question, and I know the right places to look. Growing up in Vienna and Oakton, I watched Northern Virginia develop into the hub it is today. My mother was also a long-time real estate agent who inspired me to be the best that one could be at any endeavor pursued in life. Honesty, integrity and customer satisfaction have always been of utmost importance to us. 

When it comes to marketing, I'm a perfectionist. I make sure your house is in tip-top shape. I will spend hours helping clients stage their home, room by room. I don't just tell sellers what to do - I show them what to put away and what to leave out. Clients have appreciated that I take the time to walk them through these steps.

Excellent photography of your home is critical because that's what the world sees online. I want the photos to be stellar, and I help my clients take advantage of our technology. I upload the maximum possible number of photos to our listings system, and I have the photographs made into a virtual tour. Your house will look its best, and it will draw attention from all over the world.
Negotiating is my strong suit. A Realtor® needs to know when a house is priced right, and when it's not. I analyze the sales comparables and the present supply and demand in the market. Then I make your case. It comes down to knowing this business well, and being able to recognize true property value.

One of the reasons I appreciate McEnearney Associates is that the company stays ahead of the game on new laws, new procedures, and new technologies. I excel at keeping contracts in order and maintaining every addendum in its proper place. I pride myself on relating key information to clients, so that you're always ahead, too. Ultimately, I'm passionate about the work that I do, and I feel fortunate to have a job that I love.

" We interviewed 4 different teams from 4 real estate companies. Cindy was our top pick. Exceptional­went above and beyond great service, more than one would ever expect, extremely professional. Apparent that she treats her work as a life profession and not just a job. Could not have asked for a better experience. Cindy is to thank for that. Cindy "staged" our home as well as- if not better than a professional "stager" would have done."

– Nick and Loni J. of Leesburg, VA

" Cindy was outstanding in every way. She was so patient and so professional. I have no hesitation in referring her or recommending her to anyone wishing to sell their property. Stands apart from the other large competition. We were called right away by the referral coordinator giving us Cindy's name and letting us know when we would be contacted and it happened just the way as stated. Actually, for a move/purchase 3,000 miles away and Cindy was there every step of the way to ensure everything met the deadlines."

– Simone and Bob Wooley- San Ramon, CA.

" She is very professional in her demeanor and is a pleasure to work with. All positive- good reputation in the community. As I didn't get the first contract on the house, Cindy followed up with the listing agent in case it didn't go through. This personal contact, I believe, got me the opportunity to ultimately purchase this home."

– Kathy V. of McLean, VA

She went the extra mile and we really appreciate her extra effort!"

– Mr. and Mrs. John James, Vienna, VA

We had a relatively quick sale, for a relatively good price, in a rather tough and highly competitive market."
