an exceptional experience
We recognize that selling a home can be nuanced. Sometimes it’s to downsize. Sometimes it’s about a move away from the area. Other times it’s about a growing family. Regardless, it’s always emotional. At Cindy Raney & Team, our job is to guide you throughout the entire process of selling your home. We take great pride in having a team so heavily invested in the client experience. It’s why we work so hard to provide you with an exceptional one.
We begin caring for you and your home from the moment we meet. We are hands on with every aspect of the selling process from start to finish. We know that your home is one of your most important investments and we do everything we can to maximize your return, while minimizing your stress.

Cindy's commitment and dedication were truly first rate. We felt a great connection and confidence in her from the start. She exceeded our expectations in finding the right house, getting our existing home sold and guiding us through the process.— Ben & Heather F.
Sold our house in a week! Amazingly helpful! Couldn't be more pleased! Cindy helped stage house, took professional photographs, had impressive marketing materials and website to advertise house. Networked aggressively with other Realtors® to get the house shown as much as possible. Cindy made the house selling process enjoyable.— Stephanie R.
Cindy has been nothing but outstanding. She truly understands our requirements in terms of house, price, neighborhood and has patiently devoted a lot of time to the search. Upon first meeting Cindy we were pleasantly taken aback by her understanding of the market, dedication to our needs, honesty, utmost professionalism and integrity.— Daniel & Yelena M.
Cindy and her team are consummate professionals! They provide the highest level of personalized support serving as Realtors®, counselors, friends, and even spirit guides, during what can be a pretty emotional journey. We are so thrilled to have found our new home and could not have done it without Cindy and her superheroes. Thank you, thank you.— Luke S.
Moving across the country lends to much stress, let alone during a pandemic. We can't recommend Cindy and her team enough. With a small window of time to look for homes and limited inventory, Cindy did a phenomenal job of getting us into our desired neighborhood. She is extremely knowledgeable of the market and was a great advocate in making the deal happen.— Natasha C.
We decided to move during a pandemic. Right at the moment that everyone else was also planning to leave the city. So the timing came with a ton of pressure. Luckily, Cindy was in our corner. Calm, insightful and extremely knowledgeable about the area. We simply couldn't have made it happen without her and her team. If you are considering the area, then call Cindy.— Daniel B.
After speaking to a number of real estate professionals, my wife and I decided to work with Cindy and her team because they had the best market insights and most credible marketing plan. They took the time to understand our objectives and really got to know the home leading to a flawless process and a better than expected outcome. We would certainly work with them again.— Michael A.
From start to finish Cindy was wonderful! Full of knowledge of the community where we purchased the home, the details of the house and regulations, the level of expertise is unsurpassed. She communicated any updates and to-do’s of the transaction very quickly and professionally. Cindy delivered our dream home. We would highly recommend Cindy to anyone who wants to get their right home.— RB.
Cindy was a breeze to work with from start to finish. She was honest, straightforward, and got us exactly what we wanted. She was a calm point in the craziness of the market. Especially since we were also under stress from selling a house in a different state, as well as buying in an area we knew very little about! I recommend her (and team) to anyone and everyone I know looking in Fairfield County.— Heather C.
My husband and I were determined to relocate to Weston from the West Coast to be near our family. After viewing numerous homes online and getting familiar with the area through our kids presale work with Cindy last summer, we were able to find the right home the first day out and close escrow within 2 weeks. Cindy and Kate are very familiar with the area and on top of market conditions. They provided introductions to the service providers we needed to handle the transaction and get our house ready for move in. And we love it here.— Beverly P.
In the midst of what felt to me like a very crowded seller's market, with many similarly-priced, high-quality properties for sale in the community, Cindy delivered. Maybe more-importantly, she removed virtually all of the anxiety from the process, allowing me to stay focused on my life. Her command of the market, coupled with her unwavering focus on each step of the process, big or small, made me feel as though I was her only client. I strongly-recommend Cindy to anybody looking for the expertise of a large commercial enterprise with the bespoke feel of local boutique.— Adam G.
Five stars just aren't enough! Cindy is the best; it is that simple. Cindy made me feel like I was her only client. She works tirelessly with integrity and passion. We were looking for a very specific home in Fairfield. Cindy was very patient and didn't give up until she found us the perfect home. We have worked with Cindy on both the buy and sell side. I would never work with anyone else. Besides being knowledgeable, and a complete expert in her field who goes above and beyond, Cindy is a complete pleasure to be with. I highly, highly recommend Cindy to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home.— Ruth M.
Cindy helped us buy our first home in 2019. From our initial communication, I knew that Cindy would be a great advocate for us during what was a completely new, sometimes stressful process. She was great at explaining everything and answering all of our questions. Cindy offered great advice while we negotiated and was always extremely responsive to our calls, emails, and texts. She also provided great vendor recommendations and we've been very impressed with everyone she referred us to. Most importantly, she was super friendly and lovely to work with during the process. We would highly recommend Cindy Raney to anyone looking to buy a new home!— NV.
Cindy is an outstanding Realtor®! My husband and I were first time home buyers, who were very nervous about the process. The moment we meet Cindy she was attune to what we wanted and she never tried to "sell us" on why xyz was better. She noted our preferences, and helped us find what was right for us. Also, Cindy was very low pressure, we always felt that she was looking out for our best interests. Cindy was patient with us (my husband is very picky), answered all of our questions and helped us find our dream home. We could always count of Cindy to be there for us and made the purchase of our first home easy and enjoyable. I would absolutely recomm...— Julie G.
The decision to sell our first house after years of renting it was not an easy one. The decision to go with Cindy was. From day 1 to closing she was consistently proactive, responsive, supportive, and reliable. In a market that was anything but consistent and having buyers that were not the easiest to deal with, having someone with these qualities representing us was incredibly important to keeping our sanity during the process. Having used other agents in the past, I honestly can say Cindy was the most diligent, realistic, honest, and hardworking. Thank you, Cindy! And while I hope I don’t require real estate services in the future, if I did Cindy ...— Katie K.
Working with Cindy was always our calm ballast even when twists and turns confronted us which essentially became the norm during the pandemic. Cindy constantly assessed the market and correctly told us when to take our house off the market and then again when to put it on the market safely and sure enough we came away with a wonderful offer we were very happy with. At every turn, I could count on Cindy being a total professional and having our best interests always in mind. When we need to make minor repairs to be ahead of any issues, she always had the proper referrals that would solve the problem quickly. My wife and I have proudly referred her to...— Jim H.
Cindy helped my wife and I both purchase and sell a home in Southport, Connecticut. We had originally met Cindy when viewing a home she had for sale and quickly realized that her local knowledge of the town, market, and real estate process would be a great asset. We worked with her over many months to find exactly the right home, her advice was critical in the search process over many months. When we ultimately found the right home Cindy helped us navigate the process and negotiate effectively. Upon purchasing of our new house she also helped sell our previous home which was listed and sold in less than a week based upon her staging and improvement ...— Evan K.
We enlisted the help of Cindy and her team for the purchase of our first home during the craziness of the pandemic housing market (and while 6 months pregnant!). We knew we wanted to make the move from NY to CT but knew very little about the towns and market. Cindy was extremely knowledgeable and was able to give us a download on all the pros and cons of towns based on our needs. Once we landed on the towns for consideration, her team sent us great options that fit the criteria we had set. We had to move quickly and Cindy was able to do just that so we could tour the houses we were interested in. Knowing we were new to the process of home buying, Ci...— Talia R.
We highly recommend Cindy Raney and team!! Cindy listed our house in Greenfield Hill. We can’t say enough about how AMAZING our experience was with Cindy and her team. Before we listed our house, she gave us great feedback on what she liked and what changes we could make to maximize our outcome. Simple changes yet made a big difference at the end. She brought in a stager that transformed the look of the house with great ideas and furniture. She was very professional throughout the entire process - with strong communication, constantly updating us with any new information. She was very responsive and reachable no matter time of day. She is very knowl...— Hirut H.
Cindy and her team are exceptional at what they do and this review is long overdue. We moved back to CT from CA a little over 1 year ago and were in search of a house in Westport (first virtually then in person). We were in the process of starting a family and were hoping for a “forever home” in an extremely competitive market… a tall order, but Cindy and her team were organized, knowledgeable and guided us to a wonderful house. We have now been in our home for almost 1 year and are so happy with every aspect of the property. If you are looking for an agent to assist you either in person or virtually, I highly recommend Cindy!— The Flasters
Cindy, Margaret and the rest of the Cindy Raney team are absolutely exceptional. They sold our Fairfield house in the beach area this year and were complete pros start to finish: meticulous research to ensure the right pricing; always fast to react and respond to our thoughts and questions; created an attractive, creative marketing campaign; provided thoughtful advice throughout the sale process; and, handled negotiations professionally and with transparency to close the deal. I enthusiastically recommend Cindy & Team!— Paul & Jen
I had an amazing experience with the Cindy Raney team! I worked with the fabulous Margaret to both purchase our new home and sell our previous home. I felt guided, supported and rooted for from start to finish. Highly recommend!— Liz & JD
Cindy Raney & Team have been incredible partners in our journey to find a house in Fairfield County. They have deep knowledge of the area, and a firm understanding of both the sell side and the buy side. We would not have found our current home without them (thank you, Margaret!) and would work with them again anytime!— Anastasia & Adam
Cindy & her team are phenomenal. They're extremely organized and have an exceptional sense of the real estate market and its direction. When looking for a home, along with a complete change of lifestyle, the three most important things needed from a broker (in our opinion, at least) are: knowledge, availability, and most of all patience. Cindy OVER QUALIFIES in all the above requirements. She is very realistic, extremely organized and, most importantly, very understanding- always taking in her clients' needs, wants and abilities in purchasing a home. It took almost 2 years to find the right home to relocate a family of 5 from a NYC apartment to a ...— Estee
If your home is show ready we can have it on the market within 48 hours. If staging or improvements are needed, it can take on average 3 weeks.
If you want to sell your home quickly and for the most money possible we strongly recommend staging your home for sale. Our staged homes historically outperform the market.
Our concierge style process takes care of all of the details. We will arrange consultation appointments with our top staging recommendations in the area. From there we will review proposals together and determine the best fit based on cost and availability.
We understand how valuable your time is and that the thought of getting your home ready for the market can be extremely stressful. Our concierge team will be there every step of the way. We will start by creating a list of recommended improvements and provide our network of trusted local professionals. We are available to coordinate and meet with these providers to help get estimates and facilitate the process. These can include items such as painting, decluttering, staging, estate sales, cleaning, landscaping, carpenters, window washers - you name it!
Typically closings occur in 30 to 60 days. This timing can be shortened or extended depending on the details of the transaction.
Rent: We can put your house on the market and find a short term rental in the area
Sale subject to seller finding suitable housing: This means you are not under any obligation to accept an offer or sell your home until you have found your new place.
Lease back: The buyer will close on your home and you can lease back for up to a predetermined amount of time at market rate allowing you to look for a new house with the comfort of knowing your home is sold.
