Get to know Cyndi Kane
Encouraged to enter the business by my Husband's Aunt Margie, a former REALTOR. After several attempts to convince me, she finally sent me a check for $1000 and and said "Do it! I don't care if you ever sell a house, just become a REALTOR!" Within, 3 months of receiving that check, I was a full-time REALTOR and I have loved it ever since. That was in 2002, since then, business has grown and I have grown. I am blessed to serve wonderful people who appreciate what I do for them.

I work with many First Time Home Buyers and many Nepali and Butanese refugees. I work to help them understand the process and educate them so that they can make good buying decisions. This happened by virtue of my previous clients referring business my way. This has become a niche for me. I certainly feel I make a difference for these buyers.
Testimonials for Cyndi Kane

Earlier in the year, my husband and I worked with another realtor from another company and had a horrendous experience and had a lot of trepidation about beginning the home-buying process again in the fall during our busy seasons at work. Everything changed when we began working with Cyndi; Cyndi came highly recommended from a realtor that my family has worked with in the past in a different city. Cyndi met with us and explained the home-buying process in-depth and shared knowledge about the many factors that should be considered when purchasing a home. Cyndi let us go at our own pace and was always there as support (and be the voice of reason). We used the internet portal to sort through houses at our leisure and called to schedule a Saturday morning showing tour through a few towns. My husband and I found a home that we loved during this tour and the home-buying and educating process continued as Cyndi allowed us to think about our next steps for a few days and always answered our calls to help explain the consequences of an offer, negotiating points, timing and financing. Cyndi successfully negotiated us through a multplei-offer situation and here were are sitting in our dream home. In addition to Cyndi's excellent services, she also provided recommendations for other outstanding team members that all helped to make the process of buying our first home in an unfamiliar area as seamless as possible. On closing day, Cyndi was there to help us as necessary, including calling our HOA and local city hall to make sure an aspect of our home was compliant. On move-in day, my husband and I noticed that one of the contract contingencies had not been fulfilled and immediately called Cyndi and the problem was swiftly fixed in conjunction with the listing agent and sellers.
We have never once had to wait on Cyndi -- she has done everything possible to ensure that we had access to her when we needed her, whether it was 9PM in the evening on a weekday or 8AM in the morning on a holiday. My husband and I are both so happy that we had the luxury of working with Cyndi and will be sure to continue working with her as long as we are in the area.

Cyndi made the process as easy as possible. Her suggestions to improve the property were practical to us and relevant to buyers. Always in contact, she sold it quickly with excellent advice. We recommend her without qualification.
Cyndi helped me buy my first home - a short sale property. She had to take me through dozens of properties before I found one that seemed like home. And we also worked through a six month short sale process together. Cyndi was very knowledgable about the Cuyahoga Falls area, knew about new houses coming onto the market, and was acquainted with many of the sellers' agents. She was also great about pointing out potential problems with the houses I saw, so I knew what I was getting myself into before I bought.

Cyndi sold us our first home 5 years ago. When it was time to move again we called Cyndi. She helped us find the right price for our listing and was very purposeful in making sure the listing photos were perfect. Our home sold in 16 days. She then helped us find a number of suitable houses until we found the *right* home for us. She helped us navigate through some sticky situations during the closing process as best she could. She is always pleasant, cheerful, and professional. She even went above and beyond by sometimes entertaining our little one so we could get a closer look at a property.

Cyndi has helped my wife and I sell or buy 5 houses through the years. She is always upbeat and pays close attention to details. Another thing we appreciated was that she checked in frequently to let us know the status of our listing. Cyndi will be first on our list when we need a realtor again.
I had a particularly difficult situation to deal with. She had to deal with an attorney and difficult family members. She did a splendid job managing everything. I couldn't have been more fortunate to have had her handling things. She only asked for necessary information, and she always utilized the information to the fullest. She never needed to be given paperwork more than once. She was very respectful of the property (not leaving lights on, doors open/unlocked, etc), and she was very accurate with what she required of me, such as # copies of this or that needed, she always provided any fax numbers (I never had to look them up myself), account numbers....all of t. It was a monumental task, but all things considered she made it all run smoothly and made it look easy, even though it was anything but easy. She was always available if I needed information, but she was very good about updates. She didn't give them too often, not too infrequent, and what was given was always worth while. I have worked with several agent in my life and they are all about at the same level, and I have little to remark about any of them that could be regarded as flattering, but Cyndi is far and above the status quo. She is professional, courteous, respectful and friendly, and she truly loves what she does, and it shows in the way she does every aspect of a transaction. She is always prepared, never late for any appointments, and asks for only that which she needs. As long as you provide what she asks for, and the information to her is accurate and valid, she will turn it into gold. I think honest, talented people should be rewarded and praised, and she deserves that, because she earns it.
Cyndi was awesome! She stuck by me on a short sale process that lasted forever. I really appreciated her being understanding of my situation. She was helpful in every stage of the process and answered any questions that I had.
