Sold a home in 2011.
We worked with Cindy on the Short-Sale of our previous home.

My wife and I were very worried about our situation and decided to short sale the home. Our situation was different (at least from our stand point) and a few of the Realtors panicked and backed out. My wife looked Cindy up on Zillow and I'm so happy she did, Cindy gladly took up the work and dealt with some really difficult banks to get us out of this mess in 2.5 months’ time. Right from the beginning Cindy was cool and walked us through the entire process, gave us confidence and hope on what she can deliver. She was confident at the same time humble.

We are new to this and did not understand the information requested in the forms; She helped put everything together for us, explained everything in detail, gave us a list of items they would need at every stage, walked us through the process before starting on the work. She was also available to answer questions anytime over email/phone and responded to emails even in the middle of the night. She kept us informed on the progress of the sale Every Week.

She has a wonderful team who is well informed on the work and followed up on all documents that required signatures and responded to the Bank's Request for Info promptly the very Next Day without wasting any time in between. This is why something that should have taken 5-8 months to complete, took only 2.5 months (end to end).

She is very tough on Negotiating, she is Knowledgeable, she is Honest and Dependable, and Will get the work done at all costs. I will give her more stars if possible, but settling with 5 on all categories for now :-)

HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER and Will Definitely Work with her in the Future.

Sold a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $250K in Fairgrounds, San Jose, CA.
I was referred to Cindy by a friend who was doing a short sale of her home. I also was in need of assistance with the short sale of my home. I found Cindy to be knowledgable, responsive, and very professional. She told me what to expect when we started the process, and was available to answer any questions that came up. The process went as smoothly as possible, and I attribute much of that to her hard work and attentiveness to detail. I would highly recommend Cindy to anyone in need of a real estate professional.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $350K in Elk Grove, CA.
Cindy is the "Go To" person for your Real Estate needs. We "Short Sold" our house and Cindy made the process effortless--we were able to close in 59 days. We will be using her Real Estate expertise again in the future.

Sold a Multi Family home in 2011 for approximately $450K in Downtown, San Jose, CA.
Hi I found Cindy on Yelp and I am so glad I did. She was recommended as a short sale expert and she guided me through the process. I had multiple offers within the first week of listing the property. The close with the bank was smooth as well and we closed 30 days after the offer. I had spoken to other Real Estate agents before hiring Cindy and most did not know the short sale process and quoted me inaccurate information. Having to move to a short sale is a painful process however the actual sale of the property was done with ease and because of Cindy eliminated what could have been a huge stress for me. I would recommend her for any real estate transaction.

Bought a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $1.1M in Evergreen, San Jose, CA.
Cindy was a fantastic agent for us. Her knowledge of the Evergreen area and the processes gave us a lot of valuable information. She also understood our needs and took us to the right kind of homes. That makes house-buying a very positive experience. Otherwise you just agents (some of our prior experience) who truly do not take the time to understand what the customers requirements are leading to a lot of depressing home visits.

Investing in a house especially in CA is a big decision and we were glad to get Cindy's help!

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $1.125M in Los Altos, CA.
April 2010 Cindy Hipwell marketed and sold our home in Los Altos, CA (SF Peninsula) and helped us find a new home in Fair Oaks, CA. Her excellent knowledge of both markets (SF Peninsula and Sacramento area) resulted in getting a top sales price in Los Altos and a very good purchase price in Fair Oaks. Our move was accomplished within 5 weeks! In February 2011 we purchased a rental in Fair Oaks. Inspite of multiple bids, Cindy was able to negotiate for us this purchase at a very favorable price. During those three transactions, Cindy's coordination skills and her responsiveness were admirable. Her professionalism is impecable.

Sold a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $625K in Evergreen, San Jose, CA.
Cindy has helped me twice now to sell property - first a home, second a condo. She has good instincts about what is needed to sell so to maximize your value, and also has all the right contacts to get things done when needed (not to mention manages that process!) which was a huge benefit to me.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $500K in North Valley, San Jose, CA.
I don't give out recommendations easily, I'm pretty picky and skeptical when it comes to relators. Buying and selling a home is very stressful and finding someone you can trust with your home is hard to come by. A good friend of mine referred me to Cindy Hipwell. Cindy personally came to our home to talk about what we needed from her, she educated us about the market, what to expect and what her plan of action was. She answered all of our questions. We knew it was a hard economy since several other homes in our neighborhood couldn't sell so they would come on the market and get taken off the market over and over again. Cindy was professional, caring and realistic. We put our trust in Cindy and followed her recommendations. About 1 week after we put our home on the market we got an offer!!! Because we moved out of town, it was hard for us to go back and forth to San Jose to "take care of business" with the home we were selling. Cindy took care of everything, she arranged for everything necessary to sell the home, from inspections to contractors to dry cleaning our drapes and wiping down windows. She went WAY above and beyond our expectations. We LOVE her!!! And will continue to go to her for all our selling and buying needs :)

Sold a Condo home in 2010 in Sacramento, CA.
Cindy has been my realtor on both ends of the spectrum, both selling and now buying. I was impressed from the beginning as she spent the time to educate me on things needed to make a good decision. She spent extra time educating the buyer at the time as well, which was over and above the call of duty. Now being on the buying end, Cindy has never rushed me into buying anything and continues to want me to make the best decision for me and not get into anything that may cause me to question my decision later on. She has always been professional and personable with us as well as to the person on the other end. I have recommended Cindy to my friends as I can't imagine a better realtor !

Sold a Single Family home in 2005 for approximately $600K in Downtown, San Jose, CA.
Cindy Hipwell was referred by a friend who was pleased with her services selling a house in a neighboring city. We interviewed three agents (including one who lived in our very own neighborhood) and were impressed at the meeting with Cindy because she was obviously the one who was completely prepared and not afraid to give us straight answers. Other agents seemed like they just want to tell sellers what they most want to hear regarding time it may take to sell, the need for staging and repairs -- overselling and under-delivering. We were glad we had her help in selling our house (we got 5 offers, countered 3x before getting almost $40k over asking price) as well as Cindy's assistance in buying the home we are currently own. Cindy wasn't just a realtor but also a great resource for advice and wisdom on neighborhoods, homes and schools. She's also always been great at followup in the years since then, responsive and friendly, willing to go the extra mile when we've needed answers or help. For instance, one time our home warranty wasn't coming through on promised repairs to our refrigerator, she called them herself and leaned on them and they were much more willing to pay and get the work done after that. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Cindy to anyone buying or selling a home and we'll work with her again in the future.
