Cindi Sodolski has earned several awards for her excellence in representing both buyers and sellers, but she believes the highest honor is the fact that about 98 percent of her business comes from referrals. Cindi is a longtime resident of Chicago and lived in neighborhoods such as Lincoln Park and North Center, as well as in the Loop. Cindi and Steve have been married for over thirty years. They have four children, including triplets, and raised them in the city. The Sodolski Family is also a big proponent of Chicago Public Schools, where the children have attended Bell Elementary School and Selective Enrollment High Schools, Whitney Young and Lane Tech. In her spare time, Cindi stays in shape by practicing yoga; explores parks with her new puppy Archie; and enjoys spending time with her family.
Clients who have worked with her say they refer to colleagues, friends, and family for several reasons.
Personal Attention – Whether she is listing a home or helping clients find a property to buy, clients work directly with Cindi.
Availability – People who work with Cindi know they can reach her around the clock; she’s available when they’re available.
Trustworthiness – Clients rely on Cindi to bring a high degree of integrity to their relationship. In a field where confidentiality and ethics are paramount, Cindi is a standout.
Negotiation Skills – Cindi’s designation as a certified negotiation expert (CNE) means she negotiates the best possible outcome on behalf of her clients. This is especially advantageous for sellers, who constitute a large part of Cindi’s business.
Attention to Detail – Her detail-oriented approach means that Cindi stays on top of every aspect of a sale, from the initial meeting through showings, home inspections, negotiations — all the way until closing (although her relationships with clients continue well after the ink is dry on a contract).
