Cindy Leonard is an exceptional Raleigh real estate professional. She keeps very current with the market, is super organized, and focuses thoroughly and carefully to negotiate the transaction. As out of town buyers and moving back to Raleigh, we needed Cindy and her business partner, Chuck Hinton, to handle every detail, including all necessary reports, inspections and surveys. They managed each detail timely and without any stress for us!
Cindy and Chuck are the most responsive local realtors we have met in the four real estate transactions we have had in Raleigh over the last twenty years. They made the entire buying process effortless for us.
We highly recommend them!
Cindy was professional, and very knowledgeable and, more importantly, she listened. Satisfying two people is not always easy, but Cindy did a great job.
We recently bought and sold a house using Chuck and Cindy. While it is a given that real estate transactions are stressful, I was surprised by how smoothly the process went under the direction of these two fine agents. They went above and beyond at every step in the process to ensure that we knew what was happening and what our options were. They were especially helpful during the negotiation and inspection steps - going far beyond what I expected. Thank you Chuck & Cindy!
We have used Chuck & Cindy's services both in selling and in buying (and selling and buying and selling!!) our home(s) in Apex and Raleigh--and even Sanford (where, although they were not as familiar with the market, they drove us around and showed us listed homes, using the office of an affiliated agent). We've recommended them to others, including both family and friends, who have, in turn, used them and recommended them to others; they're like a chain letter that actually pays off!!
In all seriousness, they are, without question, the best brokers/Realtors we've ever used--and we used many before we met them, and one since we moved to SC a few years ago. Chuck and Cindy never met a stranger, and never met a buyer or seller for whom they could not find a suitable property. Their clients become their friends, and remain friends for life. Chuck & Cindy make the process of buying and selling (or selling and buying, or either) as painless and easy as it can be, from day 1 through closing; they take care of everything, either personally or through a vast array of service-providers in their network--painters, plumbers, electricians, handymen and so forth, mortgage brokers and lawyers--in fact, anyone you might need during the sale or purchase process.
Chuck & Cindy are the only brokers/Realtors we'd ever use if we were looking to buy or sell property in the Triangle or the surrounding area.
After interviewing a few agents, my husband and I decided to work with Cindy and Chuck. Our first home buying experience was not good, so we we were skeptical and worried about how we would be treated, and concerned no agent would ever look out for us. But Cindy and Chuck were great to work with.
Most of our time was spent with Chuck as he loves to drive you all over Wake county until you find the right house! We sometimes worried we were taking forever to find our home but Cindy and Chuck were patient, not like other agents we have encountered. They understand it takes time and stick with you like you are still a new client throughout the process. Cindy met us several times as well, but her specialty with us was explaining all the legal terminology in the contracts and really taking charge of the business/legal side of things. She also showed us one house and said “this house has problems, let’s go” before we even went upstairs, which was awesome! Both of them were very available.
I worked in real estate for about 14 months in another state and I learned more from Chuck & Cindy than I did from my classes, broker, and my own selling experiences. Chuck and Cindy have also been available to us since, to make recommendations for home contractors. In the end, we found what we think is the perfect house for us, in a town we didn’t think we’d be in – and we love it! We highly recommend them.
