As a lifelong resident of Fairfield, Connecticut and its surrounding towns, Cindy Raney knows this area inside out. With an average of $25 million in sales per year, and as a top producer at The Riverside Realty Group for the past ten years, Cindy has the experience to get her clients the houses they want. Cindy is excited by the whole scope of real estate – from clients searching for their first home to experienced homeowners looking to downsize. Cindy’s Wall Street background, Certified Financial Planner (CFP) designation, and BA in Economics from UCONN ensure she is well poised to execute the business side of real estate. She excels at negotiating and with overall market knowledge. As one of the top 1% of Realtors nationwide, Cindy is honored to be continuously voted a Five Star Realtor through Connecticut magazine.
Though Cindy has a loyal following of repeat-customers, she relishes the opportunity to work with buyers moving from New York City and beyond, and is one of the top realtors for buyers relocating in her network. Having lived in Fairfield, Southport & Westport, as well as done the city-to-suburbs jump herself, Cindy has a natural connection with people looking to make this move. She understands how overwhelming this transition can be, especially when children are part of the equation.
Working with Riverside Realty allows Cindy to put her clients’ needs first: “I really wanted to be with a boutique firm that would allow me to do whatever I needed to do for my clients.” Cindy helps her clients tackle the entire process – from honest advice about neighborhoods to setting up great home inspectors, attorneys, and insurance agents to finalize the process. As a tech-savvy realtor, Cindy also makes the process run as seamlessly as possible. She goes beyond the regular call of duty: she manages the showings, texts her sellers, vets the buyers, and consistently calls agents for feedback to save everyone time. That said, Cindy doesn’t believe in applying pressure; she wants her clients to take as long as they need to find the right home. For her sellers, she sets the right sale price to move the property at a desired pace, always stages, and uses professional photography to put forth the strongest marketing. She is the one to work with if you want to learn more about Fairfield County.
To stay connected to the community she loves, Cindy is involved with many local charities. She was the Chairperson of the Preschool board at Southport Congregational Church, she has twice Co-Chaired “Rooms With a View” – one of the area’s premiere design events, has co-chaired the Christmas Tree Festival’s Children’s event several times, and sits on the PTA board. You’ll probably bump into Cindy at some point in Fairfield – at the store, the soccer field, or the beach – as she runs around town with her three children.
