"Cynthia was tireless in her pursuit of our perfect home. In a desperate, crazy market, she helped us find our home by being honest, insightful and shrewd. When she found our house, we were abroad, but we trusted her to such an extent that we bought it without having seen it. She then dealt with the negotiation and closure with aplomb. She made the entire process far easier than it could have been, and always displayed humor, grace and understanding. She is one of a kind." - BEN & GEMMA
"Cynthia is fantastic. She knows the local geography on a block by block basis and is a great strategist. She knows the history of the neighborhoods and knows where to look off the beaten path. She is very responsive and was very patient with all of our questions. In the end, she got us a house that appraised for more than what we paid. We got everything we wanted and for way less than what we planned to spend. She is exactly who you need in a competitive market." - YULIYA & WILL
"We have worked with several agents and Cynthia is simply the best. We would have paid much more for our home without her skills to persuade people left and right, and her incredible ability to read between the lines. In fact, we might not even have gotten the house if she didn’t know what people were actually thinking when they weren’t saying it! She knew the local market so well that she could tell us which price point we needed to be up for and when it was too much. The scary part was she was right - as if she could see things! The most important thing in Cynthia is that we felt that she watched our back and protected our interest. This is RARE!" - ED & NAM
"What can I say about Cynthia that hasn't already been tied to her reputation. She is beyond incredible. From her awareness of the market to understanding our needs in a home. We recently re-located from Colorado and sold our 3-bedroom 2-bath ranch style house and moved into a 1-bedroom apartment in Berkeley. After meeting Cynthia in the months that followed (she and her husband Michael were our incredible neighbors) we leaned on her and her expertise of the bay area. I can't recall how many houses we visited and the countless open houses we attended but every home that matched our needs Cynthia had the house information down pat. She would tell us if we needed to do a sewer lateral, what was renovated, what needed to be worked on, quality of the school system in the neighborhood, costs and if it would exceed our budget, and she always kept it honest. If we didn't love it we would move on. What stuck out the most is how gracious she was with our son. As two-year-olds can be he is quite energetic and wanted to see everything, touch everything, and run around. This never bothered her. This put us at ease because part of why we chose Cynthia to be our Realtor® was because her love of family and establishing meaningful relationships. There came a point where we didn't think we would even find a home in the bay area and we thought it may be best to wait another year and re-new our lease. Something told us to expand our reach outside of Pinole, El Sobrante, Richmond, Berkeley, Oakland (after many offers rejected) and look more inland. To make a long story short Cynthia helped us put in an offer for a town house in Concord. Given her solid five-star reputation in the real-estate community we made an impression from our personalized letter to having all our information in order, and the same day we put in our offer it was accepted! We found a beautiful town house that feels like us and feels like home because all of the tireless hours and energy provided by Cynthia. If you are looking to buy a home in the bay area look no further. Cynthia Speers is beyond professional. She is the only choice and hands down a rock-star human. Grateful to not only be in her network but to be able to call her and her family our bay area family."
"We had the pleasure of working with Cynthia to buy a house in the East Bay. She is a very knowledgable person that makes it easy especially if you are new to the area. She is well-versed with the ins and outs of houses in the area; she does highlight things from built materials to structure and possible challenges of each house you see. She is very observant and hence you can trust that she picks up things around the house that you may not. Most agents know her in the area and that is very important when she advocates for you when it comes to getting a house in a multiple offer situation. She is indefatigable and works so hard for her clients from making herself available to show many houses on a given day. And above all, she is really fun to work with. I highly recommend working with Cynthia."
