Very helpful in buying our new home.

As first time home buyers, finding and purchasing a home can be a daunting task.

We wanted someone that would be both knowledgable and and honest to help us through this process. Beth on the Welu Home Team not only met those expectations, but greatly exceeded them. She was professional throughout the entire process and very personable in giving us her honest opinion on homes that we were considering.

The market was extremely tough at the time and I couldn’t have done it without her.

She helped me sell my place for over the asking price as well as find the right home to buy. She was extremely easy to contact and very on top of things, making the process as simple as possible for me. Highly recommend!

She is very dedicated to helping you find the home you want, and not driven by the market or other factors. We can't say enough good things about her!!!!

Sarah G

Awesome from start to finish.

I knew almost nothing about house buying and she held my hand through the process answering every question I had . She knew exactly what I wanted and didn’t take me to houses just trying to get a sale. She treated me like I was looking for a million dollar house, honest and truthful. I could go on and on about how great she was for me, bottom line is if I have someone looking for a home I would highly highly recomend her

Brooke

We could not have been more thrilled -fantastic realtor whose knowledge & expertise made this whole process feel like a walk in the park.

So patient with our never ending concerns & requests & not only answered every question we had, but asked questions that we never even knew we should be asking. Played an integral role in finding us exactly what we were looking for.

They handled my sale with ease.

Always prompt in returning questions as well as contacting me immediately with updates after open houses and showings. If I were to buy or sell in the future I'd feel comfortable hiring them again.

She was professional, on top of everything, provided great input and found houses that we wouldn't have found on our own.

It was nice knowing that she was looking after us both on the selling and buying side so we could relax more. Her personality was always positive and she took the time to really understand our lifestyle and what we wanted in our new home.

Kae, Eden Prairie

As first time home sellers (and somewhat a novice in this space) we needed someone we could trust and 'professionalism' was a high criteria for us.

Exceeded all expectations in terms of being proactive, attentive to detail, directive, and provided superior counsel. Also very responsive and never dismissed our concerns (understanding that every concern has its value). Relentless in advocating for our best interest. Thanks for your guidance and unconditional support through this tasking process. It was a very positive experience in all aspects!

Kevin and Jess

The realtor you want to work with!

Johnny B, Eden Prairie

By far one of the very best at what she does.

From start to finish, as she helped us through selling and buying and gave us great advice. She suggested projects that would maximize the value of our condo, and discouraged us from spending money on things that would not. She expertly marketed, priced and staged our place which resulted in a full price offer within hours of the open house. Then she showed us houses we would not have looked at, and when we fell in love with a place she was there to help us be practical, make good decisions, and not over pay.I can't recommend her highly enough.

Eden Prairie homeseller and homebuyer

A breath of fresh air to work with.

We thoroughly enjoyed working with her. She made the stressful process of buying and selling a home so much easier! She is genuine, honest, and incredibly hard working – not to mention reachable! There was no movement on the sale of our house until she took it on and in a short time got us two offers! In addition, she was available, flexible and extremely helpful in finding our current home. I can’t stress enough how helpful and wonderful she was to work with.

Chanhassen, MN

The JCT Group was a joy to work with.

Cindy's expertise and marketing savvy were exactly what we needed to sell our home quickly and for top dollar. I was extremely impressed with their attention to detail, constant updates, and willingness to go above and beyond to ensure the best selling experience possible. I will be referring them to my friends and family throughout the Minneapolis metro but especially the Eden Prairie, Chanhassen, and Minnetonka areas. Their knowledge and leverage in these areas is unsurpassed! Thanks Cindy and team!

Anna H

Thank you Cindy.

You did a great job selling my house. I know it wasn't easy but you got it done for me and I'm very happy with you. The photos made my home look so good and I really enjoyed watching the videos you made. I will definitely let anyone else I know needing to sell their house about you. Thank you so much.

Al Schneider, Minnetonka, MN

Wonderful!

We couldn't have a asked for a better experience with our buying our first home. They went above and beyond to help us find a perfect fit. We felt comfortable to put our trust in them to help us with tough decisions that go with buying a home. I would recommend them time and time again to anyone looking to buy a home.

Emily

We needed an agent who listened to our wishes, educated us throughout the home-buying experience, respected our feedback and ultimately turned all of that into reality - great choice.

Home buyer

Awesome!

She not only helped us buy our home, but due to a relocation, jumped into action to help us sell. We were impressed from start to finish with her knowledge of real estate, the current market, and her professionalism. She even exceeded expectations by coordinating our close with us in a different state. We are beyond grateful for her help, and would highly recommend for any of your buying or selling needs.

Reed S

Going into buying my first home I had no idea who to go to or even how to start.

She found out what I was looking for and recommended the best homes with that criteria. It didn't take long before we hit the jackpot and found the perfect home. I highly advise anybody to go to her if you're looking to buy a home, you won't regret it as you will find your dream home quicker than you thought.

Happy.

TG, Homeseller

It is a pleasure to write this review on the Cindy Welu team.

An exceptional realtor, and it was a pleasure to partner with her throughout the entire home buying process. To start, my husband and I live out of state and our goal was to help our son and daughter-in-law buy their first home. Since they had recently become new parents for a second son, the thought and time to go out looking at homes was overwhelming. Our goal was to fly out for a visit, view some homes and hopefully submit an offer prior to flying back out. Within this very small window of time that mostly fell on the weekend, they were able to make that all happen. Professional and prompt from our first phone interaction and every step of the way with extensive knowledge of the area, they listened to our needs, respected our time, found homes within our budget, along with all the, "wants" on our wishlist. A tremendous advocate on our behalf. Within just a few short hours after one of our viewings, we had our offer submitted and less than 24 hours later, the morning of our departure it was accepted!

Out of State Homebuyer

Enthusiastic, devoted to client, provides excellent advice.

Had 14 offers (four cash) in first week listing. Sold for 9 per cent over listed price. Wonderful person to work with, very well prepared.

P. Duncan, homeseller

She was very responsive, prompt and knowledgeable.

I was very impressed by, and pleased with her work. She also seemed to have a great relationship with all of the players we encountered (other agents, contractors, etc.) which is key for making things go as smoothly as possible. I would recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell their home in the Twin Cities!

Krista H

We had a great experience buying and selling with Cindy and team.

Their level of service and responsiveness is excellent. Their expertise is broad -- marketing, negotiation, etc. We would definitely work with them again and highly recommend them to others.

Quillans, EP

I would highly recommend Cindy and Farrah to anyone needing help buying or selling a home!

The service exceeded my expectations from beginning to end. They were responsive and strove to do everything possible to make the experience the best it could be! I've worked with several realtors in the southwest metro area and they put the customer first more than anyone I've worked with. Excellent service overall!

Natalie E, Minnetonka

A thorough professional who has deep knowledge about the entire home buying process.

She was swift and responsive to all our questions and assisted us in every manner possible to make sure we were comfortable with the sale.

Jay S, Eden Prairie

She immediately impressed me with her real estate knowledge and her excellent communication skills.

She had great follow up via phone and e-mail - not too much and not too often. She also did an amazing job of working directly with my renters to communicate important information regarding the property sale. The whole sales process went amazingly well from start to finish. I would not hesitate to recommend.

"Cindy and her team were truly exceptional. We were not only selling our first home, but we were doing it from out of state. They perfectly guided us through the process step by step, greatly reducing our stress levels! I was concerned our home wouldn't sell quickly because there were a million others just like it in the area. Cindy explained the benefits of pricing it right and we had an offer in less than a week! If I ever need to buy or sell again there's no question, I'll call Cindy!"

"We were out of the city. So we had limited time to visit Excelsior and see properties. Despite these Cindy was able to show us home within the price range we wanted. My wife and I are very happy with the purchase of our new house in new city. I cannot thank enough what she did for us."

"A true pro from staging to close. I was unaware she was known as the "real estate honey badger" but its appropriate. Negotiations with the buyer were tough but she fought for every dollar.Great job!"

"I would highly recommend Cindy for anyone selling a home. I'm sure she is just as good on the purchasing side, but I engaged her as a seller. She provided value from the first time I met with her, bringing several reports on recent sales in my neighborhood. It allowed us to accurately assess the market right then, as well as looking at trends over the past 3 months. Cindy is a direct communicator who won't waste your time. She will help you assess the pros and cons of every decision you make so that you are fully informed at every step. My home was beautifully decorated, and yet the stager she brought made it look even better. We set the price together based on selling it quickly at fair market value and it sold in two weeks. Then there were a few complications in the ensuing negotiations, which she took in stride and did a great job on my behalf. She was friendly and responsive throughout the process and I completely enjoyed working with her. I recommend her without hesitation!"

"We had the pleasure of working with Beth Petersen Randall and she is top notch!! without her help it would have been IMPOSSIBLE to get the house sold so quickly! We had two offers and it sold within one week.Beth truly goes above and beyond. She even walked the dog until we could get back to the house when there was a showing!! You will not find a better partner to work with when you are looking to sell your home. She is not a high pressure type, and really cares about her clients."

"I usually don't write review. But I felt I've to write something about Cindy to let her know how much I appreciate what she did for me to sell my old house. I decided to move in San Diego. So, I was looking for an agent with a lot of experiences to help me on selling my house and I found her. She did an amazing job, sold the house in a few weeks. God bless her."
