Cindy – Client Testimonials

  • We recently purchased a condo with our brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Brian and Zanthia Timblin. We contacted Cindy at Tomlinson Sotheby's (International Realty), and she made arrangements to show us the unit, even though Cindy was in the process of moving. When we decided to make an offer, Cindy worked with the homeowner's association to get answers for the numerous questions that we had. One bank loan was submitted and we were able to close on our original deadline. Communication from beginning to closing was exceptional. This was not a large transaction, but we were treated as though it was. The positive experience would definitely cause us to recommend Cindy and Tomlinson Sotheby's (International Realty.) Respectively, Dale Jeffres
  • Cindy Bond is the consummate real estate professional! Despite dealing with "nasty neighbors" Cindy remained dedicated to our goal of selling our property.  We thank her for her persistence & diligence! I recently met a banker in Monument, Colorado who I did refer Cindy to. If he does contact Cindy, I know she will serve him well. Dale & Terri Pyne
  • The performance of Tomlinson-Sotheby's and especially Cindy Bond in the sale of our home and the search and purchase of a new home was outstanding. We weren't the easiest clients to deal with, yet Cindy was always so patient and understanding.  She is very professional and has tremendous energy. The end result was that the sale of our house went off "without a hitch" as did the purchase of our new home in Black Rock. Spencer & Ann
  • Cindy and the team of professionals at Sotheby’s did an amazing job helping us market, promote and sell our waterfront home in Sandpoint. She provided us with an in-depth business and market analysis, had regular communication with us, did a fabulous job of qualifying potential buyers (respecting our privacy and needs of our family) and helped find the “right” buyer for our home. No other agency in the area provides the level of professional marketing needed in this “connected” age than Sotheby's. Kudos to Cindy and thanks again. —

  • We selected Cindy Bond to sell our waterfront property in the Spring. She impressed us from the very start with her positive attitude and professional approach to all aspects of getting our house listed, marketed and, in a fairly short span of time, sold. We valued her unshakable positive attitude and tireless energy level. With the benefit now of elapsed time, what remains vivid in our minds is the high level of integrity she demonstrated throughout. Simply, if she said she was going to do something, it got done on, or ahead of, schedule.

  • I think it has been a year ago today that we closed on our house. Time sure flies by fast.
    We have been very happy in our new home, and you contributed to us finding the right place. We looked at a lot of homes, traveled many, many miles throughout the northern part of Idaho. I was always impressed with your organization and familiarity of the areas that we were interested in. We were always able to see a lot of homes, without feeling rushed or pressured to find something to buy. Cindy's goal was to assist us in finding the perfect home for us, no matter how long it took. She made the hunt a fun and educational experience, since we were new to the area. I would highly recommend Cindy to anyone who is buying or selling a house. Thanks for all of your help!

  • My wife & I would strongly recommend Cindy Bond & her team to represent you whether buying or selling in the Sandpoint area.  Cindy’s commitment, knowledge and non-stop energy will help you find the right place or market your home to sell quickly.  My wife & I have bought/sold over a dozen properties throughout our marriage.  Some for investment and others for just living in.  We wish we had Cindy with us on every transaction.

  • To Whom It May Concern; Dumb Luck… no better way to describe it. As it happens Dumb Luck was the manner in which we made the acquaintance of Ms.Cindy Bond. For that we are very fortunate people. My wife and I were not looking for a Real Estate Agent. We had never been to the Sandpoint area & were looking for a “Tour Guide” to show us around. Cindy accepted the task and proceeded to show and explain to us her little comer of the world. Never did we feel pressured to do anything more than to just observe and learn. Hard to describe Cindy in a few words but we will try: Passionate, Knowledgeable, Respectful, Tenacious, Loyal, Organized, Focused. Cindy is an excellent listener and has the ability to take what you think you are trying to say and formulate it into an actionable thought process. In the end we found this area to be our little comer of the world as well. Cindy did fulfill the role and responsibility of our purchasing agent… and did it superbly. We consider Cindy to be an Outstanding Representative of her Craft and are pleased to consider her a friend.

    Dick & Sue
  • I took a look at the work you did in listing my property. I know that I come off as a hurry and get it done person, and most of the time it’s true. But, you did a FANTASTIC JOB in listing the property. Great pictures! I just wanted to say thank you…
    Steven & Susan
  • I just wanted to say thank you again for all you have done for me in the past year. I’m grateful not only for your hard work and expertise, but also for your patience and your kindness in leading me through the emotionally complicated territory of selling my parents house. I count it as one of my father’s last gifts to me, that I ended up with you as a Realtor. With many thanks & best wishes…
    Liz
  • I just wanted to take a moment to share with you how pleased we are. Sandpoint is everything we were looking for, and exceeded our expectations. We’re both very comfortable working with you. You are obviously experienced and are very knowledgeable. We are in good hands.
    Jack & Lori
  • Thank you for helping us find this little piece of heaven, “Cape of Art.” We’re both excited & look forward to building there & being neighbors & friends.
    Dave & Sheila
  • Just a quick note to say ‘Thank You’ to you and your staff for all your hard work. It is greatly appreciated.
    Ken
  • First of all, as inadequate as these words are, thank you! Words are almost inadequate to express our gratitude and appreciation to Cindy Bond and all she did to ensure the sale of our house and property.  We realized early on that our place was somewhat unique and that it would take a pretty specific type of buyer.  Cindy took on that challenge readily and we were amazed by all that she did for us.  The advertising, photos, and brochures were amazing and so professional.  We appreciated being able to receive weekly updates on not only how many people looked at our home in person, but online and where they were from. When we eventually did have a contract, we were 1800 miles away and Cindy not only served as our realtor, but the stand-in seller for us.  There were so many obstacles in the final weeks and without Cindy’s dedication and commitment, we could not have closed the sale.  Her knowledge and experience in the nuances of so many issues was invaluable.  We have had several homes throughout the years and we have never had the dedicated service which Cindy provided. I would and, in fact, have already recommended her to friends who are looking to buy or sell in the Sandpoint area.  As far as we are concerned, she is without peers. If you are looking for a real estate agent who you can trust to look out for your best interest, she stands alone. So Cindy, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
    Joanne & Larry
  • I enjoyed working with you on the lot sales.  You recognized the objective of the Bank was to get the lots sold, and that to do so required aggressive pricing.  Within a selling period of approximately 6 months you successfully sold and closed 12 remote 5-acre lots.  Thanks again for a job well done.
    Dan
  • When it comes to choosing a realtor, Cindy offers the whole package. Experience, dedication, timely communication, and integrity.  Most important, she loves what she does, and that in itself greatly rewards her clients.  For most segments of the market she would be my clear choice as a buyer or seller. If I had to state any negative, it would be the mild discomfort I feel as a result of how laboriously she is working on my behalf. Love, Light and Laughs and a Merry Christmas and Happy Healthy Prosperous New Years to you and yours…
    Steven & Susan
  • We were extremely happy with the results we achieved in working with Cindy Bond. Cindy not only met our expectations of a realtor, she exceeded them. Cindy is very professional, knowledgeable, organized and results driven. She is very thorough in her marketing plan, and is constantly reviewing marketing data to adjust her plan accordingly. We have worked with other realtors, and were disappointed. Once we had signed a contract, we didn’t feel they worked as hard during the sale process as they did to convince us to sign a contract with them. With Cindy it was different. She worked harder once she had our business. Being from out of state, communication was important to us. Cindy was in constant communication with us about nearly every viewing. Most importantly, when nothing was happening, she called us to let us know that nothing was happening instead of leaving us to wonder. (No fault of her own that nothing was happening, it was winter in a down market) Cindy works incredibly hard 24/7. If the market is slow, Cindy works just as hard trying to find ways to create opportunities. We would recommend Cindy without hesitation, and intend to work with her again in the future. Thanks for all your help Cindy!

  • Let me put this as succinctly as I can, after 13 moves, and 6 sales and purchases of homes we can absolutely say this was the best. You made it fun but respected our price limits (HUGE), and your knowledge of the area and the market were invaluable and unmatched. We have bought and sold in Washington DC, Norfolk, VA, San Diego and Cincinnati, and NEVER had a better experience. We have always been happy with the homes we chose…this time we are ecstatic.   Thank you!!!
