WOMEN IN BUSINESS
Athens Magazine August 2002]
As one of Athens' busiest Realtors, Cindy Mitchell of CENTURY
21, helps those looking for residential or
investment real estate in the Athens area and surrounding
counties, as well as nationwide.
According to Cindy, to
successfully help clients find the real estate that best suits
their needs, she has to have a good working relationship with home
inspectors, attorneys, termite specialists, handymen, gardeners,
movers, babysitters, veterinarians, maid services and other
Realtors, which involves trust, ethics and professionalism.
"It's like a beautiful work of art--it takes patience, talent and
hard work," Cindy says. " I like that clients, friends and family
refer me because that means they trust me unequivocally. I take
clients on as family. I counsel them through marriages, divorces,
births and deaths." She adds, " You've got to be there to help
them make the right decisions--legally and ethically--and handle
it all professionally but with heart."
Cindy continues: "My job is to be there for them now and ten
years from now, to listen and support these huge decisions, and
sometimes advise them not to move at all. What it comes down to is
looking after their best interest." A perfect example of
this happened recently when Cindy spent part of a day with a
client, helping her sort through photographs, listening to her
reminisce and even helping her pack her china. "I care for people
from the heart," says Cindy. "Listening and taking the time to
discover my clients needs provides the help they need to smooth
out major changes in their life."
Just as her
garden--cultivated from clippings and gifts given to her by
satisfied clients--offers visitors a soothing respite from the
stress of everyday life, so to does Cindy offer peace of mind from
the worries of hunting for a home.
Cindy loves what she does
and names among her passions the joy of watching someone's eyes
light up when she helps them find the right home. As she so simply
puts it, "It's just fun."
