Cindy Bennett Reviews
Cindy is great! She knows what needs to be done and doesn’t mess around. She helped me sell my mother’s house in record time. The inside was dated, and she helped me identify what needed updating prior to putting it on the market. She had names on the ready for good, reliable help to do the job. I thoroughly enjoyed working with her and would call on her again in a heartbeat! – Angie G.
