Throughout the area you will see lots of Victorian inspired architecture from the late 19th and early 20th centuries and the central portion of Bon Air has even been designated as a National Historic District.

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.
