A Little Bit About Me

Cindy Bennett, Associate Broker, ABR, GRI, GREEN

I was born and raised in Chesterfield County, so just south of Short Pump. After moving up and down the East Coast, I decided to settle back into the area, finally settling down in Henrico County. I have been selling real estate for nearly nineteen years and before that tried my hand at an array of different jobs. While all those jobs were great experiences, real estate has grabbed me and never let go. 

I would love to meet you, and learn how I can help you reach your real estate goals, whatever they may be.

What My Clients Are Saying

Cindy is a wonderful realtor. I was a single mom, purchasing my first home, and she walked me through every step of the process. She helped me get pre-approval, financing, and held my hand through a very long, closing process (due to gov’t changes). Throughout the whole experience, she provided incredible insight and professionalism. I got a great deal on my home and gained a friend in return. I’d absolutely recommend Cindy! – Leigh O
