Good Morning!!!!!

Would if I could, make it that easy; a 101 Course. Let’s face it, there is nothing easy about making the largest purchase of your life, or selling something you have put your heart and soul into and now people will be walking through critiquing it. As a Realtor, part of my job is to help you with that. I’m not saying I can take all the anxiety out of it, but I can give you the information you need to make good decisions. As they say, with knowledge comes power.


My name is Cindy Penkoff and I am a Real Estate agent with the Fairfield Coldwell Banker Office. I must admit, not many people can say this, I LOVE my job. It is many of the job things I love all rolled into one; sales, promotion, numbers, staging (decorating), helping people through an exciting and stressful decision and contracts. Yes I like contracts. Contracts are defined, clear, structured and specific. Dot the i’s and cross those t’s. Now if we could work in shoes and music, I would know perfection.  J


All of that leads us to the here and now and why I am “talking” to you.  It is now one of my jobs to help my readers navigate the world of Real Estate, which is much more than one might think. I want to help with everything from organizing and decorating the house to sell for the holidays to “how much can I afford to spend?”.  For the record, I will be handing you off to a mortgage specialist for that one.  Understanding why Connecticut State Laws requires “blah” and why a licensed home inspector can save you from the money pit.


But, today is about introductions.  Tomorrow we will start to talk about the local markets, what is happening and what we can expect to see because of them.


For now, may I say, it’s been a pleasure and I look forward to this new adventure.

As a sales person for the past 30 years, I have sold everything from candles to cars. I know that helping people to pick out what best shows their personality is the key to a happy client, whether it is their favorite scent or the overstuffed chair that will have a home in the family room for many years to come. I carry with me the experience and challenge of making sure every client feels at home. I chose Real Estate as a career as it combines my affinity for people, homes and the process of bringing the two of them together. With a natural love of form and function, color and texture and the ability to see things for what they can be, I find it easy to combine my talents to help my clients find the home they’ve been dreaming of or helping those that wish to sell their homes and move on to their next adventure. Although I wouldn't be considered a "seasoned" agent, I feel like I have been doing this my whole life. Add to that the experience of being the assistant to a million dollar producer, my clients get the best of all worlds. Someone who looks at things with a fresh eye as well as someone who has the knowledge to walk them down the road of what can sometimes be a stressful experience My husband and I have been together for 25 years and have a 14 year old son. We live in Trumbull where I sit on the Board of Finance. I believe in giving back. I volunteer as much as possible and have been known to juggle many balls at once. Nothing makes me happier than at the end of a project, seeing the joy it creates. I love my job, my family, my dogs and my country.
