My career in Real Estate has brought a perfect balance to my life - I love to meet new people and help others in a real and tangible way - it’s the best decision, professionally, that I’ve ever made. I’m extremely happy with where my life is now and I know that this reflects in my relationships and the satisfying results that I’m able to achieve for my clients.

Getting here was a long journey, starting with my upbringing in balmy, sun-drenched Ecuador. I attended an American High School, which opened my eyes to the world outside the tropical paradise I’d grown up in. In University I wanted to explore and decided to go on an exchange. I turned to the Dean of the School of Economics for advice; he told me “Cynthia, you are a very smart person, you know that if you go to school in a party city like Miami or New Orleans all you are going to do is party. If I were you, I would seriously consider going to a good school in a calm and quiet city where you are going to focus on your education and have a good life. Take a look at the University of Alberta, it's a really good school, and Canada is a beautiful Country.” It’s not like partying 24/7 didn’t appeal to me, I just took myself way more seriously back then than I do now… talk about growing up lol.

I arrived in Canada in August of 2006. Everyone thought it was hilarious that I dressed for fall weather with layers of gloves, scarves, multiple sweaters and a thick winter jacket before winter had even arrived. Growing up, a “cold” day was 22 degrees celsius. When the temperatures eventually fell to a ghastly -50 a few months later, I curled-up in my dorm room, wearing every single piece of clothing that I owned, and questioned my sanity for choosing to move to such a cold place.

When the cold snap was over and feeling returned to my fingers and toes, I realized that there were actually a lot of benefits to living here…even in the Winter. I love Skiing and Banff was just a few hours away by car. Summers are gorgeous and allow for plenty of time on the golf course. Also, given my love and knowledge of good food – Edmonton offers an endless array of good restaurants to explore.

Shortly after graduating I debated between returning home to Ecuador and putting down roots in Edmonton. I ended up getting a very promising job at a Bank where I was a ‘High-Value Client Senior Investment Representative.’ After two years I realized that even though I was good at my job, I was not happy. My friend Nathan who worked for Liv Real Estate always seemed to be happy, and over dinner one night I picked his brain and thought that perhaps Real Estate might be the right fit for me too.

What you do in life is just as important as who you do it with. I found I had a lot in common with Sheldon and Sara with regards to values, goals, and what’s important in life; they are definitely people that I could look up to and respect – personally and professionally. I joined the brokerage in 2011 and haven’t looked back since.

Cynthia is awesome at what she does. She worked with us for months and helped us get an amazing first home. Cynthia was very friendly and informative from the get go. She is accommodating and very easy to chat with. She had answers to most of our queries and whatever she wasn't sure of, she confirmed later and replied in a timely manner in detail. Her sense of humor is always a welcome sight. She knows her stuff and we would recommend her to everyone. We experienced the best customer service and like to think we gained a friend when we decided to hire Cynthia. Thank you so much.

Cynthia took the time to learn exactly what I wanted, and was flexible when my requirements changed. Cynthia is polite, professional, and she respected my time. As a first time home buyer she explained things clearly, and was a great support through the whole process. I highly recommend working with Cynthia.

Cynthia was wonderful to work with! Since the beginning, when she first contacted me for a viewing at a house we were interested in, she was never too pushy. Other real estate companies would send me emails, or call every 3 days wanting a follow up. She respected our pace and we really appreciated it. She was always on time for visits and very flexible regarding where to meet and when to meet (including weekends and evenings). When she was on vacation, she made sure another staff was assigned to us, and Mauricio was also great to work with! When she was showing houses, she would explain what things were and their purpose, it was great for us to learn. Whenever we had questions about something in the house, or anything related to home ownership, she would answer us. She is very knowledgeable and understands about this industry! Since we’re newbies, and never had to deal with contractors / house inspectors / lawyers in Canada, Cynthia helped us by recommending some people her company had worked with previously and they were all great professionals with fair prices. Overall the purchasing experience was very smooth and we’re so happy with our new home!
