My fiance and I were first time home buyers in the Triangle and we couldn't have chosen a better realtor! Cynthia's vast knowledge of the area and experience made the home buying process so much less stressful. We highly recommend Cynthia!

Cynthia is the best! Made the whole process of buying and selling so easy for us! When we decided to sell the house which we bought with her help before, we felt very confident with all her suggestions and advises. The price she suggested was just right, so we got multiple offers the next day after putting house on the market.

"Cynthia was fantastic to work with, from start to finish. We both are lawyers and have a knack for details, and we felt comfortable knowing that Cynthia is just as detail-oriented as we are. We were comforted in feeling like the situation was, at all times, under control with Cynthia at the helm! We recommend her services unequivocally and without any hesitation!"

Cynthia is a true professional, and we were fortunate to work with her for our recent Inside the Beltline home sale. She did extensive background work to provide us with comps for this diverse neighborhood and gave her honest opinion about our home’s value, noting pros and cons and what we could do to make our home more appealing. Cynthia stays on top of all the details so nothing falls through the cracks and was great for keeping us informed. In these days of discount brokers and listing services, I can’t stress enough how valuable it was for us to have Cynthia, backed by Fonville Morisey, working on our behalf."

You have so many creative ideas Cynthia. And I love your backyard it is adorable. Any homeowner would be blessed to have you as their realtor ... you are awesome!! Always thinking outside the box.. I love that! (Facebook 3/20/2019)

I have had the pleasure of doing business with Cynthia on both the buy and sell side of several Real Estate transactions. Allow me to say she is the consumate professional. Wether buying or selling she comes to the meeting well prepared with facts and data to support her recommendations for an equitable market price that makes sense. As a seller, she brings meticulous research on the true value of your home with comparisons of all other sales in the area, along with pluses and minuses of each as they relate to your home. I have never had a Realtor come to a potential listing so well prepared. Yet at the same time she will take the time to listen to your side of the story about your home to help come to a realistic market price. As a buyer, she again takes the time to listen to your particular needs and wants to prepare a list of potential homes that fit your parameters without trying to upsell beyond your means as many Realtors are prone to do. Her intimate knowledge of the local market means less time searching for the "Perfect" home. Anyone looking to buy or sell Real Estate in the Raleigh market should consider themselves priveledged to have Cynthia working on their behalf. (from Zillow 03192019)

Over the years, Cynthia has helped my family buy 3 houses and sell 3 more. Each transaction had its own quirks (don't they all?) but every time, Cynthia was by our side and often leading the way to help navigate the sale/purchase. I trust her abilities so much that she is the only broker I recommend to friends, and each one has been happy with the result and appreciative of her services. Whether navigating "challenging" personalities or helping the buyer/seller (sometimes me!) understand the financial realities of the current market, Cynthia's great at all of it. The next time we buy or sell, I'm calling Cynthia (again)! (Zillow 03 2019)

Cynthia was my realtor when I bought a N. Raleigh town home five years ago. She was detailed, enthusiastic and professional throughout the process and kept me as a potential homeowner calm and informed. She was also my realtor when I sold the same property 3 years later, and again went above and beyond the call of duty to help me list, give me pointers on showing the home, and work with the buyer and buyer's agent. It was as painless a process as Cynthia could make it, and I appreciated her ability to juggle details while keeping me informed and assuring me that we would have a successful sale (we did! And a quick one!). I cannot recommend Cynthia highly enough as a realtor. (Zillow 03 2019)

We first met Cynthia 12 years ago when she generously gave us her time to drive around the Raleigh/Durham area to see what kind of properties we could purchase within our budget. Nine months later we came back and Cynthia helped us find a wonderful home. When it was time to downsize, of course, we called Cynthia again (after she helped our son find his home!). She patiently helped us through a long, frustrating experience with a new construction home. She stayed involved throughout the 11 month process and continually "went to bat" for us with the builder. During the process, she listed our home for sale after helping us prep it and price it appropriately. Cynthia is not only the consummate professional and extremely knowledgeable, she is hardworking, friendly and goes the extra mile for her clients. You won't regret using Cynthia for buying and selling in the Raleigh area!
-- Bonnie and Dave L.
My fiancé and I were lucky enough to have Cynthia as our realtor for our first home search. We met through family friends who highly recommended her based on her experience and expansive knowledge of the Triangle area. From the start, Cynthia exceeded our expectations of what we hoped to find in a realtor! She spent hours reviewing every detail with us to make sure we understood all the aspects of buying our first home. After our first meeting we knew not only that we had made the right decision to use her as our realtor, but trusted her to guide us in the right direction for our first home. Her guidance was invaluable to us throughout the entire process. She made our first home buying experience as seamless as it could be!
-- Megan L.
Cynthia exceeded our expectations! We knew after our first meeting with her that she was what we needed. This was our first time going through the process of selling a home and purchasing another. As a result of Cynthia's vast knowledge and timely suggestions, our home received an offer the first few days after being on the market! She did everything that she said that she would from beginning to end. Cynthia answered all of our questions and made sure that every detail of the process was clear. She made us feel secure and confident that everything was going to be okay throughout the process. We appreciate Cynthia's real estate knowledge and professionalism. We did not feel pressured to purchase "just anything" because we were faced with a serious time crunch. Instead Cynthia took her time to listen to our needs and made sure that we were happy. I'd heard so many great things about her from my colleagues prior to my experience with her and I am so glad that I was able to experience it for myself! I could not have imagined this process without her. It was life changing for our family. I am so thankful for her and what she contributes to the real-estate world.

Cynthia has been a welcome and dedicated addition to a diverse team enabling us to purchase two rental properties to ensure my eventual ability to retire comfortably. These properties were carefully vetted by Cynthia, who handled everything from neighboring pit-bulls to unexpected "drop-in guests" with professionalism and cool grit. Our use of a third-party LLC (American IRA) required each and every financial transaction to be made through an out of town third party, which she handled with professional courtesy and a much appreciated and required attention to detail.
-- Andrea L.
Cynthia is a huge asset to our team at the Fonville Morisey, Inside the Beltline Office. Her great attention to detail, area knowledge, and patience definitely make her a valued resource to her clients and to our company. She has the ability to navigate through the most complicated issues with a positive attitude and tenacity, and her passion for her job is inspiring! We are so proud to have her on our team!

When I finally felt ready to put my house on the market, a friend referred me to Cynthia. I needed to not only sell my house but buy another smaller house in the area. Cynthia came out and provided me with thorough and honest advice on what to do to get my house in the best shape possible to put on the market and also strongly encouraged me to try and get it listed as early in the Spring as possible. That was great motivation for me but due to my emotional attachment to the house, it was not always an easy task. However, listening to Cynthia paid off as my house sold on the first day it was listed! Through no fault of Cynthia’s, things didn’t go quite so smoothly after that first day but ultimately my house did sell and I was able to purchase a great new house! Throughout the process Cynthia worked tirelessly for me and my interests. Even though I knew she had other clients (and a personal life), I always felt that I was the most important thing to her at that moment. And I also learned to appreciate how organized and efficient she was with all the necessary paperwork when we spent time waiting on our buyers or sellers to get things done; things we had completed immediately. She stayed on top of everything. I trusted Cynthia and relied on her for a lot of advice throughout the process of both selling and buying. She was able to figure out what I needed the most from her and always provided it……and we laughed a lot along the way. Although I sometimes felt discouraged during the process, I never felt defeated. Cynthia wouldn’t let me. She allowed me my “down” moments but then got us moving again in a proactive and forward direction! I know it was her knowledge of the area, her knowledge of the business and her big heart that made this an ultimately positive experience. I recommend Cynthia highly and will happily use her assistance again if the need arises.

We were fortunate enough to have met and worked with Cynthia during our transition to North Carolina from our home on Oahu, Hawaii. In the most perfect of circumstances, relocating 5000 miles with 5 small dogs to a place we were less than familiar with would have been challenging. Cynthia, however, made so many of the possible "issues" manageable with her professionalism and positive attitude. She skyped with us for nearly an hour during our initial meeting to help us feel comfortable with her and her process and answer any questions. She worked with us collaboratively over the online MLS system so we could preview and review homes that met our criteria. She hosted us during our very short house hunting trip and led us through an ambitious house visit schedule to make sure we covered all of the ground we needed to in order to feel good about our decision. She even brought snacks in her vehicle in case we began to feel peckish during our marathon house hunt. We had our hopes set on a house we had found online months before our visit and, with Cynthia's skill navigating negotiations, we were able to secure an accepted contract while we were flying back to Hawaii (hooray for wifi and Docusign!). This would have been more than we could have ever wanted in a realtor but Cynthia didn't stop there. She went far beyond our expectations helping line up and be present for inspections and other issues since we were so far away and on an ambitious timeline for close. She negotiated a rental agreement for us because we needed housing for us and the dogs prior to close. She has, to this day, continued to be an amazing resource for referrals for different service professionals we can trust for our home. On top of that, Cynthia is a smart, funny and loving woman who loves her family, her dog and her work more than you can imagine. This love makes her someone you not only want to work with and trust but someone you just want to know. Thank you, Cynthia, from the bottom of our hearts. Kathi, Bill and the 5 Bichons

Cynthia was my listing agent during a difficult time - the sale of my childhood home following the death of my mother. She was very detailed and her market knowledge and sales experience were above par, all while being attuned to the emotional component involved in the transaction. We were fortunate to have a buyer right away. Her guidance during this process was thorough. Cynthia is the quintessential professional and I highly recommend her!!!
-- Charlotte G.
We love our new home. It felt comfortable right away and it is fun to be closer to town. Thanks for all your patience and hard work over the 4 years it took us to make the move, it wasn't easy for us to decide to do, but rewarding. (Personal note June 2015)
-- Sandy G.
Thanks to Cynthia, our house was sold Immediately after it was listed. The process was quick and perfectly executed, with no headache at all for us. She was professional and personable and showed a great understanding of the area. (Originally reviewed and posted on Zillow 08/02/2015)

This was my second time working with Cynthia, and both experiences were great! In 2008, she helped me and my husband buy our first home and this year when we decided it was time to sell, we immediately called Cynthia to guide us through the process. Our home went under contract on Day zero, before we'd even publicly listed it, and we closed exactly one month later! Cynthia was incredibly responsive throughout the process, and treated us as if we were her most important clients. She is incredibly professional, while being very personable and enthusiastic at the same time. I would recommend her in a heartbeat! (Originally reviewed and published on Trulia 11/30/2014)

I cannot thank Cynthia enough for her assistance in finding my home. She made our extremely tight timeline for relocation easy and fun. Cynthia is an absolute joy to work with! Cynthia sets you up with your own customized web updates of homes that meet your selected criteria (e.g. rooms, price, neighborhood, etc.) You get the updates daily. Cynthia was available at a moments notice to go check out homes or answer questions. She has extensive knowledge about the real estate market and is fun to be around. Cynthia also set me up with very reputable and courteous professionals (lender, home inspector, etc.) to assist with my purchase, If you are looking to buy/sell a home, look no further. Call Cynthia Parker and set up an appointment today. you will not be disappointed! (Originally reviewed and posted on Trulia 05/24/2015)
