Cindy Smith

Cindy originally trained as an interior designer, and for the past 25 years has been working both independently and as part of start-ups like Feather Your Nest, interior design and redesign firm (one or two day home makeover). As part of Feather Your Nest work, she gained the Professional Home Stager designation (as one who prepares a home for sale to achieve maximum impact). This naturally led her closer to real estate.

Over the last few years, she has combined Real Estate Staging and Realtor Services into a new company called The Beautiful House to offer a unique specialization: both consulting with clients on how to maximize value (Staging) and then managing the sale of the home (Realty). Staging improves the desirability of your home, which can equate to fewer days on the market and a higher sales price. Together, staging and realty services are a virtuous circle.

For buyers, these skills are equally beneficial, but the process is reversed. Cindy can help you find your dream home and then help develop it into a reflection of yourself.

Cindy first moved to Northville in 1988 and now lives in her fifth Northville/Novi home. She’d love to help you buy or sell yours!
