      • Cindy listed and sold my home

          Excellent. Cindy is a highly knowledgeable, kind, experienced realtor who will sell your home in an efficient, expedient manner. I give her my highest recommendation.

        • Cindy listed and sold my home

          • Cindy listed and sold my home

              We just completed our third home sale with Cindy. She has a thorough knowledge of the market, promptly answers calls, and streamlines what can be a stressful process so that we could just concentrate on moving. Her experience and professionalism make her a top choice--highly recommend!

            • Cindy listed and sold my home

                Our experiences have been great with Cindy. We have worked with Cindy multiple times and because of the trust we have in her as a real estate expert we will always call her first if we are buying or selling a house.

              • Cindy helped me buy a home

                  Cindy found us a beautiful home after we moved here from Canada. She guided us toward the perfect neighborhood for all of our needs. Cindy is the most caring, warm, and knowledgeable person who will always go the extra mile with her time and effort. I will definitely have her find my next house when the time comes.

                • Cindy listed and sold my home

                    We have used Cindy's expertise and knowledge on numerous occasions and had great success with her. She helped us purchase and sell 2 different homes. Not only did she help us select the perfect homes for our needs, she was present and helpful throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Cindy. She is a true professional.

                  • Cindy listed and sold my home

                      Cindy was world class in her care and dedication to present my home in the best light. Her attention to detail, staging, and communication made my experience seamless and helped us sell quickly. Highly recommend Cindy!

                    • Over the years, both my wife and I have become fairly jaded about those who make their living from the realty industry. Countless realtors use words like "ethical" and "professional" to describe themselves. However, few (and I mean very few) actually proved to us that they possessed these character traits. We believe the Welu's do possess these traits. They have restored some of our faith in real estate "professionals". The sale of our house was at times very trying. Don't let anyone tell you selling your home is going to be a cake walk. With the crazy times the real estate industry has gone through over the last several years, I'm sure our stories would pale in comparison to others. With that though, no matter how stressful the sale process became, they were always there to calm our nerves and concentrate on what we wanted to do, what was best for us. We used their team for both the sale of our house, and the purchase of our new home. They did a very good job. They gave sound advice and got both deals done (in spite of the other realty "professional" they had to deal with for our sale). I would recommend Joe and Cindy without hesitation

                      - S. White , Eden Prairie MN
                    • If you are debating between different agents to list your house I would recommend picking Cindy Welu. We had listed our house for sale with a different agent and had it on the market for around four months and we failed to sell it. We pulled our listing when winter came around and decided to relist in the spring. We considered relisting with four different agents, and we ultimately decided to give the her team a chance. When interviewing other agents we felt as though most of them were telling us what we wanted to hear. We didn't want to have to maintain a vacant property by handling snow removal, worry about showings dragging in sand/salt/snow in the home, and didn't think there would be much interest while the weather was so cold. Cindy on the other hand told us not to wait until the spring, showed us statistics emphasizing low inventory, and reminded us that many others would also be relisting in the spring. She encouraged me hit the market early and to beat the competition regardless of what agent we decided to use. We listened to her, gave her the business, and she had sold our home in just a few weeks. Most of all we appreciated the no pressure approach. She comes across as a trusted advisor, and not like some other agents I've used in the past that remind you a car sales person. She also didn't make us feel as though we were inconveniencing her as we called and emailed throughout the selling process. Finally we really appreciated that we worked directly with her throughout the process, and she didn't simply dump the work on another associate. After buying and selling properties with four different agents over around 12 years I can confidently say that this experience with Cindy was the smoothest. I would highly recommend working with her.

                      - Todd E., Eden Prairie, MN
                    • Joe and Cindy sold my last 2 homes and made the process painless (even in a tough selling market) Their marketing tools and overall knowledge of the business set them far above their peers. Hire Them!!!!, you won't be disappointed. They sold 3 homes in total for me and did a great job.

                      - Beth P, Edina/Mpls/Carver
                    • I usually don't write reviews. But I felt I needed to write something to let Cindy know how much I appreciate what she did for me to sell my old house. I decided to move to San Diego so I was looking for an agent with a lot of experience and I found her. She did and amazing job, sold the house in a few weeks. God Bless her.

                      - J.M. , Excelsior
                    • Extremely professional and responsive. The entire process was smooth and carefree for us. They listened to our concerns and provided great answers and feedback. They assisted us knowing what steps to do in order to make the house ready to sell and it sold very quickly for the price we asked for. Great Job

                      - Tim K, Eden Prairie, MN
                    • Cindy helped me find a home when I moved to Victoria, MN and helped me sell the home when I moved away. I highly recommend her. She works hard, knows the local market well and is always available.

                      - Victoria, MN
                    • Cindy stepped in to help us sell our home after we had challenges with a previous agent. The marketing of our home was superior in every way to what we had been getting previously and the increase in showing traffic with the right buyers was noticeable. We appreciated their upbeat and professional communication style. We had a few bumps in the road on our buyer's side before closing and Cindy helped get things taken care of and close the deal. I think her expertise was key to helping prevent the deal from falling apart. This allowed us to finally move after many stressful months of showings that had been getting us no where with the previous agent. We are grateful for having been able to move to the area we had been dreaming of and this would not have happened without Cindy's help.

                      - Heather L, Minnetonka, MN
                    • Cindy and team are great people, striving for excellence in what they do everyday.

                      - Fred R, Chanhassen, MN
                    • Very professional. Always keeps you informed and up to date on your transaction and always available.

                      - R. Phelps, Chanhassen, MN
                    • Cindy and her team moved fast to get my home listed and photographed for the ads. We sold in less than 45 days from the first listing and we amazed with the overwhelming response from buyers. I highly recommend Cindy and give her team a big A+ for the great teamwork.

                      - George, Eden Prairie, MN
                    • Our home was listed with two other teams before we found this team. In fact, it was on the market a total of 9 moths with other agents before we listed with the Welu's in the fall. they got more showings on our home in the "slow time of the year" than the other agents did in the spring and summer. Who would have thought our home would sell in November at full price. I guess you were right when you said it was all about the exposure. Thanks a million to you and your great team.

                      - Rob and JoAnn A., Minnetrista, MN
                    • Kathy and I would like to thank you so much for what you have done in making this house deal comeabout and close, plus all the extras you have done. If you ever need a recommendation we willbe at the head of the line.

                      - Ken Secora
                    • Awesome RealtorsCindy and Allie were committed to selling my home. Their knowledge and skills were invaluable in preparing my home for showings as evidenced by how many showings occurred and how many offers were received. My home sold for more than my asking price. Thank you!

                      - Patrick M, Eden Prairie, MN
                    • Wonderful experienceWe have again been blessed with a wonderful experience with the Welu team. We had a very aggressive timeline to sell our home due to relocation and helped us sell our house extremely quickly. We had an offer the second day on the market and were able to close within a very short period. This made our relocation much less stressful than we anticipated. Thank you so much for the wonderful service.

                      - M & K
                    • Satisfied customerCindy's assistant was very helpful and responsive to queries at every stage of the process. The entire team was very professional, and the photos that were taken were superb.

                      - Eric D., Chanhassen, MN
                    • It's been a little over 6 months since the sale of my Eden Prairie Townhome and I'm still excited about it! Why? Well, I've been watching the SOLD's and I know for a fact that I got top dollar for my townhome.How did I get TOP DOLLAR$$$? I received excellent advice from the WELU team and I followed it to the letter. It was much easier than I thought (and less expensive) to get my townhouse ready for Sale - I followed my agents suggestions and did not allow myself to get overwhelmed.I was thinking about why this went so well so I could help anyone considering WELU decide if they were right for the sale of your home and here's what I came up with.1) I followed the suggestions made by my agent2) WELU has all the Vendors you need to hire at their finger tips (Painter, HVAC, Handyman)3) I acted and secured the Vendors immediately (the market is hot - right? Do it now!)4) WELU put my wishes first! (I wanted a wonderful family to buy my house, Top Dollar$$$, closing on my time line, and no surprises!)5) Circle back to #1 - I did what the professionals suggested!My home went on the market on a Thursday afternoon and was under contract for full asking price and closing on my time schedule (I was heading to Europe for a couple of weeks) within 72 hours!The tough part of selling my home was the dcor. I have very strong (not midwestern) taste in color, art and dcor. I was worried that buyers would not like my style and that I needed to have everything painted and new flooring - you know the drill. My agent (Beth) assured me that it wasn't necessary and if I did a little paint repair, and a few other things I'd be just fine - she was right.I give WELU a 5 STAR rating for providing the guidance and expertise I needed to sell my beautiful home. They couldn't actually pick the family who purchased my home but the Universe handled that perfectly. There's another beautiful young family enjoying the best view in the Village and amazing neighbors.

                      - Mary A, Eden Prairie, MN
                    • We are very pleased with the outcome of our short sale. The Joe and Cindy Team stuck with the process and negotiated to our best interest with the bank and the buyer. We appreciate all the work they have done to help us stay out of foreclosure status. I would recommend there professional services to anyone looking to sell a distressed house.

                      - Nate, Eden Prairie, MN
                    • Cindy and her team were wonderful! Very professional, knowledgeable and fun to work with through the selling and buying process. I had been out of the market for many years but they answered all my questions and ensured I was informed every step of the way. Would Highly Recommend!

                      - Sonja P, Chanhassen, MN
                    • Home buying and selling can be such a stressful period, but the team was fantastic and guided us through the process! The market was heating up, but they really listened to our needs and budget, and showed us great houses. It took us a few tries to find the house of our dreams, but they were there working with us through it all. We were provided great advice and knowledge, and when we are ready to look for our next dream house, they will be our first call

                      - Gail L, Chaska, MN
                    • We had a great experience buying and selling with Cindy. Her level of service and responsiveness is excellent. Her expertise is broad -- marketing, negotiation, etc. We would definitely work the them again and highly recommend them to others.

                      - John L. , Eden Prairie, MN
                    • I am so blessed. The move itself was eventful with the moving truck being unreliable, and we arrived tired. But it would have been nonexistant had it not been for unfailing efforts of our Realtor, Cindy Welu and her fabulous team. I met her 9 years ago when she helped us buy the house and that experience assured me she is the person I wanted to help me sell it. Thank you Cindy and the entire staff for making this Christmas a homecoming for me.

                      - J.M.G, Eden Prairie, MN
                    • We were out of the city. So we had limited time to visit Excelsior and see properties. Despite these Cindy was able to show us home within the price range we wanted. My wife and I are very happy with the purchase of our new house in new city. I cannot thank enough what she did for us.

                      - Scott Ryan, Excelsior, MN
                    • Cindy is very knowledgeable and committed to serving her clients needs. She answered my calls always. More importantly, she was a very understanding to our needs.

                      - James W. , Eden Prairie, MN
                    • Cindy helped me find a home when I moved to Minnesota and helped me sell that home when i moved away. I highly recommend her. She works hard, knows the local market well and is always available.

                      - David G, Eden Prairie, MN
                    • Cindy provides a superior level of service to all her clients! We were extremely picky about looking at houses. Cindy showed us over 40 hours and we were successful with the perfect home!!!!

                      - S. F. , Chanhassen, MN
                    • My husband and I utilized Cindy as our realtor to purchase our first home. We met her on January 1st and we had an offer accepted on a house by January 20th. Cindy was very professional, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful in the whole process. We felt like we were in great hands! Cindy's quick responses and willingness to go the extra mile made us feel incredibly comfortable and that Cindy was on our team. Highly recommend Welcome Home Team for your real estate needs.

                      - Caitlin R, Eden Prairie, MN
                    • The JCT Group was a joy to work with. Cindy's expertise and marketing savvy were exactly what we needed to sell our home quickly and for top dollar. We were the highest priced on the street. I was extremely impressed with their attention to detail, constant updates and willingness to go above and beyond to ensure the best selling experience possible. I will be referring them to my friends and family throughout the Minneapolis area, but especially the Eden Prairie, Chanhassen and Minnetonka areas. Their knowledge and leverage in these areas is unsurpassed! Thanks Cindy!

                      - Anna H., Minnetonka, MN
                    • Cindy and her team were truly exceptional. We were not only selling our first home, but we were doing it from out of state. They perfectly guided us through the process step by step, greatly reducing our stress levels! Cindy explained the benefits of pricing it right and we had an offer in less than a week! If I ever need to move again, I'll call Cindy.

                      - Stewart, Minnetonka, MN
                    • Outstanding Experience! This is the second time we have worked with Cindy and we would never work with anyone else. She was exceptional! She was knowledgeable of the market and found a home that was exactly what we were looking for our daughter. She made it a fun process! We would definitely recommend Cindy!

                      - Kent and Karen M, Eden Prairie, MN
                    • Getting the Job Done. Thanks to Cindy and her assistant Ali for getting the job done for Georgette and I regarding our recent townhouse sale. Have used Cindy in the past and she is knowledgeable, credible, professional and fun to work with. Cindy and her team did what they said they could do and that is to bring in serious buyers and get it Sold! Well done and thank you.

                      - S.F., Eden Prairie/Chanhassen, MN
                    • We had an amazing experience with Cindy and team! They helped make the process of selling our previous home and buying our current home as smooth as possible. (2nd time in fact she has helped us) Cindy walked through our home to help prepare to list it and was sure to explain every step with us to make sure we understood all the moving parts. Sarah on her team had the patience of a saint walking through many houses with us until we found our dream home! We highly recommend the team to anyone and everyone!

                      - Jenny W. , Chanhassen/Mayer/Rosemount, MN
                    • Thank you Cindy. You did a great job selling my house. I know it wasn't easy but you got it done for me and I'm very happy with you. The photos made my home look so good and I really enjoyed watching the videos you made. I will definitely let anyone else I know needing to sell their house about you. Thank you so much.

                      - A. Schneider, Minnetonka, MN
                    • A true pro from staging to close. Negotiations with the buyer were tough but she fought for every dollar. Great Job!

                    • Cindy and her team did a phenomenal job selling our home! Cindy understood the market and challenges with our home. She kept us in constant communication and made things go smooth as silk! She is a true professional and represented our best interests at all times.

                      - Chris H. , Victoria, MN
                    • Seamless Sale. The process of selling my home with Cindy was very organized and straight-forward. She was responsive to questions and was available when needed.

                      - Jared D, Maple Grove, MN
                    • Enthusiastic, devoted to clients, provides excellent advice. Had 14 offers (4 cash) in first week of the listing. We sold for 9% over listed price. Wonderful team to work with, very well prepared and explained things during entire sale.

                      - P.D., St Louis Park, MN
                    • With the crazy times the real estate market has went through over the years, I'm sure our story would pale in comparison to others. No matter how stressful the sale process became, Cindy was there to calm our nerves and concentrate on what we wanted to do, what was best for us. We used the team for both the sale of our house and purchase of our new home. They did a very good job. Gave us sound advice and got both deals done.

                      - Steven W., Eden Prairie, MN
                    • We listed our home in spring with Cindy knowing the busy road in the back would be a challenge as we had our home on the market with another team prior without a single offer. Cindy gave us creative ideas from the start and teamed with an interior designer/stager to make our home shine to the point where the road was not an issue - we sold in 5 weeks. Her great attitude, strong marketing approach and talented team made all the difference. We look forward to working with her and the team on our next home.

                      - John and Marie D., Chanhassen, MN
                    • I can not say enough good things about the Welu Home Team. They successfully helped to sell our home with a very smooth process throughout and we've since recommended them to many friends who have also had success with them. I don't think there is anyone who knows the southwest metro better! The entire team is trustworthy, ethical and always take your call - we always felt like we were their only client.

                      - Bryn S., Eden Prairie, MN
                    • I was looking for realtors with experience selling contemporary modern homes in the Eden Prairie area. They came prepared with info on the house, the market and ranges of pricing options. They were very credible and knew the local market very well. Overall I'd say the Welu Home Team exceeded my expectations - I will definitely use them again and recommend them to everyone. I really like the team, the team style - they're fast, clean and very thorough in their process. We sold for higher than we were expecting and saw our home all over the internet. I was impressed.

                      - Matt M., Eden Prairie, MN
                    • I highly recommend Cindy to anybody who wants to sell their house. She was thorough, diligent and responsive while I was selling my house through her. As she was very knowledgeable and knew the market. It was nice working with her.

                      - B. Shaw, Eden Prairie
