    I cannot say enough about how impressed I am with Raquel and Cindy. I owned my home for 30 years and did not know a lot about the market value, and I was looking for an agent that would get my home sold fast. Raquel came to our first meeting so prepared with comparison properties and historical values of homes in the area. I was truly impressed with the work she had done prior to listing the property. She gave me a to-do list of things to update or fix that would add value to the home, and boy did it! I will recommend Raquel and Cindy to anyone selling their home. Raquel's expertise of the area got my home sold within 2 weeks! It was amazing to see other homes just sitting on the market but mine got a full price offer and I am confident it is because of the home being priced perfectly for the market. Raquel and Cindy were so helpful to me. I had never sold a house before and they never made me feel bad for asking questions or having concerns. They made the process actually enjoyable and so easy! ~ Tommy Gibbons, Smithton, IL
    Choosing Raquel and Cindy to sell our home was a no brained! They sold us that house and who better to sell it for us than them! We were moving over an hour away so traveling back and forth got hard but they made everything SO easy. We were in a hurry to sell as we bought another house and Raquel and Cindy helped us with the staging and any other ideas to get our house sold! They were always available for any questions or concerns we had and sold our home within a month! ~ Kali DeSherlia; New Athens, IL
    I would invite Raquel and Cindy to use me as a reference for any potential client. ~ Todd Keller - Shiloh, Illinois

    This was my first home buy so I really appreciated Raquels wealth of knowledge and experience.

    Raquel was extremely accessible and answered my questions and concerns in a timely manner. She helped me with some lighting tips for my walk in closet and laundry room.

    We had been looking for a new home for years but did not want to sell our house until we found the perfect place for us. While searching for our new home, we met many real estate agents at open houses. Raquel Vice was the agent that impressed us the most at the various open houses. She was always well prepared and answered our questions about the homes. When we found the place that we wanted to buy, we immediately asked Raquel if she would be the agent for our listing. Raquel made several visits to our home to discuss the listing price, staging ideas, and the selling process. We do not plan to move again in the near future, but when we do decide to move we will definitely ask Raquel to list our home. ~ Roger and Julie Harris
    From her initial presentation through the day of closing, Raquel did an excellent job! Promptly answered my calls and questions and always professional. ~ Rosie Sei, Manchester, MO
    It was a pleasure working with Raquel and Cindy on the sale of our home. They had great ideas to help our home sell faster and it worked. I would highly recommend Raquel and Cindy to my friends and neighbors looking to sell/buy a home. ~ Brett C of Smithton, IL
    Raquel and Cindy are a great team. I currently have another house they are helping my wife and I to sell. They listen, provide excellent feedback, and reduce the stressful moments with buying or selling a house. They truly are my go-to Century 21 team. I've provided their names to friends and co-workers and they too were very impressed. ~ Joe and Debbie Dructor, Smithton IL
