Cindy Roker, Realtor®
It is interesting how our paths cross throughout our life's journey. Everything happens for a reason and Cindy being in our lives is certainly proof of this. We have known Cindy for many years, well, actually since we moved to Florida back in 1995.
We remember when her oldest daughter was a baby! My how time flies! We go to the same church and Katerina was blessed to be her sons' Wolf Den leader in Cub Scouts.
Cindy is a native born Floridian. There are more residents of Florida who can not claim that title then those who do:). She was born in the Good Samaritan Hospital right in West Palm Beach and was blessed to be born into a family of nine children. She is the seventh child out of the nine. She has lived her life here in Florida. She knows Palm Beach County!
She is a great volunteer. She serves in our church in many different capacities. Our church has no paid positions. She served as a missionary. She has been a Sunday school teacher for all age levels from babies to adults. She has also been the President of the Primary which is the children's organization, the Relief Society which is the women's organization and Young Women which is the teenage girl organization. Right now she is serving as our Visiting Teaching leader and is a great example to all of her awesome service and love of others.
Cindy Roker has had many different occupations along her journey in life. She has been a hair stylist, a pre-school teacher with an AS degree in education, a certified nurse's assistant and our home's manager. Cindy never expected to end up choosing real estate as her career. It was Nestor who told her she would make a great agent. She was so meticulous in keeping our home taken care of, organizing everything, clearing out items during our remodeling and she is willing to help with everything. We were remodeling another room in our home to become a second office and when it came time to stain the crown molding the "perfect color" all I had to do was show Cindy how I created the right color of stain, how I applied it and off she went. She took over the job and the crown molding turned out perfect! Nestor knew that she had that caring attitude and love of serving that would make her a fantastic and successful buyer agent. So one day he challenged her to take the course and pass the test! She did!
Cindy loves to help buyers find their dream home. She's busy each and every day except Sundays with buyers. She says she did not realize how much fun real estate would be. This is because she really cares. She also has an innate gift of knowing which house is right for each of her buyers.
Cindy has been married to Bruce for 29 years. The most amazing role in the world for Cindy is that of being a mother. Cindy and Bruce's children have blessed their lives beyond measure.
Cindy and Bruce adopted 5 children. Three of these children are biological siblings. It is the cutest story ever and I just have to share it with you. They adopted Sarah. A couple of years later the adoption agency called them and told Cindy that the same mother that had Sarah was going to have another baby. Cindy had adopted three girls so she really wanted to have a boy. The agency said this baby was going to be a boy and Cindy was so excited she say YES, we will adopt the baby boy. The agency called to tell Cindy the mother was in labor at the hospital and to go to see her new baby boy. When she walked in everyone was so Cindy Rokersurprised because it was TWIN boys! Of course, Cindy and Bruce could not separate the twins so they went home with two baby boys.
Her greatest desire is to see her children grow to live happy, productive lives, always believing in themselves and especially in God's love for them. She has come to know that there is no sweeter love than God's love. She is a shining example to her children, to us and to everyone she comes in contact with that if you put God first you will be blessed beyond measure.
I am writing this letter as a testimony to the wonderful experience my family had with Katerina Gasset and the services he provided to me and my family during the whole process of buying and selling our home. He not only provided the obvious services needed, but went far and above his duties to counsel and guide us through the entire process, especially when times got tough.
As a family we had long desired to move into the Wellington area. My wife grew up in Delray Beach, but as a couple we had lived in Delray Beach since 2004. Our son was born in 2005 and we were blessed with a daughter in 2009. With my working in Wellington and my wife nearby, in addition to the far superior school district and overall positive family neighborhood structure, we have wanted to make the move to Wellington for quite some time. I had come to befriend Nestor through recreation baseball four years ago and he knew about our situation. We finally got around to summoning up the courage to start the process last August (2013).
So … with Nestor’s help, we began looking. Any purchase of a new home for us was going to be contingent on us selling our residence at the time, a 2/2 villa in Delray Beach. Nestor knew the challenges that lay ahead in selling our place because it was situated in a unique area without many comparisons and there had been some foreclosures, making the final asking price a challenge to obtain. But with a direct marketing approach and word of mouth, we had multiple showings every week for months. After some bumps in the road with multiple potential buyers and some stressful months, Nestor was able to get two cash buyers competing to buy our place and was able secure a deal.
On the flipside, the home we were contracted to purchase in Wellington was not a walk in the park either. The previous owners agreed to have us under contract contingent on us selling our place. They waited for us to do so for a long time (we were under contract from September to January). Nestor’s hard work and due diligence kept these people from deciding not to void the contract.
Even when there were bumps in the road with some buyers falling through the cracks, Nestor was there to encourage us and lift our heads up, and for that we will be forever grateful.
Even in the short time we have lived here in Wellington (two months), it has turned out to be everything we had dreamed it would be; great schools, great families, great recreation and activities, great location close to work, great house and everything else we thought it would be.
And, to be honest, we owe that all to Nestor. I can’t imagine anyone working harder than he did for us and now my family will be the beneficiaries of that hard work, persistence and dedication.
Words cannot express the gratitude our family has for the service you provided in helping us find our dream home. As you know over the past 2.5 years we have tried several times to purchase a home. During this time and in every instance you went way above and beyond in helping us. If we were you we probably would have given up or walked away from us. But you never abandoned us and we always received exceptional service. You made us feel like we were your only client and the personal attention was unparalleled. You even tended to our youngest child when he fell and busted his lip while looking at houses. Never forget that day!
You knowledge of the Wellington market is unprecedented. Every time we looked at a property you were quick to give us the pros and cons of the location, even if it was not what we wanted to hear. When we finally signed our contract you made the process seamless and it was the smoothest real estate transaction we have ever been involved with. Not only did you make a client for life, we are glad to call you our friend. We know without a doubt God sent you to help us find our dream home and if someone was to ask us to recommend a Realtor, hands down we would recommend you ten times over. Thank you for all your help and God Bless!
Nestor and Katerina, Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! On behalf of myself my wife Christy, and her parents Robert & Natalie Tutunjian, we cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work aud tireless efforts in selling our 2 condo’s in St. Andrews at The Polo Club.
Your Knowledge, Skill, Marketing Efforts, Professionalism, and most importantly your pit bull like tenacity I believe are the reasons for your success with selling these properties. In a profession where many are only looking for the easy sale and the Big Commission check, you both proved that you are not just in it for the money but that you truly care about your customers, and are not afraid of hard work to get a property sold. You both are a credit to your profession and I am sure you will continue to enjoy much success. YOU DESERVE IT!!
You have rescued us from a very bad position in what may be the worst real estate market since the Great Depression and we will forever be grateful.
I promise, if I ever hear of somebody in the market to buy or sell property in south Florida they will be getting your twine and number. Keep up the Great Work!
Dear Nestor and Katerina,
I am writing this letter to express my complete satisfaction and gratitude for helping me short sale my property. I cannot thank you enough for helping me through my short sale process.
You guys have gone above and beyond what I had expected and have made me feel as if I was a dear friend and not another client. I am especially pleased with the professional service you and your staff provided me, it has been first class.
Your knowledge and timeliness has saved me time and money. I could not believe how quickly you worked to get my property sold. I am happy to recommend International Properties and Investments to any that ask, confident that they will experience the same satisfaction in service that I have.
To Nestor, Katerina and Staff -- I want you all to know how grateful and thrilled I am with the results of doing business together.
Your knowledge and professionalism were way beyond my expectations. I was especially impressed with the comprehensive workup of my property; the attention paid to the entire locale with features, benefits and creating a niche that makes a prospective buyer want to step into! The marketing was spectacular.
Thanks again for every day, every phone call and the best ending to the project. I will be spreading the word.
Dear Katerina and Nestor,
My husband and I want to express our deepest gratitude in bringing the sale of our condo to a close... Even though your commission was small, you treated the listing the same as one of your million dollar listings and put as much effort into selling the property. I would highly recommend your services to anyone trying to sell a property in this very difficult market. You both are also pleasant to talk to and have returned phone calls and answered all of our questions promptly. You truly are professionals to the highest degree. We will both be sleeping better at night now... Thank you again.
