A little about me

and why I love real estate

Born and raised in Cincinnati Ohio, Cindy spent 35 years as a Certified Oncology Nurse at a busy hospital outpatient center before retiring from that career. During that time she was directly involved with the construction of her four previous homes and partnered with her husband Jim, a commercial broker, in the development of several office buildings in the Cincinnati area. After Cindy and Jim relocated to Cashiers as year round residents, she decided to embark upon a new career in real estate in the Highlands-Cashiers area. 

Community oriented, Cindy is active in her church’s women’s association and is a member of the Friends of Panthertown.  She and her husband are also supporters of The Hospice House Foundation of Western North Carolina. 

Cindy enjoys hiking, boating and water sports, and especially tandem bike riding with Jim around the country.  She looks forward to sharing her caring nature and attention to detail with every client.

“Angie was great! She was very responsive when we first inquired about a property. She answered all our questions and if she didn't know the answer, she found out. We are from out of state so even after the sale she has been very helpful and responsive to additional questions about post closing issues, such as cable, electricity, etc. I feel like we have a friend that we can trust to refer us to other good people who can help as well, when needed.”

Angie is great!

“I just closed my most recent purchase in Highlands, NC with Judy Michaud as my agent. I have used Judy over the past four years exclusively, and would not trust anyone else with my real estate needs. She has helped me purchase and sell real estate in Highlands. She knows the properties in Highlands inside and out. She worked tirelessly to identify properties that would meet my criteria. She was available to show properties to me at any time. I have never worked with an agent that works as hard as Judy. When I sold my home she represented me in the most professional way, bringing me top dollar for my home. She then found me my dream home and negotiated a fair price with the sellers. I have since bought two investment properties using Judy, and she negotiated a fair price on those properties as well. She continues to help me after the sale as I am renovating my most recent property, and she leads me in the right direction with contractor choices and ideas for the renovation for the home. I have and will continue to recommend Judy to anyone wanting to purchase or sell a home in Highlands.”

“My husband and I had very specific requests and Mitzi was not only incredibly patient by showing us numerous houses, she also conducted "behind the scenes" research to see if the online property description actually met our needs. Her efforts saved us so much time during our quick weekend house-hunting trips to Highlands. There was never a doubt that she had our best interest at heart, and she helped us find an amazing rental property for our investment portfolio. Over the years, we have purchased numerous homes, both primary and investment, and Mitzi is the most caring, professional and honest agent we have ever worked with.”
