I Love my Family, I love the Chisago Lakes Area and I love Real Estate! I am the wife of an amazing man whom I have had the privilege of being married to for almost 27 years. We have 5 children and 8 grandchildren and have raised our family in this area for the last 26 years. I have been selling homes in the Chisago Lakes Area since 2003. During this time I have had the pleasure of working with a variety of different buyers and sellers. I love what I do, I love to help people and I love the Real Estate business. I have specific plans in place for both buyers and sellers to insure you receive the most efficient and effective service in the industry. For Sellers, I have systems in place that will aid in exposing your property to the broadest range of buyers, staging technique’s to help your home show in top form and an advanced marketing strategy to compete in today’s highly technological world. All this helps you get the most money for your home that the market will allow. For Buyers, I can offer you “up to the minute” listings via email or your smart phone, a thorough understanding of the purchase process and a dedication to finding you the home of your dreams in a timely manner. For all my clients I bring to the relationship: knowledge, dedication, thoroughness, honesty and integrity. Most of my business comes from former clients or referrals from clients who were very satisfied with the level of service they received from me. My goal is to help you reach yours and build a lasting friendship in the process. Please take a few moments to browse my website and don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions, big or small. God Bless!

Cindi Franer is a real estate agent in her first year with Lakes Country Realty. Cindi’s passion for real estate grew out of personal experience. As a result of multiple corporate moves, she experienced first-hand how confusing and frustrating buying and selling a home can be. Her passion is to make every real estate transaction, whether it’s your first house or your fifth, as smooth and transparent as possible. Her empathy for her clients, along with her extensive background in marketing and technology, will give you that edge you deserve. Cindi will: 1. Consult with you. She will make sure you have all the information you need to make a good decision at every step in the process. 2. Negotiate for you. She will help you get the best deal possible. 3. Handle all the details for you. She will ensure the many steps in the real estate process are handled properly for you. Cindi moved to Minnesota in 1991—the week before the Halloween Blizzard. And, despite that early experience with our unique weather, she has firmly embraced the people, culture, and nature in the area and can’t imagine living anywhere else.
