About Me

As a CENTURY 21 real estate professional, I am dedicated to providing you with the highest quality service possible. My personal knowledge of the local real estate market is combined with the power of the CENTURY 21 brand—the most recognized name in real estate today.

I am a Marine wife of 25 years. Our family has moved across this country and back. I have known both the sorrow of leaving friends and the excitement that comes with moving, the uncertainties of new schools and neighborhoods for my kids, the feeling of being overwhelmed with decisions that need to be made and the desire to fit into a new community. I strive to help others invest in their futures, to aid them in what may be the most important investment decision they may ever make.

Let me assist you in finding your dream home, in a neighborhood that is right for you, and in the price range you want. Or if you are interested in selling a property, I also have the expertise to help you get the fastest sale possible and at the best price.

I look forward to the opportunity of working for you!

Cindy is a true professional who knows the market and the ins and outs of real estate. She made herself available days, nights weekends, and provided much needed advice, information and support, surprisingly selling my home in 4 days of listing it. I’ve benefitted from Cindy’s business acumen in both the purchase and subsequent sale of my home, both which were as painless as possible, largely due to Cindy’s efforts and knowledge. I highly recommend her!

Cindy is reliable, knowledgeable, and communicates well. If we ever have to buy in the area again we’d use her once mo re. We used Cindy when we purchased the house and though she did a great job so we used her again when we needed to sell the house.

Cindy is the best at what she does. She's fair, honest, and upfront. She helped us when we bought our home and we didn't even consider working with another person when it came time to sell.

Cindy is simply the greatest. She answered all my phone calls and text immediately and trust me I had a lot of them. Cin dy is extremely knowledgeable and can handle an real estate transaction with ease. I have used Cindy as my realtor three times now and I hope she never retires! She has a way of making you feel like family and I know ours thinks of her as family. If anyone is looking for a realtor, Cindy would be my number one and only recommendation.

Cindy has helped us before in the purchase of our first home and recently sold that while helping us buy another home. I could call her anytime a day and get my questions answered, trust me I had a lot of them. She is by far the best agent we have ever had and will continue to work with her and recommend her to anyone who has real estate needs. She is kind, knowledgeable and makes you feel like you have known her forever.

My husband and I have used Cindy Ballard to both purchase and sell a home. She helped us purchase our first home, then s ell it a few years later. Cindy is very knowledgeable about both buy and selling homes. Cindy made sure we understood every paper or question that was put in front of us. She went above and beyond to make sure we understood what was happening and were in agreement before moving forward. She was always available for any questions, comments, or concerns we may have had. Cindy also made sure to keep us up to date every step of the way! I will continue to recommend her to anyone I can and will certainly use her in the future if the need arises!

Cindy did an excellent job.

Bob Donaldson
Cindy did a great job helping us find a rental when we moved from Japan to MD in 2018, and we knew she understood what w e were looking for in a home. Cindy helped us a great deal, as this was our first home purchase after renting for 28 years (military). Every bit of advice she provided proved accurate. Can't add many more adjectives to this list, Cindy rocks. Cindy made our entire house buying experience a manageable event, something I didn't anticipate.

Scott DeLorenzi, California MD
Cindy Ballard is the single most knowlegable, energetic and thorough real estate agent I have ever dealt with. This was a difficult sale since I was located on the other side of the country and working long hours, but Cindy made it easy. She not only had exceptional knowlege of the area and the market, but she single-handedly ran point on several major improvements I needed to make to get it ready for sale and had an excellent network of contractors at her fingertips. She kept me up to date and pinged me if I had missed an email etc. She is a consumate professional. I would definitey reccomend her as well as use her again myself.

Cindy pretty much held our hands through the sale. At preparation stage, she helped us prioritize the areas to improve. When we asked her if we could leave the basement as a storage area, she firmly said no. We now realize that by following her guidance, we created a beautiful living space with a nice view that added value to our house. It was as if Cindy knew our concerns before we even voiced them. Incredible communications---Cindy kept us updated on every element, even letting know when there was no update yet. Cindy always made us feel like we were her most important clients. Because of her warm personality, we had the feeling that all her clients probably felt the same way!

Rick and Maricel Keiter, Lexington Part
Cindy Ballard has outreached us and others in our neighborhood for years. Since we were going to sell our house at some point, we developed a relationship prior to the sale process. By helping to identify the strengths and weaknesses of our home, we were able to upgrade our house which resulted in a quick, two-day sale. And our house sold for well over the asking price!
Review by
Clay & Sue Myers, Leonardtown, MD
Cindy was an outstanding agent with knowledge in all aspects of the home sale process. Our house sold quickly for the p rice we were expecting. Cindy was the the agent who found our home five years earlier and I would definitely recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home

Steve Reilly, New York
Really helpful considering we were buying from the West coast. She really made us feel like we could trust her even thou gh we didn't meet in person until closing!

Derek & Ellie - California
It was a pleasure to work with Cindy. She was always responsive and attentive from beginning to end, and dealt with ext ra issues given that I don't live in the local and had a renter moving out while we were preparing it for market. Once on the market, she had multiple showings and offers within just a few days! Cindy made the process easy and rapidly delivered a sold house at our price expectations. Wonderful!
Review by
Matt Bohlin
She was our buyers agent previously and is an outstanding professional. We were incredibly happy with her when we purcha sed the home and were just as pleased when selling the home. Highly recommend Cindy and have referred her to friends and colleagues. Exceptional experience. Cindy and the team made everything easy for us and greatly reduced the stress of selling our home. We had an agreeable contract within just a few days of putting the house on the market. Cindy was also very helpful with closing, coordinating so that we could sign our documents early to enable us an easier transition and to enable us to make previously scheduled appointments on closing day.

Tim Beebe, California, MD
Cindy Ballard was great from the first time we spoke on the phone! Relocating to Southern Maryland from Michigan, Cindy was extremely helpful and very knowledgeable on the local area and quickly helped us narrow down our prospective communities. In preparing for our move from Michigan, she even took the time to do some video walk throughs on some of our prospective homes to ease our transition. I don’t have enough superlatives in describing what it’s like to work with Cindy, but rest assured you can’t go wrong!
Review by
The Amala Family, Hollywood, MD
I couldn’t have had a better agent than Cindy Ballard. She stuck with me through thick and thin - even through periods of desperation as the market ebbed and flowed. My house-hunting search took six years off-and-on so that I could find a home that I truly love here in Southern Maryland. Also managed to buy a house I use solely as a rental property in the middle of that search too! Cindy was supportive, patient, informative, and accessible. I highly recommend her!

Cindy was great to work with both professionally and personally. I would recommend Cindy again.

Miss Cindy made my first time home buying experience easy. I’ve heard horror stories from colleagues and friends, and even though most of the process was done from out of state, I have nothing but good things to say about working with her.

Patrick McCrary, Great Mills, MD
Cindy Ballard is an expert in Southern Maryland realty! She negotiated phenomenal terms for the sale of my condo, and ha ndled the majority of the coordination between the buyer's agent, the contractor I used for minor property repairs, and even my notoriously difficult HOA! Cindy made what would have otherwise turned out to be a very stressful process streamlined, understandable, and very pleasant!

Dianna Pearce, California
Cindy Ballard kept us informed throughout the process, had tremendous local knowledge, responded to any questions, conce rns and communications with us immediately and facilitated the smoothest home-buying and moving experience we have ever had.
Review by
Marla Ford, Leonardtow, MD
Cindy Ballard is an all around exceptional realtor. She is thorough, insightful, understanding and most of all personabl e. My wife and I had no experience going into purchasing our first home and Cindy was the perfect guide through every step of our journey! She worked with our lender to meet our specific needs, provided an outstanding home inspector and skillfully negotiated all of our requests with the previous owners. I would highly recommend her to anyone, she truly is the best around!
Review by
Kyle Ballard, Callaway
We couldn't speak more highly of Cindy's conduct while we worked with her. Throughout our search and purchase process, she addressed all questions and concerns we had in a very timely and respectful manner. She clearly had a great deal of knowledge about laws and regulations, and she had substantial experience from which to draw. We were confident she was looking out for our best interests during the entire process.

Cindy Ballard was extremely helpful throughout our home buying experience. She understood our needs as a military family new to the area. She was very knowledgeable of the local area and current real estate market.
Review by
Nick and Vanessa Price, California MD
Cindy Ballard was great! She was recommended to us from a friend, and we were very pleased with our overall experience. We were only in town for a few days and Cindy dropped everything to show us every house she could during that time. As first time home buyers, Cindy took the time to explain everything out for us and walk us through the process. We felt extremely valued as clients and can't recommend her enough. Thanks Cindy!

Hargrove Leonardtown,MD
Cindy was known to my husband and I prior to requesting her services as agent. She has an excellent reputation in our community which was important to us. During the contract period Cindy kept us informed of offers, what should be taken into consideration and what was less important with decisions we made. It was a pleasure with little stress, as we had moved from the area while the house was still on the market. In the end all went smoothly with settlement , inspections and contractors.

Cindy Ballard is very professional. She understood what we were looking for and found us the best match for our lifestyl e and budget. She is very organized and punctual! She is the best realtor that Southern Maryland has to offer!
Review by
Julie Jennings, Hollywood, MD
Her performance was always professional and made us feel very comfortable to ask any questions. Knowledgeable and skill ful realtor. She represented us thoroughly every step of the way. Made our experience a joy and kept us positive through the whole process. She had much information about the local area and listened to what was important to us in our search for a home. Cindy was always available for questions and played a significant role in us finding our home. She was patient with our requirements and was lock-step with us during our search. An outstanding agent!

Overall, a wonderful house purchasing experience with Cindy. She worked with me while I was still in Washington and coo rdinated an excellent viewing process while I was local on my house hunting trip. She made the experience painless, which is much appreciated.
Review by
Christine Felice, Hollywood
I had a great experience working with Cindy Ballard. I found her when I called about a listing I saw on Zillow that she was the agent for. I was very impressed with both her honesty and her responsiveness, even when I realized after seeing it that particular house was not going to work for me . After listening carefully to what I was looking for in terms of location, features and pricing, she got me set up to be notified via email when new listings became available, and was always happy to discuss them with me if one came up that interested me. I didn't look anywhere else, I never felt the need to. When the right house did come along, Cindy handled everything promptly and professionally, and with great enthusiasm, without being pushy. One of the most positive things for me was how responsive she was to all my communications. No matter how small the question or how silly I felt asking it, Cindy always got back to me right away, and if she didn't have the answer, she would get in contact with the person who did. It may seem like a small thing, but having someone who returns your phone calls and emails right away when you are making a major purchase like a house really reassures you that they are on top of things, they are paying attention to the details and that everything is going to be fine. I wish it wasn't such a rare attribute in the business world these days. Speaking of attention to detail, she was also very on top of things like making sure that inspections were done promptly and correctly, that any repairs were documented with receipts and not swept under the rug, and that paperwork was done completely and correctly the first time, not having to redo things during settlement because someone's name wasn't spelled correctly or something. It was the smoothest settlement experience I have ever had, and I have no doubt it was because Cindy had checked and confirmed and organized everything beforehand. I wish all settlements could be like that! I would definitely recommend her to anyone who was looking for a house in the area, and who wanted a responsive, professional and and positive person to work with. With her, it was never "no" or "we don't do that", it was always "how do we work this out?" and "who is the right person to check on this and make sure it's OK?" or "what can I do to help things along?" without ever being pushy or overbearing. I would absolutely send her to family if I had any buying real estate in the area. What else can I say? Far and away the most positive, smooth and least stressful real estate transaction I've ever had. Thank you Cindy!!

Hannah Bowton, St. Petersburg
Cindy was a fantastic agent. It was our first home and she was able to take our wish list and find us a house that met all of our wants and helped us negotiate a fair price. The majority of work we had to do buying this property was done remotely. She was quick to reply to texts and emails. She also took the time to explain things along the way that we didn't understand. Her local knowledge and experience can't be beat. She made the process as painless as possible and got us in a house we really like. I couldn't give Cindy a higher recommendation.

Cindy stood beside us every step of the home search and selling process. She took the time to understand our needs and g uide us in the right direction. She was professional and patient. I will highly recommend her and C21NM to other potential buyers/sellers.

My husband and I were unfamiliar with the area and going through the purchasing process from a distance. Cindy was able to be our eyes and ears at the house for inspections and etc. Cindy is awesome at what she does and we would highly recommend her to any friends or family that may be in the market or be moving into the area!

Cindy Ballard worked with me and my husband until we found a property that met all of our requirements. During this tim e, she was very patient and never tried to compromise our needs.

Maureen Lawson, Mechanicsville, MD
Cindy was more therapist than agent to me. We looked at tons of listings and she did not waver at the daunting task of finding our family the perfect home.
Review by
Courtney Davio, Hollywood, MD
Cindy as my buyers agent went above and beyond in helping Celia and I find a home. She always found time in her already packed schedule to meet us as soon as she could to look at any house we wanted. Cindy was very honest with us about all the houses telling us what was positive and negative about the home. Whenever we showed interest in a house she went above and beyond to get any information we needed or to set up extra visits. If you want an A+ realtor who is very down to earth go with Cindy Ballard.

Grant Ridgell Mechanicsville, MD
Ms. Cindy was wonderful! She took care of all of our needs in a timely fashion and was very easy to work with. I would r ecommend her to anyone and I would most definitely work with her anytime again. I'm so thankful she helped us with the purchase of our first home. She's the best!!

Cindy Ballard came highly recommended from a friend. Her performance throughout my entire process was flawless. She was able to negotiate a fair price for the house. She constantly kept me updated of the status. I would recommend her to both friends and family. Truly above and beyond.
Review by
John Bouquio, Hollywood, MD
Cindy Ballard was very attentive to the things I was looking for in a home but also extremely knowledgeable about the Br eton Bay area. She was quick to return any emails and/or messages. There was never any time that she did not respond quickly! Her attention to detail was great. Her appointments with me were always on time. Thorough, easy to work with, up beat personality, timely, accurate, attention to detail, caring, trustworthy, and dependable; what more could I ask for from an outstanding agent and person.!! I would recommend Cindy Ballard to any of my friends or relatives!

Review by
Renee Reining
We are absolutely pleased with everything that Ms. Ballard did in representing us during our home sale. She provided a very realistic market assessment (which was slightly above what we were expecting). I think that the quick results speak for themselves. You can't ask for much more from your agent than having a firm offer in under two weeks.
