I have never worked with an agent who was more thoughtful and concerned with my interests above all else. She was incredibly patient as I looked at home after after home, for almost a year, waiting on the perfect property. When we finally found my dream property her tenacity and professionalism combined to get me a deal I never thought possible. Cindy is truly first class.

I’ve had the great pleasure of working with Cindy as both a buyer and seller. First of all, I have never met anyone more passionate and dedicated to doing a fantastic, thorough, professional job, all while keeping a great sense of humor and staying perfectly lovely and graceful under fire. She is always going the extra mile- I honestly don’t know if she sleeps. But enough of the gushing, the bottom line is that Cindy pulled off what I consider my own little miracle- I was caught in a bidding war with 3 other offers, 2 of them cash (neither of them mine!). I couldn’t go higher and was tapping out when Cindy pulled out her secret weapon- something she uses as a genius negotiation in just such cases…..I would tell you what it is, but then she’d have to kill me. Suffice it to say, I am happily living in my dream house after Cindy’s bargaining prowess won the day and the bidding war! She was equally fantastic representing me as a seller. I feel so thankful to have had her at the helm, and I think this is where her years of expertise really pay off, because she is able to take what could be a very stressful time, and make the millions of little things that can go wrong, go right…. and all without batting an eyelash. She is worth her weight in gold as a professional and a friend.

My husband and I worked with Cindy while relocating from Colorado. She was very knowledgeable about all the different neighborhoods and schools and was able to help us find the perfect location for our family. It was great to have someone we trusted overseeing the process since we were not able to be here in California the whole time. We would definitely recommend Cindy to friends and family!

Cindy Ambuehl is the *only* realtor I would have working for me in the luxury real estate market. I have done (4) separate transactions with Cindy representing my family in the past 7 years. Her knowledge of the market is unparalleled — she knows every desirable corner of 310. I’m in awe of her organization and attention to detail. When it’s time for negotiation her breadth of knowledge shines as she draws on decades of experience. The team surrounding her is world class and benefits from her very high standards in every part of the process. I doubt it’s possible to find a more professional and authentic person to understand your needs and represent your unique priorities and interests in this market.
Cindy and Christina were an absolute dream to work with, they actually made this process enjoyable for me. I never doubted their knowledge and their commitment to finding me the best home for the best deal. They provided invaluable incite into things I wouldn’t otherwise know to ask about, and they were always available for me day and night. I will no doubt work with them again if I ever need to find a new home and will be recommending them to everyone I know that’s on the market for a house. In a business that can be slightly hard to navigate, it’s definitely rare to find people like Cindy and Christina.
Working with Cindy is a dream! Always upbeat and able to find what I’m looking for, even if it’s not on the MLS. She’s always available and moves at lightening speed….while managing to still not miss a single detail. I’ve got an agent for life!

You could not find a better realtor in all of Los Angeles than Cindy Ambuehl. She is a dream to work with. She is dedicated, knowledgable, thoughtful, and patient -but strong. And nobody could have worked harder to find me the perfect new house and sell my previous property. I would recommend her and her team to anyone and everyone in a heartbeat!!!
– Rosellen Gellar
We absolutely loved working with Cindy Ambuehl on the purchase of our home. Cindy was patient until we found the perfect home and then gracefully navigated a competitive situation to secure our new house. She is a true strategist who understands the nuances of the market and commands the respect of her peers. She and her team were a true joy to work with!
– Sam and Emily Rogoway
I had the pleasure and privilege of working with Cindy in both the sale of my home in the Palisades and the purchase of my new home. She is quintessentially professional as well as wonderfully personal. I can’t think of a better person to navigate through what can be an exciting but stressful time.”
– Donna Engstrom
Within seconds of meeting Cindy Ambuehl, over two years ago, I knew we would work together. I had been through probably 50 to 60 open houses and, well, I made it a point to avoid the brokers. Needless to say, she changed my thinking and I knew within seconds that not only would she sell my house for top dollar, I knew she would find me the perfect house. Which she did. Cindy doesn’t just have her finger on the pulse, she has all ten digits! She didn’t waste my time having dozens of people traipsing through my long time home, she brought me a serious buyer, and the deal was done. She knew what I expected and needed and she brought me that, and only that. When it was time to start looking for a new home, her incredible knowledge of the area, her connections with other brokers and her insight into what I wanted and needed, as well as her sincere caring about getting me those things led me to the perfect house. She knows everyone and everything and she got me entry before houses even hit the market – which is quite the feat & necessary in the increasingly hot market of the Westside. When it was time to write the offer, she knew exactly how to beat the multiple offers that would be competing with mine, all while working within my budget and other numerous constraints. She held my hand all though inspections and her advice was invaluable and always right on the money! She got me things I didn’t even think of. Cindy and her team were with me every step of the way, their professionalism, knowledge, integrity and always putting the client first makes it easy to give her my highest recommendation.”
– Karen Peter Cane
Cindy did an remarkable job for my family. She found us two properties that were completely hidden gems. She really listened to what we wanted and ran with it. Cindy literally spent a day at building and safety so that she can confirm some of the attributes of the property were correct so we would not get stuck with issues in the future. I have purchased several homes in my life and have never encountered a realtor who tends to her clients needs with such passion. Thank You for everything. We can’t wait to move into our new home!”
– Ron & Inbal Gonen
Cindy is a wonderful real estate agent whom I highly recommend. She sold my house within a month of listing it for over the asking price and was able to successfully negotiate on my behalf to lower my cost for repairs. She was always there to answer my questions and calm my nerves during the process of selling my home. She made what can be a difficult process very easy and her staff is top notch.”
– Jonathan Elias
In life, to be exceptional, one needs to be passionately committed to what they are doing. Cindy is that and more. Her performance and results far exceeded our expectations. Cindy has that perfect balance of market knowledge and professionalism while maintaining the highest standards of integrity. These qualities are only outmatched by her heart. It was a privilege to work with Cindy and we highly recommend her!”
– Susan and Rick Neuheisel
As it is my practice to always acknowledge a job well done, I am writing this letter to formally commend Cindy for the way in which she handled the recent escrow transaction for the parties in one of my Dissolution of Marriage matters. I must say that I was so impressed by the courteous and effective way in which the escrow transaction was handled. The closing happened with a maximum of efficiency and a minimum of stress and strain under the circumstances. Her office has been nothing but cooperative and continually communicative. Cindy’s assistant, Keri Coughlan, was excellent and I would work with both of them again any time. Thank you again for your great work!”
– Elyse Margolin
After two years of working with several agents in searching for our next home, we crossed paths with Cindy Ambuehl during an open house in January, 2011. We engaged her as our realtor and quickly realized that she was by far the most effective and knowledgeable real estate professional we’d ever worked with. Cindy worked tirelessly to close a difficult deal that easily could have derailed on several occasions. We were impressed by her personal attention, tenacity, hard work, attention to detail and resourcefulness — all grounded on unwavering ethical standards. These qualities carried over the the sale of our home too, as Cindy’s marketing plan, presentation and strategy resulted in the sale of our home within three weeks after listing!”
– David and Samantha Martinez
As a developer of west side properties over many years, I’ve worked with a number of agents and Cindy Ambuehl is simply the best! She is hardest working, most efficient, and most dedicated of any agent I have ever worked with. Her professionalism, keen marketing, diligence and determination resulted in the sale of this house, while not compromising the price. Her communication and follow through is nothing short of amazing.”
– Andy Zeff
Cindy was more than instrumental in our finding our new home and getting us to a successful close under challenging circumstances. Throughout the process, Cindy was upfront, honest, sincere, level-headed and conducted herself with a high degree of integrity and professionalism. Her work ethic and attention to client service exceeded our expectations. We feel so fortunate to have had her support! Thank you Cindy!!”
– Miwako Ogawa
Cindy is truly the perfect broker. She is full tilt 24/7 and possesses all of the necessary tools to get the job done. Cindy knows the market very well on both sides of the sale. On the selling side she is a great marketer, strategist and closer. On the buying side she understands her clients needs and demands for their next acquisition. Most importantly Cindy doesn’t rest when the deal is closed, she shepherds the process until the keys are handed over, while keeping the emotions on both sides level. Bottom line, Cindy has genuine concern, she treats the deal like it is her own.”
– John Nogawski
After interviewing several agents to market our home, we felt most comfortable with Cindy. Her knowledge and experience were very evident in her professional manner. She and her staff continually kept us abreast of all activity, attended to every detail, and made the sale of our house smooth and successful. We would not hesitate to utilize her services again for any future transaction and highly recommend her to anyone looking for outstanding service.”
– T. Heart
Cindy was terrific. She was inexhaustible, and on top of things from pricing, negotiations with buyers, all the way to closing day. Her attention to detail was extraordinary and greatly appreciated. It was personal attention of the highest scale and, now that it’s all over, our relationship will continue as good friends.”
– Kim and Andres Drobny
Cindy is not only beautiful on the outside, she is beautiful on the inside, too. Working with her as my agent was pure pleasure.”
– Steve Ellis
After my experience with several other agents, working with Cindy was a breath of fresh air. Cindy doesn’t just talk the talk, she walks the walk. The ultimate professional, Cindy possesses the winning combination of experience, tenacity, and heart.”
– Colleen Schwartz
Cindy is a true professional in handling the entire process of selling a multi-million dollar property from beginning to end. She delivers what she promises, and more! Cindy was a delight to work with, and I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone who is serious about selling their property and getting the results that they desire.”
– Annie Jonsson
“While navigating the worst real estate market decline in Southern California in 30 years, Cindy sold my home for the highest price per square foot in the Palisades in the two year period since the market had fallen. She went beyond the call of duty, worked her magic, and my goals were achieved! When I once leased a property, she supervised all the work needed to update the home and find the right renter. I hardly lifted a finger. Cindy listens to my needs for a purchase or sale to be right. She never wastes my time with unnecessary property tours, and is always on target when a showing of my home is arranged. Her creativity, integrity and work ethic are unparalleled.”
– Maryl Georgi
Your communication and follow through is nothing short of amazing. As a process check you are doing exactly what you said you would do and more than I expected. I know you’re going to sell our home and in doing so are going to get a reference for life from me. You are at the top of your game and it’s a pleasure to work with you.”
– George Minardos
In today’s market, we were unsure where to price our house and how long it would take to sell. Cindy had our house on the market within 3 weeks. Her professionalism, keen marketing, diligence and hard work resulted in a quick sale, while not compromising the price of our home.”
– Sheryn Skoglund
I highly recommend Cindy Ambuehl and her team. My husband and I are extremely busy with our careers and children. Not only did Cindy take care of the purchase of a new property and sale of our existing property, everything was done at a level of professionalism that exceeded our expectations. Both transactions were completed in record time!”
– Dr. Manali Shendrikar
Real estate brokers help you buy or sell a home. Cindy Ambuel helps you with a life change. Buying and selling a house can be a very exciting but stressful time Cindy takes away all the stress so you can focus on the fun part. She sweats the small stuff so you don’t have to. I’ve done $5mm worth of transactions this year with Cindy and I couldn’t be happier with her and her team.”
– Matt Shaw
You are amazing. After all of this time searching and all the suffering my family has gone through, I never dreamed we could end up in a situation as ideal as the one we find ourselves in. Having you in charge of this next phase of our lives brings us great comfort. We’re not ones to count our chickens before they hatch, so regardless of where this goes, we will always be grateful to you for making this experience so pleasurable.”
