To whom it may concern,

Cynthia Makris is marvelous. I am beyond grateful for the person she is, her professionalism and personal attention. She was always available for questions and/or concerns and made me feel as if I was her only client. Every step in finding my home was done efficiently and quickly. I highly recommend Cynthia for your next real estate transaction.

If you are selling a home in Florida, I can recommend Cynthia.
When I contacted her and asked her to negotiate the sale of my house, she came to the property as agreed and was very well acquainted with transactions made in the area and their selling prices.
Her estimate of my home’s value was higher than that of other brokers and corresponded with my view of the price level. We put the house up for sale, and within a couple of weeks, we had a contract at the full asking price.

In addition, Cynthia helped with the house inspection and many other things.   She was a great help in matters relating to the FIRPTA tax refund application.
I did not personally have to go to the closing, and the money arrived in my account in Finland three days after the transaction.

I recommend getting the advice of a qualified agent already when you are buying a property, if you are thinking of selling it in the future.
I wish that I had contacted Cynthia before I bought my home, so that I would already have been much wiser during the ownership period.

I am writing to express my complete satisfaction with Cynthia Makris as a Realtor. Cynthia is the model of real estate professionalism. She is a likeable friendly person and is easy to work with. I would not hesitate to use her services in the future.

When we decided to sell our house I interviewed several Realtors before deciding to appoint Cynthia as our Listing Agent. Initially we were uncertain of the asking price, but Cynthia researched multiple sources to verify that our pricing was right. and met our goal of selling our house within a certain timeframe. Her marketing approach was very professional and aggressive. And within two weeks of listing the house, it sold for what we were expecting.

Cynthia Makris is a seasoned professional realtor and a pleasure to work with. She was very accessible, positive and knowledgeable. Throughout the entire process, Cynthia was conscientious and motivated. We had a great experience utilizing Cynthia for the sale of our house. I felt as though I was her only client!

I highly recommend Cynthia Makris to all potential buyers and sellers.

Recommendation / Cynthia Makris P.A.:

Cynthia Makris helped me to sell my mother’s condo in Palm Beach, Florida
the beginning of this year. She took care of everything quickly, flexibly and professionally.
I can wholeheartedly recommend her as a realtor and especially as someone
who can facilitate transactions between Finland and the United States.

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Cynthia.
She made our search for a new home easy and stress-free.
To be honest, my wife and I had different ideas about what we wanted.
Cynthia turned out to be just what we needed: a market savvy, skilled professional.
She guided us through a number of choices, pointed out the pros and cons of each and,
in the end, helped us find the perfect house. She was a joy to work with.
We would gladly recommend her to friends buying or selling a house.

I am writing to give Cynthia Makris my highest recommendation. I had the privilege of working with Cynthia as a realtor when looking to purchase a home in Boynton Beach/Lantana area. Cynthia possesses all the attributes necessary to be an excellent broker; she knows her market extremely well, she is diligent, responsive and yet very patient with her clients, she has a tremendous grasp of the market and possesses that intuitive feeling as to what house is really worth and how will it will sell.

Cynthia is both very professional and personable. She clearly takes pride in doing a good job, her knowledge about real estate is multi-faceted and she is most certainly able to do more than the average agent.

Thank you so much for all your help!

Dear Cynthia,

Let me begin by thanking you wholeheartedly for all your help, your guidance, your shoulder and your personal attention to my daughter’s first time home buying experience.

You were extremely helpful, knowledgeable, extremely professional, personable, approachable and friendly.  Most importantly, you understood, were extremely patient and so compassionate with making sure she got the best she could get and put her mind at ease.

You made the whole experience easier and you made it happen.  Using your contacts, putting in all those hours, viewing all those homes but all the while understanding and with a clear picture of what it was that she was looking for and you helped her find it.  You were the key component in getting her in touch with a different mortgage lender who happened to be amazing and extremely efficient and fast.

I appreciate everything you did for her.  Thank you just doesn’t seem to express my gratitude.

We used Ms Cynthia Makris as our realtor in searching for a new winter home in the West Palm Beach County Area. We were very fortunate to have Ms. Makris as our expert.  She searched out and proposed suitable properties from the requested area.
Ms Makris sent all the information to us in Finland including excellent photos of suitable apartments. Finally she found us an excellently located condo which was also in very good condition. We trusted her experience fully in all issues so much so that we were confident to make the decisions in Finland without seeing the apartments on site. Ms Makris and her team also very precisely told us which documents we would have to get in Finland in order to be approved by the local rules and laws. The cooperation with Ms Makris was very confidential and honest. The buying process of the apartment in the USA is very complicated, and Ms Makris professionally dealt with all of the phases of the process.
Her personality is very kind and cooperative, and we warmly want to recommend her for finding new homes for any customers.

Yours Sincerely

Erkki and Ulla T.


A most wonderful and professional lady indeed, speaking several languages fluently, which is a big plus when many buyers are often from Europe. We felt it made these viewers at ease, and that Cynthia was indeed a trusted, true to her word realtor. Very easy and fun to work with. Communicates effectively with prospective buyers in a knowledgable manner, having studied every aspect of our home. A great time keeper, follows through on any tasks required, and dresses sharply, indicating she means business. Thanks Cynthia for all your help and guidance at every point in the marketing and sale of our home.

Cynthia was great to work with. She was highly professional and flexible,
as well as friendly and responsive.
We chose her based on her proactive marketing tactics. She helped us get our home listed quickly, and we were happy to be able to price it at the high end of the market valuation process.
We received 6 offers on the first day it was listed, a couple of which were sight unseen,
based only on the great listing that presented our home very nicely.
We would highly recommend Cynthia as your realtor!

To whom it may concern:

We had a great experience working with Cynthia. She was very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional.
When we first met, she came to our home with statistics and the latest sales data to help us price point our home.
We received an offer only two (2) days after listing it with her.
While we were in the process of moving out of town, Cynthia handled everything to help minimize our stress.
We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor in the Palm Beach County area.

Prior to working with Cynthia, I had 5 realtors.
I was looking for my first home for over a year and a half, switching from agent to agent.
Cynthia was different from the rest. She always had my best interests at heart,
listened to my needs, and wanted me to find my first home.
Within a month, I found it and I closed yesterday. I couldn’t ask for anyone else to do the job!

I have had the pleasure of having Cynthia as my realtor for almost a year now.
She helped us to find two condos for rental purposes and I can honestly say,she has exceeded my expectations on so many levels.
Living outside America, it is extremely important to work with a realtor , who is completely trustworthy and willing to work hard for you.
I can warmly recommend her services!

I was extremely satisfied with the service I received from Cynthia Makris in buying a home for my wife and myself and in finding a renter for our investment apartment.
Cynthia’s engagement in solving the many practical issues following the home sale and rental, things which normally are no longer a realtor’s job, helped me tremendously.
I can only conclude that you can not take better care of matters than Cynthia did for me.

I can wholeheartedly recommend Cynthia Makris if you are buying a house or condo in Florida.

We found our dream home in only two days in Half Moon Bay, Hypoluxo, FL. All the details concerning the deal were done in only five days e.g. paperwork,
home inspection service by Florida Inspections, Inc, bid/ask, community approval procedures etc. We spent only one week in FL and the closing of the contract was made by email next week
when we already had returned back to Finland. So easy!

Re/Max Direct, Boynton Beach team Juha Hyvarinen and Cynthia Makris made this all possible.
Their expert, professional, dedicated and kind service was superior. Co-operation with them was easygoing. It was also very important that we could get service in our own language.
We can warmly recommend You the awesome service of Juha Hyvarinen and Cynthia Makris of the Re/Max Direct Team to make Your dream come true!
