With top rated schools and 2 train lines for easy commuting, it's a great place to live. If you'd like to learn more about living here, just contact me.
VIDEO HOUSE TOUR
Here is a video I had done for one of my listings. This client was one of my Paint Diva clients as well as a Real Estate client. I worked with them for several years, and then a year before the house went on the market we began preparing it for sale. By painting and staging the house, and by my marketing it with gorgeous photos and video, it sold for the highest price in the neighborhood.
HOW TO PREPARE YOUR HOUSE TO GO ON THE MARKET.
I have worked in the design field for over twenty years, and have been doing paint color consults and staging consults for ten years, in addition to being a real estate agent. I also have done seminars on how to prepare your house to go on the market.
In this video I share my tips and knowledge with potential sellers to help them sell their homes quicker and for more money.

Since the majority of her work has been working with new home buyers and potential sellers, the next logical step in her career was becoming a licensed Real Estate Agent.
Cindy brings her creativity, high energy, marketing and people skills into the Real Estate arena.
Her specialty is working with sellers preparing their homes to go on the market. She has chosen paint colors for thousands of homeowners, and has been in hundreds of homes. She has an advantage working in a paint store because she talks to so many people and knows what they like, and what they don't like. She works with so many home buyers, helping them choose colors and decorating their homes, that she knows how to help sellers create a home that potential buyers want to buy.
Cindy has also helped thousands of homeowners navigate through building and remodeling projects that they have percieved as being extremeley stressful, and then she calmly puts their fears at ease. Cindy is a skilled negotiator and has built her design career mediating many "differences of opinion" between husbands and wives, mothers and teens, and contractors and homeowners. People put their complete trust in her when it comes to their homes. As an agent, she'll help you navigate through the buying and selling process as well.
Most people love to see good "before and afters" and are always looking for helpful ideas for their home. Cindy does a video blog allowing people to follow her to client's homes. Here is one episode where she staged a home with paint that was going on the market.

The Paint Diva
After twenty years of working in the Interior Design field painting murals and faux finishes, Cindy saw that faux finishes were going out of style and knew it was time to once again re-invent her career. After working for several high-end designers in New Jersey, she saw a niche that needed to be filled. The average middle class homeowner needed help with choosing paint colors and basic consultations in making design decisions for their homes. So she went to work at McGrath's Paint and Hardware, a Benjamin Moore dealer in New Providence. It's there that she meets her clients, and then goes to their homes to do paint, staging and design consults.She chooses paint colors for thousands of satisified customers and stages homes for sale, as well as helping people buy and sell homes.
"The Doctor Is In"
Cindy has since become the "go-to" person where people will not choose a color without going to her first! She is known for being extremeley intuitive, creative, and accurate. Everyone in Summit, Chatham, Berkeley Heights and New Providence knows who that "Paint Lady" is. She is truly a Benjamin Moore Color Expert and can see color in ways that most people can't. Even other Interior Designers come to her for help in choosing colors. Her customers have made up many nicknames for her, such as "The Paint Doctor", "The Paint Guru", "The Paint Whisperer" and the one she has kept and uses for her website, "The Paint Diva".
Almost every day she gets phone calls from people who need help with their "paint emergencies" and they come into the store shouting "Thank God you're here!". Choosing paint colors and buying or selling a house seem to be two of the most stressful situations that people go through. Cindy is quick and decisive, yet patient and amiable, so she is able to guide homeowners calmly and patiently, quickly putting their fears to rest. People always tell her "I can't believe you made this so easy", and laughingly have called their consultations "Paint Therapy." Helping home owners relax through the process, and helping them love their homes has become her passion. Homes are her business, and people are too.

Seminars and Staging
Cindy has done several seminars on how to choose paint colors. She is passionate about what she does! Her specialty is staging homes for sale, working with "Empty Nesters" to prepare their homes to go on the market. She uses the most popular paint colors to create homes that will appeal to new home buyers.
Her latest seminars were on "How To Choose Shades Of Gray" and "How to Prepare Your House To Go On the Market". She has recently put the seminar to video. If you're planning on selling your house in the next year or so. watch the video below.
Originally born in Harrisburg, PA, Cindy moved to New Providence as a child and has never left. She came from a musical family and grew up singing and dancing. She danced in the Nutcracker Ballet as a member of the New Jersey Dance Theater Guild and later taught ballet, tap and jazz. After graduating New Providence High School she worked at Martindale Hubble Inc. as an Associate Editor for Who's Who in America until she married and had her twins in 1985. She shifted her career focus and put her dance training to use and became a certified aerobics and fitness instructor, where she was able to take her children to work with her. She worked at New Woman Health Spa in Springfield, NJ and then The Connection For Women and Families in Summit, NJ for twenty years.
During those years, she began to develop an entrepreneurial spirit, and started painting clothes and murals for family and friends, and began selling her work first at the office and later at the health club. A true multi-tasker, while working at the health club, painting as a side business, teaching dance classes at night, running a Brownie Troop and raising three children, one of whom is Autistic, she put herself through college and eventually became an art teacher at Our Lady of Peace School.
She decided she enjoyed painting more than teaching however, so after having her fourth child, she ran her own business painting murals and faux finishes so she could make her own schedule. She worked for restaurants, businesses, home owners and Interior Designers throughout New Jersey. She also volunteered as a Sunday School Teacher, Cheerleading Coach, Brownie Leader, Worship Leader, and taught acting and painting to youth club kids.
In 2005 she hung up her brushes and went to work as the In-Store Designer and Color Consultant at McGrath's Paint and Hardware in New Providence. She is a Benjamin Moore Color Expert, Interior Designer and Stager known as "The Paint Diva". She has done several "How-To" videos and hosted her own cable TV show "A Taste For Design" (See pages and videos below.) and does seminars on how to choose paint colors.
In addition to selling Real Estate and staging homes, Cindy is very active with music and video. She has sung with several bands, recorded 2 CD's, Cindy has several YouTube channels and blogs, does videos on how to choose paint colors, and does a video blog about her son Robbie who has Severe Autism. She is an advocate for the Autism Community and has recently started a support group for parents of children with Special Needs. In her "spare time" Cindy enjoys going to Zumba classes, vising the Jersey Shore and traveling to Newport, RI to watch her son play football and walking on the cliff walk.
