Both Cynthia and Kara were exceptional in every area during the selling process. They were knowledgeable and professional giving appropriate wisdom when requested. Even in the midst of uncertainty during the process, clear and transparent communication was quick and on point. We will not hesitate to recommend Cynthia and Kara to our friends and colleagues in the event that a REALTOR® is needed in their service area.

Kara and Cynthia were great to work with! This was my first home purchase and I wasn’t sure what to expect but they were always there to answer questions and kept me updated on the process. Would recommend them to anyone wanting to purchase or sell their home.

The Hostetler Team does not disappoint! The level of professionalism and prompt service offered by Cynthia and Kara is very impressive. During our showings, and through the whole buying process, it was obvious how enthusiastic and devoted they are for their customers, and these showings were always done promptly to the point that it almost seemed that they cleared their schedules just for me! Rely on the market knowledge this team has for your next purchase or sale; you’ll be glad you did!

After meeting with a couple of real estate agents we picked Cynthia as our agent of choice. For several reasons… For her expertise in the local real estate market. For her assessment of what the property should be priced at (she was the middle price agent). The houses she compared ours to were the closest to the house we were selling versus the other agents. Compared to the other agents, her advice made the most sense. Cynthia was very available to keep us up-to-date, to answer questions, and help us in any way she could. Years ago I sold a house, and Cynthia was one of the REALTORS® who appraised it. We are very happy with our choice of REALTORS®. Cynthia and Kara did a great job.
