Sold a single family home in 2017 in Freeburg, IL.

Cindy and Raquel did a fantastic job selling our home. They are very professional and were always available to answer questions or to complete whatever task was necessary. They were honest and sincere and I’m sure that came across to potential buyers. They seem to truly enjoy their work which made them fun to work with. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

09/02/2017- Sam Felten

Bought a Single Family home in 2017 in Cahokia, IL.

I was drawn to Cindy Veliz because of her experience and her giving me a continual offer of homes that were available in the area we were interested. She was very attentive to our needs, though we lived 700 miles away. I was very appreciative of her availability and excellent communication skills. Cindy Veliz was a delight to work with and I feel like she became a friend through the whole process. Even though Cindy listed the home we bought, she was very fair and understanding. I would heartily recommend her to anyone. New and experienced agents could learn a lot from Cindy Veliz.

Sam and Linda it was a pleasure working with you! Thank you!! -Cindy

Cindy made purchasing a home in Southern Illinois while living in Chicago much easier than I thought it would be. She was happy to set up multiple viewings on weekends so that I could travel down and house hunt without needing to take time off of work. Her expertise in negotiation ultimately  allowed me to get the house I wanted for less than I was willing to pay for it.

Barb, It’s been a year already! Happy Anniversary and we wish you many more years of enjoyment in your beautiful home. Cindy and Raquel

In 2012 we used the Raquel\Vice team for a complicated home purchase. They were able to negotiate around the red tape of purchasing a HUD foreclosure with a VA loan. We were so happy with them, that we used them again when it came time to resale the same home (March 2016) due to a military move. It  went under contract the second day on the market!! They helped ease us through buying and selling a home at the same time, as we moved across the country… Making the process as painless as possible.

My husband and I have now used The Veliz-Vice Team to both buy a new home and sell our first home. We feel very lucky to have found Cindy & Raquel the first time, and we had no question who we wanted to use again in selling our home. Both Cindy & Raquel made the process extremely comfortable and easy. They were available to us every step of the way with expert advice and experience that we could rely on. We would highly recommend them to anyone interested in buying or selling!

Cindy Veliz & Raquel Vice is the real estate team we came upon in our search to downsize houses. They are both delightful people to work with because they are very knowledgeable and understanding. Our decision to build a house in Waterloo, IL has been a wonderful experience, and mostly because  Cindy and Raquel have helped every step along the way. Where there have been concerns or issues with understanding on our part they have patiently helped us out of our conundrum. They have always been prompt with circling back to us when we had to leave a message, and are quick to get the information if they do not immediately know the answer. One could not ask for better customer service, anywhere. Don and Gail Bradford

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $175K in Fairview Heights, IL

Cindy and Raquel were in one word excellent. They met with us several months before we decided to list and gave us a lot of information to think over before we did. When we finally did list they came in with a ton of ideas of how to get our house not just on the market but to get it to sell, they even offered up a “lucky” lock box for that little extra insurance. It all paid off as we had an offer on the table within three days. They know their stuff and are responsive to any questions that you might have.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $200K in Belleville, IL.

Cindy and Raquel made all my first time home selling fears melt away. I had to move to a different state before the process was complete, and this very accommodating mother-daughter team were willing to go the extra mile when anything popped up that I couldn’t physically be there to handle. They helped me set the selling price perfectly and my house sold at the second showing with the complete process taking less than 2 months! I am in awe of all we accomplished together in such a short time! If you’re looking for the best, then look no farther than this delightful duo 😉

08/30/2015

We had been looking for a new home for years but did not want to sell our house until we found the perfect place for us. While searching for our new home, we met many real estate agents at open houses. Raquel Vice was the agent that impressed us the most at the various open houses. She was always well prepared and answered our questions about the homes.

When we found the place that we wanted to buy, we immediately asked Raquel if she would be the agent for our listing. Raquel made several visits to our home to discuss the listing price, staging ideas, and the selling process.

We do not plan to move again in the near future, but when we do decide to move we will definitely ask Raquel to list our home.

From her initial presentation through the day of closing, Raquel did an excellent job! Promptly answered my calls and questions and always professional.

It was a pleasure working with Raquel and Cindy on the sale of our home. They had great ideas to help our home sell faster and it worked. I would highly recommend Raquel and Cindy to my friends and neighbors looking to sell/buy a home.

Raquel and Cindy are a great team. I currently have another house they are helping my wife and I to sell. They listen, provide excellent feedback, and reduce the stressful moments with buying or selling a house. They truly are my go-to Century 21 team. I’ve provided their names to friends and co-workers and they too were very impressed.

Cindy and Raquel are exceptional realtors and a joy to work with. They helped stage our home and gave excellent advice on changes that needed to be made in order to appeal to buyers. They are very knowledgeable of the housing market, returned phone calls immediately, and helped us with every step along the way. I had them for the sale of my house and the purchase of my new home and couldn’t be happier. I would recommend them to anyone that is ready to buy/sell a home.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in O Fallon, IL.

The Veliz-Vice Team at Century 21 was the first realtor that finally sold my property after going through several realtors. They were very professional, kept us informed at all times, very prompt in returning my emails or phone calls, most importantly, they cared about our wants and needs. They will sure get your “for sale” property to “sold” in almost no time. They are your realtor of choice if you want professionalism, prompt response, and your property to sell fast.

Very pleasant to work with, and kept my best interests at heart. Never felt pushed and I looked for over a year, so very patient! Truly honest and never felt like she would let me get in over my head. Met often and looked at many different homes and she never seemed to mind and had a very workable schedule. Very helpful and explained everything I didn’t know with being a first time home buyer. Always open to answering all my questions as well.

Cindy Veliz was there for us and extremely helpful from the our first phone call. She made herself available when we needed her. She was very knowledgeable. Any questions that she was unable to answer, she was able to find the correct answer almost immediately. We were extremely pleased with Cindy and the Veliz Team.

A friend recommended several realtors and after speaking with each of them … I picked Cindy. She did not disappoint. She is warm and professional and quickly impressed me with her knowledge of the housing market. Her years of experience speak for itself. As a first time home buyer, she certainly helped relieve a lot of my anxiety.Thanks Veliz-Vice Team for exceeding my expectations and making my first time home buying experience a very pleasurable one – from beginning to end.

Bought a Single Family home in 2003 in Columbia, IL.
We went through several local Realtors over a 4 month period. Most of the homes we looked at fell short of at least 3 of the 5 criterion we had for a home. It was as if they were only interested in showing us their listings or “easy listings”.We met Raquel on a Wednesday, and by Saturday she had walked us through 5 homes; all of which fell into at least 4 of the 5 criterion. The 5th home matched all our prerequisites and the price was fair.She listened, didn’t waste our time, and went out of her way to make us feel important. Heck, she even had a welcome basket here when we arrived to move in.A+ and I’d recommend to anyone.

This mother and daughter team is fantastic! They each go out of their way to help their clients. They were able to sell our home in less than 2 months and at a good price. Raquel was also the realtor that found our home for us several years ago. She listened to everything we were interested in and never made us feel that she was in a hurry. Having used them for both sides of a transaction, we find no flaws!

Raquel Vice of the Veliz-Vice team was wonderful to work with. She walked us through how to stage our house and gave us a lot of tips about making the house look presentable to sellers. She took great pictures and had our house advertised in every way possible. I truly believe that because I followed her advice on staging the house that it sold as fast as it did. It sold at a time and for a price that other people said it wouldn’t. It sold in exactly 4 weeks, we had 2 offers and we sold 15,000 over what the appraisers said it was worth!

Bought a home in 2013.

We dealt with both Cindy and Raquel during our home search and found both to be exceptional realtors! They were patient with us as we tried to sell our home in Benton, while at the same time looking at numerous houses in the O’Fallon area. They were honest with their advice and opinions regarding the homes we looked at, and when we found the right one, Cindy worked to negotiate a price we could live with. Even after we purchased the home, both Cindy and Raquel have followed up with us to see how things were going and to address any issues or problems we had. I’ve never seen another realtor go to that extent for their client before! I highly recommend the real estate team of Veliz-Vice to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

Every step was mapped out to our understanding. We would never use any other team. If Cindy goes into retirement we are gonna use Raquel!! I am truly Satisfied and We love our home!

“I would like to start by saying Cindy Veliz and Raquel Vice are Amazingly Awesome Realtors. I started the search process in mid June to find a home 75 miles from where I was in Pinckneyville, Il, wanting to move to Dupo! I found Veliz-Vice Team on the internet, sent Cindy an e-mail stating the above information; I was totally impressed and surprised to get an immediate response with “Welcome to Our Neighborhood” and a complete listing of all homes for sale in the area. The lists kept coming daily along with words of encouragement. I found the perfect house Signed, Sealed, & Delivered.”

“The Veliz-Vice Team were great. They helped us understand terms and agreements between us and the sellers. They helped us find an agreement with the sellers that was reasonable and easily understandable. At no point did they try to get us to agree to something without fully understanding what we were signing. They were professional, but also treated us like we were personal friends on a client basis. The Veliz-Vice Team were friendly and always helped us in any part of the buying transaction.”

“Raquel and Cindy are the nicest people to deal with after spending much of their time helping a hard to please man that I am…they showed me numerous places some of which I missed, because I was to slow on following-up on them. I would recommend them to anyone either purchasing or selling property. I am very pleased with the house they helped me to purchase.”

“Cindy Veliz and Raquel Vice are very professional and put an emphasis towards the clients concerns and needs, while maintaining realistic expectations on value and other market conditions. Although, we primarily, dealt with Cindy Veliz, there were times when I spoke with Raquel Vice and each time was a pleasure. She’s knowledgeable and extremely friendly and professional as she addressed our concerns and needs while selling our home. Each and every time I used Cindy Veliz she met and exceeded all my expectations during both the buying and selling process. Cindy was very professional and her suggestions were always seriously considered for her knowledge of different areas, values, and of what the buyer wanted was always dead-on! She was always easily accessible by phone or in person and would go out of her way to please the client and take care of all aspects involved with buying or selling. Cindy is a top-notch realtor who will always be there for you, in good markets or bad, and will keep your spirits high, while being very honest about market conditions and other variables during the process. I would gladly recommend her to anyone looking for a great Realtor!”

“People should know that they are not out for the sale, they are out to find you the home of your dreams. Cindy was not only a real estate agent, but a therapist. She walked through every step and phase of the home and buying experience with me and was always patient. She was always available when I needed her. Thanks again!”

“I would like to sincerely thank the Veliz-Vice Team for their help toward the purchase of our new home. Raquel and Cindy were there for us anytime that we needed them. These ladies went above and beyond the commitment of their job responsibility. Any questions that we had, they supplied answers. Anytime we called; they answered. I would recommend Raquel and Cindy to my family and friends.

“We had been looking for a new home for over a year, but were hesitant to sign with a realtor until we met Raquel Vice. Her sincere approach in helping us find the right home was invaluable. She was willing to work around our shift-work lifestyle. After carefully assessing our needs and wants, she helped us find a great new home. Her expert advice was especially helpful during the closing process and she went out of her way to fully explain every detail so there were no surprises. Some realtors only seem interested in selling a house, Raquel Vice wants to help her clients find a home.”

“I enjoyed working alone with Raquel Vice @ Century 21 Advantage in Columbia. Raquel was very honest about the market and what we were up against in selling our home! She was very professional and always had a smile on her face. She came in and suggested that we move certain items around in our home that would help out with a better sale. I would recommend Century 21 Advantage and “The Veliz-Vice Team” for any sale or purchase of your home. I am honored to have a team that takes pride in their work. Our home sold in 6 months and that is a blessing! Raquel & her team worked very hard to get our home sold, they were successful at what they did. Thanks, again Raquel, you did a good job!!”
