I felt very lucky to have Cindy for my realtor! I would recommend Cindy Ryan and Craven and Company for anyone looking for real estate.

Ms. Dry was the listing and selling agent for our home in Asheford Green in Concord. I had listed the property with two previous agents and firms and was not pleased with their performance. I then called Ms. Dry whom I knew from my time in the Savings and Loan business in Concord. She promptly met with me, performed market analyses, and assisted me in listing with her firm.
During the time it took to sell the property she was in touch with me regularly with updates on the status of the property. In spite of the downturn in the housing market, her efforts in showing the property resulted in her finding an interested buyer, cultivating the mutual interest and finalizing a contract. Being an absentee owner, it was reassuring to me that a professional was handling the property. She made regular inspections and reported her findings to me.
Ms. Dry is a very professional agent whose strengths include excellent communications and people skills and a very keen knowledge of the real estate market in Cabarrus County. I wish I had listed the property with her from the beginning as I am sure the property would have sold much quicker.
I have no reservations in recommending her to any potential seller or buyer. Not only did I have a very satisfactory selling experience, I also made a friend.

Buying or selling a home is a major event in your life. Finding the right agent to assist you in the process can be difficult. It is important to find the right Realtor to fit your wants, needs, and expectations. We were fortunate to find Brenda Hodgens from Craven & Company Realtors®. If you are looking for a professional Realtor with an eye for detail, utmost professionalism, and with the knowledge of today’s housing economy, then you don’t need to look any further. We met with a few different local Realtors including a Realtor from a very large well known agency. Brenda, hands down, impressed us from the first moment we met her.
Brenda is native to the Concord area. The home we were selling was in Concord, so it meant a great deal to us to have a Realtor who has lived in the same area for many years who is familiar with the surroundings, types of homes, builders, and surrounding communities. Brenda was open with us about the struggles that people are facing in today’s real estate market. She worked with us on ways to improve our financial return on the real estate investment we originally purchased. We are delighted to say that we ended up receiving an offer on our home in about 2 weeks after Brenda listed it publicly. There are several homes in the community that have been on the market for well over 1 year. With Brenda’s guidance, we were able to close on the house in approximately 45 days. It was a smooth, seamless transaction with Brenda’s assistance. Without her exceptional knowledge base, precision in details, and timely manner, the transaction would have never ended up as seamless as it did.
Brenda is dedicated to her profession and she works with a team who has a “hands on” approach. We worked with a different Realtor when we originally purchased the home 3 years ago. I would highly recommend Brenda and her team at Craven and Company to anyone who is looking for a dedicated Realtor that gives their clients the individual personal attention they need and deserve. Thank you Brenda and your entire team at Craven and Company Realtors for giving us the peace of mind we needed during the last few months. With your professional assistance, we were able to sell our home quickly, seamlessly, and ultimately resulting in a favorable financial gain in a real estate market that is currently struggling. It gives us hope that our next home purchase will be as hassle-free and stress-free. It has been an honor to work with you and we would only hope that anyone who is looking for a professional Realtor will find you so they too can have the same wonderful experience.
