Born and raised in the Northeast, Cynthia originally set out to be a fashion designer. She attended the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City before deciding to further pursue her education in Art History and Interior Design on the West Coast. Cynthia’s wanderlust for life inspired her to travel the world. She has lived in some of her native country’s most beautiful places, including Newport Beach California, Maui Hawaii, Aspen Colorado, New Orleans Louisiana, St John’s Virgin Islands and lastly Westport Connecticut before discovering her true home in soulful San Miguel de Allende. She has resided here for over a decade with her two locally rescued cats; animal rescue remains a mission that is close to her heart. After many years of being in the art world, the pinnacle of her art career came when partnering with gallerist Kamil from Monte Carlo, where she worked amongst some of the top avant-garde European artists. Cynthia then turned to representing and managing luxury retail businesses, including Swiss watchmaking company Franck Muller, Madison Avenue’s Fred Leighton “Jeweler to the Stars” and then successfully launching “Paris Underground Antiques” in Aspen before opening her own mid-century design shop in New Orleans “What Modern Was.” Naturally combining her passion for architecture, design and her finely-honed people skills was the inspiration behind yet another career move as a luxury real estate agent in Aspen, thus allowing her the freedom to continue traveling and writing.
Cynthia shares her wealth of design, luxury sales and almost 20 years of real estate experience with her clients here in San Miguel de Allende. Her enthusiasm and zest shines through in her work and remains her focus in helping others. Whether it’s being sensitive to her buyer’s needs, sellers requiring advice on how to stage their home or a property negotiation from a simple pied-a-terre to navigating the largest private residential transaction in San Miguel´s history, Cynthia is here offering her expertise, never-ending energy and support to realize her clients real estate goals!
