"We gave Cecilia a tough task when she began working with us. She had to a find a house for a large family who used their home for a lot of different things, and she had to do it with a tight budget! She patiently showed us around multiple houses and spent the time at each one giving us helpful information and insight to aid us in making our decision. It was evident from the beginning that she wanted to help us find not just any house, but a house that was best suited for our family. Searching for a home can be tough, but working with Cecilia was always an easy and pleasant experience. Her depth of knowledge in the real estate industry, housing market conditions, and the local community, combined with her evident years of experience gave us a real advantage in our search for a new home. With Cecilia's help, we were able to find a great home in a wonderful neighborhood that fit our families need and didn't break our budget. We would recommend her to a family member, friend, or anyone we meet in an instant.
—Kevin and Erin Vile August 23, 2012
"Cecilia was absolutely wonderful to work with. She blends a combination of industry knowledge and experience with a unique realness and flexibility. Through the entire process of buying and selling our current and past homes I felt like I was working with a friend that wanted the best for me and my family rather than a person paid on the commission of the sales. I would recommend Cecilia to anyone and look forward to staying in touch with her. "
—Trey and Kinsy McNamee November 11, 2011
"Cecilia and her staff were so professional and tenacious about getting our home sold. She was great with communicating all the ways she would strive to market the home for sale (MLS listing, several planned, advertised open houses, marketing websites, etc.) We had an offer in about 3 months and the home sold. That is pretty terrific for today's housing market! We will definitely ask for Cecilia's assistance again for our family's future home sales.
—Marti Helser October 30, 2012
"Prior to selling my house, I gave a lot of consideration to choosing the best real estate agent to represent me. It was a difficult decision because I am personally acquainted with a number of agents. Cecilia was my choice because I know her to be a person of integrity and I felt that her knowledge of the market and marketing skills were exceptional. Most of all, I knew that she was a good listener and trusted that I would not be convinced to make any decisions that were not prudent. I have not regretted my decision to work with Cecilia!
Cecilia met with me prior to listing and went through the house with me, making suggestions for the best possible presentation of the property. She also thoroughly explained the listing contract. When it came close to the time to list we decided on the optimal time to begin presenting the property and the asking price. On the day after the listing a couple to viewed my home made an offer an hour after they left and after negotiations paid the full price that I had asked. The facts speak for themselves. Obviously, I do not hesitate to recommend Cecilia Richardson as a real estate agent who can be trusted to work in your best interest.

"Deciding to downsize and place one’s family home on the market is a daunting decision in and of itself. Finding the right someone who understands all of the emotional attachment and brings a personal touch in marketing that home is no simple task either. We are very happy to say that we found just the right agent in Cecilia. From the initial interview to the final closing, Cecilia maintained just the right blend of professionalism, strategy, sound advice, positive attitude and good humor. Her market analyses was spot on, her use of marketing resources was most impressive. Her timely and prompt communications with all parties kept everyone well informed and reassured. Cecilia made the difference for us in finding the right buyer in a tough market. We highly recommend Cecilia for your real estate marketing needs. Randy & Jane Pozniak
We were so pleased with the service we received from our realtor, Cecilia Richardson, during the sale process of our home in Perrysburg, that we wanted to write this recommendation which we never do! If you are looking for a good realtor, she is the best! Very professional throughout the entire process and also very knowledgable about everything from the market value during the listing process to the best way to get the listing to the forefront when showings seem to slow down. She spends a lot of time on her business and seemed to be available any time we needed her, day or night. She also had several opened houses which seemed to help get the house more visible to the market. We felt like we were always her top priority even though she had other listings and other buyers she was working with.
She also was very good during the closing process, providing the closing company what they needed and keeping us up to date on what was happening leading up to the closing. Having worked for a title insurance company for a long time and being familiar with most realtors in the area, I think no one could have done a better job for us!
—Janet and Bill McIntyre November 14, 2012
"We were very pleased with Cecilia Richardson's professionalism and also her personal touch. We signed with her at the beginning of August and we were sold and out by the end of October. She suggested an "open house" which both my husband and I were not in favor of. Well, little did we know, that was just the ticket to selling our house. Cecilia made it happen for us, and the timing was rather quick too. I would recommend her to anyone who is really serious about selling their house. She will get it done! Thanks again, Cecilia! "
—Mike and Lori Sell November 14, 2011
"The service and personal attention we received from Cecilia Richardson was exceptional and unexpected from a Realtor! Cecilia is professional, prepared, articulate and personable. Her knowledge of the local market helped us in our search for our dream home. She made sure we got the best offer for our previous home (which sold in less than a week) and more importantly, the best value purchase for the new one! Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Cecilia Richardson with Danberry Real Estate to help you in this life changing move. We could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through the process. "
—Scott and Amanda Graven July 20, 2011
"We recently relocated to Perrysburg and purchased a home through Cecilia Richardson and she was outstanding through the whole process. She not only found us the perfect home but also gave us information about Perrysburg helping us to find a dentist, doctor and even a playgroup for our children. We knew what we wanted in a home and she was so patient in finding us exactly what we wanted and always accommodated our schedules. She even brought our daughter a gift at closing. I know Cecilia really cares about her clients and has made our move to a new city much easier. Thank you so much Cecilia! "
—Lindsay, Jamie, Faith and Lila Martel June 12, 2012
"Cecilia - We would like to thank you for your guidance in the recent purchase of our new home and the sale of our old home. Even though you were the seller's agent for the purchase of our new home, you treated us in a professional manner. In fact, your professionalism and sincerity made our decision quite easy when we were looking for a realtor to sell our house. We knew potential buyers would be refreshed to deal with a realtor who has years of market knowledge and also keenly aware of the financial and emotional investments involved in buying or selling a home. Thank you for your support! We love our new home and would look to you for any future real estate needs."
—Michelle and Patrick Koralewski January 24, 2012
"It was definitely my pleasure to have you as my Realtor. You were great at keeping me informed. You truly worked hard representing my home. I will definitely be recommending you to everyone. "
—Judy M June 5, 2010
"My family was relocating to Ohio and I asked the office manager of Danberry for one of his best - Cecelia lived up to our expectations, was always courteous and professional, listened well to our needs, and identified homes that were targeted. "
—Ray and Lisa Alcodray October 11, 2011
"Cecilia came highly recommended from a co-worker. He told me that she would work hard for me and find me the home I was looking for. I was initially impressed with Cecilia’s enthusiasm, communication skills and professional demeanor when I met her for the first time. She consistently demonstrated all of these qualities and more, along with being very thorough and supplying all pertinent information on any of the properties we viewed. If she said I’ll get you the information, I received it within a few hours.
Cecilia is reliable, dedicated and eternally upbeat. She consistently met or surpassed my expectations of a realtor, and most of all she became a friend during our time together. If you are looking for a realtor that will go above and beyond your expectations, Cecilia is the realtor you will want in searching for your new home. She truly worked hard for me and found the home I was looking for.
Cecilia is a very hardworking, top-performing customer service professional. She has my highest recommendation, and you will not be disappointed.
— Ed Grant March 26, 2013
"I’ve bought and sold 16 homes over the last 35 years. Cecilia Richardson is, hands down, the best realtor I’ve ever worked with. Her professionalism, energy, patience, and persistence have set the bar high for anyone else we might deal with in the future. When we first moved to Toledo (from Georgia) she showed us around, helped us understand all of our options, led us through dozens of potential homes, gently guided us to the right decisions, and held our hands throughout the entire purchase process. She managed to keep her cool in spite of my “stubbornness” on a few minor issues When our first few offers fell through she stayed cool, calm, collected, and professional and helped us find just the right house for us at a great price. She also recommended and effectively “managed” several contractors throughout the closing process as we completed a handful of small repairs and renovations needed to close and get moved in. Everything went smoothly and well and we enjoyed our new neighborhood and home immensely.
Then, after two Toledo winters in our wonderful home we decided to move to Florida. We never considered calling anyone but Cecilia to handle our sale. She accepted the challenge, helped us set the right price, de-clutter and stage the home, marketed us to the world, got our first offer in less than 2 weeks, and within 4 weeks we had our home sold! Again, Cecilia endured my stubbornness as we turned down 2 contracts before finally settling in on the right buyers at a fair price. The closing went off without a hitch and everyone on all sides seemed pleased with the way things have turned out.
Cecilia is a wonderful friend and a consummate professional and we recommend her without hesitation for any and all of your realtor needs.
—Gerald and Karen Burch May 10, 2013
"Cecilia was a fabulous, thoughtful realtor for my son and his fiancé when they purchased a home, as well as for my mother when she purchased a condo. My son and his fiancé spent several months looking for their first home in the location they wanted and at a price they felt they could afford. Throughout the very long process of showing them home after home, Cecilia was extremely patient, arranged showings around their schedules and her knowledge of the real estate market was invaluable to them. My mother on the other hand knew exactly what she wanted and that she wanted it now! Cecilia arranged for mom’s transaction to move quickly and her recommendation as to the fair amount to offer saved mom a substantial amount of money and also made for a very happy seller. I would recommend Cecilia to anyone selling or purchasing real estate in this area regardless of whether you want to take your time or move quickly! "
—Sharon Aldrich November 9, 2011
"My sister and I were very pleased to work with Cecilia as we put my parents’ 35 year old house on the market. She gave us excellent advice on pricing, marketing and improving our property. Her hard work and professional manner was evident in guiding us through the process and answering our questions, the open houses she held and in all our dealings with her. Calls were returned promptly and communication went well. We feel she was an important reason we were able to sell our home within a reasonable time in a difficult market, for a fair price with a smooth closing process. I feel she did an excellent and I recommend her highly."

"We found Cecilia to be very knowledgeable and professional. She answered all of our questions and gave us her opinion when we asked for it but never tried to "Sell Us A House". She listened to us and did a great job of showing us houses that matched our criteria, taste and price range. I would certainly recommend Cecilia to anyone looking for a house in the Perrysburg area. "
—Chris and Diane Sackett October 29, 2010
"I had the privilege to work with Cecilia for the past 2 years , because of her knowledge and professionalism and personality I don't think I can work with another agent again as a matter of fact she is not an agent she is a Friend .
Cecilia will be my Realtor friend for life.

"Selling a house was a first-time experience for us. Cecilia came highly recommended to us, and she lived up to her reputation. She met with us at the beginning of the process and helped us to get our home ready to be put on the market. Throughout the process, she kept us well-informed and gave us honest and up-to-date information. She answered our questions in a timely manner and stuck with us throughout the entire process. We hope to work with Cecilia again for our future real estate needs and would recommend her to anyone looking for a hard working and knowledgeable realtor.
—Chris and Kim Buehrer September 1, 2013
"As first-time home buyers, Cecilia was enormously helpful to my wife and I, providing excellent advice and making us feel like her only clients. She navigated us through the whirlwind of negotiating and closing on our home and made it a breeze. When it came time for us to leave the area and sell our home, there was no question that we would list with Cecilia. She acclimated us to the current market conditions quickly and helped us set a list price that took into consideration the unique aspects of our home. We received interest immediately and accepted an offer just 5 days after the house went on the market... and at a profit to our original purchase price. Cecilia is as trustworthy and helpful as real estate agents come. We could not be happier with our choice to have her as our agent.
—Luke and Allison Barnard June 15, 2013

"We first purchased a home in 2005 with Cecilia Richardson as our agent---she did a great job of listening to exactly what we wanted in our new home and showed us houses that were in our price range, had the bedrooms and square footage that we wanted and showed us homes that were only in the location we desired---After a job transfer and a move out of state we went back to Cecilia to help us sell our house---we all know it is a tuff housing market today, but we appreciated all the hard work that Cecilia did to help us sell our house this past October, 2011---as we were dealing with selling a house and living several thousand miles away, Cecilia was always available with emails and phone calls---since we were gone and the house was empty Cecilia helped us get in contact with Show Homes to give our home the best possible appearance---Cecilia used all the marketing tools, had several open houses as needed and showed the house to all possible clients, all the time working hard to find the right family to purchase our home---once the house was sold Cecilia was very helpful in contacting and helping set up all the inspections and repair work that needed to be done before closing---Thanks again to Cecilia Richardson for everything she did to help us sell our house."

Cecilia is a great person and knows what she is doing. She did a great job in selling our home.
—John Merritt December 7, 2016
We worked with Cecilia for buying our first home, and she was very helpful throughout this process. The best thing about her is quick response and availability to show the houses. She was always available and was very patient in explaining all the details of the home buying process. Thanks to Cecilia we were able to see the houses even before they would be listed on internet websites. This helped us put the best offer to sellers , which was important in seller's market. She would always give her truthful opinion and did not shy away to point out any noticeable problems. She is very personable and knows perrysburg area very well. I will recommend her to my friends and family.
—Rahul Khupse March 31, 2016
Having moved from Perrysburg to Michigan 16 years ago due to work, we were ready to move back to the area to be near the children upon retirement. One of our friends recommended us to Cecilia and we couldn't be happier. Cecilia took the time to chat with us and determine what we wanted and showed us several alternatives to consider. We ultimately chose a newly constructed free standing condo. Cecilia was not only great about locating the new residence but helped us with the contractor and their agent as well as the financing institution. No doubt about it, we lucked out in finding Cecilia!
—Joe and Bonnie Ferguson March 29, 2016
I highly recommend Cecilia for anyone buying a home. My husband and I were looking for our first home, and Cecilia was recommended to us. Working with Cecilia was a delight. As an architect, I'm very particular about certain things, which makes house hunting a process. Cecilia was perfect; she always gave her opinion and pointed out things we should look for, as well as things we should avoid. Plus, she really sees the possibilities in a home. We spent about seven months looking at houses, and Cecilia was always available to show them, working around both my husband's and my busy schedule. We ended up buying an old fixer-upper that had been built in 1925, and we got it for significantly under the asking price. Going through this process with Cecilia made what could have been a very frustrating experience into an easy transition to our new home. On top of her professionalism and everything she did to make finding a home easy, her knowledge and guidance during the closing proceedings was crucial and made what should have been the most complicated part very manageable. We're so happy with our purchase and with Cecilia as a realtor!
—Jaimie and Todd January 26, 2017
When my wife Yan and I recently began looking for a new home in Perrysburg, we were in need of a very knowledgeable, experienced, patient and understanding Realtor to help us along with the process of buying our next home. We were very fortunate to have come across Cecilia to guide us along the way. She was always available for us, without much notice at all, and was able to answer any questions or concerns we may have had in a very timely manner. Cecilia did such a wonderful job of everything, from the very beginning, to the very end when we closed on our home. Be smart and let her help you with your home search just as she helped us. You will be very pleased and happy that you did. She was incredible!
—Jerry Lisiakowski May 31, 2017
Cecilia knows her stuff! Of course she knows the RE market, but she also knows how to assess the personal traits of her clients and tailor her approach to their needs. That is what makes her so good at what she does. She listed my house on Monday afternoon and got a solid bid at asking price on Thursday of the same week! "Nuff" said.
—Ed Talarico August 29, 2017
Cecilia was incredibly patient and helpful throughout my entire year long process of finding and purchasing a new home. She set up multiple viewings, was incredibly responsive, and I'd recommend her to anyone.

I was out of town and needed to get my house sold quickly. Cecilia provided great advice for listing and getting my house ready to sell. She was easy to work with given the distance.
—Christi Brink May 31, 2017
As I was unfamiliar with the Toledo area when I began my house hunt, I depended heavily on Cecilia to guide me to the neighborhoods that would be the best fit for me. She did exactly that, and I couldn't be happier with her service. In addition to her in-depth knowledge of the local market, I very much appreciated her patience with my many questions. I have no hesitation in recommending her, and have in fact already passed her name on to a good friend who may be moving to Toledo soon.
—Kim Smith May 31, 2017
Cecilia guided us through selling our home and purchasing another. She priced our home competitively and it sold in 3 days, we couldn't have asked for more. Two months later when another home became available, she negotiated a great purchase price and again, we were thrilled. Through these processes she was nothing but calm, reasonable, prompt in contacting us, the seller, gathering pertinent property information and getting back in touch. She was organized, prepared and always available to show a property at our convenience. It was truly a positive event, not without some glitches, where she advocated professionally, leaving all parties satisfied with the outcome. Home sales are emotional and exhausting events for sellers and buyers and Cecilia assisted us as we experienced both roles in a matter of a couple months. We consider Cecilia a new friend, we're glad we found her! She is sincere and kind woman, has a sense of humor and is very thoughtful. She even presented us with a lovely housewarming gift fitting our design style. Selecting Cecilia to be your agent will be a great decision! You'll be so glad you did. She understands buyers, sellers, neighborhoods, listens to what's important to her clients and will help you find a home and community that's the right fit.
—Terry and Deb Baker November 30, 2015
Go with Cecilia! She is the absolute best. Very responsive to all questions and has the knowledge and expertise to guide you through any transaction. She helped us through both a purchase and sale in Perrysburg. The process was flawless thanks to her dedication.
—Matt and Jessica Davis September 30, 2015
"Because we are more familiar with the suburb of Toledo that we now live in, it was helpful that Cecilia was knowledgeable about Perrysburg. She showed us/and or checked into multiple properties and houses. When we finally decided upon this lot, Cecilia helped to negotiate what we felt was a good price! We highly recommend her! "

Cecilia is the absolute best realtor in Northwest Ohio. Her knowledge of the area, availability to her clients, and professionalism is second to none. My husband and I relocated from the East Coast for his career and Cecilia not only helped us find the perfect home for us, she did it quickly and got us a price that was below asking (in a neighborhood where many of the homes go for the asking). We would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell. You will not be disappointed!
—Joe and Sami Cordella September 30, 2015
"Throughout the process of purchasing our new home Cecilia was extremely knowledgable of the area, schools, communities, builders as well as community events. She was not shy about expressing her opinion which was very much appreciated...we didn't want someone who told us what we wanted to hear....her honesty is an asset in the realtor profession. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy and or sell a home. Thank you Cecilia. "
—Lance and Brenda Hunt September 2, 2015
"Cecilia helped make the entire process of the purchase, and later sale of my condo very smooth and stress free. She has extensive knowledge of the local market, so always offered excellent advice. She was very available when helping me find a home, and worked diligently to sell my home. Cecilia was always professional, prepared, and very personable, and a good negotiator. I highly recommend Cecilia Richardson to anyone with real estate needs!"
—Chris Kelly June 3, 2015
"Cecilia came highly recommended through a relative and she has been working with us for a very long time. We started the process of looking for a new home nearly 2 years ago and found we were not quite positioned to sell our current home. Cecilia was so patient and helpful with understanding what we needed to do to move our current home as well as with our (probably ultra picky criteria for our new home) and worked with us for months until we found the right place. We will be using Cecilia's' service to sell our other home too and highly recommend her as an agent. "
—Tammi Donaldson and Matt Nye June 3, 2015
Working with Cecilia to sell my mother's home turned out to be a very positive experience. My mom was near the end of her life and wanted to meet with Cecilia to talk about the sale of her home. Cecilia made the time to come and meet her and assure her that her home would most likely sell fairly quickly due to the real-estate market in Perrysburg. Her home was listed a month after her passing. Cecilia was very personable and professional to work with. She explained how the home would be marketed and held an open house shortly after the listing. Being an emotional time Cecilia was sensitive to the situation. Cecilia was always accessible and got back to me in a timely manner with answers to my questions. She did her magic and sold my mom's home within a few weeks. Without hesitation I would highly recommend Cecilia for anyone looking for an excellent Realtor. You will be very happy with the results!
