I have been a full-time real estate agent since 2001. I grew up in the Washington, DC/Maryland area. After graduated from the University of Maryland, with a degree in Economics, I moved to New York City to pursue a career in both advertising and print, focusing on both creative campaigns as well as negotiating deals. When it was time to move out of NYC, Larchmont was the likely choice; close to NYC, the Long Island Sound and a lovely quaint town where everyone walked to school and town.
Making the transition to Residential Real Estate was seamless for me, having a creative background and strong negotiating skills helped with staging of homes, photography, social media and closing deals. My strong commitment to both my buyers and sellers speaks volumes to my success in real estate. I look forward to the opportunity of working with you on your next real estate transaction.

Cini Palmer is perhaps the best, most service oriented real estate broker I’ve had the privilege to work with. Her can-do attitude and creative problem-solving capabilities are apparent and contributes to any successful home transaction. Cini also has a network of professionals from stagers to cleaners to painters to movers to organizers which contribute to a successful house sale. Her attitude and personality are refreshing and allows her to work well with sellers and the buyers. I whole heartedly recommend her highly.
Discovery, uncertainty, apprehension, and indecision were indicative of the emotions we felt as complete novices to the process of buying — coupled with a move to the suburbs after 20+ years of living on the Upper East Side almost seemed like insurmountable odds. We moved in August and Cini Palmer was instrumental in the accomplishment!
Cini navigated us through an 18 month parkour negotiating obstacles (often our uncertainty) with empathy, devotion, and a depth of knowledge which allowed us to complete the process with a sense of achievement and realization that we made the right choice across all stages of the purchasing cycle. It is not easy for urban to go suburban and even less for renters to leap into first time buyers. We had worked with other realtors prior to Cini; however, the adroitness, the competence, the dexterity, along with who and what she knows in the area were key.
Patience and engagement are operatives for buyers like us and Cini was that. We would call, text, show up at open houses and solicit her opinion or presence with little notice. Cini would always be available to answer, to show, to give direction, and join us. Cini would show us what we liked and what she liked - being candid with her observations, for or against in order to give a complete sense of the potential of each house and what we would be facing. We asked a lot! There was a failed attempt which she told us to walk away from after the bidding started running away. There was Saturday night call and visit request which she made happen - we passed. And there was a Monday morning 10:00am visit with seal bids at noon while she was on vacation which she scrambled to make happen - we bought that one.
She is committed to excellence and to her client. Cini is what we (and I am sure many buyers) envision as the ideal real estate agent. We felt privileged to have her on our side. She is the embodiment of a real estate agent: fair, knowledgeable, patient, empathetic, and caring.

Cini Palmer brought a rare combination of local market savvy, thoughtful marketing and personable service to the sale of our home on Beach Avenue in Larchmont. She was also a trusted advisor on the purchase of our current home on Larchmont Avenue. We can recommend working with Cini without hesitation. She is always available, considerate of her clients' time, respectful of their homes and extremely knowledgeable about the local market. We purchased a new home in 2007 as the financial markets were entering a crisis. Cini quickly put together a thorough marketing plan, organized broker open houses and targeted a key list of prospective buyers. The brochures and web listings for our property were extremely professional and presented our house in way that made me question why we were selling it. Cini handled offers with discretion and tact. She was helpful to the winning bidder and our attorneys throughout the process of inspections, negotiations and closing. Throughout, Cini was a pleasure to deal with and continues to provide valuable consultation on all matters pertaining to real estate and the broader community.

We have loved working with Cini throughout the years. She helped us find our first home in Larchmont which was the perfect fit for our young family at the time. As our family grew, we needed more space and Cini was exceptionally patient with us as we spent the next 2-3 years trying to find the perfect house. Cini was willing to show us anything and everything and always made time for us. Even when she knew there was a house that we would not end up buying, she took the time to show it to us anyway just so we could better understand the market and what was available. Once we found the right house for us, Cini then helped us sell our first home. She had great ideas for how best to show our house and was able to sell our house in a week’s time. She is a true professional, knows the market really well and makes the process of buying and selling a home as stress free as possible. We always recommend Cini to any of our friends looking for a great broker.
We feel very fortunate to have had Cini as our agent and advocate while we
searched for our house in Larchmont. Finding her by good fortune, having been
interested in a house she had listed, we immediately signed on for her to
represent us. Cini's friendliness and knowledge stood out to us immediately as
characteristics we'd want in our agent. But it is her consistent flexibility,
availability, worthy advice, and honesty that made us feel like we had struck
gold. Cini also served as a resource for us in not only her recommendations for
house related issues, but also for local doctors, schools, and anything you can
imagine needing advice for when joining a new community.
When we first began working with Cini we were debating the rent vs. buy decision so we started looking at rentals. She listened to what was important to us and showed us several rentals that met our criteria. At some point we decided we should also look at houses for sale given the market conditions. She was very accomodating and made the time to meet with us and show us houses based on our schedule. She was also extremely patient since we did end up going back to a few houses several times. We really liked these houses but thought they would require more work than we were ready for. Cini recommended a general contractor who met us at each house to give us a sense re: how extensive (and expensive) the work would be. After looking at more than 30 homes, we found the house that was perfect for us and Cini guided us through the bidding and negotiation process which resulted in a successful closing. Cini also provided us with several recommendations along the way, ie: structural engineers for the inspection and attorney to use for the closing, and we continue to seek her advice re: recommendations for any work that we are having done around the house. Cini was a pleasure to work with and she made our first home buying experience much smoother than we would have expected. Hope it's a productive spring season!
