Before entering the world of real estate I had a career as a teacher with a degree in fiction writing and early childhood education. Working as a teacher gave me invaluable and numerous lessons in customer service, ethics, patience, organization, and negations surrounding sensitive subject matter. It gave me opportunities to work within socially, economically, and culturally diverse populations all over the city. I’m excited to carry all these experiences into a field where I can help people individually, and by doing so contributes to my success directly.
As a lifelong Chicagoan, I have a lot of family in the city. When I’m not working you can find me hitting up a restaurant with friends, driving down Lake Shore Drive, or exploring the city with my 8 year old pit bull mix, Gimli. I like to bring humor, authenticity, and equality with me in everything I do and I have always enjoyed working closely with people from all walks of life, and am eager to steer that passion into real estate.
They have two locations, my favorite is the one on Irving Park. They’ve been around since 1975 and make the best hotdogs in the city. The staff are always super friendly and they have picnic tables outside where you can sit and eat.
This has been my favorite museum in the city since I was a kid. They have everything from mummies to dinosaurs year round, and tons of amazing exhibits that come through year round. Some of my all time favorites include terra cotta warriors and the vikings exhibits.
This is another one of my childhood favorites, known in my family as “the flower house”. It’s a great place to go to escape the bitter cold Chicago winters. When you walk in you immediately feel as though you’ve been transported to a tropical paradise.
Working with Cydney
Cydney Stumpf made my post-covid apartment hunt a breeze. Without her I may not have found a place to live, and for that I owe her an eternal debt of gratitude. If I could give her 100 stars I would. She is a realty angel. - Joe M.
Cydney Stumpf was an amazing agent. She got right back to me. She was honest and upfront about the apartment and lease. She was patient when I asked if we could walk back to the apartment to check the water pressure haha. All in all a great agent. - Alexis D.
Just wanted to say that Cydney has been SO great in helping me with getting approved for my apartment in such a short quick time, AND was there to answer any questions I had along the way. If you're looking to rent, I recommend Cydney to help you! Her flexibility and willing to work with you is top notch. Thank you SO much! - Dorian H.
Cydney Stumpf is someone you can count on to make this process a breeze. She was so knowledgeable on the property and gave me a lot of information during the tour. I felt really comfortable and supported throughout the process and she answered all of the questions I had, which is a lot as a young renter. She is highly communicative, kind, and definitely knows her stuff! - Finn M.
