About Cindy Kraus

A self-professed introvert at heart, Cindy Kraus knows what it is like to face your most challenging fears, including the fear of success. She grew up in a challenging home environment and credits the love and stability of her grandmother and sister that shaped who she is today.

Cindy’s first professional career was in the medical field. She was a Respiratory Therapist for 30 years.  Having worked in this field so long, she understands instinctively why high-level professionals need an advocate who can provide turnkey solutions for services outside their everyday work lives. As her career was nearing the 30th year, her daughter was getting ready to go to college and she had an 8-year-old son at home.  It was time for a career change.  Real estate seemed a perfect solution because it combined her love for architecture with a schedule that would be flexible enough to give her son the time and care he needed throughout the rest of his school years.

The moment she earned her real estate license, Cindy decided her talents would best serve medical and other high-level professionals who are seeking luxury real estate throughout East Tennessee. They would need someone they could trust implicitly so they could stay focused on their profession while she settles the specifics of their transaction. As a result, she has adopted the mantra and is recognized for providing Exceptional Service for Platinum Professionals. She has her broker’s license and is a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist who is in the top 10% of agents in her area. 

Cindy lives in Farragut, Tennessee with her husband, Paul. They have four children and two dogs.  When she isn’t settling the specifics of a real estate deal for her busy clients, she enjoys walking her Goldendoodles, Bella & Henry, and volunteering with area groups and causes such as Emerald Youth Foundation, Wesley House, Charity Chicks, and Farragut Rotary.

Cindy’s background and stellar service record make her a sought-after agent among medical and other high-level professionals, but that isn’t the main reason her clients appreciate her.  She believes in treating all people with dignity, friendship, and a smile, no matter their walk in life.  That character trait proves that, regardless of your childhood challenges, you can overcome the past and become an inspiration to others.
