“Cindy Metz was instrumental in helping with our efforts to relocate a medical office to Green Township. Cindy conducted a thorough review of the market, purchase and lease alternatives and ultimately site selection. She was diligent and timely in facilitating communication between us and the building owner and was particularly strong on follow-through. Since that transaction we have sought Cindy’s help in other areas and the relationship continues to be a productive one. She has earned our respect and our recommendation. ”
Matt Walsh, Chief Operating, Apex Eye
“We wanted to take a moment to recognize the efforts of Cindy Metz of NAI Bergman in helping us find a location for our second Painting With a Twist studio. Her knowledge of currently and coming available retail spaces in numerous areas of the city was invaluable in helping us solidify our perspective on what would be our best option. We found her very in touch with the market climate/demographics of the areas we were searching as well. Our lease went seamlessly and communications were open and effective. As an added bonus, we found Cindy to be very helpful in guiding us to and introducing us to pertinent contacts in our chosen area. Cindy listened to our vision and showed us locations that fit that vision. We are very pleased to have partnered with Cindy in our search and would not hesitate to do so again in the future. We heartily recommend Cindy Metz to anyone wanting personable, professional service in searching for a retail location.”
Cheree and Steve Gallant, Owners, Painting With a Twist
“”My company is an out of town owner of a commercial building on the west side of Cincinnati. Cindy Metz has been an invaluable resource for us having single handedly taken our building occupancy from 50% to its current occupancy rate of approximately 90%. She is extremely knowledgeable about the Cincinnati market and is an excellent communicator and negotiator. I highly recommend Cindy to anyone with commercial real estate needs.””
Brad McFarlane, CCIM, The Promanas Group
“I would like to say a few words about my experience with Cindy. She has been a pleasure to work with. My brother and I both agree that she represents us very well. She is looking out for our best interest. Cindy understands the market very well and has a significant presence on the West Side of Cincinnati. She is willing to listen to the customer and collaborate to offer the best strategic solution for our property. ”
Bernie and Ralph Meierjohan, Meierjohan Builders
Our company has worked with Cindy on buying, selling and leasing property. Cindy has always been thorough, available, and diligent in her work with us. She has a wonderful demeanor, is very sensible and rational, and always has the best interest of our company in mind. Our company has been very satisfied with the transactions in which she has assisted us. I would highly recommend Cindy to anyone who wants to buy, sell or lease real estate.
John Getgey, President, BridgePointe Psychological and Counseling Services
My company owns a 30,000 sq ft office park on the West Side of Cincinnati. We had tried five different commercial realtors over a five year span without closing on a single lease. Two and a half years ago I met Cindy Metz. She immediately impressed me with her professionalism, courtesy and conviction that she could successfully locate tenants for our property. Cindy has been true to her word. We recently signed a lease with the fourth tenant that Cindy has delivered to us.

If you are looking for a commercial realtor who gets results when others fail I highly recommend Cindy Metz!

Tom Gruber, Monfort Park, 30,000 sq ft Office Park
Not only is Cindy the consummate professional, but an excellent teacher as well. Her ease and experience let’s her knowledge flow in a way it is easily understood. On top of it all, you can tell she enjoys the challenges of her profession, which is contagious for the novice and makes the buying / selling a more gratifying experience.
Ron Houck, President, the plant trolley, inc.
“I met Cindy Metz as I was looking for a new office space. Cindy took the time to understand our business and what we needed in an office space. She presented me with excellent options that matched or very closely matched our requirements. She was also very accommodating, working around my schedule to show me the different spaces. Overall, I would recommend Cindy to anyone who is seeking a professional, personable and reliable commercial realtor! It has been a pleasure working with her!”
