About Cindy




A career in Real Estate
During the onset of the recession in 1989 through 1994, Cindy Stys, established a career as a Realtor at Coldwell Banker Phyllis Rubin Real Estate in StroudsburgPA. During that time Cindy had established her presence in the local market place as the horse property specialist.


After getting married she moved to Switzerland teaming up with another Realtor in the office. During month long visits back to the US, she would secure listings and develop marketing strategies once back in Europe while her partner would service the listings stateside.


Her broker used to laugh and say that Cindy was earning more commissions living in Switzerland than some of her full time agents on site. 















International Equestrian Federation, LausanneSwitzerland


In 1995, Cindy gained employment with the International Equestrian Federation (FEI) in Lausanne, Switzerland in the Olympic and Eventing Departments. Working there for over 2 years provided her with the knowledge of the inner workings of horse sport at the highest level.  Cindy's involvement in the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games was the highlight of her employment with this Federation, member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC).  Working at this level provided Cindy with valuable contacts and friendships from horse sport legends to royalty.  After moving back to the US, Cindy resumed selling real estate for several years.

United States Equestrian Federation, Inc., Gladstone, NJ
Five months after leaving the FEI to move back to the US Cindy was hired by the US Equestrians Federation for the high profile job as Director of Athlete Services located at the headquarters of the United States Equestrian Team. Her work experience in international horse sport with the FEI and fluency in French made her the perfect candidate to serve as "ambassador" for the Federation acting as liaison between foreign organizing committees and US competitors. She played a key role in the long battle for national governing body status between the United States Equestrian Team and the Federation. In October of 2001 she testified before the United States Olympic Committee as the only staff member. During her career in horse sports Cindy has built rapport with a wealth of riders, trainers and officials throughout the US and overseas. She has worked with legends like George Morris, Frank Chapot, Captain Mark Philips and Klaus Balkenhol.


World Equestrian Games

Cindy has worked as a volunteer during 3 of the 5 World Equestrian Games starting in Rome (ITA) 1998, Jerez de la Frontera (ESP) 2002 and in Lexington, Kentucky 2010 during the 16 days of competition.  She also attended the WEG 2006 in Aachen (GER) as an accredited observer.  She worked at the FEI General Assembly of Nations in San Francisco in 2001 and served as the international liaison for the show jumping department at the inaugural World Cup Final in Las Vegas 2005. 


Aside from her career in horse sport and degree in equine studies, she has been riding since age 11 and a horse owner since age 15.  She currently owns a Lusitano on which she rides dressage. Cindy’s diversified background in real estate, equestrian sports and paralegal studies have well prepared her for the creation of a niche brokerage firm focusing on equestrian and country properties.
