My Client Comments:
If you are looking for an agent who goes above and beyond in every possible way, look no further. Cheryl is nothing short of amazing. She was recommended to me by friends who had recently closed on a new home in Oakland and I am so glad to have made that call.
Cheryl lives in the community and knows her area very well. She understands the nuance of each neighborhood in Oakland and can help you get the most bang for your buck. As someone who has renovated properties, Cheryl has great contractor references and is able to help you assess the condition of a home before you pay for costly inspections.
She also has infinite patience, and that was really important to me as I was freaking out in a probate sale with an inexperienced agent representing the seller. Cheryl is as good as it gets!
Cheryl recently helped me sell my home in Oakland. From the beginning, it required a lot of work on her part since I had already moved from the area and was working with a relocation company. She made the process as painless as possible. She recommended and met numerous contractors and inspectors at my property. She also gave me invaluable advice about preparing my home to go on the market, to include small touches like new light fixtures. She kept me apprised about the process since I was living cross country, and found a buyer who paid well above my list price. Last, but not least, she talked me down from the ledge a number of times because of my frustration with the requirements of the relocation company. I cannot recommend Cheryl enough for her patience, advice, and expertise in the local market.
Cheryl recently represented us in the sale of our house in the Oakland hills. We had never sold a house before and were going to be out of the country for much of the process, so we relied heavily on her advice as well as her supervision of the many tasks required to prep the house and shepherd the entire process through to closing. She gave us astute advice in how to polish up our house for the type of buyers she knew would be in the market for it and helped us find reasonably priced contractors to do the work. When the offers came in, she helped us negotiate and receive the best possible price in the current market. All along the way, including when we were nervous and even grumpy, she was warm and reassuring and gave us great client service. We definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor who really knows the local market and who will devote herself to getting the best deal for her clients.
Cheryl was our agent in both a purchase and sale in Oakland. Cheryl is an amazing Realtor, we cannot recommend her highly enough! Her experience in the east bay market means no curve ball will stump her, her network of contractors is excellent, and her staging and photography teams make your property shine.
