"Have known Cheryl for almost 20 years. Would not consider selling with anyone else. She was very knowledgeable professional. She surpassed my expectations." Brookline (Seller)

“Cheryl’s skillful preparation prior to our home going on the market made the process very efficient smooth. It is an absolute pleasure to work with Cheryl we would recommend her to anyone interested in selling or buying a home.”

“Cheryl was fantastic from the interview until the sale of our home. She was professional, wise, realistic, very focused on doing whatever it was going to take to make a fair deal for me for the family moving in. She was very respectful authentic. A jewel.”

"Cheryl goes above beyond the call of duty... Not content to just help us find a house move on, she connected us with a builder, architect project manager to oversee some work we are doing on the Brookline home we purchased through her to turn it into the house of our dreams.”

"Cheryl was incredible--extremely knowledgeable, personal, hard working. She knew exactly what it would take to sell our condo fast every recommendation she had was spot on. She's the best!"

"We think often of you....You were such a big part of such a fond memory including the excitement of finding out we were going to get our house. We just love this house and have been especially grateful to be here this past year." Newton (Buyer)

"It is my real pleasure to give the highest recommendation for Cheryl Cotney. Cheryl completely "got" me -- that I was moving 500 miles from my home of 40 years to a new part of the country to be near my daughter and grandchildren -- and quickly understood the kinds of homes that would appeal to me. Her depth of knowledge about the communities I was considering was invaluable. She was patient and supportive, giving me both the guidance and space I needed to find my new home. And when I found my new home, she did a terrific job in getting me over the finish line. I am thrilled with the result. Cheryl was a total pleasure to work with in every way -- a consummate professional who went above and beyond. Post purchase, she's still advising me on vendors and just about everything else in my new community! I am enormously grateful that I found her." Ellen, Buyer, Brookline

"I was ready to sell my condo, so I called Cheryl and told her I wanted to sell. She took it from there, and got the place ready to show. Put it on the market, had an open house, and within one week she sold it. I was so impressed with everything she did. Any problem that came up, she took care of it at once. Any questions I had, she would answer immediately. But most important to me, she got a better than expected sale price for me. It was a pleasure to work with Cheryl, I wish there were more people like her. She's honest, knowledgeable, responsive, and professional. I'm grateful I had her as my agent." Gerry, Seller, Brighton

"My husband and I couldn’t have been happier with our condo purchase, and Cheryl made the process go SO smoothly. We had just started looking for a condo in the crazy Boston market a few years ago when Cheryl recommended a few open houses. She forwarded on our current condo to us even though it was technically off the market, and we fell in love! Since we were only at the beginning of our house hunt journey, Cheryl helped us through all ins and outs of home buying, and was available anytime for us…we even had seen our condo and purchased it in less than 30 days! I would highly recommend Cheryl for any of your home buying needs! Melissa, Buyer, Brookline

"Cheryl Cortney is tremendously professional and extremely efficient. She was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her to close friends and relatives." Leona, Seller, Auburndale
