In 1999 while working as a global account executive for a major international airline in Chicago, Cheryl relocated to Half Moon Bay in order to be closer to Boeing and her other west coast accounts. With her extensive background in client relations, contract negotiation, customer service and marketing, real estate was a natural fit.
In years of experience working with clients, Cheryl understands that the first and most important step in building a relationship is an ability to listen. Only after truly hearing and understanding the goals, apprehensions, aspirations and of course the dreams of one’s prospective clients, can one successfully develop and implement a successful strategy for finding the perfect home. Similarly, sellers have very emotional connections to their homes, and it’s imperative that the seller’s agent has not only a clear understanding of the seller’s objectives, but also how emotional and disruptive this time can be in a seller’s life. Navigating these complex issues while at the same time guiding and supporting her clients in their decision-making is one of Cheryl’s strengths.
Whether representing sellers or buyers, integrity, unending patience, and a relentless pursuit of her client’s goals are the qualities Cheryl brings to the table.
Compass is a perfect fit for Cheryl and her business philosophy. Working together with a group of consummate professionals who enjoy a market share of over 70% of sales on the coastside, our clients benefit from our “collective efforts”. In addition, Cheryl has also developed a great network of ethical and professional local inspectors, lenders and other contractors who can assist with all kinds of needs that pop up during a transaction. You can expect Cheryl to be present for each inspection, and each open house whenever possible so that potential buyers can be screened and followed.
Attention to detail makes the entire process run smoothly. Superior service and a willingness to be personally involved at every level makes all the difference.
“My husband and I recently purchased a home in Ocean Colony in Half Moon Bay. Our realtor was Cheryl Stockton. We had worked with two other realtors in the Half Moon Bay area, and neither could hold a candle to Cheryl. She is extremely knowledgeable about the market, has an excellent sense of appropriate pricing and ran countless analytics for us on different houses. She is very responsive to client calls and emails and always got back to us immediately. As both a resident of Ocean Colony and a member of the Compass team (which lists many houses in Ocean Colony), Cheryl has information on houses coming onto the market in that neighborhood well before many other realtors in other agencies. Finally, she has great contacts in the remodel industry and was able to have a general contractor with us at least 5 or 6 times when we looked at houses that needed work and found an exceptionally good decorator for us when we bought the house. Overall I give her an A+. Maureen Gorman ”
