With over twenty years of experience in Silicon Valley real estate, I am dedicated to achieving the optimal result. A graduate of San Jose State University, my journey began in high-tech sales, where I excelled as a salesperson, Director of Sales, and corporate contract negotiator for Fortune 500 companies. This background, coupled with my knowledge of residential construction, seamlessly transitioned into my career as a real estate broker.
My expertise encompasses luxury home sellers and buyers, and first-time purchasers. I have overseen diverse real estate projects, such as meticulous remodels, trustee sales with multiple beneficiaries, divorce sales, relocation, investment properties, 1031 exchanges, and senior relocations. I hold a certification as a Historic Home Specialist by the National Trust. Additionally, my certification in interior design enables me to prepare homes and landscapes, focusing on net return on investment.
When you choose to partner with me, you can expect exemplary personal service, integrity, and discretion. I am a real estate broker who personally assists you throughout all aspects of your transaction, rather than referring you to an assistant or junior team member. During my leisure time, I enjoy architecture, tending to my cottage garden, and the natural beauty of California.
Partnering, we can turn your real estate aspirations into reality!
"We can’t say enough good things about Sherry – she has the highest ethics and greatly exceeded our expectations for both selling our previous home and purchasing our existing home. We would without reservation recommend her to our family and friends. For the sale, she provided valuable input on what to fix and how to stage the home to appeal to potential buyers in my community. Most importantly, she negotiated on our behalf and was able to get a RECORD sales price for our neighborhood which greatly exceeded our expectations. For the purchase, Sherry listened to us as we explained what we were looking for and was able to guide us to prospective neighborhoods. In the end, it was through her network that we were able to find the home we ended up purchasing. Again, she provided valuable advice on how to make our offer on the home. Thank you, Sherry, you are the best!" - Joshua S.
"Sherry Hitchcock has mastered her profession. She is the best Realtor my husband and I have ever worked with. Knowledge, diligence, working above and beyond and anticipating what will be best for her clients throughout the transaction is the way Sherry does business. At no point does she become more interested in closing the deal than in doing what is best for her clients. Sherry is responsive, prompt and personable. When our deal required working through the night – my husband was in the States and I in Asia with a 15 hr time difference – Sherry just kept going, presented the offer on two hours of sleep and got us everything we wanted. It was a BEAUTIFUL thing." -- Dana H.
"Years ago, my parents had watched in amazement as Sherry and her husband completely restored a Queen Anne and an ancient barn, dating to the 1860s, in the Old Quad district of Santa Clara. When it came time recently for my parents to sell their 1906 home in Santa Clara, it was a natural fit to have Sherry represent them. Her knowledge of specific architectural details and her background with the local requirements concerning the Mills Act provided the expertise my parents needed to put their home of fifty-four years on the market. But Sherry didn’t stop there; she treated the whole transaction with the care she would have had the house been her own. She kept repeating that she wanted to get the best price for my parents, and she did. To prepare the home for sale within my parents’ limited timeframe, she scheduled and organized all of the details concerning improvements and reports. She also communicated with multiple family members with tact, clarity, and efficiency. My parents were very pleased with the whole outcome. Our family couldn’t have asked for a better representative to guide us through this transition." -- Robert B.
"If you want to purchase OR sell a home, Sherry is absolutely the BEST in the real estate business!! Since 2005, we have bought and sold homes with Sherry. With each transaction, we found the perfect next home, and the closing on the sale of our previous home went smoothly. As a buyer or seller, we have always come away from the closing a “winner.” She knows the business, inside-out, and will make selling/buying a home an enjoyable experience – not the stressful one that often accompanies such a major event. Based upon our experiences with Sherry, we can confidently proclaim that choosing her as our real estate agent was, and continues to be, a great decision!" -- Vijay D.
"I’ve bought and sold a number of properties over the years, and had good experiences and bad with real estate agents. My experience with Sherry was by far the best. She helped me get through some difficulties with getting my property on the market and was helpful and supportive throughout. Her marketing strategy was right on target and the property sold in three days with multiple offers. Best of all, she is warm and welcoming and, potential buyers clearly felt that she really cared about them. Thanks Sherry!" -- Christopher K.
"We have worked with Sherry for many years. She has helped us sell homes for family members as well as the recent purchase of my own home. Sherry’s knowledge of the market is better than any other agent I’ve ever worked with and Sherry know how to get the deal done in this very competitive market." -- Mike R.
"Sherry is an absolutely superior agent. My wife and I were impressed with her experience, accessibility, and commitment to going above and beyond. She not only helped us buy the right home, but she also took a keen interest in helping us make the transition to the new house with all that entails (painting etc.) after the transaction closed. I highly recommend her!" -- Jim A.
