She's a pro and a pleasure to work with!
Cheryl just helped me through the purchase of my first home. She is an excellent advisor and strong advocate. I recommend her whole-heartedly! I wanted a single family home in San Francisco, but had a modest budget. I had doubts that I could find a house I could afford, but Cheryl was unendingly optimistic and encouraging (but never pressured me). Ultimately, Cheryl helped me buy my house in the city. Cheryl has an excellent understanding of the SF market, and she really does focus on finding the right property for her clients. She guided me away from more expensive properties, when she was concerned I was trying to convince myself it was right. Once we found my house, she gave great advice on price, and negotiated a significant reduction. Cheryl's primary focus is not the amount of her commission, but the satisfaction of her clients. The real estate paperwork was made easy because Cheryl uses Docusign. Everything was online, easy to review and quick to sign. Cheryl is incredibly patient and responsive, and answered my questions promptly (and sometimes multiple times). I don't know how she remains so available; I felt like I was her only client. She continues to be a great partner with excellent recommendations for plumbers, electricians, etc. I couldn't be happier with my purchase, and I give Cheryl full credit. She's a pro and a pleasure to work with!

If you need an agent look no further
My property search began in 2003. Several real estate agents and years later, I was making no progress. Most of my weekends were spent touring open houses and after a while it grew tedious and I stopped my search some time in 2008. My brother dropped by a property that Cheryl was showing. He was impressed and encouraged me to give her a call. I contacted Cheryl in early 2009 and found her to be very professional and methodical. After the initial meeting, I felt that things would work out this time. She was very mindful and helpful during the search. Whenever I found a property of interest, she would tell me the conditions of the property as she sees it, she would come up with helpful hints, market research and the ball park figure of how much the property is worth, which made it easier for me to make decisions. My job entails a lot of traveling, both domestic and international. That, however, does not stop me from putting in offers for properties of interest, as she introduced me to an electronic signature process known as Docu sign. The Docu sign process made the offer process easier. In my absence, Cheryl was nice enough to work with my teenage niece (who was filling in for me) and patiently explained all the terminology and answered any questions she might have had. Cheryl truly is one of a kind. She has everything a superb agent should have. Patience, knowledge, consideration, trustworthiness, negotiation skills etc. you name it, she has it all. Besides, she has great home inspectors too. What I admired about Cheryl is her way of treating clients. She will stand by you and lead you through the complicated home buying process. She considers her client like a family member. If she thinks the property is worth less than the offer amount she will inform you right away. Her advice on the value of the property, to my knowledge, has never been wrong. My home buying process was more complicated than others. Although, the final decision rested with me, I cared about the opinions of my family which made matters worse as everyone had their own opinion. It made things more difficult for Cheryl during my property search, but that does not seem to bother her. I am a first time home buyer with no experience in almost everything in the real estate field, and I let Cheryl lead me. Home buying process was like a breeze. Last but not the least, because of her excellent negotiating skills, she was able to bring down the price of the property to be within our target range. Not only she helped me get the house we want but also ended my house hunting process and I can now do some other chores during weekends. To all future home buyers out there if you need an agent look no further. Contact Cheryl and you will soon find out what I mean. If I have another opportunity to buy a house, my agent will be no one else but Cheryl.

I am deeply appreciative for her help, guidance, professionalism
I am deeply appreciative for the help, guidance, professionalism, and friendship that Cheryl bestowed on me during my real estate search. Cheryl is truly spectacular at her job. What impressed me initially about Cheryl was her depth of knowledge and her patience. She was the first real estate agent who really took the time to explain the complex process to me. She also never made me feel silly for re-asking a question. Cheryl managed to always coach, guide, and explain - wonderfully comforting and supportive traits to find in a real estate agent. Cheryl also stands out for her sheer organization abilities. She kept me updated daily on the neighborhoods I was interested in, but she also kept me abreast of the trends in SF, other major cities, and nationally. By helping me to build my own understanding, I believe Cheryl helped me to really come to a meaningful and sound decision on the property I purchased. The market is tough out there - most of the properties I looked at had multiple and all cash offers. The process certainly became daunting at times, but Cheryl was always there with realistic encouragement and words of wisdom. I just got the keys to my new condo and I couldn't be more thrilled. I know Cheryl will continue to help me by connecting me to her wonderful network of service providers and I feel totally at ease with all of her suggestions. She made me feel so cared for and supported as a first time, single homeowner and I cannot recommend her enough.

Cheryl's website says, "I do more" and indeed she does
We bought our home through Cheryl and she has continued to be an incredible resource for us years after the sale, so we would highly recommend Cheryl's services. We are experienced home buyers (having owned 6 other homes) so we knew the process, but Cheryl helped us get our house when the market was very competitive, with multiple bids, where getting the house ultimately came down to the experience of a good realtor, thus making all of the difference. (we live on the peninsula with one of the best school districts, so it's a highly sought after area). We've always depended on her for various contacts for contractors, inspectors, and the like. (all great contractors too) She recently helped us very quickly find a very specialized plumber to come out on short notice after calling countless plumbing services who did not perform this type of service, and was very helpful and knowledgeable about the entire process, and what we might need to pass inspection with the city as well. Cheryl's website says, "I do more" and indeed she does. She is a wonderful Realtor, who I can say we would highly recommend to anyone who is looking to buy, or sell a home. We will certainly use Cheryl's services in the future as well!

Cheryl did a fantastic job
Cheryl did a fantastic job with my recent condominium purchase in the Bay Area. She made several recommendations regarding various inspections that during previous condo purchases other agents had never recommended, including an in depth analysis of the financial condition of the HOA. The seller became difficult after some of the inspections, yet Cheryl provided a very personable and professional response that resulted in a final purchase at a very reasonable and fair price. I would highly recommend Cheryl for your real estate needs.
