"Beyond Sheryl's level of Real Estate expertise, she has a calming presence that made it easier for us to get through the inevitable emotional ups and downs that occurred in the process of selling our home. She has our strongest recommendation."
"I was searching for a home for my mother close to my residence for many years. My mother is very selective and was not willing to move into just any home. Sheryl showed us homes for over a year and patiently notified me of any new listings which fit my mother's criteria. Sheryl finally found a home that my mother was willing to move to. She was there for us every step of the way including negotiations, inspection, attorney review, final inspection and closings. Sherly's recommendations and market analysis were beneficial to us and she always has the best interest of her clients. I would highly recommend Sheryl, she is terrific!"
"Sheryl was great! She was responsive, knowledgeable, and negotiated a fair price for our purchase. We are new to IL, and Sheryl was extremely instrumental in facilitating the contract and inspection processes. In the event that we decide to move in the future, we will be definitely listing our house with Sheryl. Highly recommended!"
"Sheryl Graff sold my house in a week! It was a pocket listing and we received multiple offers because of Sheryl's contacts and knowledge. We knew from the day we met her that she was the right person. She knew exactly how to price our home. She spent a lot of time with us - we had a lot of questions and she answered every last one. She's patient and so easy to talk to. She found us a great rental - it was so important to her that we feel comfortable. Sheryl genuinely cares about you through the entire process.
