Clients are saying:
"Cheryll’s expertise and integrity immediately earned our trust and confidence for my mom to purchase a condo in her favorite location. We anticipate a well-priced and quick sale for my mom’s home as well! Cheryll’s communication skills and attention to detail are invaluable throughout the buy/sell process. Her professional resource list is a treasure trove of vendors associated with moving or staging a home."
"Cheryll is a superb agent. We are so grateful to her.
She taught the ins and outs of the North Shore real estate market, visited dozens of properties with us, and left us knowing a lot more about the kind of house we want and don't want.
She also is a great negotiator. She was able to accurately predict the sellers' reactions to our offers, which enabled us to negotiate wisely and effectively. Our sellers were a bit difficult (isn't that always the case?) -- at the last minute, after the price negotiation was complete and everyone was ready to sign the contract, they sprang clauses on us such as stipulating that defective house items (i.e. windows) were to be "as-is" and refusing to provide any allowances after the inspection revealed a number of shortcoming in the electrical system, flooring, insulation, HVAC, and other items. Cheryll negotiated well for us and gave us realistic advice. Based on her advice, we held out and were able to receive seller credits in the thousands of dollars for these defects.
She is very selective in whom she works with, and the lawyers, home inspectors, mortgage agents, and contractors she recommended were superb.
Finally, Cheryll is very responsive on email or phone, and very insightful in terms of understanding our specific housing needs as a family.
In sum, Cheryll is a great realtor and we are grateful to have found her."
"Cheryll is very knowledgeable. She is extremely professional, diligent and has tremendous attention to details. She provided us with invaluable guidance. I would highly recommend Cheryl for both the buy and sell side."
"Cheryll is outstanding. She knows the markets is very through and very professional. It is great to have a realtor who understands what you want and is always on your side. I would highly recommended her to anyone."
"Cheryll is extremely professional and knowledgeable and was extremely helpful in helpful in helping us find the perfect house for us. She also made an almost overwhelming task so much easier by suggesting movers, attorneys, and inspectors but never being pushy. We are using her to sell our house too and suggest her to everyone."
