"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."


"Cheryl took control of this listing by giving us detailed information on the properties current and future value. She discussed her strategy for marketing this property and was able to get 2 offers within the first 5 days of the listing. Her expertise is unsurpassed and I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking to buy or sell."


"Cheryll is a great real estate agent. She helped us buy a new condo and sell our old one in 2018. The purchase was somewhat stressful, but nothing compared to the sale. Cheryll navigated the tricky circumstances with our old condo sale and got us the best possible deal. She has great local knowledge and is well respected by other real estate agents."


"If you do not want to read the whole review, simply know this: what an amazing experience this has been, start to finish! Cheryll will impress you from the very minute you meet her and you can stop searching for an agent!
Cheryll's knowledge of everything related to the housing market was beyond impressive. Beginning with an understanding of how the housing market works in the Chicago area, analyzing the general economy as well as the market trends gave us a comprehensive picture of both when to put the home on the market and how to price the house. Because of her advice to be patient and wait until the spring, we gained a substantial amount more in terms of pricing our house. Her advice on fixes to the house, how to stage the house and how to time putting the house on the market led to selling within 24 hours!
On the buying side, her advice and direction was immensely helpful and we ended up with our perfect house in our most desired neighborhood. She was consistently patient and calm when we were full of questions and anxious about finding the right home. Her humor and ability to connect with us made the process enjoyable throughout.
Further, she brings the "dream team"! Her go-to team of photographer, attorney and home inspector were all top-notch and made the stress of selling, buying, inspecting, closing and moving feel nearly non-existent at times.""


"Plain and simple, Cheryll was the best. As first time home buyers my wife and I went into the buying process with lots of questions and plenty of nerves about making such a big permanent purchase. Cheryll helped squash those nerves more than we could've hoped for. We never felt like we were being sold and instead, we were getting an education on the whole process. While in sure we had many, Cheryll never made us feel like our questions were dumb. It was quite the opposite and she encouraged any and all questions. She was personable, relatable, available and just an overall good person. We had many laughs throughout the process and always felt like we could be ourselves. We can't thank Cheryll enough and I'd recommend her 100%. She was BEST!!!"



"Cheryll is very professional and is dedicated to her field and her clients. She never pressures you to look at something that does not suit your needs. She will assist you with movers, inspectors, and attorneys if need be, making a somewhat daunting undertaking simple. We would definitely recommend her and use her again."


"Professional, realistic, spot on regarding the market, timing and pricing. A pleasure to work with & know."

"Worked with Cheryll on purchase and sale of our last home. She really knows the Chicago Market, the ins & outs of the realty game and the art of negotiation."


"We could not have asked for a better agent than Cheryll. She helped us navigate our first home purchase with incredible expertise, honestly, and support. It was clear that she was going to be there for us until we found our dream home. As an inexperienced home buyer I would overlook issues and Cheryll was always so helpful to educate me about potential problems, which I know helped us dodge many bullets which have ended up being very expensive. Once we found our dream house Cheryll was incredible during the negotiations and made sure we got the best deal we could. If you are still looking for an agent your search should stop with Cheryll. There is no one better and she even somehow manages to make this stressful and time consuming experience fun. We highly recommend her!"


"I'm very excited and extremely satisfied by the outcomes of our common work with Cheryll. I always felt her strong professional attitude and assistance in regards of my purchase. The most expressive things there is not any chance for unaddressed items either on initial stage or after closing day. Seems, I've got more than just assistance in the search of desired property. Each step towards final transaction was throughly accompanied and explained. We with my wife and our kids have got a joy and amazing home. It was pleasure to be managed in this direction by Cheryll's extensive experience."

"We were referred to Cheryll Sullivan through a family member, and we couldn't be more happy we decided to choose her as our realtor on the purchase of our first home. There are so many realtors out there, but Cheryll was not only a realtor, but a patient teacher throughout the entire process. It is such a large decision, and she took the time to educate us on every step so that we felt comfortable and ready when we found the perfect home. It was so refreshing that she didn't want to just sell us a house and close the deal, Rather, she had our best interest in mind to ensure we didn't make any choices that we would regret down the road. Once we found our dream house, Cheryll made sure we had the best team behind us by giving us referrals for our attorney, mortgage lender, even our locksmith! Overall, it was a an extremely enjoyable, positive experience and we feel confident and SO excited about the purchase of our first home. We are looking forward to working with Cheryll for any future realtor needs, but who knows, we may live in this house forever because we are so in love with it! :)"


"We have bought and sold numerous houses and we have never had such a great experience as we had with Cheryll. She is knowledgeable, professional, personable and above all, she cares about her clients. If we ever have another home to buy or sell in an area where Cheryll could serve us, we would never even consider working with anyone else. She s a top-notch professional and we were very lucky to have her representing us and advocating for us throughout the process. It was a pleasure."


"I was contacted by Cheryll Sullivan in response to my looking online for distressed properties in Glenview, IL. I own a few other investment properties, but Cheryll was by far the most interested in making sure that our interests were covered while going through this process with a government owned home. That included the original offer price allowing for negotiation room, to being sure all the utilities were turned back on for the inspection so we knew what condition the property was really in. We would highly recommend Cheryll to others as well as use her again on our next investment purchase."


"A retired realtor friend said if she were moving she would use Cheryll and that was good enough for us. She has used her extensive business background to analyze the housing market in a different way than any realtor I have ever talked to. She reassured us that although we did not know what we really wanted it would clarify itself over time and she was 100% correct. We learned so much and our wants and needs evolved as the process unfolded. We are now going to list our house and look forward to Cheryll's expertise and friendship in making the process less overwhelming. I would recommend Cheryll to anyone who wants a true professional with a truly big heart."


"Really enjoyed working with Cheryll. She was reliable, professional, well-informed and very patient with us throughout the process. Her experience and expertise came in very handy throughout the process. Very thorough and very professional. Would/will highly recommend Cheryl to others looking for housing in Chicagoland."

"Cheryll was amazing to work with. Not only is she a consummate professional, but she always had our best interest at heart; even if it was simply talking us out of a rushed decision or telling us to sleep on it a night.We would recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home as the entire experience was excellent!Dave and Cynthia"

""When my wife and I first met Cheryll, it was at the home we eventually purchased. We were expecting to be shown the house, and move on. We had met several other agents who fell short of our expectations and expected this encounter to be the same. Thankfully, this was not at all our experience. From the start, Cheryll presented herself with a calm confidence. Her emphasis was on education and transparency. Being first-time homebuyers, our experience was limited to hearsay and what we had educated ourselves with from books such as "Home Buying for Dummies". Cheryll's approach to our search for a home transferred calm and confidence to us. There was no hesitancy in our decision to work with her, and it remains a solid decision. She expertly referred us to a mortgage broker and real estate attorney who shared her approach and who she felt would be a good fit for us, and suddenly we were surrounded by the dream team of home buying. Purchasing a home became an educated reality, far removed from the initial "we think we can do this based on what we know so far" we started with. Cheryll was present and approachable every step of the way. When presented with a question she didn't know the answer to, she found it. When a problem arose, she conquered it. Whether by phone or email, we knew every detail of every step of our home buying process, and understood each decision we made. Cheryll's dedication to our success cannot be adequately described here. "Above and beyond" does not begin to do justice to her efforts on our behalf. Her aptitude for the real estate market combined with a sincere desire to do the best she can for her clients is what sets her apart. Family and friends who met Cheryll while with us at various steps in our home buying process echoed our recognition of her humble superiority in today's market. My wife and I are completely satisfied with our experience, our home, and our decision to work with Cheryll. We will without hesitation refer her to others, and work with her again ourselves in the future. Cheryll was and continues to be an invaluable asset in our decision to purchase a home. Whether you are buying or selling a home, you owe it to yourself to consider Cheryll Sullivan when choosing an agent. You will not regret your decision." - Evanston"
