"Sheryl has relevant knowledge of the local market and she has an extensive financial background that made this experience successful. We would highly recommend Sheryl. Her style and professionalism are unmatched."



"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. My husband and I have sold homes in the past, and we've never had such a positive experience. If you're looking for an exceptional real estate agent for buying or selling, stop right here because you just found her."



"Sheryl's intuition and ability to steer decisions in a particular direction is truly a gift. Before choosing her to be our realtor we talked to a few others but I immediately trusted her as someone who was extremely professional and capable. Our house presented some challenges and she never wavered or gave up. Thank you again Sheryl in helping us move on to the next phase of our life."



"Sheryl Graff is a true professional and treats customers as true customers (hard to find these days). She delivers exceptional results. She has my full recommendation. I would be delighted to serve as a reference.

We had a particularly complex corporate relocation which she handled with tremendous expertise, coordinating with a number of different seller, buyer and 3rd parties to ensure all went well. She and her team were on top of every detail, anticipating aspects of our home sale that truly demonstrated deep and sophisticated market knowledge and experience. Our relocation required a lot of flexibility and willingness to adapt and adjust several times (understatement). Sheryl did so with understanding and patience, keeping everything on track along the way.

Sheryl knows the market, truly understands customers unique needs and is among the most effective real estate professionals with whom we have ever worked. In choosing Sheryl and her team, you will be incredibly well served."

"Sheryl did a fabulous job from start to finish!"



"Sheryl was our agent as both sellers as well as buyers. Her insight and recommendations were spot on the sell side and her patience and guidance and really narrowing in on what we wanted on the buy side made the acquisition process delightful. She accommodated our schedule at every turn which was important given our commitments. She also provided tremendous insight into the communities where we were looking to buy in terms of neighborhoods, schools, quality of life etc. Our strongest endorsement of Sheryl is that she develops camaraderie with her clients and is there to facilitate the process. The area where we eventually purchased in Lake Forest was one we would not have investigated without Sheryl's insight and we are fortunate to have purchased a gem. We would enthusiastically recommend Sheryl to anyone looking to buy or sell on the North Shore of Chicago and if we ever move again (hope not) , would turn to her as our first choice to represent us."



"We were initially reluctant to hire Sheryl, as we were concerned she had not sold any homes in our Zip Code. However, we had a good feeling about her and decided to hire her as our listing broker. Needless to say it was a great decision. Ms. Graff analytical skills, as well as, her comfort in using technology to advertise our home to the masses was instrumental in ultimately selling our home in an extremely challenging market for Million Dollar homes in Lake County. Her recommendation to use professional "Stagers" was key in ensuring that our home presented itself in the most positive light. Most importantly, Sheryl was a pleasure to work with. Her calm demeanor made the stressful process of selling a home somewhat manageable. Ms. Graff's negotiating skills were highlighted when she engaged with two competing offers to maximize the Sales price of our home.

For anyone looking for representation in selling your home, you would be making a wise choice by hiring Sheryl Graff as your Listing Agent"



"Sheryl was very attentive to my needs. My home had been on the market for some time and I was frustrated with the lack of feedback and communication. Sheryl was very communicative and involved in every step of the listing and selling process. She made good recommendations regarding things to sell my home, even if I was resistive to spending money at the time. One of the things I wanted was for my realtor to be present during showings and Sheryl was very willing to make this happen.

Sheryl has a financial backgound, so her analysis of the local market was driven from hard data and not a finger in the wind approach. In addition, her agency was the most complete for marketing my home using a variety of media outlets, which I was seeking.

I would recommend her to others selling their homes."

"When my wife and me chose Gail last year to be our broker, it was on a whim based on the house that she sold across the street from us.
From the first call, we could tell right away from the questions that she asked, that Sheryl was going to be our broker. Sheryl was professional, she had a great team to prep and stage our house and was committed throughout, in both selling our house and helping to find us a new place to live.
All in all, a very positive experience. If you want to sell your home, Sheryl will make it happen.
Thank you Sheryl for everything."
