    Cheryl was such an amazing agent! We all know home buying can be stressful, but Cheryl guided us through each step and made the process seem much easier. We could count on her to answer all of our questions, and believe me, we had so many! We were able to close on our house extremely fast and we are very happy with how the entire process went.

    Mavjuda gave CHERYL 5 stars out of 5
    My husband and I were very fortunate to have Cheryl as our Real Estate Agent. She is very knowledgeable, professional, very resourceful, expert of her field. Cheryl went above and beyond throughout the entire process of buying our new house and selling our existing house. She was available and prompt to answer any question or concerns even at late evening hours. Cheryl shared her knowledge and honest opinion about the locations, houses we were looking etc , she made whole purchasing process very smooth, explained every step in details and now we are a very happy homeowners. She gave great recommendations to get our existing house prepared for sale. When she listed our house on the market - it went under Contract the next day, with the closing day within next 30 days!!! Wow, it was very impressive! She is so resourceful, she referred us to an amazing Attorney- and the Lender, I cannot speak highly enough about both of them. She also referred us to a lot of professionals like electrician, plumbers, handyman, landscaping etc whose services were great, and that helped us a lot when getting our house ready for sale and settling in our new home. We will definitely recommend Cheryl to our family and friends . From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Cheryl so very much for your passionate work and dedication. Mavjuda and Emad

    Brian gave CHERYL 5 stars out of 5
    If there was an option for 6 stars I would pick it! Cheryl went above and beyond throughout the entire process of selling my house and buying a new house also. Her referrals for an attorney and lender were amazing. She was always there to answer all of my questions. I have already referred her two 2 other people in my subdivision because she is a rockstar.
    Deanna gave CHERYL 5 stars out of 5
    Cheryl was available, patient and dedicated to making sure we found a new home that met our needs. Just as important, she made sure that our current home was 'show ready' and gave us great ideas to help our home sell fast! Cheryl is attentive to those little details and professional. Beyond 5 stars in our opinion!
    Joshua gave CHERYL 5 stars out of 5
    Simply put, Cheryl is a consummate professional, and while one has no control over the market, it is always advisable to bring the appropriate 'artillery' to the 'battle.' Cheryl is the big gun, and I would hire her again!
    Nathan gave CHERYL 5 stars out of 5
    Working with Cheryl was a very great experience. My wife and I are first time buyers, and Cheryl gave us so much info and walked us through the whole buying process. She responded very quickly to any of our questions throughout the process and was super helpful. Cheryl is very friendly and knowledgeable as well. We found the perfect home for us within just a couple of weeks! Would recommend Cheryl to anyone looking to purchase a home.

    Cheryl did a great job helping us sell our home to relocate in a rough time for our family. She prayed with me, brought in an amazing photographer, gave of her time for open houses, helped us out by being there for water meter switching, etc. She was a calm reassurance to my anxiousness and helped things go smoothly along the way. Many thanks!!
    Emily gave CHERYL 5 stars out of 5
    Cheryl helped my fiancé and I find and buy our first house. She always had our best interest in mind and truly wanted us to have a home that we loved and could re sell later. She warned us about things to be cautious of and any red flags that she saw in any of the homes we looked at. Cheryl also responded quickly to any questions we had and showed us any house we wanted to see in a timely fashion. She was patient with us, on time to all of our meet ups and helped us through the entire process. She's the best!
    Kim gave CHERYL 5 stars out of 5
    Cheryl worked harder than anyone could have to make sure our home by the time we needed it sold. She kept us in the loop during the entire process! She was remarkable and I would recommend her to anyone!
    Jerry gave CHERYL 5 stars out of 5
    I have worked with Cheryl Adams for several years now helping provide mortgage loans on the finance side for her customers. There are many realtors out there but Cheryl is part of the few that take their time to explain the process and set realistic expectations for her customers. If there is a property that she thinks has issues and would not recommend to purchase she will inform her clients and will not hesitate to tell them not to buy that property. That is the type of character that Cheryl has and her customers know it and continue to give her new referrals because she is not after the quick sale but a long term business relationship with her customers. You will be very happy to have Cheryl as your realtor! Jerry Mlinar, Loan Officer, Fairway Mortgage
    Cassi gave CHERYL 5 stars out of 5
    We consider ourselves extremely blessed to have had Cheryl as our realtor! She's very friendly, so easy to talk to and gives great advice about anything related to the home buying process. Cheryl was extremely accommodating to our family's circumstances, which we will be forever grateful for! Her dedication to finding our perfect forever home was neverending, throughout the eight months we were looking! She made the whole house buying process so easy for us, always in communication about anything and everything. Truly could not have asked for a more personable, professional and dedicated real estate agent than Cheryl. My whole family adores her!
    Lauryn gave CHERYL 5 stars out of 5
    Working with Cheryl has been nothing short of an incredible experience! Cheryl helped us find our perfect home after a year of searching and diligence on her end. She was more than patient as we reviewed every home, helping us thinking clearly about each property. Her depth of wisdom, experience, and care so evident to us in this trying process of purchasing our first home! Aside from being an amazing realtor, I also have the privilege of working with Cheryl as a Corporate Sponsor for Harvest Christian Academy. Cheryl is attentive to detail, listens to the needs of our families and always delivers and amazing experience. She also has used her donation to contribute to various reading programs at the Academy that has helped many students. We would recommend Cheryl over and over again!
    Monique gave CHERYL 5 stars out of 5
    Our family had to relocate across states, we hadn't "shopped around" the area we were moving to, Cheryl did all the leg work for us. She gave us plenty of options within our budget, when we narrowed it down to three and she "walked" us through each home virtually. We found exactly what we needed! She was very professional, friendly, and gave careful consideration to details. If ever I need to relocate, she's my first call! Thank you Cheryl for helping and caring for our family during the moving process from beginning to end!
    Carrie gave CHERYL 5 stars out of 5
    My husband and I were first time home buyers and Cheryl walked us through every step of the way with kindness and a high level of knowledge. Thinking about our time with her, what stands out the most is how responsive she was to our needs and questions. She is always a phone call or a text away! Cheryl has clearly been in the business for a long time as she knew well what she was doing and had wonderful connections with a great attorney and loan officer that we used, as well. I would reccomend her to help you find your home!
    Jenna gave CHERYL 5 stars out of 5

    Chris & Linda gave CHERYL 5 stars out of 5
    After moving my father to memory care, I needed to sell his home. I called Cheryl and she promptly set up a meeting with me at the house at a convenient time for me. She brought neighborhood comps and helped me determine the condition of the home. She spent a lot of time with me, walking me through different options, and offering the help me In whatever way would be most beneficial to me. Within a few weeks, I had a private cash offer on the house... and the comps Cheryl gave to me helped me determine the best price for the house. Cheryl was kind, professional, and her advice was so appreciated. Even though I did not wind up using her to complete the sale, she was genuinely happy for me and I will definitely use her for all of my future real estate questions and needs.

    Drew gave CHERYL 5 stars out of 5
    Cheryl is one of my favorite people! When I first met Cheryl, she was very friendly and personable. I could tell she was knowledgeable about real estate and had a passion for it. She especially made sure to take care of her clients as her top priority. I attended an informative seminar about the process of buying a home and lending options. Cheryl explained all first steps and walked us through the process of buying a home. She also told us all the little details we needed to know and the approximate costs to plan for. I feel prepared when I will look to buy a home thanks to Cheryl. I highly recommend partnering with Cheryl and I very much look forward to working with her in my future.
    Carl gave CHERYL 5 stars out of 5
    Cheryl is a fantastic realtor who truly cares for her clients. Her desire to find that perfect home for you, one that fits all of your needs, is to be praised in a field where many realtors are more in it for themselves. Cheryl's responsiveness was extremely quick - we would want to see homes that day and she would arrange all of them to happen! Her market knowledge and attention to detail during the negotiation process was valued by us, a new family to the area. The entire buying process felt effortless, thanks to Cheryl's personality, professionalism and expertise. We highly recommend Cheryl Adams for your next home transaction! Our next move will most certainly involve Cheryl!

    Cheryl was so informative and easy to work with. She took care of every detail and made the buying and selling process a great experience. Gave great tips on making our house more marketable and helping navigate finding the right home for our family, no matter how many homes we asked to see. As we were looking for homes, she didn't just let us in, but also looked with a critical eye and pointed out things we might have missed.

    Cheryl's knowledge, experience, and passion for both people and selling houses is what made buying my first home seem effortless.

    Laura gave CHERYL 5 stars out of 5
    When it comes to buying a house, my husband and I have always been nervous to even think about the process. Last fall we attended a workshop with Cheryl Adams who blew us away on her knowledge, attention to detail, and expertise. She was able to answer questions and confidently share information that truly helped us see the process in a whole new way. She walked us through what we needed to do to prepare for that chapter of life. We are excited to the day when we can call Cheryl and work with her to find our first house! Cheryl is personable, has an amazing work ethic, is professional, and truly cares about the people she works with!

    Cheryl made putting our house on the market so easy. Quick, thorough, knowledgeable, and professional--everything you want in a realtor and more. She helped us price our house right to attract serious buyers. And she sold our home in less than 30 days--in the winter! We commend her to you.

    Cheryl is the best realtor out there, truly!! She was very insightful and knowledgeable about the home buying process. She helped us narrow down our choices by giving us a lot of guidance as we bought our first home we had no idea how to go about it.

    We listed our home with Cheryl and couldn't be more pleased with the professional service she gave us. She did a market analysis and guided us when it came to pricing our home competitively. She w as more than willing to do Open Houses which brought in many potential buyers. She made helpful recommendations about staging our home. She was always easy to reach by phone, text or email and would keep us up to date with feedback on the showings we had. Our home sold in 3 weeks and we are grateful to Cheryl for her part in making it happen. We would highly recommend her
    Rick & Lyn gave CHERYL 5 stars out of 5
    We would highly recommend Cheryl to anyone!! Cheryl came fully prepared for our first meeting together. She had done her research of our area and had prepared a packet for us with information that was needed as we were planning to sell our home. She had good input and considered and listened to our input as well. She was always prompt in returning calls and texts and kept us fully informed throughout the process. Our home was put on the market late on a Saturday and was completed the next Tuesday with a full sale price offer that we accepted. She is pleasure to be around, loves her job and loves helping people which was fully evident in in the way she served us. We would not hesitate in using her in the future.

    My husband and I really enjoyed working with Cheryl in the search to find our perfect home! We had looked at more than 15 houses, and Cheryl was beyond patient with us and really held our hand the entire process. This was our second home and we wanted to make sure we weren't just settling. We never felt pressured or rushed. Cheryl really took her time to explain everything to us, showed us numerous houses, and really allowed us to trust her along the way. We were successful in finding a perfect home for us, the very last one we looked at. Cheryl is very trustworthy, patient, professional and caring when it comes to the home searches. I highly recommend using her in your search for your house! She will help you succeed!

    Kathy gave CHERYL 5 stars out of 5
    Cheryl is awesome--she expertly helped me sell my home (major downsize) and purchase a town home. I needed more than the usual "hand-holding", and Cheryl guided me and truly worked "with me" through each phase of the sale and purchase, in order to achieve the best outcome for my family. Her marketing skills are fantastic - house sold in five days at the price point we felt the house was worth! She referred me to an outstanding real estate attorney and contractor, which totally took the stress off of me. She is professional, extremely knowledgeable, experienced and pleasant and communicated (with me and everyone else involved) every step of the way. Choose Cheryl for your real estate needs and you WILL BE VERY HAPPY you did!
    Carol gave CHERYL 5 stars out of 5
    When we couldn't find a suitable fit for our "must have" of 4 bedrooms, Cheryl was creative in revising the search to a 3-bedroom with an option of finishing the basement for a 4th bedroom. We were able to find a home in 2 days! Cheryl went the extra mile in helping us gain access to the house before close, to get estimates from contractors. Cheryl is committed and driven to do her very best for her clients!
    Dave & Michelle gave CHERYL 5 stars out of 5
    My husband and I decided it was time to downsize our lives, and before we were even ready to list our home, we knew we had to start a search for a town home community that would fit our family, and Cheryl was more than willing to help us in that search! Cheryl was always so accommodating in our search, and could usually show us a property we found within a matter of hours. She was also not afraid to go in with any offer we asked her to, proving to have great negotiating skills! We loved working with her, and would recommend her to everyone!

    Kent & Nancy gave CHERYL 5 stars out of 5
    When Cheryl took over our listing we had already moved out of town. She not only had a lot of good suggestions for making our house more appealing, but also did the work involved since we couldn?t. We were very pleased with the way she marketed our house, negotiated the contract and followed through on all the details.
    Jonathan gave CHERYL 5 stars out of 5
    Cheryl is a top-notch real estate agent and always on the ball. We work together on client files daily and I can barely keep up with her. She is professional and operates with her clients' best interest in mind. Cheryl is only capable of providing her honest opinion which sets her apart from many realtors. She never takes part in the bait-and-switch scheme where a realtor tells a seller the property value estimate that the seller wants to hear just to get the listing (even though market data does not support that value). Buyers love working with her because she listens to them and never forces them to follow her own opinion. If you want an honest and hard-working professional, then Cheryl is the real estate agent for you. I know that my clients are in good hands with her. -Jonathan S. Pope, Real Estate Attorney
    Jerry & Kate gave CHERYL 5 stars out of 5
