Client Reviews

Top Qualities:  Negotiation, Knowledge
I would like to take this moment to express how satisfied I am with Cheryl’s excellent service in assisting my husband and finding our home.  Cheryl is a very persistent, up front, honest, go getter, looking out for you, her client, with all that we got the best service with my third home purchase, then my first two. I always felt at ease with Cheryl and trusted her to look out for our best interests.  I called her so many times with so many questions, and she was always there answering her phone with the best attitude and professionalism.  And when she wasn’t able to answer my calls, she always returned my calls, and or texts.  And knowledge of the real estate industry far exceeded my expectations.

I can honestly say, Cheryl, you are the best real estate agent I have ever worked with!  I hope you will make many future customers as satisfied as we were/are with our home buying experience. Finally the third time we bought, it was the best purchasing experience.  If I had to do it over again I would not choose any one else but you Cheryl.  Guida and Darrel Thomas  April 2104

Cheryl was invaluable throughout the entire sales process. She was responsive to my questions and always willing to provide support when I asked. She even staged my home to make it a bit more attractive (I had alreadsty moved out). Her honesty, real estate knowledge, and integrity were truly appreciated and made the sale of my home easy.  Steve Lilley February 2014

I absolutely recommend Cheryl States to anyone looking to buy or sell their home with an experienced Realtor. I've had the pleasure of working with Cheryl on both a short sale and a new home purchase, and am thrilled with the results. She stays on top of the latest data and market trends, and her knowledge of the Folsom and Sacramento-area real estate markets is unmatched. Cheryl is a savvy and expert negotiator both with other agents and with banks, keeping her client's interest top of mind at all times. Best of all, she's an excellent and responsive communicator: alerting her clients as to the status and next steps in the process, willing to share knowledge and answering every question promptly. Cheryl is a consummate real estate professional and makes the process of buying or selling a home easier than I ever imagined it could be. Taryn Casaleggio January 2014

“Cheryl States represented my husband and I in a recent purchase of a home. We found her to be extremely professional and knowledgeable on the market. Inventory was very limited at the time we purchased our home. Cheryl informed us within the hour of a home hitting the MLS which made us first to get our offer accepted in a very competitive environment. I would highly recommend her to represent anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She helped us in helping us find and purchase a home that fit our needs. My husband and I would use her for our next real estate transaction.” Madelynn Bruegger January 12, 2013

"Cheryl listed my house in Folsom, and provided me with a pain-free transaction. I chose her because she was honest and realistic about the market possibilities. She managed the sale of my house with efficiency, expertise, and integrity. She was always calm and supportive, as selling a house is stressful. She helped me stage the house for the best results, and when she said she would do something it was done immediately. TI would recommend Cheryl to anybody and everybody who wants a smooth home sale. Thanks, Cheryl!”  Donna Baca March 15, 2013

“My wife and I hired Cheryl as our Real Estate agent in June of 2011. At the outset we made it clear that it would be at least 5-6 months before we bought a house, and could be as long as a year. Many realtors would have run from that, but not Cheryl. Even though she had to show us dozens of houses over a 5 month period, she did it with professionalism and patience. What really sets Cheryl apart is the service from beginning to end of the sales transaction. I speak from experience, because prior to working with Cheryl I had bought and sold 3 different houses in the last 4-years with 3 different realtors. None of those realtors provided the type of knowledge and service that Cheryl did. What sets her apart from the competition, is that she will make sure that all of the i’s are dotted and the t’s are crossed; not missing a single detail in the process of getting the deal closed in a timely and efficient manner. Even after the closing, when we were out of town she took care of additional details to help us. If you are buying or selling a house in the Sacramento area, I would highly recommend using Cheryl, she’s the best of the best when it comes to understanding every aspect of the home-buying and selling process.” Dennis and Kathleen Williams January 4, 2012
