Cheryl exceeded my expectations. I have worked with several realtors in the past and none can compare to the dedication and skills that Cheryl provides. She was patient and accommodating during the process, which was a challenge, as I submitted three different contracts on properties prior to final purchase. Cheryl's commitment and personalized service made the process a positive experience. I will definitely recommend Cheryl to family and friends for any real estate needs.
After interviewing several agents for the sale of our property in Mesa we decided to list with Cheryl. During her presentation she was by far the most prepared and had a well thought out marketing plan and understood the local market. The listing process was simple and as we lived out of state she kept us informed as was able to execute documents remotely.
Had an offer very close to our list in less that a week and closed quickly, once again remotely.
I would recommend Cheryl to anyone selling in the area.
Cheryl is awesome! She is a very good communicator; prompt, clear, and consistent and was always available to do what needed to be done. She was flexible with us during a crazy, busy time in our lives and we could not be more thankful for her how diligently she worked on our behalf. She is a tough negotiator, knows her stuff, and happens to be a really cool person too! We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor they can depend on. Thanks Cheryl!
I have nothing but great things to say about Cheryl! She is a very knowledgable realtor and will go to bat for her clients. She knew exactly what I was looking for and tirelessly searched until she helped me find the right home. She is very prompt and is always very good about answering any questions that I had. This was my first home purchase and she was there with me the whole way. Very trustworthy!
Cheryl worked with us for over a year as long distant clients. We were in Indiana and relocating to AZ. We finally found our dream home 9 months after we first started working with her. Cheryl always kept us updated with the latest and greatest from day one. She was active throughout close of escrow (this was an extremely difficult transaction) and she kept us motivated, upbeat, and optimistic in all hurdles we ran into. She made herself available no matter the time and always found us answers to our questions. She was so invested into us getting our dream home that she became a member of the family and a great friend to us. We would recommend her to anyone who is looking for the home of their dreams. She will not let you down.
Cheryl was fantastic. Terrific service, she worked hard to find what we were looking for & exceeded our expectations. Thanks Cheryl!
We had spoken to several realtors before we found Cheryl and it was immediately obvious that she was a step above, although new to the ASU/ Tempe Student Housing market she took the time to research and share allowing us to make an excellent choice for our needs but which would give us a long term option. All this despite being very pregnant, and dealing with the AZ heat (she gave birth a week after we closed) and was very available and willing. Then during the negotiation and filled the shortcomings of the sellers agent she got the price down and got closing costs paid. I like to look at every aspect and Cheryl allowed us to hone a wish list to best fit. She was committed to our needs but willing to advise on security or external costs which could negatively effect our new home value (security, leased land costs etc). I'm sure she will do just as good a job when she helps us find our next property and if we decide to sell this one.
Cheryl made the process of buying a house very exciting and easy for us. She worked constantly to keep us on schedule to close while we lived out of state. She knows the area around pheonix better than anyone and put us in the home we loved and wanted! She was the first realtor for us and now we wont be going anywhere else. Very HIGHLY RECOMMENDED if you want a painless process!
Cheryl was always very pleasant & friendly. Checked in with me plenty on how my search was going and always had suggestions or ideas regarding homes to look at. Cheryl was always very prepared for questions that needed addressed. She certainly works hard to help you find the home to best fit your needs and interests.
Working with Cheryl was an excellent experience. Once she understood the features we were looking for and the price point she was very pro-active with recommendations for our target area. We probably viewed a dozen homes with her.
Her local reputation and expertise has awarded her the title of 'Rockstar Realtor.' She was extremely friendly, down to earth and fun to work with. As first time home-buyers we were weary and had much to learn about the process. Cheryl was most knowledgeable, patient and kind. She worked day after day to help us find the home of our dreams that truly fit our needs. We highly recommend Cheryl!
We were new to home buying and when we met with Cheryl, she helped us figure out what we wanted/needed. She explained the process and was very thorough. Viewing homes was a breeze as we found a home we purchased almost immediately. Cheryl advised us on making an offer and ended up getting us a better deal than we had expected.
Our experience with Cheryl Riley was one that we feel was second to none, Cheryl went above and beyond what we ask of her even when we were out of state during the final phase of our purchase. Cheryl is one that we're happy to be associated with and couldn't ask for a better realtor to handle our purchase, she was outstanding in every way and so glad that she represented us.
Cheryl helped me purchase two homes in the East Valley area and I couldn't be happier with her service, professionalism and overall willingness to be available for questions or showings. We looked at numerous homes that took a lot of driving and she was always more than happy to meet when we needed to - and I'll mention - this was all in 100 degrees while she was pregnant! I'd recommend Cheryl to anyone looking for prompt, professional and friendly service!
She helped us find our dream home, she assisted us through the loan process, which we knew nothing about, she paid attention to our wants and needs in a home and delivered!!!! I can't sing enough high praises about Cheryl! Use her if you can, you won't regret it!!!!
