Cherie was absolutely wonderful to work with! She was super knowledgeable about the whole buying experience! We had looked at a few different properties and she was always on time and always very professional. I will be looking to purchase more properties in the future and I know exactly who I will be contacting.
Cherie was wonderful to work with. She is smart, attentive, persistent and a good negotiator. She was able to think outside the box and sold our rental property for the amount we needed when other realtors told us they wouldn't be able to.
We had Cherie help us for over a year finding just the right home for our family. She also sold our previous home. Cherie is incredibly knowledgeable of the market and conditions here in the valley. She was always prompt in communicating with us and her warm personality made the journey a joy. I highly recommend Cherie for you home buying/selling experience. She's the best!
Cherie was the Listing Agent for the sale of my Mother's home. Honestly it was the most seamless transaction in all of my years of buying and selling real estate. Cherie is a consummate professional who knows the market! She priced the home spot on and we had multiple offers in the first 24 hours! Not only did we have a full price offer but the transaction was funded in less than a month. Additionally, Cherie recently assisted us on the purchase of a hillside lot. This is a niche area of expertise and she is experienced in understanding the regulations and restrictions of this type of purchase. I highly recommend Cherie, and will absolutely use her again in the future!
Cherie took over our listing after it had it expired with our previous agent. She took the time to go over the current market conditions for our neighborhood and how she would present the home to buyers and other agents. She put out the new listing with a more realistic price that was minimally lower and the house sold at asking price within two weeks.
Cherie Malkoff is a highly skilled expert in the real estate field. She gave us advice on how to best present our home for sale, had a top notch marketing program and leveraged a professional photographer. Our home sold in less than a week at the highest $/foot in the area. She also helped us find the perfect new home by understanding our 'must have' list and giving us options across an extended area, and was a trusted consultant through the entire process all the way to closing. You can trust Cherie to do an excellent job for you on both buy and sell transactions.
Cherie guided my wife and me through our first home purchase in a very tough market for buyers, and I can only say that she is the absolute best, and a true professional. As first-time buyers, we had tons and tons of questions. She answered every one with patience, diligence, and expertise. She is the ultimate professional: highly organized, and not just highly responsive but also proactive: anticipating our needs, answering the questions we did not even know to ask, and even going above and beyond to go out and physically search throughout the Valley on her own to find the hidden gems. From the first day we met her through closing (and beyond), Cherie has been nothing but the best. If you're looking for a realtor at the height of the profession, one you can trust with your family, call Cherie. We will be sending our own family and friends to her forever.
Cherie and team were absolutely fabulous to us from start to finish. They were always available, knowledgable, and helped us quickly sell the home even during a slower period. Thank you all!! Use Cherie!!!
