"I would 100% recommend Cheri as your first choice in the Athens area! We just moved across the country and were first time homebuyers, so we came in lost and confused in regard to not only what we wanted/could get, but also the entire purchase process. Cheri was amazing! She was patient with us, and she was willing to put in the time with us to figure out what we were looking for from a house. When we finally found our home, she handled everything that came up during the transaction. Our bank (we didn't use one of the lenders she recommended--mistake!) made things a hassle, but she was right there on top of every single thing. In many cases, it felt like we barely had to do anything to get things straightened out! I am thankful that we chose Cheri when looking for our home, and we will use her for any future real estate transactions we have. I don't know how she was able to devote so much time to our house search, but I am sure that she would do the same for you!"
Cheri is a true gem, and my husband and I count ourselves so blessed to have stumbled across her at the beginning of the search for our first home. Cheri has an extremely professional manner, but is also genuinely kind and very easy to talk to. From the get-go she listened very carefully to our preferences for a home and proactively found properties and scheduled showings. She provided what I thought was the perfect balance of advice without being overly pushy. She was a wealth of knowledge and quickly found any information that she thought might be useful to us, often unasked - from the cost of the average utility bills of our property to searching county records to find the location of our septic tank. We felt that she put the same amount of diligence into finding a home for us that she would put into finding a home for herself while at the same time respecting our unique preferences. From comparing notes with friends, she went above and beyond what many other realtors seem to do for their clients. She scheduled a free termite inspection for our house. After helping us negotiate which repairs to request from the seller, she took the trouble to personally meet with the seller at the property to point out every small crack in the wood siding to be caulked and painted. She scheduled a time for us to visit the house again before the closing to make sure everything was taken care of to our satisfaction. Throughout the whole process she was a pleasure to work with and always extremely quick to respond via phone, text, and email. She is good at explaining things clearly, which was very helpful to us as first time homebuyers. She got along well with three generations of our family. We had to take our two toddlers to several showings once, and she proved excellent at entertaining our three-year-old who now adores her. My husband's parents were impressed with her as well, and they can be pretty tough to please. We just moved into our new house last weekend, and we absolutely LOVE it. It has really exceeded the expectations we had at the beginning of our home search and perfectly meets the needs of our family. We are so thankful to Cheri for all her help, guidance, and support that made finding and buying our home possible. We now enthusiastically recommend her to all our friends.

"Cheri was extremely helpful, professional, and personable when helping my wife and I buy our first home. Her knowledge of the greater Athens area was key in helping us find the right place. She was always willing to show us more houses and never pressured us into anything. I would recommend Cheri to anyone." ~ Josh and Lindsey Warren
My grandson just closed on his first home and we are fortunate that we found Cheri Cherry to handle the process. Finding an acceptable home in his price range in the area where he needed to live was no small task but Cheri persevered until she found the perfect home in the perfect location. She is extremely thorough and pays attention to the smallest details. She is also knowledgeable about local schools and zoning. She stepped in to help resolve problems when the builder's rep was reluctant to talk with us and she kept us informed every step of the way. There was no question that she couldn't answer and she answered them promptly and cheerfully. Early in the process, Cheri let us know that a certain house was probably not the best option for us. She is focused on customer service vs. sales and that's a huge plus in her favor. I've never met a more professional realtor and in addition to that she's fun to be around.
"This professional never gives up. Never gets down. Never is without that contagious smile. She has the up to date knowledge to get the best price possible. If I had 100 properties to sell it would put them all in her hands."

Cheri was highly recommended to us and we would highly recommend her to any Athens area buyer or seller. Cheri helped us both buy a new home and sell our existing home in a short period of time. Cheri quickly understood what we were looking for and found us a house to buy that we probably would not have found on our own. She is an excellent negotiator and is always trying to find ways to save her clients money. We also sold our house with Cheri as listing agent and our house sold quickly. Cheri goes above and beyond the call of duty. She is a "make it happen" personality and doesn't stop until the deal is complete. There is a reason there are so many 5 star reviews of Cheri, she has earned them. I can't see any reason to use a different realtor, you won't be disappointed. -Mike Melone
