    Satisfaction Rating An agent's star rating is the average of all the ratings of their service.

    Having "a place to call home" has always been of paramount importance for me. Your home is your haven and safe place. A place everyone needs. My knowledge, integrity and intuitiveness are tremendous assets in helping people find and define their dream home or next step. Those qualities, in combination with my recognition of the importance of home, make me a natural realtor. "Making the match" and assisting people in finding their "haven" or helping them sell their home so they can move on, gives me the greatest joy. I truly listen to my clients and take the time to get to know them. Buying or selling a home is a big decision and can be very overwhelming. I do my best to be your stress holder, hoping to make your experience an exciting and joyful one! To be a part of that journey is an honor I treasure.

    In today's ever-changing market climate, I am honest in my advice and realistic in my approach. My knowledge and experience expands to residential, ranch, and land sales, and my designations include: Accredited Buyer Representative, Senior Real Estate Specialist, Seller Representative Specialist, Certified Negotiation Expert.

    Originally from Bayside, Queens, I worked in New York City for a time before moving to San Diego in 1978. Some of my work experience during that time included 16 years of experience as a marketer in the corporate world. Eventually, I moved to the small town of Julian, where I resided for 35 years. In Julian, I married, raised my family, started a successful salad dressing business in 2000, and pursued my passion of real estate. In 2003, a series of dreadful wildfires affected many homes in the area, including my own. During that time, I was fortunate enough to use my real estate expertise to continue assisting my friends and neighbors in the area.

    I am dedicated to my family and to my extended family of friends and clients alike.

    Like so many of you, I longed to move closer to my kids and grandkids, and I decided to finally take the plunge. Starting over

    Sheryll did an excellent job finding a property that satisfied our criteria. Her handling of all the paperwork and details was great. When we are in the market again, we will definitely contact Sheryll.

    Wayne gave Sheryll 5 stars out of 5
    Sheryll is a terrific realtor and and even better person. She was helpful and understanding of my feelings during my house buying experience. She took the time to get to know me and what I was looking for. When I had questions, she had answers. When I was apprehensive, as I often am, she was the voice of calm. She stood up for me and my interests first, but was fair and reasonable to the sellers needs too. I feel like I got a good deal and great representation. Sheryll is now counted among my most trusted friends. To this day, I still ask her advice about many subjects. Not just real estate. And she is always there for me.
    Cathy gave Sheryll 5 stars out of 5
    I had an opportunity to work with Sheryll while selling my home in Julian California. it was a challenging sale as what had been one property was now legally split into two separate addresses. I wanted to sell both at once and the buyer only wanted one. Sheryll was very helpful and skilled in negotiating with they buyer making it clear that if he wanted the one house he would have to buy both. It took a great deal of back and forth, carefully making sure the buyer was qualified to get both. It was all concluded within a month. Both addresses were sold as one sale. I felt very protected in the piles of paperwork the had to be prepared.. All happened without a hitch. Sheryll had to do much of the work for the buyer who was acting as his own agent but was not a detail person. Sheryll was fun to work with, very professional and knew everything to do to protect me. A winning combination and I am a very picky client. She is a winner! ON a scale of 1-10 she is an 11

    Sheryll assisted me with purchasing of two properties in the Sanders County, MT. However she was very helpful with providing an information for me for many properties located around Missoula area and in Plains, MT. She was very easily approached and worked on my request 24 hours a day. She quickly provided me with the information on the properties such as maps, covenants, community agent's phone numbers, as well as other information regarding the property such location, geographical position, possibility for the development and potential benefit for the buyer. On numerous occasions she made several phone calls on my behave to local offices to inquire information on ground water testing, potential for subdividing, floodplain plats, etc. Her office is in Missoula, MT, however she was able to come with me to Perma place in Sanders County to have a look on the property that was ~ 1 HR drive from Missoula. She is professional, pleasant, and expedient. She promptly responded to my calls, text messages and e-mails. I relied on her for accessing the correctness of the documents before signing. Sh was on my side always.

    Sheryll was there for me with any phone call or email I made. She made sure that my land purchase was in my best interest. Sheryll is smart, fast acting and always on top of any of her job as a realtor!
    Sondra gave Sheryll 5 stars out of 5
    As aging sellers we needed a realtor who was patient, knowledgeable, and "up-beat". Sheryll was all of those and helpful, and kind. She was willing to go beyond the normal duties of a realtor and went way beyond what may be considered the regular duties assigned to her. Not once did she say "Oh dear, I can't do that!" It was always, "Of course, don't worry about that, I will see it is taken care of." For those reasons and many, many more, we would highly recommend Sheryll as your realtor...If you are buying or selling. She was, and trulyis a friend who cared and was willing to go the extra mile to help and facilitate a quick sale ......and we are very grateful for her truly kind and knowledgeable help. Thank you Sheryll.
    Ashley gave Sheryll 5 stars out of 5
    Sheryll has represented us in the past as a buyer and most recently as a seller. She carries the utmost professionalism and remained in constant communication throughout the entire process. Very trustworthy and knowledgeable in the industry. Highly recommend!
    Louise gave Sheryll 5 stars out of 5
    I woud give 10 stars if I could. I cannot imagine a better real estate agent. She listened and paid attention to our needs. She answered all our questions including the ones we didn't know to ask. She helped us to get the house of our dreams at a price we could afford. Sheryll walked us through all the steps, inspections, paper work, water service, garbage service, etc. Her help didn't end with the sale. She was always ready to help us find a plumber, a carpenter, a hair-dresser, etc. Sheryll became a real friend and we were sorry when she moved away. We will always remember her with gratitude.

    My Experience

    • 20 years real estate experience in residential, ranches and land sales.
    • 16+ years in marketing and office management.

    My Credentials and Memberships

    • ABR, SRES, SRS, CNE Designations 2018 Business Excellence Award - Julian Chamber of Commerce, Board of Supervisors-San Diego, U.S. Congress & Senate Recognition 2017 Circle of Excellence Award
    • I would like to describe in more detail the meaning of the designations. Firstly, the ABR designation stands for Accredited Buyer Representative. ABR's know how to best represent the needs of the buyers including but not limited to negotiating repairs, fair pricing, lender requirements and negotiation skills. Especially in today's market, buyers need their own representation. The SRES designation is geared to best assist seniors with the real estate needs. Seniors may face different transitions whether it be sizing down, aging in place, or relocating closer to family. SRES Realtors are trained and can assist seniors best in all these areas. SRS - Seller Representative Specialist - allows agents to have a strong knowledge of issues that affect sellers. These issues range from staging to vital disclosures, marketing and pricing. The CNE -Certified Negotiation Expert trained me to negotiate in a more creative, positive way and to find solutions that will work for both sides of the transaction to obtain the best results of my clients. A strong negotiator is the strongest ally to have during negotiations. I am committed to keeping up with my education to best serve all of my clients!

    My Community Involvement

    • Before I moved to Missoula, my community involvement when my children were in school was fundraising for events; Member of the Julian Chamber of Commerce, Chairperson for the Julian Real Estate Association Scholarship Award Program. I hope to become involved here particularly in the classroom and Missoula Hospice.
