In 2010 I retained Cheryl to both purchase a new home and to sell my old home. She is very organized and she has a great down-to-earth personality. I found that Cheryl knows the real estate market in the Silicon Valley very well...When I was in the process of buying my new home, she knew what I needed to offer to close the deal and upon putting my old home up for sale, she also knew exactly what I needed to do to get it sold quickly in the current up-and-down market. I recommend Cheryl for anyone's residential real estate needs in the Silicon Valley.

Cheryl Okuno is a top-notch professional. She handled both the sale of our townhouse and the purchase of our current home efficiently and professionally, but with a personal touch as well. She gave us honest advice and set reasonable and accurate expectations for us throughout both transactions. We pride ourselves on being well-informed and educated on many real estate issues, yet we found that Cheryl was still able to educate us much further through her wealth of information and knowledge about the real estate market, home inspections, neighborhood info, and much, much more. She is dependable, accessible and always took the time to meet with us at our convenience to discuss our concerns. We continue to look to Cheryl for advice when it comes to real estate or property matters and she continues to be extremely helpful, long after the close of our transactions. We would recommend Cheryl without hesitation and will not think twice about using her again for any future real estate needs.

Cheryl, you were able to alleviate much of the stress of buying and selling a home by being extremely knowledgeable and organized, and took us step by step through the process.  Thanks for the many reminders and explanations to keep us on track and the process moving smoothly.  In addition, your assistant and your long list of referrals for inspectors and maintenance personnel were invaluable.  Thank you again for all your efforts, you went out of your way to make sure that we were taken care of in every aspect.  We could not have done it without  you!

The care Cheryl gives her clients and her dedication to a job well done is such a personal priority to her, she has established a reputation in the community and was referred to me by previous happy customers without solicitation.  She is a joy to work with, with no high pressure sales job, and yet a respect for my time, energy and resources.  She establishes personal relationships with her clients, often going above and beyond the call of duty to make sure her clients are happy and well taken care of.  The dedication , professionalism, and efficiency and the personal touch of Cheryl Okuno is a very real asset to Alain Pinel Realtors.

As a first time home buyer, I have to say that I had a lot of doubts about buying a home.  However, now that I have moved into my home, I think it is one of the best decisions I have made.  I couldn't have made it here without Cheryl.  When I started I started this process I knew NOTHING about home buying.  Cheryl was so patient about explaining the whole process and all the terms.  Cheryl never rushed me to put an offer on a place that wasn't right for me.  She took the time to figure out what I wanted-to the point where she actually knew better than me about what I would like.  Cheryl took the time to set up all the appointments for the minor repairs, even getting multiple bids to get the best deal for me.  All of her service people have been prompt, efficient, polite and well priced.  Even after moving in she helps me out solving any problems with my house.  Cheryl has gone beyond simply being "my realtor" to one of my friends and trusted advisors.  I wholeheartedly recommend you to all of my friends who are considering buying a home.  Thank you for everything!

Cheryl, thanks to you I have a wonderful house to live in.  In looking for my home, your experience in being a real estate agent was truly put to the test.  We must have looked at over 80 houses and I now know all of the neighborhoods in the South Bay.  With my hectic schedule, you always seed to accommodate me in setting out times to get together and I always enjoyed the conversations we had in the car and the insights you gave on each of the areas we visited.  Cheryl helped me find a contractor to refinish my hardwood floors and one to take a wall down in my bedroom.  Thank you for helping me find a home.  I would recommend you to others who seek this same special gift.

Cheryl, we hope you already know how much we appreciated and enjoyed working with you during our house buying process; however, we wanted to express, again, our heartfelt thanks for all you did for us.  Your ability to put us at ease while expertly answering all of our questions is a true testament to the respect you have for your clients.  Cheryl, what's most amazing to us is your incredible work ethic and ability.  Although we would joke with you about your abundance of energy and stamina, we cannot stress enough how much we appreciated your willingness to "go the extra mile" for us.  We did not know what a gem we had when we were first referred to you by a colleague.  We will continue to spread the word about your fantastic service and expertise.

We were apprehensive of what loomed ahead of us, because we had no idea, or what had to be done to sell a property.  Your explanation of the step by step process at our first meeting put us at ease.  Your knowledge of the real estate market, organizational skills and guidance were invaluable.  Because of your honesty, openness and expertise, the sale could not have gone more quickly or smoothly.  Anytime anyone asks about real estate, we proudly give your name.  Thanks again!

With a brief language gap, Cheryl was patient and made sure we clearly understood the overall process of selling our home. Cheryl also made every effort to accommodate us by always meeting us face to face.

Cheryl Okuno is an efficient professional who treats her clients with heartfelt care and concern. It is only because of her impressive negotiating skills that we are living in the home that we've always wanted. Cheryl ensured that the sale of our previous property and the purchase of our current home were made on our terms without any inconvenience to us. Most admirable is that along with Cheryl's impressive negotiating skills are her extremely high ethical values. She will not compromise anyone just to close a sale. Cheryl was always readily accessible and available whenever we had any questions, no matter how trivial. Bryan has bought/sold 3 properties with Cheryl and there's no doubt that we will call her again for any further real estate needs.

Hi, Cheryl

 My name is Rob Rius and my wife and I were one of the bidders on the Adelaide property in Belmont. 

 We never made direct contact, but my realtor has said nothing but good things about your practice.  In such a competitive environment, I wanted to reach out and commend you for how you do business.  I'm sure the owners of Adelaide are very pleased, as they should be.  But I'm more impressed by your professionalism, strategic thinking as well as follow up to those that ended up on the losing end of the bids.  That says a lot about your attention to detail and service. 

 Good luck with the rest of your career.  I'm sure you'll continue to be quite successful.

 Your colleague in sales,

Rob
