We first met Cheryl when we bought our house in Berkeley and
we were impressed with her combination of professionalism and warmth. She was always clear about options and
how to get through the hurdles and choices we faced. Then we chose Cheryl to represent us in selling our condo
and became even more impressed with her sense of strategy, suggesting we add a
bedroom to a large open space, pricing the unit so as to attract buyers in a
difficult market, and successfully negotiating the multiple offers we received. I'm convinced we ended up with a sale
that was the best one possible.
And it went through quickly, in a process that was both enjoyable and
efficient. Cheryl was consistently
smart about handling the many details and was a pleasure to work with. We would be pleased to work with her
We have come to know Cheryl Berger over the past few years through mutual business interests and having used her recently to sell a condo we owned and rehabilitated in Oakland. We found Cheryl to be ethical, hard working and a great facilitator with attention to all of the many details. She succeeds in getting the best for her client. In the time we've come to know Cheryl, we are comfortable enough to do business with her on a hand shake, and we can’t say that about very many people we know. We certainly look forward to working with Cheryl on many more investment properties.

It was really a pleasure to work with Cheryl. She is very knowledgeable about real estate in the East Bay and was incredibly patient and helpful throughout the whole buying process. I was a first time buyer and was very lucky to find a real estate agent that I could trust and rely on. I would highly recommend Cheryl to anyone who is buying or selling in the East Bay.
I love my new home and have Cheryl Berger to thank for it. She kept me calm in the chaos of a short sale. Cheryl warned me that a short sale could take some time but if I was patient I could get the property I wanted. She was right, it took months for the bank to approve the offer. In the mean time Cheryl kept me constantly updated with other properties available. She was always there to look with me, answer question and get any information I needed.
Once the bank finally approved the offer on the short sale Cheryl was there 24/7. Keeping me in the loop and the loan officer focused and on track with our closing date. The loan officer was so impressed with Cheryl's efficiency and responsiveness that she hopes to work with her again. The bank did not make anything easy but Cheryl did, she took control and now I'm in a home I love!
I don't plan on moving anytime soon but when the time comes I know Cheryl will take care of me!
Cheryl is the kind of realtor you want, she made herself available, and was always helpful and knowledgeable. My husband and I were on a strict budget with a lot of special requirements, plus we had twins on the way, so we were under a serious time crunch to find a house!
Cheryl showed us more than houses, being new to the East Bay, she took the time to show us neighborhoods, restaurants and markets so we could truly make an informed decision.
As first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions and Cheryl made us feel comfortable, addressing them all in a complete, professional and friendly manner. We never felt silly asking any of our questions.
If and when we decide to move again, Cheryl will be our first call.

I have worked with Cheryl Berger for several years with some business
partners, we have purchased fixed-up and sold several properties with
When purchasing, she is always "feeding" us potential
properties that may be of interest to us, and is always able to show us
the properties in a timely manor. She is very good at keeping us
up-to-date on the entire process, from "sign at the dotted line", to
"here's the keys."
When selling our properties, she shows us a
good list of comparables, so we can get an accurate listing price, and
her marketing is always top notch. Since we see a lot of agents out and
about, I've seen agents who sit and look at a computer screen during an
open house, Cheryl is always greeting, talking, and selling our houses
in a very professional manner. She never misses a beat responding to
all offers we receive, and negotiates on our behalf perfectly.
I am glad we have found her and use her for all our Real Estate needs.
Cheryl was my agent for the purchase of my first home in
Berkeley. I found her to be
intelligent, competent and professional in all our interactions throughout the
process of buying a property. She
was very attentive to me and always returned calls promptly when I saw a
property I wanted to look at. She answered all my questions and was patient
with me as a beginner in the world or real estate.
She took me through every step of the journey, from qualifying
for a mortgage to getting the keys to my new home. She recommended competent
brokers and inspectors. When I made a bid for a property she made herself
available to me by phone at all times. She explained the many documents that are
part of a real estate exchange. When I was overwhelmed, she remained calm.
I was lucky to have found Cheryl because she made buying a home
possible for me. I highly recommend her.
Cheryl was prompt, open, made all the right moves to help us short sell our Condo. We found a buyer and she provided the level of responsiveness that made the difference for our buyer. She didn't let up and took our sale as if it was her own.
Great job Cheryl and thank you!!

I have worked with Cheryl for many years. I have always been impressed
with the service she gives her clients. She has always been a true
advocate for them, and is more than willing to go that extra mile for
Both as an agent and as an investor of real estate, Cheryl has always
made the smart move at the right time. She is an expert at marketing
property, and at getting the best deal for her buyers. Her market
knowledge is precise and impeccable.
