When I met Cheryl, I knew instantly that she was the perfect agent to sell our home.
Her positive attitude, warm personality and real estate savvy was what we needed to get top dollar for our home. Our home was only on the market for 5 days before all the offers were coming in! Cheryl's knowledge of the market and our neighborhood is impressive. She helped us every step of the way, from setting up the inspections, down to every detail to make sure our negotiations went smoothly. She is AMAZING!!
We loved working with Cheryl and would not hesitate to recommend her to everyone we know.
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 again.
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!
It was a real pleasure working with Cheryl. We were looking all the time at houses on redfin and other real estate websites, but she directed us to a house that hadn't popped up on any of those searches; a house that she thought might be just perfect for the two of us. It was a short sale and there were a ton of roadblocks along the way from the banks involved but Cheryl helped us through each step of the way giving us all the information we needed. Throughout this stressful process Cheryl was calm, reliable, and when need-be, willing to fight on our behalf. She replied promptly to text and email, even on weekends and evenings, when sometimes we really needed her input. Cheryl was a joy to have as our agent and I would recommend her to anyone.
My husband and I had been on and off in the market for a home since 2010. Even though everyone kept stating how it was a great time to get into the market, we found it to be impossible. We were always outcompeted by either higher offers or all cash offers. It was very demoralizing to go through the merry-go-round of rejection. We had started to really think that this part of the American dream was just not available to our family.
This all changed when, by chance, we connected with Cheryl Berger! She immediately strategized to make us more competitive in this harder market of low supply. We reworked our contingency schedule to compete with all cash offers. She also connected us with a fabulous, local lending agent. Upon writing our second offer with Cheryl, we were accepted! We are now the proud owners of our very first home! We look forward to creating memories to cherish for all of our lives thanks to Cheryl!

We really enjoyed working with Cheryl. She is passionate about her job and it shows. She was straightforward, clear and patient throughout the entire process, from helping us decide on the right home for our family to negotiating a price we were comfortable with. Cheryl knows how to get the job done. And on top of it all, she was a lot of fun to work with! We would definitely recommend Cheryl to anyone looking for a great realtor.

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 her.
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!!

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.

Cheryl is fantastic! I was looking for a house in the Oakland area and
she was incredibly helpful. She gave her honest opinion on the various
neighborhoods and steered me towards the better areas that still fit
within my budget. When I finally found "the" house, she made sure that
we came out on top of the bidding war. When that house had difficulties
due to the tenants not wanting to leave, she kept me constantly informed
Cheryl was incredibly professional, but also real.
She never came off as fake or disingenuous. I trusted her implicitly,
which is something I did not expect to find in a realtor. She loves her
job and it shows in her abilities. I will assuredly use her the next
time I'm in need of a realtor and will be recommending her to everyone I
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 her clients.
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.
