“Having Cheryl Hammond represent us in the sale of our home was a very positive experience from start to finish in that she guided us through the process with the highest of confidence and professionalism. Buying or selling a home can be a very stressful ordeal but with Cheryl ‘s knowledge,  expertise and ongoing communication with us it was a mutually satisfying experience. This is the 2nd time our family has utilized the services of Cheryl and we don’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone that is in need of a qualified realtor that will work hard on their behalf to get results.”



“Cheryl was an amazing addition and stabilizing personality to our team of folks working to sell my Dad’s place. I had personally never bought or sold a home, and Cheryl made the process more than possible — she made it smooth and anxiety-free. She truly is a professional, and I would recommend her  in a heartbeat!”

– Kevin Toqe


“Cheryl came highly recommended and she was excellent to work with. She managed selling my dad’s home which was complicated by the fact that I live out of the area and travel a lot. She handled scheduling the house prep services while giving advice on what should and should not be repaired to sell quickly. She was great to work with and communication was no problem even at a distance and across different time zones. In the end we had an accepted offer 6 days after listing, and she proactively handled all the offer/counteroffer paperwork so I could eSign while on the road. I was even out of the country on a trip during escrow and Cheryl took care of anything that popped up. It all went very smoothly and we are very happy and confident to have worked with Cheryl.”



“We just closed on the sale of our home in Clayton, and Cheryl did an amazing job. Right from the first meeting, we really felt we were in the hands of a professional. Very thorough in the comparative analysis of the area and of other properties listed for sale. As we walked through our home, Cheryl made spot on suggestions on how to stage our home, what repair and painting needed to be done and even had a list of her preferred craftsmen to aid in the preparation. The marketing packet was top notch and the open house was amazing, bringing in a an amazing number of qualified buyers. Every step of the way, Cheryl was calm, professional, informative and provided excellent direction and advice. Selling your home is stressful, yet when you have Cheryl as your agent, it becomes a breeze. From the first meeting to the closing, Cheryl was attentive and communicative. Read Cheryl’s other reviews, they are spot on. Thanks Cheryl!!”



“My husband and I have been great friends with Cheryl Hammond for the last 25 years, and she has been our realtor for the past 22 years. She has helped us buy a house and also sell a house in the course of those 22 years.

I can’t say enough great things about how professional Cheryl is and how she treated us during the buying and selling of the two different homes. She sold our last home for us in a difficult market, and was always so positive and encouraging to us. What I appreciated the most about Cheryl is how hard she worked for us to get our house sold in a timely manner, and she was always available to talk or answer questions when needed. I feel like she went above and beyond in how she took care of us, and always went that extra mile for us in everything down to the last detail.

Cheryl has built a great reputation in the bay area on honesty, integrity and a genuine care and well-being for her clients. She has a beautiful heart for helping people and we felt it 100% when she was working with us as our realtor. Everybody that we know in the community that knows Cheryl too, always has so many great things to say about her as well, and always comments on how much they love her and love working with her.

I’m very grateful for how smooth and easy she made the whole process of recently selling our house for us. Cheryl Hammond is one in a million and we absolutely love her!!”



“I can not recommend Cheryl highly enough. She helped me and my sister through a very emotional time as my father and step mother were selling their house in Berkeley, California when my father was taken ill and we arrived on the scene from the UK. It was a very confusing time for all of us and not knowing the system in America, Cheryl guided us, advised us and supported us way above and beyond. Sadly our Dad died whilst we were there and Cheryl was respectful and patient as we tried to make decisions about what we would do. She was always there to offer advice and was very sympathetic to our needs. She was the calm amongst the storm and I can honestly say that without that calmness our experience would have been far far worse. She eventually sold the house and managed the whole process with Seniors On The Move as my step mother was not capable of moving herself and we were back in the UK so everything was arranged by Cheryl and the house sale and her move was done sympathetically and smoothly. Cheryl showed her patience, calmness, professionalism and kindness in spades and she made a very difficult and upsetting situation bearable and I can’t thank her enough.”



“I met Cheryl Hammond through a business networking group we’re both apart of in Walnut Creek. I’ve known many of her clients and everyone’s always raving about her amazing professional and supportive service as a real estate agent. I’ve had the opportunity to get to know her professionally and personally over the last couple years.

While there are real estate agents out there who are primarily concerned with making the sale, and aggressive in their approach, Cheryl sets herself apart because she’s truly concerned with helping her clients make the best decisions for themselves overall, and based on their current and future financial situations. Which means, she will not recommend a move or the purchase of a property that she doesn’t truly believe would be the best fit for her client. She becomes extremely familiar with her clients’ needs so she can help them make these decisions more strategically.

I referred her to a family member who had worked with agents in the past who were not as professional, as knowledgeable or as thorough as Cheryl. They really didn’t seem to put much effort into getting them the best price on a previous property they’d sold. I wanted them to be in the best hands possible this time around. Plus, they were also having difficulty deciding where their next move should be, I knew they’d need her guidance to find the best fit.

As she worked with them, Cheryl continued to be patient, warm, kind, friendly and professional throughout the entire process. She was there every step of the way. She also kept her cool in potentially stressful and complex situations. The two of them working together proved to be hugely successful and a great fit!

She has so much knowledge from her 30-plus years as a real agent in the Bay Area. I would love to refer her to more people and work with her myself in the future. I know anyone who works with her can trust they are in the best hands possible. They will be well taken care of during a time when huge financial and life decisions are being made.

I’ve seen her fight for her clients, and at times she seems to make the impossible happen. Plus, she’s really fun to be around and hang out with too šŸ˜€ Thank you for everything Cheryl!”



“Cheryl does an amazing job. Whether you are a buyer or seller, Cheryl has your best interest at heart. She knows exactly how to negotiate so that you get the best deal. She ensures that, as a seller you get the most money for your property and as a buyer, you don’t over pay for property. My family and I have bought and sold 9 properties with Cheryl as our realtor. We wouldn’t use anyone else!”



“working with Cheryl Hammond was a great experience. I highly recommend her for kindness and understanding of your real estate transactions. She also has a knack for fulfilling your needs and guiding you through the process.”



“If you are looking for an honest, responsive agent, this is the one. She will work hard for you with your best interest in focus. Some agents you never hear from or see once you sign the contract, Cheryl will see that you are provided all the help you need throughout until the end.

She knows everyone and is well known for her integrity, honesty and kindness..”



“Cheryl is who will get the job done quickly and professionally for you. I have worked with her on 7 of my sales and purchases and can tell you that she is knowledgeable, reliable, and gets her clients the best deal possible. She is polite but firm when negotiating on her client’s behalf.”



“Cheryl made the sell of our home seamless for us. She realizes it is a HOME and not just a building and treats you and your home with respect. Her work ethic is impeccable and she really shows her skills in the negotiation ring. If you want your home to sell quickly and without issues, hire her!!!”



“Cheryl helped us sell our house in Oakland last spring. She had the local expertise that helped us find a stager, landscaper, wonderful photographer and termite inspector. She was able to negotiate with a difficult buyer and keep us from leaping off the ledge! Go Cheryl!”



“Cheryl was an amazing addition and stabilizing personality to our team of folks working to sell my Dad’s place. I had personally never bought or sold a home, and Cheryl made the process more than possible — she made it smooth and anxiety-free. She truly is a professional, and I would recommend her in a heartbeat!”



“Cheryl Hammond helped us sell our home in Pittsburg last December. She consistently impressed us with her comprehensive and detailed knowledge of real estate law and protocol, and her ability to explain and interpret these to us. Cheryl was thoroughly engaged in the entire process. We could contact her at any time and she responded immediately with the wisdom that only comes with long experience and devotion to her clients. She had helpful suggestions and knew all the right people to help us with the many issues we faced, whether movers, contractors, loan officers, etc. For every conceivable problem she had a well-thought-through plan of action at the ready. Cheryl always listened to us carefully. During the whole process we felt that we had a powerful, friendly, reliable, and informed ally. We enthusiastically recommend Cheryl to you – we wouldn’t even consider another!”



“Cheryl Hammond from Keller William Realty helped my wife and I recently get our house sold in the Oakland Hills. She was completely involved in every step from letting us know what things we needed to do to get the house ready to sell to get the highest sales price to walking us through the closing process with the new owners. She told us her specialty is marketing and it was very apparent from the beginning this was absolutely the case. These transactions are often very difficult and stressful but Cheryl was there to talk us “off the ledge” on several occasions. Not only did our house sell in a timely manner but a good amount above the original listing price. We highly recommend Cheryl if you or anyone you know are looking at putting your house on the market. We’re living proof that this is absolutely a seller’s market and Cheryl is a seller’s agent!”



“Cheryl Hammond has assisted me in buying two homes. She is very professional and experienced. She listens to her client’s needs and works to match their “wish list” of requirements. She is an agent with integrity and I would recommend her without hesitation.”



“Cheryl was great!

She helped us sell our HOME in a very short amount of time. She kept us in the know every step of the way and made it as stress free as possible. We truly appreciate all that she did for us.”



“Working with Cheryl Hammond to purchase a home was such a positive experience. One of the things I really appreciated about working with her was how she took the time to understand what things were important to me in a home. I never felt pushed or pressured. Instead, she took a lot of time to listen, offer options and share the positive features and the things I may want to consider with each house. This helped me to feel that I was able to make a well-informed decision.

When one of my offers was accepted, Cheryl was there every step through the process. She has a lot of great resources and stayed on top of ensuring that inspections and paperwork were completed. I felt like she communicated clearly and continually watched out for my best interest. I had a couple unexpected hurdles during the escrow. Cheryl had a calming presence and worked through each one to ensure that the issues were resolved and in a satisfactory manner. I would highly recommend Cheryl to anyone who is looking to purchase or sell a home!”



“Cheryl sold our home in an incredibly difficult market following the national tragedy of 9/11. She analyzed our home and our area and brought buyers at a better price than we hoped. All our transactions with her were smooth and thoughtful! We couldn’t recommend her more highly.”



“My husband and I have maintained an ongoing, professional relationship with Cheryl Hammond for over 28 years. We have purchased and sold several homes by utilizing her expertise of local real estate trends and market analysis. She has worked extremely hard in every transaction to ensure that our homes were marketed widely and with the highest price point possible. In one of our listings, we received multiple offers over asking price. She was able to share with us why we should go with the more solid offer and not just what appeared to be the best offer. Her personal and professional attitude and timely follow-up are musts in today’s technology-based real estate environment.

We would not hesitate to recommend Cheryl to anyone who is looking for a top, no-nonsense agent who will work with her clients to ensure the best possible outcome when buying or selling a home. Her over 30 year’s experience clearly makes her one of the top agents in the Bay Area.”



“Over the last 20 years, we have used Cheryl to both sell and purchase numerous homes. She is a polished professional who really knows her stuff. She is a great pleasure to work with, a brilliant salesperson and great negotiator. She always has her clients best interest in mind and works hard to make the whole process easy. I can not recommend her more highly…she is absolutely THE BEST!!”



“Cheryl was great! She helped us sell our HOME in a very short amount of time. She kept us in the know every step of the way and made it as stress free as possible. We truly appreciate all that she did for us.”



“Although we have yet to purchase a home, we have been searching for a perfect retirement home for the past five years. As you can imagine, this means we are rather picky and have been shown many homes and are hesitant to make offers. The patience and time that Cheryl gives us is truly special – she cares about US not the transaction.

My husband and I are so thankful that Cheryl jumps to show us every home that fits our criteria. We know that the right Home is out there for us! We also know that Cheryl will never give up on our hope and excitement for the perfect dwelling.”



“We love Cher. She is the best. Goes out of her way to get the house you want. We have know her for many years and have worked with her on a few different houses. She never disappoints.”



“It was a pleasure working with Cheryl, from the time we first met until the closing of the sale on my parents condominium. I was so impressed with how everything just fell right into place and how efficient she was in making the transaction as easy as possible. I was very happy that all the document signings and contracts were done electronically saving time for everyone involved.

I would definitely use Cheryl again and highly recommend her to friends and family.”


“My wife and I were in the process of listing our house back in the mid-2000. The kids were getting older and needed more room to play and grow. I was introduced to Cheryl through my sister in-law. At that time my wife and I had known Cheryl only by name and the occasional appearance Sundays at our church. Cheryl was great from start to finish. She gave us important tips on preparing our house for sale, which we followed all of her advice. She spent a lot of time showing many homes in different communities with my wife and was able to weed out the ones for me to visit. When our house was sold she was able to get top dollar. When it came down to additional inspection of the new home the seller of the home was less than nice, even threatening to relist it at a higher price. Cheryl calmly reminded her that she was under contract and she has to do what is best for her! Needless to say we purchased the home. There were a few weeks that overlapped where we owned our old house and had the keys to our new house and both were expertly negotiated by Cheryl. As our last child is getting ready to venture into the college world out of state we are now setting our sites on selling this one, again not hesitating to utilize Cheryl once more.

I cannot say enough great things about Cheryl. She knows the local market, she does a fantastic job listing and marketing, she is always ahead of the curve, she keeps you in the loop when you need to be notified and does not when it would be unnecessary stress. Cheryl will make sure that you receive top dollar for the sale of your home and make sure your purchase of a home is at the best value.

I am excited to say that our next home sale will be our last as we are entering our retirement years. We look forward keeping in touch with Cheryl as she has been a faithful friend and a very professional realtor.”



“Cheryl Hammond is easy to work with, she cares about each client. Each house she has listed for us or our friends has sold in a short amount of time. She is my realtor of choice.”


“Cheryl has sold three houses for us and we have always found her an excellent agent. She has vast experience and knowledge of the area as well has an excellent ability to price a house competitively. She strives to be available for questions and we have found her a valuable source of information during the process.”



“Cheryl is very professional and easy to work with. She is a respected agent with extensive knowledge of the area, pricing, other agents and is an expert negotiator. We had a positive experience working with her and would highly recommend Cheryl to anyone.”



“When my mother-in-law moved from Richmond to Concord to be closer to her son, Cheryl was extremely helpful in locating the ideal residence, negotiating the price and then expertly expediting the transaction for a quick transition from one home to another.

Her careful attention to detail and expert knowledge of the market resulted in a wonderful outcome.”



“Fast sale, during off-season. Results are critical, and Cheryl delivered. Her expertise guided us, without pressure, to price it right. Her recommended partners helped us turn a 17yr old house into a solid show home. She was super responsive, efficient, yet caring with our personal situation. Our 3rd home sale, an ideal experience, and we’d confidently recommend Cheryl.”



“It is a pleasure to introduce Ms. Cheryl Hammond…I hired Cheryl to list a house in Clayton, Ca. for me that was a Trust sale. I had the opportunity to observe her work ethics and more importantly her personal traits and make up. Cheryl possesses the ability to treat everyone with dignity and respect with a great amount of professionalism. My observations again showed Cheryl display maturity, personal job commitment, initiative, and integrity. I applaud her knowledge and attention to detail which has most likely projected her to be a top real estate agent in the County for many years….experience counts!!”



“We listed our house in Pacheco with Cheryl in March of 2015. Cheryl is knowledgeable about the local real estate market and was very helpful. Our house sold in less than a week. Cheryl was also helpful with negotiating repairs after the home inspection. Selling our home was an easy, smooth deal.”



“It was my first time selling a home. My first and only choice for a Realtor was Cheryl Hammond, because she knows the Market. Cheryl was the perfect one to take me through the process. She was incredibly prepared, about the neighborhood, discussed pricing points and how to get the best price and quick sale. My house was listed on a Thursday, by the end of that weekend I had multiple offers over the asking price. Cheryl kept me informed during the whole process and answered all my communications quickly. I was moving from California to North Carolina, Cheryl on her own researched Realtors in the area I was moving to and made arrangement to meet the Realtor which turn out great, I found the perfect home and neighborhood.

Cheryl Hammond simply is great at what she does! I would highly recommend Cheryl if you are selling or burying your home.”



“I have recommended Cheryl many times for those looking to sell or buy. She is professional and knowledgeable, a joy to work with. I have had her sell our home and my father’s, also. Because of her years of experience she knows the Bay Area really well.”



“Cheryl Hammond was an absolute dream to work with. If you are looking to buy or sell a home, I highly recommend Cheryl Hammond for all your real estate needs. I hired Cheryl in 2005 to help in the selling of my condo, she went above and beyond my expectations, she’s hard-working, knowledgeable, and very honest…And even though I decided not to sell at that point in time, Cheryl guided me through this very stressful process and handled all the details.”



“Cheryl has been my real estate agent for five transactions over 25 years. I have total trust in her expertise. She is both knowledgeable and has a gracious personality making it a pleasure to do business with her.”



“Cheryl was an excellent realtor for us. While we were on vacation, she was able to line up people to some needed work on the house. They did great work and were not too expensive. She was sensitive to the fact that we were selling the home we had lived in for the last 18 years where our children had grown up and helped us over the “emotional hump” to make the right decisions about selling the house. I would recommend Cheryl to anybody who is selling or buying a home. She pays attention to what her clients want and does her best to deliver on those needs.”



“Cheryl is an excellent realtor. When we moved to the area we weren’t sure where we should buy a house. Cheryl helped us find a rental until we were ready to buy. She continued to look for appropriate houses for us and when we were ready to buy she showed us a number of good houses. We felt she did a good job of selecting the right houses for our financial needs and preferences. She is personable, professional and knowledgeable. I would have no hesitation whatsoever to recommend her to my friends and colleagues.”



“Cheryl Hammond is a true Real Estate Professional. Her substantial years of representing Sellers and Buyers in the market has made her an amazing standout among her fellow agents. Cheryl exceeds the knowledge, expertise and skills it commands to execute a simple or complex transaction.

Cheryl listed our home and we received multiple offers. Our home sold in 5 days; over the asking price. She guided us on picking out the best solid buyer at the highest price. The process was smooth with Cheryl’s reassurances on how to proceed to closing.

Cheryl then assisted us in purchasing a home. She was willing at anytime to meet us to tour homes along with current comps on neighboring homes in hand. She found us the perfect home at a great competitive price and again, the process was smooth. She assisted us throughout the escrow and even attended the signing of the closing papers.

I would not hesitate to recommend Cheryl to list your home or have her represent you as a buyer.. She gets the job done with confidence, expertise and always a smile.”



“I have known Cheryl and her family for many years, as my daughter’s friend, and I’m very grateful for her help, in every way, in finding the perfect home for me when I relocated to Brentwood. Cheryl is an ‘all around’ lovely person as well as a’ super professional’ Realtor.. I highly recommend her!”

She has a vast network which is so important when you need to sell and find buyers not just in your home town area. This is just what she did for us she found us a full price buyer out of the area.

“Cheryl brought my husband and I to purchased our first family home almost 7 years ago. She fought so hard for us and was able to navigate and improve our chance of purchase- at the time going against 14 other offers. Without her expertise and guidance we wouldn’t have been blessed with our forever home. It’s perfect for us and she felt the same way. Her heart is golden; full of trust, honesty and respect. If we ever choose to move on- Cheryl would be our go to. Thank you again! We love you.”



“We have know Cheryl Hammond for about 10 years. We have relied on her for 4 separate transactions ourselves; The buying and selling of a rental property. The sale of our house and the purchase of our new house. You will not find anyone with more industry expertise, negotiating skills, or follow through. We have so much faith in her, we referred her to my parents and my wife’s parents as they all relocated to Brentwood. That’s 7 transactions we have had the privilege of seeing Cheryl at work. She is always there, staying on top of any situation, planned or un-planned, until the deal closes. In addition to all this, she is just a quality person, and you will immediately feel glad that you called her.”



“Cheryl assisted us from listing to closing which included connecting us with a staging company, setting a fair market price which led to multiple offers that led to an over list price sale.”



“My wife and I met Cheryl Hammond originally through a neighborhood garage sale that she had put together for our neighborhood when we were still leasing our home in Antioch many years ago. I kept Cheryl’s business card and information. Cheryl became our friend and then became our agent when we decided to buy a home. Cheryl’s expertise and friendship guided us through the ups and downs of purchasing and turned our home buying from what seemed like a fantasy into a reality. Several years later, we decided to sell and downsize. Many things had to be coordinated, prepping our home for the sale, decluttering, home-showing, and then deciding on which offer to accept. Cheryl was right there for us on the sale and repurchase that had so many timing challenges, but all went smoothly and Cheryl negotiated on our behalf both during the sell and new purchase until we got through the contract and received the keys to our new home. I recommend our friend, Cheryl Hammond, with her compassion, caring, and years of experience to guide you through your home-buying needs from start to finish!!!”



“Cheryl helped me quickly purchase and sell my first home. She is extremely knowledgeable and was great at explaining each step of the process and helping me along the way. She keeps you updated on any progress and always wants the best for her client.”



“Cheryl was able to alleviate any and all stress in, what I considered, a very emotional process and transaction. She explained every step of the process along the way without involving me in things I didn’t need to be a part of. Her care and professionalism were much appreciated! Thank you Cheryl!”



“My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Cheryl Hammond not once, but twice while buying and selling our homes. She took care of us from beginning to end. No question was too small to answer and no request of ours was denied. We had a positive experience with all of our transactions.

What sets Cheryl apart from the rest is her 30 years of experience in real estate, her stellar work ethic and her uncompromising character. Cheryl stays current in all things real estate. She is extremely knowledgeable and is well-connected. She is accessible and responsive as well as patient and calm.

Cheryl is a woman of integrity so you can be certain that she will work hard to meet all of your real estate needs in an honest and forthcoming manner. Couple that with her excellent interpersonal skills and you’ve got a real winner! Anyone would be blessed to work with Cheryl Hammond and I wholeheartedly recommend her for your next real estate transaction.”



“Cheryl Hammond was one of the very first Realtors I can remember working with. In my first year in the business, Cheryl gave me some of the best advice I have received in this industry. Cheryl said, “Rob, you need to get a business coach.” 16 years later I am still regularly coached, I now coach others, and as a result I am in the Top 1% of Mortgage of Loan Originators in the United States. Thank you Cheryl!!!

The reason I share this is because the impact Cheryl has had on my life, and career, is a perfect example of how Cheryl Hammond works with all of her clients. I have been fortunate enough to work alongside Cheryl to help close to 100 families purchase homes and I have witnessed how Cheryl operates her business under the “give, ask, receive” philosophy time and time again.

Cheryl brings a very “healthy” and “personal” touch to her business coupled with exceptional, and effective, customer service. Cheryl is a woman of faith, and it shows in every aspect of her life. However, I ask the reader to not mistake faith and kindness for weakness. Cheryl is a highly skilled business professional with well over 1,000 successfully closed transactions to her name. Cheryl always places the needs of her clients at the forefront of her negotiations. Cheryl has an impeccable reputation, operates with integrity, and always “wins the deal” for her clients.

I share these truths with 100% confidence because I am not only fortunate enough to call Cheryl Hammond my business partner, and friend, I am also Cheryl Hammond’s past client. If I ever need a Real Estate agent to represent me, Cheryl Hammond would be my very first call.”



“I have known Cheryl Hammond for over twenty years. I taught her two sons when each was in first grade. She is a wonderful person and a great mother. Seven years ago, Cheryl was my Real Estate Agent and helped me locate and purchase a new home. Her support and extensive knowledge was invaluable to me. Cheryl was able to guide me through all the steps necessary to find and buy my new home. Cheryl is very easy to work with. She is very attuned to her clients needs. She goes above and beyond to make sure her clients are satisfied. Cheryl also keeps in touch after the purchase is concluded to check how things are going and if her clients have any future needs. I highly recommend Cheryl Hammond as a Realtor that can be counted on. I would be glad to use her skills to help me with future my real estate needs.”
