“Second To None”
“I write this review to offer insight for someone searching for a real estate agent in the area of Grass Valley, CA.  This is the third time that Cheryl has represented my wife and me buying or selling a home.  There are six “D” words that afford a great litmus test for choosing Cheryl Rellstab to be your realtor.

  • Dependable: Cheryl delivers what she promises.
  • Direct: Incisive questions are asked in order to pinpoint your deepest desires and goals.
  • Dedicated: Extremely dedicated to her career as a real estate professional concentrating on you and what you need to accomplish rather than focusing on herself.
  • Diligent: Look at the challenges in today’s world and you definitely want a realtor who is diligent.
  • Diplomatic: A pro who exceeds the ability to “employ tact and conciliation” in times of stress.
  • Determined: Resolute to do whatever needs to be done to help accomplish your ultimate goal of buying or selling.

Julie and the entire office staff are thoughtful, polite and professional and always keeping you informed and updated. Lastly, Cheryl’s moral fiber is of the highest integrity who has a heart the size of the universe.

P.S.  Now I am crying in my soup because I won’t get one of her pies.  Love you all.”

-Gregg and Kim Steitz

“Efficiant and Enormously Helpful!”
“Cheryl assisted us with the sale of our house in 2011. She was efficient, enormously helpful, and brought about the very results for which we had hoped.
-Bruce Bonlinger

“She is the one you need”
“I recently engaged Cheryl to sell my family home in down town Grass Valley. In a difficult market Cheryl marketed the home for full asking price by being relentless with her marketing effort. If you are looking for an “order taker” Cheryl is likely not your broker. On the other hand if you are looking for someone that advertises in multiple media, holds your property open over and over and networks with other real estate professionals, she is the one you need.By the way her motto about pies is true. She is a great baker of apple and lemon meringue pies!”
-Rev Johnson

“Thank you for all for your diligent and professional help!”
“Cheryl, Haidee, Margaret & Kari,

Thank you all for your diligent and professional help on the uphill climb of selling our house in Nevada City. Doing is long-distance was very stressful for us- alaong with the 6 years of market worries. We greatly appreciate all your hard work and persistence (and near-saintly patience) that helped the whole process run smoothly. You’re a great team to work with!”
-Diane and Grant Wunsch

“We are grateful every day!”

“You made an excellent “read” of our needs”!
”Thank you so much for driving us by the house and working so hard to make it all come about. You made an excellent “read” of our needs; it suits us both to a T! “Damn,” I thought, “She is good!”

  –Kathy and Bill Athow

“She always had a smile and energy, day after day showing us houses”
“Cheryl Rellstab is an outstanding person and realtor. We are so happy Cheryl found the perfect house for us. It was not an easy task for her but she always had a smile and energy, day after day showing up houses. She is both my friend and realtor and I have recommended her to our friends. She helped us through a very difficult purchase and made it easy for us.”
-Dian and Pat Weindel

“With integrity, efficiency and sensitivity”
“We are definitely wary of realtors, having read Bruce Williams’ book, etc. But lucky for us, Cheryl didn’t fit that mold at all. With integrity, efficiency and sensitivity, she helped us through a difficult purchase, and then she found the perfect buyer for our house without even putting it on the market. We have nothing but good things to say about Cheryl. She is a talented, honest realtor with a good heart and a special gift for matching the right house to the right buyer.”

-Kathleen and Mark Fenton

“Cheryl has great professional and market knowledge”

-Peter Starren and Beverly Mobley

“Words can’t begin to express how much we appreciate ALL you did”
“Cheryl, you are THE BEST! Words can’t begin to express how much we appreciate ALL you did to help us sell our home. Only an unselfish person like you would put up with all the challenges we encountered in selling this home. Thanks for your support, encouragement and determination to “stay with us” through it all. We are deeply grateful.”

-Warren and Kathy Moyer

“Cheryl, Thank You…”
Cheryl, Thank you! For so many things! The wonderful banana cream pie, for your time evaluating our home, and for the gift of Kevy! We enjoyed working you when we purchased our home and look forward to doing so again when we move on.
-Dean and Sheryl Haumschilt

“It was a pleasure to work with you”
Cheryl it was a pleasure to work with you and your team both buying and selling!
Thank you SO much for bringing us a buyer and helping us close. You are a blessing. You really showed what personal service is all about. Jumping in at the end of the sale and closing the deal was a God send. Thanks so very much!
-Bill and Eva James

“The hardest working team”
The hardest working team of professional residential sales people I have used. Deep knowledge of the market and high promotional skills! I will use she and her team again when I am back in the residential market.
-Rey Johnson

“Super agent”
Super agent, she fought to the death on a deal that had multiple offers and she is helping me sell my house currently. Local knowledge and knowing the entire town pretty much are just a few of the reasons i chose Cheryl 🙂
-Spence Apple

“Sold our rental in no time”
Cheryl has sold our rental in no time, and is currently helping to sell our home in Grass Valley. She knows the area and the local market trends very well, gives good advice, but without pressure. She has been very patient with us during the process. She is a pleasure to work with. Good person overall.
-Iz Olmez

“Cheryl did a great job”
Cheryl did a great job in getting my house sold. Although I think it sold for less than its value, I don’t blame Cheryl as the real estate market in the area was very slow in coming out of the “Great Recession” and the burst housing bubble. Cheryl is very knowledgeable, very upbeat and is a true RE  professional in every respect.
-Bruce Hunt

“A very pleasant personality”
A very pleasant personality & positive thinker. You will be friends when you are done. She is honest & trustworthy. Just ask anyone here locally & you will always get a positive response.
-Margie Brooks

“I can’t say enough about Cheryl”
I can’t say enough about Cheryl. She helped me sell my home in a very challenging market for an acceptable price. Her professionalism and guidance were critical in helping me sell my house. I want to add that I’m from the Bay Area and Grass Valley was our second home so I really needed someone  local I could trust and depend. I had worked with a couple of other agents in the area previously and was not happy. Cheryl has so much experience in the Nevada County market and she was certainly the right choice for us. If you are looking for someone with experience who can get the job done and is an absolute pleasure to work with Cheryl Rellstab is an excellent choice.
-Elyce Klein

“The best realtor I’ve ever worked with”
Cheryl is the best realtor I’ve ever worked with. She is tenacious, gracious, and ethical. When selling my home, she ensured all matters were taken care of and sold the home in just a few days after listing the property - escrow closed in less than 30 days without a hitch. When I was ready to  purchase another home, Cheryl found me my dream house for a great price! 
-Jeanne Kessler

“Invaluable assistance”
Cheryl provided us with invaluable assistance in first renting and then selling our home on Woodpecker Point in Nevada City, CA. She made every step of the process as easy as pie! We will certainly recommend Cheryl to our friends and use her services again if we need a professional realtor’s  services in the future.
-Ken and Akiko Myers

“Made herself available”
We interviewed 5 area brokers before we decided to list our house with Cheryl. She recommended an excellent listing price & made herself available on a Sunday when none of the buyers agents were available to show the house to the potential buyers for the 2nd time. Cheryl was one that negotiating selling price & closed the sale!! 

“Is very honest & ethical”
Cheryl Rellstab Has Many years of experience, is very honest & ethical. She has been a top seller in the area for many years , knows what she is doing.. and works very hard to accommodate all concerned in her transactions.
-Donald R McIntyre

“An innate ability to relate to her clients’ needs”
Cheryl Rellstab is quite simply one of the best realtors we have worked with in our 40+ years of buying and selling homes in various areas of the country.  She maintains a thorough, up-to-date knowledge of the Nevada County real estate market.  Combined with an innate ability to relate to her clients’ needs and desires in a home, she expertly guided us through the buying process and made the experience enjoyable as well as successful.  We would highly recommend Cheryl to anyone who is looking for the best realtor in the market.
-Rich and Diane Langemach

“She is diligent, patient and perceptive”
Cheryl Rellstab listened to what I wanted and directed me to the right house on two different occasions.  She knows her inventory and is on top of it.  She is willing to look and look and look if necessary, as was demonstrated by the 8 years that it took for us to find our current home.  She is  diligent, patient and perceptive.  I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.  Besides, she makes the best food in town at her open houses!
