Diane and Grant Wunsch

Thank you all for your diligent and professional help on the uphill climb of selling our house in Nevada City. Doing this long-distance was very stressful for us- along 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!

Kathy and Bill Athow

“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!”

Dian and Pat Weindel

“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.”

Kathleen and Mark Fenton

“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.”

Peter Starren and Beverly Mobley

“Cheryl has great professional and market knowledge”
“Selling a home in one town and buying in another is always stressful. In our case, it also meant moving across the country. Cheryl has great professional and market knowledge, but her timely, reliable, and complete communication made us very happy new Nevada County homeowners!”

“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!”

“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.
1. Dependable: Cheryl delivers what she promises.
2: Direct: Incisive questions are asked in order to pinpoint your deepest desires and goals.
3: 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.
4: Diligent: Look at the challenges in today’s world and you definitely want a realtor who is diligent.
5: Diplomatic: A pro who exceeds the ability to “employ tact and conciliation” in times of stress.
6: 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.
