Client Testimonials

If you want to purchase OR sell a home, Sherry is absolutely the BEST in the real estate business!! Since 2005, we have bought and sold homes with Sherry. With each transaction, we found the perfect next home, and the closing on the sale of our previous home went smoothly. As a buyer or seller, we have always come away from the closing a “winner.” She knows the business, inside-out, and will make selling/buying a home an enjoyable experience – not the stressful one that often accompanies such a major event. Based upon our experiences with Sherry, we can confidently proclaim that choosing her as our real estate agent was, and continues to be, a great decision!

Sherry is a genuine, kind and professional agent. She helped us work through the entire home purchase process seamlessly and was knowledgeable with the market and timeline of events. We appreciated the extra things Sherry did including providing candid recommendations on things to do before moving in. The before and after care was greatly appreciated. She helps match people’s lifestyles to a perfect home – definitely didn’t feel like a transaction as she is very personable. I would highly recommend anyone wanting a positive relationship with a knowledgeable and honest agent, to go with Sherry’s services.

Years ago, my parents had watched in amazement as Sherry and her husband completely restored a Queen Anne and an ancient barn, dating to the 1860s, in the Old Quad district of Santa Clara. When it came time recently for my parents to sell their 1906 home in Santa Clara, it was a natural fit to have Sherry represent them. Her knowledge of specific architectural details and her background with the local requirements concerning the Mills Act provided the expertise my parents needed to put their home of fifty-four years on the market. But Sherry didn’t stop there; she treated the whole transaction with the care she would have had the house been her own. She kept repeating that she wanted to get the best price for my parents, and she did. To prepare the home for sale within my parents’ limited timeframe, she scheduled and organized all of the details concerning improvements and reports. She also communicated with multiple family members with tact, clarity, and efficiency. My parents were very pleased with the whole outcome. Our family couldn’t have asked for a better representative to guide us through this transition.

Sherry was recommended to my wife and I by a close friend, and we lucky to have her as our beacon in successfully finding our next home.

From the time we met to closing escrow, it took us 10 months, and Sherry was always an active and engaged partner through the entire time, even though we had set a delayed timeline for the actual buying decision. She knew exactly what we were looking for, was patient with our various demands and constraints, including finding the most environment-friendly home/location, and she really took the pressure off us on the entire deal and process. She is now in our trust circle of family and friends, and we wouldn’t hesitate a second to recommend her to them or leverage her experience for another real estate requirement.

It was a pleasure working with Sherry on purchasing our house. Sherry is very trustworthy and straightforward when it comes to real estate details. She also helped us with the right mortgage broker and other services we needed and made it all seamless to us.

One key thing about Sherry that she doesn’t try to sell you on a house that doesn’t fit your needs. We have had several times houses that Sherry would discourage us from bidding on as they are not a good fit or would have an issue with them. At the end she helped us find the right house with the right offer, we feel blessed to have worked with her. Would highly recommend Sherry!

-Ahmed T.

We worked with a few other realtors before finally working with Sherry. And we decided to go with her for the actual purchase of our home. She is very knowledgeable, not just about the entire home-buying process, but also about the overall market condition and key home price drivers. This helped us to offer a more competitive bid that got accepted – not just simply putting in higher bids to try and outbid others while increasing our cash outflow. She was always prompt to respond to emails and text messages. She turned around changes to offer paperwork very quickly as we adjusted our offer, and kept us appraised at all stages of the negotiation and closing process. Even after the closing process was complete, she worked with us to help identify contractors for the remodeling we wanted to get done and offered very good recommendations on pricing and timeline for that work as well. We would definitely recommend her for anyone looking to buy a house in the Bay Area.

-Goutam M.

Thanks to sherry we had an amazing experience finding our gorgeous house! She was so incredibly insightful and knew exactly what we were looking for and what would fit in our budget. She helped us find our first home and we will be forever grateful for all the hard work she did for us! Thanks Sherry!!

-I. R.

We can’t say enough good things about Sherry – she has the highest ethics and greatly exceeded our expectations for both selling our previous home and purchasing our existing home. We would without reservation recommend her to our family and friends.

For the sale, she provided valuable input on what to fix and how to stage the home to appeal to potential buyers in my community. Most importantly, she negotiated on our behalf and was able to get a RECORD sales price for our neighborhood which greatly exceeded our expectations.

For the purchase, Sherry listened to us as we explained what we were looking for and was able to guide us to prospective neighborhoods. In the end, it was through her network that we were able to find the home we ended up purchasing. Again, she provided valuable advice on how to make our offer on the home.

Thank you Sherry, you are the best!

-Joshua

My wife and I hired Sherry to help us sell our house in San Jose. I knew Sherry from previous work connections so already knew she was a savvy salesperson and highly principled realtor. As are out-of-the-area owners we especially wanted someone we could trust to take care of the details. Relying on Sherry’s network we got the house quickly fixed up and on the market. After showings we had multiple offers. We settled about two weeks later for an amount substantially over asking price. All in all it was a pain free, stress free experience. Well done Sherry! It was a pleasure doing business with you.

Sherry’s advance planning for the sale of a complex property in San Jose made the process go smoothly and efficiently. Her knowledge of the area and real estate legal processes really helped. She did a great job in helping us evaluate the multiple offers we received to select the best one. She’s fun to work with but very professional, too.

-Anita S.

Sherry made it possible for us to buy our first house. She helped us through all the confusing aspects of the home search and purchasing process and made us feel very comfortable. Sherry has vast knowledge of the real estate market, including history and trends, and is very warm and personable. If you are even thinking about buying a house in this area, I highly recommend working with Sherry.

-Shawn E.

What can I say about Sherry other that she is the best!  From the moment she came into our lives, Sherry has been incredibly helpful, honest when you need it most, and genuinely caring about your future choices. She in no way pushed her own ideas or agenda, rushed us, or failed to show patience when we were not going to settle.

What’s more, she has gone above and beyond and continued to help us set up our new home and even provided us with access to her exclusive team of referrals for our home-based projects. We still see her regularly, long after our transaction closed.

Truly an exceptional broker and beyond that, a wonderful person who we are proud to call one of our close friends. Believe me, you want Sherry in your corner.

-Adam A.

Sherry is professional, knows her stuff, is to the point and gets things done. I came to her with a failed real estate issue and she managed to get going on something no one really had any experience with. Saying my situation was complicated, is putting it lightly. I’m not sure if she would want to be known for this expertise but, in particular, she handled one of the first San Jose TIC (Tenancy in Common) properties with even more complications of a Historic Landmark. Sherry made buyers and their realtors understand that it wasn’t as scary as they had thought and that the advantages of such ownership were numerous. She also chased after escrow officers and county folks to meet timelines. I recommend Sherry and I’ve given her name to numerous friends, as they originally did to me.

-Alex W.

My wife and I have known Sherry in a professional capacity for close to 10 years. We hired her for two home purchases and a home sale. She has been a pleasure and delight on every occasion we have worked with her. Sherry is trustworthy, patient, resourceful and on target with regards to price, timelines and evaluation of dependencies during a sale or purchase of a home. In addition to explaining the details of the process, she makes it a point to understand the needs and wants of her clients such that they are happy and satisfied at the end of the day. She has been extremely helpful with providing her views on the market, enabling me to make educated decisions that have always paid off.

-Vijay D.

Sherry helped us sell our mother’s house in Los Gatos. She was extremely helpful and gave us good guidance through some complex parts of the sale process. She was calm and professional at every turn. She was also quite pleasant to deal with. I would absolutely recommend her and without question. Signed, William Peters, another happy client of Sherry Hitchcock.

-William

As a first-time home buyer, the process can seem very intimidating. Sherry was extremely helpful and was willing to work within our tight budget and tight constraints. She gave us great service, offered no pressure, and was willing to work outside normal business hours to help us make a decision. As a result, we have been very happy in our new home, and still talk to Sherry on a regular basis. I would definitely recommend her to anyone buying or selling a house in the Bay Area!

-Darren M.

We hired Sherry to help sell our house in July 2014. She was personable, engaging and helped us to understand every step of the journey. Her advice and knowledge were invaluable, and resulted in a stress-free transaction above asking price. Thank you!

Sherry Hitchcock has mastered her profession. She is the best Realtor my husband and I have ever worked with. Knowledge, diligence, working above and beyond and anticipating what will be best for her clients throughout the transaction is the way Sherry does business. At no point does she become more interested in closing the deal than in doing what is best for her clients. Sherry is responsive, prompt and personable. When our deal required working through the night – my husband was in the States and I in Asia with a 15 hr time difference – Sherry just kept going, presented the offer on two hours of sleep and got us everything we wanted. It was a BEAUTIFUL thing.

-Dana H.

We have completed three real estate transactions with Sherry Hitchcock. Our first contact with Sherry in 2008 was when she was the selling agent and we were the buyer. She was knowledgeable, honest, engaged, and responsive. After that she have used only Sherry for our transactions.

In 2011, we purchased a bank-owned home in a difficult transaction that would not have been successful without Sherry’s diligence and expertise. In 2015, we sold a different home using Sherry as the selling agent. She educated us on the selling process, was very professional in engaging with prospective buyers & agents, and was a pleasure to work with throughout. We recommend Sherry very highly.

Lastly, neighbors used Sherry as a selling agent based on our recommendation. They were also very happy with the experience.

-James W.

I have worked with Sherry for many years. She has helped us sell homes for family members as well as the recent purchase of my own home. Sherry’s knowledge of the market is better than any other agent I’ve ever worked with and Sherry know how to get the deal done in this very competitive market.

-Mike R.

We worked with Sherry on both the purchase and sale of our house. We highly recommend her and would definitely work with her again. She has expert knowledge of the bay area real estate market, is extremely personable and frequently goes above and beyond the call of duty to find solutions that meet or exceed your needs while maintaining a high level of integrity.

-John B.

Sherry is an absolutely superior agent. My wife and I were impressed with her experience, accessibility, and commitment to going above and beyond. She not only helped us buy the right home, but she also took a keen interest in helping us make the transition to the new house with all that entails (painting etc.) after the transaction closed. I highly recommend her.

-J.S.

I’ve bought and sold a number of properties over the years, and had good experiences and bad with real estate agents.

My experience with Sherry was by far the best. She helped me get through some difficulties with getting my property on the market and was helpful and supportive throughout. Her marketing strategy was right on target and the property sold in three days with multiple offers.

Best of all, she is warm and welcoming and, potential buyers clearly felt that she really cared about them.

Thanks Sherry!

-Christopher K.

I searched for over a year to find an agent I wanted to handle the sale of my historic property. Sherry proved to be worth the wait as she worked tirelessly throughout the process to find the right buyer. Uniquely knowledgeable about historic properties, always professional, and meticulously thorough, Sherry kept me informed every step of the way, which was invaluable to me as a first-time seller. Without hesitation, I highly recommend Sherry Hitchcock.

My husband and I recently purchased our home and were blessed to have worked with Sherry Hitchock. Her knowledge of the market, the neighborhoods, and working relationship with other realtors made searching for a home a fun and great experience. She guided us along the way and went above and beyond to help us find our home. I highly encourage anyone looking for a realtor to contact Sherry. You will see, she is great!

-Johanna C.

Sherry helped us sell our mother’s house in Monte Sereno. She was extremely helpful and gave us good guidance through some complex parts of the sale process. She was calm and professional at every turn. She was also quite pleasant to deal with. I would absolutely recommend her and without question

-William P.

We were lucky to meet Sherry at an open house when we started looking for a house. As first time homebuyers we did not know many things about real estate transactions, and Sherry walked us seamlessly through the whole process.

Sherry is very knowledgeable, professional and personable and walked us through every step of both the buying and selling transactions. She worked with us on details about appropriate work to do on both houses and was always responsive to questions and concerns. She has deep knowledge of the market and how best to help both buyers and sellers, and we feel lucky to have been able to work with her!

-J. I.

We hired Sherry to handle the sale of our previous property and the purchase of our new one, not necessary in that order. We were successful on both fronts, despite the relative softness of the market where we sold, and the high demand, highly competitive area where we bought. We received multiple offers and sold our place above listed price in 3 days, while we overcame 15 other bids to get the house we wanted at our first attempt.

Sherry was outstanding in managing the entire process in both cases, providing decisive and strategic insight. She went well beyond what we would have expected from a real estate agent. Sherry proactively suggested and managed 3rd party contractors, while monitoring our lender actions and diligently driving the various inspections and paperwork, while finding the time to keep us up to date on daily basis.

We are now enjoying our new home, happy and grateful to Sherry.

-Harold G.

She helped us find our first home with so much ease. Not only was Sherry very knowledgeable, her high level of professionalism and her negotiation skills are outstanding. She was always responsive, enthusiastic, and patient. Sherry is great to do business with; our experience with her was absolutely fantastic.

I will continue to refer her because I am confident she will take care of business.

Thank you Sherry for the wonderful real estate experience.

-S. K.

Sherry was responsive and knowledgeable from start to finish with the sale of our home. We chose her because of her familiarity with our neighborhood and prior successful sales in our unique area of San Jose. We were extremely confident with her skill as a realtor. She was totally organized and earned our trust from the first meeting to discuss the marketing of our home. We had a quick successful sale with no complications.

-V.

Sherry is a fantastic, responsible, trustworthy, always available (I really mean it!), and 100% committed agent!
We moved to Silicon Valley from Europe, having no idea at all about real-estate in the US, especially about the crazy local market. Sherry walked us through the buying process, gave us honest advice, and answered all our questions in greatest detail. We appreciate very much that she was so patient with us for several months that it took us to understand the realities of the local market and put in multiple bids. The fact that Sherry was neither pushy nor did she seem to be money driven we perceived as extremely pleasant. She surely wanted to assist us to find a new home for our family. When we finally bought a house with her help, Sherry still continued to be available to us so that we would have a smooth move into our new home. Thank you, Sherry!

Sherry helped my husband and me find our very first home. We feel so lucky to have gotten to work with her! We decided to work with Sherry as we were interested in historic houses/neighborhoods, with which she is very familiar. As tech professionals, it was also important to us to work with an agent who could easily adapt to our working styles and is dependable, responsive and data-driven. Sherry was great for us in this regard and working with her, we could certainly tell that in her past career she was an executive that really got things done.

Sherry remained patient and optimistic while we looked at many homes together across many months. Never did we feel like she was in it for the money – in fact, she talked us out of writing offers on several houses after identifying subtle but significant issues in the disclosures. She is honest, trustworthy and reliable. We could always tell she is in the business because she loves houses and enjoys the process of matching people up to their dream homes.
We ended up writing only one offer on one house, which is a testament to Sherry’s market knowledge and strong intuition. As mentioned above, we were first time homebuyers who are very detail-oriented to boot, and Sherry did an excellent job patiently and thoroughly educating us through the process. We also inadvertently put her into a big time crunch due to our tough work schedules at the time, and she worked day and night to complete and present our offer on time. She’s stayed in touch with us since closing on our house and has referred us to contractors and other services. We now consider her a friend and look forward to showing her our home once we’re fully moved in. Thank you, Sherry!
