“Seniors need an Real estate professional and advocate to understand their specific needs in the difficult decision to sell and to move with family or to downsize to a smaller home/community.

I have worked with Seniors in a local Senior community and also have furthered my Real Estate education to include the SRES designation (SRES = Senior Real Estate Specialist).

Seniors need a Realtor who has patience, understanding and experience to provide a full package approach.

SRS is the full package!  No need to call multiple businesses. I offer a team of professionals to tackle whatever they need to sell their home. (example: they need someone to fix a leaky roof before they can sell and they have no idea whom to call and basically just too tired to deal with it…I have professionals who I will call for them…or a BIG one for Seniors is Downsizing…what to do with the 50 years worth of things they have accumulated…I have professionals that handle that, working with me together to ensure a smooth and hassle-free experience.”

Cheryl was absolutely amazing. She worked with us on all our needs and found us not one but two places that we loved. She went above and beyond in every aspect. I would recommend her services to anyone looking for an apartment. We originally found a place that ended up flooding and Cheryl was able to quickly find us another apartment so we were not homeless.


This was our first home purchase and Cheryl helped make It as painless as possible. She answered ail of our questions In a prompt and professional manner. She’s very laid back and friendly, which made it very easy to work with her. In fact, we chose her to represent …


I worked with Cheryl for over a month trying to find a condo. As a first time buyer, I could not have been more happy with my experience. Cheryl is knowledgeable, savvy, realistic, and well versed in the Chicago market; not to mention she is a tough broad. Cheryl will fight for you and protect you as her client. I cannot recommend Cheryl enough .
