While many real estate agents in Orange County have claimed a bad real estate economy has kept them from selling their clients homes, Cheryl Marquis has used the struggling market to her advantage! By properly positioning and marketing her clients homes, as well as listing them at realistic prices (Cheryl is honest with each of her client’s about their home’s worth and will not quote a high, inaccurate listing price just to get the listing), and working tirelessly to take care of her client’s professional needs, Cheryl sold SEVENTEEN (17!!) Orange County homes in 2012!

Yes, 10 homes! Ranging in prices from $250,000 to $4.5 million, Cheryl made sure that each one of her client’s was beyond satisfied with the home-selling process as well as the sales price. One of her clients was going through a short sale, which can be a challenging and stressful process. With her team of short sale experts at her side, Cheryl was able to help her clients get approval from the bank and avoid the dreaded foreclosure process, which would have wreaked havoc on the credit scores of her lovely clients and their young family, possibly preventing them from buying their dream home down the road.

Cheryl also listed a gorgeous gem of a home in Irvine Cove, California. Nestled above the beautiful waters of the Pacific Ocean with a view to die for, Cheryl also brought in the buyers for this listing. Due to the high sales price and the ultra-chic location of the home, Cheryl’s transaction was featured in an article in the Orange County Business Journal.

Reflecting the Orange County real estate market, the majority of Cheryl’s 17 home sales in 2012 were in the $500,000 – $700,000 range. These lovely single family homes were sold at a great price — for both the sellers and buyers! While home prices in Orange County have been steadily increasing over the last year, Cheryl feels confident to state that her home-selling clients were very pleased with the offers she brought in and with their eventual closing price.

Cheryl looks forward to making 2013 an even better year for her wonderful clients! If you want your home SOLD for a great price, contact Cheryl today.
