"Cheryl and Lori are an amazing team! We cannot say enough great things about our experience working with them. We sold our house and were able to close on our dream home all within a six-week period! It was such a seamless process even with the crazy market right now. We enjoyed having two experts with many years of experience work with us to answer all of our questions. They treated us with the utmost care and really listened to our needs. Most importantly to us, they always responded to us in a very timely manner. They also have a great team of stagers, contractors, and loan agents that they work with. These two are truly best-in-class profession...— Jessie and Jonathan R.
Cheryl was very communicative and quick to respond to all of my questions. As a first-time buyer, she helped me prepare and kept me informed of all the different scenarios that come with buying a new home. Cheryl went above and beyond and I definitely recommend and will use her for future home purchases.— Lisa G.
Cheryl Hata is a true professional. She spent real quality time talking to us so she had a good understanding of what we were looking for. She patiently researched, attended broker tours, and then recommend which open houses to attend. My husband and I both work and had a lot of business travel so Cheryl made the search process so easy to blend in with our schedule. She patiently helped us through four offers, and we are so very happy with our home! We started out in a business relationship but after the time we spent with her searching for the perfect forever home for my family and I, I now consider her to be a dear friend. Thank you, Cheryl!— Julie & Brad M.
I highly recommend Cheryl Hata as one the best real estate agents in Orinda. She went above and beyond at every step of the way during our recent real estate transaction in leasing out our long-time home in Orinda. She is extremely knowledgeable on the Orinda, Moraga and Lafayette market and has a huge network of contractors. Cheryl is very detailed oriented, has a great attitude and is very proactive. I highly recommend Cheryl for any of your real estate needs, on either the buy/sell or lease side. She gets my 5-star rating every day.— Kim E.
Cheryl has been an absolutely enormous help to our family as we recently relocated to Orinda, CA from outside the Bay Area. She’s helped us with two transactions - first a rental, and then a purchase - and her guidance and knowledge of the area has helped us make a smooth transition into two new homes. Both properties required updates, and Cheryl’s local contact made sure we got the right renovations, on-time and at a great price. In this difficult market for buyers, we couldn’t recommend Cheryl more highly.— Steve & Amanda S.
Cheryl is an absolute star and we can’t imagine having a better agent to partner with! From the moment we met her she worked tirelessly on our behalf, and it took no time at all before her intimate knowledge of the Bay Area market, combined with her unparalleled skills at coordinating all of the moving parts, paid dividends. Cheryl’s experience and insight into the market helped us to seamlessly navigate the many challenges that cropped up, and her efficiency and responsiveness truly set her apart from others. We feel fortunate to have worked with such a personable and skilled professional.— Jerry W.
