Ratings & Reviews

Cheryl recently helped us purchase our "forever" home. She is very knowledgeable of the local area. She also understood what we had in mind in terms of the types of homes and locations we were interested in seeing when she made recommendations. She is very timely and responsive, and an all around pleasure to work with.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Albany, NY.

My first experience with Cheryl was wonderful, she truly worked for me as a buyer. As a first time home buyer it was a stressful experience and she was there for all my concerns. I joined a match program and went to a few classes. After listening to them I realized Cheryl knew all these things they were teaching me, and I knew that I was going to reach out to her as soon as I began my search again. I would recommend her to all 1st time home buyers.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $200K in New Scotland, Albany, NY.

Cheryl help my fiancé and I find our first home, and really went above and beyond to make sure we got the best deal possible. She is very knowledgeable, hard working, and was devoted to us as her clients. She gave us great advice throughout. I would recommend Cheryl to anyone looking to find a home in the Capital District. Thank you Cheryl !

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Campus Area (University District), Albany, NY.

I used Cheryl to buy a home on 2014. She was able to show us an extensive range of properties in our price range in our neighborhoods of interest. She was also easy to contact and get responses from. This was our first home, so I don't have extensive experience in real estate agents. However, I have two major complaints:

1) We relied on her recommendations for lawyer and home inspector--both of which performed horribly (the inspector missed several obvious, expensive repairs in electrical and plumbing issues--the repairmen asked us if we actually had an inspection they were so obvious). The laywer refused to explain the purchase process and suggested we find another lawyer when we asked questions (we didn't, since we'd already signed paperwork agreeing to pay him a retainer if we went elsewhere).

2) She agreed to have the seller clean out certain items from the property, and confirmed with us at closing that this had been done. We found out several weeks after moving in had not been done.

Overall, she had good expertise in finding a good home in the Albany, NY area, but lackluster in all other areas of the home buying process. I would not recommend.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Albany, NY.

As a first time home buyer, I was not prepared for all the deadlines, documentation, constant communication between the funding agency and inspectors which are the realities of the purchasing process. I was very fortunate to inquire information concerning a property in Albany and introduced to Cheryl Lynn McCarthy. From the beginning of our relationship to the closing, Cheryl guided us through the process professionally, with a courtesy and attention far beyond our anticipation. If you have the fortune to work with Cheryl, you will be assured a productive and successful experience.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in East Greenbush, NY.

I was very cautious about buying my first home especially because I had so many things I was very specific about but once I met Cheryl I knew she would get me what I wanted. We looked at so many houses near and far and she wanted to make sure I got everything I wanted for the right price. This was the best experience I've had with a realtor and I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants a great house for an amazing price! Thanks Cheryl for everything !

Cheryl is extremely knowledgeable and professional, attentive and respectful. I couldn't ask for a better person to work with than Cheryl. She was patient, knowledgeable, and very responsive to any questions I had. I highly recommend Cheryl!

Sold a Multi Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Palmer Lake, CO.

We recently moved from New York to Colorado. Our moved required the sale of 2 homes we owned in New York. One property in Colonie and one in Indian Lake (our vacation home). I informed the our Bank of our intention to relocate and the bank officer that we deal with suggested C Mac Realty Group, LLC owned by Cheryl McCarthy. We contacted Cheryl and she responded immediately. We explained out move and to be in a timely fashion. Sheryl was very professional and outlined the whole process. Her working commission was well with in reason. Signs, brochures, internet and staging was all handled by C MAC Realty. The whole process went very smoothly and both homes were advertised and shown in a short amount of time. C MAC showed good knowledge and concern for the sale of our 2 properties. The ability of Cheryl to sell both of our homes quickly made it possible to transfer money to Colorado for the purchase of our new home there. It was so quick that we did not have to go to a lending institution for the additional money. Cheryl completed this task in a friendly and professional manner. We also created a great friendship with Cheryl through the process.

Thank you Cheryl,

Dave and Sandy Tenace

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Central Avenue, Albany, NY.

I have had a working relationship with Cheryl McCarthy since 2005. I haved purchased 3 investment properties through Cheryl's agency. She was resourceful and knowledgeable and I tapped into her extensive real estate and found good income producing properties and found reliable managers. More recently I listed 2 properties with Cheryl and she sold a four family home and a 2 family home for a fair price in the time frame that I needed. I value Cheryl's expertise and highly recommend her as a real estate professional.

Sold a home in 2005 in Pine Hills, Albany, NY 12208.

I had Cheryl McCarthy list my 2 properties, 572-574 Madison ave Albany NY in 2005. I was totally satisfied with her hard work and professional job in listing and the sale of both of them. I got less then what we listed them, but totally satisfied with her effort to get my asking price. I would refer her in a heart beat. Sincerely Anthony J Impellizzeri
