They did a wonderful job educating us about the area and were very knowledgeable about the process and lead us through with ease. They were very responsive and easy to get a hold of. Thumbs up!

Sold a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $725K in Studio City, North Hollywood, CA.
Anyone that comes upon Jeff and Cheryl Fox has simply found the Best. The knowledge and experience between the two is unparalleled. It's truly like getting two for the price of one. They are both true professionals and I would not consider anyone else for my real estate needs.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $450K in Sylmar, Sylmar, CA.
Cheryl Fox sold our house in two days for an all-cash offer at a price well above the current market value, and managed the negotiations so well that we received the full amount of the offer at settlement. We were operating under severe time constraints since we needed to move from California to Georgia within 30 days of listing our property. Cheryl and Jeff managed the entire process so well that we had our proceeds in hand 34 days after listing.

I am a real estate investor and have bought or sold houses in California, Maryland, Virginia and Georgia. I know and have worked with a lot of real estate agents. I consider myself very knowledgeable about real estate. When it came to selling our personal residence, I wanted the very best. I got that with Cheryl and Jeff Fox, who far surpass me in knowledge.

I knew several years ahead that the time would come when we would sell our house, so I researched agents meticulously. Cheryl and Jeff have a well-established reputation for selling houses fast and at the best price the market will allow. I talked to several other agents over the years, including some friends and acquaintances of our family, but found no one who could match Cheryl and Jeff's expertise in all phases of the process.

Cheryl is a dynamo. She works extremely hard for you and is 100 percent on your side. She protects your interests with total honesty and amazing skill and determination. She knows exactly what to do to get the best price for your property and how to keep the transaction from going off the rails.

I had worked for three months before listing getting my property ready, and thought I had it in pretty good shape. Cheryl pointed out several things I missed and put me to work getting them fixed. She wasn't afraid to tell us when we were holding up the process, and her willingness to push everyone along, ourselves included, paid off very well for us.

Cheryl and Jeff fully deserve the "masterful" rating above in process expertise. The process has become extremely complex over the years, especially in California. The pitfalls and minefields have multiplied. Cheryl knows them all in depth, and can explain clearly why her proposed course of action makes sense.

One factor that really moved our sale forward was the description of the property. We owned a nice house in a great location, but it was a challenge to capture the highlights and present them effectively and without exaggeration. In buying properties over the last three years, I've looked at tens of thousands of listings, and considered myself fairly expert at preparing a convincing description. I gave Cheryl my draft description, and she and Jeff improved on it considerably. We were literally swamped with buyers in the first two days after listing, receiving multiple offers. We accepted one of the all-cash offers near the end of the second day. Cheryl's biggest problem was dealing with all the buyers who were so disappointed that they didn't get the house, but as always, she handled that with skill and grace.

Another "save" she performed had to do with our spa equipment. The booster pump was not working, and about eight weeks before listing, I started the process of getting it replaced. A pool contractor that I had dealt with for 15 years failed to make three appointments over three weeks, then sent a total idiot out to try to do the work. I hired another contractor who replaced the motor, determined that the control system wasn't working, promised to come right back and fix it, and never did over a three-week period of followup calls and emails. I then called a company that runs the largest pool repair operation in California, and their technician told me he couldn't fix the problem, as it was an electrical problem, which I knew it wasn't.

So now we were two days away from the inspection, and I had totally failed to fix a problem that would probably cost us a fair chunk of money in the negotiations. I called Cheryl with the bad news, and she said she knew someone who was a master pool troubleshooter. Her guy showed up later that afternoon and fixed the problem in 20 minutes.

At the end, Cheryl said that ours was one of the smoothest sales she had ever handled. That comment in itself speaks volumes, because from our perspective, there were several bumps on the road that Cheryl smoothed out, like finding a termite fumigator who could start a tenting operation in two days. What she was really saying is that she is experienced in handling sales with many more complications than ours, and managing them to a successful outcome.

Sold a home in 2013.
Cheryl Fox has been our CPA and prepared our personal and business taxes for years. She has our complete trust in every aspect of our financial issues. On the real estate side, Cheryl and Jeff have sold two homes for us that went extremely smooth and quick. The most recent sale was a difficult situation with many unknown factors and a critically short time frame. We were facing foreclosure, or short-sale, but with their expertise, hard work, knowledge of the real estate laws, and working with our loan company, they managed not only to sell our home and keep us out of foreclosure but close the sale with a profit in our pocket!! Cheryl and Jeff are friends, professionals, and extremely hard working people, and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome of our real estate experience!!! If you are looking for a real estate agent, our advice is to stop looking and call Cheryl and Jeff. If you don’t, you are wasting your time, your energy, and the opportunity to have the best in their business on your team.

Bought a home in 2013.
Jeff and Cheryl are the best real estate agents I have ever dealt with. They have incredible knowledge of the inventory available and are able to match to your needs, as well as knowledge of the process to get the deal done. They spent a lot of time with me to find what I was looking for and at no time was I pressured.

However, I would say that most importantly Jeff and Cheryl are truly customer satisfaction driven. A lot of sales people talk about being customer satisfaction driven, when in fact they are only interested in making the deal.

So if you are looking for somebody who has your interests and satisfaction as their primary goal, I highly recommend Jeff and Cheryl.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $575K in Mar Vista, Los Angeles, CA.
Helped me as the administrator of my brother's estate with the probate sale of his house. The house was at one time a cute, small pre-World War II house in a desirable location. From years of neglect the house was in poor shape with many issues going with the need to sell it "as is" in the probate sale. Jeff and Cheryl provided a great deal of personal attention. They advised me about the local market comps, walked me step by step through the preparation of the paperwork to properly disclose the condition of the house, advised me as to what repairs to do or not do, arranged for a handyman to do some of the minor repairs, answered my many questions as a real estate novice throughout the process, firmly represented the estate's interests in receiving and responding to the bids made on the house, and negotiated with competing overbidders to help resolve some confusion at the probate court hearing. The house sold for an overbid that was higher than the court-ordered assessed value of the house: a pleasant surprise for all concerned.

Sold a home in 2013.
Cheryl,

I am writing you to say THANK YOU for the excellent work you performed in selling my daughter's home. Your help in working with my daughter and the buyer was a Godsend to us. Not having sold a home before, my daughter had many reservations and issues in getting this done. Your expertise and professionalism saved us time and time again, not to mention our sanity. We wish you could be here to help her relocate in the Bay area. If we could give you a sixth star in the five star rating system we would do it. You are wonderful. Thank you so much for all of your hard work.

Yours gratefully,

Rita Honkala

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Castaic, CA.
This was our first home buying experience so going into this entire process was pretty scary and exciting at the same time. Both Jeff and Cheryl reassured us that everything will work out fine and they were not kidding! We can honestly say that both Cheryl and Jeff are the most caring, knowledgeable, and sweetest agents we could have ever asked for. Not only are they masters in the field of real estate but they both made sure that every single aspect of our home buying process was taken care of in the most professional and timely manner. We will without a doubt, be referring them to our friends and family and look forward to keeping them in our lives not only as agents but as close friends!

Thank you again for all your hard work,

Debbie and Alex

Bought a home in 2011.
My husband and I are first time home buyers, we’ve been with other realtors and we saw how excellent realtors they are compared to others. They walk us through the whole process of home buying, educated us on a lot of things, gave us their educated and calculated opinion, and guide us in all decisions we made. We felt like they are our family and that they work on our benefit, not theirs, nor the seller. They seek the possibilities of each request we asked from them before saying no, or that it cannot be done. And they can also make things happen as well sometimes. I definitely recommend them to all my friends and family and love and adore them so much.
