Cheryl was very helpful in making this transaction happen. She navagated the path between myself, the listing agent and the Fannie Mae process in a way that was much simplier then I thought it would be. She and her team were responsive to my questions and kept me posted along the way. Many parts of the transactions actually took place while I was in Mexico, yet it all went smoothly. I enjoyed working with Cheryl and her team.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Anderson Island, WA.
Cheryl is an amazing realtor! She sold our house in less than 3 weeks. We received two really great offers on the same day (after the peak season had ended) and she helped us work through the details in a way that helped us get the most for our property with the least amount of hassle and worry on our part. We found out she had many closings going on at once but she made us feel that we were her only customer and her top priority.

You two were wonderful to work with. No matter what we had to deal with. I feel like my family has grown...I am looking forward to seeing your new project when it is finished.
Cheryl did a great job pricing and selling the lot. She nicely showcased the lot and its unique features. Smoothly handled the negotiation of the sale and followed up on completing escrow. We appreciate her great service for our family.

Cheryl treats her clients like family, and makes buying real estate a pleasurable, positive experience. She makes herself readily available, as if you are her only client. She is a pleasure to work with!

This was my fourth purchase and Cheryl is the best realtor I started searching for houses in 2010 and found a house online that I fell in love with right away. I contacted Cheryl, she picked me up at the ferry and it didn’t take to realize I had made the right choice contacting her. Cheryl took me to my dream home and then a guided tour around the island giving the 411 on island living. We made an offer which was very fair but the seller wanted more and I was not willing to pay twice the values for the house. We looked at other home but nothing really resonated with me. About six months later another came available that I love and would work well for me. It was going into foreclosure and I made an offer and the law firm handling the sale declined my offer. About seven months later the owner of the first lowered the price to what I had offered almost a year before and made another offer and the seller would not complete the paperwork in the required time and amendment after amendment with back and forth for 3 months and I finally gave up. Cheryl never stopped working to see if we could get the seller moving ( by this time the house had been for sale for almost three years) so the offer died on the vine due to sellers lack of completing the paperwork in the required times. The second house had gone through foreclosure and was back on the market for 30k less than I had offered7 month earlier. I was out of town on a business trip and Cheryl called me and said it was back on the market and I said let’s make this happen. It was now a Fannie Mae sale and Cheryl got right on it and I closed 4 days ago. Not only do I have a great Realtor but a good friend and neighbor. Her knowledge of Anderson Island and where and who to see to get things done is invaluable.

My wife and I worked with Real Living & Cheryl Steffen last month to locate and purchase a home on Anderson Island. Chery was professional, knowledgeable and easy to work with. We highly recommend her.
Bought a Vacant Land home in 2011 for approximately $200K in Anderson Island, WA.
Real Living & Cheryl Steffen made our purchase work! Cheryl listened to our needs and showed us houses that were appropriate. After we chose one, we had trouble with our lender. She stepped in and helped with advice and recommendations which worked out well for us. She really went out of her way to expedite this buying process. When we decide to move again, we will definately choose Cheryl Steffen and Real Living!

From the moment we met Cheryl to look at island property, we knew she was the perfect real estate agent for us. Cheryl has tremendous integrity and brings a wealth of expertise into the discussion. She really knows the island from shore to shore, and Cheryl spent more than one afternoon as chauffeur to introduce us to Anderson Island and the incredible people who call it home. Cheryl truly listens to clients and provides valuable input to help them find the best fit. Thanks to Cheryl, we have a wonderful parcel of property to build our future on Anderson Island!
I have been a builder on Anderson Island for over 30 yrs, and have worked with many real estate agents. I believe Cheryl is so successful, because she has great people skills, and truly cares, for her customers needs. Cheryl has a shining personality, and a great community spirit, for what is not only best fo her customers, but for the island people as well.
