About Me: Experience Matters

I have always been passionate about excellence, achievement and results. In real estate, this means setting appropriate expectations and then exceeding them. I offer a level of knowledge, experience and insight that provides my clients with the competitive advantage they need to maximize their profits. Real estate is an art, a discipline and a way of life. With more than two decades of experience as a seasoned real estate professional and hundreds of successful real estate transactions, I look forward to each new client, and each new home.

Prior to beginning my career in real estate, I designed sportswear for several prominent companies and then launched Staccato, a successful knitwear company with showrooms in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Dallas. The design, marketing and business skills I accrued while running Staccato translated directly to real estate.

In preparing my clients' homes for the market, I use my design experience to oversee color selection, staging, and landscaping. My business and marketing skills help shape our marketing strategy. I help my clients through the process, from start to finish. I bring a unique combination of passion, skills, aesthetics and experience to the process.

Pro-active communication with clients, attention to detail and dedication to my clients' needs are integral in my business. I will always tell you what you should know, and not what you want to hear. My knowledge of the nuances of real estate transactions and continual analysis of the market contributes to my ability to price properties strategically.

With my comprehensive knowledge of the Oakland Hills real estate market, I develop flexible, customized strategies that ensure successful transactions for my clients. My style is efficient, professional, and approachable. My role is to help you maximize the return on your investment, and guide you through a complex process.

If you're considering buying a home in the Oakland Hills, or if you are selling and looking to move to a different neighborhood, I hope you'll contact me. Thank you for considering me!

Bought a home in 2012.

Sherry is not only a fantastic realtor, from the transactional point of view, but also great read of people and their unsaid/subconscious needs. After taking my wife and I through a few different open houses in various neighborhoods around Oakland, she knew that we were looking for a house in a sleepy neighborhood, with a good school, nice neighbors, and within reach of the fun things available in Oakland and across the bay. We had never heard of Redwood Heights before Sherry convinced us to look there. Our house and our neighborhood are exactly what we wanted. We've been here two years now and just love it and are so grateful to Sherry for everything she did for us.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $875K in Crestmont, Oakland, CA.

Sherry was amazing! She handled everything from beginning to end and all her recommendations ensured a quick sale for me. Sherry is savvy, hard-working, and a go-getter. She is extremely knowledgeable and will keep you informed and on track. We hit a few snags along the way which delayed getting the house on the market during an optimum time, but still managed to receive multiple bids after the first open house! Sherry will find a solution to every problem! I highly recommend her to sell your home!!  More Less

Sold a home in 2013.

Bottom line, she will she will sell your house! I chose Sherry as my agent as my (now deceased) father had recommended her to me. It was a difficult time for our family as we found ourselves in the position of needing to sell our family home (50+ years ) ASAP in order to fund our mother’s continued care. Thank goodness I found Sherry! She was knowledgeable and professional as well as kind and supportive. Early on in the process, we had some workers helping us clean out the house. When one of the workers asked who our agent was, I told him it was Sherry. He immediately responded, “Don’t worry, Sherry Benninger will sell your house! She will get the job done.” It turned out he was exactly correct. In a very short period of time, Sherry guided us through the steps necessary to get our house ready for sale. Sherry is finicky – she knows what needs to be done and will push until it gets accomplished. But all the attention to detail paid off, as in a matter of weeks, our house was on the market, and in a shorter time, was sold. Yes, there were some bumps along the road, but Sherry helped me work through them to completion. Bottom Line: Sherry B will sell your house! Call her, you won’t regret it.  More Less
