Client Reviews

Tom & Elisa, "This review is long overdue, but well deserved. Cheryl and Jen helped my wife and I find our dream home in Austin after my company relocated us to the area from DC. They were very knowledgeable about the Austin real estate market and showed us several great properties. We appreciated their knowledge of local regulations which came in handy to quickly resolve a tricky septic tank issue with the sellers. Two years later, I was relocated again by my company and they quickly found a buyer for asking price. Cheryl and Jen were awesome team to work with. They are the best real estate agents in Austin!" February 6, 2019

Jack Bissett, Owner, Austin Infectious Disease Consultants, Cheryl Albanese and Jen Templeton recently helped me sell my home. They worked as a team and they were enormously helpful throughout the entire process. They helped identify all of the things that needed to be done in preparation for putting the house on the market and helped connect me with the various professionals to do those projects. They were also available to oversee several of the make ready projects when I was unable to be there. They assisted with setting the appropriate price and did a great job showing the house to prospective buyers. My house was sold after only 12 days on the market. I can only give them my highest recommendation and I will definitely use them again for any future real estate purchase or sale! January 26, 2019

Sean Bauld, Chief Experiment Officer spxk.  I have had the opportunity in my travels to work with realtors across the country buying and selling. I have even sold fsbo when needed. Cheryl is great! Always prepared. Hard working. Great listening skills. Great approach to the market and sales. Realtors frequently sound the same, but she delivers. The best marketing, I have seen. The best social media I have seen and more. Can't recommend highly enough! April 26, 2018

Monica R. Beauford. I've never seen a realtor work harder. Cheryl really hustled to make sure every aspect of selling to buying our properties was absolute perfection. It's refreshing! She is extremely detail oriented, responsive and keeps everyone involved, lenders included, on the ball to ensure deadlines are met. She's fully exceeded my expectations. Our house was under contract and she helped put a contingent offer in on another home and made our relocation seamless. We went from one house straight into another. I had anticipated 2 moves but not if she had anything to do with it. Above all, what impressed me the most, was the constant, consistent communication. She had answers to questions before I could even come up with them. We always knew what was going on and how she was handing the contracts. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention her positive attitude and willingness to please clients. She's just a pleasure to be around too. March 14, 2018

Ronald Beauford, Regional Sales Director Western US at Caldera Medical.  Thank you so much for going above and beyond selling our home and finding us a new one! We appreciate it so so very much! Ron and Monica - March 2018

Lori Lux, Registered Nurse @ CTH.  Cheryl went above and beyond our expectations for selling our home. Working with her was truly a pleasure. From start to finish she was very professional and knowledgeable and responsive. Cheryl is caring and wants the best for her clients. She was always available and on time and did a superb job. She is very knowledgeable in the housing market and kept us updated throughout the entire process. Cheryl was always timely and we could not have asked for a greater agent. She is detailed oriented and excellent to work with. We loved having her market and sell our home. I would 100% use Cheryl again in the future and totally recommend her.  July 20, 2017

Thomas W. Lewis, Attorney at Law.  Cheryl is a consummate real estate professional who exhibits dynamic drive and relentless energy. My circumstances required me to move before I was able to sell my house, or even make it ready. Cheryl and her partner, Jennifer Templeton, went beyond the efforts of a typical real estate agent by personally attending to several details of making my house ready...from getting contractor bids, to personally overseeing repairs and renovations. Without her efforts, my home sale would have been very difficult. Needless-to-say, it was not only simple, but it sold in under two weeks! Tap into Cheryl's tremendous skills if you seek the best Realtor services in Austin!  July 15, 2017

Georgia Dailey.  My husband and I used Cheryl to sell our home in Bee Creek Estates in the summer of 2016. Cheryl, and her partner Jen, are a pleasure to work with. They are extremely professional, personable, knowledgeable, attentive, timely, and hard-working, all while staying very positive throughout the process. They know what it takes to market and sell a home. Their suggestions for the staging of our home to maximize its potential were spot-on. The professional photos were awesome and the brochures they designed were beautiful. They came for every showing. They followed up with the other realtors and with us after getting the feedback. They marketed our home through varieties of avenues. Once we had a contract on the house, they kicked into even higher gear to ensure that nothing fell through the cracks. We felt that they held our hand through the entire process. They are awesome! We'd recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the area!  September 22, 2016

Janet Dietrich, Senior Managing Director.  Cheryl was just fantastic to work with and we highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy/sell in the Austin area, including properties on Lake Travis/Lake Austin. She was very professional, proactive, thoughtful, organized, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with too! She establishes great relationships with her clients! We were in a different city through most of our process and she made it so incredibly easy for us, October 27, 2015.

Erin Cromleigh, Financial Analyst at Railroad Commission of Texas.   We would highly recommend Cheryl to anyone looking in the Austin and surrounding areas. We had such a large search area and she was always available no matter where the home was located. She was very professional and very knowledgeable with regards to any questions we had about the home selling and buying process as well as the areas we were searching in. We feel very fortunate to have had her as our realtor. It was such a pleasure working with her. If and when we decide to sell and buy again we will definitely be giving Cheryl a call.  September 27, 2015.

Charles Durham, Counter Sales at Hill Country Electric Supply.   Cheryl is a very helpful and caring person to help anyone find a beautiful home. I have done business with her for two years now and very satisfied with the results. Couldn't ask for more from an experienced realtor!  I highly recommend Cheryl. July 15, 2015.

Dave Laird Visual Effects Artist at charlieuniformtango.  Cheryl Albanese helped me to find my dream home! And it wasn't easy as I had some rather specific attributes I was looking for in a home. Yeah, we all say things like that but my house needed to be located next to a runway! Cheryl was always professional, thoughtful, and worked diligently to help me find and negotiate the purchase of the home. I will not hesitate to use her again in any real estate transaction in the future.  March 14, 2015.

Louis Taylor Evolution Fresh Retail Solutions Representative II at Starbucks.   Cheryl is one those people you look forward to working with again! She exceeded all expectations I had of a realtor. I found the home I loved on my second visit but to help me she showed me other houses to help me decide if it was the one. During the option period she worked nights and weekends to help coordinate inspectors and repair estimates. I will recommend Cheryl to all of my friends and colleagues. December 2, 2014.

Wes Marshall Independent Wine and Spirits Professional.  Until I met Cheryl, I was always under the assumption that real estate agents made some of the easiest money on earth. I was completely wrong. From the moment we first met her, she worked tenaciously, first to get our listing, then to sell it. She listened to our needs and helped us price our home accordingly. Given the price range for our home, we thought we'd be looking at a 6 month+ sales process. Instead, she put so much effort into the opening salvo that she had it sold within a couple of weeks of us signing the listing agreement. Given the complex marketing plan, which included films, brochures, advertisements and much else, she actually had the house sold before it was really fully on the market. Every time someone needed to see the house, be it for a showing, an inspector, appraiser, or surveyor, she was there to manage the process. She held our hand though the worrisome process between accepting the offer and closing. then, like a true professional, she took us out to lunch afterwards just to see if she could have done anything better. She couldn't have improved on a thing. I would recommend a family member to use Cheryl. I would send my best friend to her. And I recommend her to you. November 3, 2014.

Jake Thomas Powell Digital Marketing Analyst at CORT.  We used Cheryl as our realtor in our first home purchase. She was fantastic all the way from the first viewing to the closing. She was always available and checked in often to make sure we didn't miss anything. She was good with the negotiation and made sure we got a fair price. Overall, as a client, I was very impressed with her communication and level of service and will recommend her services to others. October 9, 2014.

Shawn Burton Receptionist/Administrative Assistant at Hill Country Property Management/Commercial Realty Services.  Ms. Albanese is very professional and always kept us informed and was very quick to respond to our questions, voicemails, etc. We would not hesitate to use her again if we ever need to buy or sell real estate in the future! June 11, 2014.

Hala Ballouz Expert in Energy, Renewable Generation and Utility Engineering, President & Owner Electric Power Engineers, Inc. Cheryl was really great as our real estate agent for a residential lakefront lot. She was very flexible and worked with us on out of the box ideas to find the lot we needed and make the deal we exactly wanted. She is efficient, and very easy to work with. I will definitely hire her again. June 7, 2014.

Denise Adams, MBA, CISSP, PMP Director, Information Security - Account Transitions at Xerox.  Cheryl is nothing short of terrific! We entered the Austin real estate market completely uninformed and unprepared for what we were getting ourselves into, and it was an eye opener. Cheryl guided us through the search and purchase processes and was exceptionally responsive at all times of the night and day to all of our questions no matter how small or silly. The Austin market is brutal right now, but despite the competition she landed us a great home on the first try! I would highly recommend Cheryl to anyone and if we ever buy another home we will use her again! April 16, 2014. 

John Kalogirou Information Management Architect at AT&T.  Cheryl was highly professional and responsive in our search for a new house which resulted in the ability to close on our new property in under 30 days! In addition, Cheryl was instrumental is providing trusted alternatives for the myriad or 3rd party contractors required through the process of buying a house. Highly recommended. February 27, 2014.

Marco M. Trevino Founder / Echo Earth Media.  Cheryl was an amazing realtor to work with becauseshe really listened to what I wanted and truly helped me find just that. Cheryl really cared about helping me and not just about making a sale. Cheryl impressed me with her knowledge and use of tools to find all the relevant information I needed to make an informed purchase. She also helped me during my negotiations that resulted in $ savings. I highly recommend using her and plan to do so on my next purchase. January 13, 2014.

Karen Kilgore Project Manager at Sense Corp.  Cheryl did an incredible job selling our home. We looked to her expertise to help us navigate the complexities of contract negotiations as well as simply managing the process. Cheryl's attention to detail, skill and approach allowed us the freedom of knowing our home sale was handled by a true professional. July 28, 2013.

Oskar Nisimblat Managing Attorney at Oskar Nisimblat, P.C.  Cheryl Albanese is an ethical, professional, caring, and committed agent. She is an excellent listener and communicator. I highly recommend Cheryl Albanese for your real estate needs.  November 8, 2012.
