She loves to come up with dost effective design to sell solutions and creative marketing ideas to help her clients get top dollar for their home.  She utilizes those same skills with buyers by showing them the potential in fixxer homes.

Thank you for all you behind the scenes efforts. I am sure I was spared a lot of grief.

Before deciding to do a short sale she laid out around 10 different options that were available to me. She didn’t tell me which option to choose, but just instructed me on the pros and cons of each option. I liked that she didn’t tell me what to do; instead she gave me the facts and answered my questions in a very professional manner. I decided that short selling the home was my best option. One thing I liked about working with Cheryl was that she updated me frequently about how the whole short sell process was proceeding. I enjoyed working with Cheryl and would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She’s very professional and responds very quickly to questions, comments and concerns. I am looking forward to working with Cheryl again.

Cheryl did a great job in representing us as sellers. I feel that she kept us up-to-date and informed at all crucial times. I also feel that using multiple types of advertizing media and developing a “demand” for the house by scheduling appointments a week prior to showings really helped sell the house quickly. Thanks Cheryl!

Just to say that Cheryl Bray is an excellent realtor, she is extremely professional always looking at the details and keeping everyone well informed. She has helped me buy, sell and buy a property. Last deal was selling my home as a short sale, Cheryl find a new buyer, within a week, after the original buyers walked away not willing to keep on waiting for the bank short sale approval. Because of her, the bank had all the paper work on time and she took care of all the details that are related to short sales. I walked away from my house without having to pay back any money to the bank including Property Taxes, After closing, Cheryl recommended a credit agency that is helping me with my credit rating. I enjoy working with Cheryl: I highly recommend her for all real estate deals…

Cheryl helped me purchase my first home in February. She was amazing. When literally everything that could go wrong did go wrong, she patiently and professionally worked through all of the problems and got me where I needed to go. She is personable and easy to work with, which is a wonderful thing since we spent many hours together looking at houses! I highly recommend her and if I ever buy another house I wouldn’t even consider using anyone but her for my real estate needs.

We’ve had nothing but wonderful, highly professional and extremely caring service from Cheryl. She helped us find our perfect starter home in La Jolla over 10 years ago – then helped us sell that – and then found us our current perfect family home in the same neighborhood. We can’t say enough good things about Cheryl and the high quality of real estate experience/service she has – simply the best!

Cheryl helped us buy our home in north county when we were moving from Seattle. The logistics of the long-distance move were daunting, but Cheryl made it so much easier…and most importantly, very successful. Her best attribute is that Cheryl is a good listener – she listened to our wish lists and opinions and distilled them to narrow our search. She was a fount of information about the neighborhoods and schools, info that we needed since we knew nothing prior to our house hunting. And she was rock-solid during negotiations. She knew when to push and when to be patient. We recommend Cheryl unequivocally.

Cheryl represented us when we were looking to move from North Park, San Diego, to North County. We have three small children and had VERY specific needs with regards to what we were looking for in a neighborhood and house. Cheryl was able to narrow our search to the areas that met our requirements and - although she had other clients and deals going on - she NEVER made us feel that we were one of the many people she was working with. Excellent follow-up and communication. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Cheryl has helped us buy two houses and sell one. She is very knowledgeable, organized and motivated. From making offers to setting sales prices, she gives you the pros and cons so you can make informed decisions. She also helped us rent out the home we finally sold with her help. She kept track of all the little steps and was able to anticipate problems before they slowed down the sale.


She always gives very honest thorough answer to every question. She goes above and beyond in making sure you're happy with all of your decisions about a home. The most important thing that I cannot stress more is that she is very honest and experienced!
