I have been blessed to work with many fantastic clients in South Orange County over the years, here are what some of them recently had to say about our experience together.
Sherry has been our agent for over 11 years. During this time, she represented us in over 10 real estate transactions, involving both purchases and sales, while meeting our changing family needs and investment requirements.
We’ve learned we can rely on Sherry to attend to many details involved in completing a real estate transaction efficiently, on time and most importantly identifying for us the most favorable options and opportunities available.
Particularly noteworthy to us was her personal effort in navigating us through the “real estate bubble” and helping us avoid the many related problems. Her knowledge of the ever changing marketplace made our day.
Currently, we’re turning to Sherry for our next sale in a month from now. No need to shop around as we know our expectations will be met by Sherry
She has our unqualified personal recommendation to any prospective new client whether a buyer or a seller.

I have known Sherry for 10 years. She helped me buy my rental property 10 years ago and also helped me find renters over the years. She has always been extremely honest, hard working and helpful. When I decided to sell my rental property, I turned to her and she has made the job of selling my house really effortless. She has always offered to be at the house when I needed repair work for the house during escrow for my convenience. She has run house related errands for me. I really am fortunate to have found a professional like her who I feel comfortable enough to consider a friend.

When I recently found myself in the market for a home purchase, I recalled my then, roommate’s overall satisfaction with her home search and purchase process so I immediately contacted her realtor, Sherry Swift. Being a first time home buyer and overly cautious, I was extremely nervous and not very informed about how the whole thing worked. I informed Sherry of this early on and she immediately put me at ease and let me know that she would work closely with me on the process and “take care of me”. I’m thrilled to report that’s just what she did…and I wasn’t an easy customer! She took extreme time and detail to understand my likes and dislikes, building on information from each visit to craft our new possibilities, often times observing my visual responses and drawing out my thoughts. She set me up with her online tools to get immediate notice and input on new homes as they came on market. She was extremely available and often made time for quick visits to new houses, as they just came on the market. She provided much needed guidance and advice, without pressure, regarding each housing opportunity providing a balanced view of the pros and cons, both geographically and financially. All through the process, Sherry was very supportive and responsive. After we started escrow, she stayed in constant contact during the long escrow period to provide additional guidance and support, informing me of all the various pieces of the escrow process. When snags did arise, as they always do, she was there to “roll up her sleeves” and ensure that my interests were addressed, often times taking on responsibilities that traditionally would not have been that of a Realtor. Overall, I would strongly recommend Sherry to all home-buyers, new and old. Her positive attitude, responsive behavior, personal touch and support were all very gratefully received. She made this first time buyer’s very nervous situation very easy. Thank you Sherry!!
Recently we decided to make our American dream come true, to buy a home. We were first time buyers and were fairly new to the market. Initially, we browsed through magazines, went online and called a couple of agents. But to our disappointment, most did not return our calls. We were starting to feel frustrated, until we found a property Sherry advertised and we contacted her. It was a totally different experience for us. Sherry was very prompt to return our calls and listen to what we were looking for. She was with us helping to make our dream come true more than just trying to sell a home. We feel that without Sherry’s help we would never had realized our dream so quickly. Thanks to Sherry we are very happy in our home. Even better, now we are great friends! It will be our great pleasure to recommend Sherry to anybody, who really wants their dream of buying the “right” home to come true.

Sherry made every effort to make sure whatever changes I made in the type of home I wanted to look at, was made available. Over the several months we spent looking for the house I wanted, I changed my idea of what I wanted many, many times and without hesitation, Sherry would quickly locate and relay new houses for us to view, until I found the one I wanted, finally. She made the whole experience, one of enjoyment instead of dread.
I usually don’t write reviews but I wanted to take some time and write a few nice things about Sherry Swift. During our house hunt, she spent a lot of time with us showing us a number of different houses in a number of different areas. For every house we looked at, she gave us very honest and helpful feedback. Of the houses we did like, she fought tooth and nail for us on every offer we wrote. Only 3 offers in, we found the perfect house! Despite having an absent minded realtor on the other side and a difficult owner, she skillfully navigated the sale and successfully negotiated everything we wanted from the transaction. I definitely plan on passing her name along to any of my friends looking for a house!

There are many reasons why we are very thankful we had Sherry Swift for our realtor. First, she really got to know us and know what exactly we were looking for in a home. Second, when we would go look at a home we would have open, honest discussions with her about if the home met our needs. She never told us something that we wanted to hear just to try and make a sale. Third, she was persistent where she needed to be. We were not able to get in to preview a home which we really liked because the renters would not let us in. She was persistent with the real estate agent because she thought it would be a good match for us and eventually we were able to see it and it ended up being the home we purchased. The other real estate agent told us that it was Sherry’s persistence that really made a difference in us being the first to see the house. Fourth, she is very knowledgeable about the locations she specializes in. The appraisal came in on the house we were selling and it was way lower than the sales price. Instead of just telling us that the sales price needed to change, she went back and reviewed the appraisal in depth. Her knowledge of Aliso Viejo and the Victoria tract specifically made her realize that the appraiser had made some crucial mistakes. She had a long discussion with him and he went back and increased the appraised value by $18,000! Without Sherry’s help and knowledge I don’t think we would have been able to sell our home and purchase our dream home.
Jens & Heather
My husband and I have had the pleasure of working with Sherry Swift twice, first to buy our condo in Aliso Viejo and then again about 3 years later to purchase our home. We would not have trusted anyone else! Sherry is responsive, knowledgeable, energetic and treats you like you are her only client. She understood our timeline and our budget to get into a new home and stopped at nothing to help us. I would recommend Sherry Swift to anyone! Thank you Sherry!

During our quest to purchase a new home during the fall of 2011, our real estate agent Sherry Swift did an outstanding job of helping through this arduous process. A key element in our finding our “dream home” was Sherry’s availability through constant communication via the telephone. This is important because it shows her capacity for accessibility, as she demonstrated an ability to remain flexible, despite the limits on her time and demands on her schedule. Sherry is very professional in that, her studious research of real estate locations helped determine whether the homes we viewed fit our budget, met our needs, and reflected our desire for a safe and aesthetically appealing community. When we failed to find a home that met our needs, she went beyond her job requirements to ensure we persevered in our goal of finding our ideal home. After viewing houses advertised on line, which did not fit our criteria, Sherry knocked on doors in neighborhoods as a means to discover potential sellers; this led us to better locations and ultimately our current new residence. While finding your dream home merits great accolades for a successful real estate agent, it is equally important to help guide the buyer in selling their former residence. Again, Sherry shined in this endeavor. After two potential buyers reconsidered purchasing our townhouse, she remained a voice of reason when we lost hope of selling our home in order to move into our new house. Again, her professionalism manifested through her research of comparable homes in our neighborhood to determine a fair and equitable price for our townhouse. She also proved indefatigable in ensuring that we found the right buyer and negotiate a reasonable deal. During difficult times where we almost gave up, she remained a source of encouragement and stuck by us through her tireless effort to ensure we found our ideal house. It is in this spirit, we highly recommend Sherry Swift to help you find the home of your dreams!

We just wanted you to know that we think you did a fantastic job of helping us buy our home. We could not be more pleased. What impressed us the most is your professionalism, responsiveness, and ability to keep things on track. Since we moved from out of state, you were checking on homes that we were interested in prior to our actual move and you provided us with feedback on the homes. As new homes came on the market, you immediately made yourself available to us to show us the homes, with sometimes even showing them two to three times before we could make a decision. I appreciate the fact that you took It upon yourself to go back to check on homes that we were interested in prior to our move to see if they actually sold or whether they were taken off of the market for a short time. That is how we found our home! If anyone ever asks us for a recommendation on a realtor, we would recommend you without any hesitation.
Ed & Susan
We contacted Sherry Swift after we listed our home in Canton, NC for sale. She quickly began communicating with us to get an idea of what our needs would be in a new. For several months she sent us information about what was available on the market in our price range. This was tremendously helpful when we began our actual search after our house in Canton sold.The home we made an offer on was a “short sale”. This type of transaction required a mix of perseverance and patience. Sherry kept us informed every step of the way. We are certain that Sherry’s professionalism and expertise helped us to buy the home we wanted and in a much shorter time frame than expected.
Thank you, Sherry.

When I started my home search, I knew what I was looking for. After registering with the website I received a call from Sherry Swift. After learning my situation with the home I was selling (out of state), Sherry promised to keep in touch. She did better than that! I received a daily email with homes in my price range and square footage, and spoke to Sherry several times via phone in the weeks that followed. The weekend I came to look, Sherry had lined up 14 homes for us to see, as well as several builders to speak to. We had one day to “home shop”, and it was a huge success. Sherry listened to what I wanted, where I wanted to be, and what I could afford. The final home we looked at, just barely under construction was my “dream” home. Sherry had already spoken to the builder rep, and knew what I needed and wanted. Professional, positive, caring and attentive come to mind when I think of her. At the beginning of the search, I had a “Realtor.” At the end of the search, I gained a friend. I recommend Sherry to anyone looking for a home. She listens, and she knows what you’re looking for! I credit my “find” to Sherry!
“Sherry was diligent, professional, and willing to arrange property viewings on relatively short notice in our search for a house. She was very helpful throughout both the search and the completion of escrow. I highly recommend her.”
Dr. Steven Farmer
Working with Sherry Swift as first time buyers was a wonderful experience. After excellent recommendations, my husband and I were confident and comfortable with our decision to use Sherry as our realtor. Not only is Sherry extremely hardworking and successful; she is also warm, understanding and loyal. Both my husband and I wanted a realtor that would be all of these traits but most of all loyal. As important as it was for us to find a home, it was more important to be able to trust and rely on Sherry. Sherry exceeded all of our expectations and proved that she is a wonderful realtor who takes her job seriously. Sherry is a honest, caring and trustworthy realtor who truly cares for her clients. In the future, my husband and I will without a doubt return to Sherry.
