We found Sherry and Adam through friends, and they walked us through the process of buying a home, and when we were ready, of selling our previous home. We found a home that is perfect for us. Had it not been for their thorough knowledge and expertise, we would have been overwhelmed. The paperwork was immense, for buying and selling. Once we decided when to sell, they prepared a schedule, worked out the details, answered all our questions, and in less than a week our house was "SOLD". They are true professionals.
I remember we looked at one home twice before she said "You're not buying this home. This isn't a good neighborhood and I don't think you'd be comfortable here." Well, THANK YOOOU! That meant the world to me! Here's the problem with using Sherry and Adam: you'll never be able to use anyone again and be really satisfied. I had no idea how much Sherry did for me until I had to use another realtor out of the area and I called her to let her know what was happening. She kept asking "Isn't your realtor doing that? Why are you doing that? Your realtor should be doing that. Wait, what is she doing for you??" This team is honest, amazing, and truly looks out for your best interest. Wouldn't it be nice if everyone was like that? Call them.
He arranged everything and was helpful with the steps to be taken, all the while being patient and supportive. His knowledge and experience with construction and repair was helpful as well. He had contacts for all types of contractors, estimates, and recommendations for what could be done versus what should be done. Easy to work with and to contact (he would respond right away to texts, calls, or emails). We were going to stage the house, but he sold it before we needed to!
We would highly recommend them to anyone selling a home. They are both kind and thoughtful and got us a great price for our home!
He always listened to our concerns and gave great suggestions/ideas in getting the house ready to sell. He knew the area and was aware of what other local houses were selling for and the turnaround time in listing and selling. We had multiple offers within days of the open house. If you are considering selling your house I would highly recommend Adam as your Realtor!!!
She was the foreman in arranging, scheduling and supervising termite work, painting, staging and a variety of other projects getting the house ready to go on the market within a short time frame. Sherry sold our house in 9 days, for 5% over the asking price with the buyer taking care of required sewer lateral replacement. She did an excellent job!!
...Sherry and Adam gave us white glove, personal, and attentive support for every step of the way. Seriously, we felt like we were their only clients. We did exactly what they said and it paid off....in every way. Plus, honestly, they are just really nice people that walk the talk of their values and integrity. I've worked with many real estate agents over the years...these two were the best!
She's managed through the challenges of two transactions. In our latest, Sherry managed the cleanout, renovation, and repair of a family member's house while we were 3,000 miles distant. Sherry not only is a diligent project manager but also has excellent taste in home design and a nose for improvements that will sell. We couldn't be happier with Sherry's work on our behalf, and recommend her without reservation. Sherry is professional, competent, and caring -- always. She makes real estate fun.
Their availability and responsiveness were particularly impressive, as was their willingness to go the extra mile to ensure that nothing fell through the cracks and that our best interests were well represented. Because of the care and dedication they have for their clients, I highly recommend their services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Bay Area.
He did an excellent job helping my wife and I to balance the two very different processes of buying and selling. My favorite thing about working with Adam was how well he listened. When we told him what we wanted in a house, it felt like he understood our reasoning, not just a list of must-haves. He is extremely personable; walking into a potential house with an agent can be an uncomfortable thing, but Adam excelled at giving us space to explore and talk as well as connecting with us about our opinion of the house. I would absolutely recommend him, and I have done so to my in-laws who subsequently used (and were thrilled with) him."
Their patience and guidance was ideal for us as first time home buyers. We knew from the beginning that we were in safe hands. They are very patient and always take care of your likes and dislikes. They made the whole thing extremely easy; they were very helpful and informative. They are extremely knowledgeable and are very prompt about answering any questions you might have. If you are a first time home buyer I would recommend to look no further.
When it came time to sell the condo and buy a home, Adam helped us with both transactions. His knowledge and experience with the buying and selling process is excellent. He clearly explained everything and made sure we were informed of what needed to be done. He goes out or his way to make the process simple and easy.
My husband and I are the administrators of an estate and had to sell the house. It was not an easy task as there is a lot to undertake. With Sherry and Adam's guidance the house sold quickly, multiple offers, well above asking price and well above the current market value. Adam and Sherry are hard working, available when needed, and take their time explaining everything. They understand that selling a house is personnel. In our situation it was great having Adam's probate expertise. If you chose to work with Sherry and Adam you won't regret it. It was the best decision we made.
Our daughter was looking to buy her first home and became frustrated and sad with the lack of client attention and service she was experiencing. I mentioned Adam and Sherry, who I personally knew, and our daughter decided to give them a try. From the very beginning of their association, our daughter felt heard. Her housing needs were met in record time and we all benefited from the experience. They are the real deal and a privilege to work with.
We first got in touch with her because her Yelp recommendations were so strong...and with good reason! She and her partner were professional, knowledgeable, forthright, and incredibly awesome with our 6-week long search for a house in the middle of summer with two small kids. Sherry is also a bit of a night owl, so when we were up browsing Zillow way past our bedtime, she was available for immediate feedback if we wanted! In short, I highly recommend Sherry Hutchens to anyone looking to buy or sell a house - she is a consummate professional and I felt like we were in great hands the whole time.
From the beginning of the process up to the final moment when we handed over the keys to the new owner, you performed in stellar fashion, not only as our agent but also as our financial advisor, our home decorator, our legal lookout, our strategist, our marketing person, our tactical psychologist and at times, our spiritual cheerleader. Your advice and guidance in planning, preparing, staging and marketing the home was instrumental in getting us an offer that exceeded our asking price, not to mention receiving that offer within hours of putting the house on the market ! Your ability to deal with contractors and workers who were helping upgrade the house resulted in making sure each job was done right in order to stage and present the house in its best possible light. Your impressive experience and perceptive knowledge as a real estate agent proved exceptionally useful when we ran into roadblocks and problems that the other agent involved with the sale couldn't handle. Additionally, your creative thinking provided options for everyone involved in the sale to find ways to work through any unforeseen business or procedural bumps in the road. Your skill and ability provided us with wide and comprehensive service, yet you kept your eye on making sure the smallest details were never overlooked. In short, you were the key person who brought it all together and made it happen, proving that there is no substitute for talent, knowledge and experience. We are grateful for all of your help, and especially happy with the results of your dedication and hard work. You certainly have allowed us to move forward with our life, and we will always appreciate everything you did. We can say with great confidence that your future clients will be very lucky to have you as their agent !
I recommend this team to everyone! Super happy with the experience
Sherry's calm, soft spoken demeanor relaxed my family's nerves during this stressful time. The drive you see in Sherry is inspiring and refreshing.
Their teamwork is awesome. They are both very knowledgeable and diligent. They listen and explain clearly and patiently always putting client interests first as true professionals always do. It was indeed a pleasure to work with them in this challenging environment!
He is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of real estate and with his advice, attention to detail and guidance we felt confident and comfortable when it was time to make an offer to buy our home. When asked for his opinion he was objective and balanced when giving pros and cons about each home. He noticed things we never even thought to look for and gave us great ideas of how we could use various spaces. At the same time he always left us room to make our own decisions on each property. We are so happy with our new home and we are so grateful to Adam!
They have been absolutely wonderful throughout the entire experience, and made the entire process seamless. Sherry has been so incredibly kind and willing to explain every bit of the process to us first time homebuyers. She walked us though every step of the process, and made sure that we were comfortable before any decisions were made. They were always extremely easy to get ahold of, professional, helpful and very knowledgable. We were extremely lucky to have not one but two great realtors on our side!
He counseled us and helped us avoid pitfalls and we ended up buying our dream home while it was unlisted. What's more, the house was well outside of his usual territories but he made the long drive through traffic to support us every time he was needed. We would happily use Adam again for our real estate needs.
It was a particularly challenging transaction that required bank approvals and constant follow-up. Not only did Sherry call the bank daily to get the sale pushed through, she was so knowledgable in the real estate process and the requirements needed for a bank approved short sale. Sherry Hutchens is so attentive to her clients' needs that you almost think you are her only client! She kept me very informed and is the best realtor out there. I just wish I had hired her when I bought the condo in the first place! I can't praise her talents enough. I will never conduct another real estate transaction without her assistance. I have also recommended her to several friends who were very happy as well.
They put their clients first and consistently go above and beyond. Anybody would be lucky to have them as their agents. They truly found me the perfect home. I smile every time I walk through my new front door. If there were more stars to give, I would! I highly recommend Adam and Sherry for any of your real estate needs.
Sherry made our dream a reality by getting us into an amazing home and let me tell you it was not an easy path. The buyers of our home and their mortgage company made the process of selling our home brutal, but Sherry stood by us and consistently solved problems to make sure we would still get our dream home. For those who have sold and bought a home at the same time know how challenging this process can be. Sherry talked my husband and I through every step and many times acted not only as our agent but a counselor. We literally could not have done this without Sherry and for that we are eternally grateful!
He is honest, reliable, level-headed and provided us with seamless service. He also worked with the family when we were selling my 82 year dad's home. He handled the entire process with care and much respect for my dad's age. He made the whole home buying and purchasing as stress-free as it can be! Would highly recommend!
Ethical in all dealings, open and honest with buyers and sellers, and worked overtime to secure our dream house with creative representation and honest feedback. We recommend Sherry and Adam to all of our friends and family every time they are looking for an agent. The maximum is 5 stars but they’re worth more than that.
Both are very professional and knowledgeable in the real estate market in the East Bay. We enjoyed everything about our process of selling our existing home in Walnut Creek to looking for a new home and finally discovering it at the Trilogy at Rio Vista. Adam and Sherry are excellent at their jobs and fun to hang out with during the process. You can't go wrong with them...give them a call if you are thinking about selling and buying a new place. Good luck!
We wanted a home that had the right layout, location and the surrounding landscape and neighborhood we desired. Adam and Sherry delivered as promised. They never wasted our time visiting inventory that just showed up on the radar. This was important as my wife and I were very busy with our careers and had no time to waste. Adam and Sherry worked very hard to find the right property that met our requirements and then worked with their network to deliver the information we needed to make the right deal for both sides. If you are interested in buying a home in East Bay from Orinda to Dublin, I would recommend highly that you reach out to Adam and Sherry. They delivered as promised and that is rare with Realtors that we have dealt with in the past. I would definitely use them again!!!
They are both professionals who know the market well and will do everything in their power to make the stress of buying or selling disappear. Adam's construction background helps them provide sound advice when inspecting a property or readying one for sale. They have an extensive network so much so that we were able to buy a home before it went to market, and then sell our home while we were getting ready for sale!
From the very first minute I met Sherry there was not a question of doubt that she was who I was going to work with to sell my condo and purchase a home with my fiancé. Sherry was so detailed and informative about the process and assured me that she would do everything in her power to make the double sided transaction as smooth as possible. Selling my condo: Sherry took so much time to walk me through the timeline and explain why and how for each "to-do" item. Not only did she help me understand the process completely but she prepared me for each step. Sherry would come over to meet contractors or inspectors or any one that needed access to our house so that we could go to work and not have our schedules interrupted. Sherry did it all, walked my dog, brought me moving boxes, had cleaners come and clean my house for me and beautifully staged my home. She was able to sell my condo for over asking price after only 3 days on the market. Her advice, knowledge and full service treatment was over the top and exceeded every expectation I had! Buying our new home: She toured us through as many homes as we were up for without any hesitation. Sherry is so knowledgeable and her advice was so helpful to us. She noted things we probably would have never even though of. We finally found the house we wanted, there was 4 other offers, WE GOT THE HOUSE!!! Her knowledge and experience was proved in her ability to guide us through writing up an attractive offer and getting us the house of our dreams. Our transaction got extremely stressful and tricky because we were trying to time the sale and purchase just right in order to not end up without a home in between transactions. We were faced with so many obstacles that were out of our control and I can tell you that Sherry was our lifesaver! She will fight for her clients at all cost and she will have your best interest in mind at all times!!! I think I told Sherry about 15 times that she was doing things outside of her job description and she would humbly say "you are my clients and this is what all Realtors should do", I know from experience that not all Realtors will go above and beyond the way Sherry does! I will never call anyone else other than Sherry for all my future real estate needs!!! I can PROMISE you that you will not regret hiring Sherry to help you with any sale or purchase transaction - Sherry was phenomenal!!!
Sherry worked tirelessly to find us a home when the market was limited. She went door to door in the neighborhood we were interested in until a seller was found. I have referred Sherry to others and will use her again myself when and if the time comes. She's knowledgeable, professional, and knows her stuff. I highly recommend Sherry Hutchens.
Communicative, responsive, detailed and a plethora of knowledge and resources. My husband and I decided to sell our house, it had some issues and we had a tight time frame. Just a few days after we met with Sherry for the first time our house was photographed by her photographer and it looked amazing...thanks to her stager and quick update recommendations. This was the first time we had sold a house and it was a stressful time. She was a great help each step of the way always taking time to explain what was going on and our options. We ended up selling our house for a great price and on time! Our house was by no means expensive for the Bay, but felt like we were given absolutely the same service had our house been selling for millions. Sherry and her team were wonderful and we know that we would not have had the same success with a different Realtor. She really showed us what a value a great Realtor is.
I was given Sherry's name as a referral from a friend. My partner had recently taken a job in Napa, and we wanted to sell our home in Martinez, and make the move north. We instantly felt comfortable with Sherry. She is amazingly thorough, and made an always difficult process easy to understand. From our very first encounter, I could tell she was on our side, and would fight for us in her cheerful way. We sold our home quickly, and she was kind enough to volunteer to represent us in the Napa market as well. Driving to Napa to look at houses became a weekly routine. We thought we found a home we liked, but the owners were not willing to work with us on repairs so we backed out of the deal. Sherry stuck by us the whole time, and was unbelievable patient and kind. We continued our search, once again going through the process of finding a home 35 miles away. We finally found our new home with her expert help, and could not be happier. She has become much more than a realtor to us, and we count her among our friends. If I could give her 10 stars I would ! She is the best !
They were always professional, timely, and a great source of information about the areas we were looking to buy. Adam always had good insights into the quality of the homes we were looking at from a engineering and usage point of view. We really appreciated their insights into not only what was good about a home, but also shared insights about what might be issues as well. They didn't just want to sell a home and move on. They were always interested in finding the right home for us.
Reliable, responsive and extremely knowledgeable are but a few words to describe her. From the very beginning she took on the sale of my home full speed ahead. If you are looking for a Realtor to completely relieve you of all the stresses of preparing your home for the market then she is the one! Having sold many homes this experience has been the least stressful due to her extraordinary work. Once my home hit the market she sold it in 4 days! Needless to say I am thrilled with her work and highly recommend her!
As first time buyers and unfamiliar with the local market, it seemed like a daunting task. We received a referral from a trusted source to Sherry Hutchens and Adam Hamalian from the Dudum Real Estate Group. It ended up being the best recommendation we could have hoped for as Sherry and Adam were tremendous from start to close. From the beginning, we felt very comfortable working with Sherry and Adam. They listened to what we were looking for and our limitations and kept those parameters in mind when new properties came on the market. They were also honest and up-front at every stage of the process. For example, they told us that landing the right home in Lamorinda can be a challenging process but it would happen for us eventually, and both turned out to be true. Sherry and Adam were always responsive and hustled out to see new houses with us on short notice. During the walk-throughs, we trusted their insights regarding the strengths and weaknesses of the various houses. They also have a stable of excellent inspectors at their fingertips if ever professional consultation is needed. We eventually saw a house that was perfect for us in the Burton Valley neighborhood of Lafayette. Unfortunately we were not the only buyers who felt that way as the adorable ranch house with an open floor plan, vaulted ceiling living room, and large terraced back yard generated a lot of interest from others. We strategized with Sherry and Adam to put together the most competitive offer possible without overextending ourselves. To our great fortune, we ended up with the winning bid, after which Sherry and Adam remained intimately involved to ensure a smooth escrow. We were so lucky that we were pointed to Sherry and Adam. We just moved into our dream house and feel that their excellent professional service was critical for that to happen. They are also very friendly and a joy to work with. I would recommend the Hutchens and Hamalian team to any buyer or seller in the area!
We found that Sherry and Adam were amazing to work with. They were very responsive, organized, patient, professional, and had a wealth of information that really helped us feel comfortable as prospective first time home buyers. Adam's construction background really helped lend valuable perspective on potential modifications (things like upgrading HVAC, different cracks observed in houses, renovating, etc.). They were able to effectively guide us through an offer process. Overall, it was a really positive experience working with the two of them, and we wish them the best!
It doesn't event seem right to use agent, it's not enough. Years ago when I was scraping money together to buy my first condo Sherry spent weeks with me trudging through short sales, foreclosures, unresponsive banks and everything in between. Still she helped guide me through all the hazards of a chaotic market to help me find my home of the next 6+ years. Now all that time later she helped me find a buyer, wade through the hoops of selling trough a painless closing. What made Sherry so great to work with is her positive spirit, honesty, perseverance and deep experience and knowledge of the laws, tricks and best practices of a complicated industry in a volatile Bay Area. I can't say or recommend Sherry enough and would never look to anyone else in the area for real estate help and advice.
She immediately took charge, staging the inside and outside of my home; an excellent preparation to attract potential buyers. The property quickly attracted buyers and a sale was achieved. My experience with Sherry was 100% positive. She made a thorough and accurate assessment of what needed to be done. At all times, she was responsive to my concerns and provided much needed insight about the details of the sale. She has continued to be a trusted resource for advice on real estate decisions. I am pleased to recommend Sherry to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is hands down the best in the business in my opinion and if I ever need to move again she will be my first choice in real estate agents.”
These two are the ultimate dream team. They are so professional, caring, informed and proactive. I have thoroughly enjoyed every transaction they have assisted our family with and I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell!
We benefited from their experience and teamwork. When it was time to make an offer, their strategy to get the house we wanted for a reasonable price was impressive.
They're incredibly knowledgeable about that area and the market. Every house they showed us was in line with what we were looking for, but also served to help us learn more about our needs and wants. They were patient and realistic in setting out expectations, but also strongly supported and advocated for us during the offer and buying process. We are now in our dream home, with absolutely zero buyers remorse! We feel like Sherry and Adam have become dear family friends and we didn't even need to work with them long🥰 Absolutely recommend them, 10/10 to anyone who is looking to buy/sell in the area. We love you Sherry & Adam!!
She assisted my mother with the sale of her condo and myself in the purchase of a second home. She has set the bar VERY high for all other Real Estate agents. Her willingness to help, answer any and all questions, tenacity and professionalism are second to none! Her breadth of industry knowledge provided us assurance throughout each transaction. We're so grateful for all that Sherry has done and will definitely use her services again!
They are very thorough, detailed, and accurate in their predictions. I had a very good experience with the sale of my family’s home, that’s been with us for 75 years. Their recommendations brought us offers way over the asking price. Needless to say, I would use them again and recommend them to anyone wanting a smooth home sale.
Great personality! Very knowledgable, very patient, very polite, and kept us informed of everything we needed to know. We feel she went above and beyond a typical agent. We looked at several houses. Sherry was always early and knew everything about the property. We valued her opinions and she helped us find & purchase a great home for our family.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about my experience with her. Selling my first home was an emotional endeavor, but Sherry made sure that all my needs were met and was there every step of the way to help me with anything I needed. She truly treats her clients like they are family. I will not only use her services in the future, but I would recommend her to anyone!
They helped us with the difficult task of getting my Dad’s house ready to put on the market. They gave us great advice- having all of the inspections done prior to putting it on the market (since it was a trust sale) and on things that needed to be taken care of. We definitely would use them again and highly recommend them to anyone.
They are knowledgeable of all the neighborhoods in the Lamorinda area, and have excellent data on market statistics to inform the home buying process. They made our close of escrow an easy and efficient process. I’d highly recommend them to anyone looking for an agent in the East Bay, specifically in the Lamorinda area. Thanks, Adam and Sherry!
We had no idea of how the home-buying process works and they both made our nervous stress turn into excitement and walked us through the entire process from start to finish. Sherry was able to take care of all the details and answers questions you don't even know to ask. Her experience was greatly appreciated!
Initially, the task seemed like an impossible mountain to climb. Then Sherry and Adam stepped in to guide us seamlessly through the entire process. Whether it was providing their trustworthy resources to disperse the contents of the house, to work on making appropriate updates for a contemporary look, to readying the landscaping and staging the house for the perfect showing - we could not have done it without them. They gave us such peace of mind. It was painless and easy in their experienced hands. We were so happy with the entire process and highly recommend the Hutchens / Hamalian Team.
She worked tirelessly with us to find the perfect "forever" home for our family. She is incredibly professional as well as a kind and lovely person. She managed the sale of our two homes and the purchase of "the one" in a very tight timeline and did it effortlessly and smashingly! She is amazing! I highly recommend Sherry as the best Realtor in the Bay Area. She stays on top of the profession by continually expanding her skills and knowledge, and provides the best service she can to her clients. We would use Sherry in a heartbeat if we ever need to do any real estate transactions in the future (which we won't because she found us a house we love so much we'll never leave it!)
She has integrity, market knowledge and long history in this area that makes her skills invaluable to a seller or buyer. We were looking to sell our home and upgrade, she actually advised against it and instead gave us some really good tips for our home to improve its value. We are grateful as it saved us tons of money in the long run and our home is now even better than it was. She is truly a gem and wonderful to work with. You need to at least interview her as part of your process, otherwise you are the one losing out.
He was hands on every step of the way, with suggestions on how to make our home more sellable, to staging it so beautifully. His assistants from office to photographers, to staging were quality. He knows the market well, especially the Bay Area, and knew right when it, and we were ready! We never made it to open house before multiple offers came in, our condo sold, over asking, within a few days of listing. More than all of this... Adam is a man of high integrity, the most honest and nicest man we have ever worked with. Don't hesitate to call him. You will be so happy you did!
He was knowledgeable and gave my parents options at every opportunity. He was easy to contact and went the extra mile to accommodate the needs that my parents had for the sale of the house.
We wound up purchasing two investment properties with them and couldn't be happier. The transactions were completed efficiently and quickly. We would highly recommend this fantastic "realtor duo" to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a property for either themselves or as investment property. We personally were kept very well informed of each step in the process and they listened to all of our requirements to help us find just the right properties. We will be using them again in the future if necessary without any reservations and will be recommending them to all of our family and friends. We are extremely pleased and could not have asked for better relators. Happy home buying and/or selling to everyone!!!
Having experienced, knowledgeable agents makes all the difference in the home buying/selling process. Their guidance resulted in a successful sale for us.
She is calm, knowledgeable, and extremely comfortable to work with. Sherry actually listened to all of our needs, and got us immediate results. We went on vacation, and when we returned, she had a wonderful list of homes for us to look at. We chose a home to bid on that day. Sherry suggested an offer, we sent it in same day, and our offer was accepted the next day! It was the best experience for first time home buyers! She stayed with us through the entire process, and we are so grateful for all of her help and hard work.
A life long friend of ours told us about his experience with Adam Hamalian. Based on my friends' very positive review of Adam, we gave Adam a call. Looking back on the process of selling our home, Adam guided us through the process very smoothly. We followed through with EVERY suggestion on how to prepare our home for an open house and a successful sale. Our home sold in 4 days, after a bidding war. If you want to sell your home quickly, you should hire Adam Hamalian and Sherry Hutchens for a successful quick sale.
Despite the pandemic, we were able to find the home that is a perfect fit for us and felt very informed throughout the whole process. Their attention to detail and intentional personal connection left us as very happy home buyers. Thank you Adam and Sherry!"
The whole long process was stress-free because he expertly took care of all the details. It was heartening to hear him say, "Don't worry; I'll take care of it." Having lived in our house for 40 years, we faced a formidable task clearing it out. What a relief it was when he told us to take what we wanted and he would take care of the rest. It took us a long time to sort out what we wanted and he was very patient waiting for us to complete the job. Then he took charge of getting the house completely cleared out and hiring contractors to make repairs and improvements to prepare the house for sale. When problems arose, we could depend on him to efficiently get the problem solved. He gave us good advice as to which repairs/updates were necessary and which were not. Several times when papers needed to be signed, he drove to our place from his office in Orinda so that we would not have to travel there. Even when we had to go to the title company to sign final papers, he showed up although he was not required to do so, in case there were questions that we could not answer. This shows what a caring and thoughtful person he is, always looking to our welfare. We had complete trust in him when we had to sign documents which were complicated and full of legalese, knowing that he knew that it was safe to do so. Adam was knowledgeable about the market and got us a good price.
True professionalism and knowledge which made the process smoother than anticipated. Knowledgeable about the area beyond compare and extraordinary. They are truly committed to everything they do.
They provided complete support every step of the way, and made me feel like I had a solid team on my side. Both Sherry and Adam were quick to respond to any questions that came up with very knowledgeable and helpful answers. I'm very glad I worked with them and would absolutely recommend this team to anyone else in the area!
I was beginning to think it would never happen. I have been saving for a down payment and thought I needed that all set before I could start the process. I was happy and relieved to learn that Sherry will work with you before you are ready to buy a home. She will help you GET ready, which I really appreciated. I ended up purchasing sooner than I expected and she was there the whole way, answering questions, explaining terms and helping with inspections. Her team is great to work with too. Once the ball got rolling, they took care of all the details. They were all very responsive, efficient and nice!
All issues were dealt with smoothly, and I would highly recommend.
Her customer service, knowledge of the industry, and accessibility is unreal. I cannot recommend any realtor in the Bay Area more highly than Sherry. We just closed on a house at the end of May are IN LOVE. We looked in three different areas of the Bay Area to figure out where our price range and needs would meet, so I can confidently say how incredible she is as a relator. Once we decided on the Pleasant Hill Area, the market suddenly halted and we had very little inventory, which caused bidding wars and prices to jump. Sherry patiently walked along side us for almost 9 months, included a failed escrow (on the sellers part) until we found our forever home. She was extremely communicative, letting us know her availability and would go out of her way to make herself available based on our schedule to tour homes. Never once did we feel like a burden. Late night phone calls, combing through houses online, talking through where to put out offer in. She was there for us through the entire buying process. I thought she was exception then, but she continued to go above and beyond once your in escrow navigating the paperwork, connecting you with people, it was endless. Even after we closed, she helped us navigate a couple situations to make sure we were 100% happy with our house. Sherry is exceptional! I promise you won't regret having her as your agent. I know for us, working closely together for so long she has become a friend... in fact, I told her I am now having withdrawals not speaking with her.
She helped us make our move from the peninsula to Danville and gave us great insights on the various neighborhoods so we selected the right part of town. She was a fantastic agent for our needs throughout the purchase process, getting a great deal of details out of the sellers agent and the sellers themselves, helped us select great services to help us with the move and getting everything set up in the new home and continues to help us months afterwards. She is great to work with and so responsive. She's a true expert in her field and as such helped us takes care of a lot of steps and details that we didn't know were needed, making our purchase as fast and painless as possible. :)
When my mom suddenly passed, the process of preparing her house to bring to market was daunting. Adam was great. He arranged the needed appraisal and was helpful with the steps to be taken, all the while being patient and supportive. His knowledge and experience with construction and repair was helpful as well. He had contacts for all types of contractors, estimates, and recommendations for what could be done versus what should be done. Easy to work with and to contact.
It was an act of God that at our first open house in the home searching process, we met Adam who was representing the seller. We didn't win that bidding war, but we went on for the next 9 months to see many open houses together and made approximately 8 bids until we finally got our "dream house." They were extremely patient with us and when we got to all of the paperwork and negotiations, they walked us through everything thoroughly. As it is our first home, we really knew nothing. I have deep trust and confidence in them both. I have never regretted using them and I am thrilled with our new house. I would absolutely recommend and refer anyone to Adam & Sherry. I will never use anyone else (if we ever move again). I now consider them both friends. They also made it easy for us while having two very small children by making themselves available late to talk after the kids were asleep, making open house appointments around nap time, and even coming to our condo once to do paperwork while the kids napped. My toddler still asks about Adam even though we moved into our new house a month ago. They are just the sweetest people but they will also be firm when they need to be which is in your favor.
As first-time homebuyers, she took the time to address all our questions and concerns, and walked us through each step of the process. Sherry is a true expert in her field - she pointed out potential issues that we would have otherwise overlooked, helped us see the potential in homes we were interested in, and encouraged us to stick to our guns in times of frustration or impatience. We really appreciated that she got to know us as a couple, to truly understand our taste and what we were looking for in a home. As soon as our offer was accepted, she worked tirelessly behind the scenes to coordinate with our lender, schedule inspections, and liaise with the seller. Throughout the entire process, Sherry went above and beyond to ensure that we were comfortable and well-informed, and to mitigate any anxiety. Thank you, Sherry!
Not everyone gets that experience. Adam sincerely took the time to walk us through step by step on the process. He was committed, very responsive and did everything we asked him to do. We were very picky since we wanted a home that we were excited about and Adam was very patient. Even after the sale, he still reaches out and makes sure everything is going good. I can keep going on and on about the surprise gifts once we received keys to our new home, to the coordination with a contractor to do last minute repairs to our home before we moved in and so on. He is truly amazing and I would recommend him to anyone!
They were great from start to finish and made buying a home very easy. Sherry took notes regarding our preferred areas of purchase and our needs in a single family home; while Adam made sure the property itself would meet our standards as well as those of FHA. Their knowledge in real estate & professionalism was shown since the day we met all the way until closing. Marco and I are now in our new home and are very happy with the purchase and most importantly the neighborhood where we will be able to start our family. We hope to one day purchase again and get this same experience.
She is simply THE BEST: knowledgeable, professional, and patient, with great people skills . . . an absolute delight to know. Her advice was right on at every step of the way, her responses always timely, and her manner unfailingly calm and reassuring. Thank you for all you did, Sherry, to help us make a smooth transition. We are so grateful!
What a great move that was, in a little over a week Sherry got the house all spruced up, staged and ready to go one the market. The house sold in less than a week with multiple offers. Sherry is a true professional - she knows her business, is dedicated, honest, hard working, knows how to sale houses! Additionally, she is a lovely person and a pleasure to work with. Thank you Sherry for the fantastic job!
I had moved out of state and they looked after everything for me. Closing date was on time and I thank them. I highly recommend both of them to be your agents.
They constantly kept in touch, and between them had expertise in every area that I needed. They were enthusiastic about representing my interests, and helping me define what I really wanted in a home. I would recommend them to anyone looking for an amazing experience buying real estate.
Sherry was incredibly patient with my husband and I as we were nervous first time homebuyers. Sherry was with us every step of the way and was very helpful at pointing out important aspects of houses that we did not think to consider. Sherry is incredibly knowledgeable about real estate and gave us a lot of helpful insight into the house hunting/buying process. Not only is she good at her job but she is also easy to talk to, always accessible, and just the sweetest! Sherry was always checking in with us throughout the whole process and has kept in touch even after we closed. When we found our house we knew it would move quickly, and Sherry knew how to put together the most appealing offer to ensure the sellers selected us (and it worked!). Sherry is more than just our real estate agent, she is a good friend and we cannot recommend her enough to anyone looking to buy a house! Sherry is the best!
He always listened to our concerns and gave great suggestions/ideas in getting the house ready to sell. He knew the area and was aware of what other local houses were selling for and the turnaround time in listing and selling. We had multiple offers within days of the open house. If you are considering selling your house I would highly recommend Adam as your Realtor!!!
She made the process of buying a first home not just easy, but fun!! She was with us every single step of the way, from showing us over 60 houses, phone calls anytime, very clear on every process and deadlines, and just an all around joy to be with. Her knowledge of the housing market and multitude of policies never ceased to amaze us. We will never use anyone but sherry and would recommend her with the highest possible regard.
It won't be the last! I value responsiveness, focus & attention to detail. They delivered on both scores. Communication and response to questions was excellent. Their advice was focused and clear. Answers to questions were complete and thoughtful. In an era where service to clients seems to have bifurcated: Firms are either great at it (Zappos) or horrible (think your cell phone company), Adam & Sherry are in the former category...they're great. They anticipated our needs and provided resources to solve any problems. Among my goals in finding the appropriate investment was also doing so on a very quick timetable. Sherry & Adam made that possible, moving this transaction from idea to closing in under a month! Their stable of affiliated resources were all equally professional, responsive, and pleasant. Perhaps the best thing I can say about Adam & Sherry is that they earned my trust!
Adam listens well and is proactive in seeking his client's best interests. Few agents put the kind of care, concern and service into their work as Adam exemplified in our recent home purchase. If you are looking for an agent that works hard, listens well, and dedicates himself to putting your best interests first, then I highly recommend Adam Hamalian.
What do you get when you put together two joyful personalities, over 20 years of Real Estate experience and toss in a construction management degree? You get your perfect house apparently! These two were such a pleasure to work with and a wealth of knowledge so important for first time homebuyers like ourselves. They spent valuable time with us and walked us through every step of the way. We never felt rushed, ignored or dumb. After it was all said and done, we almost felt like it was too easy. We had heard tales of homebuyer nightmares but this process was so smooth and comfortable we felt very little stress even while raising our newborn son. Honestly we feel very fortunate to have had such a skilled, professional team helping us navigate this crazy Bay Area market. If you want to be a part of a winning team, feel represented, cared for and understood, and be well prepared when the perfect home finds you - Then look no further than Sherry and Adam. They’re the real deal!
They recently helped us rent a new condo and found us, wonderful tenants. I appreciated their attention to detail! Sherry even made sure that all of the new appliance warranty information was organized in a binder for future reference. Adam followed through with the builder holding them accountable to complete the outstanding minor tasks in the building. Looking to buy, sell or rent a home, do contact Sherry and Adam first!
He really listened to what my needs were and worked hard to find a home to meet those needs. He was patient and was always quick to respond to my questions. Adam made my house buying experience easy. I had a great experience.
Sherry was so very kind, compassionate and sensitive to my needs. She handled the transaction in a professional and yet friendly manner. She even spent an entire day helping to pack and move items from the home. I think she went over and above the call of duty to make everything run smoothly. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an agent in this area. In my opinion, she is the best!
He did an outstanding job. He was professional and knowledgeable. Great experience - we would highly recommend him."
It was a pleasure to work with Sherry. Her steady hand and broad experience in the area certainly worked in our favor. She was right there from the beginning keeping us on a tight schedule to get the home ready in time for critical open house. She knows the value of good staging and having the property in top shape inside and out. Because of her strong guidance we received an offer above asking before a week on the market. She was there through all stages of closing and even the signing at Title Company. Also important, the whole time the listing was in force and if I had a question, I would call Sherry and she always picks up her own phone to solve problems and answer questions on the spot. Highest ratings and a definite recommendation for Sherry Hutchens at Dudum Real Estate Group.
The number of documents and the length of these documents was more than I could read and understand. It was great to be able to depend on Adam to say it was okay to sign them. He made it a comfortable process.
