Leased home in 2008 in Ladera Ranch, CA.

I’ve been working with Cheryl since 2008. She had an open house that I visited with my agent (at the time) and throughout our negotiations, Cheryl’s professionalism, market knowledgeable, contract negotiations and overall representation was impeccable. Through that experience, I learned what a “real” Real Estate Agent is. I’ve been with her ever since and have recommended her to my family and friends!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $500K in Mission Viejo, CA.

Cheryl is fantastic. She has an intimate knowledge of the market and always gave great insights. She has an extensive network that really helped in multiple situations. Extremely responsive, attention to detail, and just overall very friendly and great to work with.

Cheryl helped me search for a home that would suit both my picky needs and price range and sell my current home. She was simply awesome. She was so dedicated to making sure I find the right house that would meet my needs. She did whatever she could to make sure I could close on time as I needed to downsize to my new home before putting my current home on the market.

She is always on time and fast on getting back to you any time you have a question. Also she would not waste your time by recommending you houses that you would not be interested in. Once she figures out what you are looking for you can be certain that she will find the house. She found my house in less than a month and closed in a month

She was always very patient and accommodating. Not once did I feel like I wasn’t her highest priority. We viewed dozens of homes during this period and I never felt pressured at all.

When I finally found the perfect home she worked very fast to make sure I would land it at the price I wanted. She handled negotiating the entire deal very well and helped me coordinate all the other aspects of appraisals, inspections, and other services.

When we encountered some bumps in the road she had no problem maneuvering around the situations to get me the house I wanted. She never appeared flustered or unable to cope with the difficult situations that arose.

As a home owner for 16 years, I was wary and inexperienced about most of the process to sell my home, but Cheryl was very honest and knowledgeable. Communication was easy with her through emails, text messages, and phone calls.

Cheryl guided me through the process to put my house on the market after moving into my new downsized home. She helped me make the difficult decision to take it off the market when market conditions changed and when to place it back on the market and it sold in less than 2 weeks and closed in a month.

I couldn’t have asked for anyone better. I would love to work with her again in the future


Caroline Taylor

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $3.375M in Coto de caza.

We hired Cheryl Lynch to sell our home as friends had referred her to us. We are so happy they did! From the beginning, she met us with a marketing plan and she was very confident about being able to sell our home. She wanted to know all the ins and outs of the house, from what made it special to us, to what other people really liked about the house. She learned everything about our home. Cheryl was present for each showing as she now “knew” the house and could point out all the features to potential buyers that their realtor would never know. We ended up with a more difficult buyer but Cheryl remained calm and did everything she could to take as much stress and pressure off of us as possible!

From start to close was less than 4 months. We were extremely happy with Cheryl! Her professionalism and wonderful personality shine through everything she does! We would definitely use Cheryl again and would refer her to anyone we knew that are looking to buy or sell!


Paulette Szayer

Bought a home in 2014 in Mission Viejo, CA 92692.

I met Cheryl at a church function nine years ago and have known her ever since as a friend and through her business. She impressed me right away as one who means business and she has direction and knows where she is going in life. There was no question in my mind when I needed someone to help me find a place to live that she wouldn’t leave me stranded. I was correct in my impression for I am very happy with the condo, area, and I was every comfortable with how she handled explaining to me everything about all the paper work and how things are done in the Real state business. I am very proud of my friend, Cheryl Lynch


Luke & Leilani Beaver

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Mission Viejo, CA..

We are so happy we used Cheryl to sell our last home and to buy our next home. When we first met with Cheryl, we were exploring all of our options and were still debating between selling or renting out our home. She walked us through what we needed to consider if we wanted to rent out our property and gave us an accurate picture of whether or not it would be cost effective to do so. With her guidance, we decided to sell.

After making the decision to sell, she gave us guidance on what we needed to do to get our place ready to go on the market and helped us find a manageable timeline so we could get our home on the market. Cheryl checked in and worked with us through this process, but was never pushy and impatient about getting our place on the market. She was also very knowledgable about the market and comparable properties so she made sure that we had realistic expectations on sale price.

Once we put our home up for sale, she did a great job of keeping us updated on prospective buyers and following up with agents that viewed our home. Within a week we had an offer on property and Cheryl did a great job of walking us through the escrow process as first time sellers. She worked with the buyer’s realtor, lender, home inspectors and our HOA to make sure there were no issues or, if there were issues, she went above and beyond to resolve them.

In addition to going above and beyond to sell our last home, she and her team helped us find a wonderful new home for our family of 5. She listened to what we wanted in a new home and combed all of the listings to find what we wanted within our budget. Cheryl also made sure that escrow on our new home went smoothly.

Cheryl and her team found our home with the big backyard that we wanted so our girls had somewhere to play. We can’t thank them enough for everything they did to make that happen.

We are so glad our friends referred us to Cheryl. Selling and Purchasing a home is an overwhelming experience. Having someone there that will take the time to walk you through all of the steps and inform you about the process is important. Cheryl helped us make those informed decisions and haven’t second guessed them yet.


Todd Souza + Kevin Kirby

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Las Flores, CA.

We were selling a rental property that was several hours away from our current home. Cheryl made the selling process easy, and most everything was taken care of by phone and internet–no need to drive back and forth which would have taken hours on the road. We got a great price for the property, and Cheryl negotiated some tricky terms and escrow qualifications that had to fit into our timeline. We highly recommend Cheryl, and trust her to handle all of the details when selling one of our properties.


Courtney & Ray Hyles

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $675K in Mission Viejo, CA.

We used Cheryl because of her reviews alone and they did not disappoint! She knows more of what you want than you do and that is not easy for me to say since I am the pickiest person I know. Cheryl is professional, personable, knowledgeable, a tiger and more than anything has turned into a friend. My husband and I were first time buyers and new to the whole process. She guided us every step of the way and was 100% available to us. We wouldn’t be living in a BEAUTIFUL home such as this if it weren’t for Cheryl’s superb skills. She is EVERYTHING and MORE that you could ever want in a realtor.


Vince Argy + Mary Mooney

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $1.1M in Huntington Beach, CA.

Cheryl represented us in the purchase of our house in Huntington Beach in the summer of 2012. We have worked with several agents in the past and Cheryl was by far the most professional and knowledgeable. From negotiations to inspections and walk thrus, she was there to answer all of our questions and provide advice and recommendations. We would definitely recommend Cheryl and use her in the future!


Mike + Victoria Cupic

Bought a home in 2014 in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA 92688.

Cheryl Lynch was certainly a pleasure to work with. Her skills and understanding of the local real estate market is a big help to any buyer in today’s market. Cheryl was with us from start to finish which obviously simplified the process and made every professional courtesy towards our happiness as our agent. I would recommend Cheryl to the first time buyer or to the seasoned “pro.” I look forward to our next purchase with Cheryl and her team. Thank you Cheryl!


Jay + Joni Mills

Helped me rent a Single Family home in Mission Viejo, CA

Cheryl Lynch recently negotiated a lease for my family residence and I found her to be EVERYTHING a seasoned professional real estate agent should be. I work in the real estate industry and know literally hundreds of realtors. I choose Cheryl for her professionalism and her work ethic! She was on top of our needs from beginning to end and always had our best interests in mind as we negotiated with our current landlords. More importantly, she was patient as we located the perfect property showing us as many homes as we asked to see until we found the right one. Her rapport with the other listing agents made negotiating so much easier and she helped us put together an offer package that was concise and had the best possibility for being accepted. We were able to secure our new home in a very short period of time in a VERY competitive marketplace.
I would whole heartedly recommend Cheryl Lynch and the Lynch Group to anyone looking to Buy, Sell or Lease real estate in Southern California.

Bought a home in 2010 in Canyon, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA 92688.

Cheryl is just amazing!! She has a infectious personality and really cares about getting you exactly what you want. She helped me find our home and when making changes she likes to see how it turns out. If you are looking for a professional realtor with excellent follow through call Cheryl!


Doug Lovell

Sold a home in 2012 in North Tustin, CA 92705.

When faced with selling my home due to my divorce, I wanted a realtor that had prior experience dealing with divorce sales. I checked Cheryl credentials and she was a certified divorce specialist. Divorce is a life changing event and the sale of the community property can be a messy situation. Cheryl got the job done and sold the home. Cheryl is very professional and I highly recommend her.


Robin Huggins

Sold a home in 2013 in Trabuco Canyon CA 92679

Cheryl Lynch is extremely good at moving property. She is a consummate professional. Her appearance and demeanor are always impeccable. She was very tactful about giving any “hard truths” and, it turns out, she was always right. Best of all, her ethics are sound and unswayable. By the time my house was sold, I felt like we had a relationship that would endure. There is one thing I think that Cheryl could improve on-her response time on communications needs improvement. I don’t know if she was overly busy, but it might help for her to return calls sooner out of respect for the angst that sellers and buyers tend to feel. But she got the job done so I can’t complain too much! By the third week on market our house was sold for the full asking price with very few buyer requests. She’s really knowledgable with the paperwork and phrasing of offers/counters as well.


Mike + Amy Junge

Bought a home in 2013 in Ladera Ranch, CA 92694.

Cheryl is wonderful. Very professional, knowledgable, and easy going. We especially liked that she is honest and not pushy in any way. We will definitely use her again for any real estate needs.


David Singer

Showed home in 2013 in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA 92688.

Cheryl is very knowledgeable about investment properties in Orange County. As a real estate investor herself, she knows the investment process and listened and mapped properties to my investment goals. As a first time investor, she coached me on key items I needed to know to make a smart real estate decision and evaluated every property with me. I would recommend her to any one that is thinking of investing – she knows her stuff!


Ettore + Andrea Zavarella

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1000K in Coto De Caza, CA.

Detailed, persistent and professional is what Cheryl displayed as our Real Estate broker in our purchase of our new home. She understood what we were looking for and found a wonderful home for our family. Thank You!!!


Gail Ann Lynch

Helped me rent a home in Laguna Hills, CA 92653.

We had a really tough rental situation and Cheryl was the best, she helped us find the exact home we needed for our large extended family and she was kind and understanding through the whole process. Her knowledge of Orange County is unbelievable. She is the ultimate professional but also very friendly and tenacious. She is a breath of fresh air in a process that no one truly enjoys. I recommend her to everyone I meet who doing any kind of real estate transaction, I would say she is an expert on both sides of the transaction.


Sherry Coody

Helped me rent a home in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA 92688.

After going through a divorce and sadly having to short sell my dream home, I was left feeling defeated and scared about being able to qualify alone to rent something for myself and my 3 kids and stay in the area for schools. Cheryl and her wonderful leasing assistant, Patti helped me do just that! I only wish I would have used her for my home sale. My realtor (Coto’s #1) didn’t try to help me move on, just focused on getting someone into my home. Cheryl is on top of her game and very helpful and personable. I have, and will continue to refer her to everyone I know!


Alyce Ceballos

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $500K in San Juan Capistrano, CA.

Cheryl is an excellent agent; we spent several months trying to buy a short sale at my price. She had no problem making as many offers as I requested. I finally bought a house in San Juan Capistrano. Cheryl did an great job of working with a listing realtor that was being less than helpful, Cheryl took on the termite control people to meet my requirements. Hope you get the jest of this statement that I am very happy with Cheryl. If you have questions or need to talk about options to make the sale or improve your property she is highly recommended. All this to the point that I am using her on another project now.


Robert Lynch

Sold a home in 2010 in Coto de Caza, CA 92679

Cheryl Lynch has handled multiple transactions for our family. Sale of a multi-million dollar home to leasing a townhouse. Cheryl is very thorough in her processes and follow up, she is a good communicator and very knowledgable of the market. She is an extremely hard worker and always available for her clients.


Bernard + Rose

Bought a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $250K in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA.

When we met Cheryl Lynch, she came across not only very friendly but knowledgeable and eager to share that knowledge. We asked all sorts of questions and she unhesitatingly answered them and more. She showed us hand-picked properties that were approximately within our price range. As an investor herself, she provided us with guidance, references and great tenants. Question is, will we work with Cheryl again? Absolutely!


Cindy Murashima

Sold a home in 2012 in Coto de Caza, CA 92679.

Cheryl helped us sell our home quickly through a relocation company. She was very familiar with the standard as well as the relocation process. After interviewing 2 other realtors we chose Cheryl to represent us because of her knowledge of the market, optimism in helping us meet our sale price goal, hard working determination and negotiation skills. Her team helped us prepare our home to get top dollar. When it came down to negotiating time she really had our back. We did not feel that we were just another listing to her. It is obvious that she takes pride in her work. I would not hesitate to recommend Cheryl Lynch.


Alissa Parks

Sold a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $225K in Foothill Ranch, CA.

Cheryl helped me finding the tenants and sold two bedroom condo in Irvine area. I would strongly recommend her to my families and friends! I’ve known her over 4 years now and she is very professional, smart, and knows what to do in every situation. I have to say that she is definatey my favorite real estate professional!


Dave + Nancy Dickerson

Sold a Single Family home in 2002 for approximately $500K in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA.

We interviewed several agents when we sold our Rancho Cielo home in 2002 and found Cheryl to be the most knowledgable and accommodating. Cheryl was terrific to work with and quickly sold our home. If you are looking to sell your home or buy a new one, I would highly recommend using Cheryl.


Dionne Heiner

Bought a Single Family home in 2002 for approximately $650K in Ladera Ranch, CA.

Cheryl is friendly, personable, and learns exactly what her buyers like so she can perfectly match what’s available to their needs. She is proactive, ensuring that nothing is missed and no time is wasted. Cheryl knows every type of material used in housing construction and can tell if something is quality or done to save money. She works very hard for her clients. I highly recommend Cheryl Lynch for real estate needs.


Elizabath Young

Bought a home in Rancho Santa Margarita in 2011.

We bought an investment home from Cheryl last year. She is very knowledgable about the market and a pleasure to work with. I will use her for my next transaction in real estate that I have because I trust her. I always liked her responsiveness during the escrow process as this was a short sale and dealing with the bank can be hard for an agent with not as much experience.


Josh & Julie Hearn

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $375K in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA.

Cheryl is an AMAZING agent! She takes the time to actually listen to the buyer’s wants and needs, then finds the right house for you. We worked with Cheryl for about 9 months before we closed on our first home. She was always available and never seemed to grow tired of showing us home after home. We probably looked at about 150 homes in the area. She took notes and always remembered what we liked and didn’t like about certain homes. She was very particular in the homes she showed us and had OUR best interest in mind. She put us in touch with an awesome lender (Brad Turpin, who I will review separately) and helped to make sure that we had the best experience possible. Cheryl was so helpful and thoughtful I decided to take real estate courses and become an agent myself!


Bob + Stacy Reece

Sold a Single Family home in 2004 in Coto De Caza, CA.

Cheryl is wonderful to work with. She gives your real estate needs the personal attention you are looking for. She is knowledgable in every step in the sale and purchase of your home.


Anna & Terry Kwit

Sold a Single Family home in 2003 for approximately $700K in Coto De Caza, CA.

Cheryl has been a friend of my family for 12 years now. She has represented us in multiple transactions, and has always been our “go-to” agent for knowledge of the local markets and specific properties we have interest in. She is a seasoned real estate professional and a reliable point of reference for our questions on market conditions, trends, personal and investment properties, and general real estate topics. Cheryl is responsive, and always enthusiastic and eager to assist us on any matter, whether it is showing us a property on short notice, running reports and comparative analyses, or guiding us on a investment strategy or purchase decision. Cheryl is a pleasure to work with, and her no-pressure approach makes for a nice relationship. In addition, she is well-connected in the business with a wide network of resources to serve all of one’s real estate needs.


Steve & Wendy Swyter

Bought a home in 2012 in Coto de Caza, CA 92679.

Cheryl Lynch acted as our Real Estate broker on the “buy” side. In over a year of searching for the right home, Cheryl was nothing but respectful and patient during our search for the perfect home. She constantly brought us new home ideas that were within the boundaries of our “wish lists” and did not waste our time with those that were not. When it came time to transact a deal on the propert we wanted, Cheryl helped us comp the home, provided candid feedback on our offers and ultimately helped us close on the home we were absolutely jazzed about. During entire transaction, Cheryl was nothing short of amazing, very professional, and a very fun partner in this search for our family! Cheryl has our full endorsement!


Mark & Diane Warren

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Coto De Caza, CA

Cheryl was instrumental in helping us purchase our dream home (which wasn’t even on the market when she found it for us!). She showed us over 35 homes over 2 years and she never waivered. She was always patient and supportive, even when we walked away from a short-sale home she fought 5 months to get for us. She is a great advocate for her clients and will never give up until they are happy.


Larry & Gail Goswiller

Found a tenant for a Single Family home in Coto De Caza, CA.

I met Cheryl roughly three years ago when my wife and I were purchasing a SFR for rental purposes. She represented the seller and I represented myself as I have a broker’s license even though I do not make my living as a broker. I was so impressed with the way Cheryl properly represented her client that I chose to use her to find a tenant for the property, which she quickly did. The tenant had some credit issues from a divorce and I didn’t think I wanted him, but Cheryl said I should meet with him and hear his story. He convinced me he was the right tenant for the property and almost three years later he has been the best tenant I have ever had. When it comes time to buy another property or sell the subject, I will rely on Cheryl’s expertise and hire her.


Steve Becker

Helped me rent a Condo home in Coto De Caza, CA.

I have only known Cheryl for a brief time, but the property she worked with me on went “very smoothly” and I was impressed with how quickly and efficiently she handled everything. Cheryl has certainly earned the opportunity to work with me on other real estate transactions going forward. If your looking for a hard working agent with a ton of energy, you owe it to yourself to get in contact with Cheryl.
