To whom it may concern:

We met Cheryl Bretz two years ago. We chose her as a realtor because of her experience selling homes in Inglewood. The moment we met her, she seemed like family. After two years, we found a house that we wanted to call 'home'. The whole process was smooth. We sold our home and bought our new one in 19 days.

Cheryl Bretz is just wonderful! She does not put high pressure sales tactics on you. She understands that buying a home is exciting and an important decision. She is very knowledgeable about the real estate business. Cheryl is intelligent, honest, friendly, patient, and dedicated.

We just love Cheryl!!!! We appreciate everything she's done for us. We thank her for such a smooth home buying and selling experience. She will always be a #1 real estate agent because she has something that sets her apart from the rest'. That which sets her apart from the rest is a loving personality and a sweet spirit. We will always recommend her to others.

 Cheryl, I went to Keller Williams web site to try to find somewhere to write you a testimonial but I couldn't find a place. Here it is in case you have testimonials on your web site:

In over ten years of working with Realtors I have never met a Realtor as impressive as Cheryl Bretz. In my opinion she should serve as a model of what other Realtors should strive to be like. In a period where many Realtors come off as desperate and self serving, you always get the feeling that Cheryl is on your side and is looking out for your best interest. When Cheryl is selling your property it would be hard for anyone to tell if it's your house or hers, she's that good. Put it this way, Cheryl Bretz got a contract on my house within three weeks that closed a few weeks later for absolutely top dollar in the worst real estate market since the great depression. That speaks for itself.

Re: Letter of Recommendation for the Bretz Team



Dear Prospective Client:


Deciding whether to sell our property was a very difficult and emotional decision for us. Luckily, we hired the Bretz Team to handle the sale.


We owned a unique property in a high-demand area on the river bluff. But since the property had extensive structural issues, finding the appropriate price point was a challenge. At our first meeting, it was clear that Cheryl was a professional. She came to every meeting very well organized and prepared. Without telling us what price to set, Cheryl provided excellent information that helped us determine a fair price; one that allowed us to make a profit but still assure that it was affordable for a potential buyer.


Due to Cheryl's diligent efforts, we had four solid offers (two of them above our asking price) shortly after listing. Her efforts did not stop after the offer was accepted; she continued to work hard through each step of the process to assure that the deal would close.


Cheryl's extensive knowledge coupled with her kind and gracious demeanor made working with her a distinct pleasure. We are confident that we made the right decision about selling the property and are now well positioned for our future. We both feel that Cheryl and the Bretz Team deserve much of the credit for this.

I cannot say enough about Cheryl Bretz.
My husband and I had put off the purchase of a new home for a number of years simply
because we had such a traumatic experience with the agent we chose to use on the purchase of
our first home. Engaging Cheryl was the best decision we made when we decide to take the
plunge again.
In an industry where trust and communication is everything , Cheryl went above and
beyond our expectations. Thanks to Cheryl we were never caught off guard by any event or
decision, she educated us throughout the entire process, she never pushed or pulled us in any
direction and she tirelessly represented us, and only us, when we decided on a property.
Cheryl's 15 years experience in real estate and her financial background also made her a very,
very effective negotiator when it came to reaching an agreement on a sales price.
Cheryl also acted as a conduit between us and our mortgage lender. She intercepted and
addressed problems and answered questions which made a usually painstaking process, one of
the smoothest, easiest portions of the purchase.
Even now, after the closing and the transaction are history, Cheryl (the original
Energizer Bunny) still calls offering help and answering questions and concerns about our new
You do not want to go through a life event as large a home transaction without someone
like Cheryl Betz on your team. You will not only have the best representation available but
you'll come away with a friend for life. I'm considering asking her to accompany me on the
purchase of my next new car.
Happy new home owner,
Tammy James
