In the age of High Technology, Automated Responses, and Online Forms, Rest Assured that we are Happy to conduct a Face to Face Discussion at your Convenience!
Your House doesn’t need to be ready to Sell for us to meet and discuss your real estate options. A visit to your home, even 6 months prior to your desired selling time, can be extremely beneficial. The earlier we conduct a Market Analysis of your home, the more time you will have to prepare before selling.
During a quick tour of your home, I will identify changes you should consider making to maximize your equity. Many homes South of the River are reaching a tired looking stage. Learn the simple changes and minor adjustments you can make to ensure your home Appeals to Buyers!
Home buyers in Apple Valley, Burnsville, and Eagan will have more tolerance for dated looking homes. The home buyers in Lakeville, Rosemount, Farmington, Savage and Prior Lake expect the inventory of homes to feel newer, be more updated and modern looking.
Making changes to your home should always be a decision based on the return on investment. Changes we suggest for your home can be organized into three categories; 1) Preventing Loss of Equity, 2) Ensuring Sale-ability, and 3) Maximizing Potential Sales Price.
Examples include 1) repairing minor leaks or damages, 2) staging, painting and decluttering or 3) replacing appliances and carpeting.
The level of recommended changes for your home will depend on the overall value, the competing properties and your desired level of investment.
Early preparation of your home can make a difference to your South of the River Home’s Net Value. Call 612-889-6496 or email today to schedule a time for your Free Onsite Evaluation!

My fiancé and I had a great experience working with Sheryl! We started out looking at used houses in the Apple Valley, Eagan, Lakeville area and eventually settled on purchasing a new house in Lakeville. Her wide breadth of knowledge for both used and new houses really helped us feel comfortable in the decisions that we were making. She was always available for questions and was exceptionally helpful in helping us through a miscommunication that came up with the developer and the city. We highly recommend Sheryl as a realtor!
Sheryl did a great job selling our home, took only 14 days to get a purchase agreement. Communicated excellently between buyer and seller. She's very experienced and has seen it all. Highly recommend Sheryl, AAA+.
We feel fortunate to have worked with Sheryl and her entire team! They spent so much time and energy showing us houses and explaining
the process. As first time home buyers we had many questions and Sheryl was always available to answer them and make sure we understood everything . We feel confident that Sheryl's experience , confidence , and skillful presentati on is what helped us get our dream home and made the whole process run smoothly. We are very grateful to Sheryl and her whole team and highly recommend them to anyone looking to purchase a home
Sheryl and Bo went above and beyond expectation with ideas, personal attention and services for enhancing my buying experience on both the buying and selling side of the equation. They were organized, professional and set expectations that ultimately proved to be spot on.
Sheryl Petrashek has been our realtor for many years. She has helped us with several real estate transactions, both buying and selling. Sheryl is extremely knowledgeable, experienced, and very professional. We would highly recommend her to everyone. She and her wonderful team have gone above and beyond to ensure a very smooth process with each of our real estate transactions.
She was communicative, efficient and worked very hard to help us sell our home! Our townhouse sold faster than we thought and we got what we wanted for it. She was very helpful!!
Sheryl and her team helped us sell a difficult piece of property, a condominium we owned for quite awhile. They were wonderful! Her team handled the complicated sale extremely well! They were always responsive and thoughtful. Sheryl especially, helped walk us through the process and always communicated what the next steps would be so we could stay prepared. I really felt that they put our needs first and they did it with a smile. Even though they were busy, we always felt like we were their only clients. Sheryl was the perfect Realtor to sell our home. We will definitely use her again for our future real estate needs and we would recommend everyone we know to her and her team.
We have used Sheryl to sell and buy two homes in the last 15 years and have found her to be the ultimate professional. From tips on preparing our home right down to negotiating a PA. She was always a phone call away. We have also referred her to two different family members over the years and would not hesitate to refer her again.
I had a great experience with Sheryl and her entire team. She was available for questions anytime I had them and was flexible in scheduling time to view properties. I'd highly recommend her to anyone else I know that is purchasing a home as her knowledge and expertise made my home buying experience fun, exciting and most of all, painless. Aaron, Maple Grove
This was our second house with Sheryl, she's done a fantastic job both times. She and Bo are very knowledgeable about the sale and purchase of homes. We will definitely be using them again for the third house! Thanks again Bo and Sheryl!
Sheryl is a great realtor. She had great resources and go to people for project work. I appreciate her marketing approach. Her website was great. The photos of the house were done nicely. She was willing to help us with anything we need and explained the sales process well.
This is a second time that I worked with Sheryl in purchasing my home and all I can say that both times I felt like I was her only client. I had specific need for a particular floor plan and she was amazing at finding exactly want I needed/wanted. She puts time and effort to make her clients fully satisfied. She is extremely knowledgable and gives great advice.
Sheryl was such a joy to work with when selling our first home! She made the process very smooth and my husband and I knew we could trust her with every detail. She was upfront and honest so we had very real expectations when listing our home. She exceeds the competitors in marketing and knowledge of the market. We always knew Sheryl was on our side and in every situation she represented us with integrity and professionalism. We would refer all of our family and friends to her and we will definitely be customers of hers again. We had an offer on our home in 3 days and sold our home more quickly than we imagined! Sheryl and her team are wonderful!
Sheryl leveraged her strong knowledge of the real estate marketplace and her negotiation skills to obtain a lucrative price for the home we recently sold and assist us in the purchase of our new home. She took care to ensure that all aspects of the sale and purchase processes kept progressing on a timely basis and handled obstacles skillfully to support our best interest. I would highly recommend Sheryl’s services to anyone and everyone in need of a professional who gets the job done!
Sheryl is a very caring agent.She will do everything she can to help you. She also found us a home. She is the best you can find. Thanks for everything. By the way Bo is great too.
Sheryl - You represent the essence of what we feel a realtor should be. Your commitment to the sale of our home was always present as we felt completely assured that everything was under control. Your knowledge in the market and explanations to our questions were always communicated in a prompt response weather it was directly from you or one of your assistants in your office. Thank you for making us feel as though we were your only client even though we were aware of how perpetually busy you were. We have and will continue to recommend you to everyone we know!! Blessings!
I recently sold my home and used Sheryl and her team as my realtor. Before the transaction was even complete I was already recommending her to my family and friends. She has such a broad understanding of the market and has a passion for what she does. I really appreciated the one on one time she spent with me to explain the market conditions, my home’s value and all of the options available to me. Sheryl is my realtor for life!
This is my second time working with Sheryl and her team. She makes the process of buying and selling your home so easy! Always keeps you informed and gives great advice! Very patient with whatever questions or concerns that I had. Made the home selling process a breeze! I will definitely use her again in the future and highly recommend her to anyone who wants to buy or sell their home.
Sheryl has been a godsend to us in the last few months. Not only has she helped us sell our old home in LESS THAN A WEEK, she is also helping us in the process of building our new home. Sheryl is everything you want in a realtor: personable, knowledgeable, honest, a great communicator and she has great integrity. She hasn't just been our realtor but she's also become a friend; it says a lot when you look forward to meetings and conversations with your realtor! If you want someone you can trust who will also make the process fun you need Sheryl!
The Petrashek Team was great. Very organized and excellent about keeping us informed. This was the first opportunity to work with Bo and he too was spot on about his recommendations. He gave us sound advise on different aspects of each property we chose to review. When we put our house on the market, Sheryl was excellent at what we should ask and what we should expect to receive. She was right on the money. I'm so glad we partnered with this team again. I hope to be in this house a long time, but if anything should change, I would only call on Sheryl Petrashek for the outstanding results we have received.
Sheryl has handled multiple transactions for me and members of my family. Each time she has outperformed in her analysis of the market condition, her preparation of the home for sale, marketing the property through on-line, traditional marketing resources and in person efforts, hosting multiple showings, handling multiple offers, negotiations, and ultimately the closing. I have worked with many Real Estate Agents personally and in a professional capacity in the past. Because of the number of properties I have been a party to the sale of, I am often asked for recommendations. Sheryl is the only Agent I recommend. I appreciate her market knowledge, her no nonsense attitude, her willingness to discuss and consider strategies, as well as her ability to handle all parties including seller, buyers, renters and other interested parties. She has consistently gone over and above to get the home sold for the highest possible price
I am beyond delighted with the services I received from Sheryl, and her team! Sheryl’s marketing strategies for the sale of my townhome were incredibly well thought and professional, and as a result, my townhome sold very quickly. In a competitive market, Sheryl ensured that I was able to see new homes as soon as possible during my search for a new home. Sheryl, and her team, remained in constant contact, and they were always there to answer any questions that I had, or schedule a showing at the drop of a hat. The selling, and buying, processes were beyond smooth and I couldn’t be more grateful for the services I received. Sheryl’s years of experience, marketing strategies, and communication made the selling, and buying, processes painless and easy. I would highly recommend Sheryl’s services for your selling and buying needs. Thanks for everything to Sheryl, and team!
Sheryl and Bo are a great team and put together an outstanding marketing plan for our home. The result was seven showings and multiple offers in three days on the market and a sale for more than our asking price. The follow through on the details has been outstanding. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great agent.
Sheryl has been great throughout the entire process of finding and negotiating the purchase of our new home. We feel as though we have always been her top priority. Her responsiveness to our questions and concerns and her dedication to our project has been outstanding. Her knowledge of the local area and the construction methods and terminology is impressive beyond compare. She has made the entire experience very pleasant and painless. We will highly recommend her to anyone planning to buy a home.
Sheryl was referred to us for our unique home buying experience. Her understanding our of needs ensured that our initial property purchase would ultimately allow us to fulfill on our home building goals. Sheryl market knowledge with property visits were always spot on and informative. She always had her information prepared and outlined to provide the best options a property had to offer. Sheryl's candor navigating those options was very much appreciated, as she always kept our long term goals in site. Sheryl is an "all-in" agent. She will ensure that your expectations - start to finish - will be met, and that your home buying experience will be a pleasant one!
Sheryl is absolutely wonderful! In this economy I thought selling our home would be next to impossible but Sheryl made it so easy! Sheryl will go that extra mile for you. She is extremely knowledgeable and offered great advice and recommendations to get our home ready for showings. She is not only very professional but very likeable and friendly. I highly recommend Sheryl and look forward to working with her to buy my next home!
Sheryl Petrashek & her team were a great support through our downsizing this last year. From the beginning Sheryl listened and made wonderful suggestions to what updating was needed to get our house ready to sell. Her expert knowledge with the market analysis and explaining to us in layman terms so we could understand was much appreciated. She never pushed us to sell sooner than we were ready. She gave us all the pros & cons for what season to put the house on the market was best, and when we were finally ready it happened in the Fall and Sheryl was all in! Once the house sold, her whole team jumped into action, with helping us find a new place to live and working out all the little details to get us to closing. We will always be grateful for choosing Sheryl to represent us in the journey that we’ve been on. When we sell/buy our new house Sheryl will be the one we call. OUTSTANDING!!
It was so nice to work with good people like the Petrashek family. From our first contact, their understanding, patience and promptness in answering our many questions was so appreciated. This was our first experience in selling a home and the Petrashek's made it a very satisfying experience. We will recommend them to all our Minnesota friends.
We selected Sheryl over two other highly recommended Realtors and she was the perfect fit to sell our home. We had an unusually complicated assignment and the depth of Sheryl’s experience and attention to detail was outstanding. She genuinely cared about our best interests and provided a level service that is beyond what we have found with other Realtors. We would recommend her to anyone considering the sale of their home, especially in the Twin Cities South metro. Tony and Jennifer, Inver Grove Heights.
Working with Sheryl has been great. She's extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the buying and selling process and is able to give expert advise. She and her staff are very organized and do a wonderful job of keeping us informed of all the moving parts. We appreciate the work of Sheryl and all the others who have helped us with this process.
I first met Sheryl in 2006 when we sold our first home. She impressed me immediately. She’s knowledgeable, experienced and savvy in real estate. Sheryl calmly explains the process because it can be overwhelming and stressful, at least for me. Her “customer service level” is understanding as she returns calls or emails in a timely manner or her “team” does. My husband and I would give Sheryl Petrashek and 5 star A+ rating and would recommend her without hesitation. I have given my entire family her name for their future real estate needs! THANK YOU SHERYL FOR EVERYTHING!
Hard worker doesn't even begin to describe Sheryl's drive to go above and beyond the call of duty. She is extremely knowledgeable and without a doubt has her client's best interest in mind. Would choose her again and again and would highly recommend!!
Sheryl and her team are fantastic. They were there every step of the way for us. We sold our house in 4 days for the asking price. We would recommend Sheryl to anyone.
Sheryl is in the process of helping us to prepare and understand the current market. Her knowledge of the real estate trends and in depth analysis allows us to maximize the sale of our home. Along with her being patient, helpful, enthusiastic and the most understanding person to work with! We look forward on working with her!!
I am so glad I got to work with Sheryl and Remax Results. Sheryl was open, totally flexible to my schedule, and very good at keeping me updated and informed about homes available. After helping me finally find the perfect place the entire team did a great job of guiding me through the process and preparing me for an easy and successful closing. Honestly, I don’t think finding and buying a home has ever been easier. Thanks
Sheryl Petrashek was an amazing find! She took me through the buying process of my first investment property! She did this with the upmost class, integrity and professionalism. She was well informed on any and all areas of concern, and if there was something she wasn't supremely sure of, she did her research and had an answer to me usually within a few hours, and always before the end of the day. I would highly recommend anyone looking to contact Sheryl!
After accepting a promotional opportunity in another state, I had no choice but to put my house on the market during the late fall which was by no means ideal. With very few people looking to buy during that time, you can imagine my angst. Sheryl however kept us very informed along the way telling not to panic and gave me great advice on when I should slightly drop the price a bit or when to hold tight. During the winter months when I was no longer in my home, she also made sure to physically check out my house each week to be sure the furnace was still working and no pipes issues. Another huge weight off my shoulders. She also knows her stuff in regards to marketing. She literally spent one afternoon helping me arrange my furniture to make sure my house photographed well for the online photos. She also uses a professional photographer, so the pictures were great!
Working with Sheryl has been great. She's extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the buying and selling process and is able to give expert advice. She and her staff are very organized and do a wonderful job of keeping us informed of all the moving parts. We appreciate the work of Sheryl and all the others who have helped us with this process."
I would highly recommend Sheryl. She originally helped us find our first home back in 2012. We thought she was so terrific that we decided to use her again to sell our current home and find us our next home. She goes way above and beyond what any other realtor would do. She always responded back immediately to any questions we had, filled us in on everything and made sure we understood the next steps. She showed us many homes and never made us feel like we were inconviencing her. You can tell she truly loves her job and she is great at it! She helped us find our dream home yet again. Will definitely work with her again if we need to move.
I can't say enough about Sheryl and her services. I'm completely impressed and satisfied with the handling of the sale of my home. Sheryl's honesty and integrity shines through from the beginning to the end of the process of selling my home. She did a fantastic job marketing my home and delivered exactly what I wanted/needed to sell my condo. Sheryl and her office made selling flawless and very easy.
Sheryl is very knowledgable . Keeps up with market trends and advises you accordingly. Easy to work with. Does a great job working with you to get your house ready to place on market. Answers phone calls promptly and calls you on the progress of the sale.
Wonderful experience and a great realtor with no pressure sales! Always willing to make things happen!
Sheryl worked with my husband and me to sell our house at a difficult location. Sheryl tried many approaches and we successfully sold our house. I really feel it was because of Sheryl's thorough and consistant effort with showings, open houses, and marketing that made the difference. Sheryl is a great agent and partner in this process. She also helped us find our next home!
We had our townhouse on the market for over 7 months with another realtor and had no offers. Sheryl was recommended to us by a friend, so we decided to switch and give her a try. Within two weeks of working with Sheryl, we had an offer and sold our townhouse. She also found us a wonderful new home to purchase. Sheryl and her team made the whole process seamless and effort free. If you want great results, Sheryl is the realtor for you. Thank you!
Sheryl Petrashek was great throughout the process. Her marketing strategy along with her many years of experience is what sold us. Once we began working with her she was very responsive and we especially appreciated her attention to detail while looking over the offers and walking us through each one. I would definitely recommend Sheryl and her team to others.
We went thru much effort to find a realtor that provided a real value added to the process. The recommendation from Greg Bjorkland led to us interviewing you. We were very impressed by the type and degree of analysis done to determine the market for our home; for the multiple channels to the marketplace that you used; your team approach that covered all the time sensitive bases needed to get us to closing; and probably most of all; your really profound ability and insight in analyzing and handling sensitive issues and negotiations. Barb & I found ourselves saying about 6 different times throughout this experience how incredibly grateful we were that we had Sheryl on the job. And I don't hesitate to say that I've never said that about any realtor before. Thank you again!
It was a pleasure working with Sheryl in the recent sale of my home. She is so knowledgeable of so many aspects of real estate including markets and home construction. Her people skills and ethics are impeccable. I would highly recommend her as your realtor.
Sheryl Petrashek and her team could not be more professional. It was our families first time buying a home and we definitely felt very confident she was going to get us the best possible deal. She was always easy to reach and responded to any questions we had immediately. Having her expertise on our side made the process that much easier. I would recommend Sheryl to anyone who needs expert and professional real estate advice or needs. She even recommends my uncle for anyone in need of handy work in the south metro area. There were three other offers on the house we wanted and Sheryl worked her magic. She treated our family with the utmost respect and was a delight to work with.
Brian and I chose to work with Sheryl because of the wonderful experience we had with her when we purchased our current home. Sheryl guided us through every aspect of selling our current home and buying our new home. She gave us advice on staging our home and responded to our questions quickly. Overall, we had a wonderful experience working with Sheryl.
Sheryl was very instrumental in both the purchase of our new home and sale of our old home at the price(s) we wanted. She is very knowledgeable about properties and their values. Whenever I needed to talk to her she would always respond. Not only is she a great Realtor but a better person you won't find. You won't regret having Sheryl as your listing agent. She gets thing done.
