Cheryl Hoksch was a wonderful realtor to work with. We had a very narrow window of time to look for a house. My husband & I felt like Cheryl honored our time by showing us good, realistic housing options in our price range. She listened to our specific needs and wants in a house. Cheryl was very quick to respond to our questions. She closed our deal in a professional manner. We would recommend her to anyone!

Another agent - from another firm - had the property for over one and a half years and never produced an offer. Michelle noted some items that needed attention and did some staging that produced a reasonable offer within two weeks.

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
We worked with Cheryl and Michelle both and they have the knowledge, expertise and personality to help with very important real estate decisions. Their personalities are helpful and they offer good guidance and care. We felt we were in good hands with Cheryl and Michelle and we would highly recommend them.

Joy adds a very personal touch to her service. Her enthusiasm is contagious. I loved the way she pointed out pros and cons about each property without bias. Her attention to detail and constant communication with the people involved ensured a smooth sale. Special situations do not scare her away. I highly recommend her to anyone!

We recently purchased our first home and connected with Joy based on the recommendation of some close friends who had also worked with Joy when they purchased their first home. Excellent and timely communication skills, also very attentive to our needs strategically and emotionally throughout the "first-time home-buyer" process! Things went extremely smooth from the time our offer was accepted through to closing, thanks to Joy who kept in touch with updates and what we needed to do. We are so happy in our first home!

We were very pleased with Joy. She is knowledgeable, friendly, personable and extremely responsive. She cares about her clients and we would not hesitate to refer her to any future buyers/sellers. We will surely be use Joy again in our future selling and/or buying needs. Joy made sure we were satisfied and comfortable with every decision/agreement we made between us and the seller and would not settle for anything less. She is eager to please and was here for us from the moment we met her until after we closed on our house. We can't wait to show our home to Joy with the changes we made to it and how we've decorated it. Less ... More

Joy did a great job in finding the perfect place for me to move to. She was excellent at staying in contact with me during all the steps of the home search. Joy made sense of all the necessary steps of buying a condo. Any questions or concerns were addressed right away. Joy was with me for every step of the way and made my first time home purchase very easy!

Joy was absolutely wonderful to work with. We had a very tricky negotiation process, and she knew exactly what it took to land us the home that we wanted. She was very friendly and open throughout the process. We had a lot of questions as first time home buyers, and she was able to guide us through with no problems. I have already recommended her to many of my friends. We will absolutely be working with Joy again in the future.

Your review helps others decide on the right agent for them. Please tell others why you would recommend this agent. From first contact with Joy, we could tell that she was not only knowledgeable, but maintained a high degree of effort in terms of representing her clients interests and making sure that they received the best possible results from the process. She is truly concerned with pleasing her clients, making sure they are content with the results, and helpful in explaining the process to the buyer in terms that are easy to understand. I would definitely recommend her services to someone interested in a home or condo purchase. Joy was always upbeat, friendly and processional in her interactions with us. She was aware of our budget and made sure she found us the best value in our range. She also cautioned us regarding an option that would have been a difficult sale and eventually found us the perfect condo at the right price and with the features we needed. Less ... More

Michelle was the consummate professional to work with on a somewhat difficult transaction. She portrayed the utmost in respect for all parties involved and I feel it was her cool head and professionalism that kept this transaction on track and able to move quickly & seamlessly to a successful closing. I enjoyed working with her and look forward to working with her again. Her knowledge, expertise and integrity is unmatched in the real estate industry.

The Yoo Team are incredibly kind, genuine, honest and down to earth people. We primarily worked with Marine to find a home or land lot. He was always available day or night to talk or answer questions. He went above and beyond to set up showings last minute and even on Mother's Day. (Which is the day we first walked through our now new home! ??) Marine was patient especially when we had to end out home search for a while in 2014, and was ready to work when we started our search again in 2015. We are so incredibly lucky to have been Able to work with The Yoo Team as we had back luck in the past with a different realtor and even a builder. I would absolutely without a doubt recommend Michelle, Marine and The Yoo Team to anyone looking to buy or sell their home! Less ... More

The Yoo team was professional in all aspects--they let my wife and I make our own decisions, without any pressure and with a lot of sound knowledge. We were offered flexible hours to see properties. We were consistently shown homes (via emails, etc.), which fit our criteria, until the right one came along. The support we got was the best we have had, and this comes with much experience for us.

This was by far, the BEST experience we've had working with a realtor to sell our home. The Yoo Team provided us with a full-service experience and the valuable information we needed to sell our home fast. I could not believe how fast our home sold! Michelle is smart, professional, very tech-savvy (our home listing had a lot of visibility and got us quite a few viewings the weekend it hit the market) . She made us feel like we were very important to her and is very responsive and knowledgable with any questions we had. I HIGHLY recommend Michelle/The Yoo Team to anyone in the market for buying or selling a home. I promise you will not be disappointed! Less ... More

We were extremely happy with The Yoo Team. We were first time home buyers and they held our hand all the way to closing. There were bumps in the road with the house being ready on time and with who provided our financing but Michelle was always right there to fix any issues and was always available when we had questions or needed to be calmed down. I would recommend Michelle and the Yoo team to any friends or family members.

Without hesitation, we would recommend Cheryl and Michelle to anyone selling a home! Their knowledge and expertise is a tremendous asset. They are systematic, smart, and savvy. The Yoo Team provides professional services including utilizing experts in the fields of staging, photography, and marketing. They rely on experts in those fields to optimize performance, not all realtors do this and it made a distinctive difference. From beginning to end, Michelle and Cheryl take the necessary steps to streamline the numerous tasks involved in getting a home ready to list. At the end of the process, our home had never looked better. The recommendations optimized upgrades and changes that made the biggest impact for the lowest costs. Once the house hit the market, it had instant activity, and within two weeks we had two solid offers on our home. Our home had been on the market six months prior to listing with the Yoo Team and we had no serious offers during that time. Ultimately we decided to list with the Yoo Team based on a referral from a friend who said that the Yoo Team has a reputation for selling homes quickly and efficiently. They exceeded our expectations. Cheryl and Michelle utilize technology and are cognizant of the trends in realty. They are professional and go above and beyond in their services. They both respond quickly to questions and make themselves available nights and weekends. They know recent updates in law and policies and we were confident in their skill set and expertise; in addition, they are able to explain this in layman terms. The Yoo Team is a driving force in 21st century marketing and home sales. It has been a pleasure doing business with them. Less ... More

My family and I have had great success working with Michelle and her team. Many individuals and families will choose to try and buy/sell their home without a realtor but for us "time is money" and we simply did not have the time nor the expertise. We listed our house and had an accepted offer in only a few days and within $2500 of our asking price. The new house and property we bought was not a typical residential home, it was more complicated and yet Michelle and Marine were able to help us navigate the challenges and unfamiliar territory.

I worked with Michelle Yoo's team member, Joy and Joy is awesome. As a first time home buyer, I was somewhat paranoid about getting a bad deal but I could tell after the first time looking at homes with Joy, that I was in good hands. I think the biggest advantage I saw working with her was that she would point out things that kept me informed. When I made the decision on the house, I felt like I had all the necessary information and knowledge to make that informed decision and felt very comfortable about buying the house that I was buying and the money I was paying for it. Also Joy was extremely responsive in all of her follow ups and I will sit down one day to see how she keeps this up because her follow ups were super-impressive. Ultimately, it boils down to this: Joy is very friendly and extremely professional at the same time and for that I will always recommend her to anybody looking to buy a home. Less ... More

My husband and I bought our first home last month with the help of the Yoo Team. It was a nerve-racking process, which is why we are so extremely grateful for the service we received along the way from the Yoo Team. They explained every step, answered every question, and helped us through all the ups and downs of the experience. We never felt as though we were a burden, even when we were confronted with situations we didn't understand and had many, many questions. In the end we found a home that we absolutely love, and I know we couldn't have navigated our way through the process without their help. A thank you is not enough!! Less ... More

Michelle is certainly a go-getter! She is very knowledgeable and takes pride in her work and experience. Cheryl from her office was actually the one to show me homes in the area. She was very prompt in getting back me from my initial contact, actually within a few hours. The home we purchased was a foreclosed property and we had many hoops to jump through. She and Michelle helped make it all happen. Now we have the beautiful lake home that we've always dreamed about!

I couldn't believe how patient and engaging Michelle was! I must have looked at over 10 houses with her and not once did I ever get the feeling that I was a burden or wasting her time. She answered every single one of my questions fully and I never felt like I was out of my league. This was because I knew she had my back. Eventually, I found my perfect home and despite the other party being a difficult and obstinate negotiator, Michelle took care of ALOT of the details and issues without ever stressing me. I thought I knew alot about contracts and mortgage issues, but Michelle's expertise blew me out of the water. I cannot recommended her enough.
