Our experience selling our home with Sheri and her team was wonderful! Right from the start Sheri was more prepared and knowledgeable than the other agents we interviewed. She was always available to answer our questions promptly and gave us the information we need to feel comfortable every step of the way on the sale of our first home. The whole team was very professional and courteous throughout the whole process. Sheri was very considerate of our situation and always looked out for our interests. The staging, provided without charge, is a must! Our home looked like a model and it helped us stand out against the competition. We're happy to say Sheri was able to get us multiple full price offers within a few days of going on the market. She also prepared a fantastic package of comps to help with the appraisal. We would highly recommend Sheri for anyone looking to sell their home. Less ... More

Sheri is outstanding in every way. My husband and I had far from a normal (if there is one) listing and sale of our home. My husband became very ill shortly after we listed, we were out of state on vacation, and I was not able to return to Lake Ridge until after our home sold a few months later. It would have sold earlier if I had not had to back off because we were in constant crisis with my husband. I say all that to say this: Sheri was responsive (and caring!) in every possible way during this time. She is a consummate professional, and I cannot possibly put into words how much her support, encouragement, as well as the above ratings of her knowledge, expertise, responsiveness and negotiation skills meant to me. At one of the worst times of my life she was there, and I cannot say enough to express my gratitude to her and her team for all of their efforts on our behalf. Sheri is one of a kind! Less ... More

We selected Sheri primarily due to her knowledge of the local neighborhood and market. Not only did she surpass our expectations in market knowledge, she helped us negotiate through a challenging contract negotiation. Without her we would not have sold our home!

I have known Sheri for almost 15 years, and she has represented me in the sale and purchase of two different homes - one in 2000, and again in 2013. She is an extremely professional and talented real estate agent that served my interests to the highest degree. My most recent transactions proved to be one of the most challenging for her (in my opinion) since I was serving in an overseas assignment, and needed to sell my old house and downsize into a new house and subsequently move all within the space of a six week home leave. Sheri rose to the challenge tremendously, and amazingly everything worked out better than I ever could have expected. She helped me find contractors to get my old house fixed up to put on the market, and she and her team staged the house so that it looked gorgeous and picture perfect for viewings. We had a full purchase price offer within 24 hours of being on the market. Sheri's team then swung into action to help me find a new house to move into, and we found my dream house and went to closing just a few weeks later. I couldn't be happier with the way things worked out, and none of this would have been possible without Sheri! Less ... More

We were desperate to sell our house in this down turn economy. We had just ended a contract with a real estate agent we had used before and who came highly recommended, but when our house didn't sell we were almost ready to reconsider our decision to accept new jobs and sell our beloved house. Sheri is not only knowledgeable, but has an incredible design ability to stage a house to sell. Within a week of signing with her, our home looked like a model home. We almost decided to take it off of the market because it looked so beautiful. We got a contract within a few weeks and sold it to an incredible family. Sheri Foley was knowledgeable, responsive, but above all she cared. I knew that we were in good hands by the emotional support she provided during the stress of selling our dream home. It is hard to find exemplary service in an era when everything is online, but I highly recommend Sheri Foley if you want a Real Estate Agent who knows this business and cares about you more than flipping your house.

Helped me buy home
Sheri is just awesome! I was buying my first home and I contacted Sheri's office. When I called, Sheri answered and right away I knew I had found the right real estate agent. She was kind and during our first interaction she promptly took my information and assured me that she would assist me with finding my new home right away. Sheri is very responsive. Whenever I called or emailed her, she always provided a prompt response. Sheri made me feel like finding my home was priority. Sheri is also very knowledgeable as she answered all my questions and addressed my concerns during the home buying process. Overall, Sheri is a wonderful person, she's honest and she definitely helped lessen the stresses of the home buying process. If you're still looking for a real estate agent, stop looking and call Sheri. Less ... More

My wife and I made a deposit on a residence in a Scottsdale, Arizona retirement community in April 2014 and were required to move in by October 1. Our primary challenge was selling our home in Woodbridge, Virginia, and coordinating the shipment of our household goods with the settlement date of the sale in time to meet the October 1 deadline. Fortunately we selected Sheri Foley Allen as our realtor. Sheri first helped us determine a fair and reasonable asking price for our home and explained the costs associated with the sale allowing us to set a realistic goal for the net amount we could expect to receive at settlement. She also, advised us on how to prepare our house for viewing and all of the changes in the residential real estate business since we last sold a home thirty years earlier. Her advice proved prescient when we received offers within a day of our home?s appearing on the on the multiple listing service (MLS). Sheri also gave us excellent recommendations for contractors that could remedy some minor discrepancies noted in the mandatory home inspection. When we asked if she could recommend a cross country moving company she vectored us to the most professional and competent movers that we have experienced over a twenty-eight year military career encompassing many moves. We departed the area the day after settlement having been assured by the settlement company that the settlement deposit would appear in our bank account within one or two business days. We became alarmed when after three days no deposit had been registered. Sheri had encouraged us to contact her if we had any problems subsequent to settlement. We did, and the deposit appeared within a matter of hours after she queried the settlement company about the delay. Throughout the two-month process, Sheri was always prompt in responding to our queries and championing our interests in negotiations with the buyer. My wife and I are convinced that because of Sheri Allen we were able to sell the house promptly, meet out financial goals for the sale, have an anxiety-free move of our belongings, and have the confidence that once we left the area, Sheri would continue to represent our interests should any problems surface. She did it all, and she did it extremely well. We could not have made a better choice for our realtor. Less ... More

Helped me buy home
Sheri made our first homebuying experience painless; she worked with our crazy schedules to meet and see homes. Her team kept us up to date with the latest listings and when it came time to negotiate, it was a huge relief to know that she was representing us. Sheri's knowledge about Prince William County is extensive, and she understands how the character of many areas has changed in the last 20 years. Her history in this area and expertise made it easy for us to narrow down where we did and did not want to live and our time was never wasted on listings that just weren't for us. Lastly, Sheri is so warm and friendly that it was a real pleasure to work with her and spend time with her through many, many viewings! We would absolutely recommend her to any prospective buyers and will definitely be seeking her service when it's time for us to sell. Less ... More

I have purchased four houses, and sold two, with Sheri's help over the last 19 years. She is an outstanding realtor, and what's more, she is an amazing person. she always goes the extra mile for her clients, and this makes her stand out. She remembers all the little things you might not know or forget to look for when buying/selling a house. Sheri is very straightforward and you can trust that the information she gives you is well researched and accurate. If you want the best, then contact Sheri! Less ... More

I highly recommend Sheri Foley Allen to you as your trusted real estate agent. Through all of my many military moves in dealing with buying and selling homes, no one has come close to the expertise, professionalism, and willingness to always go the extra mile for her clients. She was an absolute delight to work with and she eliminated the stress in the entire selling process.

There are no words to express how wonderful Sheri and her team are!!! They went above and beyond in selling of our home. My husband and I couldn't have done it without Sheri and Karie Ann!!! From coming in and giving us suggestions to help us sell, to the staging, all the way through the signing of the documents - they were there. Beyond being a great realtor and having great teammates, she is a wonderful, caring, beautiful person. I was really sick when we sold our home and there was Sheri, offering to help me with that, too!!! My husband had already moved to our new home in a different state and knowing I was alone - she offered to help me - how many realtors do that!!! Less ... More

Sheri and her team were a pleasure to work with. Their knowledge about the local housing market helped us sell our home very quickly for full asking price. The team's suggestions for getting the house market-ready were accurate and Sheri's contacts in the area were reliable and affordable. The team's attention to detail - from staging to closing - made the entire process seamless and minimized the stress of selling our first home!

Sheri has assisted us on two real estate transactions to date, most recently the sale of our home in Manassas, VA. Sheri was very knowledgeable on current market trends, buyer mentality for getting our house show ready and providing valuable input during the negotiation process. Sheri and her team stay well connected so her overall responsiveness is excellent via cell, text and email communication lines. In summary, Sheri's professional services and marketing expertise resulted in a quick sale of our home at our target price. Less ... More

Sheri not only negotiated the sale of my elderly parents townhouse, but also arranged the shipment of their household furniture and vehicle from Virginia to Oregon. She is extremely proficient in all aspects of the selling and moving process. My parents could not be more satisfied with every facet of her work and on top of everything else, she has the ability to smooth out any rough spots and relieve any anxiety or stress that inevitably occur during the selling process. Sheri's' knowledge of the proper timing to accomplish what needs to be done at various times in the process speaks to her experience in her field. She always went the extra mile to assist my parents in whatever way was needed. My parents, my wife and I could not be more satisfied with the final result and believe the process would have been much more stressful and difficult without her expertise. Kent Taylor. Less ... More

Sheri, I just wanted to drop a line to say Hi and Thank you! I knew you were a fabulous agent when you helped me buy in 2008 BUT I now realize how amazing you were as my listing agent in 2013. You educated me on the market, comps and what price would allow me to sell in time for my wedding. You keep me abreast of progress even all at all times of the night. Even though we had a few curveballs along the way, you were right there when I needed you. The staging was amazing and we sold FAST! My husband and I are building a new home and we have our current home for sale. I wish I could say the same for the agent we are working with... I've learned that there are tons of agents out there.. but not all are gems like you. I can't thank you enough Less ... More
