What People Are Saying About Cheryl
We interviewed a few realtors to find the one who would represent our property in the best light. We met Cheryl Foote and immediately knew she was the one to use. She wasted no time in preparing us and our home to be sold. Cheryl has a knowledgeable and approachable team to support the selling and closing process. We had two offers within a month of putting our home on the market. Cheryl expertly directed us through the negotiating and closing process. She is very knowledgeable of the Steamboat Springs market! We would highly recommend contracting with Cheryl and Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty.

As a former licensed Colorado Realtor and a current Wyoming Broker, it is difficult to be unable to handle your own property! That said, we knew we needed a Steamboat Realtor to properly market our 16 acre ranchette, and lined up 3 individuals I believed would do us a good job, Cherly Foote being the first. Wow! After that meeting we cancelled out on the others. Cheryl and two team members toured the property, asked questions and were extremely professional. They left no doubt that they were the team to hire. Cheryl informed us of what was needed, and suggested people in the field to use for various jobs. She set up the attorney, surveyor, salvage company and had things rolling immediately. Her team started photographing, questioning tenants - all the necessary steps for a successful sale. I felt that we were informed in a timely fashion of all movement related to the listing, however she always made clear that the decisions were up to the seller. We had an offer within 3 weeks, and a successful closing 4 weeks later. Cheryl Foote, her team, and Sotheby's is certainly my choice to use for a successful Real Estate transaction.

I would recommend Cheryl to anyone who wants to sell property in Steamboat. There were circumstances in my case that I thought would make the sale difficult. First, I have a disability that would make it impossible for me to actively participate. Cheryl took that right in stride. I made it clear that the condo was to be sold as-is and Cheryl was happy to market it accordingly.
Second, there was a tenant in the unit with just a month-to-month lease. I was impressed with the way Cheryl and her staff worked with my tennant on all aspects of acess, showings, appraisals, inspection and especially moving day. All of that went smoothly for me and my tenant.
The listing was posted less than two weeks after our first contact, just before Christmas. I really didn't expect any activity until after the new year, but an offer came in the day before Christmas. Cheryl worked through the holiday and we posted our counter just a few days later.
The buyer was difficult throughout the negotiation process. There were times when I thought the deal was collapsing, but Cheryl was persistent and always protective of my interests.
The final contract was signed less than a week before closing. With no time to spare Cheryl and her staff worked out the details with my tenant, movers, trash removal, cleaners and the title company.
In the end the unit was ready just hours before closing. I never even had to make a trip to Steamboat. I was able to close locally with the title company. Total time from first contact to closing was just about 6 weeks. I would not have thought any of that possible until I met Cheryl. She's top notch in my opinion.
I met Cheryl via her website as I was looking to upgrade from a small condominium into a larger property in Steamboat. Her website was very user friendly and before I contacted Cheryl I had a good idea what was out there within the parameters of price range, square footage, amenities, bedrooms, etc.
I met Cheryl a few years ago and gave her a challenging wish list. She worked her schedule around the precious time we non-locals have when in Steamboat to ski.
Cheryl sized up what we were looking for early on. While the inventory was more available when we started, we had to do some challenging rearranging to make it work, nonetheless, Cheryl knew we could afford what we wanted and pushed us when we would otherwise settle for something less than what we would ultimately be pleased with. Now that is insightful talent. Once we had our condo under contract and made the pieces work to buy what we could afford, the inventory of our property picks was scarce or unavailable. Cheryl went to work and inquired to homeowners who might want to sell (and with confidence it would work). And it did and we got what we had our sights set on in the first place on a property not on market. Now that is amazing and what we call in the service industry “above and beyond” service.
Once under contract, Cheryl and her team helped keep everything rolling from lists of things to get done and who would do them to all the minefields of transfer that always come up, especially since we live on the east coast. It is so refreshing to find folks like Cheryl and her team that work hard, work professionally and truly care for their client.
It was a pleasure working with Cheryl and the whole process went very smoothly. She knows the Steamboat area really well and was able to direct me to properties that would fit my needs and directed me away from others that wouldn't have been a good fit. I was able to find the perfect unit on the first day of looking and couldn't be happier! Cheryl and her team were very attentive through the whole closing process and made sure I was aware of all the deadlines. Everyone she recommended to work with was top notch from the mortgage lender to the inspector. I will definitely be using Cheryl again if I have real estate needs in the future and will recommend her to others that may be in the Steamboat market.
Working with Cheryl and her staff was an awesome experience. I was doing the transaction from New Jersey and they took care of some last minute items even before I asked!!! Everything was done in a very professional and timely manner. It was a very positive experience. I wish every real estate transaction was that easy!
From first phone call to final sale, we always felt fully supported and knew our home was in the right hands. The decisions were always made as a team, with amazingly knowledgeable input from Cheryl. We worked with Cheryl through all facets of the home selling process.The service Cheryl and her team provided my family was unbelievable. We moved across the country in the middle of our home being on the market, and thanks to Cheryl we never once had to worry about our home. A few significant changes were made to our home prior to selling. The process involved in these projects felt monumental to accomplish, until Cheryl and Chris took the reigns. I made zero phone calls to set up any of the work, I just received reassuring, thoughtful and informational phone calls on the completion of the projects. I truly feel that without Cheryl our home would still be sitting vacant, with a for sale sign in the yard. Cheryl and her teams diligent work lessened the extreme stress me and my family felt from moving across the country. Cheryl and Chris were always available and made us feel that we were a priority in the busy work day. No matter time or place, Cheryl would make sure we got answers to the questions we had. The only downside to our home selling so quickly is we won't be working with Cheryl anymore.

With Cheryl's help, my wife and I closed on a condo in August and then a house in November. Working with Cheryl was absolutely the best experience we've ever had in real estate. Her knowledge of the local real estate market, the local businesses, and really anything to do with the local community are unsurpassed. She listens to your needs, gives straight forward input, and is a savvy negotiator. She tirelessly supported our search for over a year while we figured out what housing option worked best for us. Her assistant, Chris was amazing as well. He researched everything and never failed to get answers in a timely fashion. We highly recommend Cheryl and her team for any real estate needs here in Steamboat and know that she will continue to impress and satisfy her clients.

Thank you Cheryl and Chris for helping my husband and I find and buy our dream condominium. We really appreciated how fast and easy you made the whole process for us while we were adjusting to a new town. We couldn’t be happier.
