What People Are Saying About Cheryl
If I could choose one word it would be “easy.” Working with Cheryl and her team made buying my first home a pleasant and fun experience. I knew I always had someone looking out for me. Cheryl’s team went above and beyond to help me find my dream home. I’m so grateful for Cheryl and her entire team.
I had the pleasure of working with Christian and Cheryl on a very quick cash purchase condo in Steamboat. From the first moment I met with Christian I new I was in capable hands. His tenacity in finding the perfect property knowing my personal likes and dislikes was impressive to say the least. He matched my laundry list of wishes to a property that could not have been more perfect. The negotiations were flawless and within 24 hours my offer was accepted. The three-week closing window was the smoothest of any property I've ever purchased especially impressive considering the tight time frame. This was all owing to the professionalism and knowledge of both Christian and Cheryl. They were meticulous and thorough. Coming from California, my standards were very high but never did I question my judgement in selecting Christian and Cheryl. They proved again and again what a good choice I made. In my opinion, the Best of the Best.
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.
Reed and Sandra Eike
Our thoughts on Cheryl: 1 - Cheryl knows the market. 2 - She and her team know how to market the property to reach the most potential buyers. 3 - Feedback on showings is timely, clear and concise. 4 - She works with you to get the most money for your home. 5 - She doesn’t panic or let you panic when the property doesn’t sell quickly. 6 - A high quality individual with a warm personality.
- There is a reason why she has so many listings and sells so many properties: She is the best!
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.
Blake & Erisa Ingerick
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.
Dan & Sally DelMar
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.
Both Cheryl & Chris, You two - are amazing. Your patience through our ups and downs...just Thank You! On the wall of our shop back in Oklahoma I had written " Eph 3:20 'Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, to him be all the glory...'" I didn't understand what God had in store for us. We just believed and followed. He brought us to Steamboat and into your office. And now two and a half years later...what we have is beyond anything we could have dreamed of. Thank You for taking the journey with us! You are so appreciated.
Mike & Judy Ward
I wanted to let you know what a positive experience that we had with Christian and Cheryl. The most impressive attribute for both was their responsiveness and clear lines of communication. I felt like we often had answers before a question was even asked. Thank you again for making what is often a very stressful situation enjoyable!
I first met Cheryl Foote in Dec., 2010. I was visiting over Christmas vacation. Because i loved Steamboat on that visit I decided to look at properties. Cheryl was the listing agent for a property I was interested in, so I called her. From the moment she started showing me properties I knew she was a great agent. I bought a condo at The Lodge in April, 2011. Cheryl has been a good friend over the years, so I called her when I was ready to sell the condo at The Lodge and purchase something larger. Cheryl successfully negotiated a deal on my condo at The Lodge, and she did an amazing job representing me on the purchase at The Meadows at Eagleridge. I would highly recommend Cheryl to any buyer or seller.
It was a smooth ride working with Cheryl Foote and her team. The sale and transition went quick and easy. Their communication was seamless (even while traveling). We would definitely recommend them if you are thinking about selling your house!
Cheryl and her team were fabulous to work with. They clearly knew the property very well, its history and previous sales. She also knew what I was looking for. It sounds simple, to match buyers and sellers, but I think Cheryl does it better than any other agent.
It was a pleasure to work with Cheryl Foote! Not many realtors were very easy to work with among the various properties and counties that I look at across the Rockies. Especially in that price range and with the hassles of working with us on a convoluted financial situation and extended timelines. Your listing was exceptional, the details about the land and the maps showing where it was and how to get to it was fantastic! Almost half the lots I looked at were almost impossible to get to without knowing the area and/or google earth which can be hard to use without cellphone service. You both are certainly highly recommended in our eyes and appreciate all the help along the way! Hope you both are well and hope to see you around town!
It was great working with Cheryl and her team. We believe she got a fair price for our home, and handled everything very well. Cheryl and Chris helped us find people to do needed repairs, made it very easy for us to sell, and we were thrilled with how fast it was. Cheryl and her team kept us informed about how everything was going. We definitely recommend Cheryl!
Joan and Erni Soper
Working with Cheryl and her team was a very positive experience. They sold my properties when other realtors had not been able to in the past, and they did it in record time. Cheryl is so successful because of her experience, knowledge, motivation, and drive-high energy. She is organized and doesn't waste time. No drama and is goal oriented. I was impressed with Cheryl and her team and how well organized they are. They work together flawlessly and were available to me 24/7 if I had questions I felt 100% confident, relaxed and knew I was in good hands with Cheryl and her team selling my properties.
It’s not just that Cheryl Foote and her team are consummate professionals…knowledgeable, responsive, problem-solving, and eager to guide you through one of the more stressful events in life…but they have an answer for every conceivable problem in the sales process. From staging and marketing your home to walking you through the closing, Cheryl is an invaluable resource. You want Cheryl on your side of the transaction, you need her on your side. Take the stress out of selling or buying a home and hire this incredible team!
Cheryl and her team are amazing and sold our home in March 2017 in a particularly challenging market environment. She was caring, trustworthy and possessed strong in-depth knowledge of the market. She and her team were very proactive in using a variety of capabilities to advertise our home to a large audience. She reached out several times to her colleagues representing other real estate agencies in the market space to not only “advertise” our home to them but to gain other marketing recommendations and perspectives. Based on her recommendations, she made our house look incredible and as a result it sold for a price that we were very pleased with. Her advice and counsel during the final negotiations were sound and extremely useful in the contracting process. She and her team were very proactive in guiding us through the closing process. We would not hesitate to recommend Cheryl to anyone for real estate needs in the Steamboat Springs market.
Tom & Linet Dudley
Cheryl Foote is the absolute BEST Agent in Steamboat Springs. We just closed on a home in Clark, CO and could not have been more pleased with our experience. The Entire Group at "Team Foote" were a pleasure to work with and each individually knew our case inside and out. From the initial contact to viewing homes to contract negotiations...even helping us get our utilities set up...they handle it all. Cheryl, Chris Babcock and David Wittlinger are hands down the BEST TEAM to work with if you are Buying or Selling your home in the Steamboat Springs area.
I have hired Cheryl Foote twice in Steamboat Springs, once to buy a home and once to sell. In both instances, she was absolutely fantastic. Selling my home was an emotional, high-stakes decision. I have never once questioned her judgement, ethics or decisions. Cheryl and Chris are true professionals and the value they bring is above and beyond what I expected. I would recommend Cheryl Foote to my own mother.
My husband, Tommy, and I recently purchased a second home in Steamboat Springs, CO. Cheryl Foote was the listing agent for one of the properties we were interested in buying, which is how we connected with her. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Cheryl and Chris who are both very knowledgeable and helpful during the entire home-buying process. Chris showed us several properties when we were visiting during a vacation and answered all of our questions about the area and the local market. The townhome we purchased happened to be one that Cheryl added to our list at the last minute, as it had just come on the market. Cheryl listened to our initial requests and clearly had an excellent idea of what type of property would suit our family’s needs. She and Chris guided us through the entire process and always had prompt answers to our questions. We highly recommend Cheryl and Chris to anyone interested in purchasing a home in Steamboat Springs!
Carrie & Tommy Hughes
By listening carefully and asking good questions, Cheryl figured out before we did what we were really looking for. Cheryl read between the lines of what I was saying to understand what was important to us: to find a place for our far-flung family to gather. Cheryl showed us a number of properties of various types and locations. When we didn't like something she would ask why- and listen. With Cheryl's guidance it did not take long to find the right property. Cheryl's team, including Chris Babcock, made the complexities of a long-distance purchase melt away. They were extremely helpful, efficient, and supportive. And Cheryl is fun to work with, too!
We want to thank Cheryl and her staff for helping us in our search for a home. We are very happy here after a careful search through many different single family homes, condos , and town homes. Cheryl worked very hard for us to help us determine what our most important requirements would be and we were allowed to take as much time as we needed to narrow our focus on choosing between the kinds of homes that we really were able to get excited about the possibility of owning. We are very pleased that , thanks to Cheryl, our search is over and we are in our new home.
It was a joy working with Cheryl and her team. She analyzed our townhouse and helped us make eye-catching improvements. Cheryl and her team were always responsive to our questions and did a great job marketing it. They also dealt with all the details for the closing and afterwards. It could not have been easier!
We recently worked with Cheryl and her team on the purchase of a vacation condominium in Steamboat Springs. The experience couldn’t have been better.
Our home is in San Diego and I started the search to purchase a vacation rental via the internet. I launched several queries at various realtor sites and Cheryl’s site was by far the most comprehensive. Her response was timely and there were many properties meeting our initial requirements. Cheryl contacted me quickly and provided me with very comprehensive data about properties, rental potential, location and information about Steamboat Springs in general.
We agreed that I would meet her in Steamboat to look at properties. When I arrived she had arranged for me to view all of the properties on the list and had cleared her schedule to concentrate on my needs. This was pretty amazing in itself given the fact that it was the week before the Christmas holiday. She had really listened to our requirements and there wasn’t a property that I viewed that we wouldn’t have been happy to own.
After ranking my favorites we began the offer process. Again, Cheryl and Chris were very knowledgeable, professional and timely in all of our interactions. They kept everything moving and did so quickly. She was able to provide me multiple contacts for everything that we needed to accomplish including inspection, insurance, etc.
Six weeks after the initial viewing of properties we completed our purchase. I’m happy to say that I was able to spend the first weekend of February at our new place and am thrilled with the purchase. Cheryl’s expertise made what could have been a very stressful purchase a pleasant experience. Her attention to detail and focus on the client is second to none.
We were intrigued by one of Cheryl's marketing pieces that really spoke to us as potential sellers. We weren't getting to Steamboat as often as when our children were young, and we wanted to work with a realtor who understood that we were interested in selling, but only under the right circumstances. Cheryl and Chris provided a sound plan for marketing our condo, including featuring it in online and print marketing materials that drove traffic, coupled with frequent updates on progress and interest from potential buyers. While selling was bittersweet, Cheryl and Chris made it a smooth process, even assisting with minor punch list items to ensure a quick resolution and timely close. We would highly recommend working with Cheryl and team for anyone's Steamboat residential property needs.
Melissa & Dave Marsden
Cheryl - thank you so much for your support in helping us finding the perfect Steamboat condo for us! You and your team were extremely knowledgeable about Steamboat and helped us narrow down the options to zero in on the best fit for us. I appreciate that you adjusted to our style and were there to support us as we were ready for the next step without pushing us before we were ready. Thanks again and happy to recommend you in the future.
Working with Cheryl Foote was a pleasure. She demonstrated great patience as we went through the process of selling a home in New Jersey, put our condo on the market in Steamboat Springs and purchased a new Townhouse in Steamboat. We visited many locations with Cheryl, some more than twice and through it all she provided humor, encouragement and support.
Cheryl worked with our Sotheby's agent in New Jersey as the buyers there backed out of their offer and we needed to put that home back on the market. This also caused the contingent offer we had on a place in Steamboat to fall through. While all of these activities were taking place Cheryl never took her eye off the ball and ultimately all obstacles were overcome.
We would be happy to work with Cheryl in the future.
Lou Tortora and Charyl Fines
In a word- OUTSTANDING! Cheryl set the tone early for our Client/ Realtor relationship with her totally positive and incredibly friendly attitude. Kandi had met her earlier on the golf course so it was not "a cold call". When I met her I was quickly convinced she was the person we wanted to represent us in the sale of our 40 year old home. I felt she was a real pro who would truly give us the needed support and would represent our best interests in all phases of the sales process. She proved to be exactly that. Her market knowledge was complete which was unbelievably valuable when it came to quality, location and price. She advised us to stay firm with the price we decided on and not give in to the whims of potential buyers. She also employed the talents of her support staff, particularly Chris Babcock who used his knowledge and skill with drone flyover videos to show the house and surrounding area which was very effective in certain circumstances. He also kept our home in "show ready" condition when we were not available. All in all, Cheryl displayed her professional abilities and added a sense of humor when needed. Both Kandi and I will recommend her and her team to friends that are looking for a realtor in Steamboat in the future.
Dave & Kandi Roy
I have worked for 3 Fortune 100 companies in my sales career and am always appreciative of individuals and organizations that take advantage of and leverage the tools available to them to give visibility to their companies and products. It may cost more to invest in these tools but it also ups the % of a quick sale. Cheryl and Chris have combined their skill sets to set the stage for a successful transaction from the beginning of the relationship. There is confidence in their approach and their personal follow-up gave me comfort.
Cheryl did a fabulous job getting our house sold in less than three months. I want to praise her efficiency and attentiveness, I could not have asked ask for more. I must say also that that Cheryl and Chris have tremendous flexibility in meeting the customer’s needs. Thank-You both!
Working with Cheryl and Chris was as close to worry free that a real estate transaction can be! No matter what questions I had or concerns I felt, they always were there for me. They are an excellent team.
Cheryl Foote and her team were amazing to work with. They took the stress out of helping us realize the dream of home ownership. I highly recommend Cheryl to anyone looking to purchase a home!
Scott & Shannon Parker
The experience was wonderful - Cheryl was nothing but exceptional toward myself and my sons. The process was smooth and all my questions were answered. She was most professional and I felt confident in leaving her with my closing, and I must say you couldn't have a better representative of Sotheby's.
Cheryl was instrumental not only navigating the purchase of our home in Steamboat Springs but at the same time collaborating with our selling agent in California. She kept both transactions in focus over the roughly 8 week process, from finding our dream home to closing escrow in California and Steamboat.
She was attentive right from the beginning when we one day during our summer vacation ventured into her office to inquire about the city, the region, the lifestyle and of course homes for sale in Steamboat Springs.
Cheryl and her team are a real asset for anyone looking to complete a home sale or purchase. Moreover, t's nice having an agent who takes time to address any questions or issues at any time before or after your move even if they seem mundane.
We wholeheartedly recommend Cheryl Foote for your real estate needs.
Juergen and Suzanne Kuhmann
I enjoyed working with Cheryl and crew. Cheryl is the most tenacious real estate person that I have ever met. Our process of getting to the right house in the right location took time; Cheryl was extremely patient and supportive as we figured out where we wanted to be in the “educational triangle”. Even our transaction wasn’t straight forward with the seller, but Cheryl was there at every corner to make sure that it got done and done right. She is a true professional. I would recommend her to anyone that is looking for a home in this area!
Mark A. Genereux
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Cheryl. She responds extremely rapidly to all correspondences and is the utmost professional. She was always honest and always gave excellent advice and guidance. Cheryl and her team make the entire selling experience stress free. I give her my highest recommendation. You will not be disappointed.
Cheryl was great to work with, she handled our sale efficiently, effectively, and with aplomb and style.
In the fast paced Steamboat market, there is no doubt Cheryl and her team are a big reason we were able to purchase our dream home. Cheryl seems to be connected to everyone in town and knows the market as well as anyone. We first saw the home on a Friday afternoon, the day after it went on the market. Cheryl scrambled to help us pull everything together so quickly that we were under contract within 24 hours. Everyone we worked with on her team was very professional and efficient, which made this daunting process as easy as possible. We would recommend Cheryl to anyone looking for real estate in the Steamboat area.
Rob & Molly Layton
Cheryl and team are very professional and the presentation of the property was simply awesome. It is the most professional marketing machine I come across in real estate, from strong digital content to virtual tours. Cheryl and team are truly trusted partners. They are factual, transparent and dependable.
Mikael and Ursula Hagstroem
Cheryl Foote and her team (shout out to Chris and Heather!) helped my husband and I in our condo search in Steamboat. She really listened to our requirements and made sure that the properties she showed us met our needs. More importantly, she was very flexible in showing us properties when we only had a small window while we were in Steamboat---11 properties in under 4 hours. When we began the contracting process, she kept us informed of the details and potential impacts of our decision-making. Her keen eye to detail kept the contract process on track and accordingly, we closed in October 2016. Loved working with Cheryl and her team---great group of folks who will help you make your dream happen!
We have hired Cheryl as our real estate agent primarily due to her reputation. We have not regretted it. Cheryl has put extra effort to promote our house as well as to help us present it properly. She was not too proud to admit when unsure and she would always recommend us professional that could help. Herself and Chris, her assistant, were on top of the communication with us and other parties. Even when our listing was coming to the end Cheryl was investing in marketing and did not give up and result was us selling the house.
Serg and Sunny Brstina
Working with Cheryl was a wonderful experience. She listened to what our needs and wants were and really helped us find the right home and we love it! I would highly recommend Cheryl to anyone moving into the area.
We selected Cheryl Foote to assist us with the search for our dream residence in Steamboat Springs. She was an excellent choice since she knows Steamboat exceptionally well and she showed us only the key properties that met our goals.
Cheryl also went above and beyond our expectations by soliciting input from multiple engineering companies to resolve an issue with our buyer and the Homeowners Association. She also helped us locate a property management company for which we are optimistic to meet our goals.
Dick and Margie Replogle
What a wonderfully enjoyable experience working with Cheryl! She made every aspect of our search for the right property in Steamboat a positive experience. Her knowledge of the area and the market is unsurpassed, but more importantly, her ability to really listen to our needs, coupled with her honest and straightforward suggestions, counsel and advice, left us confident we were in the best hands possible.
Despite her busy schedule, Cheryl always made us feel we were important and was very accommodating to our schedule and short window of time in Steamboat. We never felt rushed or pressured and were very appreciative of both her patience and her desire to find us the perfect place. She answered every question and she and her staff followed up with all the information we requested or needed to help us make the right decision. She made us feel as if we were her only client. Thanks to Cheryl, we have found our home away from home!
We are also incredibly grateful for all the guidance and expertise Cheryl provided as we navigated the purchase from our home back East. Cheryl and her team were never more than a phone call away and were invaluable in guiding us through the process. She truly went above and beyond! If you are looking to purchase or sell a home in Steamboat you could not find a better partner than Cheryl Foote and her team.
Kayne & Doug Darrell
I recently sold a home in Steamboat Springs and used Cheryl Foote as my Realtor. I would highly recommend Cheryl to anyone in need of a Realtor. She was on top of everything all the time. She made the selling of my home seamless. Her knowledge of the business made me feel comfortable and at ease. There were times when I had questions and she seemed to be able to address the questions I had without me even having to ask. She did a great job!!!
Working with Cheryl and her team was a terrific experience. We had been trying to sell our unit for years, with no success. We hired Cheryl and sold the condo very quickly. Cheryl assessed the condo and made a few inexpensive suggestions to update the condo to show better. Her communication was amazing. There were numerous showings and with each showing Cheryl provided detailed feedback. We really felt like we were a part of the process even though we live in Georgia. If you are looking for an agent that will work hard, communicate well, set realistic expectations and deliver, then Cheryl is the agent you are looking for!
Patricia & Bill Turpin
Summers in Steamboat can be deceivingly short so any delays could have
pushed my real estate sale into Winter which would not have benefited my situation.
Though I have real estate experience, selling my property "by owner", without
significant marketing capability didn't seem prudent.
I was familiar with Cheryl Foote as smart and affable long-time local and
saw her as a hardworking and successful real estate professional. Her
affiliation with Sotheby's assured a powerful marketing presence. A quick
phone call and Cheyl was on board.
Cheryl literally leapt into action and a contract was accepted within a few days
of listing. Cheryl, coordinating her Sotheby's team, was able to bring my
property to market faster than a goose could pass a cherry pit. I hadn't
appreciated that engaging Cheryl would also provide a high octane team.
From contract to closing every task was clearly defined and explained then
expediently and professionally performed. I couldn't ask for more than that.
Big thanks to Cheryl!
I originally emailed Cheryl for more information on a property in Steamboat. At the time I had been looking for a home for several years and had used other agents in several mountain resorts, with no luck. Soon after Cheryl received my email she called me to better understand what type of property we were looking for. That is when I was introduced to this methodical and high energy agent. Most impressive was her local real estate knowledge, organizational skills and 24/7 attitude combined with an outgoing friendly personality. In no time she helped us find, negotiate, and close on a wonderful home. After signing the contract on the house, we left Colorado. Cheryl kept us up to date on the progress of the closing and was quick to respond to all questions we had. She immediately took care of everything that came up in the process and truly went the extra mile for us. She lined up the house inspector, the roof inspector, a lawyer, a contractor for estimates on needed repairs and worked closely with the title agent all while we were in Alaska. We closed in three weeks.
It is said that if you have a good experience you will only tell a few people. We would like to change that and love everyone to know about the wonderful experience working with Cheryl in our search to find the right property in Steamboat.
Right from the start we knew we were in good hands. Cheryl's knowledge of the market, personable approach and overall hustle and follow up really stand out. Every question we had she would work her phone and have the answer so we were always making informed decisions.
One thing we really appreciated was how Cheryl was alway listening. This was evident when we were at a property and clearly talking ourselves into essentially settling as it wasn't completely ideal for us while Cheryl sat back, observed and then asked a few questions that helped us ultimately purchase the right place for us. She could have easily just talked us into the other place but was more than willing to extend the time.
As we were negotiating our contract we wanted to access the place several times and Cheryl ran over to meet us every time. She also set up a meeting with a local service so we could get information on an addition we were interested in making.
We are in sales and always find ourselves critical of services we receive and couldn't have had a better experience working with Cheryl!
Troy & Danielle
Working with Cheryl made my condo purchase easy and worry free. I never felt rushed by her when I was initially looking at properties and never felt pressured to buy anything, even after the many hours she spent with me. She is very knowledgeable about the area and learned quickly what is was that I was looking for in a property. In the end, I made an offer on a property sight unseen due to the trust I had in her. She actually took the stress out of the purchase and made it fun! It was a pleasure working with Cheryl and her entire team and would highly recommend her if you are thinking of buying a property in the area.
My husband and I just sold our condo at The Lodge at Steamboat after owning it for 25 years. It was a hard decision to make as we loved having the condo and we had many wonderful memories of our times up there. We chose Cheryl Foote as our realtor because of her reputation and because she had been sending us post cards and updates on the market up there for a while. We were very happy with her! She provided spot-on advice about pricing our unit and good suggestions for staging and preparing our condo for sale - what to update and what didn't need to be changed. She marketed it well and, soon, we had an offer. Negotiations went well and we were under contract. All the paperwork was handled well - no snafus during inspection or pending stages and the closing went on without a hitch.
We would highly recommend Cheryl! She was very professional, easy to work with, she listened to us and she always did for us what she promised she'd do... she worked hard for us.

It was a smooth ride working with Cheryl Foote and her team. The sale and transition went quick and easy. Their communication was seamless (even while traveling). We would definitely recommend them if you are thinking about selling your house!
I had been interested in trying to find a place in Steamboat for quite some time but until recently it just wasn't a possibility. I finally got serious about trying to make something happen but was overwhelmed when I began to research for a buyers agent to help me find something. I had only bought my first house three years prior and was still pretty green when it came to real estate. I reached out to a friend who was my buyers agent on my first house in my hometown to see if she knew anybody in Steamboat. She didn't, but after her doing some research recommended I get in touch with Cheryl. A brief time later after a phone conversation with Cheryl I knew I had the right person! Shortly after my trip to Steamboat we were under contract for an absolutely perfect raw land lot that will soon have my home on it. I didn't know the first thing about purchasing land and Cheryl made sure to guide me through everything and made it super easy. We had a lot of different variables that came up with the land as it had an easement through the neighboring lot but Cheryl helped me steer through everything with ease and made sure it was all perfect for the closing. Cheryl is absolutely awesome and was a pleasure to work with! My schedule keeps me phone and email unavailable for large portions of the day and Cheryl and her assistant Chris were beyond accommodating and always kept me informed with everything and answered my many questions with promptness. Many times I would only have a short window of time for a phone call and in the few times I didn't reach Cheryl, Chris would be calling me back before I could even finish my voicemail asking what he could help me with and shortly then handing me off to Cheryl. I would 100 percent recommend Cheryl with anything real estate related and can't thank her enough for all her hard work making sure I got my property in Steamboat.

We meet Cheryl, almost 5 years ago, when she was representing a parcel of land that was going to auction.. The day the land was going to be auctioned off we collaborated with Cheryl, made an offer, and managed to usurp the property an hour prior to the auction. A year or so ago, we realized Steamboat was not going to be where we retired. So we put the land back on the market at a time when land want really selling in that area.. Through Cheryl's knowledge and advice we recently sold the property. I have to give Cheryl major kudos as it wasn't an easy situation.. She was always very responsive, even while being on a family vacation in a foreign country! Her assistant Chris was always available, and truly was a pleasure to work with. They make a stellar team.. Many thanks to both of you!!
I found Cheryl by reading her reviews on Zillow and selected her based on her sales volume. I was slightly concerned that she would be too busy for us but that was absolutely not the case as she was very responsive and her assistant Chris was also able to answer questions for us. Within in a day of our initial contact she visited our property, offered her professional opinion on what improvements we needed to make and a few days later our condo was on the market. She sent us an impressive marketing plan that detailed how our property would be introduced to potential buyers and 30 days later we were under contract. We are now working with Cheryl to find a new place in Steamboat. She is extremely knowledgeable on the market and was helped us quickly find exactly what we were looking for. I highly recommend Cheryl whether you are looking to buy or sell in the Steamboat market.
Dave and Laura Dunham
Cheryl was great to work with. We were purchasing a vacation home and therefore were not located in Steamboat. Cheryl is very responsive and made it easy to get through the purchasing process from afar.
When I first talked to Cheryl my family wasn't entirely sure that we were going to move to Steamboat and out of curiosity I called about a house that I had seen for sale on Zillow's website. When Cheryl called me we spoke for awhile and eventually arranged to meet. Cheryl spent an entire day with me showing me numerous houses in several neighborhoods around the Steamboat area all while knowing that we hadn't made a firm decision to move. I really enjoyed exploring the area with Cheryl. She happily answered all of my questions and she also shared a lot of helpful information about relocating to Steamboat. After seeing numerous houses we decided to put an offer on the house that I had originally called about. The transaction was somewhat complicated and there were many pieces that needed to come together to make it work for us. Cheryl helped us navigate through the process and we are happy to say we'll be moving to Steamboat soon. We would recommend Cheryl to anyone wanting to purchase property in Steamboat.
Quincee & Buz
With the sale of my vacation property, I found Cheryl and her backup team to be the kind of "remote" professionals I needed. Executing a vacation condo sale from two time zones away can be challenging, especially when it comes to pricing strategy, market timing, and the need for decisive action. I felt comfortable with Cheryl's local expertise, her marketing efforts, and her counsel along the way. Most important - when it came to an offer and the sometimes frenetic pace of closing - I was extremely happy with her extended team of local resources and virtual tools. I executed a virtual closing on time with all necessary paperwork provided by my support team. A rare and welcome example of expertise and quality customer service!
Jim Deveau, Former owner at the Steamboat Grand
We are writing to thank you for selling what was our Condo, in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. For our first time selling property in the USA we wanted somebody knowledgeable, honest, and professional to guide us through the process. You were all that and more! Not only did you sell our Condo very quickly, you kept in touch with us about our search for our new Condo we purchased in Park City at the same time, even putting us in contact with your colleagues in the Park City.
Our Condo was marketed well and thanks to you having been in this area for a long time and having an existing list of potential buyers, resulted in plenty of visitors. We appreciated being kept informed of discussions with interested buyers and especially grateful to you communicating to us on many odd out of work time hours due to me living in Australia. We have no hesitation in recommending you to our friends and family and anyone in need of your professional services. You were amazing.
When considering buying or selling property, one often confronts the looming questions of what Realtor to use or if they will benefit you. There are probably many questions you have and some you don’t know you should have. Who do you trust to get you through a stressful time? If you want an advocate, a professional company that will highlight the best things about your property, and an assistant who is organized and responsive, look no further that Cheryl Foote and her assistant Chris at Steamboat Sotheby’s. Cheryl Foote has accomplished several recent transactions that are life changing in dramatically positive ways. We knew she was dedicated to our interests when she had a survey completed because she knew we desired a fence. Again, when the radon results came back high, she requested a mitigation system be installed without any direction from us. It is such a great feeling to have an advocate working for you during a stressful time. I find Cheryl to be a person who is ethical, easy to connect with, thoroughly knowledgeable, responsive and creative. We successfully sold our home and bought another, and many times we thought how lucky we were to have Cheryl working for us. I plan on more transactions with her and her team in the future.
Ann Collings & Brian Bradbury
Working with Cheryl on the purchase of our home in Steamboat has been an absolute pleasure. I am a Real Estate Broker in the Denver area and when my husband and I decided to buy a home in Steamboat I decided to find an Agent who has local knowledge of the area to partner up with. Working with Cheryl is one of the best things my husband and I could have done. Cheryl replied quickly to all our questions and helped make the process incredibly smooth. Cheryl is very knowledgeable of all things “Steamboat”, very professional and so easy to work with. Her colleague Chris was also so helpful and it was great to have access to both Cheryl and Chris’s expertise. I will definitely recommend Cheryl to anyone I know that is thinking of buying property in the Steamboat Springs area.
April and Andrew Kempen
I have bought over fourteen properties and Cheryl was by far the best Realtor I have ever worked with. Having never purchased a condo in Colorado, it was important for me to work with someone that could explain the details that I was custom to knowing. She and her staff continually went beyond my expectations. Property management everywhere we went showed her respect, and for good reason....She is The Realtor in Steamboat. Thanks Cheryl and Chris (Cheryl's right hand man) for all that you did!
Cheryl and her team were very accessible and kept right on top of everything through to the closing. We appreciated it. Thanks!!
I have worked with Cheryl on three different properties over the past 5 years, she has always been honest and fair in all of my dealings with her. She and her staff have responded quickly and responsibly to my offers and to the clients interested in my properties. I will continue to use her skills and abilities to get things done. I would (and have) recommend her to my friends, family and acquaintances. Cheryl can make it happen!
We have never met Cheryl or Chris. We contacted them to sell our condo at Timber Run because Cheryl has kept us up to date with Steamboat Springs and the market conditions for the last few years. No other realtor contacted us or offered their services. They are very professional and we agreed to all the conditions of sale immediately. There was no pressure and during negotiations we reached a favorable agreement. We can easily recommend Cheryl to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in Steamboat Springs.
Don and Sherry
Hmmm, where to start. I must admit that when we decided to buy a condo in Steamboat (this Dec 2015) , I contacted Cheryl without reading any of the testimonials about her and wow, what a dumb luck thing. From the first initial email requesting her to contact us, we got a quick call back from Chery and after a brief conversation about what we were looking for, within minutes (literally) she sent us prospective properties in the price range we were looking. Since we have been to Steamboat many times over the years and were pretty familiar with the mountain and town, it did not take long to decide on a condo in the Timber Run condo complex and Chery did a fantastic job of negotiating an equitable sale price and we had a contract on it in just a couple of days or so (so it seems). It was just what we were looking for.
Over the course of the next few days from the contract stage, Cheryl got us all the Information we needed to proceed with the purchase inclusive of the bank loan originator contact (Melanie who was also fantastic to work with), property inspection contacts, utility company contacts, condo rental information for the past year, and the Timber Run property manager Becky who was also great in answering our questions about the complex as well as blocking off the unit for our stay during the week we were there for closing. Also a special thank you to Chris from Cheryl’s office who went over to the Condo and took many many pictures of the unit that were not posted in the condo listing as well as getting us other requested information associated with the closing process.
Not only is Cheryl a delightful person to work with, as others have also stated, she knows the Steamboat market and went what I consider above and beyond to make our condo buying experience a pleasant stress free experience. I swear at times when I would email or call Cheryl, I got the feeling she was just sitting there in her office tapping her fingers on her desk waiting for me to contact her. She is just that fast in responding and to this day, If we have a question as to who to contact about something it is not long before she sends it (she knows everyone in town). If you are thinking about buying or selling in Steamboat, call Cheryl, you will not be disappointed!!!!
Jim and Vicky from Montgomery Texas
Working with Cheryl on the purchase of our townhome on Delta Queen was a wonderful experience from the very beginning when we first met virtually to pull together a list of homes to see, to the very end at closing. Cheryl was very intuitive about what we were looking for. Everything was organized and all mapped out for us and because of this and the homework she did to prepare, our visit to look at homes was extremely productive and efficient. Cheryl and her Assistant Chris have warm and inviting personalities that make it easy to work with them. Making an offer on a house always creates a lot of anxiety, but the professionalism and knowledge Cheryl provided greatly reduced that anxiety. Joe and I totally appreciated the prompt, knowledgeable and thorough reply to our emails and phone calls. We also appreciated the comradery that Cheryl and Chris had in working with the listing agent. All of this made us feel very comfortable with the sellers, and it wasn’t a buyer vs. seller “put on the boxing gloves” type of deal; Quite the contrary. We have nothing but positive feelings from our experience in working with Cheryl to purchase our home in “the boat”, and we would highly recommend Cheryl Foote to anyone.
Cheryl and her assistant Chris Babcock helped us sell our condo in Steamboat Springs, CO. They were both very knowledgeable, professional and helpful far and beyond what is normally expected from a real estate agent. Selling of the condo was a perfectly smooth and enjoyable process, without any stress. Should a new need to buy or sell a home arise, we will hire Cheryl and Chris again and we would recommend them to a friend.
Working with Cheryl was a pleasure. My circumstances are “unique” which required some unique negotiations – none of which I expected to come to fruition – but based on Cheryl’s efforts, a deal was in fact negotiated, amended during the process, and taken all the way through the closing - and my family is now living in the wonderful home. I was very impressed with how she handled the negotiations and the process overall. She was very attentive, diligent, and extremely effective in negotiating my interests. She has earned my respect and thanks – as my family loves the home and could not be happier with all that has transpired to get us there!
I absolutely loved working with Cheryl, she knows the market, works efficiently, and was quick and responsive! Very professional and easy to work with, got the deal done with no problems.
Cheryl was an exceptional realtor. She and her team helped my wife and me in our search for a lot in Steamboat to build our dream house. While my wife and I have been to Steamboat several times, she was able to show us some lots in new and up and coming neighborhoods that we didn't know about. Within 24 hours we had our dream lot that overlooks the ski resort under contract. I would highly recommend Cheryl and her team if you're looking for a property in the Steamboat Springs area!
When the time came to sell our Stagecoach home, Cheryl was our choice. Having seen her name on several properties in the area, we gave her a call and were not let down. Her professionalism was impeccable. From the pictures of the house, to the advertisements, to the communication, both she and Chris impressed us. All went very smoothly and Cheryl's knowledge base of the area, diligence, and attention to detail made all transactions worry free.Thank you both for leading us through this step in our lives and making it seamless.
Cathy and Diego Girard
Working with Cheryl was such a blessing. If we had not found her to represent us, we never would be in our new home. Cheryl knew that we wanted to upgrade from our condo to one particular small neighborhood in Steamboat. Over the last couple years, every time a property would come on the market in that neighborhood, she would keep us informed. Finally, the perfect house went up for sale at the perfect time, and Cheryl helped us get our condo under contract in just two weeks. Because of her close relationships with everyone in the real estate business in Steamboat, she was able to get the sellers of the home that we wanted to buy to accept our contingency offer. In the end, our condo sold on a Friday and we bought the new house on a Monday. We’ve upgraded in size and location and couldn’t be happier with our purchase. Cheryl is a top professional who is always on the ball, answering our questions immediately, all the time. Should we ever upgrade again in the future, we’ll work with Cheryl again without question.
Cheryl Foote is an energetic agent that always exceeded my high expectations. Cheryl and her teammate Chris always kept me informed of showings and feedback from those showings. Their use of all forms of social and electronic media kept my property in front of an enormous amount of buyers. Cheryl’s knowledge of the market and her awesome attitude makes her the best choice for an expert agent in Steamboat Springs. Thanks for all you did.
As a first time home buyer in Steamboat Springs, working with Cheryl Foote and her team was a very a pleasant experience. Her expertise in the real estate market helped to guide me in the correct direction for selecting a property that met my objectives. In considering a property that would satisfy my living needs, investment needs, and long term goals, Cheryl most definitely met every expectation I had. The priority and urgency Cheryl and her team place on locating potential properties for the client are well noted, and I plan to have the Cheryl Foot Team at Sotheby's represent me in the future.
As life happens, my family did end up moving to Steamboat. One of the most seamless parts of the transition was having Cheryl as our agent. Her knowledge and experience in the area were both a huge asset in locating, offering and negotiating the purchase of our home. We depended on her to oversee every part of the purchase since we were buying from out of state. She managed inspections, appointments, counters, and loans without issue. Not only did she execute the sale flawlessly, but she was available for follow up afterwards. Cheryl went above and beyond the role of agent with her time and efforts to ensure a smooth transition for our family. Both her and Chris helped us with enrolling in schools, hooking up utilities and even inviting us into the community through social events. This is not your average agent, but someone truly dedicated to her work and committed to her clients.
Tiprin Mandalay Follett
Thank you for representing us throughout the sale process of our West condo. We especially appreciate the sound strategies you employed to establish the listing price, the extensive web advertising presence used to market our unit locally, nationally, and internationally, and the timely showing feedback we received. You and your assistant, Chris, were always available and responsive to answer our questions and to offer professional advice. We will highly recommend you to anyone seeking an energetic, highly competent, professional realtor in the Steamboat area.
Gary and Diane Kurek
Working with Cheryl to find our family's condo was a great experience. Her knowledge of locations all around Steamboat helped us pinpoint the perfect condo for our family. Cheryl helped make our long time dream of owning a place in the mountains a reality. We will pass her name on to all of our friends and family who might be looking for places in Steamboat.
Brent and Janel Neuenschwander
It was an absolute pleasure working with Cheryl Foote. Being new to the area, We were unfamiliar with all the areas of Steamboat and didn't know where to start. Cheryl is incredibly knowledgeable and was a fantastic resource for us in our search. We were all over the map this summer. We looked at condos, townhomes, duplexes and single family homes. Not once, did we ever feel rushed or pressured to buy. Cheryl was incredibly patient with us but was always there when we needed her. Moreover, her easy-going and relaxed personality made house shopping fun. If you're in the market for a entry-level condo, a multi-million dollar Steamboat home, or anything in between, I could not recommend Cheryl Foote more highly.
A big thank you to the best realtor and advisor in Steamboat Springs, Cheryl Foote. A job well done!
As a first time home-owner I was a little nervous during the process, but Cheryl made it exciting and it was a great experience. She walked me through the process every step of the way, never leaving out any detail. Am very thankful for her support and understanding and I am very happy with my new home.
It was great working with Cheryl Foote and her assistant Chris Babcock during the sale of our condo in Steamboat Springs, CO. Cheryl made the transaction happen and everything went smoothly. I recommend Cheryl for all your Real Estate needs in and around Steamboat Springs, CO.
Bill and Velva Strand
After several visits to Steamboat Springs and extensive review of properties with Cheryl, we found the perfect property for me! Her desire and ability to understand my needs, her knowledge in all facets of the real estate market, her availability and the level of concern and attention to all the details every step of the way, made this the smoothest and most satisfying real estate transaction in which I have ever been involved! She and her assistant, Chris Babcock, are truly a great team!
My husband and I have lived in the Yampa Valley for 12 years and over this time we have become friends with many real-estate agents here in the valley. However, when we first met Cheryl there was an energy and drive about her that we both instantly connected with. We knew our situation would be tricky and only the best of the best could actually make it happen. That is exactly what Cheryl and her team did! We needed to sell our condo in order to buy a home in Steamboat, which has been a dream of ours for years. Within 45 days our condo was under contract. A week after our condo was under contract we were under contract on a single family home in Steamboat’s highly sought after Fairview neighborhood. We truly believe that had it not been for Cheryl we would not be living our dream! A big thank you to Cheryl and Chris you are in ours eyes the best Steamboat has to offer and would recommend your services to anyone.
Meghan & Joe Schuetz
Cheryl Foote is an all around Real Estate professional, who listed and sold our condominium this year, She started with a very thorough market analysis, created a detailed marketing plan and worked until the property was sold. She and her marketing team are professional, personable, and detail oriented. She took care of all the minor details from start to finish, (and especially all the little things that can crop up at, and near the closing). We will definitely use her again when the time comes and highly recommend her as your trusted real estate professional. Thank you Cheryl!
Mike & Joan K.
Cheryl was the perfect person to help us with our first home purchase. She was very patient and never laughed at our silly first time home buyer questions. She was very responsive, diligent and timely throughout the whole process. Seeing as I was out of state throughout most of the time we were under contract, she put my mind at ease that everything was being taken care of. I would recommend Cheryl to friends and family!
We enjoyed working with Cheryl Foote of Steamboat Sotheby's International Realty on the sale of our Condo in Steamboat Springs. She is very knowledgeable about the market. Phone calls and emails were responded to promptly with concise answers to our questions. I would recommend Cheryl to anybody who is looking to buy or sell in Steamboat Springs. Also, Chris Babcock, who works with Cheryl, also was very helpful whenever called upon.
George & Kathy Turner
We have known Cheryl for over 7 years. She has seen us through 2 purchases and a sale. To say that my husband and I were all over the board on what we wanted for the second purchase would be an understatement. Cheryl has incredible knowledge of the area’s markets, tons of patience, and a straightforward no nonsense approach to sales and purchases. She thinks of everything and make the process seem less scary. We loved working with her and would highly recommend her to anyone we know!
Carla & Joe
I give Cheryl Foote 5 stars across the board! My husband and I owned property in Steamboat. He passed away and the property became a hardship. I had listed locally with realtors for 3 years and nothing minimal communication no effort toward selling my property for me 1 phone call in 6 months. I shared my story with Cheryl and she did it ! She communicates , she is professional, understands her clients needs and provides every detail in the process to the closing! If you want it sold-let the professionals do it. Cheryl Foote is Awesome!! feel free to contact me for my story!
Cheryl listened to what my priorities were in the home buying process and help me narrow down properties that fit my needs long before we started looking. Her knowledge of the market and they way HOA's work was extremely valuable. She helped me find financing and was always available to discuss my concerns. Cheryl is organized, prompt and advocated for me as a buyer. I will definitely work with her in the future and highly recommend her to my friends.
Cheryl is the best! I have used Cheryl to both buy and sell 5 different properties over the past 12 years and she has done an Amazing job every single time. She knows everything about this market which really helps with valuation as well as handling every detail of the transaction process. She also has great relationships with the other realtors in town which is a huge advantage when selling because she spreads the word right away and also has those contacts when searching for a new place to buy. She is very driven and focused and you can be confident she is always working for you. If you are looking for a realtor in Steamboat Springs, Cheryl is one of the best out there.
While considering a job opportunity in Steamboat, we had the good fortune of working with Chris and Cheryl. Our family had considerable challenges in making the decision to move from California since we had never been to Steamboat, but Chris and Cheryl were available night and day to help us through. Their knowledge, personal attention, quick response and detailed information provided us with the guidance we needed to decide whether or not we could relocate three kids and a horse to a whole new community. Cheryl was thoroughly engaged in all aspects of our house hunt, from taxes to schools. Her expertise as a realtor made us confident we would be well-represented in buying property in an area unfamiliar to us. Although we weren't first time home buyers, we had never dealt with either the climate considerations or the state-specific laws of Colorado. Cheryl's patient explanations of everything we needed to know helped to put us at ease. Her ability to objectively describe life in Steamboat made her invaluable to us. Chris followed through quickly on all of our many requests. Together, the two of them provided us with a real sense of accuracy, reliability and professional courtesy that is hard to find and a pleasure to work with.
Cheryl Foote was our agent on our recent purchase of a vacation home in Steamboat Springs. What we were looking for wasn't easy to find, but Cheryl was tireless, upbeat, energetic, practical and full of great local knowledge and insights to help us narrow down our search. She is so efficient and on top of things -- if we had a question she either knew the answer, or immediately texted her amazing assistant, Chris, and in no time we had subdivision plats, tax and ownership records, whatever would help. We felt so confident that we were getting all the information we needed to make the right decision. Once under contract, her extensive contacts made easy work of all our financing, inspection and remediation issues. If you are looking to sell or buy in the greater Steamboat area, we enthusiastically recommend her.
Marc Sheridan & Melissa King
I want to thank Cheryl again for all her help and expertise. She kept us informed and updated during and prior to the sale of our property. We had a few hurdles that she handled professionally and could explain the processes to us. We appreciated her patience and candor.
I recently sold my home in Steamboat Springs. My realtor was Cheryl Foote, and I can't thank her enough for helping me with the sale. To fully appreciate Cheryl's success in getting the house sold, I need to first explain that my home had many challenges. It was a side by side duplex with one unfinished unit. I knew from the start that it would take a special buyer to appreciate my house and the wonderful opportunities it presented for the right person. Cheryl was able to guide me through the process, including giving me suggestions on what needed to be done before the first open house and she pointing me in the right direction to get answers to zoning questions.
Also, I especially appreciated her encouragement along the way. Additionally, I would like to thank Cheryl's assistant Chris Babcock for his help with the sale. I definitely recommend Cheryl to anyone that is looking to sell or buy property in Steamboat Springs or Routt County.
After years of unsuccessful attempts at selling my Steamboat Springs condo, finding Cheryl proved to be the missing link. Working with her was a great experience and I cannot say enough good things about her. She helped me through the challenging and laborious short sale process with knowledge and professionalism, and was always on top of every twist and turn, especially when things did not go as expected. But most importantly, Cheryl’s professional and comprehensive knowledge of the real estate industry, combined with her straight forward and trustworthy personality made me feel at ease even during the most difficult times in the process. Her hard work and dedication to getting the condo sold never wavered. She was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend Cheryl Foote, without hesitation, for her expertise, experience, and integrity.
I have found working with Cheryl Foote and her assistant Chris Babcock to sell our rental property was a seemless and easy process. Initially, Chris took professional photographs of our rental unit and was able to show the property in the best light possible. I believe that the photos were solely responsible for the large amount of internet traffic that our listing enjoyed. When there were a few hick-ups with the transaction, Cheryl readily found a solution and immediately resolved the problem. Cheryl was always available to take our phone calls and responded quickly to texts and emails. In short, she was a wonderful broker to work with and my husband and i would highly recommend Cheryl and Chris for your next transaction!
Yuri & Leslie Goldstein
Cheryl was especially professional and helpful. She was quick to help out when the unit was not cleared out as it should have been and came up with a solution in short order. Appreciated all her help.
I recently listed and sold two properties in Steamboat Springs. I was very fortunate to have Cheryl Foote as my agent for both transactions. Her professionalism and attention to detail are unsurpassed. She made me feel like I was top priority and always had time for my questions and concerns, despite the demands of her busy schedule. Cheryl exudes enthusiasm and energy in everything she does and the results are proof. Her attitude towards life, people and the Yampa Valley is positively beautiful and genuine. What else can I say? If I was looking to buy or sell another property in Steamboat Springs, I would seek out Cheryl Foote.
Cheryl was the best. She was very professional, very friendly, always happy and so easy to talk to. She took my husband and I to see lots of homes in just two days. My husband and I did not make a decisions at that time and had to return to Houston. Cheryl kept us informed of any houses for sale that she thought would be suitable for us and even took our daughter, Lisa, and her friends to look at some of these houses. Our daughter had just started college in Steamboat and Cheryl was very willing to help Lisa settle in and to help if she had any problems. Cheryl was very well informed about each house and the areas we looked at and she always had an answer to any of our questions. When we decided on our home to buy she did all the necessary work in a very timely manner and when we closed on our house it was easy. I would definitely recommend Cheryl to anyone who is looking for a Realtor in Steamboat and I think we have made a new friend. Cant wait to catch up next time we are in Steamboat.
It was great working with someone who has such a vast knowledge of our community and local real estate. She was always available for those little questions and gems of advice. Her passion and drive for slingin local real estate is up there with the best! You guys rock.
Cheryl is one of the brightest , kindest realtors I know and we were proud to have her represent us. We always felt taken care of and her guidance was extremely appreciated during the listing time but mostly during the contract period. She was always available and went above and beyond to help us through. We would highly recommend Cheryl!
Richard and Kathy Arce
Working with Cheryl Foote and her team at Sotheby's in Steamboat Springs was probably the best experience I have ever had in selling real estate. From listing to closing, every detail was handled quickly, professionally, and always with a lot of communication. She is experienced, very energetic, and has a great team to handle details. She helped us time the market well, so that when we decided to finally list, the property was under contract in a couple of weeks at a satisfactory price to us! I would not hesitate to work with Cheryl Foote again, she is a real pro ..
Working with Cheryl Foote was an absolute pleasure. Cheryl sold my condo in seven days. She is a women true to her word. She took professional photos of my condo, made suggestions to enhance the look of the condo, advertised and priced the condo on target. Cheryl answered all my questions graciously and professionally right through my closing and sale. Doing business with Cheryl was a delight.
My wife and I have bought, sold, and rented many homes over the years and have dealt with every kind of realtor imaginable - - - literally, the good, the bad, and the really ugly! We can tell you with absolute certitude that Cheryl is the finest real estate professional we have ever dealt with. And here’s why:
- Cheryl really knows the Steamboat and Routt County real estate market. She is a professional, full-time agent working 200% for her client.
- She does her homework. The first time we met her, we were so impressed with her knowledge of our neighborhood, the long and short-term sales trends, the history and benefits of living in our neighborhood, etc. Not just the normal realtor stuff; Cheryl really knew what she was talking about. The consummate professional.
- We had done some independent analysis to estimate what our home ‘should’ sell for and Cheryl’s numbers were spot on and actually, a bit better.
- Cheryl was totally enthusiastic about the sales potential of our home and was always there when we had questions.
- She was realistic about what buyers would love about the house and also (and most importantly) what would turn them off, as well as providing recommendations to mitigate any potential issues/concerns.
- She is very aggressive/proactive and took the lead on everything to make our lives easier during this very stressful time. Her communication really helped us relax during the entire sales process.
- Cheryl had loads of (serious!) potential buyers coming through the home as soon as we put it on the market. She also made sure that all the real estate agents in town were invited to walk through.
- The photographs of the home were done by a skilled photographer who is an expert in architectural and real estate photography. No blurry iPhone images taken by some amateur. Therefore, the sales brochures, web presence, newspaper and magazine ads, etc. were incredibly professional and stunning.
- Cheryl leads a superb team who are equally dedicated to selling your home. Of special note is Chris Babcock who was extremely professional and polite, always followed up, offered valuable advice and encouragement, and was a genuine pleasure to work with.
- How did we hear about Cheryl? Our neighbor had Cheryl sell her home and had nothing but praise for her. BTW, Cheryl sold my neighbor’s home in 3 days!
Finally, we cannot say enough about the professionalism and dedication of Cheryl and her team. They were a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend them. Oh, and did we mention that she sold our home in 4 days; with multiple competing offers; for full price!! Not bad! Nice work, Cheryl. Thank you for everything.

Cheryl is such a pleasure to work with we enjoyed the whole experience tremendously. She made the home buying experience fun and we actually spent most of our vacation meeting with her. We plan to visit her every time we come to steamboat to check on her and her family. She responded immediately with great advice and decorator tips as well anytime we called or text. Thanks Cheryl!

Cheryl was great to work with. She spent two days driving us around the mountain area to check out units similar to the one we wanted and eventually bought. Even though she represented the seller we felt we could trust her opinion regarding the different units we viewed. If we are ever in the market to buy or sell again in Steamboat we will be calling Cheryl.
Cheryl did a great job in getting our home sold. She is knowledgeable in the local market, professional, energetic and worked hard at making sure our needs were met. I would definitely refer her to others looking for a top notch Realtor.

We recently purchased a house in Steamboat Springs with the help of my Realtor, Cheryl Foote, and her Assistant, Chris Babcock. It had always been a dream of mine to own a house in Steamboat Springs. I took a leap of faith on my last trip in April, 2014 and contacted Chris. He immediately put me in touch with Cheryl. Within 24 hours Cheryl was able to identify what I actually wanted, even when I didn't know myself.
She quickly could see that I was more interested in a townhome than a condominium. She narrowed down the market efficiently and was able to show me some quality properties in a very short time. Her knowledge of the steamboat market and availability was extremely helpful. She then repeated the process with my husband over the next two days because he had been unable to attend some of our first showings. This meant that she was essentially repeating what she had already done with me. I'm sure that is a frustrating process for a Realtor, but she was patient with our needs. The rest of our business transaction was done long distance. Over the next two months we reevaluated the properties and reevaluated the market for any new offerings. By the time we made an offer on a listing we were quite comfortable that it was the house we wanted. Cheryl was able to guide us through the negotiations with sage advice as to what I should offer in order to achieve the acquisition of the home. She had to go the extra distance as I was out of town through some of the process. She continued to visit the property and send me video updates so that I could adequately evaluate the inspection report and the inspection objections. It turned out to be a complicated transaction but Cheryl was extremely patient and also very encouraging. There were times when I truly wondered if we were headed in the right direction,but Cheryl was able to focus our energy and objectives. We finally closed on the house and I'm very excited about what the future brings. None of this would have been possible if it had not been for Cheryl's help, expertise, and encouragement.

It was a pleasure working with Cheryl. She was professional and prompt, handling everything beyond my expectations. I dealt with her long-distance and never met her face to face until closing. It was easy and convenient. She understood the issues regarding second residence and rental properties, knew the market in Steamboat well, dealt with property managers and others for me, saving me tremendous time and effort. She also provided weekly updates, market information, direction and insider knowledge that was invaluable. I was very pleased with Cheryl and her staff. The entire process was effortless for me. I highly recommend her.
It was a pleasure working with Cheryl. She is thorough, prompt, goes out of her way to be helpful, and is obviously a very knowledgeable, professional real estate agent. It's nice to have someone that answers e-mails, phone messages, and lots of questions immediately. She is good about explaining things, providing names and resources for getting information needed to make the close as painless as possible. I enjoyed working with her and highly recommend her.
Cheryl can be described in one word....."Awesome"!
She listened to what we were looking for and instinctively knew the best properties to show us. She is tenacious (in a good way!) and made my wife and family totally at ease in the process. Cheryl truly cares about you and about doing the best job for you. We highly recommend her.

We were very fortunate to have had Cheryl Foote as our realtor. She was very professional and did a fantastic job of marketing our home. She kept us informed weekly as to comments and action with our home and gave us good advice when needed. Cheryl was a knowledgeable and delightful realtor, and I hope many with have the pleasure of working with her as their realtor.
Cheryl is the most professional Realtor I have ever worked with. She is so caring and honest. I was moving from Florida to Steamboat Springs after loosing my husband to cancer; Cheryl was extremely thoughtful and always went out of her way to make the transition as easy as possible for me. I not only gained an incredible realtor... But also a friend.
Cheryl was a true professional to work with. She went above and beyond our detailed research and found us a perfect home in an area that wasn’t even on our radar. Even while on vacation with her family she fielded our phone calls, and most importantly, her intimate knowledge of the Steamboat market helped get us a great deal.

There are at least three things I like about Cheryl Foote, based on our recent closing of our town home:
I like her ‘impatient’ get-it-done personality.
I like her keeping us informed via text, email and phone. Realtors buy and sell property every day; and I do it once in 15-years; I really appreciated her ‘hand-holding’ and guidance, especially since I am detail oriented.
I like her understanding of our desires and only showing us properties that were real candidates.
I like her working almost 24-hours a day to keep this on track with everyone’s crazy schedules.
I liked her taking the time to show the property again to our son, Danny.
Well maybe there are more than 3 things.

If you’re considering buying or selling property in Steamboat, you owe it to yourself to call Cheryl Foote. Her knowledge of the Steamboat market and obvious passion for helping others find their special place combine to make the experience both productive and enjoyable.
We had the pleasure of working with Cheryl when looking to fulfill a long standing dream of owning a condo in Steamboat. She has a local’s knowledge of Steamboat and quickly helped us focus our search on the properties that met our criteria. She seemed to know everyone in town and was able to schedule showings and obtain information at a moment’s notice. Her energy level and work ethic are amazing.
Cheryl is a true professional and her enthusiasm for what she does made our experience truly enjoyable. We would definitely work with her again and highly recommend that you do too.

We were seeking an aggressive agent to get our house sold when the economy had turned. not only did Cheryl counsel us through dealing with our bank, she got our house sold and we were able to move on. We look forward to the recovery and getting back into the market.

We recently completed a real estate purchase in Steamboat Springs facilitated most professionally by Cheryl Foote. She was very accommodating from the moment we unexpectedly interrupted her weekend day at the office and took time to listen to our interests, and provided us with many leads and directions to explore our options. She was attentive, readily available even after normal office hours, and responsive to all of our questions. i would not hesitate to recommend her to others. Plus, she was just a fun person with whom to work and talk.

I recently found myself needing a real estate agent to help me make a purchase. I called Cheryl Foote and soon I was in a new condo. Cheryl was so reliable, returned my calls promptly and set up many showings. She is a great listener and showed me places that met my requirements. She is very educated about the market, enthusiastic about her job and was always cheerful. Finding a new home was much more than a business transaction with Cheryl Foote, it was fun!
Cheryl is so professional and caring. She really connects with her customers. I would most certainly recommend Cheryl!
It was a pleasure working with you Cheryl. You are the best. And, we will for sure tell our friends about you- that's a no brainer!
Matt & Jessica
Cheryl was very professional to work with and got great results! Our property sold with just one showing!! I was actually a little disappointed that we were not able to see her full capabilities.
Cheryl is a diligent and knowledgeable realtor who worked hard to help us sell a Stagecoach lot. We appreciate her time and efforts and would recommend her to anyone residing in or relocating in the Steamboat area.

Working with Cheryl on the sale of my house was a delight. More importantly, she handled a difficult situation and got the property to settlement when many other agents would have failed. I have a second property that I will be listing with Cheryl in the near future, which is the best recommendation anyone can give.
