I wanted to send you all a formal "thank you" for your services in selling my parents' home in Sun City Roseville this year. You, as a team, provided services above and beyond other companies----and we interviewed three teams before deciding to work with you. For sellers who live out of town, like us, your services are amazing!
Rick, your landscape crew immediately made the front yard look great with all the fresh bark and the walks/driveway power-washed. I didn't have to worry about yard maintenance at all since you managed it. Also, you were right there checking the whole house to determine if there were any needed repairs or trouble-spots and taking action.
Sheri, I appreciated soooo much that you set up all the appointments for me (inspection, repair work, carpet cleaning, and anything else that came up). You got after any agency that was late getting work done, then worked deals with them to lower fees/costs. (By the way, I did get a letter of apology from the Title Company, thank you.) During negotiations with the buyer, I appreciated all the market information you shared with me, our discussions, and then you patiently waited for me to make decisions.
Patti, you were such a tremendous help meeting with us to advise how to "stage" the home. I cannot thank you enough for making all the arrangements to have furniture, etc, donated to Roseville Hospice (twice) and for hauling away all unwanted stuff. What a job! You also took care of the cleaning and maintenance while the house was on the market. Thank you so much!
Larry, even though I didn't meet you, I know you made it possible for me to sign all paperwork via the computer program you manage----so I didn't have to drive to Roseville each time something needed a signature. Huge help!
I appreciated how you presented all your services at our initial interview, Sheri and Rick, and your presentation booklet was outstanding----even discussed a balance sheet for a "what if..." scenario that explained all the closing costs, your commission, etc. Really a good visual approach and very practical!
Most of all, I appreciated how responsive you all were. I would receive calls back from you within a couple hours and even from out of state if that's where you happened to be! And when I was out of town, you were willing to conduct business via phone (and messages when I was out of cell phone range) and it seemed to work well.
Thank you for everything, and for making my life easier.
I've bought and sold a few houses in my lifetime but Tricia is the best Realtor® I've ever had. Her upbeat, cheerful, positive, and professional manner is a wonderful asset. There's never a trace of negativity or pressure. She is amazingly energetic and accommodating and willing to go the distance to find the right house at the right price. Her ability to negotiate the complexities of offers, counter-offers, and the endless details of escrow and closing are second to none and she uses the Internet and the newest software to streamline the process. If you are looking for a hardworking, highly ethical and very savvy agent, Tricia Smullen won't disappoint. - Sally
Carolyn and I were immediately impressed when Rick Johnson met with us. Within a couple of days after calling, Rick showed up with a personalized brochure about their Real Estate Firm and particulars on our property. He explained that if we went with them we didn't just get him but we would get his team. He would provide complete service including maintaining the home and yard after we moved out without additional charge. We met Sheri and signed up. We then met Patti (Rick's Wife) and felt like we were going to be totally taken care of. She offered to patch picture nail holes in the wall and to do painting and staging of the home as required. She was also so helpful in making our transition as painless as possible--disposing of extra packing boxes, willing to dispose of any e-waste, arranging to dispose of our golf cart, etc. Rick in the meantime visited our home almost daily and looked after things until final sale. Then Sheri went into action during close of escrow and shepherded us through the stressful process.
Many thanks to Rick, Sheri, and Patti. This is an experienced and thoughtful team we would recommend to anyone interested in selling their home. - John
Cris and I wanted to extend our sincere thanks for the tremendous job you did in selling our property in Sun City Roseville. Living in another state, the thought of selling a home in California was something that we really were dreading. But, thanks to your constant contacts, attention to detail, understanding of the market, and listening to what we wanted, you made the process of selling the Sun City Roseville home a complete pleasure.
We have sold or purchased property through the years and all too frequently there isn't enough Advil to go around for all the headaches and problems. However, thanks to all your efforts, we had just the opposite experience. It was an easy sale, you told us want we needed to do, you kept us informed every step of the way (we loved the constant updates) and we closed early. In our books, you are a star! - Bill & Cris
I can't recall doing business with a more knowledgable and efficient company, and I do a lot of business work. In fact, you taught me a few things about good business. When I first called Rick and Patty, they were at the house before I finished the call. They then stopped by to meet us, at our convenience, fully prepared with all the information we needed to get started, but no pressure to use Capitol Oaks. When they described how they worked, it was obvious they had developed a plan to take much of the work and pressure off us. As part of their service, Rick said he would upgrade the outside, including lawns, trimming, planting, cleanup, etc; Patti says she would get rid of all unwanted stuff, including haul off junk, and bring in items to help stage the house; Sheri was right on top of the market, explained the process clearly, handled all the paperwork and listed the property. Not surprisingly, the house sold within a few weeks, at a solid, fair price, and escrow closed two months after the initial listing.
You are a fantastic team. On a personal note, you taught me not to just "do the job" but to consider what else the other person (client) needs and meet that as well. Not only would I happily recommend you, but I've already used you as an example of how service and communication should be done. Thanks for making this process go incredibly smooth and easy for us.
- Rick S
Our experience with Capitol Oaks Real Estate was wonderful and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone in need of an extraordinary team to guide them through the sometimes confusing current market. Sheri and Rick kept us informed, educated and helped us make the decisions necessary to get the home sold while always being sensitive to our needs. All said a job well done by very professional people that were a pleasure to deal with. Huge Thanks!!
Sheri ... this was an emotional chapter for my family, as my parents enjoyed a wonderful 10 years at their Sun City home. I want to thank you, Rick and Tricia for the hard work and attention you all provided. You worked together well as a team, from the moment we listed, through staging and prep, the ongoing marketing of the property, managing the offers, and then constantly communicating with the buyer's Agent, Lender, and Escrow company through the entire transaction. I don't think it would have closed at all without your persistence and attention.
I highly recommend you and your team!
Over the years my wife and I have sold six houses. Working with Sheri to sell our Sun City home was the easiest, quickest, and least painful of any of the transactions. From Sheri's thorough and professional preparation of the Real Estate Services Proposal and there replacing and sprucing up of our landscaping, through her marketing of our home and taking charge of the negotiations with the buyer, to the sign off and moving out of the house: her competence and thoroughness were evident at every stage of the process." - Jim K
We could not ask for anyone more attentive and pleasant than Sheri. She was informative and always kept us up to date on anything and everything regarding our home search. We learned so much from her and we would recommend her to anyone, whether it is your first home or your 50th. She was GREAT!!!!” - HomeGain Client
Sheri has handled four transactions for me (two in Rocklin, two in
Auburn)in the last seven years and is currently looking for a home for me right now. She has also handled several for my parents. I would recommend her to anyone. She certainly knows her field and at one time was a board member of the regional RE agents ethics committee- she may still be a member.
I may judge an agent a bit differently than you. It is pretty unusual that a transaction will go through without problems. I really think it is far more important how an agent handles the problems than how smoothly the transaction goes. I suppose any agent can handle a smooth transaction, but
if there is a problem, I want Sheri. She is not afraid to jump into the
battle and fight for her clients and she is very good with difficult people.
If she can, she has always shielded her clients from the problems
especially the emotions generated when they pop up) and handled them
herself whenever possible but she always kept me well informed.
Above everything else, she is highly ethical. She has no problem holding
people accountable for their actions (or inaction) if she believes that it
negatively impacts her client. We had a seller try to back out of a sale
after we had sold our home and moved to temporary housing and she really
went to bat for us. We eventually got the house.
I never had problems getting a hold of her. Usually I left messages and if I didn't hear back right away, it was usually because she was getting the info I was requesting before she called me. She never once missed an appointment.
If you want someone to candy-coat everything for you, that is not Sheri. Sometimes you may not like the reality of a situation and Sheri will advise you if she thinks you may not be looking at the full picture. She calls it as it is and gives you the facts. Sheri made sure that I never signed a document, made an agreement, or paid for anything that I didn't understand or was not proper. - Tracy
Sheri was our advocate when we sold our house in 1999 and every detail was handled with care and attention. It was a difficult move for us to another city and going back to renting and she made it seem normal and easy.
After nine years of renting waiting for the house prices to come back into our range, we decided to buy again in 2008 and there was only one person I trusted to help us back into the home ownership world. Sheri is detail oriented, festidious about protecting our clients whether you are buying or selling, and knowledgable about every aspect of the process, so we breezed through the purchase smiling when we could have been unbelivably stressed. We are home owners again because we trust Sheri Rodda.
I highly recommend Sheri Rodda of Capitol Oaks Real Estate, without reservation. Sheri was the consummate professional as broker/buyer’s agent for my recent purchase of a home in the North Natomas area of Sacramento, CA. As a buyer relocating from out-of-state, I needed quite a bit of help to locate properties. Sheri took special care to maximize the time I had to spend looking at potential properties by taking me around to multiple neighborhoods so I could really get a sense of the city and previewing dozens of homes for me so that when I flew in to Sacramento we could make the most of just a few days.
Once a suitable property was identified, Sheri demonstrated expertise in all phases of the transaction and was an especially savvy and tough negotiator. Her skills were particularly helpful since the property that I ultimately chose to purchase was a vacant, bank-owned property which made it especially difficult to communicate with the owner about a potential deal.
Once the property purchase was complete, Sheri was instrumental in getting and managing contractors to successfully complete extensive kitchen, bath, and flooring renovations under budget and within tight time constraints. She also brought to bear an extensive list of contacts from around the city to help me with the smaller tasks associated with a new home purchase— including turning on utilities and arranging for minor repairs.
Sheri’s seamless, soup-to-nuts approach to home buying led me to recommend her services to my youngest daughter who was recently married and was looking for a home. Sheri brought the same diligent, thorough, thoughtful approach to my daughter’s home buying experience. My daughter is now enjoying a beautiful new home close by and I could not have been more pleased with the outcome.
I could continue with more glowing accounts of Sheri’s services, but will instead simply say that I really do think the world of her and will request her services for any future home purchases.
I had the pleasure of working with Sheri Rodda, of Capitol Oaks Real Estate, from November 2007 until May 2008. She helped me find a home in Sun City Roseville, CA. She spent time with me when I visited Sun City from Orange County, CA and also with my daughter. Sheri spent many hours showing us homes until she found just the right one for me. Then she closely assisted me through the total buying process. Sheri is very professional, knowledgeable and really cares about her clients. I would recommend Sheri and Capitol Oaks Real Estate anytime.
We loved working with Sheri. She was very knowledgeable in real estate, the economy and our area. Her suggestions were very helpful in selling our house. She is honest and is a tremendous asset to the community. Sheri would meet us at our convenience. Many times she would come over in the evening so that we might meet while the baby was asleep. She was even there when our daughter crawled for the first time! We have used her services to sell our house and buy a new one. In the future we would love to work with her again and we recommend her to everyone we know. Thank you Sheri for your help and becoming a valued family friend! - Wynne and Mel
The Capitol Oaks Realtors have helped me out so much over the years I wouldn't think about going anywhere else! - Steve
We purchased a home with Sheri's help in 2008. Sheri collected our information and began the process of showing us homes with all the criteria we had given her. She was always looking out for our best interest, to include finding and negotiating a better loan package that fit our finances. She stayed with us through the entire process. No question that Sheri's expertise in finances, loan contracts, in particular helped us get a better/smarter deal. We love the home/area she found for us. If you are buying a home, you want Sheri to be your "negotiator." Sheri is also friendly and easy to talk to. She is professional and most important, she knows the business.
- Jeni and Jan
After considering several real estate agents it was no contest to select Sheri amongst the rest. From the beginning, she demonstrated professionalism and a genuine interest in understanding what was important to us in selling our home. She made the whole process seem effortless and we sold our home for full asking price in less time than the average time homes stayed on the market. - Dan
Sheri has been my realtor since 1989 when she helped my buy my first home.
Since then she has helped me 3 more times including my most recent home purchase in 2000.
Not only is Sheri extremely knowledgeable in her field, dedicated to her clients and a true professional, she has also become a valued friend. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her to anyone."
When I was asked to relocate, Sheri not only provided assistance in finding perfect temporary housing, but when it came time to buy our first home she was our guide in making sure we got exactly what we wanted at a good price. Absolutely wonderful!
Working with Sheri was an absolute pleasure. Her competent, professional handling of our home sale, was complemented by her outstanding customer service orientation. She was honest and upfront with us throughout the entire process and her expert guidance helped us every step of the way from listing to close. It was truly refreshing to work with someone who really does put their customer's first.
