Sherry sold my home for me, and when the first buyer fell through (not our fault), she immediately relisted my home and we found a buyer the very next day. Her quick actions led to an even BETTER deal than before!
Since I had moved out of state, she handled scheduling all of the requested repairs to my home on my behalf... she even found out that some of the repairs didn't even need to be made which saved me lots of money! Furthermore, she was even willing to be my Power of Attorney the day of closing since I had moved out of state. Closing went so smoothly. I'm so glad I chose her as my realtor.
I am one very pleased customer!!!
From the moment we began searching for our home, Sherry made us feel comfortable and put our minds at ease. She walked us though every step of the home buying process and reassured us we’d find the perfect home to meet our needs within our budget. As first time homebuyers, we had no idea what side of town we’d like to live on or even what style of home we preferred. After assisting us with loan pre approval, Sherry conducted a lengthy search throughout the greater Columbia area, helped us pinpoint our vision, remained positive, encouraging, and maintained the utmost professionalism throughout our search. Working with Sherry felt like being with a close friend, it was evident she was happy to continue our search until we’d found exactly what we hoped for. That summer, I remember Sherry even took time away from her beach vacation to email us new listings. With Sherry’s help, we were able to find much more in a home than we’d ever hoped for, in an established neighborhood with excellent schools, and exceeding everything on our wish list .Sherry has the highest ethical standards and we felt extremely confident knowing we’d chosen a trustworthy, wonderful advocate for this new venture and had made a solid investment for our future and family home. We will always recommend Sherry to prospective homebuyers, she works tirelessly and is dedicated to her clients. We will always be indebted to her for finding us the perfect home.

Thank you so much for everything you did. You really made the whole experience very smooth and worry free. I’ve heard all these horror stories about trying to buy a house and how difficult it can be. I don’t think it could’ve gone any better.
Thank you again!
Your professionalism in handling the sale of my Mother’s house exceeded all my expectations. After our initial phone conversation you understood how important it was to sell her home in a timely manner and with the slow economy it became quite the challenge. You asked many questions in our initial conversation, which helped build a business relationship so important in selling a home. You made me feel comfortable working with you and I knew you were going to sell my Mother’s house.
You kept your word on everything you told me in our first meeting. Your attention to detail, real estate experience, and knowledge was valuable in resolving issues and kept the sale moving in the right direction.
Thanks for all your hard work and a smooth transaction.
We met Sherry initially through our relocation company. After meeting with Sherry and another agent, we decided to list our house in Lexington with Sherry. She was very professional and presented us with a reasonable outlook for selling our house quickly. Much to our surprise, she sold our house in 34 days! The selling process was so easy with Sherry's help. When we returned to the Lexington area, we knew exactly who to call to help with our home search. Sherry immediately went to work for us, searching for the "perfect" house we had described for her. Even though our search took nearly five months, it was not for Sherry's lack of trying. We placed an offer on a house and she met us there numerous times even before we made that offer so we could have contractors come in to give us estimates. She worked hard to set up appointments for us after price negotiations and after we decided not to purchase the home, she continued to work hard for us. We spent many weekends with Sherry going on "marathon house tours" and she got to know us so well she could tell us immediately whether we'd like the house or not. She was right 100% of the time! Once we found our house, she made everything so easy and we didn't have to worry about anything. She made sure to get everything lined up so we could close in less than 30 days. She told us everything we needed to do, worked around our busy schedules and allowed us to email documents to her to keep the process moving. Sherry was always available to talk - via text, email or a phone conversation - even late at night. Now that we are settled in our home, we actually miss talking to her multiple times a week. She really became a friend and we highly recommend working with Sherry. We will definitely be contacting her in the future if we decide to purchase another home.

My husband and I moved from Las Vegas to Columbia for work, and we really had no knowledge of the area at all. We found Sherry through the Prudential Midlands website, and she was absolutely wonderful from day one! She responded to all of my emails and phone calls promptly, and always gave me her undivided attention. I flew out from Las Vegas prior to our move to do some house hunting, and Sherry cleared her schedule for me! She clearly explained each step of the process to us, made sure we understood our legal rights as buyers, and pointed out the pros and cons of each neighborhood we explored. I am picky and have a picky husband, so needless to say we went to A LOT of houses. Sherry never seemed to mind at all, and she remained so patient and professional. This isn't our first time buying a house, and having worked with other realtors I can tell you that they aren't always so patient with buyers. Sherry was just incredible. She was careful to listen to what we wanted, and she didn't try to "dress up" a house or pressure us one way or another. Even after we had a deal fall through because of inspection problems (absolutely beyond Sherry's control), she didn't miss a beat. She just got right back to work to find us our perfect house. I'm telling you, she has the patience of a Saint! She seemed to know what we wanted before we even said it and steered us right to our ideal neighborhood. We found an affordable house in a great neighborhood just minutes away from the school we wanted our son to attend. We've been in our house a few months now, and we love it more and more every day. We really could not have been happier with our experience with Sherry!

She was very easy to work with and went out of her way to me at houses to look inside. She was very helpful with the negotiating of the property and a real pleasure to work with.
We recently bought a new home in Columbia, SC. While searching for homes on realtor.com I had clicked on a few homes requesting more information. For all the ones I clicked on Sherry was the only one who responded to me. Sherry was very eager to help us find a new home. She answered all our questions and concerns and if she didn’t have an answer right away she got back to us very quickly. Once we found our home Sherry made sure all the paperwork was in order and made the whole process go smoothly. She made sure we understood everything that was going on. She went through the walk through for us since we were located out of state. Without Sherry’s help this would not of been possible. We appreciate everything she has done for us and we highly recommend any one looking to buy or sell to contact Sherry. She will go out of her way to help you out.

We wanted to write a note to express our appreciation for our favorite Realtor “Sherry Chestnutt” !!!
She was instrumental in getting us 104 Gibson Rd. Without her constant perseverance (even through serious illness), we don’t think it would have happened.
She also slam dunked the sale of 1011 Woodlawn Ave. Thus she’ll be listing 700 Rookwood Rd.
We brag about her and your company to all our friends and family.
She is the very best in our book, there is no better… What a team ya’ll make!!!

We just recently bought our new home in Elgin, SC though Realtor, Sherry Chesnutt. We cannot say enough wonderful things about Sherry and how wonderful it was to work with her. Before beginning the hunt for our new home we had many terrifying preconceived notions about how difficult, stressful, and time consuming the process would be. We could not have been more wrong. Sherry worked tirelessly, even during her own family vacation, to line up houses for us to look at that met the specifications we had outlined for her. She took us to see every home we requested and was so accommodating working around our hectic schedules with work and our children. Once we found the house of our dreams she wasted no time getting things in order. If there was paperwork that needed to be filled out or signed, she came to us, which was a tremendous help. She explained everything to us in terms that we could understand and made us feel so comfortable and confident about our decision. She told us everything we needed to do, where we needed to be, and when we needed to be there. She was present at all of our inspections and did not rest until she was certain that the home we were about to purchase was a sound investment. She coordinated with the loan officer at the bank and the closing attorney so all we had to do was turn in the requested documents and sign at closing. We highly recommend working with Sherry. We feel so fortunate to have had the chance to work with her, and it is with 100% confidence we refer her to absolutely anyone in the market looking to buy or sell a home. She made our first home a truly memorable experience, and we are forever indebted to her for that.

I just wanted to thank you for all your help with selling my house. I’m so surprised it sold so quickly with the way the world is today. This was my first experience with selling a house and I was really afraid of what I would have to do. You handled everything and did a wonderful job. If I needed to talk to you or ask you something, all I had to do was call and you would answer my questions. If you did not know, you would find out and get right back to me with an answer. You are very prompt. You even went out of your way a lot of times to meet with me to go over things due to me being out of town working. You explained things to me where I understood them. You went over everything with me step by step and made sure I understood everything. You are a very cheerful and out-going person. I am glad we saw your billboard ad that day. If I were to buy another house or if anyone were to ask me about a Realtor, I would highly recommend you. If anyone asks me, I will give them your name and number. Don’t be surprised when you might hear my name again from someone else.
I just wanted to thank you for making this such a wonderful experience. Your company has a wonderful person working for them.
Mrs. K. Brazell
Lisa and I can’t thank you enough for the hard work and dedication that you put into selling our house. We were comfortable, and carried an enormous amount of trust in you, and you were by far our best decision.

About four months before my wife, Krystal, and I closed on our home with our realtor Sherry we began our home search online. We happened upon one of Sherry’s listings that we were interested in. We gave Sherry a call from our home in Illinois. Sherry was so helpful over the phone. She told us all about SC and Columbia; good places to eat, good beaches to visit, and must-see attractions. She assured us that we would love it here in SC, and we do! Since Krystal and I lived half the country away from where we were looking to buy our home search was conducted almost entirely online. Over the course of our four month house hunt I complied a list of nearly 50 houses in the greater Columbia area that we might be interested in. Sherry sorted through our ¬entire list, plus listings that we did not find online, to compile a list of must-see’s for us when we came down for a weekend house hunt. Sherry took such great care of us. My wife and I are a young couple and we were moving half-way across the country away from friends and family. Sherry took us under her wing and told us that she would look after us like we were her own children. She personally scouted and approved each and every neighborhood she showed us a house in to inspect it for safety. She was so hospitable; she was the perfect welcome to the Columbia community. After several months of looking online Krystal and I were finally able to make it down to Columbia for a weekend house hunt. Sherry was so generous with her time and blocked the whole weekend off for us to find a home. She was able to find us the perfect place on the second day of searching! Sherry negotiated a great deal for us and even got the sellers to agree to letting my wife and I rent the house until we closed. Sherry coordinated all aspects of the home buying process for us since it was so difficult for us to do so from across the country. We could not have done this without Sherry! She was absolutely invaluable during this process. We will absolutely be certain to come to her with all our real estate needs in the future.
Chris and Krystal
I wanted to take a minute to thank you again for your hard work in finding me the perfect home.
Sherry it was definitely a pleasure working with you! I really appreciated how knowledgeable you were and how fast you got everything completed.
I'm definitely not only going to recommend you to people that tell me they are looking for a house, I'm going to recommend people move just so they can work with you!
Thanks for everything and when the time comes, I know who to call!

My wife and I had the unfortunate timing of relocating to a new city and putting our house on the market right at the beginning of the housing decline. During the three years that our house was on the market, we used many different realtors; however, we were the most impressed with Sherry. She always worked extremely hard to market our house, and we felt that she gave us the personal attention that had been lacking with the other agents that we used. In addition, she alleviated so much of the stress that came along with owning a property hours away from where we live because she constantly checked on our house and kept us informed. She is a great person and a consummate professional, and we have already recommended her to friends who want to sell their house.

I want to let you know how much I appreciate you and all your hard work on my behalf in the selling of one home and in the purchasing of another. You are excellent at what you do! Not only are you knowledgeable of your business, you excel in understanding personalities and needs. It was a pleasure to work with a realtor of such high caliber! No one could have done a better job and I thank God for allowing us to cross paths. Thank you so very much for all you did for me. I look forward to working with you again in the future.
I have moved several times during my career and have used a Realtor for most of the homes I have bought and sold in the process and I can honestly say that Sherry is one of the best. She is friendly and fun to work with, very knowledgeable about Columbia Real Estate, and I would recommend her to anyone interested in buying a home in the Columbia area.
My son, Justin, is a student at USC and recently decided he wanted to buy a home in Columbia. I told him I would help but I wanted him to do most of the work. So he went on the internet and found several homes that looked interesting and entered his info. He called some ads but got no calls back and then Sherry called him and said she would be happy to help. And help she did!
Justin had a limited budget but Sherry treated him like he was buying a million dollar home. She met with him anytime he wanted and showed him every home he was interested in. She gave him great advice and helped him get financing, insurance, home inspections, a lawyer and even recommended a great place to buy his appliances.
Sherry enjoys what she does and it shows. She was always friendly and courteous and made it very clear to Justin that she was happy to do anything he needed to help him decide on a home. She never pressured him but once Justin was ready to make an offer Sherry took complete ownership of the process all the way to the closing. She kept both Justin and me informed as things progressed and followed up numerous times with various people involved in the process. Sherry's energy and her determination to make sure everything went smoothly were extraordinary.
If you are buying a home I am sure Sherry will be glad to help in any way she can just like she did with my son.
You did a great job getting my Mom's house out on the market soon after we contacted you and also making sure that other realtors were aware of the house and location. Your virtual tour on the website was awesome and had you had tons of great shots of the house. The closing went as smooth as silk and I would highly recommend you to all my friends. Thank you so much for all your hard work.
You have always been willing to go that "extra" but that has made things easier for me. For that, I thank you.
I appreciate your professionalism, energy and diligence.
God bless you, and I wish you success in your endevors.

Buying a home can be an exciting and at the same time frustrating experience. Sherry Chesnutt was my realtor and she helped me through the entire process. She is probably the most professional and detail oriented realtors I have every met. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home.
I have to say we were very pleased with the results! Using Sherry Chesnutt and the Prudential Midlands RE Team
was the best decision we made in three years. Information flow was accurate and timely, marketing was precise, direction
was planned and executed, fears alleviated, attorneys known, signed contract in 15 days and property sold at 94% of asking
Jim & Kelly, Charlotte
This letter is in reference to thanking you for the hard work that you did in selling my Dad and Mom's house. Compared to the other Realtors that I used, you were the best to go out of your way to make sure everything was in order. The house was sold properly which made it possible for me not to worry. Even through the hards with losing my mom and dealing with the lender, you were there 100 percent. I will definitely recommend you to other potential customers. Thank you again for everything you have done.
