About Me

A native of West Virginia, Cheryl loves the mountains. She has lived in West Virginia, Florida, and North Carolina. The change of seasons is the single most important factor to her when choosing a place to call “home.” Is there any place better to experience the four seasons than Western North Carolina? She has lived in Asheville since the early 2000s, both in downtown’s 21 Battery Park condominiums and currently in North Asheville.

Cheryl enjoys time with her husband, animal rescue, college football, and Elvis. Her most cherished memories are seeing Elvis perform live twice before his death. She has family in North Carolina, West Virginia, and Tennessee, where she visits when time allows.

Experience

Cheryl brings a love of “all things real estate” to the industry. Before becoming a licensed real estate agent, she spent free time assisting friends and neighbors navigate their real estate purchases or sales. Now, she does the same for you.

Over the years, Cheryl purchased, sold, and managed investment properties in three states. In fact, she brought 29 years of sales experience to her role of full-time professional real estate agent with Beverly-Hanks. She spent nearly three decades as a top sales producer in the educational textbook industry, breaking company sales records for two consecutive years. She is a former teacher, sales consultant, district and regional manager, and business owner. Her most recent venture was as owner of More Décor Fine Consignment in the Reynolds Village complex in North Asheville. She assisted buyers and sellers of homes with reselling and downsizing, or with donating furniture and home décor they no longer needed.

She is excited to share her love of the Asheville area with both newcomers and long-time residents.

Testimonials

We chose Cheryl because she not only has great knowledge about our area and real estate in general but we felt confident that she would handle all potential buyers in a professional and effective manner resulting in a quick sale. Cheryl coordinated photography, square footage measurement, MLS listing and more. She was also very helpful with suggestions about staging our home. All of her hard work resulted in our being under contract in 3 days! In addition, her pleasant personality helped make the usual stress of selling a house much easier for us. She even recommended an excellent packing company and moving company. We highly recommend her and would absolutely use her as a realtor again.

Cheryl Cannizzaro did an outstanding job as my agent. She came to my home and offered a number of suggestions that turned my average old home into a property that always got high marks from agents showing the property. She had the house staged and boy did that make a difference! She even brought items of her own to loan me. Cheryl is an excellent communicator. She texted or called on a regular basis; sometimes more than once a day. I was always in the loop and she passed on showing feedback promptly with her optimistic attitude. I never felt discouraged. She has continued to stay in touch since I’ve moved to another location nearby. And I got my asking price! You can’t go wrong with Cheryl as your agent.

I think the best overall thing I can say about our experience with Cheryl is that is was a short relationship. From the time we decided to sell, the two weeks the lot was on the market, then the thirty day wait to closing, Cheryl provided sound, well resourced based information and guidance. Would could not have been happier with the entire selling process Cheryl seamlessly guided us through.

Cheryl Cannizzaro had excellent listening skills which lead to a creative and personalized plan of action just for me. Cheryl asked what was most important to me and I answered that I wanted the least stressful situation and she found a creative way of accomplishing my goal. Also, the fact that she kept all information confidential was admirable in a neighborhood that is overly zealous in their quest for property value knowledge. I love the way I could sign all the paperwork remotely. Having dealt with seven properties in the past, I found the paperwork part of the sale easy, accurate, and timely.

Cheryl is a caring, trustworthy, "get the job done" kind of person. She provided volumes of market analysis and research to assist with finding the right pricing for our home; she coordinated efforts with the B-H marketing team to prepare a beautiful and robust online listing and marketing materials and answered an abundance of questions from us. As with all things, direct and open communication is a must! Cheryl was in constant contact with us, the Buyer's realtor, and others. Her communications - verbal, email, and texts - were professional, clear, concise and timely (I do wonder if she sleeps at all!) She was tireless in her efforts to keep us informed along the way and represented us very professionally every step along the way. Simply put, Cheryl was instrumental in setting the stage for us to receive our first offer in 7 days; we closed 7 weeks later. In my business career, we often surveyed our company employees and asked the question "would you recommend (this company) to your family and friends" as you've asked on this survey. We considered that question to be a key indicator of satisfaction - and weighed it heavily in our results. Happily, we can report that we will definitely recommend Cheryl to family, friends and neighbors should they decide to sell their home!

Is there a best time of the year to buy a house?

When it comes to buying a home, there are pros and cons for each season. Generally, the best season to buy a home is in late summer or fall. There are still plenty of homes for sale, but without the intense competition found during spring. Sellers are also known for being a bit more flexible this time of the year. Zillow reports that the highest number of listings with at least one price reduction are found August–September. However, the deeper buyers venture into fall, the less choice is available. If you value choice, and you want more buyers competing for the home you are leaving, spring could be your best season. Ultimately, the best time to buy a home is when you’re financially ready to do so.
