Sheryl Kersten

It's about YOU ... the real estate process, that is! I LOVE what I do and that includes taking great care of my clients. I have been at RE/MAX in north oakland county almost 20 years in this business. Obviously, I believe in the company and the results. RE/MAX is very much "Above the Crowd" and completely different than a typical real estate office.  

Most recently, the 'Hall of Fame' award for lifetime achievement was awarded to me. I have always been referred to as a "work-a-holic"; but you will be grateful when I am on your side in a real estate transaction. I pride myself in being a passionate advocate. I am about people and relationships, not transactions.  

When I am not meeting with clients and negotiating, I enjoy my family of 3 kids and a husband! I have been married for 23 years! We are active in our local church and definitely a sports crazy family! My oldest plays college soccer, my middle is a talented and avid bowler, and my youngest is softball & volleyball junkee. I coach my daughter's fastpitch softball team. See, I do relax every now & then!    

I look forward to meeting you & seeing how I can help your family in their next move!      

 Oh, by the way, I am never too busy for any of your referrals!

Specialties: Buyer's Agent, Listing Agent, Relocation, Foreclosure


  1. Start out right
    Use technology and the Internet. No matter what some of the "older and more experienced" may tell you, you need the Internet to market in the real estate world today.
  2. Price it right
    Activity in the first month of a listing is always the best, so don't risk wasting it. Price too high, and scare off many buyers and other agents. Don't get caught up in pricing games.
  3. Sell by season
    No matter what the season, home selling is a year-round sport. Use seasonal accents to make potential buyers linger longer.
  4. Be the "neighborhood expert"
    Always know what's on the market, what sold recently, and the overall status of the neighborhood. Nowadays, anyone can look at houses online but the top agents know what lurks below the surface.
    Studies show that home sellers who use a real estate agent to represent them generally get a better price than those who sell the home themselves. Real estate agents are up-to-date on critical processes and can help keep you out of trouble. They can also help you get your home sold at the best price in the right time frame. Equally as important, real estate agents add objectivity to an inherently emotional transaction: the sale of your home.
  6. Before Your Home Is Listed
    It's important to have your home in good showing condition before buyers start going through it. Here are some steps to take:
    • Touch up interior and exterior paint as needed.
    • Install new carpeting and flooring if it appears worn or dated.
    • Make sure the front is clean and spruced up – curb appeal will create a favorable first impression.

Our request to Sheryl about her interest and availability to work with us on looking for a new house was met with an immediate positive response. By the end of the day she had 10 listings confirmed for us to walk through over the next three days. Within a week we found a house, made an offer and in process of finalizing the purchase. Sheryl is a very honest, knowledgeable, friendly and motivated person and agent. Sheryl's dedication to her clients and their needs is very apparent as she makes herself readily available and is very timely with communications and resources. I would highly recommend her to handle your real estate needs.

Sheryl listed & sold our home. We then bought a condo from her in grand blanc. Sheryl was very, very patient since we were not familiar with condos and/or the area. We would definitely recommend Sheryl for all your real estate needs!!

I first came into contact with Sheryl when I called to inquire some details about a home she had listed. She was very accommodating to my work schedule to show me that property (as well as others I have viewed).

Additionally, we discussed what items I was looking for in a home (price, area, beds/baths, etc) and that she was more than happy to show me some of the other homes I was interested in. Sheryl also set up an automatic listing based on certain criteria we discussed, which was very helpful.

Being that this is my first time purchasing a home, Sheryl has been very helpful and thorough in answering my questions with details. Also, due to her experience and tenure in real estate, she was able to refer me to a mortgage lender.
Sheryl has handled several transactions for our entire family plus friends of the family. She is totally dedicated to her clients and the industry. The attributes she displays are paramount to her success.... most important is her honesty which is linked directly to her integrity. When she provides you with pertinent information or is responding to concerns you get the impression she is under oath...she's that capable and her clients are confident in her ability to overcome any obstacles that may jeopardize their real estate transaction. She makes buying and selling fun for the customer....while putting out fires, neutralizing disappointments and efficiently managing her and your time. Simply put...she is the best.

We recently purchased our new family home with the help of Sheryl. We had hit a few road blocks with the loan process and Sheryl fought for us and helped us get our loan to the closing table. She is very professional with a wealth of knowledge about the real estate business. She made us feel comfortable and well takin care of through the home buying process. If we need a realtor anytime in the future, Sheryl will be the first person we call!

Sheryl is an incredibly hard worker, dedicated to her clients needs. Sheryl loves the real estate market and thoroughly enjoys helping people through this transition. Additionally, she is one of the most ethical agents I know.

Sheryl is not only a absolute professional but she is personable and always made my wife and I feel like we were being represented by the best. Sheryl helped us sell our second home and find/purchase our third home. I don't know if we will ever move again but i can guarantee if we do she will be the first person we call. I would recommend her to a friend.

If you are looking for the right real estate professional, look no further. Sheryl has been very helpful with the house buying process. Her expertise in the area, giving good advice and being there when I need her has been over and beyond my expectations. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Bought a home in 2014.
Sheryl, did an outstanding job for Kim and I our recent purchase of our home! Her attention to detail through the purchase process made for a smooth transaction, no bumps. Sheryl, was in constant contact with the sellers agent, asking the right questions on our behalf. Her questions along with her quick and strong negotiating skills, saved Kim and I over $6,000.00. Money that we would have spent on the transaction if it weren’t for Sheryl guidance!! The savings can now be used for other little upgrades we would like to make to our new place! Thank you Sheryl for your involvement on our transaction and truly representing Kim and I!!!

Sheryl is extremely professional. She has a warm, personable way with people. She is very knowledgeable, and answered all of our questions. She provided guidance and direction to us that we never had from other realtors. She was more observant about items in the homes she showed us than any other realtor we had dealt with. We would highly recommend Sheryl to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home.

Sheryl is the only person I would trust for any of my real estate needs. She knows the area very well and is able to make recommendations accordingly. Her time frame is very flexible, and she makes sure to call, email, or text back very quickly. In order to get an offer in to the buyer in a pinch, she met me at 11 pm one night. Working with her has been a wonderful experience between the lunches, showings, inspections, and conversations. She's truly the best!

My wife and I have worked with Sheryl on three home sales. Not only is she a seasoned real estate professional, she is a caring, honest and integrity-driven person. Sheryl understands the market, on both the buyer and seller side, and offers insight and expertise throughout the entire process. She is a strong and passionate negotiator and gets the deal DONE. Highly recommended!

Sold a Single Family home in 1996 in Highland, MI.
My husband Erik and I have used Sheryl starting with our very first home as a young couple over 18 years ago! She has sold two homes of ours within a month of listing them and found us new homes. She has not only been our realtor along our journey but also has become a dear friend who is truly invested in her clients. A true test of her loyalty was when the economy hit and we lost our last home. She helped us to find a rental home while rebuilding our credit. There really is no money in rentals but she still gave us the time and commitment to make sure we found a place we could feel at home. Now that things are steady again we will definitely be using Sheryl for our next home we purchase within the next year and any homes after that!

We have had the pleasure of working with Sheryl on a couple of occasions. Both time she was very professional and kept us updated through the entire process. We felt very fortunate to have Sheryl help us sell two properties and purchase our current home. We would recommend Sheryl without hesitation
