"We recently relocated from the suburbs of Chicago to the Decatur area for a new job. It was a really short timeline relocation with our move taking place 4 weeks after we accepted the new job. The weekend following the acceptance we took a weekend trip to Decatur to see what sort of housing options we could expect. We contacted Sherry with a list of wants and needs on Saturday afternoon and she met us for some whirlwind house hunting on Sunday. Sherry was very friendly, very organized and was extremely attentive to our needs. And when we found the perfect house (to our surprise!) Sunday evening, she very quickly researched the property and gave us the info and advice needed to make an offer. She also contacted the seller’s agent and made the offer for us. She also took care of all the inspection and scheduling! She handled everything quickly and efficiently and was very communicative - she made the long-distance home buying process so easy and stress free. We love our new place and have Sherry to thank for it! She also gave us good recommendations for an agent to sell our old place in the suburbs. If we ever buy or sell more property in this area, our first call will be to Sherry! You can trust her to take care of you and make the home buying process pain free. I definitely recommend!!!" -Danielle S.

"When we moved to this area two years ago we knew no one. We chose Sherry Plain because she looked like a genuinely nice person in her picture online. We can say now, after two years and buying three houses here, that not only is she genuinely nice and very personable, but she will work hard for you. Whatever it takes. She will work, day, night, weekends without hesitation to get you the house you want. If you are looking for an easy and pleasurable real estate experience, then I highly recommend Sherry Plain. You won't be disappointed!" -Jeni J.

"I recently purchased a home with the Exceptional guidance of Sherry. She provided me with everything I needed in my search for a new home. The process was long and daunting with the mortgage co but Sherry was able to keep everything going forward with paperwork and other requests from mortgage co. I couldn't have had a more Professional and Qualified person helping me with such a large investment. Thanks Sherry!" -Michael D.

"Sherry was amazing! We were in a hurry to find a new house fast and we weren’t exactly sure just where we had wanted one. We knew we wanted a great family starter home in a small town. As we looked around we had found several houses and small towns along with her suggestions and they all were at least 30 minutes from each other and Sherry was excited about each one! A lot of people would get frustrated or annoyed with how far we looked and the amount of houses we looked at but Sherry was extremely supportive the whole time. She always answered every question we had and was always available. As we looked at buying our first home she made sure we were getting the right one that was best for us and didn’t try to just put us in a bad house. If there was anything wrong with the house she made sure to give us advice on it. The best part that made her stand out the most to me is when we had found the perfect house. We had found the listing that night and contacted her. It was on the market for less that 24 hours so we knew we had to see it fast and Sherry didn’t hesitate to schedule it in after we both got off work especially considering it was going to be viewed twice before we had seen it. As soon as I had walked in I knew it was the one. As soon as I had told her we ran back to the office and she fought to put our offer in and asked that the sellers had made there decision by 10 pm that night. So not only did she take us to the office that night around 7pm but she helped us with the peace of mind knowing if we would or would have had our offer accepted that night, and on top of that she made sure it would have a 1 year warranty, all appliances included, and that the sellers pay part of the closing cost. It was awesome! She had suggested a great mortgage broker to help us out with the process! I’m so thankful for Sherry and if you ever want a great realtor to help you find just the right house she’s the one!" -Brittany W.

"About a year and a half ago we began looking for a new house. We stumbled across on in the country listed by Sherry Plain. She immediately met with us and showed use the house. From that moment we began using Sherry as our realtor in helping us find our dream home. She did just that found us a beautiful home nestled in the woods sitting on 8 acres. I highly recommend using Sherry for your Decatur realtor. I promise she will work with you and find your dream home. Thank you so much Sherry!!!!!" -Camille M.
