Trusted Leader In Southern California Real Estate


Welcome to Sheryl Lynn Thornton’s Website!

Sheryl Lynn Thornton was born in the San Fernando Valley (yes, a valley girl) she raised her family in Woodland Hills. Sheryl specializes in the Woodland Hills through Thousand oaks area. With over 23 years as a full-time realtor, she prides herself on getting every detail of the real estate process right. From understanding her client’s needs to closing the deal, Sheryl is at top of her game.

Surprisingly, she is always amazed that someone will hire an agent who is not experienced, detailed oriented and most importantly who doesn’t know the value of the homes in the area (maybe it’s your sisters friend who is a part-time agent, who says they are going to give you a deal?) You don’t want a discount agent when selling your home. That discount will end up costing you thousands! Sheryl realizes people don’t know what they don’t know.

Sheryl sees pictures of homes that go to market with clothes laying around, dishes in the sink or trash cans lined up on the driveway. Sheryl makes sure your home is ready for market before she sends one of her experienced photographers out. She makes a point to attend every photo session to ensure everything is in the right place or in most cases hidden.

Pricing a home is one of the most important parts of the sale. Sheryl spends a lot of time studying every detail of the comparables and waits until the home is ready to show before she commits to the exact number. Once the home is ready for market, she prices it at exactly what it should be. She nails the pricing every time.

Lastly, negotiations throughout the process of the escrow can mean thousands of dollars, Sheryl says this is like playing chess. Every move is crucial.

Buying and selling a home is one of the biggest financial decisions one can make in their lifetime. Sheryl recommends hiring a good, experienced, full-time Realtor who knows the area.
