More about the Team
"Putting the client first since 1989"
As real estate partners since 1989, we bring our clients the hands-on involvement and personal availability of two full-time agents with 62 years of experience combined. We feel privileged to work with people in relation to something that is so central to their financial well-being and quality of life. We are both committed to making sure that every client's real estate experience is a positive and rewarding one, and to accomplish this, we pay attention to each and every detail, whether in preparing homes, evaluating home values, negotiating clear and favorable contracts, or marketing and promoting homes. We believe that by skillfully managing every detail, we can bring our clients the full benefit of our experience and expertise.
For us, it is far more important how we do business than how much business is done. We have been putting our clients first since 1989!

At the time they joined forces, Karyl and Jennifer could never have known how exceptionally lucky they were. To their surprise, they discovered that their skills are almost perfectly complementary. Karyl's strengths are in the areas of marketing, negotiation, contracts and preparing homes for sale. Jennifer is a master of the inventory and seems to know everything that is on the market, often before it appears on the MLS. She is very gifted at conducting open houses and ensuring that all of the required paperwork is in place to comply with the law.
Together Karyl and Jennifer make a powerful team. By the time escrow closes, their clients invariably remark that the Home Team partnership has been a huge benefit to them, It goes to show that 1 plus 1 sometimes can equal 3.
"Coldwell Banker is fortunate to have such a dedicated pair as Karyl Eldrige and Jennifer Cheung. From the start, it was obvious that they put considerable time and effort into researching various issues related to our home sale. They were very knowledgeable about property values and market trends. Karyl was adept in the anticipation of potential problems, and her excellent advice helped me to make some difficult decisions. She strongly held our position when the negotiations became difficult. Jennifer's paperwork was flawless ... I believe the two-person team appraoch is an excellent idea. I would recommend Karyl and Jennifer to anyone I know." -- William Schwarz, Retired Engineer
