My wife and I worked with Sheryl Florio for our first home purchase and our first home sale. Her experience and expertise in the real estate business allowed us to feel very comfortable with the process. Buying/selling a home can be quite nerve-wracking, but Sheryl was very straight forward, and candid about the process, allowing us to feel at-ease with everything going on. She encouraged and was responsive to all our questions and concerns and was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. We highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy/sell in the South Western PA area

Sheryl Florio is one of the most premier realtors in all of Pittsburgh. Having her as my realtor made buying my first home an amazing experience! Sheryl is very client-oriented where she put my needs and wants at the forefront of everything she did in the home buying process. She was very thorough and timely when communicating/relaying important information to me as well as to the other parties involved in the sale process. Sheryl was very professional and knowledgeable. She did a tremendous job at making unfamiliar concepts and terminology easily accessible and understandable for a first time home buyer. If you want to be treated with the utmost respect and be represented by a top of the line realtor who knows the Pittsburgh market, then I would highly recommend Sheryl Florio for your real estate needs!
I have had 5 transactions over the past few years with Sheryl Florio of Berkshire Hathaway
Home Services, The Preferred Realty. With every transaction, she was knowledgeable,
professional and determined to do what was best for us. She persevered through every sale to
get the job done. These listings were not the easiest to sell, but Sheryl was determined to find
a buyer for each one. I always felt I was in good hands with Sheryl as my Realtor. She went
above and beyond!
This has been a time filled with many emotions for me in deciding to sell my home and purchase another. When I found the property that you helped me purchase I new it was the right place for me to make my new home. You were patient, kind , compassionate, professional and really seemed to understand where I was coming from. I really appreciate all the assistance you gave my son & myself In purchasing the property. I have told all my friends about you and how helpful you have been through the entire process. Hope you’ll stop by when the house is done.
Thank you again,
Sheryl was recommended to me by a friend when I needed an agent fairly quickly. Within minutes after I contacted her we were on the phone discussing the specifics of what I was looking for. Sheryl was always available day and night to answer any questions I had, to keep me informed on the progress of my home purchase, and to make sure the entire process went off without a hitch. I couldn’t have asked for a smoother home buying process. Whether you are buying or selling (or both), I would recommend Sheryl to anyone looking for a great real estate agent. I’m definitely thankful that she was recommended to me!
You're doing great work and other agents are talking about it. Here's what they're saying:
"Sheryl, thank you for being so organized! This helped the transaction flow so smoothly!"
Sheryl Florio, Honor Society
The following agent from our office was honored at the Annual Awards Banquet yesterday. Please join me in congratulating her:
At the beginning of 2020 my husband and I started searching for our first home. We quickly realized the market was moving way too fast and we needed some assistance. We came across Sheryl and couldn't be more thankful. Sheryl made such a stressful process essentially stress free. In just a few short weeks Sheryl helped us find and close on our dream home. No matter what time of the day, Sheryl was always very responsive and we really appreciated her dedication to her clients. We highly recommend it for anyone looking for a house in the North Hills area to contact Sheryl! - Taylor and Mark
Thank you again so much for everything you’ve done for us with selling our home. Bryan mentioned you asked if we could write a testimonial of our experience. I’m happy to do so and please let us know if we can do anything else!!
From the start of the selling process, Sheryl took care of us! She was professional and helped us step by step in the decisions we had when listing our home. The pandemic and the restrictions PA had in place for real estate initially delayed our timeline and when we wanted to list our home. Sheryl gave us peace of mind with her expertise and learning what was to come with real estate transactions when the restrictions were lifted. She was thorough in her communication with us and she listed our home the minute real estate opened back up in Allegheny county. Sheryl fights for her sellers and she is intentional with the work she does. We relocated across the country and Sheryl took care of our home while we were under contract. I never once doubted her work or the information she gave us. We accepted an offer within two days of our listing and the sale of our home could not have been a smoother process. Sheryl’s knowledge and passion for real estate, servant heart and strong work ethic were contributing factors into this smooth process! We could not be happier with our experience with Sheryl as our listing agent.
Bryan and Cynthia
I just want to let you know how much I appreciate the time and effort you put in to facilitate the recent sale of my home.
I know that this type of transaction can run into many roadblocks, even under the best conditions. I was very concerned that the Covid restrictions would make the whole process that much more difficult.
However, your experience, expertise and calm demeanor helped keep my stress level to a minimum. You assisted me every step of the way, and enabled the sale to go through quickly and without a hitch.
I will gladly recommend you to anyone that I know who is in need of a real estate agent.
Thank you so much,
Thank you so much for the incredible feedback…Sheryl truly is an agent that I am proud to have on my team! All too often, feedback is only provided when something goes wrong. You taking the time to share your wonderful experience with me is a true testament to not only Sheryl’s ability as an agent, but her character as well. Thank you again and welcome to Pittsburgh!
Sheryl Florio is the best in the business of Pittsburgh real estate. Sheryl made the process of buying our first home comfortable, clear and concise. Throughout the whole process, we were so happy with how attentive Sheryl was to our needs, and how dedicated she was to finding us our ideal home. Sheryl is extremely knowledgeable and professional - I would recommend her to anyone looking for a new home. It is because of Sheryl’s hard work that my fiancé and I now own our dream home!
“No one knows Pittsburgh and it’s residential real estate better than Sheryl Florio. I had a dream of what my first home would look like, I explained it to Sheryl and she found it for me. Sheryl and Berkshire Hathaway made my purchase go smoothly and stress free. I would recommend Sheryl and BS to any of my closest friends and family and will definitely be using their services again for myself Thanks, Sheryl!”
About four months ago I finally decided it was time for me to downsize. Then I had the decision of choosing a realtor. Berkshire Hathaway has a reputation second to none and when it came time to pick a agent my choice was easy. I knew of Sheryl as she had sold a number of homes I knew of.
She went over all the necessary information and was sensitive as to exactly what I wanted. It was never a problem for her to show me something in the evening or on a Sunday morning.
The perfect house was an early find, and at first unattainable but Sheryl kept telling me the seller was still interested. Finally an agreement was reached and in no time at all Sheryl had all the paperwork ready. My inspections went smoothly as she had recommended contractors that were good and reliable.
The closing process was much less stressful than I would have imagined. Sheryl’s preparation was flawless.
I am now in the process of selling my home that was entirely too large for me, and I am confident that Sheryl will handle the sale with the expertise of the professional she is
Sheryl was outstanding to say the absolute least!
Our hearts were set on a particular home and we were so hoping it would work out. Sheryl went above and beyond to work consistently with the seller and even the sellers agent to make it all work out for us. She really made the whole process so easy and seem less for us and we couldn’t have been more grateful ?? Thank you for all that you did for us in getting us our first home ??
We have been fortunate to have worked with Sheryl over many years. Not only have we sold houses with Sheryl, but have purchased as well.
She has always been professional in her manner and responsibilities as serving as our representative. When we needed special attention during a transaction, Sheryl was right there aiding us through the process.
We relied on Sheryl’s suggestions when readying our house for sale; and were appreciative of her evaluations of properties as we searched for a new home.
We would highly recommend Sheryl. Over the years she has become a trusted ally in real estate and a valued friend.
My fiancé and I purchased our first home in March of last year. As first time home buyers, we were completely inexperienced and overwhelmed when we started this process. Sheryl made this process exciting and almost effortless for us. She never left any of our questions unanswered and always responded promptly. She always put our wants and needs first and we could not have found the most perfect first home without her. From the moment you meet her, you can just tell how much she truly cares for and respects her clients. We can’t thank her or recommend her enough! If you or someone you know is looking to sell or purchase a home contact Sheryl Florio. You will not be disappointed.
Buying a house is stressful and scary...unless you are working with Sheryl Florio. My husband and I started our journey with Sheryl at the beginning of 2018. The market was crazy...Houses were being scooped up extremely quick. Every text, call, email we sent was responded to with lightening speed! Sheryl is professional, caring, respectful and amazingly knowledgeable! She made every step of the process go quickly and as smoothly as possible.
We closed on our dream home in april and we couldnt be happier!! Working with Sheryl is working with family...she has your best interests at heart and goes above and beyond from start to finish!!! We were truly blessed to have her!!
My husband kept saying "I dont know what we would do without Sheryl"... she really put him at ease!!!
Sheryls work speaks for itself...she has a heart of gold and we will be forever grateful for everything that she has done for us.

I had the pleasure of working with Sheryl last year as my listing agent. No challenge is too much for Sheryl ! She is extremely knowledgeable, reachable and hard-working. Her outgoing personality and friendly disposition add to her traits in making a great Agent.
I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an Agent !
My husband and I used Sheryl Florio to list one of our rental properties in Verona. Sheryl was very professional. She staged the house beautifully and composed a great booklet of the house. The house was sold and all details were taken care of in a timely manor. I would highly recommend Sheryl and we will definitely use her services again. Linda L.
Sheryl Florio is an absolute gem in the real estate industry. My attorney referred her to me knowing she is among the best in the business. She goes way above and beyond what her job entails. Since I lived out of state from the home I was selling, Sheryl stepped in and helped me in regards to coordinating appointments, giving professional advice, and physically being at the property when I could not. The turnaround of this home was a quick and smooth transaction thanks to all of her hard efforts. I would hire her again in a heartbeat and will refer her to all my friends and family.

My wife Amanda, our 15-month-old daughter Jossi, and I have just moved into our new home in the North Hills. I felt compelled to take a moment to recognize our realtor, Sheryl Florio, for her efforts to give us a buying experience that far exceeded our expectations. The move from Philadelphia to here had a ton of moving pieces. It could have been very stressful considering we were simultaneously selling and buying, I was starting a new job, and we were 5+ hours away at any given time. With Sheryl's help, the experience was not only less stressful than I expected; it was fun. First and foremost, her professionalism, knowledge of the area, and willingness to hustle are second to none. On top of this, she demonstrated a genuine personal investment in our success as buyers and our long-term happiness with our purchase. I wanted to list out just a few specific examples where Sheryl truly impressed our family. *Organized, motivated service excellence:* With less than 2 days notice, Sheryl was able to schedule 18 showings for us on the one day we were able to get to Pittsburgh in person. She met us first thing in the morning, and personally drove us to each property over the course of more than 12 hours. Sheryl even scheduled the day so she could treat my wife and I to lunch as well. *Always available and always helpful:* I can think of no less than 10 instances where I was calling and/or texting Sheryl well before 7am and well after 11pm regardless of the day of the week or even if it was a holiday. Even when the issue or question was out of her hands or not readily rectifiable, Sheryl always gave her commitment to do everything in her power to make sure she protected our interests and made things as painless as possible. *Positioning us for strength:* The home we purchased was very desirable, and the sellers had a realtor who (for a number of reasons) did not always seem to prioritize our requests. Sheryl demonstrated professional tenacity, tact, and candor that allowed us to keep the sellers and their realtor focused and responsive. If we needed an answer, Sheryl got it. If we had a request, Sheryl saw to it our position was represented in the best possible way. *A future neighbor and friend:* With all the time we spent we Sheryl, both my wife and I agree that we consider her to be our very first friend in our new life here. Sheryl is congenial, intelligent, and fun. I consider myself to be a great judge of character, and I have a knack for sensing when someone is being disingenuous. From the moment Sheryl (promptly) contacted us from our referring agent I felt that we had a realtor who was trustworthy, competent, and talented. We look forward to running into Sheryl in and around our new hometown. I would recommend Sheryl Florio with the highest degree of confidence to a family member, friend, or anyone who is in the market for real estate.
As a young couple looking for our first house together, we imagined it to be a stressful process; but it was anything but that. I've known Sheryl for years so when I was in the market for a house, I knew exactly who to call. She immediately set me up on the portal which sent me new houses anytime they were added. I was constantly checking to find the perfect house. We viewed multiple houses with Sheryl and she always accommodated our busy schedules. When viewing, she would throughly tell us about the house and things that would stick out to her that could be a problem which a younger couple would not want to deal with as well as things she loved about the house. The day we found our perfect house, Ben and I were thrilled. We knew it was the one and Sheryl could not have been any happier for us. We had tons of questions on what the next step was and about closing and she always went out of her way to explain everything for us. I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling their house.
Contrary to media reports, home values in Pittsburgh are steady - far above the national average. In fact, locally our average sales price has increased over last year. If your are thinking of selling your home there is really no better time and no better place than Western Pennsylvania.
We would be happy to show you what your home is worth in today's market.
