Gotiangco Family

If you are looking in the Bethesda, and even more so in the Wildwood - Walter Johnson school district, absolutely recommend Cheryl Leahy. She has deep roots in the community, is a local resource and friend to the community (supporting local business), and is a very personable and consummate professional. Worked with Cheryl on both the buy and sell side, during which she provided sound advice, and made the transactions incredibly efficient and a very positive experience (which is saying a lot in this very stressful real estate market).


Cheryl handled the sale of my home on Jarvis Lane in Bethesda in April 2021. Her advice was instrumental in our successful transaction. Following her suggestions resulted in multiple bids. Everything was professionally handled and ran smoothly--no surprises. Cheryl's follow through is excellent. You cannot find a better agent!


Cheryl is an incredibly professional and effective realtor. She helped us sell our house in less that a week for $90,000 over asking. We got the highest ever per square foot in our Bethesda neighborhood. Her keen sense of the market and exceptional timing resulted results above our expectations. She is also a thoughtful and caring and made the experience positive. I would highly recommend her to anyone.


I have been Cheryl's neighbor in the Wildwood neighborhood for almost 30 years. Cheryl is a dedicated community builder. She has been involved in every level of making Wildwood a wonderful, clean, beautiful welcoming and inclusive place to live. I have personally watched her planting flowers in common areas, cleaning the pool house restrooms and advocating against mindless development that did not maintain the integrity of a neighborhood with a cozy small town feel. When it came time to sell our house, there was no question that I would ask Cheryl. She is extremely professional and has developed quite a team. Cheryl provided staging ,resources and guidance for getting our house to the market. I am thrilled that we got our dream price in less than a month!! Thank you Cheryl for all you do!"

Beverly H.

Cheryl went above and beyond to help my sister and me sell our childhood home in Bethesda. Our family had owned the house for over fifty years, and while we diligently tried to keep up with management of the home, there were surprises we could never have anticipated. For example, our parents had acquired a parcel of land from a neighbor in 1965 which was never recorded. We also discovered that a pipe had slowly leaked without our knowledge, that an in-ground safe was locked and inoperable, and similar issues that kept adding headaches to the process. Cheryl kept her warm and calm demeanor throughout, and was excellent at negotiation.

Buyer & Seller

Cheryl is highly effective and knowledgeable about all facets of residential real estate transactions: determining price, staging for sale, inspections, negotiation, closings. She sold two houses for me. Her recommendations for asking price were spot on: in each case, there were multiple offers within three days and we received the price we sought. Cheryl is also a fair and tough negotiator she helped me find and purchase a house and represented my interests extremely well throughout the process.


I have done three transactions with Cheryl Leahy and found her very professional. One of my deals involved a 1031 Exchange, which can be tricky but went very smoothly. She has great common sense and is willing to make suggestions to improve the ease of transactions, and I may not always agree with her suggestion at first, but have never regretted following one. I always listen when she talks, as she has a lot of value to say. I would definitely use her as my agent next time I need a realtor.

Allee & Lawrence

Cheryl is an incredible Realtor. She has helped us buy and sell several homes, starting with our first home in the DMV area and most recently helped us find and negotiate for our dream home! Cheryl is professional, knowledgeable, organized and patient. She made us feel confident and comfortable through the complex, intense, and, at times, crazy process of buying and selling a home (she even made it fun at times!). We will continue to recommend Cheryl to all our friends and family.


I've already recommended Cheryl to friends who have also been very pleased. She is very dedicated and professional. Cheryl has many years of experience so she knows how to work with clients, stage a house, make recommendations, etc. She is also very sensitive to the needs of homeowners and sellers. I would definitely use Cheryl again in the future.

Ling A.

Cheryl helped my brother and me sell our family home. She has excellent design skills and knows exactly the right colors to choose. Her staging was perfect! Following Cheryl’s advice netted us five offers in four days, in other words, a bidding war! We sold well over asking price.
