Cheryl O'Rourke


Cheryl O’Rourke has over 20 years experience personally assisting buyers and sellers in the northern suburbs of Chicago. With over 300 sold homes and 175 million in sales, Cheryl has earned a place in the top 1% of listing agents in Glenview. Her spotless reputation has been forged by decades of excellent customer service, in-depth market knowledge and a knack for matching families with their dream homes. Whether you're a first-time home buyer in search of the perfect house, a seller looking to downsize or an investor looking for a great opportunity, working with Cheryl can make all the difference.

For sellers, Cheryl completes a comprehensive market evaluation and performs a home assessment in order to make aesthetic and staging recommendations. Her expertise will ensure that the property shows at its best and can earn top-dollar. She uses a proven mix of traditional and digital methods of marketing to garner maximum visibility and interest. That combined with her exceptional negotiation skills is why many sellers refuse to work with anyone else.

Cheryl learns all the needs of her buyers and shares insights that only someone with her experience can offer. She knows that buying a home is more than just a transaction, it's where you live your life and raise your family. She often hears buyers say things like,  “We’d love a neighborhood with lots of kids,” or “I want to be near shops and restaurants where I can take my dog.” Cheryl always knows just the areas to recommend based on her buyers’ specific needs. Insights like these won’t be found on a listing sheet or in the MLS. Cheryl’s extensive neighborhood knowledge makes her an indispensable partner when it comes to purchasing a home. This is why many refer to her as “Your Neighborhood Expert.” Once Cheryl understands her buyers’ goals, she effectively analyzes the local market and target trends to find the perfect home at the right price.

Cheryl and her husband Tom have raised four children in Glenview. When Cheryl isn’t poring over market data or assisting her buyers and sellers, she stays very involved with the local community. Cheryl regularly volunteers with Sister Paulanne’s Needy Family Fund and is active in the OLPH Womens Club. If you’re looking for a highly experienced realtor with a personal touch call Cheryl today.

"Cheryl was both our selling and buying agent. Her great attention to detail and prompt availability allowed us to sell our townhome in less than a month! Being a first timer selling our home, she answered all questions and walked us through the entire process smoothly as being primary point person. Cheryl is a wonderful friendly agent and goes above and beyond to make sure a stressful process happens seamlessly as if she was in our shoes. She was also able to help solve problems during rocky times for both handling the sellers and buyers. Her knowledge of the market allowed us to quickly find our new home that was exactly what we were looking for in a short period of time. She is responsive and follows up in a timely manner. We highly recommend her and would work together again without a doubt on all our future home buying and selling."

"Having to sell a house is one thing, having to do so from 1100 miles away is quite another. I could not be more pleased with the job Cheryl did for us. Of all the agents available, we were truly blessed to have met and worked with her. I have dealt with many professionals in my life and they all just seem to focus on the job. Cheryl acted from her heart and the results far exceeded our expectations. My family and I will be forever grateful ."

"We found Cheryl to be extremely professional, competent, experienced and helpful. She was very engaged and vested in the critical task of selling our house and we were successful in selling the house within a reasonable period of time and at a price that we were pleased with. "

"Cheryl was a wonderful agent who helped us through our second home purchase. First off, she got to know our needs and found us a great house in very short order. Then, a number of issues came up during the process, and she helped guide us through them, being a primary point of contact for all our questions. I can safely say, without her expert guidance we would not have completed the purchase we ended up making. I can not recommend her highly enough."
