Cheryl O'Rourke


Cheryl O’Rourke has over 20 years of 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. 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.
