Hello…. Welcome to our site! We’re Allen and Cheryle Griffin with Lyon Real Estate. What makes us different from the rest of the pack? Experience and market insight. We’ve been producing results in our industry for over 21 years, have an incredible marriage of over 24 years and our working relationship is collaborative and teamwork focused. Our teamwork approach has afforded us to market and sell over 1300 properties in the last 10 years – that’s over 1300 successfully closed sales that we marketed, negotiated and most importantly, closed… Experience, check!
When it comes to the sale or purchase of your home, you need someone who is knowledgeable of our region’s market nuances. We are natives of the Sacramento Region and we’ve been practicing real estate together since 1998. We understand the market. You’ll also need someone who is well versed on the pitfalls of buying and selling a home and with our transactional experience, we can provide insight on the next move before you need to make it. Insight, check!
We’ve been bestowed almost every major production award in our industry, including being nationally ranked for production and sales volume… But seriously, does that really matter to you, probably not! What probably matters to you is if we can listen and truly make your desires and needs a reality. I bet we can… Aside from being very driven, we’re optimistic and make things happen! And because we’ve produced so much, in 2014 we took a new approach to our real estate business, in the words and advice of Jerry Maguire, “Fewer clients, more personal attention.” We’re not after EVERY ONE’S business, only those that really want to achieve their real estate goals and can appreciate amazing service and results.
What these pages will tell you is that we have the experience and qualifications to get the job done; however, what these pages won't convey is our love, drive, and passion for serving our clients. This is something that an email or written word doesn't do very well but it's the reason we get up every day and it's the reason we’ve been so blessed with such success in our real estate business. Personal relationships are everything!
Our philosophy about real estate is that we’re here to help two parties (buyer and seller) find each other and complete a transaction with a minimum of fuss and headache. We DO NOT believe in beating up the other party just because we're on opposing teams. Selling and/or buying a home is an emotional experience and we don't believe it is in the best interest of either party to make the other feel bullied or abused. Some real estate agents feel it's their job to intimidate us and/or our client and they seem to thrive on unnecessary confrontation. We believe this is counterproductive to the basic desires of both parties to sell or to buy. We’re advocates for our clients. Our job is to obtain the best price, terms, and conditions for OUR client. We’re expert negotiators and have an exceptional reputation in the industry for making things happen with all parties still intact at the end of the transaction. Please don't mistake our kindness for weakness. The "good will" approach has served our clients very well throughout the years. Your real estate agent should not get in the way!
Our synergy is infectious. We’re very positive and social people. Our hobbies include good food, good wine, and great friends… in addition, we’re fitness oriented. Allen plays ice hockey and Cheryle likes to train and run triathlons. We enjoy traveling to new places, snow skiing, water sports and loving our 3-legged rescue dog, Lucky!
We truly love what we do and that makes us passionate with a service-oriented heart.
Allen and Cheryle Griffin
