Cheri moved to Rappahannock County in 1974 to be closer to nature and to enjoy a more stress free and rewarding life. She has lived in Sperryville for over 46 years and has developed a deep knowledge of the land and people of Rappahannock. Buying and selling real estate has always been an integral part of Cheri’s life. She has a long history of volunteering, and when she’s not selling real estate, Cheri can usually be found working with one of her favorite non-profits. Her passion and work ethic are evident in all that she does. It is no wonder that she is the leading Realtor in the area.
Swimming and Biking are my Favorites
There is no better way to clear my head than a morning bike ride up Nethers Road. We have a 20-acre lake on our farm with clean, beautiful water. My perfect summer day is a morning ride and a dive into the lake for a swim to cool off.
I’ve worked for myself since 1975, wearing many different hats. I have independently started up five businesses, including a herb and antique shop, a major catalog retailer, an art gallery, and my own Real Estate Company. I love new challenges!
I enjoy growing all sorts of plants but herbs are my passion. Years ago when I owned Faith Mountain Herbs and Antiques, I grew herbs for Patrick O’Connell, chef of the renowned Inn at Little Washington.

Cheri Woodard's Customers
Cheri and her staff were great in helping us find a wonderful property. As we were interested in not only the house, but also the property, we appreciated that Cheri and her team were willing to hike and mule with us through cold weather and rugged woods, and were able to provide information about the ‘neighborhoods’ we saw. And Cheri seems to know everyone in the county, so she helped us pick the nicest neighbors as well!- Joyce and Mike W.
We just wanted to let you know how happy we are when we come out to the property; it was the perfect place for us – thank you again for all of your help in getting us here.- Stuart G.
We recently completed a challenging purchase with Cheri as our representative and we can could not have been more pleased with her professionalism and diligence. These traits also extend to her entire team including her husband and fellow broker, Martin, who offered invaluable insight throughout the purchase. Our transaction was difficult on many levels because it was an civil-war era home that needed repairs. The due diligence process was long and arduous but Cheri was patient and had a great sense of when to hold firm on issues and when to relent on those that were not so critical. She is a seasoned and savvy negotiator who understands that a win-win mindset more often gets the deal done.
Several times over the last few years we tried unsuccessfully to either go it alone or use an out-of-town broker for representation and every time those deals were lost. We learned our lesson the hard way and decided we needed a local expert with deep ties to the community and a wealth of local knowledge. I am convinced that the only way we were able to complete our deal was through Cheri’s outstanding relationships with the local professionals who touched the transaction. From the home inspector to the lender to the myriad of contractors she helped coordinate, it was apparent to us that everyone appreciated and respected her straightforward and professional approach and ability to get deals done. Most importantly to us, she does what she says she will do and she does it well, while always keeping her clients fully informed and their best interests at heart. Honesty and forthright communication are too often lacking in real estate transactions and we can confidently say that Cheri considers these as basic tenets of her business and because of this it is no surprise that she has been so successful. We unequivocally and wholeheartedly recommend Woodard Realty to anyone considering a transaction in Rappahannock County or the surrounding area.- G. and N. R.
Having bought and sold many homes over the past few decades, we can easily say that working with Cheri Woodard was the best agent experience we have had. Cheri was available when we needed her and stayed in constant communication with us throughout the process. She was professional, reliable and honest. Her knowledge of the local market and negotiating skills ensured us the best offer for our home. And did I mention results? We had multiple offers shortly after listing!- Sharon and Scott W.
Cheri, thank you so much for all your help in selling my property. I really appreciate your kindness and all the extra steps you took to help me with this long distance sale. Thank you! All the best!- Cindy C.
