Sheri-Lee was raised in Kansas but has two degrees from USC in Los Angeles, and has spent time working in Washington, D.C.. About 25 years ago, she made the move to the great state of Texas, where she completed her Masters in Journalism with concentrations in PR and Non-Fiction writing, from UNT. Having lived in the Mid-Cities area as long as she has been in DFW, she is an expert in the market there. To quote Sheri-Lee herself, "Between the two 35's is my world".
Before starting her career in real estate, Sheri-Lee was a fundraiser and event planner for over 20 years. Her experience in the industry helped her to become an expert in contracts of all kinds, "I understand contracts, and am not afraid to play hardball". With her affinity for contracts and a self described type A+ personality, Shari-Lee works tirelessly for her clients, to make sure they get the best deal possible.
Sheri-Lee LOVES houses, from the building process to renovations and even calls herself a "tool-belt diva"! She finds new construction very exciting and has been known to say that she "prefers the smell of sawdust to roses". Sheri-Lee encourages her clients to take her with them to see new construction homes -- before signing anything by the builder, so she can provide her expertise, making sure they get the best deal. Her love of contracts and her enthusiasm for helping her clients hunt to find just the right home, makes her a fierce agent in today's difficult market. For her clients wanting to sell their home, Sheri-Lee has an added bonus, having spent time as a professional home stager before becoming a realtor. For her veteran clients, she has an even bigger bonus, her passion and experience with VA clients:
"It is rewarding helping people accomplish their dreams, whether it's their first home, upgrading, or downsizing. All of the men in my family were military so I LOVE my Veteran clients! I am certified in Military Relocation and can even help those transferring to DFW buy a home long-distance via Zoom or Facetime walkthroughs of homes. I am a genealogy junkie and am active in my local Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). I am also senior certified and take pride in helping them figure out where they will go next and what the process looks like today."
Sheri-Lee chose to make EXIT Realty Elite her real estate home. As the second largest residential real estate company in North America, EXIT provides its agents with a hefty support system, state-of-the-art technology, and some of the best training in the business. EXIT’s intensive training system gives its agents the knowledge, skill and know-how to guide their clients smoothly through the real estate process.
