Business Philosophy -Old Fashioned Down Home Service
Raised as a military brat, graduated high school in Virgina, then went to University of Oklahoma to study Business and Management Information Systems. I liked their football team what can I say. Graduated in 4 yrs and followed my father's foot steps into the Air Force where I spent 6 years and left as a Captain in Procurement and Logistics. One of the best decisions I ever made in my life because of the experience and confidence I gained during this time. Of course California will never be the same since I was there. Met my fabulous husband in Reno working for Arrow Electronics (largest electronics distributor) and after a couple of different corporate moves, we CHOSE to move to Minnesota to be close to my family, be able to afford a home and raise a family with solid midwest values. We've been here since 1996 and have loved it ever since. Stayed in the electronics industry until 2005. Joined Coldwell Banker Burnet in 2003. Sold homes for a couple of years part time and realized I found my calling. It's like a drug, I can't get enough. I love everything real estate, and am grateful I found my calling early in life. My core career/real estate values are: Keep it Simple, Do things face to face even in a world of technology, Tell it like is honesty, Hard Working, Committed to your cause whether it's buying, selling, or leasing, getting involved in schools and the community, and establishing friends for life, not just the transaction.

After graduating from the University of Oklahoma, Cheryl went immediately into the Air Force and served 6 years as a Contracting Officer, managing purchasing teams and sourcing government contracts. Using her purchasing experience, she entered the electronics field and became a multi-location logistics manager, handling purchasing to stocking and setting up processes that are still in place today. Upon moving to MN in 1996 to be closer to her family, Cheryl and her new husband settled into Minnetonka and gave electronic sales a try. She started in inside sales and was promoted to outside sales shortly thereafter. With confidence and success of working for someone else, Cheryl combined her love for real estate with making it on her own. Still in the business through the downturn is a testament to her integrity, work ethic, and refusal to never give up. This is an ever changing industry and Cheryl has managed to continue blaze the trail and be on the cutting edge of the market, the technology, and ways to buy and sell homes.
