The pinnacle of my career is seeing my clients thrive here in the Valley of the Sun. There is no other place that provides the lifestyle like the high Sonoran Desert.

“The pinnacle of my career is seeing my clients thrive here in the Valley of the Sun. There is no other place that provides the lifestyle like the high Sonoran Desert,” said Cheryl.

Throughout her career, Cheryl has worked in diverse locales such as Aspen, Colorado, where she owned a Sotheby’s franchise; Seattle, where she worked as a Corporate Relocation Specialist for the Microsoft Corporation; and most recently Arizona, where she continues to be among the top 3% performing agents in Arizona for Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty with luxury residential properties sales of over $30,000,000 in 2018.

Over the last 30 years Cheryl has founded her career on providing exceptional client service during every step of their real estate journey. One of her core beliefs is “service above self interest.” This is exemplified by her long-lasting relationships with the clients she serves.

Noted clients, Rob and Linda Lanphier, “When we purchased our first Desert Mountain home, Cheryl was our Realtor. She was thoroughly professional with excellent follow through and demonstrated great understanding and knowledge regarding every detail we questioned. Her passion and energy were evident long after the paperwork was signed and she treated our countless questions and requests with enthusiasm and kindness. Cheryl is everything you’d expect from an excellent Realtor and we would recommend her to anyone looking for a Realtor that is over-the-top special.”

Cheryl’s passion for helping others transcends real estate. She personally supports many charities and is a board member of Golf Fore Africa, a charity that provides clean water to villages in South Africa and Western Zambia. She visited many villages in Zambia in 2018, and was able to see firsthand how clean water changes the lives of the people residing there.

“It means so much to me to be a part of this wonderful organization that was founded in 2007 by PGA Champion, Betsy King. In 2018, Golf Fore Africa raised $2.6 million, and to date over 200 wells, 17 large mechanize systems and a medical clinic in Rwanda have been established in Africa,” noted Cheryl.

For her charitable hard work and dedication, she was recognized as an industry icon at the 2019 RISMedia Real Estate Newsmakers Reception & Dinner, held on Thursday, May 16th, at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., celebrating her contributions to the housing industry and the communities and consumers she serves.
