Sherry began selling homes in Terravita along with Del Webb from Day 1 when they opened a trailer for sales. She fondly remembers : "At that time we drove clients around in 4 wheel drive vehicles, as there were no roads or utilities pulled in to the lots. We searched for home sites in raw dirt imagining what the views would be and how the house would fit as in many cases there were no lot stakes."
"On many occasions I had college kids camping out for up to a week for clients to pick their new lot when a section would open for sales. It was great to be a part of a dream and original vision, and to see what Terravita has evolved to be. Terravita has expanded to be an Active Adult Lifestyle Community with exceptional amenities that cannot be found anywhere else in the Scottsdale or Carefree area for the value and price. Terravita is so unique as you are not just buying a home, you are buying your future lifestyle."
Count on Sherry's 20+ years of living and selling the Terravita dream. Having been a social member as well as a Golf Member, Sherry appreciates & knows everything that Terravita has to offer. Sherry's knowledge has benefited countless numbers of her clients in buying and selling Terravita homes. 30% of her business in Terravita are clients that are selling their current home to move up or size down to another Terravita home to stay in their community. "I believe that speaks volumes on how happy residents are living in Terravita", she says. Another large percentage is referrals from happy homeowners that want their friends to share the experience. "I appreciate the referrals that you pass on to me. I LOVE Terravita so therefore it makes my job exciting to be a part of bringing in new clients. Terravita is my passion. I want it to be yours too."
Ask any of Sherry's clients what they appreciate most about her, and they'll inevitably say that her warm and personal approach to her job makes working with her about more than just buying or selling a home. "The best part of my job is not just becoming your Realtor and trusted advisor but enjoying a lasting relationship beyond the sales process. I look forward to guiding you effortlessly in your buying or selling your next home!"
