I referred a client to Sherry for assistance with a short sale. The client called me last week and told me her short sale had closed and she was extremely happy with Sherry's representation during the process. I have had the pleasure of knowing Sherry for several years. She is extremely bright, hard-working, and aggressive. She works hard to get the best results for her clients.
