“We are so fortunate to have met Cheryl at an open house when we first started looking for our home in Uptown. She listened to our needs, was always available through phone, text, or email, very professional … She is a natural at realty and well recommended in her field. We were told by the seller’s realtor, our offer was accepted over others on our home as Cheryl would successfully get the job done. Will definitely work with her in the future!”

Helping Others

Cheryl and Daughter_optBefore and throughout her career in real estate, Cheryl has been committed to serving communities. Her first years in New Orleans were spent at Newcomb College and Tulane University, where she received a B.A. in psychology and a Master’s of Education in early childhood emotional disturbances. With these degrees, she became the educational director of a residential treatment program for emotionally disturbed boys. While living in Florida, Cheryl served as chair of the Sarasota County Education Committee, a member of the Education Committee of Florida State, a volunteer for the Holiday Project at various nursing homes, and co-founder of the Cuddler Program at Sarasota Memorial Hospital, which was created to provide needed care to newborns. In recognition of her service, Cheryl was nominated as Sarasota Woman of the Year and chosen to bear the Olympic Torch in Sarasota in 1996. Since then, Cheryl has continued to give back by donating a portion of every closing, as well as an annual holiday gift, to organizations chosen by her clients.

At home in New Orleans

Cheryl came to New Orleans as a college student and instantly fell in love with its eclectic culture and rich sense of community. After living in 5 states and visiting cities around the world, she decided there’s no other place like it on earth, and she moved back so that she could raise her child in a city as vibrant and diverse as their family. Today, Cheryl, her daughter Nola, and their labradoodle Sunny live in the neighborhood of City Park, just a few blocks from Bayou St. John. Outside of real estate, Cheryl spends her time enjoying everything the city has to offer — attending plays and poetry slams at local theaters, checking out the art at NOMA, the Ogden, and the Contemporary Arts Center, grabbing a bite at her favorite restaurants, and listening to the sound of the tugboats drifting in from the Mississippi River at night.
