Sherry obtained the Certified Sales Professional Designation from the National Association of Home Builders early in her career with Drees Custom Homes. “I’ve always considered continuing education not only important, but imperative to being the best I can be,” she stresses.
Sherry believes her designation adds credibility to her business and takes special pride in holding a designation specific to sales and marketing from the building industry. “My customers always ask what CSP stands for, and when I tell them, they seem to acknowledge the significance and are happy to work with someone who continues to study.”
She selected the CSP designation when she first started selling homes for Drees. "I wanted to learn all I could about selling new homes and become the best I could be.” Sherry has been a valued member of the Dallas BA since 1999 and has held her designation since 2007.
She has been a board member of the Sales & Marketing Council for the past three years—currently the chair—and served on the McSAM Awards Committee. Her professional honors and awards are many, including Rookie of the Year Award in 2000, the Million Dollar Circle Award each year while in sales, and in 2015 she was awarded the Drees’ Top Caliber Award for outstanding performance.
What Sherry enjoys most about Drees, which she joined in 1999, is being a part of a team of caring people committed to helping its customers achieve their dreams of owning new custom designed homes. “It's exciting to me to listen to my customers as they describe their wish list, then to get to be a part of the process and see the end result – the home they always wanted.”
Sherry graduated summa cum laude from Le Tourneau University with a bachelor of science degree in business management in 1996 and was inducted into membership of Alpha Sigma Lambda the same year. A native Texan, she grew up in Irving in a family of builders and developers.
Sherry loves spending her free time with her husband, John, her three adult children, seven grandchildren and, of course, her "fur babies," Mitzi and Beau. Her special passion is being involved in her church and outreach programs, especially in music and volunteering at area senior facilities.
