Whether assisting agents new to the industry, experienced agents in refreshing their outlook or educating buyers/sellers in what could be their biggest investment, it’s all done with the desire to help others. Her path to “servant leadership” began when she joined the military at age eighteen and has continued throughout her life. Partnering with Fathom Realty is definitely one of the best decisions Cheryl’s made in her career. Being allowed to continue to help agents create legacies and clients realize their dream of being a homeowner or an investor, she feels like she’s definitely found her fit.
