Ringing and Singing in the Rain- Sheri Sperry- A Small World After All!`

 

It’s funny about ActiveRain challenges and contests.  The best ones are designed to motivate us to do the things that would be good for us and our sheri sperrybusiness.  Well, yes, points are involved.  Of course they are!

 

So, with Debbie Reynolds Ringing and Singing in the Rain 2017 challenge, it was the opportune time to do what I’d been wanting to do for a long time...call Sheri Sperry.

 

Why?

 Besides enjoying her posts, I’d noticed in one of her comments that she’d lived in Houston, which is my home town.

 

 No Houstonian, or Texan for that matter, worth their salt would not try to connect with a fellow Texan!

 

Sheri’s family (she’s one of five children) is from Omaha.  They moved to Houston where Sheri lived until she was twelve.

___________________________________________________

*I was born in Houston and lived there until I was 37.

*Larry’s daughter is from Omaha and still lives there!

___________________________________________________

 

Sheri met her husband at Creighton University in Omaha and have been together ever since (1972).  And it is then that Sheri and her husband caught the real estate bug. They bought their first home, then got into rentals and then property management.

Sheri did property management for a relative and gained even more experience.

___________________________________________________

 

Sheri worked in temporary staffing in Southern California; I worked in permanent placement in Houston.  In fact, she was familiar with the company I worked for.

___________________________________________________

 

How did she end up in Arizona?

She and Rick vacationed in Sedona, Rick fell in love with the town and the weather, and that was that!

 

When Sheri got her license (6 years ago) she followed successful agents and noted what they did.  Smart lady!  One was on ActiveRain, and the rest is history.

 

Rick, who was with UPS, works with Sheri, primarily behind the scenes. I’ll bet many of you Agent/couples can relate to that!

 

And after three years at ActiveRain what does Sheri like best about the community?

...the articles and the way people interact with each other!

 

If you haven’t read Sheri’s posts, stop by and introduce yourself and while you’re at it, subscribe to her blog.

Kathy love it!  Sheri Sperry - MCNE® is an awesome lady and we're able to get together from time to time which is great.  Her husband is as nice as she is - and they are both very professional - and fun!

Kathy Streib - you made a strong connection with Sheri Sperry - MCNE® - she has such a bubbly personality and someone worth knowing, just like you! It's really great that the two of you have so much in common. Although we all don't have time to contact everyone here on AR, it's wonderful to read reports about Ringing in the Rain! Debbie Reynolds always puts together great contests too that afford others to continue building relationships outside of blogging.

Hi Kathy - Great choice - I also picked Sheri for this challenge, and she mentioned all of the connections you two have - and Mary was technical recruiter before getting into real estate.

Hi Patricia Feager I think that Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland has the right idea about calling a member each day.
