Crye-Leike, REALTORS Congratulates Affiliate Broker Sheri Bryan

RIDGELAND, MS., – Crye-Leike, REALTORS congratulates Affiliate Broker Sheri Bryan on being named among the 50 Leading Business Women of Mississippi for 2009 by the Mississippi Business Journal.  She is a licensed Realtor based out of the company’s Ridgeland, Mississippi branch office located at 731 Pear Orchard Road.


“To me, being named among the top 50 proves that if you’re willing to work hard enough, you can start over at any age in a career and be successful,” said Sheri.  “With all the successful business women in Mississippi, to have been named among such a list of accomplished professional women is an honor.”


After many years in sales? it was in the winter of 2005 Sheri looked to real estate as a way to experience higher level of personal growth, professional success and financial freedom.  With no previous experience selling homes she took the Mississippi real estate exam and within two years she was a member of the Multi-Million Dollars Sales Producer Club.


“One family member, my brother-in-law Mark Jordan, assured me that the reason I would be successful was that my strong work ethic would enable me to outwork most others in my profession,” said Sheri.  “Turns out, he was right.  I’m also very indebted to my parents for teaching me to have a strong work ethic, always following the golden rule and being punctual and reliable.”


Prior to her career in real estate, Sheri was a sales representative for Arbonne International. In the mid-1990’s she received Arbonne’s national President’s Award for her sales production and community service. In the early 2000’s she worked with Atlanta based Maggie Mae’s Showroom that had her traveling a four-state region selling jewelry and accessories.  In real estate sales Sheri first joined Bailey-Breland Realtors and within a couple of years moved to Crye-Leike where from 2006 to just recently she served as the company’s Ridgeland branch Managing Broker.


“Today’s real estate sales market is the most challenging that the industry has seen in decades,” said Sheri.  “We have to work extra hard right now not only at selling but also to do everything that we can to get the house to closing.”


Sheri’s work ethic and “client focused” approach to her business clearly makes an impression.  Lauren McGraw, a member of the 50 Women’s five-person Advisory Committee who also just happens to be one of Sheri’s clients, nominated her for the Top 50 honor.


“The past two years have been difficult for many of my clients, and ironically it was one of my clients who nominated me for this honor,” said Sheri.  “It reinforced my belief that if you work hard the client does notice.”


Sheri is a licensed Realtor in Mississippi assisting buyers and sellers in and around Madison, Rankin and Hinds counties.  She is a Certified Relocation Associate (CRA), REALTOR Institute (GRI) and holds a Certification in New Home Construction.  Sheri works all types of residential real estate sales with a focus on new home construction and investment properties.


“One of the keys to being a good agent that I have learned is knowing that time is of the essence – and that returning calls promptly is of critical importance,” said Sheri. “Continuing Education and knowing the market are also very important to me.”


Sheri is a member of the Jackson Association of Realtors (JAR), Mississippi Association of Realtors (MAR) and National Association of Realtors (NAR).  She is a member and 2008 President of membership, 2009 President-Elect of the Jackson Chapter of the Women’s Council of Realtors (WCR) and a member of the Crye-Leike Multi-Million Dollar Sales Club.


“I am so thankful for the experience I gain from my association with Crye-Leike,” said Sheri.  “At Crye-leike we have sales meetings every week where we learn about changes in real estate law and home financing and we talk about our listings with our colleagues.”
