Cheryl is a Wake County native and the proud granddaughter of J.E. Strickland (d.1981) who was a NC real estate broker (licensed in 1957) and owner of Acme Realty Company on Hargett Street in downtown Raleigh. In keeping with the family business, she became a licensed Broker in 1982.
Being part of such a legacy and working in other employment settings centered around teaching, learning, and access, Cheryl values serving a diverse client/customer base and recognizes that it is just and right to treat every human being with decency and respect.
She has had the privilege of living in southeast and north Raleigh, Fuquay Varina, Angier and Cary…obviously, she’s a Wake County fan!
Cheryl’s also “fanatical” about taking the stress out of the real estate process and making her clients feel “right at home.”
