Chris and Sherry

We can help you navigate creating a home ~~ No matter what your family dynamic looks like

Getting married for the second time is not for the faint of heart. We had three kids under 6. We both worked full time. Chris had one daughter and I had a daughter and a son.  We also have a daughter together. It took a while, but we have created the home where we want to be. . . it took organization, a landscape plan, living through a remodel and trying to raise four happy kids.

We made many mistakes but feel grateful that we never lost ourselves by  taking our eye off of our goals.

Chris originally graduated from UCLA, had a couple of Master’s Degrees in Psychology and Special Education and started his career in Education. I met him after he had decided to try his hand at business and opened a franchise restaurant. His involvement in this led to an opportunity to work on the corporate side of the business and he began a 30-year career in charge of restaurant operations.

Chris has always had a creative eye, loves the outdoors and working outside. This led him to first designing our own 1/2 acre yard and then being interested in all types of landscaping.

Another hobby that Chris found later in life is oil painting. He takes pictures with an iphone, transfers them to a TV monitor and paints from there.

Sherry loves learning, organizing and teaching.  After obtaining her Paralegal Credential at UCI, she had a 15-year career as a Family Law Paralegal. This is where she developed her love of organization– not only in the office but in working with clients and the court required documents.

After the kids were grown and out of the house she was able to explore career options which led to completing her Bachelor Degree in Psychology. The combination of family law and working with clients in life changing decisions led to her interest in real estate. She loves every aspect of working with people in organizing lives and making sure that you know what you have and delete the things that have no meaning. That can translate into buying or selling a home, knowing your financial picture, home office paperwork and setting up your small business. How many times have you found you ordered double the office supplies you need?

Sherry will go over your budget line by line to make sure you are not surprised when the water heater needs to be replaced or you live through slow income months.

Your small business deserves to grow with intention and purpose. Sometimes it takes organizing the files and client lists to get a full picture of your goal.  My mantra for budget, location, future needs and family fun can also apply to your small business idea.

Our home reflects the work it took to create the place where everyone loves to be.

Our family is a great gift to the two of us. We appreciate what it took to get here.
