Cheryl Cotney

Experienced Guide with an Entrepreneurial Flair

Why did you choose a career in real estate?

“My mother had a successful second career as a Realtor in California, but I saw how hard she worked and vowed it wasn’t for me. After attending graduate school and working for several start-ups, I saw the value of running my own business. When I began selling real estate, I was hooked. Helping people has always been a passion of mine. I enjoy the process of guiding them through the many steps of finding a home. It can be challenging at times, but I am grateful for my clients and the honor of helping them through their journey.”

How would your clients describe you?

“I believe they appreciate my ability to connect with people and my in-depth knowledge of the market. Most know me as someone who listens to their concerns and then works as their guide through the process. This is very important. A search or sale is a process, and my clients often say how thankful they are for my resources, market knowledge, and follow-through. They know my business is based on honesty and integrity. I always strive to exceed expectations and, as a professional, I don’t know any other way.”

Why did you join a team after being an individual agent for years? 

“It seemed like a natural progression after being a solo agent for 19 years. Now that I am part of the Donahue, Maley, Burns team at Compass, I am surrounded by colleagues who share the same values and philosophy. We tap into each other’s expertise while we collaborate on solutions. In addition, we bring tremendous value to our clients by offering a level of personal service and professionalism that comes from years of experience selling real estate at a top level.”
