Cheryl Hunt’s path to becoming a Real Estate Professional in Las Vegas, Nevada has been full of adventure and hard work all while harnessing a strong entrepreneurial spirit. Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, Cheryl and her husband moved to the coastal city of Durban KwaZulu Natal where in her early twenties she entered the world of real estate, building and owning two homes. During this time Cheryl honed her people and business skills, becoming the youngest award-winning sales representative for Nampak Tissue. She then transitioned into the medical world as Hospital Representative for Smith and Nephew, earning her the distinguished title of National SalesPerson of The Year. She also spent time at Pharmacia and Upjohn selling pharmaceuticals to doctors before moving back to Johannesburg as Marketing Manager of a telemedicine company.
Diving into real estate once again, Cheryl and her husband built another home before taking a leap of faith - buying and running a coffee shop for a number of years. It was during this period of her life that Cheryl combined her years of experience and unique skill set to become a realtor for Vered Real Estate. Quickly achieving ‘Rookie of the Year’ and recognized by her peers with multiple sales awards, Cheryl realized she had found her true calling. With three years of consistent success under her belt, Cheryl opened her own brokerage, PropertyHunt Realtors, which she grew successfully over an eight year period.
Emigrating to the US in 2008, Cheryl found Las Vegas to be the perfect environment to restart her real estate career in a thriving economy full of opportunities. In 2016, Cheryl took her knowledge and skills to Keller Williams and sold $2 million in her first year, increasing sales year after year. In July 2019, Cheryl made the decision to move on to Synergy Sotheby’s International Realty, excited to employ the Sotheby’s brand and vast marketing reach to assist buyers and sellers from both the US and overseas. Her approach of “property is my product, and people are my business” felt congruent with the values and standards Synergy Sotheby’s International Realty upholds in their interactions with their clients. With an innate ability to understand and solve people's problems, combined with an approachable, down-to-earth persona and whip-smart business acumen it’s no surprise why Cheryl is so successful at what she does, and Synergy is happy to welcome Cheryl to their team of dynamic, hard-working agents.
Cheryl has been married for 25 years and is a proud mother of two girls, the oldest of which just graduated from UNLV. During her free time, you can find Cheryl out on the lake paddle boarding, taking in a few rounds of golf, hiking, or getting lost in a good book.
