Cheryl Hunt’s path to becoming a Real Estate Professional in Las Vegas, Nevada has been full of adventure, more than 20 years of sales and marketing experience and real estate experience and hard work all while harnessing a strong entrepreneurial spirit and work ethic
Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, Cheryl and her husband, a construction engineer, lived in the coastal city of Durban KwaZulu Natal, South Africa where with her passion and drive to be successful, in her early twenties she entered the world of sales and marketing. They bought a fixer upper and rehabbed the home and sold it to build their dream home at the beach, becoming passionate about real estate, architecture, building and design every day. During this time Cheryl honed her people, sales, marketing and business skills, becoming the youngest award-winning sales representative for Nampak Tissue, on the road to her dream of success. She then transitioned into the medical world as Hospital Representative for Smith and Nephew, earning her the distinguished title of National Sales Person of The Year, always driven by a strong work ethic and discipline and will to succeed. Her time at Pharmacia and Upjohn selling pharmaceuticals to doctors before moving back to Johannesburg as Marketing Manager of a telemedicine company, instilled in her ethics and keeping your word and her passion for helping others. 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 5 years. It was during this period of her life that Cheryl combined her years of sales and marketing 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 8 year period.
Emigrating to Las Vegas, US in 2008, experiencing firsthand the positives and negatives in relocation, improved her grit and courage and renewed faith and hope. 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 of Las Vegas and experiences and real estate skills to Keller Williams Realty 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 belief 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’s Sales in 2020 has now exceeded $10 million.
Cheryl has been married to her High School Sweetheart for 26 years and is a proud mother of two girls, her oldest graduated with a Degree in Psychology from UNLV. And her second is an AP Senior is at UNR to major in Pediatrics. 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 with a glass of wine.
