For Sherry Mello, communication is key. Previously a professional event planner and C-level Executive Assistant, her invaluable experience and expert communication skills have helped both buyers and sellers alike ensure that deals are executed seamlessly. “My philosophy as an agent is to connect with my clients,” she says. “It is extremely important to understand their needs and listen to their concerns.”
Sherry’s focus on communication and her expertise in the Delray Beach and Palm Beach County markets have made her a particularly helpful resource for out-of-town buyers who may be unfamiliar with the market and, in some cases, searching for the perfect home remotely. “I have scheduled many Zoom calls to show buyers exactly what is available based on their specific criteria, and I dive into the statistics of the local areas,” she says. Her primary goal is to make sure buyers can make the most informed decision possible based on data and updates regarding the current market.
Due to the scarcity of vacant land in Delray Beach and Palm Beach County, many projects start with the tear down of an older bungalow home that’s then replaced with a new luxury home. Sherry’s connections with many of the top luxury home builders in the area means she’s one of the first local agents to learn of upcoming projects in the market and can advise both out-of-town and local buyers alike on the details far in advance. This is an immense advantage for buyers in South Florida’s fast-moving market.
Born in New Orleans, Sherry moved to Colorado in 2005 where she met her husband, they built a beautiful home, and enjoyed the active outdoor lifestyle of skiing, snowboarding, and cycling. Ultimately, they decided the beach and warm weather were more their style and moved to Delray Beach. Now, Sherry and her husband enjoy warm weather and an active lifestyle every day of the year, and love that the ocean is just a short golf cart ride away.
