Get to know Cheryl! Tisland
I came to the Phoenix East Valley in 1989 and have watched the area grow and evolve. During this time I have immersed myself in all things real estate from residential sales to rentals to commercial buildings. I understand what it takes to find the right house and the process to making it home. Communication and honesty are my number one priorities in any interaction.
Prior to my career in real estate, I spent over 20 years as a Software Engineer, Software Project Manager and Principal Software Architect with a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science. This was a fun and ever evolving career that began for me in 1982 when I first began learning programming.
I had a great opportunity to create a custom program for an investment broker in 1995 who needed a program to automaticly create a CMA from COMPS (remember, prior to the info being on the internet, when the comps came in giant packets monthly or quarterly of pages and pages of homes and all of their info and sold price?). I created a program that allowed the data to be entered from the sheets, a subject property be entered, and it also calculated CAP Rate, ROI, etc. It then generated a full report to be presented to potential investors to show why the subject property was a great investment. What I learned throughout the process of writing this program led me to have a great interest in real estate.
Once the internet and websites became more common, I helped many agents and brokers create websites that incorporated listings automatically by integrating to their MLS accounts through IDX APIs. This was before there were solutions available to purchase online for automatic IDX integration for agent websites.
I began about 15 years ago to purchase property and discover my love of renovating which evolved into a love of investment property and building up a portfolio and that eventually evolved into my desire to become a licensed real estate agent and focus full time on what really excites me each day. I absolutely love working with people and discussing real estate and assisting with the process of buying, selling, and investing.
