My name is Cheryl Calhoun and I am Broker Associate with Nino Real Estate. I am a REALTOR who is dedicated to serving my clients and business associates with honesty, integrity and utmost efficiency.

I am a member of N.A.R., C.A.R., and the San Benito County Association of Realtors.

My grandfather, broker Charles J. Cordone, was a past president of the San Jose Real Estate Board which today is the Santa Clara County Association of Realtors. He encouraged me to follow my dreams, be honorable, and that you can achieve any goal as long as elbow grease is liberally applied.

I am an award winning Realtor who has served as the marketing chairperson for the San Benito County Association of Realtors for two years. I was Treasurer for the San Benito Association of Realtors for the 2003 term. Appointed to serve on the Board of Directors for the California State Association of Realtors for the year 2004, my committee appointments were: Affordable Housing, Land Use and Environmental and the MLS/Computer and Business Technology Committees. I was honored to have this opportunity. I currently sit on the Board of Directors for the San Benito County Association of Realtors.

My continued success can be attributed to hard work and the pursuit of further education. Besides earning my Broker's license, I have earned her CRS and ABR designations and have earned e-PRO certification.

Only 3% of all REALTORS have earned the prestigious CRS credential. (Council of Residential Specialists) The Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) is the highest Designation awarded to sales associates in the residential sales field. The CRS Designation recognizes professional accomplishments in both experience and education. Since 1977 the Council of Residential Specialists has been conferring the CRS Designation on agents who meet its stringent requirements.

I earned the ABR designation (Accredited Buyers Representative) to enhance my skills in assisting buyers. The ABR designation is geared toward agents who wish to enhance their buyer representation skills, and provides proof to prospective buyer-clients of their proficiency at servicing the special needs of buyers.

Real estate agents and brokers who have earned REALTOR e-PRO Certification are Internet Professionals who have completed extensive training using the Web. REALTOR e-PRO Certification means the real estate professional is prepared to employ the latest techniques and services for your benefit, just like you've grown to expect from a professional.

I believe that marketing your home or business should be a combination of personal one-on-one service as well as the use of high tech tools, especially the internet and virtual tours.

I truly enjoy my chosen profession and would be more than happy to work together to achieve your goals.
