About Sheryl Allen

I find it very important to make house hunting a fun but professional experience.

My Background

Sheryl Allen RealtorI grew up in West Bloomfield Michigan and attended Michigan State University where I obtained my bachelor degree in Medical Technology with specialization in Chemistry. I moved to Sandy, Utah and worked at the University of Utah medical center. After living there for four and a half years, I moved to Illinois and lived in Buffalo Grove and raised my children. We relocated to Plymouth, Minnesota and enjoyed that experience for four and a half years where I worked on Medical market research.

My last and final move was back to Illinois where I lived in Buffalo Grove and worked part time at night as the evening secretary at the Coldwell Banker (Prudential) Buffalo Grove office in town center. I enjoyed the profession so much that I decided to get my license. I have worked for Coldwell Banker for 15 years, joining the Vernon Hills office seven years ago, and the Vernon Hills and Libertyville office merging five years ago.

I have been on both ends of the relocation process and have a vast understanding of the emotions involved in moving. My moves have provided me with the ability to provide my own examples of my experiences and allow me to relate them to my clients.

I have three fabulous grown children and I am a grandma.

Now licensed in Florida too

I often think awards are overrated, since the most important result is one satisfied happy client at a time.
