Realtor Cherie Hoffman wants one thing: to get clients into their dream homes.
“It’s really gratifying when you see people get their dream home,” Hoffman said. “It’s exciting for me and them.”
Celebrating 16 years in the industry, Hoffman is affiliated with eXp Realty, a cloud-based brokerage. It is North America’s largest residential real estate brokerage by geography. The brokerage offers real estate professionals within its ranks opportunities to earn eXp World Holdings stock for production and contributions to overall company growth.
“It’s growing rapidly,” Hoffman said. “It’s also in Brazil, Italy, Australia, Canada, Mexico and India. When I started, there were only 18,000 agents. Now, it’s up to 60,000 to 80,000.”
Hoffman has always had a love of houses. For years, she worked in the retail supermarket industry as a health and beauty aids manager, which honed her people skills. Merging her two loves — houses and people — helped her find success.
She enjoys connecting with people, but the COVID-19 pandemic has made it difficult.
“My business is based on referrals and meeting new people,” she said. “It’s been a struggle with COVID. I’m hoping this eases sooner rather than later.”
Hoffman is also licensed in California, where she previously lived. She and her husband recently moved to Desert Hills so they could build a pool house.
“We wanted to move here,” said Hoffman, who enjoys her job’s flexibility. “For what we wanted in California, which was horse property and horses, it was too expensive.”
Hoffman’s love of horses led to her knowledge of horse property. However, she specializes in all types of residential homes.
“I love working with first-time homebuyers,” she said. “I really enjoy that. A lot of first-time homebuyers, when their family grows, they want a bigger home and then they come back to me. That’s really rewarding.”
