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.
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 a member of N.A.R., C.A.R., and the San Benito County Association of Realtors®. I’ve been privileged to serve the SBCAOR association in several positions over the years including:

EDUCATION and DESIGNATIONS
My continued success can be attributed to hard work and the pursuit of further education. Besides earning my Broker’s license, I hold 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. Only 3% of all Realtors® hold the CRS credential.
Helping buyers achieve their goals is one of my passions. To that end, I earned the Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) designation which is designed for enhance the skills of agents who work with buyers.
I have also earned the SFR designation. The National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource Certification program is a great resource for agents specializing in helping clients with their distressed property needs.
Sellers deserve great marketing, so one of my goals is to craft a great marketing plan that will earn great market exposure. It is my belief that marketing your home or business should be a combination of personal one-on-one service and great communication. Further, the use of high-tech tools, especially an enhanced web presence, great pictures, social media, and virtual tours are must haves.
I truly enjoy my chosen profession, and would be more than happy to work together to achieve your home selling or buying goals.
