When Sherry Fontenot is following her passions, she commits to them one hundred percent. That’s exactly how she ended up at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate. She had informally been finding homes for her friends for years and decided to take the extra step to make it official. She brings to the firm this tenacity and love for real estate, as well as years of relevant work experience – including contract negotiations – that bode well for her clients.
Sherry has always worked hard on her pursuits, starting with her studies. She earned her BBA in Finance at the University of Texas and followed that up with a successful stint in commercial banking. Next, her love for learning and self-improvement took her back to Austin for her MBA in Finance. She parlayed this advanced degree into a successful stint at American Airlines, first as an Associate, then as a principal in the mergers and acquisitions group, and subsequently as controller of Finance and Planning. When she left, she was Director of Investor Relations, communicating with Wall Street on matters concerning the airline.
For many years Sherry also put her heart into being a full-time mother and active volunteer/member of many worthwhile organizations including Cistercian Preparatory School, the Lamplighter School, St. Rita Catholic Church, Zeta Tau Alpha Alumnae Group, Cristo Rey Dallas and the Dallas Symphony Orchestra League.
“I truly enjoy working with people and listening to their needs. I would love to have the opportunity to meet you and discuss your real estate goals, too,” Sherry says.
