There’s not much about our High Caliber Agent this week that isn’t impressive. Not only did Vinnie Sherman, a David Griffin & Co. Realtor, fight for our freedom in our country’s armed forces, but he was an elite Army Ranger of the 75th Ranger Regiment. Sherman was one of these brave warriors, fighting on the front lines and often in dicey situations. On today, our nation’s birthday, we are proud to recognize Sherman and his service to our country. 

Through his experience at home and abroad, Sherman brings wonderful perspective to the real estate industry, especially to veterans navigating the VA home loan process — he’s been through it before, of course. Read on to find out more about this incredible American and High Caliber Agent!

Perhaps it’s time to get back to the basics. At the heart of the real estate industry, it’s the people that matter. Yes, the homes are vital, too, but buying real estate is complicated and sometimes frustrating, and having a solid relationship with the people behind the transaction is everything.

Nora Ling Lane, a Executive Vice President of Allie Beth Allman & Associates, knows this. It was ingrained upon her by her mother, who was also a consummate professional. So it’s obvious why we’ve chosen Lane as our High Caliber Agent, sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans.

Jen Rice HCAOTWThere’s a lot to a real estate transaction that gets lost in talk of prices and sales figures. It’s a complex deal in which a lot of people invest their time, money, and hopes and dreams. With the right agent, the setbacks that are bound to happen don’t sting so bad. Clients learn to lean on agents, who guide and advice everyday people through one of the biggest decisions they will make in their lifetimes.

Jennifer Rice realizes that. She knows that clients — from seasoned homebuyers to first-timers — need a Realtor they can depend on and one that focuses on their wants and needs.

That’s why we’ve selected Rice, an agent with the Collier+Rice team at David Griffin & Company Realtors, as this week’s High-Caliber Agent sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. Find out more about what drives this Realtor after the jump!
