As a Watson Realty Corp. multimillion dollar producer and 2014 Silver Pinnacle Award winner, my goal is to provide my customers with unsurpassed customer service.  I believe communication is key to providing a smooth real estate transaction from contract to close.   Three year recipient of the Watson Realty Corporation's President Award. Member of the  National Association of Realtors, Florida Associate of Realtors, Northeast Florida Association of Realtors, Watson Realty Luxury Specialist.  I'm also a Member and Newsletter Editor for Arlington Newcomers Group. Past Member of the International Downtown Association, Chamber of Commerce of the Palm Beaches, Florida Citrus Sports Association Board and Orlando/Orange County Convention and Visitor's Bureau.

Married for 41 years, I obtained my real estate license 35+ years ago and began actively working in the industry in 2007.  Prior to entering real estate, I began my career in Florida's hospitality and tourism industry with Walt Disney World, Hilton Hotels, the Helmsley Spear organization and Church Street Station/Rosie O'Grady's of Orlando, which was Florida's 4th largest tourist attraction. While at Church Street Station, I was nominated for Orlando's Business Woman of the Year by the City's Mayor. I was presented with a Key to the City and had the extreme honor of having Feb 11, 1988 proclaimed Sherry Martello Day in Orlando.

A move to West Palm Beach in 1988 resulted in a career change, when I joined the WPB Downtown Development Authority, where I spent 6 years as the organization's Director of Marketing and Communications.

My husband's transfer in 1995 brought us to Jacksonville. I felt home immediately because of the friendliness of the City's residents and found great pleasure in North Florida's seasonal weather changes. I owned and operated 3 Great Clips hair salons, before selling them 2006.

A short retirement found me anxious to return to work and more importantly, to interact with people. I made the decision to utilize the real estate license I had obtained more than 35 years ago and joined Watson Realty's Hidden Hills Office in 2007.

My experience and expertise encompasses all areas of real estate from waterfront & luxury properties and corporate relocations to first time home buyers.  Experienced in foreclosures and short sales.   If you're looking to buy or sell real estate in Jacksonville, I hope you'll call me!

TESTIMONIALS:

I just wanted to let you know how pleased I was working with Sherry Martello in finding and purchasing my new home.  I have worked with many realtors over the years and Sherry is by far one of the best!   After our initial discussion on my preferences Sherry immediately sent me around 30 listings to review and further narrow down my likes and dislikes.   She also quickly got me set up on Listingbook to receive daily new and changed listings.  Not surprisingly, since Sherry listened well to my preferences, the home I purchased was one of the original 30 listings. 
 
Finding the right home is sometimes not an easy task but is kind of the fun part.  Going through the negotiating and mortgage/closing process is totally a different story and by far the most stressful.  Sherry was on top of it all.  She kept things moving and dotted every I and crossed every T.   She made the process so much less stressful. 
 
It's rare to work with someone that is so knowledgeable and dependable these days.   Sherry is both of those and much more.   You have a polished gem in Sherry!!   I will recommend Sherry to everyone I know looking to buy or sell property. 
 
Thanks for a wonderful home buying experience!!  SB

    Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Windy Hill, Jacksonville, FL.
    Sherry was a joy to work with. She answered every communication (email, voicemail) promptly and completely. She copied me on all correspondences with selling relator, bank, closing attorney, inspectors, etc. She always find time to show houses on my schedule. Her knowledge of the area and realestate practices is incredible. I truly felt that she had my best interest in mind at all times. I recommend her as a listing and/or selling agent wtihout any reservation.  MoreLess

    Sold a home in 2012.
    I had the pleasure of working with Sherry as a buyer and seller in parallel. As a seller Sherry kept me informed of what was selling successfully in my area and what I could do to compete in the sellers market. As a buyer she listened to what I wanted in a customer and helped me find exactly what I was looking for. Sherry is an awesome real estate professional that will work hard for her customers. I was always able to get my questions answered day or night. It was a pleasure working with her.  MoreLess

    Bought a home in 2012.
    Sherry just saw us through two very difficult home purchases. One was a short sale - with all the attended madness; the most recent was a conventional that became very hairy due to my broker getting behind on his paperwork. Sherry is aggressive just when and where she needs to be, and a voice of calm and understanding when we needed it to hold steady. She kept after the other parties involved and made things happen. She answered my every call swiftly and reviewed and explained each step along the way.

    I would highly recommend Sherry to anyone seeking to buy or sell a home.
