The words clients use to describe Madalyn is “on it”. She has a passion to make real estate dreams a reality for her clients.

It was a great experience and exposed me to some of the most creative and successful minds in the industry. While my role as Team Leader was fun and insightful, I am ready to get back in touch with my buyers and sellers. I have a true passion for Real Estate and helping people with the biggest investment of their lives!

Sherry and Co.
Compass Real Estate
About Sherry and

When you work with Sherry & Co., you will instantly see the difference! We are focused on providing a professional, client-focused experience from start to finish. The best part of working with our team is that you can count on having the full attention of a true professional who always puts your needs first. Selling real estate isn’t luck. Its relationship building and market knowledge. We have both. We’re your neighbors and we have deep, personal connections to our community. All of our agents have years of experience. We believe our results speak for themselves: Our sell to list price average is 99% Median days on market is 17 We average $60 - $85 million in volume sold each year Real Trends ® Top Teams in GA Hundreds of happy clients each year- 70% of our business comes from referrals We’re endorsed by Dave Ramsey How do we differ from other real estate teams? We put marketing dollars and technology to work for you. With Sherry’s extensive background in marketing at a number of major corporations, she understands the value of a solid marketing plan. She is 100% committed to making sure each listing is effectively targeted to the correct buyer and promoted starting with professional photography/videography. We follow up with a customized combination of printed marketing materials, online promotion and paid advertising. Today’s buyers are savvy online shoppers who spend time researching homes on sites such as Zillow and Realtor.com. We have a major presence on both. In fact, we’re a Zillow Premier Agent allowing us to get maximum exposure for your listing. Social media plays an important role too. We run paid social media campaigns featuring our listings. We maintain an active presence on sites such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube and Twitter. Our marketing team is busy updating these sites daily to keep our audience growing and coming back for more. Our professionally designed website draws thousands of visitors a month. And each of our listings is prominently featured on the home page as well as an individual page on our site. We believe in the strategy of divide and conquer. On our team, agents are either listing agents or buyers’ agents. Why does that matter? Imagine you’re out for a day of house hunting and your agent keeps getting sidetracked by calls about one of her listings. Conversely, how focused can your agent be on selling your home if he is out with buyers all day long? Each of our agents was hand-selected for her unique set of skills and in-depth market knowledge. You will be her top priority. In addition to our team of agents, Sherry & Co has a full-time marketing manager, listing manager and closing manager. While your agent is focused on you, our behind the scenes team is working hard to market your property and ensure a smooth closing. We also have a full-time, inside sales agent. She makes sure that calls about our listings never go unanswered. It also allows us to be proactive in seeking buyers for our listings. Why Compass Real Estate? Compass’ mission is to help everyone find their place in the world. They’ve built the fastest growing brokerage in the country by pairing the industry’s top agent talent with technology to make the search and sell experience intelligent and seamless. With the solutions-driven mindset of a startup and the sophistication of luxury brand, Compass is the future of real estate.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Gainesville?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Gainesville?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date.

The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Gainesville is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
