Cheryl Lynn Deschamps
Originally, I was a “come from away”! Flash forward, I now have made my home in Atlantic Canada, specifically, Halifax, for the past 24 years! I was raised in an extended family where our home was also our place of business; we owned a community grocery store for 50 years. I believe this is where I had my true start in sales. My first memories are of making change and grasping the concept of “in the red” and “in the black”. It is also where my strong work ethic and ability to connect dots began. Most importantly, my ability to meet people, communicate with them, and to understand my role in
assisting their aspirations, arose from all the different folks and walks of life that entered into our store. I was successful in the field of community development and adult education for 18 years
before making a career change in 2004. The move to real estate was a natural fit for someone who was entrenched in assisting individuals reach their goals. Life long learning is a mantra I embrace fully, and I have been trained and inspired by some of the best in the industry. I have sought to build strong relationships with my local colleagues as well as nationwide; my toolkit includes professionals that can assist my clients from lenders, interior designers, photographers, inspectors to trades people. Over the past 12 years, I have proven that my experience and foresight to be proactive and address details when they arise, has saved my clients both money and future worry
and anguish. I am not afraid to ask questions, and take the time to get answers. Integrity, and the best interest of those I serve, guide my business practice daily. As a result, I consistently exceed the expectations of both my buyer and seller clients. I am passionate about real estate and the role of a REALTOR® within the process of buying and selling. To this point, I added the role of Instructor at the Nova Scotia Association of REALTORS® and was a member of the Professional Standards Committee within NSAR. I am known for taking my time for my fellow
industry members, actively mentoring and sharing my knowledge. Recently, I was granted acceptance into the Metro Business Association, which has strong roots within the community in providing customer service excellence. This is the perfect arena for expanding my network and a further offering I have for those I represent. Dartmouth Special Olympics is a “special” part of my heart which has my family actively volunteering throughout the year. In my spare time, if I can find a Coronation Street event, you know I will be there! I have been an avid fan of the British Soap for years
and us fans are way too cool!
