Meet Cheri Sleeman Schulz
I became a REALTOR member of GKAR (Greater Kalamazoo Association of Realtors) in 1999 and the Broker/Owner of Schulz Realty, Inc in 2002. I earned the CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative) and e-PRO (real estate technology specialist) designations.
I was honored to be chosen as the GKAR Realtor of the Year in 2013 and as the Allegan Area Business Person for 2013 by the Chamber of Commerce.
Having been raised in a small family business atmosphere, it was probably destiny that I would eventually own and manage my own business. (My dad started Sleeman’s Service in 1955 in Cooper Center.) I have been blessed with great success in real estate – achieving #1 in the Allegan area sales in all but two of the years that I have been a Realtor. Schulz Realty, Inc has been the #1 selling company in the Allegan area since I opened the office in downtown Allegan.
This continued success can be attributed to my commitment to provide the best possible service to buyers and sellers, with the attention to detail, highest of ethics and integrity and just plain hard work. I have also chosen similar minded agents to work with Schulz Realty to maintain our standards of excellence and achievement.
My husband, Steve, and I purchased the building the Secretary of State leases in 2003, and added additional office spaces, including that for my real estate use.
I moved to the Allegan to marry Steve in 1988; we have two daughters, Shelby, 23 (a Hope College graduate, now teaching in Colorado Springs), and Hannah, 21(a 2015 Hope College graduate) . I have two grown stepdaughters, Sarah and Emily and two adorable grandchildren, Adam and Sophia. I grew up in Cooper, graduated from Plainwell and WMU. I am on the boards of Wings of Hope Hospice and Allegan County Economic Development, a Kids Hope mentor and a member of Christ Community Church.
We live on the farm that Steve was raised on and raise Belgian Draft horses for fun. We love the outdoors, camping, tennis, antiques and mostly spending time with family whenever we can!
