About Cheryl

No one knows more about Real Estate in South Mississippi than Cheryl

Growing up in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Cranford graduated from Hattiesburg High School and then the University of Southern Mississippi with a bachelor’s in business administration and marketing and an award for the most outstanding marketing student of the year.  The fashion industry had always been a passionate interest of hers, and while still in college she was taken on by a modeling agency in New York City.

From runway assignments modeling designs by the likes of Anne Klein, Cranford moved into modeling for print ads and then television.  Traveling broadly for work, Cranford spent the next few years in Dallas, TX, Atlanta GA, and New York.  When a family illness called her home to Hattiesburg, she turned her attention back to the business and marketing she had studied in college.

Cranford officially launched her career as a real estate agent in early 1983.  Her experiences traveling and the time she spent in other major cities served her well in her new career:  They allowed her to see her hometown as an outsider would, and thus to tailor her home presentations to showcase the Hattiesburg community.  After all, the real estate business is about more than the transfer of property, it is about making people’s dreams come true.

Cheryl has been a multi-million dollar producer every year since 1986. Known as a Realtor Extraordinaire by her clients, she is recognized locally and nationally as one of the top producing agents in Mississippi and was the top producing individual agent for RE/MAX in the state of Mississippi for the last 12 years.  She was listed in the top 80 most producing agents in RE/MAX International and has sales reaching over 800 million in her career. 

She has served as the President of The Hattiesburg Area Association of Realtors, Chairman of the Professional Standards Committee, Chairman of the Top Producer Committee, Chairman of the Elected Officials Banquet, Membership Committee Member, RMLS Directors Chairman, Grievance Committee Chairman, and on the Education Committee.

“I am not just in the selling business-I am in the people business.  Real estate is about listening to your clients’ needs and making sure they are happy and satisfied with their purchase.  It’s doing the extra things that delight your clients-things that they do not expect that are above and beyond.  My personal office staff and I are all about enthusiastic service.”  When it comes to achieving your goals, I have one focus, one vision, and I am your one realtor who will go above and beyond to exceed your expectations.

It would be my absolute pleasure to assist you with your real estate needs.  Thank you for viewing my web site.
