Sherry Blinkhorn is a veteran Realtor in Nova Scotia who has built a hallmark real estate career from the ground up. Within her first couple years as a Realtor, she earned her place in the top 5% of Realtors across Canada with a National Franchise. Since then, she has opened her own brokerage, and continues to train top producing agents year after year.
The group Sherry owns is called Blinkhorn Real Estate Ltd, and it has become one of the highest producing real estate companies in Pictou County, and is a well-known brand in the region. She has made a true name for herself by espousing core values of generosity and personal care while passing those values on to the agents she hires. “We truly care about humans,” Sherry says. “We work as a team; when you get one of us, you get all of us.” Sherry is a Realtor who emphasizes relationships with her clients and coworkers as the top priority of her business.
Sherry and her team provide a personally tailored experience for each client they do business with. She truly aims to assist them with their specific needs in any way they can, and find it rewarding to help people acquire one of the greatest achievements of their lives in home ownership. “Honesty and ethics are very important to us,” Sherry says. “We always aim to do what’s best for the client.” Sherry’s method of putting the client first has made her and her team incredibly popular with their local community – her team gets 80% of their business through repeat business and referrals from satisfied customers.
Long a mental health advocate and a past president of the Canadian Mental Health Association, Sherry has a passion for service and helping people get where they want to be. Not only does she regularly give back to her local community at large, but she lives her daily life in a way that maximizes the aid that she can offer to people who need it. “I’m an advocate for those who can’t speak up for themselves,” Sherry explains. She is well known for her work with non-profits and the volunteer sector. “I’ve fostered an environment where we put the people first.” Sherry wants nothing more than to make biggest transaction of someone’s life become a reality, regardless of the hurdles.
Sherry’s team works hard to produce a high-quality product and to make their clients’ lives easier. They use virtual reality tours and drone videography to enhance their listings, and they have the experience and expertise necessary to ensure they get the best prices for both buyers and sellers.
Blinkhorn Real Estate Ltd is a community-focused organization. They sponsor sports teams and are routinely involved with various non-profits and other organizations across the county. “We don’t see ourselves as good salespeople – we are good Realtors, there is a difference!” Sherry says. Outside of work, Sherry loves to spend time outside boating, traveling, and doing yard work. She hopes that her business can continue to thrive and keep its spot as a top brokerage in Pictou County well into the future!
