A resident of the River Oaks and West University communities for over 25 years, real estate agent Sherri Hughey is more than familiar with Houston's premier neighborhoods.
While she specializes in River Oaks, West University, Southside Place, Southampton, Southgate, Braeswood, and Bellaire, Sherri is very comfortable working in all areas of the city.
Though Sherri has been helping her clients buy and sell for the past decade, most recently with Martha Turner Sotheby's International Realty, she also has a background in finance and accounting for the oil and gas industry. Her unique experience, combined with her strong work ethic and attention to detail, have consistently made her a top producer.
Sherri also understands the importance of giving back to her community — her past and present volunteer efforts include Episcopal High School, Lamar High School, River Oaks Baptist School, Zoo Friends, The National Charity League, The Houston Ballet Guild, West University Softball Association, Lamar Baseball Booster Club, and West University Little League.
She holds a bachelor of arts degree from Syracuse University and an MBA from Tulane University.
