Congratulations to our Spotlight Member Kerri Mathews of the GT Best City BNI Chapter in Starkville, MS.
In 2014, Kerri started her real estate career in Tennessee where she was originally born and raised. She relocated to Starkville at the beginning of 2016.
Real estate is Kerri's passion and she says the best part is constantly meeting new people. “My job is helping those people solve problems and reach their goals, and I love every minute of it!”
“The way I see it – buying or selling real estate is often a life-changing event. You’re moving – relocating to another place, moving up, down-sizing, FINALLY moving out of that rental into your very own home! It’s big. I pride myself in representing my clients’ very best interest and marketing properties to their fullest potential to ensure a smooth sale."
