“I will say that I love that this is not only one of the incredible dishes that Pete grew up with and that we all get to enjoy when Tula cooks, but it also happens to be PLANT-BASED!!! Definitely accidental vegan food, but that kind of just makes me laugh! All I care about is that it is delicious and that the family will eat it and be happy!“

A Roadmap to Purposeful Retirement
By Jolene Nanette

Retirement is a significant milestone in life, offering a newfound sense of freedom and opportunity. Seniors have the chance to explore their passions, embark on new adventures, and make a lasting impact on their communities. It is also a time of uncertainty and a shift in routine. Staying mindful of what matters most and the importance of organizing one’s time, with the absence of the pre-programmed daily schedule, will help make the most positive impact on their overall well-being and the communities they serve.

Feng Shui Essentials 
From Roots to Blooms
Cultivating Positive Energy Through Your Garden with Feng Shui
By Dee Oujiri

Feeling like your space could use a boost of positivity and vitality? You're not alone. In the bustling rhythm of life, our surroundings often need a touch of rejuvenation. Enter Feng Shui, an ancient Chinese practice that focuses on harmonizing the energy in our surroundings to promote balance, health, and prosperity. It recognizes the immense potential in vibrant greenery to transform both our outdoor and indoor environments. With the color green at its core, symbolizing growth and new beginnings, Feng Shui invites a refreshing and uplifting energy into our lives. By weaving a rich tapestry of trees and plants into our spaces, we open the door to a nurturing energy that uplifts and supports our well-being from the ground up.

Maximize Your Real Estate Investment: Schedule Your Annual Review Today
Receive Tailored Insights to Maximize the Value and Growth of Your Real Estate Portfolio

Cheri Riley

As a homeowner who values the luxury and comfort of your residence, I understand that your real estate holdings are not just a place to live but a significant investment. That's why I'm offering you an annual review of your real estate portfolio to ensure that you have the most up-to-date information about the real estate activity in your immediate area.

During our consultation, I will share the latest data on real estate activity, including properties that are under contract, sold, and expired in the last 12 months. Additionally, I will provide insights on how these trends might impact your investment and your overall real estate strategy.

If your home value has increased significantly since you purchased it, you may need to update your insurance policies to reflect that prior to Hurricane season this year. I have arranged for a local inspector to provide an updated 4-point or wind mitigation report at a reduced rate, which can help you identify any issues that have come up since your purchase that could impact your investment.

Moreover, the aftermath of the pandemic has led to an increased awareness of the importance of wellness and healthy living among luxury homeowners. Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) has emerged as a critical issue, and I can offer you expert advice on how to improve your home's IAQ and overall health environment.

At the end of the day, my aim is to provide you with the knowledge and resources to ensure that your real estate portfolio continues to provide value and growth for years to come. I pride myself on offering a consultative approach that is tailored to your unique needs as a luxury homeowner. 

Please don't hesitate to contact me to schedule your private, complimentary consultation. - Cheri

"Cheri helped us find the house when we moved to Tampa. She was a true professional who knew the market, quickly grasped what we were looking for and then patiently toured us through homes until we found the right one. She negotiated a great deal for us and guided us through the purchase process. This is exactly why we called Cheri when we decided to sell the house. She was wonderful. A true expert on market conditions, she helped us prepare the house and then helped us set the asking price. As a result, we received 5 offers at the end of two days of showing and sold our house for $250,000 above our asking price. She once again guided us through the closing process, supporting us and our buyers. She is an exceptional agent." -Katherine G. I work relentlessly on my client's behalf to help them achieve their real estate goals and make smart choices in the built environment. I am passionate about bringing the beauty of sustainable and environmentally friendly living to the luxury real estate market. My community involvement and experience overseeing two billion dollars in sales during my real estate career will serve you well. - Cheri
