Born on the Gulf Coast, in Freeport, Texas, where Cheryl Lewellen-Price inherited her enduring love for the beach and salt air, and licensed as a
Realtor in 1976, some might say that it was inevitable that Cheryl would build a sterling career selling Galveston real estate. The only surprise would be that it took 24 years to happen.
Prior to that, she was a Vice President of a professional recruiting and placement agency, with offices in Houston, Dallas and Atlanta, where she established and managed their temporary placement agency. Then, in 1984, she did turn to real estate, but it was working in Houston for a full-service home finding brokerage and leader in the temporary housing industry, specializing in corporate relocation and lodging. While there, she served in a variety of roles including corporate sales representative and operations manager. It wasn’t until 2000 that she moved back to the coast, at first running that company’s Galveston corporate relocation and apartment locater operations.
But, the pull of the ocean led her to an opportunity in vacation and resort real estate sales that, ultimately, became the enduring career she was meant for. Since then, she has primarily focused on the marketing and on-site sales of residential lots, development projects, and condominiums, serving West End neighborhoods that include Pirates Beach, Laffite’s Cove, The Harbor, Pirate’s Cove, Indian Beach, the Estate of Sandhill Shores, and Enclave. She was the Sales Director for Emerald by the Sea and Palisade Palms, and also worked with an auction company that was involved with sales at Palisade Palms and Diamond Beach.
In 2006, she earned her Broker’s license and has been very active in industry affairs, serving on the Board of the Galveston Association of Realtors from 2006 to 2009, where she was the Secretary/Treasurer in 2009; and, in 2005 she was a winner of the Stewart Title Spotlight Award.
Always driven to deliver concierge customer
service, Cheryl strives to understand the needs of her clients and educate them about the market, but most of all she endeavors to take the worry and confusion out of the home buying process.
“It is all about the people,” she says, “and helping them find their special place, where family and friends come together and create memories. I knew I wanted to be a part of that process. My entire background has centered on customer service and providing information that is tailored to clients’ personal needs and desires. I knew as soon as I started that this would be a perfect fit.”
Married to Mike Price, Cheryl has a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Sam Houston State, has served on the Board for Big Brothers and Big Sisters, and is a supporter of the Galveston Animal Shelter.
