WATER VALLEY – The Remax Legacy – Fischer Properties team was presented the prestigious Business Spotlight Award by the Water Valley Area Chamber of Commerce on November 8. Chamber president Justin Canterbury presented the award to this business that has been a cornerstone of the Water Valley business community for over two decades.
In 1999, Sherry Fischer was just starting out in real estate. After graduating from the Mississippi Realtor Institute, she worked with Home Realty in Oxford for three years. During that time, she realized there was a need for a real estate company in Water Valley. Her vision was to have her own real estate company in her hometown – a dream was supported by her entire family.
Her father, Odie Shuffield, renovated a two-story house at 106 Railroad Street (which is still the site of her office) for Sherry and her mother, Janice.
Sherry’s mom operated her business, a beauty shop, on one side of the refurbished building. Sherry’s newly formed real estate company, Fischer Properties, occupied the other side.
“After 21 years this office still fits my needs perfectly and is my home away from home,” Sherry reported.
During her career she has received many certifications including the prestigious Realtor of the Year in 2006. She also served as President of the North Central Mississippi Board of Realtors in 2008.
In 2010, Sherry realized that even with her assistant, Patricia Hendricks, and her husband, Paul, working behind the scenes she needed another agent. The opportunity arose for Toni Hill to join the team.
“Toni makes me walk the line. And you have to know Toni to appreciate that!” Sherry explained.
Toni has been with Sherry for 11 years and together the ladies received the fifth highest top team transactions recognition for Remax in 2020.
After 18 years as Fischer Properties, Sherry took her business to a new level by joining ReMax Legacy of Oxford. “ReMax is one of the top real estate companies in the world,” Sherry says proudly. “They offer us the latest and greatest tools of the trade.”
Sherry and her husband, Paul, have been married for 34 years. She boasts that she has “three beautiful children, Chad, Suzanne and Preslee, and two of the most beautiful grandchildren, Andy and Bailey Brooks.”
Sherry reports that she is especially grateful for her family’s support through these years.
“I just want to thank them for everything. Also my friends and clients who have helped so much along the way. I love what I do and my family, friends and clients are what makes it possible.”
