Top real estate agent in Ontario Sherri Cobus of Renfrew, Ontario, has built a successful real estate business by combining her inexhaustible passion for the industry with a penchant for interpersonal networking. “I love it all – I am just obsessed. I’m a people person, and I love helping people take care of their biggest investments throughout the entire process – the negotiating, the house hunting, the whole ‘kit n’ kaboodle.’ Especially after we’ve left the closing table. I have a large network in the area and I know all of the contractors which helps me make sure people get taken care of.”

Originally, Sherri intended to enter the world of real estate straight out of high school, but she was encouraged to pursue a university degree by her grandfather (who himself was a builder). “The best advice I ever got from him was to do real estate as a second career, so I got my secondary education and went on to work at Ontario Housing for thirteen years as Community Relations Officer. One day at church, Cathy O’Neil, whose husband owns the Royal LePage here in Renfrew, she overheard me say I had always been interested in real estate, and when she approached me about it my husband said, ‘Your eyes immediately lit up – you should do it!’” With that gentle push and constant support, Sherri left her government job to obtain her license in 2002 and launched her enterprise.

Her experience at Royal LePage, combined with her professional exposure working with government housing, created a springboard for Sherri to form her own business; a journey she embarked on two and a half years ago. Presently, she works as a solo agent (alongside a collective of seasoned agents who entered the profession alongside Sheri) with eXp Realty, boasting fifty-three average transactions annually and a book of business that is eighty-five percent repeat and referral clients. Sherri attributes her success to her high energy disposition and her unquenchable thirst for all things related to the field. “I’m constantly reading and learning. When I’m in my car I don’t listen to music – it’s either The Richard Robbins Show or The Brian Buffini show. I’ve had extensive training with Brian Buffini coaching over the years, and I love to keep learning.” Her diligence has been recognized as a Diamond Award winner with Royal LePage, and she maintains the prestigious ICON status with eXp Realty each year, alongside the People’s Choice Diamond Award she has earned for the past five years as favorite real estate broker.

In addition to her thirst for knowledge, Sherri is proud to continue leveraging her expertise in her everyday life alongside her husband. In 2022, the couple purchased land alongside the Trans Canada Highway and built a storage facility to alleviate a desperate need. “Storage is such a commodity, and when I have buyers or sellers that need temporary storage in between houses, I’m able to keep a couple of units set aside for them. It’s just one more thing I can take care of, and I enjoy practicing what I preach by investing when I get the chance.”

With her position thoroughly cemented in the industry, Sherri is excited to “get back to basics” in 2023. “I think this soft recession will bring a lot of opportunity, especially if you’re willing to get in front of the public and do some open houses. That’s where I got started and it’s where I’ve always done my best work.” She is excited to share her breadth of insider knowledge with the new agent she recently agreed to mentor; and hopefully, with the help of a soon-to-be hired concierge assistant, she will be able to continue growing her business, while still spending time snowshoeing with her two dogs and traveling with her husband.
