A love of Sunday open houses turned into a vibrant 9-year real estate career for Cheri Calkins, the newest agent to join John Jackson Neighborhood Real Estate. Cheri is committed to a level of service that makes the sale process so much better for our clients, always ready to jump in and lend a hand with scheduling, meeting inspectors or contractors or showing a home at the last minute. It’s easy to see why everyone loves her!

Originally from West County, Cheri moved to Kirkwood 10 years ago and hasn’t looked back. She and her three daughters especially love all the local Halloween festivities each fall: Trunk or Treat, school parties, the Kirkwood Holiday Walk, trick-or-treating on Bodley Ave. and the Pumpkin Patch at the Farmers’ Market.

Cheri holds a BA in Psychology from University of Missouri-St. Louis and an MBA from Webster University. When she’s away from work, she enjoys family game nights, coaching volleyball and basketball for her girls, refinishing furniture, decorating, reading, travelling and time out with friends.
