Cheryllyne is originally from Mumbai, India, and loves sustainable gardening, browsing plant catalogs, cooking amazing Indian meals, collecting saris, watching British murder mysteries, and raising our kiddos – human (Leo, Indigo and Rex) and pets (Spotted Bear, Mollie, Mordecai, Liz Lemony). Cheryllyne is also currently serving as a Social Equality Task Force Ambassador for Keller Williams Realty International and president of the SENA – the Standish-Ericsson Neighborhood Association.
As an immigrant to the US (and now an American Citizen), Cheryllyne has a deep passion for fair housing and helping people achieve the dream of homeownership. She works hard for our clients at all price points to help make their real estate dreams come true. She is especially passionate about helping first-time home buyers and people who dream of owning a home but don’t know how to get there.
Cheryllyne is also consistently in the top 5% of agents in Minnesota for sales, and is a Keller Williams Luxury Certified agent.
Andy helps our buyers and sellers, and also helps the Realtors on our team with success in their careers. Andy has a passion for coaching, training and professional education, and loves seeing others succeed and achieve their goals. He LOVES helping new agents get started in real estate. Andy is always leading a Vaz+Harwood Academy class, teaching classes at our brokerage, or jumping in to help our agents with a transaction.
Before real estate, Andy was an advertising art director and designer. He worked for several major ad agencies, ran his own marketing business, and taught at the college level for several years. He brings those marketing, teaching and leadership skills to the team, and to our buyer and seller clients.
Andy’s main passion in life is his and Cheryllyne’s kids, who he loves to hang out with, play with and cart around all over the place to school and lessons.
He’s also a darn good rock guitarist, plays some keys and drums, and loves music of all kinds – making it, playing live, going to concerts and digging through the record collection. Andy played Keith Richards in a Rolling Stones tribute band for several years.
Astronomy is his other passion, and you’ll find him out looking at the stars and building telescopes. Andy is from East Grand Rapids, Michigan, and loves all things Michigan. 🙂
