So, after working 20 years for a Hedge Fund in Dallas, Cheryl was ready for change. Her husband, Jim, had already decided to bite the bullet.  They moved here the first quarter of 2020 without regret. Now, Cheryl being the “people person” that she is has accepted the offer to work with Fenix Real Estate connecting people with properties, and sharing her experience with those starting a new life here.
