Sheryl Pickens, Principal & Cofounder

Since the launch of her commercial real estate brokerage career in the early 1980's at Trammell Crow Company, Sheryl's professional philosophy is to embrace a client-centric outlook, choosing to focus her efforts on building long-term connections with those she serves rather than endorsing the traditional transaction-oriented business model.  Today, as Principal and Cofounder of PickensRidnour, L.P., d/b/a Real Estate Uprising, Sheryl leads with a strategic hands-on approach when negotiating on behalf of her clients in various transactional capacities in areas of leasing, acquisitions/dispositions, strategic consulting, portfolio management, broker opinions of value and state incentives.  Whether representing an entrepreneurial high-tech startup, sole proprietor, or an HQ global corporation, Sheryl will leverage her expertise to meticulously seek out and deliver the right business address or real estate investment that diametrically implements functionality, economics, culture and employee recruitment productivity for her client.  Sheryl has built a reputation of authenticity, ethics and exemplary service which has resulted in her continued client relations longevity and as a respected member of the commercial real estate community.
