Angela Sherrill officially named Team Leader of KWCP Springfield

Today we are pleased to announce the official placement of Angela Sherrill as the Team Leader for the Springfield Market Center, one of Northern Virginia’s most productive real estate offices.

With nearly 25 years of real estate experience to share, and a commitment to the KW systems and models, Angela Sherrill is excited to be in the Team Leader role with a keen eye on helping Springfield agents to build bigger businesses and to assist them to better serve their clients. Most recently she has led KWCP Springfield as the Interim Team Leader since fall 2017.

“I really enjoy assisting people to find more ways to grow through real estate. What we do is directly tied to people’s hopes and dreams,” said Sherrill. “When I started out as an agent, I quickly realized that I was really passionate about this business, especially when it came to help make homeownership a reality for my clients. To be in this role means I will get to help more agents transform others’ lives through real estate.”

Angela began her career in Northern Virginia with Weichert Realtors, then spent time at Long & Foster, finally joining Keller Williams about six years ago. She immediately immersed into the systems, education, training, and tools to build her big business. Her experience includes having lead a small team ($18-22M), giving her a well-rounded perspective to best assist agents. When the opportunity arose to help start a new Market Center in Springfield in early 2015, she was on board.

In her day-to-day role with KWCP, Angela’s key objectives will be working with agents to focus on growing their existing businesses, to increasing the number of agents in the Market Center, to take the #1 position in the Springfield market.

When she’s not leading the market center, Angela is dedicated spending time with her family, and to directing B.L.A.S.T. (Bringing Learning And Sports Together) a non-profit organization that she founded with a mission to assist young women enter and fund college through athletics. The organization provides a vehicle to education, and in many cases, offers participants the realization that a dream of a higher education is not as far away as they once thought.

Angela will say her biggest and proudest accomplishment is being the mother of 10 children, and can attest to finding the balance of family and business through the KW models and systems – which allow her to be present – and everything else is a distant second.
