Ruth Sherrer

As a native Floridian, Ruth Sherrer has a heritage and passion for this beautiful area with its bayous and beaches. She has grown up spending her summers in Destin back in the day when it was just a small fishing village. She moved from Titusville when she was just 16 years old. Sherrer’s first job was at the old gas station where Taco Bell is today. She also graduated from Fort Walton Beach High School and went on to attend FSU and received a business/marketing degree, cum laude.

Upon graduating from a Bible School in Dallas, Texas, Sherrer met and married a Danish man and moved to Copenhagen, Denmark. She lived there about nine years and gained knowledge of the European mindset and customs. She still speaks fluent Danish and her son lives there now attending a top Danish University.

With 10 years experience in the real estate industry, Sherrer has worked primarily in mortgage lending with Wells Fargo Mortgage, in Destin and Countrywide in Fort Walton Beach. Her specialty has been networking with other professionals to ensure timely closings of real estate transactions.

When the downturn came to the real estate industry in 2009, Sherrer went to NWFSC and became a certified teacher and was the media specialist at Walton High School for three years.

As a real estate investor herself, Sherrer has expertise in investing. She is anxious to work with new investors who want to renovate, and flip properties, or seasoned investors who already have the experience of flipping. She also she also has a knack for working with first time home buyers.

Sherrer also enjoys making driftwood art and sharing this talent with the local community through voluntary classes. She is the president of Driftwood Properties of NW FL, LLC, an investment company, and is a member of the local Professional Investors Guild.
