- Assistant Vice President
Now a key asset for Kansas City-based Block & Company Inc., Sheryl Vickers had her real estate license for nine years before she founded Select Sites, a tenant representation firm, in 2005. Between 2005 and 2008, Vickers completed more than $25 million in transactions with the help of only one employee. When Vickers' expanding interests and the economic climate change motivated her to join Block & Company, she was able to broaden her scope: She single-handedly opened and runs a new Block office in Lawrence, and began representing property owners and managing various properties. Vickers' success comes from maintaining a good rapport with clients; she makes sure deals get done through a blend of cooperation, communication and problem solving. Outside of the office, Vickers, a single mom, manages balances her workplace obligations with the demands of raising two toddlers.
