About Sheri Dettman & Associates
Sheri Dettman & Associates is a leading full service real estate group within Keller Williams Luxury Homes International. Our strategy is simple: We strive to provide the highest level of service and satisfaction possible to our client base via a small group of real estate, administration and marketing specialists whose combined and diverse skills and talents is stronger together than individually.
After helping hundreds of buyer clients find their desert home, we know that most of our buyer clients are investing in a lifestyle for their family and friends rather than just a home. For our seller clients we proactively invest in a marketing strategy, which will result in bringing a large pool of qualified buyers to each of our Palm Springs area home sellers.

“I have always been very comfortable with any type of client. I enjoy helping people. I have high-end clients, but also specialize in the mid and lower ranges, as well. I do not discriminate when it comes to clients, and am happy to assist anyone and within any price range.”
Tennis is Sheri’s game; she also works out seven days a week which helps her remain energized and able to keep up with her busy schedule.

I hope to be known for being a kind, fair, and overall good person, and I work hard to earn each client’s trust.”
