 Sherry was amazing! Always kept in touch, I will always use her and continue to refer to her.

 Things went so smooth, I wouldn't change a thing! I am thankful for Sherry's sincere desire to serve her clients.

- Kenneth and Janice Hart

Sherry is the best! She was so helpful when I bought and sold my house, and she is one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. If I had any questions she always got back to me right away. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a real estate agent.

Sherry was most helpful every step of the process. any showings or visits to the property I was always informed . Any time I called or had a question she was always very responsive. I plan on using Sherry on future property listings

 Sherry did a great job helping us find our home! She negotiated all the requested repairs and got us some great grants. We will be selling our home with her in the near future.

 Sherry sold my house in two days. Closed within the month. Excellent service. She answered all my questions and always returned my calls as soon as possible.

As a former real estate agent and property investor, I know that it pays to work with people who are at the top of their field. I've chosen to work with Sherry Gilleland. She just helped me with my last purchase. She's smart, hard-working and follows through. She knows the market and is  incredibly easy to work with as a buyer and seller. I highly recommend her.

 Sherry made us always feel at ease and was very confident that she would get our house sold.

Denise was simply fantastic! We had a very difficult house to sell, with a lot of complicated issues with us (being out of state) and the bank (foreclosure). She was professional and went WAY beyond the "call of duty" many times! I'm not sure what we would have done without her.

-Austin Chamberlain 

Denise was very helpful to us every step of the way! If we had a question she would always respond immediately and if she didn't have the answer, she would find it. I felt she was very honest with us when we would ask for advice. Buying a house is a very important decision and you need someone you can trust to walk you through it. Denise never made us feel pressured, she was more like a friend who we could talk things out with. If we could give her 10 stars, we would.

   On behalf of the staff and clients at the Oasis Women's Center, I would like to express our sincere thanks for your kindness and generosity to us at Christmas.

   We were overwhelmed by the huge number of donations that we picked up from you last Saturday.  We appreciate everyone who helped us and who went to a great deal of trouble in coordinating the community drive, and collecting and organized the many items for the agencies.  WE are very fortunate to have been on of the recipients of your Christmas Collections.

   The Oasis Christmas program is a success because of the kindness and caring of people in the community like you.  Our clients and their families will receive Christmas presents and celebrate the season without the fear of violence that they would be facing if not for your kindness and good will.  We also have many items which will help us continue to provide our families in the shelter with many of their needs.

   Thank you for helping us share the cheer of the Christmas season with some very special women and children.  Your kind thoughts and loving actions are deeply appreciated.


K.M. Trushel 

Sherry and Staff,

   In the rush of the Christmas season, we here at First UMC of Wood River want to pause and say "Thank You" for the incredible gift of kindness you bestowed upon us.  Your contribution to our food pantry is greatly appreciated and will help to keep families and individuals who come to us, supplied with the physical food they need to feed their hunger. 

   As we work closely with other community organizations to make sure that those in need are getting the best care possible, it is wonderful to see yet another dedicated and caring business owner in our community's midst.  For many of us in the community who offer these types of services and ministries, the cost can be prohibitive and ongoing.  You have definitely done your part in helping many of us realize our goals in assisting families and individuals with enough food to get through the first of the hard winter months.

   Thank you so much for your dedication and devotion to our community!  If we can help you with anything, please do not hesitate to ask!  God bless you and your families this Christmas season and always.

Warmest Blessing,

Pastor Kimberly Allen

My experience with Jane Short at Dream Home Realty was exceptional! She did everything as an agent that I expected and more.  She sold my property in a very timely fashion and made the transaction and the closing a breeze for me... This was an estate that had to be split amongst siblings.  She was very helpful and attentive that all went smoothly.  She was very good with communication also.  I highly recommend Jane and Dream Home.  Thanks Jane!

Sherry Gilleland is the best we have ever dealt with.

 Hi Jane!

Mike and I would like to thank you and Sherry for all of your help in finding our new home.  My favorite memory of the experience would have to be getting the call that our bid was excepted.  We feel that we did get a  GREAT  deal on our new home.  All of my kids love their new home and being next door to their aunt and uncle.  We plan to stay at our new home for a very long time.  Thank you again for helping Mike and I find out home.  Actually this is the second home you have helped us get.


Mike and Stacie Hale

 Thank you for working so hard to find us the perfect home.  We are very happy here and look forward to creating memories here with our children.  We appreciate all that you did for us and it won't be forgotten.  Please let us know if there is ever anything we can do to build your business.  We will always recommend you to any friends, family or co-workers.  We will continue to pray for your success.

Thank you,

David and Alisha

We Can't thank you enough for your hard work and quick actions on getting us into our new home!  We were very fortunate to be referred to you.  Your patience with us and ability to move the process quickly was very exciting from our point of view.  having a proven professional kept us at ease.  no matter how silly a question seemed or how many ways we could come up with to ask the same question, you continually were patient and always guided us in the right direction.  You will be the first and last person we will ever deal with or recommend from this point forward.

Kyle & Brooke

 Shannon was by far  the most proficient realtor I have work with in 11 years.



 I wanted to thank you so much for all that you have done for me.  I can't believe how amazing everything was worked out for me with this house and it has been because of you and God.  I just can't thank you enough.  You have no idea how much all of this means to me.  This house means the world to me and my son.  We are so grateful. 

Thank you so much!!!!!!
