About Cheryl Stotler, CSR & Agent
Cheryl Stotler pictured back left with her family
Soon after the opening of Hometown Insurance and Real Estate, we were told by a mutual friend about someone we should consider hiring. We'll never be able to thank him enough for his recommendation of Cheryl Stotler to our agency. Cheryl grew up just north of here, oldest daughter of a hard working bunch of folks. She brings her talents, abilities and loyalty not just to the agency but to all her customers, too. When looking for a photo of Cheryl to put on the website, it just seemed more natural to place a picture like this. You can see by her warm smile that she is all about her family. This photo doesn't quite include them all, but, it gives you an idea of what makes her happy.
