Employee Spotlight – Bret Cherry

Bret Cherry is an Escrow Officer at Alliance’s CW Moore office in Boise, Idaho and has been with the company since 2016. Interacting with great clients, being part of an experienced team for each transaction and seeing the happiness from buyers and sellers after a successful closing are his favorite parts of being an Escrow Officer.

Of the Alliance Core Values, “Integrity” is Bret’s favorite. He explains, “having worked in other markets, you quickly understand what makes a company work. Integrity drives the other Core Values of Teamwork, Honesty, Trust, Respect and Service. It reminds me of my grandfather in Switzerland, where a handshake was your word — your integrity.”

“It takes all kinds of people to make a world,” is his favorite quote. He says that he grew up with his mother always reminding her children of that reality. It’s always been Bret’s daily mantra and he feels that it becomes more and more relevant each day.

Out of everyone, he admires his nephew, Cortlan. “We lost him to cancer when he was 7. His perspective on his surroundings, even during the most painful hours, was elevated. He exited this life without ever complaining.”

When not working, Bret enjoys exploring new things to do in the area and taking advantage of the outdoors. “Coming from San Francisco, aside from the beach, you typically drive a great distance with extreme traffic to reach hiking, biking and skiing areas.”

Bret looks forward to helping make your next transaction a success!
