Posted May 01, 2018 05:13:52In the years that followed the death of former NFL quarterback Troy Aikman, a real estate company owned by his widow, Sherry, was one of the first to jump on the bandwagon.
The site’s tagline is “Live a Better Life.”
Sherry and her husband, Todd, bought the company in 2008, but its growth wasn’t nearly as rapid as other real estate sites.
Theirs was the largest company in the area at the time, with a market value of $5 billion, and Sherry’s husband ran the company until the end of 2015.
Sherry is still a partner in the company.
They bought a small parcel of land in the town of Edinburg, just south of Salt Lake City, but it’s now occupied by the Aikmans’ ranch.
They’ve never looked back.
“It’s been like a dream come true,” Sherry said.
“I was really excited when we started because we were the only ones in town.
We could get a great price on it.”
Sherrry said she was looking forward to getting to work with her husband.
It’s been a long road for them to get to this point, but they’ve made it.
They have six kids, three grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
“We have six great-grads in the family and a grandchild,” Sherrry told FOXSports.com.
“We’ve never had a problem.
I think it’s just a matter of time.”
Aikman’s family has been a constant presence in Edinburys community.
Sherrish said she always has people coming and going from her home on the ranch.
The ranch is a large part of the family, and it’s also where Aikmen’s family lives.
Sherrs mother has lived on the property for about 30 years, and her great-great-grandmother also lives there.
“When you’re doing this and you get to see so many people that you care about, it’s really an honor to be a part of,” Sherrill said.
“He has done a lot of great things in this community,” Todd Aikmann said of his great-nephew.
“He has made a lot for the people that he has touched, and that’s the best way to put it.
He has helped me to become a better person.”
Sherrill said her husband has done everything he could to help the community.
He was involved with many charitable efforts, such as a fundraiser that raised over $100,000 for the local homeless shelter, and he was a member of the Edinbury Neighborhood Association.
He’s also helped the community in other ways, such for instance in hosting a charity drive and a “Family Fun” auction that raised more than $150,000.
“A lot of people who have been with him have been so kind to him,” Todd said.
Todd and Sherrill have two young daughters, Katelyn and Sarah.
Todd said he wants to continue his work on the farm.
Sherrill is proud of her work on behalf of her community and said she would never want to leave it behind.
“Troy and Shery were great people and people of faith,” Todd added.
“That’s why we’re still here.
We still believe in what they believed in.”AIKMAN’S LAST DAYSARE LIVE: The story of how Troy Aiken died in an automobile accidentThe Aikmania of ’92: The football legend and the NFL’s biggest storyIn the days after his death, Sherrill said, she didn’t think much of the Aikenmania.
She thought the site had been sold and the people involved were no longer around to do it.
She’s never been a fan of the site’s branding.
She’s not sure if she’ll ever use it again, but she’s happy with the site.
“The AikenMania has been around for a long time, and I’m glad it’s still around,” Sherri said.
