Originally from Mendham, New Jersey, Kerri Maw began visiting Sanibel when her sister first moved to the island in 1998. Two years later Kerri’s mom moved to Sanibel. After many island visits and a desire to be closer to family, Kerri moved to the island in 2003 with her own family. Kerri and her husband Eric grew up together in Mendham, NJ and have been married for almost 25 years. Their two children, Colin and Courtney both graduated from The Sanibel School and went on to attend Bishop Verot Catholic High School in Fort Myers.
Kerri started working with American Express in the corporate travel department, on-site at Warner Lambert Pharmaceuticals. In 1992, she was transferred to Sandoz Pharmaceuticals to assist with corporate groups, and over time she started assisting the Sandoz meeting planner with various types of large gathering logistics. Kerri was later promoted as manager of the meeting planning department when the company merged with Ciba- Geigy and became Novartis Pharmaceuticals.
Kerri and Eric, who worked as a Realtor and builder in New Jersey, have always been involved in real estate. Their interest began when they designed, built, and sold their two custom homes in Mendham, New Jersey. They brought their real estate passion to Sanibel as they redesigned their island home.
