Re­al­tor des­ig­na­tions: CNS, SSRS What made you get into real es­tate? I was a cor­po­rate re­lo­ca­tor from New York that found my­self un­em­ployed 9 months later. I was 28, a sin­gle mom with a one-year-old and

de­cided that it was a per­fect op­por­tu­nity to break away from cor­po­rate Amer­ica. As I have a de­gree in ac­count­ing, I ac­quired my mort­gage li­cense. The lender that I worked for owned a real es­tate com­pany too, hence I was en­cour­aged to get my real es­tate li­cense and be­come a full-ser­vice agent. Four­teen years later, my pas­sion lies in the real es­tate side of the busi­ness. What sep­a­rates you from other Real­tors? De­liv­er­ing the high­est level of care and cus­tomer ser­vice to ev­ery trans­ac­tion. My busi­ness is built on be­ing knowl­edge­able, un­der­stand­ing the real es­tate in­dus­try in its en­tirety; not lim­it­ing my par­tic­i­pa­tion to just to my facet of the trans­ac­tion, but un­der­stand­ing the dy­namic of the whole deal and all par­ties in­volved. A strong Re­al­tor knows the chang­ing insurance guide­lines, fa­mil­iar with ti­tle insurance and its value, and knows how to work a mort­gage pay­ment. I take a high level of pride in be­ing a pro­fes­sional Re­al­tor and the source of in­for­ma­tion. Which neigh­bor­hoods/ar­eas are your spe­cialty? Park­land, Coral Springs, Co­conut Creek, Boca Ra­ton, Ta­ma­rac and East Fort Laud­erdale. De­scribe your work­ing style? I am de­tail ori­ented, 24/7 ac­cess, and ded­i­cated to the end re­sult. I take the ed­u­ca­tional ap­proach in work­ing with clients...pre­pare them for the sur­prises. What ad­vice do you have for buy­ers? You’re not shop­ping for a house, you are look­ing for a pro­fes­sional Re­al­tor like my­self that you can trust to lis­ten to your cri­te­ria and guide your buy­ing de­ci­sions for the most suc­cess­ful out­come: your dream home. Make sure the bro­ker­age your agent works with af­fords you the mar­ket­ing re­sources needed to sell your home in to­day’s mar­ket where 95 per­cent of all buy­ers are shop­ping online first. What ad­vice do you have for sell­ers? You get what you pay for. There is a tremen­dous value that a Re­al­tor brings that far ex­ceeds the com­mis­sion. How does what you’ve learned about real es­tate help your clients? Ex­pe­ri­ence can­not be bought or sold; it is truly earned, like trust. My clients al­ways com­pli­ment my knowl­edge and I re­spond the same way, it all came from bumps and bruises. Hope­fully, I with­ered enough storms and pit­falls so you don’t have to. What’s the hottest list­ing you have right now? Avail­able $398,000 in Boca Chase What pro­fes­sional ac­com­plish­ment makes you the most proud? The ac­cred­i­ta­tion I re­ceived from my col­leagues: Bilt­more Who’s Who Among Ex­ec­u­tives and Pro­fes­sion­als, and Cold­well Banker In­ter­na­tional Di­a­mond So­ci­ety Agent Are you in­volved in any char­i­ta­ble or­ga­ni­za­tions? Park­land Woman’s Club; Past Of­fi­cer: Women In Dis­tress; Af­fil­i­a­tion: Ju­nior Achieve­ments of South Florida, CB Cares, Pace Univer­sity Alumni, Ge­orge Wash­ing­ton Univer­sity Alumni What’s one thing peo­ple would be sur­prised to know about you? That I have an ac­count­ing de­gree, and a mas­ters in Ed­u­ca­tion and Hu­man De­vel­op­ment... far from an au­dit or a class­room.
