Name: Cathy & Jack Pren­ner Com­pany name: Camp­bell & Rose­murgy Real Es­tate Orig­i­nally from: Cathy is from Worces­ter, Mas­sachusetts; Jack was born in Fort Laud­erdale Cur­rent home: Light­house Point Re­al­tor des­ig­na­tions: GRI, CRS, SRES, CDPE, ABR How long in real es­tate? Cathy has been in real es­tate for 30 years, and Jack for 27 years What made you get into real es­tate? We’ve al­ways found homes for fam­ily

and friends and al­most couldn’t help be­ing in­volved in real es­tate. It’s the best job in the world for us. What sep­a­rates you from other Real­tors? We have a clear, for­ward-think­ing per­spec­tive of the con­stantly chang­ing real es­tate mar­ket, and how it af­fects your in­vest­ment port­fo­lio. We also have un­par­al­leled knowl­edge of the wa­ter­ways and com­mu­ni­ties where we work. Which neigh­bor­hoods/ar­eas are your spe­cialty? Light­house Point, Deer­field Beach, Boca Ra­ton, Pom­pano Beach, and Fort Laud­erdale. De­scribe your work­ing style? We are ex­tremely or­ga­nized and have a pas­sion for the job. We have ad­ver­tised in­ter­na­tion­ally as well as na­tion­ally and lo­cally. We have a com­pre­hen­sive ap­proach and use ev­ery means we can to find buy­ers for our prop­er­ties. What ad­vice do you have for buy­ers? To­day’s buy­ers need to rec­og­nize that to­day’s OK deal is very likely tomorrow’s great deal. Wait­ing and want­ing to­day’s pur­chase to be all about them will only hurt them. Homes may not ap­praise but that does not mean that the buyer is not mak­ing a good pur­chase. The ap­prais­ers look at where we have been, not nec­es­sar­ily where we are to­day. What ad­vice do you have for sell­ers? We all know that the mar­ket is bet­ter but the ques­tion is how much bet­ter? A few years ago sell­ers lost a huge amount of money want­ing just a lit­tle bit more at a time when it seemed like the sky was the limit for what they could get for their homes. Ev­ery think­ing per­son has learned from this un­sus­tain­able mar­ket. Com­pro­mise is a good thing when buy­ing and sell­ing and it feels right to all con­cerned and helps to keep the deal to­gether. How does what you’ve learned about real es­tate help your clients? We have years and years of ex­pe­ri­ence in all types of mar­kets and all kinds of peo­ple. We have learned so much and we use this knowl­edge in all our deal­ings with the pub­lic. We have a very good rep­u­ta­tion and this is tremen­dously im­por­tant to us. What’s the hottest list­ing you have right now? We have a beau­ti­ful home listed for $1,749,000 that is at 2790 NE 23rd Place in Pom­pano Beach. The spa­cious home is on a deep lot with 100 feet of wa­ter front- age with no fixed bridges on the closet canal to the Hillsboro In­let. The home has five bed­rooms, four-and-one-half baths, and is on a quiet street across from a park. De­sir­able first floor Mas­ter bed­room. Huge sec­ond floor water­front bal­cony to en­joy the wa­ter views. What pro­fes­sional ac­com­plish­ment makes you the most proud? We are very proud that so many peo­ple trust us with the job of sell­ing their homes and help­ing them to find the homes for their fam­ily. Peo­ple come back to us time af­ter time be­cause they trust us, and we find that amaz­ingly grat­i­fy­ing. Are you in­volved in any char­i­ta­ble or­ga­ni­za­tions? Soropti- mist, cur­rent mem­ber (and past pres­i­dent) of the Pom­pano Beach Ro­tary Club. For­mer board mem­ber of the Broward County chap­ter of the Amer­i­can Red Cross, Save the Chil­dren and Com­pas­sion In­ter­na­tional spon­sors. What’s one thing peo­ple would be sur­prised to know about you? It sur­prises us that we have 9 grand­chil­dren and two more on the way.
