Women in Business PROFILES SPECIAL ADVERTISING SECTION
What is unique about your business?
Although I have a team, I'm involved in all aspects of every transaction, which is unique
for a top-producing agent. There is sometimes the perception that high-producing agents
with teams are too busy for the client’s personal needs. That's not the case with me. I
personally negotiate every transaction as well as coordinate staging, decorating, repairs,
photography and my client's personal marketing plan.
What is the one thing that your clients should know about you?
I’m very hands-on and attentive. Everyone involved in a transaction is a priority. Every
step of the way, I make sure that my clients understand the process and feel comfortable
with all decisions. Whatever their price range, they receive my full attention and the
highest level of service and professionalism.
How do you employ new technology to help your clients?
Networking is so important, particularly when you’re selling a home. We’re extremely
tech-savvy, with listings and information. Our social media is at the forefront including
Twitter, Instagram, blogs and Facebook advertising. Your listing will be on more than 400
websites. Additionally, we are well connected throughout the community with colleagues
and past customers and clients.
What's changed for women in business, if anything, over your career?
When I started my career in real estate in the 1980s, I began at a woman-owned and
operated Georgetown boutique. The owner was competent and strong, smart and
tenacious. She taught me when I was just 22 years old, that in real estate, to earn
respect from buyers, sellers and peers, I should always be compassionate and fair and stay
true to my beliefs. She also taught me to speak up and have a voice in every transaction.
