You have joined The Agency. Tell us about your goals and vision with the brand?
I was ready to expand my business to the international market and the Agency
was the perfect fit with an incredible opportunity to level up my skills in the industry and on a global scale. I loved the fact that they are the fastest growing premier boutique brands in the world. I have expanded my business internationally to Italy now and offer my clients access to a valuable network and marketing exposure with professional guidance.
My goal with the brand is to level up my skills and leverage the marketing, technology, experience, global network with the agents and clients. My goal and vision is to always be ready to listen, learn and grow. I want to be a reference in the real estate industry and serve my clients with the latest trends and highest industry standards.
Do you focus on more luxury properties now, and if so in which key areas?
I focus on luxury as an experience, not a price point. I am selective with my clients and definitely focus on quality versus quantity. After over twenty years in the business I have learned what luxury really means to me and that is having the luxury to choose my clients and treat all my clients with a boutique personalized service as real estate in itself is luxury.
I went to Italy to explore the market and get more listings to be a reference for my clients. My clients will benefit from having access to the high profile client base and cutting edge marketing and technology. That’s value added. The collaborative spirit of the Agency is helping me spread my wings and connect on a global level which was very difficult to do on my own.
How do you find balance and peace of mind in a hectic day?
I ride my bike every day. I set up an indoor interactive trainer for long winter months so no excuses. Life has many uncontrollable factors and unfortunately you need to learn how to move forward despite the struggle. My best advice is to create yourself a lifestyle to allow yourself to live. I embrace feeling alive everyday and find a purpose in everything I do, work, family, friends. Passion, courage and resilience are my drives to living, loving and helping others live and enjoy la dolce vita!
