What is the core value of your business?
The core value of my business begins with my Personal Core Value. We have our primary job and our secondary job. Real Estate is secondary. Giving the best of yourself to the world is Primary. It is the greatest gift we can offer to anyone. Real Estate service goes deeper for me. I always remind myself that patience and kindness go a very long way and I want my clients to feel that I care for them like I do for my own family and friends.
Why do you think having a team is important and how do you choose one?
One cannot achieve great success alone. You will always need the help and cooperation of others. I joined Ernie’s team when he was at Coldwell Banker and from the second I met Ernie I felt extreme positive energy which has been consistent every time I’m around him. I admire him as a businessman and a mentor, but also as a person. It is of absolute importance to me to affiliate myself with people that have integrity, respect and unquestionable reputation. My business is very personal to me. The partnership between myself, Ernie Carswell and Associates along with Douglas Elliman and Knight Frank makes us a Global Real Estate force. This is not only a superb business collaboration, but also aligns with my intentions of surrounding myself with winners and living my life with love and service to the world.
Where do you get your passion from and how do you incorporate that into real estate?
My passion stems from humble beginnings abroad. Without internet and cellphones back then, all I had as a child were my dreams and imagination. That is the strongest muscle I have. I stick to the vision of the best scenario I can have which is achieving my end goal and my clients smiling and happy. I nurture that feeling daily. Their trust in me that I will not stop at anything to get them the very best is what drives me.
