I took a bit of a break from real estate in 1995 when I had my 2nd child – I realized I could not stay away and got back into real estate in 2000 taking on all the marketing and backend support for our niche family owned real estate company… Hilbert Realty. When my husband Chuck brought Keller Williams Realty to Rochester in 2009 I again facilitated the back end support designing business space, technology, start up efforts to launch the company. In 2016 I re-took the real estate course because I let my license lapse over the years and at that time I took over our team… this freeing my husband to manage our local Keller Williams Realty brokerage.
Favorite part of my job
I LOVE WHAT I DO!! I love the people that surround me each day – OUR TEAM! I never realized how much I would enjoy leading a team. Our passion and number ONE THING is to help our clients with the biggest investment - whether they are selling it or buying it. We love helping people find the perfect place to make their memories!!
We are a team with each person having a specialty that we concentrate on - our team partnership allows us to be productive and sell real estate at a high level. I personally specialize in servicing all of our sellers and presenting their homes to the highest level.
It is more important than ever that a high level of conversation is had with buyers and sellers explaining every nuance of our current real estate procedures and protocols. Not only from a safely level but also from a careful and calculated game plan through out the entire contract period. We help clients formalize the strongest offers possible given their financing options. We counsel our sellers on every offer that we receive and explain why one may be more favorable then another. We are constantly sharing what is happening in the market and explain how it affects them and their property. We have strong partnerships with many local vendors which allow us to further assist our clients with their home improvement needs as well.
Have you heard the term... early bird catches the worm? That is the mantra that I live by.
It is always about doing the right thing = ALWAYS! There may be tough conversations that have to be had with members of our team or clients... but without having those conversations things can not be resolved. Being honest, fair, and up front are paramount to our business model. I often will start a tough conversation with a client by asking them "on a scale of 1-10... 10 me being 100% honest and 1 being I sugar coat everything - where do I have your permission to be?" The answer is always a "10" - that has set the expectation right up front that there will be no surprises but straight forward conversation that might be hard to hear.
a true passion..
second only to real Estate.
I have had an absolute passion for skiing my entire life. As a kid my family skied at a local club known as Hunt Hollow. Here I learned the fundamentals very quickly as to connect the turns. We all partook in a weekly club race know as the LoveJoy Series – never did I place as high as I wanted because the competition was stiff but I always gave it my all.
During my college years at St. Bonaventure University I taught skiing at Holiday Valley - this is when my true passion kicked into high gear. Currently Bristol Mtn. is my home base and I have been racing in the adult race league for over 25 years. Currently I help to run the league and it is a blast! I have had the great pleasure to race at the national level and have won my age division every time. When snow is in the air and I’m not talking real estate you can find me flying down the hill! There are not too many mountains out west that I have not skied and some of the funnest races I have been part of have been in the Rockies. I have always said…”When I grow up I want to race like Lyndsay Vonn!” ( PS I am old enough to be her mom)
