My Business Philosophy
Tom Flynn is an accomplished sales professional, starting his career in the New York City advertising sales community. His experience in large international publishing and Internet companies, as well as small start-ups, required that he maintain a high energy level, establish and achieve realistic goals, and constantly re-prioritize tactics.
He created solid business relationships by being honest, creative, and timely in delivering on his tasks. Real estate sales as a second career was a natural transition, using many of his qualities to generate new contacts, build relationships, and gain referrals from satisfied customers. He knows the value of real estate market knowledge, keeping abreast of developing market trends, and communicating relevant details to clients on a timely basis.
Education and Training:
Mr. Flynn holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing from Fairleigh Dickinson University, and started on his Masters of Business Administration from Fordham University. He also completed a special management course at the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business.
