My Business Philosophy

I came into the business world from college not knowing what I wanted to do in my career – so I chose to become a media buyer at a Madison Avenue advertising agency. And by the way, it was the only job offer I had after graduating.

I dealt with a lot of media sellers for the first three years – professionally and socially. As they got to know me, many told me that I was on the wrong side of the desk, and that I should really be on the “outside” – meeting people, developing relationships, solving problems. I soon switched to the media sales side and found that they were right. I spent over 30 years in media and sponsorship sales in the advertising world.

What I found in my transition from media sales to real estate sales is that to be successful, certain key traits transcend the industries:

  • Be honest
  • Be on time
  • Be diplomatic
  • Follow up when you say you will
  • Don’t be afraid to deliver “negative’ news
  • Think “outside the box”
  • Be respectful
  • Know when “enough is enough”
  • Maintain your energy level
  • Get to know your clients personally
  • Have fun

I try to practice these whenever I meet someone who could be/is a client, prospect, or even a good referral source. I hope to make you a friend, as well.
