Inman Select was launched to provide real estate agents and brokers with a reliable, specific source for the news and information they need to thrive in the real estate industry. And it’s helped hundreds of real estate professionals identify areas for improvement, plan and execute change and stay on top of rapid industry shifts as legal issues, consumer sentiment changes and technological advancements change how business is done.

We’re sharing the stories of real estate agents and brokers who read Inman Select and use it every day to improve their businesses. Here’s what they know that you might not.

She’s worked in residential real estate for 21 years, and she was “directly responsible for leading more than $1.6 billion in annual sales” in addition to recruiting, training and coaching thousands of real estate agents. “Creating and building strong brand culture and turn-around change management are some of my strongest skills,” she explains.

What is your greatest accomplishment in real estate?

While I am proud of every stage of my real estate career, my greatest accomplishment was most likely taking over management of a 10-office region and growing it to 13 offices, taking it from $700 million to $1.6 billion in annual sales volume, growing the agent base by 40 percent from 500 to 700, opening new offices and expanding to new territories quickly and with great success.

As a top agent, I ranked in the top 21 in my company (out of 1,700 agents) and in the top 5 percent nationally. As a top managing broker and regional manager, my team and I received the Top Office and Top Region Awards annually for leading in sales, profitability, and mortgage, title and insurance adoption and referral rates.

I love to challenge and inspire others to reach their goals and literally change their lives.
