I help new and underachieving real estate agents become more productive so they’ll earn more and be more satisfied with their careers.
My background is in higher education. I taught German language and literature as well as comparative studies at The Ohio State University, Miami University, and Otterbein College. While at Otterbein, I decided to take my career in a different direction. I entered the real estate profession and became a licensed as a salesperson in the state of Ohio. Real estate agents are called upon to educate their clients in many situations, and I felt at home in my role as a consultant to buyers and sellers.
After selling real estate for several years, I became the trainer/business development coordinator and assistant to the manager for the Real Living HER Northeast Regional office. I focused on helping new agents get their businesses up and running, providing training for all agents in the office, and coordinating meetings and events. My role expanded to a regional level, and I worked with real estate agents and support staff in three offices in the Northeast Region. I then moved into the position of Program Coordinator–Professional Development and Special Projects for Real Living HER and Real Living Realty Services. I then took on the role as the Director of Training and Professional Development for HER Realtors.
As Director of Training and Professional Development, I was responsible for the overall direction and execution of training and education programs at HER Realtors. This included classroom and online courses, real estate continuing education, and office and regional training. I developed courses for agents and worked with leadership at the company to ensure that skills learned in the classroom were reinforced and supported in the field. I created bi-weekly meeting materials for office business and coaching meetings. I provided technology training to new and existing agents as well. In addition to those duties, I also oversaw the transaction management platform, rDocs, and presented in-person and online training to agents and staff to increase usage of the platform.
At the end of 2021, I assumed the role of Vice President of Operations for Corcoran Global Living. I shared responsibility for the education department and helped implement tools and programs at the brokerage. I co-authored the new agent training program and delivered it remotely. I helped shape the direction of the education program. I focussed on internal communication and worked to scale operations over a multi-office, multi-state brokerage. I left that role at the end of 2022.
Real estate has been my profession for over 20 years. I love to help agents to be productive as quickly as possible and to sustain their businesses. I’ve trained hundreds of agents to realize their goals in real estate and life. I’m proud to pass on what I learned to help agents create the success they want in their business and life!
