Certified Residential Specialist
My drive comes from working with and for others. I derive particular satisfaction from doing things for others, for the company, for the team and for the company?s customers. I like to exceed their expectations.
Cooperative and willing, I can be a particularly effective teacher and communicator. I can work at a fast pace and be accurate and attentive to details. I do not, however, like repetitive routine, rather different responsibilities on a variety of projects. I am great at follow-up. When necessary for me to correct, I can do it in a constructive, supportive manner. My sense of urgency and sense of duty combines to make me actively concerned about timeliness as well as the correctness of any work for which I am held responsible. I am a seasoned negotiator.
My expertise is in people relationships, communications, and organization. I am an effective communicator, able to motivate others while being aware of and responsive to their needs and concerns. I am congenial, friendly, and very approachable. I get along easily with a wide variety of people.
