Born and raised in Albany, I grew up at the feet of my dad, a Realtor. As a young girl, I would sit at his side to answer the office phone, and as I matured, I even handled his open houses. I went on to get a degree in Psychology while managing and transforming our family properties for sale. I ran a successful bodywork practice in Albany became a life coach and trained with hospice to volunteer with grieving families. Never did I think this path would lead me back to houses. But it has.
Since the early days of real estate with my father, many things have changed: technology, prices and contracts. But the most important thing has stayed the same: taking excellent care of the client. More than anything else, customer service lies at the heart of successful real estate transactions. From the first conversation to the final signatures, I see my job as one of collaborator, guide and advocate.
My favorite aspect of real estate is the relationship I build with clients. Being entrusted with such a huge transition in another’s life is an honor I never take for granted. Second, I enjoy the tracking and pulling together of the many puzzle pieces in each transaction. For sellers, this starts with the magic of staging, as their personal space becomes a place that buyers find alluring. My sellers are often astounded seeing the changes possible with minimal time and expense. For buyers, we focus on your dream.
When not working, I love to spend time with my two dogs, two kids, and my husband: they’re my world. We all enjoy going to the beach, connecting with friends, kicking back in the garden or listening to live music. My secret passion is flea markets and estate sales; I have a real fondness for special items that have lasted generations.
I am so pleased to join the team at Winkler Real Estate Group. Danny is the most straightforward and warmhearted real estate professional I’ve ever met.
