CONGRATULATIONS to SUCCESS! Real Estate’s very own Jennifer Kern who was awarded the prestigious 2013 REALTOR® Of Outstanding Service title last night at the Plymouth and South Shore Association of Realtors dedication celebration at the Blackrock Country Club. We could not be more proud of Jennifer and ALL the work she has done this past year. Earlier this year Jennifer was installed on the Board of Directors at PASS. She is a shining example of professionalism and hard work in our industry! Once again….CONGRATULATIONS Jennifer!!!
This month’s Realtor of the Month is Andrea Campbell. Andrea has been a professional REALTOR® for over 6 years. She has been a SUCCESS! Agent for the last 4 of her 6 years working in real estate. When we asked Andrea what she thought the secret to her professional success was, she was quick to point out how important referrals were to her business. The majority of Andrea’s business comes from her strong referral sources that she has worked hard to build. She says the key to this lead stream is that you MUST understand the power of staying in touch with and staying in front of your clients. And above all you should never be afraid to ask for a referral. Some of the methods Andrea uses to stay in front of both her past and present clients are email updates, text messaging, phone calls, and social media sites.
Andrea points out that her overall client base is equally made up of both buyers AND sellers. Both are just as important to her business. Andrea takes immense pride in her customer service. She listens closely to what her clients’ needs and wants are, gets back to them with a quick response, and recognizes their fears and concerns. Andrea has great success with open houses, tracking down expired listings, and FSBO’s. She utilizes social media to market her listings and meets with Christine Pierce on a regular basis.
Andrea enjoys working at SUCCESS! Real Estate because of our company philosophy, the entrepreneurial spirit, and the fact that she works in an environment where her fellow agents are always willing to lend a hand and give their support.
Andrea is married with 4 beautiful kids and it is very obvious that she loves working in this industry. Congratulations!
