I think of you as a very thorough and creative manager who sets a positive and productive image for the agents. You set an office tone in which agents know you are in charge yet you are hands on and all about helping each agent and team to achieve their business objective within the framework of Long and Foster’s image and business model.
I particularly appreciate how you stay on the cutting edge of technology and are willing to teach others “how to”. You have the capacity to make your time the agent’s time and yet you manage to lead us in getting the right things done. This is a mark of your ability and capacity to plan, organize and control your use of time.
You reach out beyond the office to identify the talent we need as an office to be successful. You continue to bring in agents who are at the top of the real estate profession. The fact that these persons come to this office and blend in with the others you attract speaks to your capacity to create an environment of harmony and abundance.
You also know how to be a task master and to point out what the standards and requirements are with professionalism and compassion. You keep your cool under pressure and speak the truth as needed when needed. I do remember to tell you from time to time what an excellent manager you are. You are that indeed and I think of myself as being in good hands.
