Congratulations to our November Agent of the Month, Mary Curran! At her core, Mary is a people person who loves real estate. It is this skill set and this passion for her business that propels Mary’s daily successes! Keep reading our blog below to learn more about our incredible W teammate, Mary.
What routines do you have in place to start your day off right?:
Coffee at Black Oak.
To what do you attribute your success most?:
I want to say dumb luck but maybe it is just that I am open and will talk to anyone at any time. I am not shy for sure!!!
What was the most difficult thing you had to overcome when first starting your real estate career? Or that still challenges you to this day?:
Not knowing forms and the different computer systems to make transactions easier. I still struggle but Steve Dickason and of course John my TC always saves the day!
What’s the transaction you are most proud of so far?:
Any transaction that resulted from me just talking to folks and being myself. It’s really rewarding to just be me and have people respond to that.
What is a unique aspect of the Sonoma/Mendocino/SF County Residential real estate market?:
It seems to me that everyone has an interest in Real Estate here. I don’t run across many people that have no interest or opinions about our market.
If work-life balance is important to you how can you tell if you are getting it right?:
It is really important to me, but my life is pretty simple. My husband and I both have fluid schedules so it’s easy for us to have downtime. I know it can be a real struggle for agents with kids, I couldn’t imagine how hard that must be.
What was the best vacation you ever had?:
Brugge Belgium is the best place I have ever been.
If you had one piece of advice for someone just starting out in real estate, what would it be?:
Don’t react to stuff right away. ” I will get back to you” is the best thing to say when you are faced with something challenging. It gives you time to think, discuss, and form your plan.
