SYOSSET, NY - Linda Freedman of Syosset, NY has been named "Annual Production Leader" by Homes By Mara Realty of Syosset, NY. Freedman earned this designation generating the largest annual home sales among the Homes By Mara team, producing more than eight million dollars in volume on the home buying and selling front, with an average home priced at $562,125.
Freedman attributes her high productivity to a customer service approach that capitalizes on personal skill and strength. "It is an honor being named the top producer for 2011," says Freedman. "Delivering ultimate quality service, upholding a high level of communication and honesty, coupled with my knowledge of the market and 30 years of experience in negotiating, marketing and listening to the needs of my sellers and buyers, are among the influential factors that have helped shape my success. What is so great in all of this is that I have been able to build a tremendous level of trust and confidence among my clients who now regard me as that "go-to-person" for not only real estate, but for expertise on community."
She adds that mastering a fine balance between relationships and independence has also been a key contributor to her efficiency within the real estate arena. "The partnerships you form are so important today, whether it is teaming with colleagues from Homes By Mara or with other agents, builders and investors, the establishment of partnerships provides you with a level of support for achieving results. But, it is equally important to demonstrate leadership and that you stay ahead of the market, remain open to taking risks, and are able to think outside the box."
"I am pleased to name Linda as Homes By Mara's Annual Production Leader," says Homes By Mara Founder and President Mara Navaretta. "While Linda has proven to be highly productive in terms of agency sales, she has also been productive on many other levels. She has become a catalyst in broadening my agency's reach as well as in growing my skilled team of agents. She is always working in the trenches, holding the hands among those who need it the most, which complements my mission in delivering high quality attention and service for our clientele."
Before moving into the real estate sector, Freedman, a Syracuse University graduate, spent 30 years working for several Fortune 500 companies, which included Macy's Department Stores, where she served as a buyer and divisional merchandise manager. She was also a merchandise manager for the French-based company, Galeries Lafayette, and for Avon Products. Additionally, she was VP of Merchandising for Sunglass Hut's division, Watch World.
After a comprehensive career in retail and marketing, Freedman decided it was time for a change and made the switch to real estate. Upon transitioning into the real estate arena, Freedman first worked as an agent for Century 21 Prevete's Syosset, NY office before joining Laffey Fine Homes' Syosset, NY office, where she worked as a broker alongside Navaretta. She left Laffey Fine Homes in spring 2010 upon having learned of Navaretta establishing her own boutique agency, which opened its doors in September 2010.
