SYOSSET, NY; MARCH 15, 2011 - The new boutique real estate agency, Homes By Mara, is proud to welcome Jamie Persky-Mitchnick of Syosset, NY to its real estate team. After a 13 year legal career, which began as an associate with Samuel & Weininger of Lake Success, NY and continued as president of J. Persky & Associates, P.C. in Melville, NY and New York City, Mitchnick says she is delighted to join Homes By Mara as its newest licensed associate broker.

"I view the real estate industry as another extension of helping people get to where they want to be, whether they are upsizing, downsizing or relocating," explains Mitchnick. "The current economy allows for more affordable home options, giving first- time home buyers a long-awaited opportunity to move to Long Island and take advantage of the great schools, safe neighborhoods and active lifestyle that Long Island has to offer. Because of the stabilization of the housing market, people no longer have to put off their retirements or delay selling or buying their homes. I am delighted that I can be instrumental in assisting them through this process. "

While some may find the business aspects of selling or buying a home to be daunting, Mitchnick says her legal experience is a compliment to the service she offers. "My legal background has not only provided me with broader knowledge than is usually possessed by real estate brokers, but allows me to offer clients the benefit of more than a decade of experience in effectively handling complex negotiations and litigation. I bring to the table an impeccable reputation for dedicated service and accountability."

Homes By Mara President Mara Navaretta says she is excited to have Mitchnick on her team. "Jamie is someone who is well-versed in client relations and understands the meaning and value of service," explains Ms. Navaretta. "She is a terrific asset to our operations and the array of clients we serve."

Prior to joining the real estate sector, Mitchnick did her due diligence before determining that Homes By Mara was the ideal choice. "In selecting an agency to align myself with, it was important to identify one that shared my high standard of ethics and allowed for mutual respect," she says. "I contacted several top agents in the community and was pleased to receive only positive feedback about Mara, whom competitors described as being a hard working, considerate, experienced real estate agent."

A graduate of SUNY Binghamton and Hofstra School of Law, Mitchnick has lived in Syosset, NY for 16 years. Before joining Homes By Mara in January 2011, she achieved the rank of Executive Area Manager with the internet-based health and wellness company, Arbonne International. Through her association with this California-based company, Mitchnick was able to help herself and others supplement their existing income while working home-based in Syosset. As a corollary to her work with Arbonne, she founded and continues to administrate the not-for-profit community group, The Mid Island Women's Network, as a resource for helping women make the business and personal connections they need in order to get to the next level in their lives.
