SYOSSET, NY - Boutique real estate agency, Homes By Mara of Syosset, NY is pleased to announce broker Linda Freedman of Syosset, NY as its "Quarterly Production Leader." Freedman earned this designation generating the largest first quarter home sales among the Homes By Mara team, producing more than three million dollars in volume on the home buying and selling front.
"Being recognized as a topproducer for first quarter of 2011 is not only a great honor but also real proof that the real estate market is improving and heading in the right direction,"says Freedman. "I am very passionate, committed and motivated in achieving results but, most importantly, providing my customers with the ultimate experience and superior service."
While Freedman has proven to be a top producer at Homes By Mara, its Founder and President Mara Navaretta says that Freedman has also emerged as a strong and dependable leader among home buyers and sellers. "Linda is not only a fine compliment to Homes By Mara's operation, but also to its mission in delivering high quality attention and service for our clients," says Navaretta. "Her expertise in communication, problem solving and negotiation is top notch, which means our clients receive quality representation throughout the entire real estate transaction process."
Freedman attributes her success to taking a "pro-active" approach in building strong, trusting relationships with buyers and sellers. "To be competitive in this market, you have to be quick to react, price homes to sell and stay on the cutting edge of technology," she explains. "With a limited amount of homes for sale in such areas as Jericho, Syosset and Woodbury, you have to think 'out-of-the-box.' Several transactions are based in finding homes for my buyers that were not on the market. Consistent communication is vital. For my sellers, I review marketing plans and provide weekly feedback to ensure that we remain on target in achieving their goals all the way to the closing table."
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.
Freedman left Laffey Fine Homes in spring 2010 upon having learned of Navaretta establishing her own boutique agency, which opened its doors in September 2010. "Teaming with Mara was a win-win for both of us," says Freedman. "To be part of a ground floor opportunity and support the growth and development of a business that can make a difference in the community was a perfect fit."
