Congratulations to Carol Alber, who has been named our Agent of the Month for October. She is celebrating 25 years with Roger Fazendin REALTORS® this year. We sat down and talked to Carol to find out a little more about her and her career.
What made you get started in residential real estate? It’s a funny story, but it was a simple conversation that caused her to evaluate what she was doing with her life and it motivated her to try real estate.
Why real estate – why not something else? My children were young and I thought it would afford me some flexibility. Plus I could see the potential to make this a lifelong career. My importantly, I truly enjoy people and this is a people job!
Why Roger Fazendin REALTORS®? This is the only place that has ever held my license. The size really attracted me – it was not a mega size company – not overwhelming. It felt like the right size and the right place and it has been and will continue to be a good fit for me.
What is your favorite thing about being a REALTOR®? I get to meet and really get to know people that I otherwise would never get the opportunity to connect with. You develop a relationship and closeness with them. It’s a privilege to help them with the process of a move. There are never two situations the same – each one is different and that keeps me challenged and motivated.
What is your favorite part of the real estate transaction? It is most satisfying to me to put together all the pieces – to complete the negotiations and know you’ve done the best you can for your clients and to see everything through to completion. That is the success in my business and a sense of accomplishment for me and for them.
Carol – how do you continue to achieve Agent of the Month on such a consistent basis? A lot of luck! Also it is the referrals of past clients who know that I am going to give 110% the entire time. I appreciate that they are willing to recommend me and are loyal to me and the service that I truly enjoy providing!
Carol does a wonderful job each and every day serving home buyers, home sellers and relocation clients. If she can assist you with questions or information, please do not hesitate to contact her at Roger Fazendin REALTORS®.
