What’s new and exciting with your business? 

“New trends are popping up in homes after a year like no other. The ‘bar room’ is making a comeback. Lighting has become an essential part of new homes and home renovations. Televisions are popping up in every room in the house, but masking them as art is becoming all the rage. This past year forced families to consider outdoor living spaces with furniture updates, firepits and landscaping improvements.”

What is the silver lining of the recent pandemic for your business? 

“During the lockdown between March and May 2020, real estate transactions continued to happen virtually, which turned out to be a silver lining when we thought the industry was going to be shut down. The pandemic highlighted that a home is the most important investment and is the safest place to be in a crisis. So there’s been a greater urgency to own. The Payab Group pivoted quickly and continued to provide the highest level of service to our clients. One of the biggest realizations of this unprecedented time was that real estate stood strong.”

How do you attract the best talent to join your staff? 

“In addition to helping my clients, I truly enjoy helping others learn the business of real estate. To attract the best talent for my team, I work very hard to create a reputation as someone others want to work with and learn from. Training and teaching are key, and doing it to ensure their success is so important. By helping and encouraging my staff to succeed, The Payab Group grows and continues its success.”

How would clients describe you? 

“I believe my clients would describe me as honest, trustworthy, knowledgeable and someone who they truly know is on their side. In addition, they would say I am someone who keeps it real, who is passionate about making sure they’re happy but also someone who makes the process fun with a side of snark!”

Take a risk or play it safe in business? 

“Definitely take a risk! I think my choice of hair color shows my adventurous spirit and captivating personality. I am willing to take risks to get the very best results for my clients.”
