On October 17, well over 50 Elmhurst Realtors gathered at Beer on the Wall to see each other in person for the first time in months.
As one of the meeting organizers, Paula Pezza, put it, “After 33 years in the real estate industry, I still love what I do, and I see how important it is to communicate and work together with other realtors for the benefit of our clients.”
Fellow organizer Ginny Leamy said, “Elmhurst Realtors are an amazing group of professionals. Technology has made some parts of real estate easier, but relationships and face-to-face engagement can’t be replaced by technology. We were excited to get a group of us of this size, together.”
Sue Hoerster, another organizer, added, “Relationships are an integral part of our job as Realtors, both with our clients and broker to broker. Staying in contact with the real estate professional on the other side of the table, along with treating them with courtesy and professionalism goes a long way toward building a solid reputation in the business.”
