Our Property Management's Secret...

Here at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Parks & Weisberg, Realtors® we have a little secret that we wanted to share with you. Our Property Management team launched their very own blog! They’ve been working incredibly hard on this new blog and already have some posts on the members that make up their team. Get a taste of their content here and then visit pm.bhhs.com/blog to view the entire post!

I actually stumbled into property management. Before coming toParks & Weisberg, Realtors® Property Management Division, I was offered a position in property management with a local property management company. I am a great people person, professional and organized which helped me in my property management career. My favorite thing about property management is meeting new people, networking and assisting owners with their biggest investment! Outside of work, I love to spend time with my kids at their sporting events and attend Louisville games. Go Cards! 

I sold real estate before in Southern Indiana plus I love houses and want to invest in property myself, so why not do it for a living? Property management is much harder...

Staying Relevant in a Changing Market

Real estate agents have an insanely competitive job with only the best agents succeeding. With that in mind, how do our agents stay on top of their game? Patience, perseverance and ambition to succeed helps to make an agent successful but that can benefit an agent so much. Practice is one of the keys to success. At Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Parks and Weisberg, Realtors®, we provide numerous trainings on different topics that an agent will encounter throughout their career. 

One of these trainings is what we refer to as New Agent Training. This program gives our new agents, whether new to the real estate game or new to the company, weekly training that includes sales and technical skills that allow our agents to list and sell with confidence! Our 90 Days to Success program allows our agents to put into practice what they learn each week as they apply new skills with daily and weekly tasks. The training also walks agents through various resources including our REsource Center, VoicePad, Lead REsource, Marketing REsource, email and phone system. Once an agent completes the New Agent Training, they can retake the training at any time or sit in on a specific training. A variety of trainings are also offered online which can allow an agent to learn on their own schedule!

Wedding Bell Frenzy: Olivia's Fairytale Wedding

As the air cools, the leaves turn and autumn begins, wedding season is coming to a close for many while the heat is on for two of our Realtors®, Dana Vetrano and Olivia Wrocklage, as their wedding dates get closer! Last week we shared the stunning story of Dana Vetrano and her soon-to-be husband, Michael Sansbury, growing together through many challenges and this week we wanted to share Olivia’s journey of love! 

How Olivia and AJ Peake met is reminiscent of a fairytale. Five years ago, Olivia serving as a bridesmaid at her sister’s wedding. Her escort down the aisle was AJ Peake. She had never met AJ but they hit it off immediately. Soon after the wedding, they began to date.

Both having a passion for travel and exploration, over the years they took numerous vacations together and traveled far and wide. 

Olivia couldn’t have been more surprised than the night AJ asked her to marry him. They had been making dinner, another activity they enjoyed together, when AJ told her he bought a new dessert wine. After dinner, he ran upstairs to grab the bottle and showed it to her.

Wedding Bell Frenzy: Dana's Dash to the Finish

September typically signals the end of wedding season but this year it begins the wedding season for two of our Realtors®, Dana Vetrano and Olivia Wrocklage. As their wedding dates creep closer, they rush to perfect the final details of their special day. This week we wanted to feature how Dana met, and fell in love, with her fiancé. 

Before Dana met her now-fiancé, Michael Sansbury, she never could have imagined all they would have conquered together. Dana had signed up for an online dating service, Match.com, and before she knew it, she had matched with Michael. They started dating soon after.

As their relationship got more serious, Dana asked Michael to be her RCIA sponsor, someone who served as a support system while she entered the Catholic faith. Michael supported her throughout the entire 15 month process. While Dana had Michael by her side, her favorite moment to experience next to him was her Baptism and Confirmation. That day will remain a special day for both of them.

Michael surprised her everyday with his thoughtfulness and love for her no matter what challenges presented themselves. The day Michael proposed was no different. One afternoon they were sitting on Michael’s sofa talking about their potential future together when he did something incredible.

How One Daring Move Absolutely Changed Her Life

At Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Parks and Weisberg, Realtors®, we believe that age isn’t an obstacle to success. We value the differences between our masters and our millennials because we know those differences are strengths. This week we wanted to introduce one of our Master Realtors®, Louise Miller. The story of how she became a Realtor® is truly inspiring as well as her interests outside of real estate.

Louise, then a teacher, had just moved to Louisville with two little boys in tow, one 5 and the other 7. Since she moved in the middle of the year, she signed up to be a sub and was waiting for a position. Louise became close with her agent during her hunt to find her new home in Louisville. That’s when her Realtor® told her something astonishing. 

“She said to me ‘You ought to be selling real estate’ and I said ‘Oh no I don’t think so’. And she said ‘You remember all the details of the houses you go into… It could be a house I showed to you two weeks ago and you could tell me what color the bathroom was…’ ”. 

Thinking real estate wasn’t for her, she turned her attention back to teaching and subbed throughout May. Subbing made it difficult to watch her young boys as they were in preschool and first...
