As a second-generation broker, I owe everything to the real estate industry. I can remember touring Sunday open houses as a toddler, and am now proud to support my own family of four in the same way my dad did. After six years of residential sales and managing his ERA franchise in Rocky River, I was hired by Redfin Corporation in 2014 to launch our Cleveland and Columbus markets as Market Manager and Principal Broker. In my current role I’m responsible for our Cleveland, Columbus, and Cincinnati markets’ P&L margin, revenue and customer satisfaction. I represent Redfin to local media, MLS and peers in our brokerage community. I also manage our Ohio markets’ managers, listing specialists and buyer agents, helping to develop them as team members and advance their careers. This is a critical time for the MLS. A clear focus on creating a fair system that brokerages contribute to is the power of the MLS and it’s how we support an open marketplace. We need a level playing field where brokers of all shapes and sizes can compete and the ultimate winner will be the people buying and selling homes in Northeast Ohio.
