No industry has seen as much change in the recent past as the real estate industry. Between the sub-prime crisis, which gave rise to stricter lending requirements in addition to the onslaught of foreclosures and “short sales”, the information revolution, which changed the way people acquire facts and data to make purchasing decisions, and globalization, which has lead to significant cultural changes, it’s a new world. And the new world order became even more complicated with a pandemic which lasted two years and has had an equally dramatic impact on the real estate industry. Since the sale and purchase of real property, whether for home or for business, is so significant in our society and so steeped in tradition, the impact these forces have had and will continue to have on real estate transactions, has been nothing short of monumental.
A new breed of real estate professional is needed to keep pace with and respond to these significant changes. Anita Kazmierczak is such a real estate professional. She is the real estate professional/broker, of the future, and the future is now! While a licensed (in NJ and NY) real estate professional since 2005, Ms. Kazmierczak’s foray into home sales began at the exact time that the real estate market was slowing. Despite strong headwinds, she has managed to grow her own brokerage business year over year while the real estate market deteriorated. A full time commitment, a tremendous work ethic, strong negotiation skills with ability to act decisively and a “no nonsense” focus on solving problems has served Ms. Kazmierczak and her clients’ well!
From 2005 till 2010:
Anita had the opportunity to be involved in numerous and varied real estate transactions affording her the luxury of learning every facet of the business, from valuing real property to marketing and home staging through negotiating and closing.
