Q1. Did you know that you were going to win?
I actually had no idea I was going to win. Barbara Sgueglia, Chairman of the Board, reached out to my husband 2 months ago to tell him I had won. We even all had drinks together one evening prior and they didn’t say a word about it. My husband, Aaron, had also asked me for my bio recently and lied about what it was for. As for the day of, they tricked me into sitting up front unknowingly. It truly was a surprise.
Q2. What does winning this mean to you?
It is a verification of all the hard work the team has done for property management in the Hampton Roads Area. Property Management can be a very thankless profession. This award shows that we are effective and knowledgeable in the property management services we offer.
Q3. What’s your favorite part about being a Property Manager?
My favorite thing about being a Property Manager is making things work. I am all about the processes. Whenever there is any kind of problem, we put a solution in place so that it never happens again.
Q4. Is there anyone you’d like to thank or mention?
This award has very little to do with me and everything to do with our Property Management Team and the work that they do.
True story, back in 2016 when Kris Weaver, Principal Broker, asked me to consider this position I said “Okay, but I want the opportunity to go back to being a full-time agent if it doesn’t work out.” And he said “No. You’re either all in or all out.” From that moment on, I was all in.
Please join us in congratulating Phil on his recent achievements! Here at Atlantic Sotheby’s International Realty, it is our mission to provide our clientele with the highest standard of Real Estate Services. This Includes our extraordinary Property Management Division.
