EXIT Realty Shines in YPN's 'Top 20 Under 40'
On June 29, 2016, LIBOR's (Long Island Board of Realtors®) YPN (Young Professional Network) honored 20 realtors under age 40 from Long Island and Queens for their success in their careers in real estate. Among those 20 honorees, 4 were from EXIT Realty. More specifically, 2 were from EXIT Kingdom Realty, and the others were from EXIT Homestart and EXIT Family. They were chosen not only for their accomplishments in real estate, but for their involvement in their communities and ability to overcome obstacles in their field.
Susan Wu and Sherry Harrilal were the honorees from EXIT Kingdom Realty. Susan is a Licensed Real Estate Salesperson whose alma mater is the Zicklin School of Business at Baruch College. She was passionate about real estate for a long time, and as such, she started out by finding and managing investment properties for herself, family and friends. She is highly knowledgeable in the real estate industry, and prides herself not only in her ability to navigate a home buyer/seller through the process, but in her level of compassion to her clients and dedication to the field. It's no wonder she comes from a real estate company that prides itself in its innovative advertising and marketing techniques and its dedication to buyer needs. She is fluent in Mandarin and Taiwanese, and can speak Cantonese, and has amassed certain skills over her career that allow her to shine among young people in real estate. In the past, working in sales at a highly regarded metal recycling company gave her experience with communicating and negotiating with people. Her passion outside of real estate is volleyball, where she learns to be a leader on the court and in her field. Being honored as one of the top 20 real estate professionals under 40 is fitting for a salesperson with her background and ability to reach out to the community.
Sherry Harrilal is a Licensed Real Estate Salesperson who hails from Trinidad and Tobago, and as such, she takes pride in her hospitality. Her clients frequently rave about their positive experience with her and her ability to facilitate the real estate process. Her focus and determination come from a passion not only for real estate, but for having a significant positive impact on those who go to her for guidance in the field of owning a home. For her, compassion is a key quality, as she says that she is "always grateful to bring about a smile on [her] clients' faces." Her disposition makes her a perfect fit for EXIT Kingdom Realty, and her kindness and solicitude for her clients as well as her makes it easy to see why a real estate salesperson of her caliber and background would be honored as one of the top 20 real estate professionals under 40.
Steven Brodesser is the honoree from EXIT Family Realty, and he specializes in aiding first time home buyers. He is a Licensed Sales Agent. He understands trends in the real estate market and stands out when it comes to his listings. He guides his clients through their concerns as home buyers and sellers by educating them so that they can make good decisions. He has earned his CBR Designation and his expertise in real estate makes him a perfect honoree for this accolade.
EXIT Homestart Realty's honoree is Robert Schwendel. This Licensed Real Estate Associate Broker has a great understanding of the real estate market and is exceptional at helping first time buyers find a home. He also aids his communities in various ways, such as "teaching/coaching children with autism to play basketball and soccer, as well as running an adult basketball league, riding 220+ miles on a bicycle each September for Breast Cancer Awareness in Young Women and being part of local community weekend events." Schwendel's expertise and willingness to help his community are some of the reasons why he deserves to be honored as one of the top 20 real estate professionals under 40.
The commitment that these EXIT Realty professionals have to their field and their communities is outstanding, and it is easy to see why they were rewarded with this honor. They demonstrate the qualities that real estate professionals, no matter what their age should have.
