What's your background, education and training?

Believe it or not, I graduated college with a degree in Early Childhood Education; however, in regards to real estate, I enjoy the many classes and trainings I've taken that discuss the importance of social media and how to promote not only yourself, but your listings. Social media didn't exist when I started out in 1991, so I'm eager to learn all I can to maximize results for my clients.

What is your typical process for working with a new client?

The most important thing to remember is that buyers and sellers have different needs, so the process is never the same. However, the one constant across the board for me is my role as a trusted advisor. It doesn't make a difference if my new client has never purchased a home, has purchased five homes, or has never sold a home, each transaction is different so it requires expert opinion. My job as an agent is to educate them on the process and make sure they have realistic expectations.

What advice would you give a client looking to find a provider in your specialty?

You should always do your homework before you commit to working with anyone that will be providing you a service. You should look at reviews and talk to past clients of theirs. As someone who gets 98% of her business from referrals, that should be the most important thing you consider when it comes to making that decision.

What inspired your passion for your profession?

I worked with a couple of real estate agents when I was buying my first home. I wasn't that impressed! I never felt that they listed or understood my needs. It seemed as though the first two agents only cared about selling me anything so they would benefit and not me. Finally, the third agent only showed me one house, and I lived in that house for twenty years. She knew it would be a great fit, and it was! But her professionalism didn't stop after the transaction was complete. She connected me with several contractors, neighbors and familiarized me with the town. That experience sparked a passion in me that still exists today. I always strive to be the kind of broker she was to me, and to always go above and beyond.

What services are you most excited to offer?

I am very resourceful. I understand the needs of clients, whether they are purchasing their first home or selling a house they raised a family in. Over the years I have built a reputable database including moving services, painters, designers, electricians, plumbers, pediatricians, markets, shopping centers and playgrounds within the community. At the end of the day, it's not just my job to sell a home, it's my mission to find the right community for my clients.

What is the best reaction you’ve ever received from a client?

I had a client send me ten referrals in one year after I sold him a home.

What makes your business stand apart?

Being a principal owner of Benoit Mizner Simon & Co. and having over 25 years of experience, I would say honesty and integrity are a given. Any quality broker should possess these traits. But I think what sets me apart is my ability to always put others needs before my own. Listening to my clients needs are paramount and it is the cornerstone of my business. It's my duty as an agent to over deliver to my clients.

How many years have you been in business?

28 years
