Coldwell Banker Bain Features Michele Sucevich and Lisa Whittaker in Agent Recognition Program
Coldwell Banker Bain
Being of service is basically what being in real estate is all about. The best brokers understand this and, in return, reap the kind of word of mouth and repeat business that fuel their success.
Michele Sucevich, a Coldwell Banker Bain broker in Oregon City, excels at serving the men and women who serve our country. She has a real affinity for working with USAA members and “goes above and beyond to get them what they need, no matter the price range,” says Oregon City PMB Penny Yaw. “It’s her way of giving back to the vets who sacrifice so much for us.”
Working with veterans who may have limited or tight budgets is a challenge, but Michele is able to tap not only two different listing services that allow her to search outlying properties that may be more affordable for her clients, but also tap her network of lenders who offer special loan programs for vets that get them qualified and into homes.
Transactions become particularly tricky when the service personnel is sent out on a mission and communication between broker and client is conducted during different time zones. But Michele is dogged in her mission and her negotiating skills are on point. With a terrific success rate and lots of repeat clients, Michele’s passion to serve others clearly serves her business too.
That Lisa Whittaker, a longtime Bellevue broker now in CB Bain’s new Lincoln Square office, capably serves her clients is evident in the fact that 90% of her business comes from repeat clients and referrals. What may be less obvious is her willingness to go the extra mile for her colleagues. A consummate team player who is quick to help coworkers with a CMA/pricing opinion, contract questions or personal advice (when asked, of course!), Lisa continually thinks about what is beneficial for the Coldwell Banker Bain brand and not just herself, notes Lisa’s assistant, Melissa Holtzclaw.
“She is so understanding and flexible with my schedule and would rather run around like crazy than to ask me for help on the weekends,” Melissa says.
In addition to her standing as a Global Luxury Director, a measure of her success in the luxury sphere, Lisa exhibits the same high level of integrity with peers as she does with clients. Her ability to nurture strong relationships within the office speaks volumes about the company culture she fosters and it explains why she is such a great ambassador for the Lincoln Square office and Coldwell Banker Bain.
If it’s true that leadership is service to others, Coldwell Banker Bain is well served by Michele and Lisa.
