Working from the Weichert Short Hills Office, Victoria and her team effectively service New Jersey communities located along the Midtown Direct Train line to New York City’s Penn Station. By utilizing her unique set of skills acquired during her varying careers, Victoria has managed to master the universe of Real Estate.
A Brooklyn native, Victoria attended St. Francis College and then received her Master’s Degree in Food Service Management from Rutgers University. Victoria worked as a registered dietician for several years before working her way into food service management where she rose to the level of Executive Director of the food service department for the New York City Department of Corrections. Eventually Victoria was hired away by Saks Fifth Avenue to serve as Vice President of Store Operations. In this position Victoria was responsible for negotiating and managing the lease business of third party companies who occupy space in Saks Fifth Avenue stores across the country, often negotiating million dollar deals. It was while searching for homes that Victoria discovered a natural segue to a career in Real Estate. “I was looking to find a career that enabled me to use my past experience and skill set in an environment that also provided more flexibility to raise my children. I found that with Real Estate.”
Victoria began her Real Estate career with Burgdorff Realtors; a well-known New Jersey based company that was later sold to Coldwell Banker. Out of 700 agents in the area, Victoria ranked as the companies top agent. With hard work and dedication she achieved the number one ranking out of all 33,000 agents nationwide. In 2012, Victoria moved to Weichert, Realtors in Short Hills and has continued to achieve #1 status both regionally and nationally on a regular basis. Victoria attributes much of her success to servicing the towns of Summit, Short Hills, Milburn, Maplewood, South Orange, Livingston and Montclair. “This area has great schools, classic homes with traditional style, and a variety of desirable communities—each with their own personality and style, and all very accessible to New York City.” While Victoria does not limit herself to any specific market, she admits her strong suits are with first and second time buyers as well as relocation and luxury buyers. Victoria believes that what sets her apart from other Realtors® is her authenticity. “I am very transparent in how I do business. I am a straight shooter, responsive in every way, a strong negotiator; tough but fair, well versed, and extremely knowledgeable in my field.”
Assembling a team, which consists of three Buyer’s Agents, a Transaction Coordinator and a Marketing Specialist, has allowed Victoria’s business to reach higher levels of success. “My team is a critical component to how I operate, and enables me to spearhead our initiative and provide the highest level of customer service.” Victoria’s administrative team is critical to client communication and making sure nothing falls through the cracks. Coordinating smooth transactions above all else is Victoria’s ultimate goal. In addition, Victoria’s Buyer’s Agents are incredibly helpful and knowledgeable and often assist in home tours with buyers to make sure client’s needs are met in a timely fashion. “I cannot be in two places at one time, so this keeps the wheels in motion and the train on the track, so we don’t miss an opportunity when it presents itself! I couldn’t do this without my team.”
Outside of Real Estate, Victoria is active in local community service and when time permits, she loves traveling, cooking, shopping and movies. Victoria admits she has little time to enjoy these hobbies as she remains 100% committed to her career and family. Victoria has earned her signature line of “The Above and Beyond Realtor®” by being named a Five Star Professional for Customer Service for New Jersey Realtors ® by New Jersey Monthly Magazine for four consecutive years. “I chose this career because I love helping people realize their dreams in finding the perfect home for their families. Helping people successfully and easily navigate the hurdles to accomplish their goal is the most gratifying part of what I do.”
