Q&A with Dawn Cusulos Award-Winning Property Leasing Agent of the Year 2014

Today we introduce you to Dawn Cusulos, she is AMSI’s award-winning and top producing Real Estate Agent, a Superwoman!

What do you like the most about working in Real Estate? It gives me great pleasure to see people happy once they have found a home, whether it’s a buyer or tenant.
What does a usual working day look like for you? My day starts first thing with calls or showings all day long. Oftentimes I work late since I have clients that may have odd work hours. But I don’t mind arranging appointments at times when others go home or meet with their friends and family, since this may close the deal.
What has been your biggest success and achievement in Real Estate so far? Closing hundreds of transactions over the years! Nice being noticed as a top producer in business!!
Do you believe that being a woman makes is easier or harder? No. I believe being true to your self with honesty and integrity is key.
You are a working mom and wife, but you are very successful in your job. Do you have any tips for other working moms? Being a working mom in the Real estate field works. I have flexibility and can work around many mom duties. My tip would be simply to take advantage of your flexibility and arrange your duties around your appointments, or the other way around. But you have to keep in mind that this might mean to arrange appointments at late hours to meet clients for showings.
The real estate market in San Francisco is very competitive but you belong to the top producer. What is it that distinguishes you from others in the industry? Honesty and being a good listener are great assets to being a top producer. Owners appreciate the value they may get from an Agent who takes time to listen and follow up with them. I have a positive attitude in this industry and owner’s may like it.
What do you like the most about working with AMSI? I love working at AMSI because it feels like family. Robb Fleischer is the best broker! I like the fact we are all team players.
Have you encountered a drop in the Real Estate Market during the recession? Has it been more difficult than before to make business? I have been very blessed due to referring business and owners calling me back over the years. I keep very busy and love it. I really do enjoy what I do!
