City Spotlight Miami Springs

I had the honor of hosting the City Spotlight for the City of Miami Springs with Mayor Maria Puente Mitchell and Miami Realtors. The Mayor shared some great information about the revitalization of the Miami Circle and 36th street. I was able to share a market update about the Miami Springs real estate market and our Miami Realtors CEO, Teresa Kinney, presented our new Global headquarters, which will be in the heart of Miami Springs!


Thank you to everyone who attended! Make sure to follow @themiamirealtors to learn about future City Spotlight events!

 


Lady LeadHers Panel! 🤩

I had the pleasure of concluding the month of March, which is Women's History Month, by hosting an all-woman panel featuring MIAMI REALTORS Leaders from our different boards of governors at the Miami Association of Realtors. We discussed leadership, struggles and how women can continue to be innovators in the real estate industry.

Thank you to my fellow Realtor LeadHers, Ines Hegedus-Garcia, Tamika Moses, Ana Bozovic, Shakearah Rolle, and Kyshana Guzman for their leadership and for taking part in this panel discussion.

A full recording of the virtual event is below. If you have any questions about what it means to be a leader in the real estate industry, I would love to be a resource for you. Please let me know if you have any questions.

 

 


Chandra Etienne Elected to Lead MIAMI Realtors Young Professionals Network

I had the honor and privilege of being installed as the 2022 Miami YPN President! There is still a lot of work to be done to ensure that our real estate leaders across the country at every level accurately represent the communities that they serve. So, I want to thank @themiamirealtors for giving this young, Black woman born of Haitian Immigrant parents the opportunity to serve as the 2022 President for Miami YPN at the nation's largest local Realtor association, and let’s admit, the best Realtor Association in the world. Although I’m the one on this stage, this is so much bigger than me. So, thank you. 🙏🏾🙌🏾

I look forward to serving alongside the other great leaders who are also installed -  Fernando Arencibia Jr., Brad Westover, Michael D Hinton, Enrique Teran and David Dweck. I’d also like to thank all of our loyal customers, agents, and affiliates for believing in us, my friends and family for supporting me.

It has been an honor, privilege and a blessing to be serving on the Miami YPN board since 2019. Serving alongside other professionals who are just as passionate about our association and our industry as a whole makes this even more of a fulfilling experience! As the 2022 Miami YPN President, the goal is to expand on our national global connections and relationships, improve and develop new educational curriculum and events to help with professional development, and to strategically collaborate with all of the other boards to provide even more value to our Realtor members. Together we are better, and I can't wait to see what our boards and associations accomplish together this year!

New Development Class - Miami YPN

As a Miami Realtors Leader, I have the pleasure of teaching various topics to other agents in the marketplace on behalf of Miami Realtors and Miami YPN. The most recent class that I taught was about New Constructions and New Developments. I went over very specific things that all agents should know when representing a buyer who is purchasing a home or condo from a new home builder or condo developer.

Although the class is intended for real estate agents, I believe that many buyers in the marketplace will find it extremely valuable. You will be able to learn how purchasing new construction is much different than purchasing resale, and why it is PERTINENT to always have a real estate agent represent you.

Here are a few reasons why buyers should ALWAYS hire an agent to represent them:

  • The on-site agent and sales team represents the builder, not the buyer
  • It is usually free for you to have us represent you! Our commission is paid by the builder
  • Buying new construction is VERY different from buying a resale
  • An experienced agent will know what to negotiate (certain things are non-negotiable with builders)
  • Resale value — we know what upgrades to invest in

I was joined by Marcelo Steinmander, a fellow Miami YPN Leader, in teaching this class.
