This post is the second in a series of Fonville Morisey “Branch Bits” as we feature the FM Lochmere Sales Office during the month of September.
This past Monday was the national Labor Day holiday, a time when as a nation we pay a yearly tribute to the American worker and all that they have contributed to the “strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country” . For most, it’s a day off. For those of us in real estate, it might mean we continue to show a house to a perspective buyer, prepare a contract, contact a client, or all of the above (don’t worry – we do get time to relax too!). So, we at Fonville Morisey Lochmere thought it would be a great time to reflect on what it is we do as REALTORS® with the “Labor of Love” we have created in the team here at our sales office.
FM Lochmere is located at the corner of Lochmere Drive and Kildaire Farm Road in Cary, within a stone’s throw of US 1 and other major routes. We’re not far from Wake Med Cary, right next to Bocci Italian Restaurant in the Lochmere Pavillion and just down the road from Harold D. Ritter Park. We’re convenient to everything!
But, that’s not what makes us desirable. That’s just location.
We are a supportive, positive, and productive sales office, which really just makes us a family. While we pride ourselves on the accomplishments of our 100+ Agents (professionally and personally), we’re more than just a high-producing “work horse”, we like to have fun too! Our “Party Deck” overlooking the lake is often filled with afternoon laughter. We’ve held baby showers, engagement soirees, Birthday parties, etc. out there whenever the weather cooperates…which is often!
Says our Jeanette Bell –
“I love the opportunity to work at the Fonville Morisey Lochmere office, and help folks find a home to meet their personal needs. What a joy to meet new Agents and be their “go to person” as they transition through a buy or a sale transaction with the confidence that the decisions they are making are correct ones. The life-long friends that have come into my life through my work as a REALTOR with Fonville Morisey Lochmere make my job not just a job because I know I’ve made a difference to my clients and to my team.”
Giselle Morgan adds –
“I love working at our Fonville Morisey Lochmere office! Not only is it a beautiful central office sitting on the lake, but the people is really what makes it tick. There’s a great team spirit with everyone helping each other. Our lenders and staff are supportive too and always with a smile! With well over a hundred agents there is an invaluable level of diverse expertise.”
Jeanette and Giselle aren’t the only ones who feel this way. Watch the video below for more.
Of course, none of this would be possible if it weren’t for excellent leadership, the kind of leaders that make you want to do your job and do your job 110%. That’s what our Sales Manager, Carolyn Kasdorf and Associate Manager, Renee Smith do for us. Let us not forget our fantastic FM Lending Loan Officers, Anthony Pellegrino and Steve Fitzpatrick, who are there to assist our clients with all their lending needs. The team that they are strengthens and leads us all in the team that WE are.
And that’s what working with the good folks at FM Lochmere is all about. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this piece!
