Life By Design: My Balancing Act

Life has its own design. You have a choice but it’s up to you to go with it, to walk through the open doors of opportunity. Sometimes an opportunity you never expected or weren’t looking for will present itself to you, and you have to recognize that it could elevate your life. This quote from Oprah says it all for me:

Though the canvas of your life is painted with daily experiences, behaviors, reactions, and emotions, you’re the one controlling the brush. -Oprah

I recently made the decision to partner with TOWN Residential.  This was a bold move for me, having worked so long to build Mark David & Company, but I am thrilled with TOWN Residential and what they have to offer and I knew at the end of the day that this was the best move for the life I’m building, for my own balancing act. Always be open to stepping into something that can take you in a new direction or to a new level, even if it wasn’t part of your plan!

My husband and I started Mark David & Company 10 years ago with a lot of passion for New York Real Estate, some contacts, and a lot of faith. What we built is something I’m very proud of, and after thousands of transactions with 80-plus agents, still nothing compares to the satisfaction of each client’s experience with our company.  When this opportunity arose, I knew that by joining forces with TOWN there would be greater opportunities, especially capitalizing on my existing relationships through TOWN’s unique combination of training and marketing tools and customer service. During our 10 years at Mark David & Company, we built so many relationships – many in high end Sales & Rentals and Investment & Commercial Buildings – and we wanted to be able to serve those clients with the very best resources in the industry in a way that was fruitful for all parties involved.

The choice to move to TOWN ultimately was about finding the best place for us to benefit from those relationships, and what we can offer in return.  Three of the many reasons we connected with TOWN are that we share the same love for our city, the same belief that we define our own neighborhoods as much as they shape us, and the same passion for being on the forefront of technology and marketing in a constantly changing industry.  I’m so excited to join TOWN and fit what we’ve been doing with The {New York} Life into my work!  TOWN will be a great partner in Real Estate but also in the social media arena.  This is going to be a great new journey!
