San Francisco, CA – April 23, 2012 – Danielle Lazier, Zephyr Real Estate agent, just became a licensed real estate broker. California’s rigorous requirements for this achievement include a written examination just to apply for the licensure. A sterling record, current relevant experience and completion of multiple college-level courses are also part of the criteria. Only one in four members of the California Association of Realtors achieves this distinction.
This step in her career path is right on track with her detailed and well-structured business plan. Lazier is also Zephyr’s #1 Companywide Top Producing Agent for 2011. Having sold upwards of 60 properties last year, Lazier ranks among the top one-half of one percent of real estate agents in all of San Francisco. “I am serious about constantly learning and striving to improve,” she commented. “I research and prepare. I use a combination of knowledge, intuition and emotional intelligence to assist my clients.”
Lazier is a long-time blogger and, in fact, began blogging even before it was called blogging. Her SFHotlist.com
blog is widely read and highly respected, and is often used as a source throughout the industry. Her fresh and astute insights are not just about properties but also about the distinctive lifestyle of San Francisco residents.
“I chose Danielle as my listing agent because she was the first one who not only understood my needs, but knew who would be interested in the purchase. She put together a strong marketing plan and actively promoted the property. The result was an offer over asking on the eleventh day,” according to Meg, one of many satisfied clients. “Danielle and her associate Kristen helped me find tradespeople for last minute fix-ups. I was at wit’s end and they just calmly gave me a name and number and voila – no more drama, which best describes how Danielle works. She is knowledgeable, experienced and resourceful. I strongly recommend her to anyone selling or buying in the San Francisco area.”
Lazier is also a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS). This is the highest designation awarded to sales associates in residential real estate. The CRS designation recognizes professional accomplishments in both experience and education. Currently, only one in every 25 licensees is a Certified Residential Specialist.
“Danielle has every reason to be proud, and we are proud to be part of her continued success,” commented Randall Kostick, Zephyr’s Chief Operating Officer. “She is an inspiration and a model of focused motivation.”
Lazier works from Zephyr’s Noe Valley office at 4040 24th Street. She is a member in good standing in the San Francisco Association, California Association and National Association of REALTORS®. She may be reached at 415.695.8805 x196 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
