Ten: Keri Chambers on the Road to Success

27 June, 2013 posted by: Shaun Osher

Welcome to Ten, CORE founder and CEO Shaun Osher’s rapid-fire interview series with prominent CORE figures. Read on to find out how this week’s subject deals with being on the hot seat.

Since joining CORE, Keri Chambers has quickly become known for her attention to detail and knack for design, both of which make her asset to the world of New York City real estate. Keri acknowledges, however, that it isn’t always easy to balance all that life has thrown at her. Here are Keri’s answers to Ten questions:

1) How did you get into the business of selling real estate?              photo

I was working for a pharmaceutical company and was building and designing a few speculative homes as a hobby. I realized very quickly that I could be selling the homes myself. So, while on maternity leave, I took real estate class online. I later quit the pharmaceutical company, started a design and real estate company and sold my own homes – which transitioned into selling other builder’s homes.

2) What has changed about the industry since you first started?

For starters, I am selling apartments instead of single family homes and estates. Also, I began my real estate career when the market was at its peak. So I have experienced the highs and unfortunate lows of the market.

3) What was your most favorite or challenging deal?

My favorite deal would have to be selling my neighbor’s condo. I showed it to one client that I thought would love it and got the exact figure the sellers wanted. They were so gracious and pleased with the painless process from start to finish that they doubled my commission.

My most challenging deal was selling my own condo. Being a single mother, it made it difficult with two kids in the house. It made me appreciate my clients even more.

NYC Buying Tips From HGTV’S “Frontdoor.Com”

25 June, 2013 posted by: CORE

With a number of diverse neighborhoods, types of residences and contract variations to choose from, purchasing real estate in New York City can be both a unique and daunting process.  To better navigate the Manhattan real estate market, here are some key tips presented by our friends at HGTV’s  FrontDoor.com that buyers should know before purchasing in The Big Apple.

Level with your co-op broker about your financial situation.

In the high-priced market of New York City, co-ops are the easiest way to break into home ownership. About 80 percent of the housing stock in Manhattan is cooperatives, and each one has different financial standards. It’s important to be up front with your broker so they know what you’re qualified to buy.

If you don’t have the cash to make a 20 to 25 percent down payment, some co-ops will allow you to use gift money, while others will not.

Also, some co-ops require that you have a certain amount of cash reserves after the purchase — sometimes equal to the purchase price. Putting all your financial information on the table can help your broker find a co-op that’s perfect for you.

Ten: Elizabeth Kosich on Branding and the Future of CORE

19 June, 2013 posted by: Shaun Osher

Welcome to Ten, CORE founder and CEO Shaun Osher’s rapid-fire interview series with prominent CORE figures. Read on to find out how this week’s subject deals with being on the hot seat.

CORE has set the standard for the importance of holistic branding for New York City real estate brokerage firms. Elizabeth Kosich, CORE’s Director of Marketing and Digital Strategy, is an expert in ensuring brand alignment across all media platforms. Since joining CORE this past spring, Elizabeth has been an integral part of our success.

1) How long have you been working in the marketing industry? kosich headshot 1

I’ve been in brand marketing for nearly 20 years.

2) How did you get into the business?

In 1994, I started branding Silicon Valley start-ups and haven’t looked back since. It’s such fun work to build brands, especially the creative aspects of the process.

3) Why did you join CORE?

Besides being an exciting company, CORE is at a critical point in its brand development. CORE has achieved such a strong brand presence within a short period of time, which is truly remarkable. Moving forward, however, it’s important to anchor the brand with a strong foundation so that its identity is preserved and remains intact as the business grows. That excites me.

4) What is your greatest daily challenge?

Other than there not being enough hours in the day, maintaining a consistent brand identity is an ongoing challenge. CORE gets tremendous exposure across multiple marketing channels (print, web, press, Selling New York, etc.) so maintaining a holistic and coherent brand image requires a daily dose of discipline, focus and consistency.
