WR: What drew you to the real estate industry?
SS: I have always worked in design and sales. It seemed like a perfect fit for the real estate industry. When I moved to the suburbs from NYC, I bought a house for sale by owner and then bought and sold another two homes direct. Once I had these transactions under my belt, it made the idea of working in real estate a reality. Also, I grew up in Armonk and for me, selling homes that I knew from childhood really sang to my heart. It was easy and natural.
