It is with great pride that I introduce my esteemed colleague Gloria Hernandez as the branch manager for the firm’s Pelham Market Center. Gloria has been licensed for over 15 years and brings a wide range of experience to the position, but what I love most about her is her dry wit- few people can make me really laugh with a subtle reference to an arcane bit of culture or art, but in this she is a virtuoso.
I first met Gloria when she was a manager at another firm in a difficult short sale transaction. She was supremely professional, patient to the point of existential serenity, and on top of things. It is times like these that it never enters your imagination that you’d be lucky enough to play for the same team, but that’s exactly what happened about a year later when she joined us as an associate broker. In her first year she won the Leadership Award for 2014, and exemplified a commitment to her fellow team members that was selfless.
A few weeks ago, I decided the firm needed a leadership board of experienced agents (more on that another time) to help advise me on matters, and Gloria was a natural fit. Never one to let grass grow under her feet, she immediately called a meeting to run some ideas past me. About a half hour into some really substantial brain food, we both had an epiphany that she’d be perfect to be the full time manager of the Pelham branch. We started that office in late 2014 but I had been the acting manager, with respectable results I suppose, but I’m certain that with Gloria in charge the market center there will flourish.
It was also the shortest tenure of any agent on the Leadership Board ever, as managers are excluded: one meeting! Progress like that is no surprise to Gloria, as she holds a Masters from Purdue University, and possesses experience in clinical psychology and nutrition. Gloria lives in Sleepy Hollow with her husband and cat. She is also bilingual.
The Pelham market center is our firm’s present in the southern Westchester County market. It serves the Sound Shore to Yonkers, the Bronx, and all communities south of the I-287 corridor. You can reach Gloria at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her directly at 914.4410980. If you prefer to press the flesh, stop by the office for coffee at 134A Fifth Avenue, Pelham NY 10803.
