BHHS Fox & Roach, Spring House

15 Years Active in Real Estate

Please expand on your previous leadership experience

I started my Real Estate career in 2007. In 2008-2011 I helped to run the new construction condominium project known as Oxford of Blue Bell. From there, I became a co-leader of the The Jane Douglass & Jason Ostrowsky Team in 2013. In 2015, I left my team in Blue Bell to become Vice President / Sales Leader of BHHS Fox & Roach, Jenkintown Home Marketing Center. In 2018, I stepped down from management to get back into sales. In approximately late 2019, I was asked to host the BHHS Fox & Roach REALTORS®‘s Company Podcast “Everything Real Estate: Connecting Ideas with Action,” which I still host today. Also in 2019, I was asked to be on the exploratory committee to successfully merge what was then MCAR & Suburban West. After the merger took place, I became a director on the new board at Tri-County Suburban REALTORS® where I have served for almost two years. This past year in 2022, I was fortunate enough to also become a member of the PAR Board of Directors.

What role do you hope to play on the Board?

I love to contribute with my fellow directors in order to make the lives of our REALTOR® members a better and richer experience. I strive to uphold and uplift the ethical standards and professionalism of all our Tri-County members and continue to help convey our value as REALTORS® to the general public.

What Association benefits and/or offerings have provided you the most value in your business?

DocuSign, zipForms, educational opportunities (CE and beyond), Suburban REALTORS® Alliance, Forewarn, RPR and PAR Legal Hotline are what I use most in my business.

What industry trends do you feel will affect our association in the upcoming years?

  1. I think the biggest issue will be a cooling period over the next few years in the market, leading to a potential slight decrease in membership due to agents dropping out of the business during slower times.
  2. The DOJ’s impact on our industry and potential rethinking of the way we do business in the future as REALTORS®. We may need to focus on educating and advising our membership about those changes.
  3. The continued evolution of RE technology an disruption in our industry always leads to changes and will affect us moving forward in different ways.

What do you think should be the priority issues being addressed by the Association today?

In an ever-changing industry with more power and tech at a seller or buyers’ fingertips to automate their real estate experience, we need to focus on raising the bar with our membership to become the most knowledgeable, ethical, professional and VALUABLE agents they can be in order to keep us a vital party to any real estate transaction. We do this through educational opportunities, trainings and REALTOR® benefit tools.

Why are you interested in serving on the Board of Directors?

I’ve always had a passion for all things Real Estate and helping others. I take great pride in being a REALTOR® and representing our membership. I strive everyday to make myself better, not only as a REALTOR® and person, but as a leader setting an example for others in our industry as well. Serving as a director allows me to do that.
