IT’S ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS
When John Jacobi founded Windermere in 1972, he set out to change the real estate industry by putting relationships before sales quotas and emphasizing service to clients and the community. While real estate has changed substantially since then, Windermere’s core values — relationships, community, collaboration, education and professionalism — remain the pillars of their business model.
These values dovetail with Merna’s own. With a heart for service, Merna truly loves taking care of people — whether its guiding first-time home buyers through the process with patience and compassion or feeding a room full of people at a dinner party, Merna connected with Windermere’s commitment to their clients. In fact, this core value inspired her own tagline, “Putting Clients First.”
Windermere’s hands-on approach to training and continuing education gives Merna the technical edge to know the market inside and out, counsel her clients accordingly and provide the best service possible.
