A Teen Living & Working In The Real Estate Industry – by Sydney Marino

Senior year is the time to relax and develop senioritis, right? Wrong. Not for me anyway. Every day when I leave the teenage world of socializing, calculus, and schoolwork, I enter the real world here at the Energized Realty Group.

When I first started working here, I wasn’t really sure what it was going to be like. There were no tests or homework; there wasn’t a next class. I didn’t know everything. I felt like school didn’t fully prepare me for what the real world was like or even for a real job for that matter. I was completely lost. Luckily for me, Judy and Jenna took me under their wings. They’ve taught me so much, both in the real estate world and the real world. In these last four months I’ve learned so much and I feel as if everyone here has made me part of the team.

When I went back to school in September for the beginning of my senior year, I had a busy schedule ahead of me. I was going to school in my work clothes, going to work after school, handling various different transactions at a time, working with co-workers, talking to clients, and then at the end of the day coming home to do my homework and doing it all over again the next day. I absolutely loved it. All my friends thought that I was so professional and so lucky to be working for such a well-known real estate company. My teachers see that I have become a mature young lady. Judy and Jenna have been very helpful to me when it came time to go back to school. If I ever have to come in late or miss a day of work due to a school related situation, they are more than happy to accommodate me. I feel like I am so fortunate that at even at the young age of 16, Judy hired me to work for the Energized Realty Group.

The Energized Realty Group feels like a part of me I never want to leave behind. This experience has been life changing. Although some days may be hectic for me, I am able to work through it all. Working at the Energized Realty Group has taught me how to manage stress, organize my life, feel more confident, and work in the real world as an adult. Hey, maybe even one day you’ll see my name on a business card; Sydney Marino Real Estate Agent with the Energized Realty Group.

Now that Summer is over…

Now that the summer is over, with Fall and Winter around the corner, some of you may be thinking about the possibility of storm season, and maybe even next season’s snow. If you need any information at all, from whether to consider trimming or even removing a tree  to prevent potential damage to your property or for resale purposes, or suggestions on perhaps re-planting a tree that may have perished in Irene or Sandy, give me a call. We have a lot of experiences along with real life stories to share with you on the pros and cons of trees on and around your property. I love our neighborhoods around Flushing, Bayside, Whitestone and the surrounding areas. Our local landscape and the values in the area are my main focus, in every sense of the words! So email me your confidential questions, at judy@ energizedrealtygroup.com, or call me at 718-353-6000.  I would always welcome your call!
