Connie’s Experience & Qualifications – Resume
When Was the Last Time You Had a “Wow” Experience?
Whether it’s a fun challenge or a serious hurdle, Connie takes charge and goes beyond expectations no matter what. Connie attributes her “any lengths” attitude to a work ethic modeled by her parents. Connie grew up on a large dairy farm and was expected to milk cows before dawn and bale hay after school. The farm was a family business and she learned about teamwork by pitching in with the family garden, helping her mom can vegetables and driving the tractor while baling hay. It was a no-excuses world and Connie found out how great it felt inside when she brought her own brand of “wow” to every chore that she did.
Connie’s desire to impress others by exceeding expectations brought her great success as an adult. She became a commercial real estate consultant for Arthur Andersen, traveling from coast to coast assessing everything from railroad properties to large-scale residential, retail, and office developments. During that time she won praise from management for developing business solutions that saved money and increased efficiency for both the clients and the company.

In addition to helping her client’s, Connie is passionate about positively impacting the lives of others – including other real estate agents and brokers. Considering her professional track record and giving spirit, Connie became the Team Leader and Managing Broker of a large Keller Williams Realty office in Atlanta.
