I came to Real Estate in 2003 with a 10yr background in financing as an Ass't Manager with Beneficial Finance. I decided I no longer wanted a 9 to 5pm and every other weekend job. I had just became a Grandma and wanted a career that would be family friendly. I started with Century 21 Balesteri, and was grateful for the chance to learn. Within 2years I had enough transactions to go back to school for my Brokers license.
In 2005, I opened my own Brokerage Barone Realty Plus. I was now working about 80 hrs a week-so much for the family friendly career, but what I did realized was how much I loved what I was doing. Each day was a new adventure and I loved it. In 2007 I was working a transaction with Diane Safire-she asked me to talk to Joni Stovroff-well end of story I found a new home and couldn't be happier. Jacque and Joni are just the best and they surround themself with the best--we have a wonderful office. It is just a pleasure to go there everyday.
