Leann Hammond first came to The Chilton Team as a client. So why did she decide on a career in real estate?
“It’s a people thing with me,” says Leann. Plus Leann was such a great and knowledgeable client that we knew she had talent!
Leann brings an incredibly strong customer service background to the team. With a resume that includes customer relations and managerial roles with companies such as TD Bank, and BMO, and contract management roles involving huge brands like Nickelodeon and the NBA, Leann has developed a very high degree of professionalism, and a deep understanding of the importance of clear and consistent communications. Leann lives just north of Barrie with her husband Ross and son Cole.
As anyone who has ever bought or sold a property knows, there is a lot of paper to keep track of, and each item is important. It takes a diligent organizational mind to make sure the documentation is where it needs to be through the various stages of the transaction, and that’s one of the big reasons why we are so glad to have Susan as part of the team.
With more than a decade of experience on the customer service side of real estate, Susan not only has expertise in the important organizational protocols, she also understands how stressful the process can be. Susan’s empathy for the ‘people’ part of the profession is key to our success. Susan takes it as a point of personal pride to deal honestly, fairly, and promptly with all client needs.
Her work with us is best described as “keeping order in potential chaos and maintaining a supportive and positive outlook”.
