Margaret Rome (ACRE, ABR, CRS, e-PRO, GRI, LTG, PMN, RECS, RRC, CyberStar, CyberPro) is an award-winning dynamo who began her real estate career in 1990 in the Baltimore market, committed to becoming a top producer without any other staff bolstering her numbers. In order to accomplish that goal, she developed time and energy management techniques that helped her become a consistent multi-million dollar top producer with Coldwell Banker for over a decade. More recently Margaret has embraced the challenges of joining with an exciting new company TREC: The Real Estate Company of Maryland, and is a founding member and part-owner of TRAC – The Realtors Auction Company, “Home of the Accelerated Sale”.
A computer novice in 1990, Margaret has enthusiastically embraced the technology tools that help to serve her clients quickly, effectively, and personally. She keeps her always-connected, go-anywhere tablet computer close at hand. This one tool allows her to take listings and sign contracts electronically, handle the many details of a transaction, and fax or email the paperwork to clients and lenders instantly.
Her Treo Smart phone and voice mail keep her in touch with clients, and her GPS keeps her going in the right direction. Margaret uses a compact digital camera to capture high-quality images for her listings. Her website, www.HomeRome.com, welcomes both sellers and buyers with useful information in addition to quick listing access. Also a prolific blogger, her site www.HomeRomeBlog.com features up-to-the-minute real estate news and insights. In a phrase, Margaret knows how to put cyberspace to work!
Over the years, Margaret has won many Top Lister and Top Producer awards, but she is the proudest of two awards not based on listing, sales, or commissions. In January of 2006 she was named “Humanitarian of the Year” at the Allen F. Hainge CyberStars® convention, and also won the Carolyn Howd Award, named for an agent who helped her clients, other agents and friends even as she was hospitalized and dying of breast cancer; presented by Floyd Wickman’s Master Sales Academy.
With a catchy slogan, “Sell Your Home with Margaret Rome”, Margaret puts a premium on knowing her clients, her market, and the real estate business. Always eager to learn new skills and specialties, she has earned designations that nearly span the alphabet. More recently Margaret has added author to her list of talents, as she shares her vision of the perfect real estate career with new agents and veterans alike in her new book “Real Estate the Rome Way”.
