Tammy Mazzocco has been involved in Cleveland, Ohio real estate since the mid-nineties when she was an executive assistant in Cleveland Ohio. She soon was involved as a property manager for several properties, but then got her real estate license and began selling. It was there that she found her true calling.
She gives a lot of credit to several individuals who helped her along the way, but it is obvious that her dedication and work ethic has had a lot to do with her success as well. Admittedly a bit shy by nature, Mazzocco found that if she engages a prospective buyer in conversation about themselves, the ice is broken and a real friendship is launched between the prospective buyer and herself.
The Cleveland real estate market in 2016 was a good one with a strong job market that propelled and motivated people to enter the market and buy their homes. A low financing cost with very good interest rates was a driving force as well. When you have such a good combination of factors as those, the environment for people to invest in real estate is strong.
However, by election time around November signs of change appeared on the horizon. A sudden shortage of homes on the market along with interest rates that were hovering around the 4% level started to dampen the strong trend of growth and the market slowed down a bit. There were still plenty of buyers, but there were a whole lot fewer homes for them to purchase.
Mazzocco has been through several down real estate periods and this in not one of them yet. Even so, she states that there is no point in worrying about something you can’t control. Sometimes you just have to work a little harder and be a little more effective. Focus and organization are the keys to her success, and so are the people that are her customers, as she puts them first and they respond in kind.
