Zilbert Realty Group
What was your first job in the realty industry?
I was an analyst for a private development and investment group in New England.
Who inspires you?
I am inspired by my father who founded two successful software companies, and my mother who has an excellent attitude about life. My broker also inspires me. He created the No. 1 condo site in Miami and has established himself as one of the counties top producers in a short period of time.
What is your favorite free-time activity?
Photography is a passion of mine.
What is the most difficult aspect of your job?
Every person I work with is very different so I’d have to say tailoring my approach to fit their needs would be the most difficult aspect of my job.
Where do you go to network and meet new clients?
I am always in the mood to talk real estate. I meet people everywhere from the supermarket to internet chat rooms.
What has been your greatest accomplishment?
Professionally, my greatest accomplishment has been the sale of an $8.5 million condo to a Grammy award winner. It wasn’t the sale price that I consider to be the accomplishment, but it was having the buyer’s confidence that I was the Realtor to work with.
Where would you like to be in five years, professionally?
I would like to be a member of the Master Brokers Forum and continue to work the ultra-luxury sector of the market.
What was the last good movie you saw or book you read?
The last good movie I saw was Superbad, which I thought was super funny. When I work hard most of the time, I value a good laugh.
Architecturally speaking, what is your favorite building in Miami?
Chad Oppenheim’s Ten Museum Park on 10th and Biscayne. When you look at the east face of the building, the design creates an illusion that the building is far shorter than its true 49 stories.
What is your personal motto?
Aim for the stars, not the horizon.
In 10 words or less, what is your advice for someone new to the industry?
Pick an area and relentlessly farm it!
