Crystal Narramore Featured Panelist at WomanUP!

WomanUp! - Main

March 29th, 2018

 

“The REvive! Conference was a powerhouse event, and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to speak on the WomanUP! panel. The panel openly shared their stories of leadership, triumph, failure, and motivation,” said Crystal Narramore, Podley Properties President.


We are proud to have had our very own President, Crystal Narramore, contribute to the dialogue as a featured panelist at the 2018 Revive! Conference & Expo. Taking place at the Victoria Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga, this yearly conference featured talks and panel discussions with the leading voices in real estate.
C.A.R.’s Women’s Initiative is designed to bridge the gender gap in the leadership of real estate firms. They hope to reach that goal by empowering mentors and leaders to communicate, collaborate and advocate for one another.


It’s an honor to have Crystal serve as our President and representative in the real estate community!

Podley Properties Welcomes Jaclyn Lorenzo

Jaclyn Lorenzo - Headshot

 

Born and raised in the Philippines, Jaclyn moved to California before turning 21. She worked as an Assistant to a Real Estate Broker for 5 years in Northern California. She moved to Southern California to pursue a Master’s Degree in Christian Counseling. Jaclyn worked in the school’s Business Office helping students with their financial accounts.

Jaclyn’s aim as she pursued Counseling was to develop her skills in working with people, before returning to Real Estate. Upon finishing her Counseling degree, she earned her License in Real Estate. She prayed to join a company that cares for their clients and each other, adheres to moral and ethical principles of honesty and fair dealing, and passionately strives to give the best at all times. Podley Properties met each criteria. She walked into that open door excited to start her career as a Realtor.

Jaclyn loves meeting and building friendships with people. Her previous work as a Real Estate Assistant combined with her counseling experience, attention to detail, and trustworthy character make her a great Realtor to work with. She is dedicated to providing you the support needed as you buy or sell properties, while making it a fun experience for you!

Podley Properties Joins Fellow LeadingRE Companies in Las Vegas

LeadingRE® Annual Conference - Main

2018 LeadingRE® Annual Conference

.

January 31st-February 2nd, 2018

.

Rob Weise, Director of Relocation Services, and Meredith McKenzie, Podley Realtor®, joined Realtors from across the globe at this year’s LeadingRE® Annual Conference. Along with valuable sessions providing updated information for 2018, the conference was a fabulous venue for the relocation directors to connect in person.

.

LeadingRE® Annual Conference - Cocktails

Northern and Southern California Relocation Directors and Staff got together for a Cocktail Hour

LeadingRE® Annual Conference - Arizona

Rob Weise with Michelle O’Connell of Arizona Best Real Estate headquartered in Scottsdale

.

It was also a great venue for agents to network and attend sessions specifically tailored to sales associates. Meredith attended many of those sessions, taking away the following valuable information:

 

  • As members, Podley Properties agents have access to member organizations in all 50 states and in 70 countries. This makes it the largest luxury relocation referral organization in the world.
    .
  • 56% of all referrals actually close, making LeadingRE the most productive referral network of all. When you send out a qualified referral through the LeadingRE network, you have a 50/50 chance of receiving a referral check. That’s better odds than Las Vegas!
    .
  • LeadingRE operates one of the largest online real estate training “classrooms” in the business world. They are ranked in the Top 3 of Best Online Training Sites in America by Training Magazine.

Podley Properties Welcomes Marianna Valdivia

Marianna Valdivia

Having grown up in Glendora and graduating from Glendora High School, Marianna Valdivia is very familiar with Glendora and the surrounding areas. She has always had an interest in real estate, and for the last 10 years she has worked in escrow. This experience in escrow helps Marianna to have a deeper understanding of the buying and selling process than most agents.

She loves to help people, and takes great pride and pleasure in helping clients in selling their current home or finding and buying their dream home. Marianna knows how stressful the home buying process can be. She makes the extra effort to let her clients know that they can trust her, and to provide the easiest experience as possible every step of the way.

Marianna is married with three children; two boys, five and three, and a stepdaughter who is sixteen.

Podley Properties Welcomes Priscilla Nelson

Priscilla Nelson - Headshot

Priscilla Nelson grew up in Chino, California, where her father was a pastor at a local church serving the quaint community. After graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychobiology from U.C. Riverside, she worked in cancer research at world-renowned City of Hope Medical Center in Duarte. She developed a love for real estate while living in beautiful Pasadena, California. The architectural significance of the homes and neighborhoods fueled her passion, and in 2011 she obtained her real estate license.

 

As a lifelong resident of the Inland Empire/San Gabriel Valley, Priscilla will use her insider knowledge to work to find a special property in your neighborhood of choice and utilize the latest marketing tools to expose your property to the widest possible range of qualified buyers.

 

Priscilla’s choice to partner with Podley Properties was an easy one to make. As a locally-based company, Podley Properties has a collaborative team that is knowledgeable enough to bring a supportive, personal experience to every transaction and established enough to be known for having an impeccable reputation and many years of experience in the communities it serves. Every transaction has the support of the company’s collective resources and expertise.

 

In her free time, Priscilla loves being with friends and family. She enjoys exploring new restaurants, seeing her favorite music artists perform, and participating in regional 5k/10K events.
