Going above and beyond, and putting quality above quantity are what sets Heather apart. We’re not just saying that – we’ve got the receipts: she won the “Golden Pickle” award for going the extra mile when she was with the Sacramento/Tahoe region and has earned two top performance awards since June for providing stellar customer service on the Listing Concierge platform. Heather says her previous job working in a branch office with agents is what makes her so attuned to their needs and able to deliver exceptional service. When not at work, she’s bound to be with her dogs or welcoming friends and family to her home for a tasty meal. And if she hits the next big lottery jackpot, you’re likely to see a dog shelter with Heather’s name on it!

VIP Listing Concierge Coordinator
Cole Chelsea

Chelsea is a powerhouse of creative communication. A self-proclaimed multi-tasking machine, she supports agents with marketing solutions for their brand. She considers herself a storyteller, combining marketing strategy skills with her creativity as a graphic artist for a winning approach. Whether it’s branding, brochure design or conceptual art, Chelsea delivers materials that seamlessly and effectively communicate the conceptual vision. Crafty, quirky, direct and kind, Chelsea started out as a go-getter: water- and snow-skiing since she was four, becoming homecoming queen and school mascot in high school, then studying visual design and merchandising and fine art photography. Clearly, Chelsea is still on the move with no end in sight.

Kari Swartz

With an excellent eye for design and a willingness to jump in whenever needed, we consider Kari an art director extraordinaire. Responsible for developing and executing advertising design for everything from magazine covers to regional ads, Kari juggles it all with a happy-go-lucky demeanor and a matter-of-fact attitude. Here’s a little-known fact – Kari is a tad quirky as she has a penchant for pineapples and grows them at her Florida home. Now we can all say we know a pineapple farmer – sweet!

Liz understands perfectly well that real estate is a seven-day a week job, which is why she makes herself available to agents, well, seven days a week. Starting off in real estate in her early 20s by assisting her mother, Liz works with the executive leadership team on regional projects and strategic marketing plans for agents across the Mid-Atlantic region. Her tireless work ethic has led to ways to improve agent recruitment and retention by producing a video testimonial campaign, updating the company’s presence at trade shows, and creating awareness of company tools through events like NRT Referral Rewards. Liz also serves as the local liaison for the Global Luxury program, producing Elite Sales events, and overseeing print advertising. In her spare time — wait, there is no spare time.

Connie is just as clever as she is fun. A cheerleader motivating the agents in Florida’s panhandle, Connie provides support to rising stars by coaching them on how to use Coldwell Banker NRT’s marketing tools to fuel their production and domination of the market. Connie once dreamed of a career scouting locations for film projects, which she’s translated into scouting the best and brightest agents. She might be a well-educated, award-winning marketing pro, but when she is not cheering on the agents, she likes to wind down with a simpler life in the country tending to her goats and braking for squirrels.

david anchondo

Ever wonder who comes up with the visual concept for The Studio’s marketing materials? Our Art Director David in Beverly Hills, for one. Making agents shine is his job, and he finds great pleasure in doing so. Every printed document, whether an event flyer, poster, ad, editorial spread, email campaign or social media content, needs to convey a message with a specific “look and feel” that makes the client stand out. Given his attention to detail and visual storytelling, it should come as no surprise that he also has an outside interest in photography and salsa dancing. As he notes, “Be sure to put your feet in the right place, then stand firm,” which applies to life and dancing!

You name it, Jennifer has seen it in her 25 years of communications, marketing, public relations and social media experience. As national director of communications, Jennifer leads the way in internal communications, video production and copywriting for The Studio. Outgoing, loyal and hard-working by nature, she consistently pushes her team to make their work better and more impactful. While she has worked with all sorts of celebs, from Donald Trump (back when he was just a reality star) to Jane Seymour and Liza Minelli, Jennifer now focuses on showcasing The Studio’s clients in neon lights. This Kentuckian bleeds blue for University of Kentucky basketball and still lets “y’all” slip more than she’d like in her now home state of Florida.

We’ve never been, but with his attention to detail, it’s now on the list.

Hold on to your well-rounded checklist, here comes Chelsea. A whirlwind of wonder, Chelsea (known as Sparkles to her crew) is a fun-loving Listing Concierge manager who’s been delighting agents and coworkers for 15 years. Fun, funny, thoughtful and quick-witted, Chelsea recently fulfilled one of her lifelong dreams – to become a mother. Congrats and welcome, baby CeCe! But wait, that’s not all. She’s a painter, crafter, fixer-upper, skier, licensed real estate agent and she speaks Italian (but according to her, only after some red wine and only in Italy – when in Rome, Chelsea). Wherever you are, whatever you’re up to, we think you’re magnifica!

carma stahnke

Friends describe her as funny, friendly and hardworking, and here at The Studio we’d describe Carma as a treat! After hitting the books in Austria and Germany, “Dr. Stahnke” graduated with her Ph.D. in English and went on to teach at the Milwaukee School of Engineering. Carma taught English and German for 14 years before dabbling in freelance copywriting. Ultimately, we’re thrilled that Carma put down her roots at The Studio, where she uses her creative talent and keen eye as part of the Design Concierge team. If you want a lesson in motivation from Carma herself, take heed to her favorite quote: “If you’re going through hell, keep going.”

Anyone whose motto is “Life is too short to drink bad wine” is someone we want to hang out with. Andrea is the field marketing manager for the Tampa Bay region, where she works closely with agents to educate them on using company tools to manage and grow their business. She loves what she does because she’s a ‘people-person’ and enjoys relationship building. If it were up to her 10-year-old self though, she’d transform into Olivia Newton John – and really, who wouldn’t for a chance to dance with John Travolta?!
