Penny handles our budgets and forecasts, and helps support our awesome field marketing managers across the country, and she does it all from our New Jersey office. This natural problem-solver will handle any impossible project that crosses her desk like she’s in the Rubik’s Cube world series.

Jessica Decina

If you’re looking for a Design Concierge hero with a keyboard mightier than a sword, we’d point you in Jessica’s direction! Nothing gets past her sharp attention to detail as she leads the Design Concierge copywriting team, who produce marketing materials that make agents feel like superstars. And crafting excellent pieces can be easy when you’re so full of personality yourself – Jessica is a self-proclaimed goofball and lover of pointless trivia. So, tune in for her pop culture theories, baking tips and a story about the time she interviewed Keira Knightley. When it comes to Jessica, there’s a lot to love!

Kara Carpenter Photo

Kara is totally invested in being a great client advocate by applying determination, inspiration and organization to her list of everyday goals along with her daily mantra: “Throw kindness around like it’s confetti!” She prides herself on creating marketing materials that clients are proud of and will want to show off to help get their listings sold. A cum laude graduate of Sonoma State University, she’s also been to Disney U and worked her magic at the iconic Walt Disney World® in Florida. She loves a day of wine tasting in Napa and any Siberian husky she meets (but most of all her own). Friends that know her well would say she’s warm-hearted, sensible and hardworking – we think she’s all that and more.

lewis.connie

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.

When Michelle puts her visual storytelling skills on full display, there’s no question that she’s in her element as an artistic director for the Design Concierge team. Michelle’s talents often translate into stunning designs, but she’s also proud of her role as a “solver of artistic problems.” And her vibrant, colorful spirit goes beyond the nine-to-five: At home, Michelle enjoys a good, infectious laugh, painting with watercolors and picking out the next set of cheesy t-shirts she’ll wear with her husband and beautiful baby boy.

Nick describes himself as adventurous. Traveling far and wide to capture photos that would one day appear in local exhibitions and teaching computer and office skills to residents of a small community in Tanzania, attests to that. What’s his latest adventure? Working with The Strategy Studio and Coldwell Banker Global Luxury® teams to bring a superior experience to agents to help them achieve their goals. Applying his worldly knowledge to this — piece of cake.

moraima randazzo

As a creative services manager, Moraima leads a team of graphic designers to provide eye catching designs to help The Studio’s clients stand out from the crowd. And speaking of standing out, Moraima (Latin for “she who is as beautiful as the blueberry tree”) may seem like a unique name, but it’s quite popular in her family – her mother and sister are also named Moraima! Our Moraima has been with the company nearly a decade so far, first in Los Angeles and now in Atlanta. What also makes her good at her job is the passion she has for collaborating and problem-solving with a variety of staff from all regions of the company. As a former pole vaulter, she’s able to find ways to jump over any obstacle, making her exactly the sort of person you want on your team.

Leading the best events team in the real estate industry, Samantha oversees the execution of all client events, whether it’s an intimate affair for 20 people or 600-person gala celebration. Understandably, Samantha has a keen eye for detail, is outgoing and sometimes gives the matriarchal authoritative vibe. We’ll tell you she’s borderline embarrassed about her affinity for reality tv but proud to be sharing a family tradition with her daughter: Summers with her extended family on the Jersey Shore.

victorio suarez hevia

When agents brand their marketing materials with sleek logos and compelling designs, it’s often the work of Victorio. Victorio helps Coldwell Banker agents enhance their visual identity. He’s also a kind-hearted person, a great learner, and doesn’t take himself too seriously. His bisabuelo said, “There’s at least one thing you can learn from anyone: the right way, or the wrong way.” When it comes to his work, we think Victorio knows what’s right from his own words: “Design speaks, but to be heard it needs to be specific, unique and authentic.”

Alan describes himself as subtle, but his work as a product web specialist is anything but – he’s the heart, hustle and muscle that powers the many digital tools and resources The Studio develops for agents and their businesses. He’s versatile, quick and can take on any task at a moment’s notice. And even more impressive, he can do it with a smooth temperament and amazing world-class humbleness. If he wasn’t busy making the online world a better place and busting out bass guitar solos, he could probably run for mayor.
