lamothe todd

Even though he’s an accomplished multitasker capable of working across six states at once, Todd is surprisingly laid-back. And that’s a great trait to have when your job is guiding the marketing direction of Coldwell Banker NRT’s entire Northeast region. After more than 20 years in the real estate industry, Todd knows what it takes to effectively promote properties, recognize agents and position the company as a market leader. His ability to run rings around the competition isn’t limited to the workplace, though. He’ll zoom right past you on the weekends, too, as he’s also an avid runner and skier.

Our national creative director needs no introduction. His art work has been on display at museums and galleries around the world. He’s published four books. And he oversees the creative direction at The Studio. His name? Sloan. William Sloan. For someone who loves the creative world just as much as he loves people, Bill’s role in The Studio is a natural fit. You can catch him while he’s eagerly keeping agents ahead of the competition with eye-catching campaigns, or after-hours, read the musings on his namesake blog for a peek at his current creative inspiration.

morrow lisa

Say “kon’nichiwa” to Lisa and you’re likely to get more than a short response. That’s because she spent seven years in Japan, first as a student and then working as an art director for an English language magazine and later a graphics editor for a newspaper. These days, she works with The Studio’s other creative service managers to oversee a team of talented graphic designers. Given that she also worked in Thailand along the border of Myanmar, it should come as no surprise that she enjoys learning new things, trying new foods, traveling to new places and meeting new people. And, since she’s earned a black belt in karate, she’s certainly capable of taking care of herself in a sticky situation no matter where her travels take her!

heather tocatlian

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!
