As someone who is proficient in marketing strategy, Joyce loves helping others find their brand direction and voice, which is the perfect fit for her job – much like solving a 1000-piece puzzle. When she’s out in the field meeting with new and experienced agents, she takes the time to process their input and provide direction for the next steps they can take to marketing success. She’s a self-declared “left-brain/right-brain marketer” who is equally comfortable navigating an Excel spreadsheet as she is overseeing the creative process to help agents build their book of business. In her spare time, she loves to try new recipes from one of her many cookbooks or volunteering as a career coach (we told you she loves to help others).

Amanda is a self-described “people person” – she loves teaching, coaching, helping and being with people from agents to coworkers, this is no solitary marketing specialist! But she’s also a techy, she knows her way around a computer and uses her skills to help agents execute their marketing plans to perfection. She assists them by introducing new tools and guides them through the ins and outs of using social media for business. A cook, traveler and glass-half-full gal, Amanda embraces life and shares her good vibes with all.

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.

Could it be Arlen’s tireless dedication to his craft, which he has been honing since launching his first app back in college? Or his empathetic nature that enables him to so aptly anticipate and dig into agents’ pain points and work towards meaningful solutions? Maybe it’s Arlen’s flexibility to work cross-functionally, to ask the right questions and launch the right products at the right time that make him so effective at his job. It’s probably NOT his champion pasta-eating ability (just don’t get between him and a plate of bucatini is all we’re saying). Whatever it is, we’re glad he’s got it!

Well-rounded is the best way to describe Mike.

No matter what Mike sets his mind to, he hits it out of the park every time!

Real estate has always been part of Chris’s life: his mom was a broker, and Chris grew up watching her place “Sold” riders on yard signs throughout Texas. It’s no surprise, then, that Chris is part of the marketing team promoting the very industry he grew up admiring. As national vice president of field marketing strategies, Chris leads a team that supports 45,000 independent agents – so they, too, can put “Sold” riders on yard signs throughout their regions. Like the Dodge Charger he enjoys racing on weekends, Chris is a powerful presence, but smoothly navigates through obstacles and challenges with more than 20 years of knowledge and experience. Chris lives in Long Valley, NJ with his four-legged companion, Beacon.

We’re counting the successes of this highly skilled field marketing specialist, who helps agents cultivate their marketing “voice” through print, social media and digital outlets. Irma offers valuable information to agents on how to grow their business by educating them on the power of the company’s exceptional tools. Her strong skills include the ability to adapt and be agile on the job, plus she’s trilingual, speaking English, Russian and Ukrainian. All this also translates into a winning approach outside the office. She enjoys camping, hiking, skiing and beach activities. There’s no slowing Irma down – she has conducted over 2,000 one-on-one appointments with agents and taught over 200 classes on marketing at branch offices. With these impressive stats, it’s no surprise this go-getter has come this far!

Agents have a lot of powerful marketing tools at their disposal. Good thing they have a powerful Listing Concierge coordinator behind them in Melissa. She brings a strong work ethic and stronger desire to provide great customer service in helping them find what works best for their listing – brochures, postcards, website, tv and YouTube. She’s a people pleaser and dedicated to doing the best job at all times. When she’s not juggling media options, she loves to play volleyball. We’re sure there’s plenty of power in her game, too!
