jhomarie schirle

There is no visual marketing collateral too big or too small for Jhomarie to deliver, be it designing one form or an entire advertising campaign. “I make things look pretty,” Jhomarie sums up her work, “while also communicating a clear message.” Her instincts are good – she’s a perennial champ at Rock, Paper, Scissors, after all. And she possesses the education and experience to back it up, having graduated Cum Laude in Graphic Design from California State University, Northridge and worked in creative services for CBS.

cass travis

Travis is one of those guys who has everything figured out. He’s smart and strategic, but most importantly, he chose to live in a place that benefits from 300+ days of sunshine a year. As the field marketing manager for Orange, Riverside and San Diego counties, Travis works locally to implement local, regional and national campaigns that have a profound impact on agents and their businesses. Every day is different for Travis, which makes him happy. In fact, he thrives in a fast, ever-changing environment and relishes in the moments where he can stand toe-to-toe with a challenge. If you’re still not impressed, he’s also a two-time member of the Coldwell Banker Gen Blue Social Squad and can seriously throw down on the basketball court.

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.

david knife

David is wise in the ways of web development and accumulated his expertise solely through self-study and field experience. He was instrumental in building technology that helped a real estate company expand its number of agents tenfold before it was acquired by Realogy Brokerage Group LLC. Today, David continues to use his wealth of knowledge and inventiveness to arm Coldwell Banker agents with the latest technology tools. You might even go so far as to call David’s abilities a bit magical – his mother was an astrologer and channeler, and he’s always identified with wise old wizard characters in books. Oh, and nbd: He also raises tarantulas as a hobby!

Camy wears many hats in her role as field marketing director for Northern California, Hawaii and Utah: people manager, business consultant, problem solver, marketing strategist, fun committee board member, success coach, budget keeper, Global Luxury guru, confidante, therapist and more. It keeps her on her toes, but her 15 years of classical dance training (along with her MA, MS and MBA degrees) have more than prepared her for the challenge. This musical theater actor/singer and former beauty pageant winner also has a winning personality – she’s enthusiastic, compassionate and fun.

Driven by seeing the enjoyment of attendees at events she’s planned is motivation enough for Christina. As an event specialist responsible for planning various events in Florida, she credits her attention to detail and love of what she does for making events simply “fabulous.” When she’s not planning, she’s serving… on the tennis court. Her other passion.

tim layburn

“There is no substitute for paying attention” is Tim’s motto, because, he says, “It’s amazing how far you can get when you take notes.” For Tim, this motto (and, okay, the first IT certification he received in 1999) brought him to his current position, where he leads a support team of marketing product experts who service the company’s online presence. Not only can Tim juggle a busy work schedule, but he can juggle pretty much any object you give him, within a reasonable size and weight limit of course. When the weather’s nice, though, you’re most likely to find him out on the water: He recently fulfilled a childhood dream and bought his first boat!

We’re not sure, but we know it’s how this marketing specialist rolls. She gets straight to the point and digs in, helping agents successfully build their business. Outgoing, fun-loving and challenge-seeking, this fearless friend and mother with a heart of gold has a self-described obsession with cheese. Soft cheese, hard cheese, if it has cheese in the name, she’s eating it. She has her whole family saying, “cheese, please.” And that’s just a mere slice of Laura’s life – we can’t wait to hear the rest.

If “strategy” isn’t Melani’s middle name, it should be. She defines the why, when and what of the product and makes sure it is in alignment with the company strategy and roadmap. An enthusiastic collaborator, she works with cross-functional teams from a product’s conception through launch – and beyond. She loves to get down to the nitty-gritty to figure out what the problem is and then be able to work with an amazing team to solve it.

Gibu likes to think of the listing process as making a cake and he’s in charge of the toppings (the final touch being the client report). Along with his eye for details, a winning attitude and an infectious smile, Gibu likes to be helpful whenever possible. He has a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering and a master’s degree in business administration. And though he’s mastered these other disciplines, he can’t live without his favorite indulgence – ice cream. With all these desserts on his mind, it’s no wonder he’s got a reputation as a sweet guy.

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!
