My name is Ellen Vasiliauskiene and I’m the Managing Broker at Amber Realty Inc. I have started my Real Estate career in 2002.
I remember my managing broker’s speech in one of the first sales meetings, saying that the interest rates have dropped so low (it was 6.5 then) that everybody would want to buy, so we’d better be ready to serve those eager buyers.
Well, the rates kept falling, and in a few months, they were below 4.
He was right, there were tons of people, who wanted to fulfill their American dream and become homeowners.
My first year in Real Estate I was working without any days off, without any vacations, super long hours, driving 50,000 miles, and successfully closing 23 transactions with the 1st time buyers. I had no funds available to advertise myself, so all of my clients were referred by my happy clients.
I fell in love in Real Estate business form my first steps but wanted to learn more, therefore, I decided to get my broker’s license, and signed up for GRI (Graduate Realtor Institute). The knowledge received through all those years in the Institute has helped me build a successful career in Real Estate.
I decided to open my own brokerage in 2005. The name “Amber Realty” was chosen due to my Lithuanian roots. Amber was called “a Baltic gold”, and it was found on the coast of Baltic sea. I remembered my childhood when visiting my aunt, who lived close to the sea. We used to walk miles by the seashore, looking for the sea treasures. Amber has always been a piece of warmth, pride, and value to me.
