From the team

“In 3 short weeks it already feels like Robert and Anne-Marie have been part of the family for years!  Their approach to onboarding and learning the business is exactly what the team needs in their sales leaders. What I am encouraged by most is their passion to coach and develop others, their love for winning and chasing big goals, and their willingness to do whatever it takes to serve and dominate in the Florida market. They’re also wicked smart and are picking up on everything at lightning speed. We invited Robert and Anne-Marie to join us on this expansion journey because we saw experienced, positive, driven, and well-rounded sales leaders in both of them!  The Florida efforts are sure to be a huge success largely due to the contributions each of them have already started to make!” – Cindy Krampetz, Vice President of Sales

After moving back to Florida, I came across this position as Director of Sales with Mark Spain Real Estate. I was intrigued because this did not sound like the typical real estate brokerage. Everything I found out about the company really resonated with my values. I knew that it was definitely something I wanted to pursue. After a lengthy interview process, which also stood out to me because it shows how selective and protective of the culture the company is, I was thrilled to find out that I was chosen to be a part of this team! I look forward to becoming a part of this culture and doing my part to strengthen it. Every person that I have met or interacted with so far has been more than welcoming to me. I am so impressed by the level of collaboration and culture within this company! I am thankful for the opportunity to be a part of this Florida launch and expand the Mark Spain Real Estate footprint here in Florida.” – Robert Gonzalez, Director of Sales, Florida
