St. Petersburg, FL, August 20, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Keller Williams Realty St. Pete’s Luxury Homes Realtor and mother of two, Bailey Makris, has won Pinellas Realtor Organization’s (PRO) prestigious award, Rookie of the Year.
PRO determines the Rookie of the Year by the newest member to the real estate industry with the highest total sales volume. Makris has closed an impressive sales volume of over $8 million in her first year.
The well-connected St. Petersburg native got her start in software sales and has always maintained a passion for real estate. Makris attributes her great success to being a part of the community and sells the majority of her listings before they hit the market.
“I take a boutique approach to real estate,” said Makris, Certified Luxury Homes Marketing Specialist with Keller Williams Realty St. Pete. “Selling and purchasing a home is a challenging process for many different reasons and when a client is working with me, I believe they should get my full attention.”
Makris decided to launch her luxury real estate career with Keller Williams Realty St. Pete after interviewing with many different brokerages and speaking with a friend that worked in the Keller Williams Realty South Tampa office prior to getting her license. After meeting and touring the Keller Williams Realty St. Pete office with Elijah Ramsey, Realtor with Keller Williams Realty St. Pete, Makris fell in love with the people and the office’s culture. Since launching her career she has implemented successful business models from Gary Keller’s Millionaire Real Estate Agent.
