Martha Krakow - GRI
Sales Manager, Associate Broker
The success of a manager and an office is dependent on the success of each sales associate. As a non-competing, experienced manager, it is my goal to develope the talents of every associate through coaching, training, mentoring and personalized marketing support. I strive to provide a professional environment in which to thrive.
As a result of my 25+ years of management experience, I am in a unique position to and have the ability to help new agents to become productive quickly. I am able to show experienced agents how to make more money in less time to reach a new level of production with our tools, in-house coaching and training, technology and other support services.
Education and Training
Bachelor of Arts degree from New York University. I began my real estate career in 1979 first as an agent, then as a broker/owner of an independent real estate firm and finally as a Coldwell Banker assistant manager and manager since 1989. I am proud of my record in developing new talent and enhancing the careers of experienced agents in the Croton and Briarcliff/Pleasantville offices.
Awards and Designations
As a Coldwell Banker manager, I have been recognized as being in the top 20% among more than 1000 NRT offices nationwide. National Realty Trust is the largest residential real estate company in the country. In addition, I have been among the top managers in the Westchester/Connecticut company during that same period.
“Martha has been instrumental in my success for the past six years that I have been in the real estate business. She is always willing to guide me through the ups and downs of our day to day business. I am very fortunate to have her as my manager, mentor and friend. Her unending guidance and coaching has been way beyond her daily responsibilities. She also has been very generous with her time in helping Swim Across America, a charity that raises money for cancer for which I am the Westchester Chairperson. She is always a positive force in my business. She keeps me focused in these tumultuous economic times. She constantly helps to bring me back to basics. Having been in a different industry for most of my career, I am very fortunate to have Martha as my manager.” - - Anthony Sibio, Coldwell Banker Residential Sales Associate, Briarcliff, NY
