Owner Spotlight: John Moniz
Hi, my name is John Moniz. I am proud to be a real estate agent in Cambridge, Ontario. I’m excited about my blog. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better. Certainly, I look forward to spending this time with you.
I was born and grew up in the Azores, Portugal. I moved to Canada in 1994. I’ve been a resident of Cambridge ever since then. I’m fluent in Portuguese and English.
I’ve been a real estate agent since 2001. The part of my work which I find the most enjoyable is making my clients happy. Whether it’s helping them sell their existing home, or buying their dream property. Nothing thrills me more than helping someone into their very first home. That’s special. That’s why I’m in business.
My responsibilities include full service for sellers and buyers. I perform home evaluations, schedule and conduct showings, prepare offers and facilitate negotiations buyers and sellers.
On a typical day, in the morning I follow up with calls from the night before. Then I prepare any offers and book showings for the afternoon or evening. I spend two hours prospecting for new business and then accompany my buyer clients to house showings. Then I will prepare any offers in that same day. I may also meet with prospective home owners to provide them with a home evaluation. Late in the evening I coordinate any marketing for new and existing listings I have. I regularly put in 10 hour days.
The three top skills I rely on to perform my job are: negotiating, marketing and inter-personal skills. The most important decisions I face are budget related. I attribute my success to hard work and dedication.
I have many companies which I admire and have learned valuable lessons from their experiences. Their examples have influenced my leadership style.
Away from work I love having time to relax and be with my kids. My most life satisfying moments were the birth of my kids. I am a marathon runner. Training requires dedication and a significant amount of time and effort. I also love soccer.
I find time to volunteer in the community.
My personal values are to be honest and respect everyone. Period.
I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things which matter to me and how they influence the way I do business.
If you, or someone you know could benefit from my expertise in real estate, whether it’s selling or buying, I invite you to get in touch.
