Vera Cohen came to the United States without knowing the language, without a support system but with an unshakeable work ethic that has now gained her the ranking amongst the Top 1% of Realtors in The Nation. Years ago, she worked multiple jobs to save up for the down payment of her first home. That home purchase would spark her passion for Real Estate and a career that has won impressive recognition. That recognition includes:
* Top 40 Business Leaders Under 40
* Top 1% of Realtors in the Nation
* Best of Zillow
* Best of Trulia
She started her Real Estate Brokerage in East Greenbush less than 3 years ago. That same brokerage now has a team of 23 powerhouse agents. The Brokerage ranked within the Top 19 Largest Brokerages of the Capital Region in 2019 out of 536 and is currently ranked within the Top 11 in 2020. Vera’s expertise, passion and devotion to each sale is extremely admirable and one that keeps her agents constantly striving to achieve their best. Her nurturing personality has allowed the agents in her office to learn and grow within their individual Real Estate careers. Her commitment to each client has allowed her to create and foster real, long lasting connections with local homeowners. Capital Region residents can rest easy when selling or buying a home with Vera because she has built such trust within the area. All before her 37th birthday, Vera has moved to a new country, started a Real Estate career, opened her own Brokerage, got married, raised a beautiful daughter and climbed the ranks of Real Estate.
What's next?! Vera plans on adding to her career growth by opening a second location.
A driving force in the real estate industry, Anthony's extraordinary vision has positioned The Gucciardo Real Estate Group as the industry leader, growing to more than $95 million in closed sales (325+ Units) in 2018 and expanding its reach to the most prestigious real estate markets in the Capital Region. With his seasoned expertise and sharp analytical mind, he anticipates new trends and creates strategic plans for the future. Anthony joined the Real estate industry at age 21 and in two years became the top agent in the area helping to cement the region's growth. From this success he continued to rise through the years and was selected as the Business Review's 40 under 40. He spearheaded the negotiations that resulted in several million dollar sales as well as over 2300 closed single family residential sales since starting in 2002. His average sale price is between $225,000 to $450,000. He has participated in multiple sales greater than $1 million dollars in Sage Estate, Shaker Bay, and East Ridge. "I am a middle class america type realtor though, said Gucciardo". I love listing Raised ranch and every day kind of homes more so than the higher end homes." Anthony is a force in the residential real estate community and continues to provide the highest level of client service possible while educating future Realtors with similar aspirations. Many agents have mimicked his marketing, but none have reached his level of success.
As the preeminent real estate professional and award-winning Realtor in his community, Anthony is dedicated to providing the finest service available while breaking new ground. Because the real estate industry is becoming more sophisticated and challenging every day, you need a professional that understands the industry and is positioned to stay ahead of the game. Anthony goes the extra mile to help you achieve your goals. He's not part of a team like many agents who shuffle off daily duties. Anthony is the Broker / Owner who manages individual agents who are their own personal agents. He still lists and sells houses daily which makes him totally different than traditional managers. Anthony wants buyers and sellers to know that if you hire him you will deal with him. He constantly researches the market and property values so your home is priced effectively from day one. He also makes sure the public knows your home is for sale by using both innovative and traditional advertising /marketing techniques to attract potential buyers.
There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.
That said, in my experience as a Capital Region real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.
This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.
As a business professional Anthony maintains a positive professional image in the community and will never show up to your house smelling like cigarette smoke as he is a non-smoker and non-drinker.
