About Starr M Franklin:
Native born to the Catawba Valley Area which covers 4 counties, Starr has been in Real Estate since the late 90's. As an Award Winning Agent on her on merits she also had the privilege of 'learning the business' from some of the best Realtors in the business!! Such as being a part of the "Donna Austin Team", which is an Award Winning, Top Producing Multi-Million Dollar Team in the Catawba Valley Area.
A true “people person,” Star's favorite part of being a REALTOR® is the opportunity to become acquainted with so many interesting people and help them realize their goals. She respects the fact that this isn’t like any other purchase – unless you’re an investor, your home is where you live and raise your family. Her sense of empathy for the emotion that goes into buying or selling a home could be the reason why so many of her former clients are her present friends. She also enjoys a great working relationship with her peers such as other RE Brokers, Mortgage Brokers and Attorneys.
In Starr's own words:
It's never the same transaction twice. So you really have to think "Okay, to get this done, what do I do to help this person?" OR, "How do I help my Client reach their new goal here?" It's really about the individual and tailoring my services to meet their needs. And then stepping back to see the results at Closing and see their smiling faces. To me that makes it all worthwhile, knowing I've made a positive impact in someone's life.
While not working:
Starr is a wife and mother of 3 wonderfully talented children and loves spending time with them. She also enjoys working out to stay fit. She serves on the Women's Board, teaches on occasion and sings in the choir at her local church
Additionally, she volunteers her time as the "CUFI NC State Director", (Christians United For Israel) the largest grassroots Pro-Israel organization with over 1 Million strong. As an Advocate for Israel, she personally visits her elected offcilas yearly in DC and asks them to support Israel as the Jewish State urging them to keep America as Israel's strongest Ally.
Summing it ALL Up:
Buying or Selling a home is probably one of the most important investment processes that an individual will make in their life. The top 3 primary characteristics a Realtor should posses are Trustworthiness, Market Knowledge and Likeability. Knowing her Clients have many Agents to choose from she works hard to personalize her talents for the individual by providing all 3 qualities. When you want a real estate professional who will dedicate herself to getting the results you want – call Starr. She'll help you find the right house – or the right buyer.
