When she was freshly out of college, Leda Quiaro decided to invest in her first house. What started as a journey to finding her starter home quickly developed into a lifelong passion. She decided to pursue real estate as a career and eventually earned a Master of Business Administration with a concentration in real estate to deepen her knowledge of the industry.
Before taking the plunge into real estate, Quiaro was in information technology, which helped her to leverage new technologies effectively into her business. She says she’s been using her IT experience during the pandemic to help drive and adapt her business and client experience to greater heights.
Quiaro says that being bilingual, technology-driven, proactive and learning-based has been instrumental to her success in real estate. Additionally, her adaptability and resilience this past year have helped her overcome obstacles brought by the pandemic. As a result, she’s increased her sales volume and gross commission income while still maintaining a high level of personalized care for her clients.
To her clients, Quiaro’s known for her patience, knowledge and responsiveness. She likes to build long-lasting relationships with her clients. “I take my time to understand my clients’ needs and help them find the right home for them,” she says. “I really get involved in the process and help them feel as comfortable as possible by helping them understand that real estate can be the biggest financial investment of their life.”
Quiaro and her team, including her husband and a transaction coordinator, take a client-centered approach to the industry. “I always put my client’s needs and interests first. I want to make the process as personalized as possible and provide exceptional communication,” she says. “For me, it’s not about selling real estate; it’s about giving my clients the best experience while still achieving their individual goals.”
Quiaro is a member of the Illinois Association of Realtors, Mainstreet Organization of Realtors, Women’s Council of Realtors, The National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals and the Delta Mu Delta International Honors Society.
