For Boston’s Regina Winslow, vice president of sales at William Raveis Real Estate, humble beginnings early in her career have given her an undeniable edge in the modern, digital age.
“When I first moved here from California, I’d print out MapQuest directions and drive around neighborhoods,” she recalls. While it may have meant occasionally driving in circles, she says the practice helped her memorize and appreciate each unique part of Boston. Just as she learned her market by heart, she feels strongly about serving different kinds of customers.
“I don’t have one customer type,” Winslow declares. “I’ve sold houses for $180,000 and $7 million. All of my clients are of equal importance to me.” This is all part of a holistic approach she takes in serving and caring for clients. “My real estate relationships are about more than just finding a house,” she says. “I help them find where their kids will go to nursery school, what paint colors would look good in their new space, where to hire a quality countertop installer, and much more.” This, she says, develops a trust level that extends well beyond real estate.
Winslow didn’t slow down during the pandemic. She did 50% of last year’s transactions off-market and also took the step of becoming licensed in Vermont. She’ll now expand her footprint, bringing her candid and transparent style of communication to even more new clients. “I’m very clear with my clients about if I feel a house is the right fit for them,” she remarks, “and I think they appreciate my candor.”
Wherever she goes, Winslow plans to continue to give her own confidence generously to her clients – the way she has since first making her mark in Boston real estate 17 years ago.
