Kerry Dike, Back-to-Back #1 Individual Sales Agent 2015-2016

As the famous Shrek once said, “Onions have layers.” Much like the almighty onion Kerry Dike also has layers, except she doesn’t stink and won’t make you cry (on purpose).

Kerry Dike has been a Sales Agent with Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® since September 2006. On her eleven year journey with Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® Kerry is often described as extremely hard-working, energetic and a creative problem-solver. Well known for her sense of humor, Kerry is able to meet any challenge with optimism and determination. Evidence of her success has been the achievement of #1 Sales Agent in the company for 2015 and 2016. Kerry’s multi-million dollar production ranks heftily at approximately 12 million dollars.

Outside of being a full-time REALTOR® Kerry is involved in a Planning and Zoning Committee for the City of Shavano Park. The Planning and Zoning Commission consists of nine members appointed by City Council, one of which is Kerry. They recommend boundaries of zoning districts, appropriate regulations, as well as preparation for public hearings and reports to City Council.

When asked about her goals Kerry says, “It’s about everyday, working to be a better REALTOR® than I was the day before. I want to show my children that life is about work ethic and how hard you’re willing to work to get what you want. For me, D’Ann remains the Gold Standard in every way. Period. I’m proud to be a part of that legacy.”

The most positive impact on Kerry’s success has been her family. They have taught her that in the right shoes, you can go anywhere — except if you’re in heels… and it’s muddy or if you’re on one of those gravel paths. Regardless, Kerry says she makes family choices and support non-negotiable in business.

Going forward her Kerry’s goal for 2017 is to be the best real estate consultant she can be. She does offer some advice for those looking to break into the real estate industry, “Luck doesn’t exist in real estate. When you are prepared for success, you will then recognize opportunities as they happen.”

… also, “Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away, and you have their shoes.”

Hard Work, Family and Gettin’ It Done

July 2016 — It is something we all face, the work/life balancing act. There is no single path that works for everyone, we all just tightrope walk that line which makes the most sense for our situation. In working to achieve a safe place for our families, we all make sacrifices.

Similarly we continually face challenges in the form of choice. Maybe it’s easier just to skip that open house, or perhaps you’re too busy, so having the lockbox isn’t a big deal – you can always do it later right? Come to think of it there’s so many emails, why not just mark them read and get back to it. You can always read them later. Excuses only satisfy the person telling them. Being a REALTOR® is not easy, but sure can sound lovely – make you own hours, be your own boss and business owner. The fact is, there are a tower full of moving parts and becoming derailed, discouraged is easy without focus.

Aside from closings, inspectors, paperwork and other facets of the real estate life; you also hope to fit family and loved one in the schedule too. Many of us understand this all too well. Some of us excel greatly at it, but a rare few exemplify what it means to really “get it all done”.

13730844_10154217533515726_8951716884385841463_oWe wanted to take the time to spotlight a sales agent who ranked 3rd as the Top Closing Agent (just behind the the top 2 sales teams) at Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® as of June 2016. Additionally she ranked #1 individually among 350 of her peers. Less than a week later, she gave birth to a beautiful baby boy named Wiley. Lindsey Ashcroft, mother, wife and REALTOR®, truly deserves a round of applause.

On Friday July 22nd, Lindsey and her husband Joe celebrated their new baby (the youngest of 4 children). On Monday she took care of a closing – one of four closings set for this month. When we called to ask if we could run this story (same day), she answered her phone on the second ring. That’s what we call getting it all done! Color us impressed.

Thank you Lindsey Ashcroft for being such a wonderful inspiration to the CBHarper Family. Cheers to you, Joe, and your four beautiful children during this exciting time!
