Anna is a seasoned real estate professional with more than a decade of valid experience, especially in villas, houses of character and high-end apartments.
Like many other agents, she thrives on sharing her clients’ excitement and enthusiasm when they find their dream home; “Basically this is what makes me so passionate about doing this job every day”, she claims proudly. At the same time, she appreciates that sometimes people cannot imagine all the hard work that agents do behind the scenes as part of their job. The massive amount of research, networking, viewings, calls, emails and meetings, are not appreciated as being part of the property advisor’s work as the client does not see them happening. “I’m fortunate as at my age, I know my clients take me more seriously, but I see younger agents struggling much more to build their credibility. It’s not easy to work in this industry if you’re not strong willed and very determined”, she continues.
Anna has always been a very outgoing people’s person and her first job was in importation and distribution of ladies fashionwear. “I love fashion and creativity, but I was always keen to be out meeting with people more than anything else”, she quips jokingly.
Asked about her most memorable sale, she relates the story of a foreign couple who were property hunting for a rental investment some years ago. “I had shown them several properties and after considering many options, they decided to make an offer on a lovely place and the seller accepted. They were extremely grateful for my advice and loved it so much that they eventually decided to retire here in Malta, and we are still good friends to this day”.
Anna advises buyers to look for properties in good locations as they are always bound to appreciate well in value over time. For sellers, her advice is that first impressions are crucially important and to keep in mind that a few minor improvements can make a huge difference in people’s perceptions.
In her free time, Anna enjoys reading a good book with a glass of red wine at her beautiful home in San Pawl ta-Targa, and she also enjoys watching movies with her family. Travel is another big passion of hers, which for now, she has had to put on hold like the rest of us.
