Patricia Guernsey’s 23-year journey as a Realtor has been one of fulfillment and constant learning. A recent lesson involved company culture and the importance of not only having the right staff, but also being willing to trust their abilities and delegate. “That’s been an ongoing challenge,” she admits. “But having positive people around you who have a common goal is amazing.”

Looking at 2018, Guernsey says she has concerns about further government intervention in the industry, which she feels has been heavy-handed. “A few bad eggs have been caught doing terrible things, but the majority of us play by the rules,” she says. “But they feel the need to punish us all. It doesn’t help the consumer.”
