Let’s learn a bit about this month’s featured APA member – Kathie Currier, Seniors Real Estate Specialist with Coldwell Banker Realty.
APA: Describe what your business provides to the community and how you do it.
I focus my business on working with older adults who need to sell a home in order to transition into a retirement/care community. I also work with many who need to sell a home to settle an estate after losing a loved one. My goal is to make everything less stressful and more successful for them.
APA: How long have you lived in Cincinnati? Where else have you called home?
I consider myself a native Cincinnatian with a few side trips. I have also lived in Texas and Alabama. I returned home in 1981, and have been here ever since.
APA: What are you most proud of?
I am proud to say that my work with older adults was recognized at the Ohio Association of Realtors (OAR) level when they asked me to conduct a Continuing Education class on working with seniors at the last OAR convention that was held in Cincinnati. Also, during my work for a large Northern Kentucky developer, I chaired their in-house United Way campaign and secured 100% employee participation in donations – a company first!
APA: If we were to ask your best friends about you, what would he/she say?
Great question! I really don’t know but I hope they would say that I am very ethical and professional, fair-minded, reliable, and trustworthy. When I say I will do something, I mean it and it will get done.
APA: What type(s) of music do you like and why?
When I’m in my office, I like to listen to WGUC classical music because it relaxes me and doesn’t have words that would distract me and make me want to sing with it. In the car, I like to be young again and listen to oldie goldies from the 60’s - 80’s.
