REALLY™ Agent Spotlight: Jacqueline Kraszewski

REALLY™ Agent Spotlight: Jacqueline Kraszewski

Warwick, New York is one of those beautiful, small, hometown-type places that don’t seem to exist anymore. You know, the kind that has a homecoming parade through the center of town and where you’re just one degree of separation from the person standing next to you in line at a local cafe. Historic, with gorgeous scenery, Jacqueline (Jacque) Kraszewski was drawn to Warwick along with her husband fifteen years ago. She thought it would be a great place to settle and raise a family; two children, one dog, and one career-change later, she was right. Now, she wants to give other people that same feeling — the feeling of knowing where and what you want to call home.

Jacque has a presence about her, reassured and friendly with enough tell-it-like-it-is attitude to know she’d be a terrible bluff. Her voice is clear and unabashed with baited attention to the speaker. As we start our conversation, I ask Jacque about what drew her to the industry. “I love working with people one on one & anything to do with helping others find their “home” and home design,” she says effervescently. For Jacque, Real Estate is not just sales, but an element of passion and creativity, as well.

Her passion for properties and more importantly, for people, come through her approach to Real Estate. She has helped many clients make critical, small improvement decisions to their homes for quick-to-close sales. “I like to help sellers stage their home. I like to help people show their property in the best light,” she says very matter-of-factly. Jacque also guides buyer clients to see the potential in properties they would have initially overlooked. She likes to “help people reinvent a space [and] imagine what the house could be.”

Jacque tells me that she has been in the industry for almost six years. Her initial attraction and love for the Warwick community is what drew her to join the neighborhood firm- Green Team Realty. Jacque enjoys working for the Green Team because of the way that it reinvests back in the local community in addition to reinvesting in its agents. It’s more of an “agent-centered office… that tries to offer as much training as possible,” which Jacque is grateful for and genuinely enjoys. Jacque is not afraid to work hard and change gears, if needed. She has a beautiful faith and work ethic that comes through the projects she undertakes. So, being a part of a team that supports its agents growing and learning is a great fit for her.

Genuinely, Jacque tells me that she type of agent that hopes her clients end up as friends. She believes that the “customer comes first” and that every person “deserves a place to call home.” She is a fantastic communicator and support to her clients. With concern and care in her voice, Jacque expresses that she always hopes to make the process as “easy and painless as possible.” As we all know, home buying and selling can be one of the most stressful moments of a client’s life; Jacque hopes to take the stress out of the process (as much a she can) for her client even when it comes to translating the market to them. For Jacque, getting clients to “understand and accept what the market is” and “having buyers be realistic of the expectation of what they should offer or what offers sellers should expect to get” can be a challenge. With tremendous tact and clarity, Jacque helps guide her clients through otherwise difficult realizations and helps “them to not take it personally.”

I really enjoy speaking with Jacque; her upbeat attitude and willing humor make the conversation go longer than normal interviews. She is authentic, refreshing, and incredibly dedicated to her profession. Early on in our discussion when I had asked Jacque why she became an agent, she had told me she truly likes “working with people” and it’s obvious to me that her heart is fully in finding her clients their perfect home.

REALLY Monthly Roundup - December 2018

A few years ago we had an idea to simplify the way agents send and receive referrals. We were tired of wasting our time calling out-of-market agents, waiting for a callback, and trying to verify agents in order to qualify them to refer our most precious asset — our client. We wanted a better way.

Introducing REALLY. The better, smarter, faster real estate referral network for Agents. A network made up of a community of like-minded Real Estate Professionals enabling them to grow their referral business.

REALLY Reminders

  • Enable notifications for the REALLY app. Enabling notifications allow you to learn of any open referral in your area when the opportunity arises.
  • Update the REALLY app often. The development team is constantly creating new updates.
  • Post in Community. We want you to share your thoughts, suggestions, ideas, or maybe a relevant article you came across. Our Community section is a tremendous opportunity to network and collaborate with other agents inside of such a competitive industry.
  • Send a Referral — It’s REALLY easy.
  • Receive a Referral — Be ready; check often. We have a community of agents waiting to step up and claim these.

Platform Update — What’s new on REALLY

You spoke and we listened. We enhanced the profile module allowing for a more descriptive snapshot of each individual agent.

Sending a REALLY Easy Referral is now even easier with our updated referral module with the focus of making clear to the user how to both send and redeem a referral.

Referral Success Team Spotlight

We are excited to see referrals cross our path. Our referral success team was able to connect referrals between New York, Tampa, & Arizona to name a few. Be ready — the next one is coming your way!

This month it was our pleasure to introduce to you Rafael Rosario in our Agent Spotlight. Take a moment to read about our Miami friend who exudes enthusiasm and a love of his community. If you would like to be our next featured agent shoot us a message!


Our community is your “safe” space. In this tremendously competitive profession, this is your opportunity to help one another and work together. In the past month, we’ve seen some really cool ideas.

For example, Laura Marie, from St. Pete Florida, shared a holiday custom note card with which she had success. Additionally, she added a link on how to create your own. Amazing job, thanks Laura!

Another agent, Raylene Lewis, in College Station Texas shared a unique way to gain attention to a listing. To show this home, she told a story of a football game, LSU vs. Texas A & M, using photos, jokes, and hidden easter eggs. It was an incredibly creative way to gain attention to her listing resulting in excellent exposure. Thanks for sharing Raylene!

These ideas and many more are what makes our community so special. Be sure to share with us something that has been helpful to you or maybe something you’ve learned throughout your journey.
