"I think of a seller or a buyer of a home, as a person who is trying to connect with the home of their OWN dream, " says Ofra Chanti, estate realtor at ONE Sotheby's International at Coral Gables. I chose to work at ONE Sotheby's because our marketing machine...the extraordinary outeach we have, is all over the world." In fact, she says there are many offices that she, along with her real esttate partner, Adrienne Gershon, can work from."We have worked from Miami Beach and Pinecrest, yet we also have plenty of work in Broward County. Real Estate is my passion, so whatever is best for the customer, works for me." Ofra has spent years dealing with customers on the other end of homebuying. She attained her Insurance licenses, which help her to view more aspects while she is showing a home, or previewing one. "There is an understanding I have from my home insurance background, that I bring to the table. Flood insurance, wind insurance and homeowner insurance are all part of the financial picture to realize, even before taxes are looked at. I like for our client to be totally knowledgeable about the different facets of the buying or selling experience." Ofra says that in addition to the professional aspect of the homebuying or selling journey, she and Adrienne have become friendly with the customers, spending time helping them adjust to their new surroundings after the sale closes. "Whether they need discretion, or not, moreover, if they do not know the area too well, we send links and meet with them to explore the new area which they be calling home." Ofra has lived in Miami for the past 25 years. Previous to that, she attended New York University for her Bachelor of Arts Degree. "New York is still my second home. It's where I grew up, and the tree-lined streets and architecturally beautiful Manhatten buidings are always an inspiration about the beauty of real estate."
