Proving quickly that she has what it takes to achieve success for her clients, Sylvia Young obtained her broker’s license in 2005. She worked independently in her own brokerage until joining The Power Is Now, Inc., in 2017. She has continued that success throughout her stellar career.
Business acumen and insight, negotiation skills, and the ability to evaluate market value are all strengths Sylvia gained as a business owner and entrepreneur and has fine-tuned as a real estate professional. Her clients and colleagues alike value those vital elements of her expertise. Indeed, accolades always follow her transactions.
An additional key to the success Sylvia attains for her buyers and sellers is the energy directed into meeting their unique needs. She listens carefully and provides timely, knowledgeable information such as analysis and estimation of renovation or repair costs, skills she has attained by personally owning and maintaining several homes. Sylvia’s residence in the Bay Area has also allowed her to gain a local’s insight into neighborhoods, services, schools, and other community information.
