Nobody could ever accuse Rachel O’Connor of being complaisant, or of shying away from a challenge. In 2011, she and her family migrated from their native UK, and it was then that she started to put the wheels in motion to make a successful transition to a new career in Real Estate; a decision that both she, and her many satisfied clients are thrilled that she made.
Rachel, who has a Design Graduate BA (Hons), took the fundamentals of experience gained in roles in social work, customer service, retail and small business ownership, and melded them with the passion, energy and determination required to be a successful Real Estate agent. She prides herself on having strong morals and an unwavering set of values; traits that she has instilled in her 3 children since their infancy. She believes that no result is worth sacrificing these beliefs for.
Rachel is both a creative and lateral thinker, and this allows her to assess things from a number of perspectives. She uses a proven framework, and then layers it with innovative solutions that are individually tailored to meet the needs of each client; an approach that continues to drive desirable outcomes whilst nurturing solid relationships built on mutual respect. She believes she has a natural ability to read situations, and to build rapport with people, no matter their age, gender or walk of life, and this empowers her to work with her clients in a partnership where everyone feels that they have a voice. It is no wonder that Rachel often works with clients on multiple occasions.
When asked what their experience with Rachel was like, there are a number of key themes that shine through. Her empathy and compassion, and a genuine ability to truly listen to the needs of others is noteworthy, as are her remarkable communication skills and her capacity to negotiate outstanding results.
In her down time, Rachel enjoys playing competitive roller derby. She likens this a little to a career in Real Estate. You need to be a team player, and you need to have a good mental game. It’s imperative that you’re able to preempt the obstacles that may hinder a successful outcome; sometimes you’ll take a big hit and that’s ok, but you need to be able to show the resilience to get right back up and focus on your goals and the bigger picture.
