Let’s read on to learn more about them below:
Janice, how long have you been in Property Management and Real Estate Sales?
I have been a Realtor for 22 years and a Property Manager for 17 years, all here in Las Vegas.
Have you always done this line of work?
No, I started my working career as a Cigarette Girl, working for my mom’s company, Sterling Concessions. She operated cigarette concessions in the Tropicana, Sahara and Dunes Hotels for over 25 years. After she retired, I started my casino career working my last job as a Floor Supervisor at the Mirage Hotel in the Table Games Department.
With the tragedy of the World Trade Towers in 2001, I was laid off along with 5000 other MGM/Mirage employees. At that point I realized I needed to reinvent myself and began the journey into Real Estate. I am so thankful that I did because I love it!
What is one of the things you enjoy about real estate sales services?
Working with families who are moving to Las Vegas! They are always so excited and usually have great stories about where they are relocating from. I love showing them the city and surrounding areas. It is always fun and they usually become good friends.
Why would someone want to use Cofield Real Estate
Because we love what we do and we always strive to meet or exceed all of our client’s needs. Our clients are our #1 priority and we strive to provide outstanding service, superior negotiating, and protection for our clients.
Real Estate is the biggest investment most people will make in their life, as such, we want them to enter the contract fully informed and protected.
If someone was interested in pursuing this career, what would be the most important thing you would tell them?
You must enjoy working with people. You must be a person who has their client’s best interest at heart. Money should not be your motivator. If you are good to your clients the money will always follow.
Do you have a social media page where people can connect with you?
Yes, we are on Linkedin and Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/cofieldrealestate/ or https://www.linkedin.com/in/janice-cofield-569b608/
How has your experience been working in a coworking environment, and would you recommend it to others?
We love it here, it has a great, easy going and welcoming feel. Like family, and what more could you want than that! I would recommend it to anyone. It’s perfect for small companies who enjoy working with and learning from others. It really does have a great vibe!
