Meet Margaret Garemore of Podley Properties and Resolve It! Mediation in Pasadena

Today we’d like to introduce you to Margaret Garemore.

Margaret, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I am a REALTOR and Certified California Real Estate Mediator. I started as a REALTOR and Broker working in real estate in the San Gabriel Valley, but the need for reliable dispute resolution services in the real estate marketplace lead me to branch out and become a Mediator.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Working as a REALTOR and Mediator has been a 20-year journey. The real estate market is unpredictable from year to year, and day to day. We have a saying in the industry, “you wake up every morning unemployed.” Building a client base is challenging and takes time. Becoming a Mediator is even more difficult. For many years the term “mediation” was confusing to people. I would say the hardest part of being a Mediator is connecting with the right audience. People don’t know there is a dispute resolution forum for any type of real estate related problem – it can be a landlord/tenant issue, HOA disputes or problems that arise when buying or selling a property.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Podley Properties and Resolve It! Mediation – what should we know?
I am a residential Real Estate specialist for problem sales and situations. I handle all types of matters including home sales in divorce, foreclosure, short sales, family disputes, neighborhood disputes, home defects and more. As a REALTOR MEDIATOR I can handle the tough situations that need a calm head plus good business and negotiation skills.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
To be successful it takes good people skills and tremendous patience. I am able to listen objectively to the client’s problems, needs and goals. Being a good listener and understanding what is important to the client, and knowing what to do, is critical in every situation.
