Angie has been a Realtor for 18 years. She works hard negotiating for her clients and runs her business exclusively by Referral. She chose this career for a variety of reasons. Many, many years ago, she earned her degree in Liberal Studies and wanted to become a teacher. She wanted a career where she could make a difference in peoples lives. After she started teaching, she realized she did not have what it took to teach children all day and then come home to her own (she had two young children at the time). She began to focus more and more on Real Estate, and realized she could use her skills in a completely different field, and still make a difference. It was the best decision she ever made.
The biggest influence when starting her business was her dad, Sabet Elgazzar. He emigrated from Egypt and worked in San Francisco as an engineer, and also obtained his Real Estate license. He worked only with close friends and family, helping them achieve the American Dream. Angie loved watching him work. Once she decided to become a Realtor, she knew she wanted to be just like him, but on a much larger scale as this would be her main focus, her career. Her dad taught her everything she knows about having a strong business mind, an entrepreneurial spirit and how to be the best negotiator.
Angie became a member of NAWBO to have an opportunity to interact with the many successful women in the Bay area. She would love to build strong referral relationships with the members of NAWBO and connect with women, to hear their advice and the keys to being the best in their field.
The best advice she have ever received? This is a tough one, as she has been fortunate enough to have many people by her side, encouraging her along the way. One piece of advice that really resonated with her was from a man named Jim Finegold. He told her, "I have lost more deals than I have won, but I am still very successful. Don't let losing one deal ever bring you down. Just keep going and focusing on the wins."
- Angie's greatest joy is spending time with her new twin grandbabies!! They just turned one - a boy and a girl - and they are the reason for her why.
- She loves the beach! She often escapes to San Francisco Ocean Beach when she needs to clear her head.
- Her favorite restaurant is Postino in Lafayette!
