Origins: From a civil engineer taking charge in the mammoth Air Force Home Program to the role of Director of Engineering at Arlington County Government and the VP of Facilities at Kennedy Center, Bo has been at the core of many complex endeavors. Yet, a desire for autonomy combined with his mother’s influence – a realtor in Annandale in the 1980s– sparked a new ambition. Enter the real estate realm.
On the other hand, Anuzia's journey kicked off from a different terrain. A psychologist with a Master’s degree in Human Resource Management, she discovered a new passion on a friend's suggestion. Today, with 9 years in the field, her grounding in psychology serves her well, adding a unique perspective to client interactions.
Leadership Evolved: Bo’s vision? A collective. Inspired by the idea of each agent being an integral part, his leadership style has foundations in organizational leadership, ensuring that the team operates more like a collective and less like a hierarchy. Anuzia, the direct and on-point co-leader, provides essential support, ensuring decisions are sharp and effective.
Pillars of Success: Their team isn’t just about transactions; it's about relationships. Bo's storytelling flair combined with Anuzia's direct, trust-building approach ensures clients feel heard, understood, and valued. Their "Nordstrom"-esque commitment to going above and beyond is exemplified in innovative strategies like drone videos, neighbors-only opens, extensive home marketing, and amenity identification cards.
Constant Evolution: Their commitment to growth is unparalleled. From team trips to Miami to connect with top agents or integrating the latest technology, they’re always in pursuit of the best. Anuzia’s initial apprehension in delegating to their Transaction Coordinator, Christine, turned into appreciation for elevating professionalism in their client interactions.
Team Dynamics: Anuzia aptly dons the hat of an advisor, sometimes the "bad cop", but always with the intent of enhancement. The team thrives in a casual, fun-filled atmosphere with open conversations. They’re each other’s backbone, sharing knowledge, leads, and fostering a camaraderie that’s tangible.
Legacy: For Bo and Anuzia, their legacy isn't just about growth in numbers but in trust, relationships, and a commitment to excellence. As they guide the Checkmate Group, their mantra remains clear: It’s always about the client.
