The agents, management and staff of Prudential Gallo Realtors welcome sales agent Pam Szypulski to the company's Bethany Beach office.
Szypulski, a Washington, D.C. native, was raised in Montgomery County, Md., and purchased a home in Bethany Beach in 1989. She moved there permanently in 1994.
"We decided to move here for the slower-paced lifestyle," Szypulski said. "We wanted to start fresh and enjoy what the area has to offer."
For 32 years she was a prominent stylist in the Washington suburbs, particularly enjoying working with people. When she moved to Delaware, she worked as the breakfast chef at a B&B in downtown Bethany. Then she began working real-estate rentals, then moved into sales and has been enjoying her profession since 1989.
"Each of these jobs gave me great insight as to what public wanted in regard to places to stay and property values. I love finding people's dreams or helping them sell their properties. The quest is so enjoyable and rewarding when concluded," she said.
A firm believer in the value of further education, Szypulski is an associate broker and holds the professional designations Accredited Buyers Representative, Certified Residential Specialist, Graduate Realtors Institute and Seniors Real Estate Specialist.
"Wherever I go, I strive to be the top in that profession. From earning my senior license in cosmetology to becoming an associate broker, I always want to be the best that I can be," she said.
"I am so happy to welcome Pam to our group," said Mary Cerami, broker and sales manager of the Bethany Beach office. "She is a real part of this community, and that is such a strength in helping clients find the right property."
Szypulski and her husband are very involved in their local church, especially in mission work. For many years, he was a church choir director and she the costumer-maker for passion plays. She also helped and worked in the children's church program.
"I have incredible listening skills," she said, "and I have developed good negotiating skills for either side of a transaction. Buying or selling - I love them both."
