Pres.,Licensed Real Estate Broker Consultant
Not Just Homes Realty, Inc./Turn Key Real Estate
April 1998 - present
I moved to this new office because, at the time, I felt it was in a much better location (not that it means anything today, due to the internet explosion in 1995 and after and the methods in which clients and customers can find you!) and a much, much better office Environment that suited my needs and wants.
I continued with advancing my education and also began to volunteer for various committees through the MLS/LIBOR Service of Long Island. I am presently on the following committees: Advertising, Technology, Grievance, Budget and Finance Committees, which perform valuable services for the over 20,000 Brokers and Agents in the MLS of Long Island (Also, we happen to be the largest MLS in the U.S.). This is strictly on a volunteer basis and we do not get remunerated for these extremely important positions. We help the MLS service to be better organized, cutting edge, leading to a much more smoother operating entity, while saving the corporation tens of thousands of dollars!
In June of 1998, after being in the same office for over 3 years, I got the itch to own a business again, so after 5 years of learning and earning, I once again took the plunge and bought the company and changed the name to Not Just Homes Realty, assumed name, Turn Key Real Estate, since we were so multifaceted, that we did more than just sell, invest, purchase and rent, homes, Townhomes, HOA's, Condos, Coops, Commercial Sales and Leasing for sellers, Investors, purchasers & tenants.
Sales, Investments, 1021 Exchanges, Purchases, Rentals, Leases, Short Sales/Foreclosures-Residential, Homes, Condos, Coops, HOA's, Apt Buildings, Strip Centers, Retail, Restaurants, Gas Stations, Office Space, Industrial, Warehouses Etc. We also have an in house Mortgage & Insurance Broker to to guide you through your Real Estate Mortgages, Refi's, Lines of Credit & Construction Loans and ALL FORMS OF INSURANCE as was noted above.
We even can suggest and reccomend contractors in all phases of construction, repairs and upgrades to your properties. Lastly, we began management services in 2006 and are continuing to advance that portion of the business to enhance our bottom line. I find this a very exciting and rewarding time to be in this business! As the old adage goes, "If you keep doing the same thing, expecting different results, then, that is what I call "Business Insanity."
As I began my new career in 1993 and to date, I also performed and currently volunteer my services such as:

C-21 Madeleine Bodner
March 1994 - March 1995
This was my second office I associated myself with from March 1994 to April 1995. I was fortunate enoughat the time, to be able to enroll in all theC-21 advanced courses that were afforded at the corporate level, which greatly advanced my knowledge, credibility and foundation as an Associate Broker (receiving my next level Associate Broker's license in 1.5 years after entering the business!) I was the most successful listing Broker in the office from 1994-1995. I valued my time at this office and gained a greater scope & depth of the real estate industry and furthered my desire to advance my career in this business. Lastly, I completed many other courses to keep abreast and ahead of the individuals in the real estate industry and to have that extra edge of knowledge and confidence to excel. I also began my G.R.I. designation (Graduate Realtor Institute), which truly set me apart from most licensed agents and brokers in real estate. I had to complete 90 hours of advanced courses, above a Brokers License and went on to gain the accreditation. In March of 1995, I moved again to another office called Turn Key Realty LLC.

N.Y.S. Certified Professional Lawn-Tree-Shrub Applicator & Landscape/Irrigation Designer
Lawn-A-Mat & Lawn Gro Lawn Care, Inc
March 1969 - August 1993
I began my career and education in the field on a part time basis working for my dad in 1969 for his franchise called Lawn-A-Mat lawn service. We were a professional lawn-tree & shrub application service company. In 1974, New York State decided to have all those in the industry applying chemicals to properties, become licensed. I studied a very large comprehensive manual of educational material and passed the state exam. Then after college I began my journey and worked for my dad for 4 years and then borrowed $5000 to start Lawn Gro in the winter of 1977. I provided more services, Lawn-Tree-Shrub Applications, Landscape/Irrigation services and even started a carpet cleaning division. I grew the company and bought my father's company in 1979. I stayed in the business continually from March of 1977 and then sold the company to one of my ex-employees on August 4, 1993. I serviced several thousand homeowners with all their exterior lawn, tree and shrub needs and wants; from preventive disease and insect controls, organic and inorganic applications, plus I practiced I.P.M. (integrated pest management)
This method of controlling diseases and insects was accomplished by careful and methodical regular inspections of my clients properties. More important was the training I provided to my service people, that was instrumental in both our success leading us to a more profitable company.
