lori@gpshousehunt.com

Let me start out with a little story ! I graduated with a degree in Communications Arts. I was sitting next to Walter Cronkit’s grandson in class, one day; I said to myself; “Self, who do you think the network is going to hire?” I finished my degree and went on to Facilities and Real Estate Management; that was 1980’s and never looked back. I’ve had my Real Estate Sales License in NY since 1997 and in NJ in 2017. Yes, I can help you into your first home; or help you move up into investment property! I worked for Cushman and Wakefield; working in their Corp Headquarters in NYC – in a little known niche - Commercial Condos. It was the 80’s, rentals were down; Owner’s were “going condo” to move their units, and get out from under a bad real estate market. I was with SL Green,in the 90’s when everyone was going REIT. WHAT NEXT? Been thru several more market trends and swings, since then; It’s cyclical. Don’t let anyone tell you the market can’t come back! ‘The Market” always comes back ! My best advice: Own; build equity, no matter what you have to start out in. Renter’s only make the Landlords rich. That being said, ATTENTION all my potential investors; being a Landlord can suck – ask anyone who has done it. But it can be done, just be realistic. I’ll give you your first tip, you DO NOT just sit back and let someone else pay the mortgage. If you did – I wouldn’t have had a job for the past 20+ years. Since the 80’s I’ve worked for major real estate developers and owners; Cushman & Wakefield (yes, a second time) Related Companies ( bringing you the Hudson Yards) and CBRE, one of the largest management and brokerage Cos. today. I’ve managed, redeveloped, repositioned, worked on design/build industrial properties. Properties ran from Wooster MA to South Beach and Key Biscayne Fl. Experienced in Professional property manager, experience in commercial, residential and retail properties. In-depth knowledge of all financial aspects of property management. * optimize revenues * increase value * improve efficiencies of properties. * Extensive experience supervising all mechanical operations, repairs and maintenance. * Solid project management skills My expertise is taking under and non performing properties and assets and turning them into a marketable property. Yes, I can help you into your first home; or help you move up into investment property!

As broker, developer, and renovator, I have the experience to answer your questions, and most importantly, to negotiate the best price for your purchases and sales. I have designed and built new homes and townhouses and renovated historic homes, churches, and schools. Whether you are looking for your first home, working toward a 1031 Tax-deferred exchange, or hoping to maximize your CAP Rate with an investment purchase, I built my company so that you'll have an opportunity to work with someone who will help you reach your real estate goals. The many years I spent in international sales & marketing serves me well in real estate. British Airways, starting as a junior marketing manager and ending up in VIP Passenger Relations. While at BA I gained my MBA in Business Marketing. Pilkington Communication Systems as International Sales & Marketing Director, and the George P. Johnson Group (GPJ) where I was SVP Global Marketing & Operations, traveling around the world organizing exhibitions and conferences for many fortune 500 companies. It was GPJ who sponsored my board position at the World Trade Centers Association here in NY which ultimately led me to pursue real estate after the tragedy of 9/11. Real estate puts my vast experience in global marketing to maximum use. I hit the ground running back in early 2002 and never looked back. Four years ago I founded Global Property Systems, born of the frustration of traditional practices and not being able to break out of the box. So I created what has become an emerging trend. Global Property Systems is a team based brokerage where each member contributes to the other team members success. In traditional real estate brokerages the agents are the brokers clients, in a team brokerage, the end user is the client; our sellers and buyers. This groundbreaking system overcomes the weaknesses of traditional real estate by enabling each member of the team access to the entire team's knowledge which in turn provides our clients a truly exemplary experience. My no nonsense, ethical and technological approach to real estate combined with my international business background works well. The entire team and our clients benefit from my vast global network of professionals from attorneys to appraisers, bankers and builders our local experts ensure smooth transactions for all parties to a transaction.

A home is more than a return address: It’s where you wake up in the morning, hazy sunlight pouring in through your bedroom window. It’s where you recharge your batteries after a long day and an even longer commute. It’s where you spend time with the people you love, sharing stories and a bottle of wine.

 

The team at Global Property Systems are homeowners too, and understand what our clients need. Perhaps you want a gourmet kitchen, or maybe you dream of a balcony with a view. No matter what your checklist entails, our local area specialists are here to help you find a fit, a match, a place to fill with souvenirs of a well-lived life. 

 

Real estate, we've learned, is all about home. When our Principal Vanessa Saunders launched Global Property Systems she wanted to celebrate this concept.  We are a team of home owners, and know there is no better feeling than unlocking your front door at the end of the day and unwinding in your own oasis. Light candles, put on pajamas, and make popcorn — whatever your routine, we aim to find your very own oasis to call home.

 

Whether you’re buying your first place or selling one in order to purchase another, we promise to partner with you, providing the very best resources and support.
