It’s a new year, GVL, and we’ve been thinking about how best to set the tone and commit to better routines at home and at work this year.

We asked top local real estate broker/owner Joan Herlong to share her top professional lessons from 2023 to help guide us to a productive, happier + more meaningful 2024.

Here’s what she had to say:

  1. Lead with honor, advocacy, and expertise.
  2. Constantly build relationships and nurture them.
  3. Build out a strong business plan.
  4. Commit to always learning.
  5. Pivot and adapt when necessary.
  6. Find the joy in everyday moments — and don’t forget to laugh and have fun.
