Surterre Properties® Welcomes Roula Fawaz
Posted by Claire Adams — February 7, 2012
Surterre Properties® is proud to announce the addition of Roula Fawaz — one of Orange County’s most accomplished real estate professionals — to its team of agents and brokers.
No discussion on the greater Irvine/Tustin real estate marketplace would be complete without a mention of Roula. A Lebanon native who moved to the United States two decades ago, she’s managed not only to make a name for herself in a highly competitive industry, but to swiftly outperform legions of agents and brokers with much more experience. She credits her rapid success — which has remained consistent since the onset of her career in 1993 — primarily to her integrity, both as a professional and a person.
“No matter what the circumstances, I treat my clients the way I’d want to be treated,” she asserts. “And I don’t simply tell them what they want to hear. Their trust means the world to me, and I know the only way to maintain that trust is with honesty and integrity at all times.”
The other defining characteristic that’s propelled Roula’s industry domination is her innate knack for negotiating the most favorable deals. The former teacher claims this talent is in her blood, and considering the fact that she’s closed more than a half-billion dollars in sales — a number that places her among the elite upper tier of agents in the nation — few would argue with that.
Roula’s decision to partner with Surterre Properties® was a critical one. Excited to embark on the next chapter of her career, she wanted to make certain she became part of an organization that’s moving forward — a brokerage that’s committed to supporting its agents just as much as it’s committed to the well-being of every client served. Given Surterre’s many innovative aspects — an in-house marketing team, advanced industry technology, a unique team-focused environment, and a company-wide dedication to perfecting the art of old-fashioned service, to name a few — there really wasn’t any other option. Roula is more than confident that, as part of Surterre, she’s placed herself in the best possible position to further refine the remarkable experiences she creates for every one of the buyers and sellers she represents. She is also thrilled to be a part of Surterre’s growing presence in the Irvine real estate market.
“I had been with the same brokerage since the onset of my career, so pursuing another company was a very difficult and significant decision,” she stated. “I researched other organizations, but not one of them came close to Surterre in terms of innovation. What they’re doing is nothing short of extraordinary. I am absolutely thrilled to have joined, and look forward to a long and rewarding partnership. More than that, I look forward to taking the services I offer my clients to the next level.”
Roula’s clientele can trust that they are in good hands, as she knows that in business as in life, trust can never be bought; it can only be earned. Buying or selling a home can be one of the most stressful experiences you may encounter, and Roula’s goal is to make this experience as stress-free and smooth as possible.
As a personal real estate consultant, Roula makes it her first job to oversee both the financial and emotional interests of her clients when it comes to finding or selling their home. Roula is ever attentive, responsive, and assertive when it comes to their needs and best interests.
With years of real estate experience behind her, Roula has the knowledge, the experience, and the negotiating skills to provide her buyers and sellers with exceptional real estate service. “I will do everything in my power to meet, if not exceed, my clients' expectations, making sure they are always in good hands,” says Roula.
One of the most rewarding aspects in this career for Roula is the people she meets and the relationships she builds. Being a people person, Roula has enjoyed and befriended many of her clients. “I have truly been blessed in meeting so many wonderful people throughout these years.” Roula makes every effort to stay in touch; watching their families grow is priceless. After all it is the business of people and Roula loves it. As a friend once told her, you were born to be a Realtor. And Roula believes it!
Finding her niche as a real estate professional has been life-changing for Roula. She truly believes that America has been the catalyst in bringing her greatest dreams and aspirations to fruition.
“My family and I feel so fortunate for the life we’ve made for ourselves here,” she says. “Not a day goes by that we don’t count our blessings.”
An avid tennis player who loves working out, Roula also enjoys golfing, swimming, gardening and spending time with her family.
