Nataliia provides advisory and investment sales services. She specializes in multifamily, hospitality, and residential real estate. She’s a Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS), a Real Estate Negotiation Expert (RENE), a Global Real Estate Practitioner (GREP) designee, and an upcoming Certified Financial Modeling and Valuation Analyst (FMVA). She has also been awarded the Seven Star Certificate of Excellence by the real estate trade publication Broker★Agent™ Advisor.
Nataliia’s appreciation for real estate started when she held positions with government property and development agencies in Europe. In these roles, she consulted on mergers and acquisitions, dispositions, and debt restructuring of various enterprises. Working with diverse industries and properties gave her an initial appreciation for the real estate field. That appreciation grew into a passion when Nataliia enrolled in an MBA program at Virginia International University and landed an internship with a real estate group in Virginia. She saw an opportunity to contribute to the community and local economy by rehabbing foreclosed homes and introducing them back to the market. Before long, she launched a successful real estate business upon earning her MBA in 2011. “I am very fortunate to have great mentors from the beginning of my career and up to this day,” she says, expressing her gratitude to some accomplished real estate practitioners, successful investors, and academic instructors she learned from along the way.
Besides real estate, Nataliia has another passion – the art of intercultural communication. Working as an assistant with the School of Business while she was studying for her MBA, she served as a liaison to the diverse international student body. “That’s where I acquired my global mindset and intercultural skills,” she says, and she credits her international background for her success today. “In a real estate transaction, it is crucial to be able to guide clients with different cultural backgrounds, which happens pretty often. You need to understand the cultural differences in communication and negotiation styles. It’s like being a cultural interpreter.”
Today, she uses all her experience and knowledge to help her clients, both sellers and buyers, accomplish their goals. Her approach is to contribute to others, and she always seeks to add value for her clients. “There are many different investment strategies, and each client has their own goals and meaning of success. I am mindful of that.”
Nataliia is a member of the National Association of Realtors, along with the Florida and Greater Tampa Realtors organizations; and is also a Global Affiliate of the Canadian Real Estate Association. She’s amassed a global network of real estate professionals in over 100 countries. “I am a global practitioner. Whether a client is looking for properties in Florida or around the world, I can help in one way or another.”
At the end of the day, Nataliia’s favorite part of the job is the people she gets to meet. Not only does she get to learn from each client to be an even better broker with each transaction, but she loves the relationships she has developed along the way. “I love meeting people, learning their stories, helping them. That is the best part.”
