Thank You, Connie for 17 Years of Partnership
Bennion Deville Homes REALTOR® Connie Zelig, based out of the La Quinta office located at 47-350 Washington Street, Suite 101, recently celebrated 17 years of affiliation with Bennion Deville Homes. As a seasoned real estate professional, Connie enjoys leveraging her experience to help her clients purchase and sell homes in the desert, specializing in retirement communities such as Sun City Palm Desert and Sun City Shadow Hills. Her outgoing and welcoming personality toward all endears her to clients, colleagues, and fellow residents, establishing her tagline “Connie Zelig – I Know That Name!”
Connie broke into the industry in 1973 and built an immensely successful business in Los Angeles before heading east to the desert to continue her career. “I was hired by the sales manager of an upscale 343-unit townhome complex called Studio Village in Studio City, California, to assist in getting them sold and had to get my license to do it,” begins Connie. “After Studio Village, I sold Fashion Villas in Sherman Oaks, then went into residential resale and over the years established myself as the ‘Condo Queen.’ The experience of selling communities, going to HOA Board meetings, and getting to know the people and personality of each development enabled me to ease into selling real estate in the Coachella Valley when I moved here in 2002.”
With a long-standing career in the real estate industry, Connie continues to find joy in working with and helping people each day. This passion for people fuels her long-term success, especially in the beautiful Sun City communities, a place where she loves to live, work, and play. “The key to success is enjoying what I do with the people I work with, and the satisfaction at the end of the day of being involved in all facets of the transaction. I love the independence we have in performing our duties and helping our clients. There are so many interesting people from so many different areas who are relocating to our wonderful desert to start another life here, and I am always honored when they choose me to help them establish that foundation.”
Connie has learned a lot while creating a thriving business in a very competitive profession. “The biggest lesson I have learned is that we don’t have to know everything, just where to find it when we need it by developing strong relationships with others. Knowing who to call is important, which is why networking is so important. As you get to know people, you come to understand their strengths and who you can rely on to lend some expert advice or help you out in a specific situation.”
As far as the role of Bennion Deville Homes in her success, Connie has enjoyed a positive and beneficial relationship with her brokerage. “I happened on a fairly new real estate company in 2003 shortly after I moved to the desert, and here we are 17 years later,” she says. “There have been many twists and turns along the way, but we are always forward thinking. I have many fond memories of my years with Bennion Deville Homes and look forward to creating many more in the years to come,” Connie concludes.
Adds Managing Broker George Baca, “Connie Zelig has built an impressive career on the back of her ability to connect with others, regardless of where they come from or what their goals are. She is naturally gifted at helping people by uncovering their needs through the process of getting to know them and then delivering with an exceptional brand of service. We would like to thank Connie for her 17 years of partnership with Bennion Deville Homes and we look forward to working with her for many more years.”
