Why We Chose Traci Madison

“I had the pleasure to brand Traci’s company, Madison Real Estate. What’s really impressed me about her is that in 2 years she’s tripled the number of agents. Every day it seems she’s having an open house or congratulating a client on the selling or purchasing of their home. She’s always posting amazing photos to inspire those searching for their dream home. AND, she still has time to go out and network. She knows how to work it — she knows how to work her brand, work the room, build truly meaningful relationships, and she can throw one hell of a party. Everyone who knows her, loves her… myself included.”

Tell us a little bit about your business Madison Real Estate

We are a boutique real estate brokerage located in the heart of the residential Bear, Delaware area. Our firm specializes in helping consumers buy and sell residential real estate in both the states of Delaware and Maryland. We assist consumers with normal resales, new construction, short sales, and foreclosures.

How do you motivate yourself, and stay motivated?

I work with a great, great group of clients. Assisting them with their goals of buying and selling their properties or family member properties gives me fuel to do the best I can for them. I’m honored that they trust us. I also work with a fantastic group of agents. Helping them maneuver different real estate scenarios and having it end in a closing is very fulfilling. I also try to read various real estate articles weekly to stay on top of industry trends and changes.

What advice would you give to young women looking to succeed in the real estate industry?

Be persistent and follow your gut. Always be ready to learn from experienced veterans, but don’t allow yourself to feel intimidated. Build your client base one transaction at a time doing the best you can for folks and you will succeed.

What inspired you to start your own business?

My buyer volume and leads began to grow and I needed trained team members to funnel leads to, and assist with the continuous growth of our team. Ideas began to flow about how to structure the team, one thing led to another and Madison Real Estate was born!

What change do you want to see in the world, and how are you aiding that cause?

I am a Bible reader and truly believe the world would be a different and better place if everyone lived by Bible principles. For the last two years, I’ve been learning ASL at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses and sharing the good news from the Bible with the deaf community here in Delaware. It has been and continues to be an awesome experience.

If you had to start over from scratch knowing what you know now, would you do anything different? If so, what would you do?

Maybe I would have become licensed right out of high school!

Give a shout out to a woman or women who you consider to be your mentor(s)

Easiest question ever…Hey Mom! My mother, Priscilla Lynch, has always been the definition of a lady and taught me and my sister Kelly to be the same. I’m so blessed to have a Mom liker her. Love you Mom!

That’s a wrap! Congratulations to our Top 10 Most Inspiring Women 2018!
