You will be hard pressed to find another individual that exhibits more passion and drive to succeed.  Most  would describe me as assertive and persistent who is exceptional at "Cold Call" knowing exactly what to say to get the appointment and how to convert the prospect when he gets there.  I consider myself highly competitive, assertive, take-charge, and risk oriented. I have a high level of sociability with the ability to communicate persuasively that generates buzz and excitement.  My method of selling tends to be very focused on the needs and wants of my prospects and customers working to bring strategic value to each transaction.


Determined to attain a position in sales where my savvy business to business sales skills, ability to understand and convey complex information, self-motivation, and a results-driven work ethic will ignite company market share and boost customer satisfaction.

I am honored to write a letter of recommendation on the behalf of Desiree Burtis.  Desiree was my realtor for two years and sold my first house and helped me purchase a new home.  I cannot say enough positive things about her.

Desiree offered an energetic level of personalized service to me that in my opinion is unsurpassed, rare and difficult to find today.  In my first encounter with Desiree, she demonstrated integrity and care for my concerns.  At the time I was shopping for a realtor and I chose her over another realtor because she took the time to listen to my needs.  She was patient with me and helped walk me through the process of selling a home.  I appreciated her honesty with me throughout the process.  Desiree displayed an energetic zeal for selling my home and found a buyer within 4 – 5 months of placing it on the market during a difficult market.

Desiree’s honesty and integrity coupled with her hospitable personality made it easy for me to trust her implicitly with handling the selling and purchasing of my homes.  I am always skeptical of any salesperson if I sense that they are strictly in it for themselves.  Desiree has such a passion for working with people and the desire to help people have what they want for themselves that it makes her easily trustworthy and dependable.  She truly cares about her customers.

Desiree will be an asset to any organization that desires an energetic, honest, and highly motivated salesperson who puts the needs of her customers first.  I would have no hesitation in calling on her again.

If I can be of further assistance, please feel free to contact me at 205-807-1743.
