Stroudsburg – Christine A. Wilkins, Exec V.P./General Manager announced the hiring of four new Salespersons to their BHG real estate force. Hired were Rica E. McKingley, Liliana Cesarano and Ingrid Eagon to the Stroudsburg office and Denise Gareis to the Bushkill office.
Liliana Cesarano was recruited by Alexa Sanchez, Realtor and hired by Dennis Mooney, Sr. V.P. Cesarano has lived in the Poconos for over 11 years, residing in East Stroudsburg. Cesarano originally was from Columbia, South America and will work under Alexa Sanchez, Team Leader of Pocono Latino Real Estate Group. As Team Leader, Sanchez markets heavily in the Pocono Latino community and is active in a number of social and fraternal organizations. Cesarano has prior experience in the real estate field as a real estate investor and in sales and rentals.
Said Wilklow, “I recruit on a fairly steady basis and the same question always comes up—‘who’s going to train me and how do I learn how to list and sell real estate’; and of course, my answer is always the same—‘we, your Managers, coaches and mentors will train you; and the best part is it’s all for free.”
Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, through the Greenhouse, offers numerous programs for experienced and new agents to better their careers.
Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate teaches another important part of the business and that’s time management. When you have someone that has worked for their self or has been in the corporate travel industry which requires multi-tasking, it definitely helps strengthen their real estate career.
Said Mooney, “Over 90 percent of the recruits we’re bringing into the business are maintaining themselves in the business as full-time Realtors. Although we have some that still continue at a 40-hour a week job, they’ve committed themselves to an additional 30 hours in real estate and it’s paying off for them. We simply took the word ‘part-time’ out of our vocabulary and now with virtual agents the idea that I’ve got to be at the office has changed.”

Pocono, Wilkins has remained a leader in the Pocono Real Estate industry. Thomas R. Wilkins, CEO and founder of the company predicts 2016 to be a strong market. Wilkins stated, “I haven’t seen the December numbers yet, but I have to assume that we beat 2014 and I would have to say that 2016 should beat 2015, or at least that’s the way it’s supposed to go.”
