Another post in our series showcasing Traditions of America team members in action, today we feature Bonnie Feldman in her role as Resale Manager for Traditions Realty (the home resale division of Traditions of America). Bonnie, a licensed Pennsylvania Realtor, is also an Accredited Staging Professional and she knows what it takes to position a home in the best light to sell quickly. Many of our homeowners have a home to sell before they buy a new home with Traditions of America and Bonnie’s expertise is second to none. With our innovative Buying Made Easy programs, last year Bonnie helped over 250 people sell their existing home and Live Better at a Traditions of America community!
Q: Describe your typical day at TOA?
A: I manage the home sales for Traditions Realty customers, which means I am in constant contact with relocation agents, as well as future homeowners, to ensure the process of selling their current home is easy and stress-free.

Q: Favorite part about your job?
A: I truly love speaking to our customers. It is beyond rewarding to know I have assisted someone in beginning this new, exciting chapter in their life. I try to help the customers in any way I can and often spend hours on the phone each day providing support.
Q: Most memorable moment in TOA career?
A: The most memorable moments have to be the Grand Openings – whether for a community, model home, or a clubhouse – I am always in the thick of the excitement and eager to help in any way I can! It is inspiring to see the entire Traditions of America team come together to collectively orchestrate a spectacular event. It’s also great to have everyone in the same place, as I get a chance to interact with all my fellow co-workers, who work both near and far.
