Paula Traver has become a fixture on the island as a member of Sea Pines Real Estate and as a local leader in the industry, with TV appearances adding to her already high profile. We asked her a few questions on what makes up her secret to success.
Q: How long have you been in business?
A: 17 years on Hilton Head Island but I bought my first home at age 19. That was the true start with my love affair of real estate.
Q: What challenges did you face as a woman in the real estate business?
A: With over 1,900 agents, one needs to be ambitious. If you put the time and energy into your clients, you will achieve results.
Q: Who are your biggest supporters?
A: My husband and children! They never complained. In the begin-ning, I was commuting from Connecticut. Ironically, during my commuting years I had the most transactions!
Q: To what do you attribute your success?
A: Not being pushy. Always pointing out the bad I see on a property as well as the good. That has always served me well.
