Norman, a Danvers resident, has been a realtor since 2006. He brings significant business and service experience to the real estate industry from his background as an entrepreneur in the Information Technology field. Prior to becoming a Realtor, he owned and operated a successful technology consulting firm that he sold in 1996. Norman also offers practical experience offering expertise in hands-on renovation skills and has bought, renovated and sold several properties throughout the North Shore.
“I enjoy educating people about how to best find what they need and want in a home,” says Norman. “It was an easy transition from the technology consulting field to the real estate industry. It’s all about solving puzzles, putting together all the right pieces to achieve an enjoyable and successful result.”
“Norman brings extensive experience and knowledge to our company particularly in the area of customer service, which is the essence of the real estate industry today,” says Jon Gray, president. “Customer service is all about developing trusting relationships and everything agents do focuses on helping people navigate their way through the process. Being able to work with clients to determine their priorities, to clearly set expectations and then manage the process and deliver superior results is ‘the’ work of real estate.”
“J Barrett has so much to offer to agents and to their clients,” adds Norman. “Their marketing strategy is geared to individual properties, which is so important to clients. Plus, they also provide excellent support to the agents. It’s a win-win situation for everyone.”
An active volunteer, Norman served on the Board of Directors for the Essex County Youth Soccer Association for many years and was a director and coach for the Topsfield Athletic association. He also is an active participant in athletic events raising funds and awareness for cancer and diabetes research and treatment. He will be participating in his 6th Pan-Mass Challenge for the Jimmy Fund and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and 1st North Shore Tour de Cure for the American Diabetes Association.
