This week, our 5 for Friday features Ava Terry, Managing Director with Sperry Van Ness/AVAT Realty, LLC based out of Huntsville, AL.

1. What is your geographic market and product specialty?
Our market is Northern Alabama, with a focus on the Huntsville area. As the broker of record for our company, I seldom work on projects alone. I partner with Advisors as a primary training tool. My product specialty is retail leasing and land, but our brokerage has specialists in multifamily, property management and STNL properties. Of course, with the STNL properties, they could be located anywhere in the US, but again, particularly the South.

2. What’s your latest best practice tip that you can share?
I would recommend specializing in a specific property type. Sometimes we think we can do it all, but in this business, you cannot. If you are not an expert in your field you will not be taken seriously, and people expect SVN Advisors to be experts.

3. What’s been the biggest change over on how you run your business in the past decade?
I would have to say the smart phone. It has decentralized the office. We can perform just about any task on the fly.

4. What business book do you like to recommend to your colleagues?
What Every Real Estate Investor Needs To Know About Cash Flow” by Frank Gallinelli

5. What’s a fun fact that not everyone knows about you?
I’ve moved from Harley’s to Porsche’s in the past few years and I will be tracking my Porsche for the first time this spring.

 1. What is your geographic market and product specialty?

North Alabama is my geographic area and I live in Huntsville.  I specialize in sales and leasing of office and retail properties with a special emphasis in STNL deals.

2.  What’s your latest best practice tip that you can share?

Be available.  Answer the phone when possible and if you can’t, call them back immediately.  People tell me all the time, I can’t believe I actually got in touch with someone.  Prompt and professional customer service is so important.

3. What’s been the biggest change over on how you run your business in the past decade?

Social Media – you have to keep up with the latest technology and use it to your advantage to reach the largest number of people.  However, some still want the old fashioned personal touch.  You have to know your customer.

4. What business book do you like to recommend to your colleagues?

There’s No Such Thing as “Business” Ethics by John Maxwell.  Actually anything by John Maxwell is wonderful.

5. What’s a fun fact that not everyone knows about you?

I was the top female shooter at my local citizen’s police academy.
