The company's blog launches a new feature that will allow you to get acquainted with our team members even better. Our editor Sylvana Vassileva will try to immerse you in the working week of Unique Estates’ consultants.
The first person from the team who shares her day with us is Evelina Kostakeva. Due to her high performance over the years and her loyalty to the company, Evelina has recently been promoted to the position of Team Manager. She would rely on skilled professionals like Pepa Petrova, Kalina Boyadjieva, Stanislava Lefterova, Krassimir Djambazov, and some new members of the company like Simona Pchelarova, Ioanna Kipcheva and Silveser Uzunov.
Those who know Evelina well are aware that she likes challenges, juggles skillfully with a few different cases at the same time, and doesn’t fear complicated situations. With a smile on her face, she manages to sort out the most intricate cases and finally reach the desired results. In this manner of working, for several consecutive years, Evelina has managed to win the "Broker with the largest number of deals" Award, as well as many other recognitions for her professional achievements.
She likes to conquer peaks in life, literally and metaphorically. She feels good when her day is dynamic and challenging. To walk into her shoes from Monday morning till the end of the week, you should be willing to change the high heels with sneakers at least a few times a day. Also to skip your lunch in the name of having satisfied customers and look really calm, even in the most complicated situations. That is Evelina Kostakeva!
We start the day at high speed - jogging in the park early in the morning. For Eva, this is the only daily ritual she really insists on. The fresh air and the physical activities give her a great start of the day. The first coffee she takes already changed, with her high heels on. This is how she heads to the office.
Monday is an organizational day for her. Its the time when she plans the whole week, deals with the most urgent tasks and usually her phone doesn’t stop ringing. Then is also her meeting with the team when she assigns different tasks and discusses the priority cases with her colleagues.
Tuesday begins with the traditional weekly meeting of the entire team of Unique Estates. It is a very important one as it is then when people from the team present the new offers, comment on various working cases and interesting things that are ahead of the company. There the different teams plan their work together, seek co-operation or advice, think and act like a cohesive team.
From Wednesday to Friday, Eva tries to pay more attention to each of her clients. It's time for meetings, searching for specific estates, closing deals and opening new ones. Often her appointments deprive her from having lunch, but when she can afford a break, she goes to a place where she can enjoy something delicious and healthy.
On the last day of the week, Eva tries to slow down a little. Friday is usually quieter, planned for completing some tasks, a little administrative work in the office and lunch with colleagues or clients. Then, even just roughly, she plans her schedule for the next week.
Regardless of her agenda, things she has planned may always change, often at the very last moment. Eva is very flexible and tries to teach her new colleagues to be more adaptable. Her assistant, Ioanna Kipcheva, follows her all the time. With strong motivation and dedication, she shows willingness to learn and quickly goes deeper into the specifics of the profession. Eva performs as a great manager. She really encourages and motivates people around her to never give up, to look for the right approach, and move forward with a smile on. She says that in time she has learned to delegate more rights to new people from the team. This helps them get into the working process faster and saves her time and energy for other cases.
It’s the end of the working week – the time Eva always devotes to her family. They usually enjoy their long walks in the mountains or spend it on traveling.
We thank Evelina for sharing her day with us. We wish her a great weekend!
