48 August 2018 RISMedia's REAL ESTATE Her knowledge of technology has since spilled over into her love of smart homes. As products like Nest and Amazon's Echo become more perva- sive in the average U.S. household, smart home products are not just for the tech-savvy consumer anymore. Here, Piontek discusses newly available products and what she be- lieves will be the next big tech trend in real estate, among many other things. What first drew you to the real estate industry? After graduating from college, I packed my little car and got a job in New York City. I worked for an advertising firm where I learned, first- hand, the effect of mar- keting and advertising on a large scale. I loved the city, and still do, but having my first child caused me to re-examine what was important. The idea of creating a space that I can truly make my own was a dream. I wanted to create a place where laughter is often heard, memories are made and adventures are expe- rienced. The birth of my first child delivered with it the realization of the true power of home. We moved back to Virginia and I began the search for a career that was challenging yet ful- filling. Real estate was a perfect mar- riage of my creative background and the desire to help people find this wondrous place called home. Why did you choose Coldwell Banker? As a new agent, I was in search of a firm with a great reputation and brand recognition. I also wanted a brand that offered the tools and re- sources to build a solid foundation. I found that at Coldwell Banker Elite. While I started my career with the Coldwell Banker brand, I took time off when my second child was born. Then, I accepted a leader- ship opportunity at another firm for Industry Innovators: A ngel Piontek, associate broker and vice president of Marketing at Coldwell Banker Elite, got her start after college as an advertising professional in New York City. It's this foundation that's led her to utilize technology and design to better serve her clients in any way possible. Angel Piontek on the Future of Real Estate Technology by Jameson Doris
