Q&A session with: Tia Farmakidis

Why you love what you do?

I love real estate.  I am passionate about asset protection, real estate and development.

Where do you come up with your best ideas?

Running in my neighborhood as I assess each property’s needs.

What is your fondest industry memory?

My dad took me to bid meetings when I was young and let me clean up construction sites.  It may have also involved going for ice cream.  I’ve always loved it!

What is the proudest moment of your career?

Joining Welty.  It marries my entrepreneurial spirit, core work needs and offers the perfect amount of stress and reward.
