Rosanne And Michael Currie Of The Currie Realty Group Work Hard On Behalf Of Clients Story by Matthew Auerbach • Photos by Julie Unger
The husband-and-wife team of Rosanne and Michael Currie of the Currie Realty Group have been successfully serving the western communities since 1999. Their dedication to creating and acquiring the best deals for their clients is their professional calling card.
The Curries are very good at what they do. Then again, they were also very good at selling soft-serve ice cream. “When Michael and I got married in 1977, we had purchased a Carvel ice cream store that was in my family,” Rosanne recalled. “For the first two years in business, we worked from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m., seven days a week. We wanted to build up the business and save enough money to purchase our first home.” Thankfully, their plan worked. “We purchased our first home in 1981 in Long Island, New York,” Michael said. “That is when my interest in real estate first began. I decided to take all kinds of real estate investment courses, and the rest is history. I have been licensed since 1983.” Soon after Michael got his license, Rosanne joined him as his assistant. That’s when she took an active role in the business. “I learned so much from him in reference to buying, selling, renting and negotiating,” she said. “I’ve always worked in sales, so I worked very well with people and was always a top salesperson.” The Curries eventually started a family. They have two children — a son, Dean, and a daughter, Jenna. Together, they would vacation in Pembroke Lakes. The South Florida lifestyle appealed to them, which is why they ended up here in Wellington. “I researched the State of Florida, coming down once a month to see where we were going to move the family,” Mi(Below) Rosanne, Michael, Dean and Jenna Currie at the Currie Realty Group office in Wellington.
chael recalled. “After lots of research, we settled in Wellington, since schools were very important to us.” Looking at different communities, they zeroed in on Coral Springs and the up-and-coming Wellington area. “I went to the schools, police and fire departments. I asked lots of questions and liked what I heard and saw,” Michael said of his research into Wellington. When Rosanne got her real estate license in 2001, the Currie Realty Group was born. They specialize in buying, selling, renting and property management throughout Palm Beach County, with most of their business in Wellington. The Curries credit their success to the consistent effort they put into their work. “We outwork all the other agents,” Rosanne said. “The lights are always on at Currie Realty. When you call us, we always answer our phones. We don’t just input your house on [the Multiple Listing Service]… We advertise it on our own web site, as well as on Realtor.com, Zillow and approximately another 150 other home sites. When we get a listing, we take it from listing to closing, never leaving your side.” Being partners both personally and professionally gives the Curries another edge over the competition. “Rosanne and I offer a husband-and-wife, family point of view, so the buyer and seller can make an educated decision when buying or selling a home,” Michael said. “We each bring something different to our team. Since women make most of the buying decisions in our business, Rosanne relates perfectly with all the buyers and sellers, and nobody does it better closing the deal.” While she focuses on closing the deal, he negotiates the contracts. “I am the numbers man, and Rosanne is the salesperson,” Michael said. “We have the winning combination.” For more information about the Currie Realty Group, call (561) 385-1111 or visit www.currierealtygroup.com. wellington the magazine | may 2017
