Ameron Realty’s Halina Sledz Brings A Unique Background To Real Estate Clients
By Matthew Auerbach
The allure of all things equestrian is what makes Halina Sledz, a broker for Ameron Realty, feel so at home in her adopted hometown of Wellington, a community world-renowned for its equestrian facilities and championship competitions. “I was born, raised and educated in Europe,” Sledz said. “During my university studies in Poland for my master’s degree in civil engineering, an international horse jumping show was held annually at our university stadium. The excitement of preparing for my final exams coincided with the excitement of that competition.” Balancing her scholastic responsibilities with her love of horses was not a problem for Sledz. “My dorm was located next to the university stadium, so I could either take a break from studying and go down to the stadium, or I could watch the horse competition from my dorm window while I was hitting the books,” she recalled. “Over the years, that closeness to the equestrian community allowed me to meet horse owners, breeders and top international equestrian riders of the day.” After marrying and starting a family, Sledz moved to Wellington, where she once again became immersed in the equestrian world. “With my husband being an engineer as well, together we designed and built several spec houses in Wellington and in the western communities of Palm Beach County,” she said. “During the building process, I was involved in hiring and managing several subcontractors. That led me to selling real estate full time. My experience in property construction allows me to give good advice to potential
clients on any issues with property they may be interested in.” Sledz specializes in residential waterfront properties on the island of Palm Beach, as well as selling equestrian properties in the Wellington and the western communities. “If a Palm Beacher desires to own a farm in Wellington, or a Wellingtonian likes to own an oceanfront property, I have that expertise and can assist them from start to finish,” she said. “I always try to fulfill the expectation of any potential buyer. I have world-wide contacts and speak several languages, which allows me to easily communicate with clients all over the world. While I have experience in selling upscale, luxury properties, I also work with first-time home buyers and military veterans.” Sledz is also knowledgeable on investments in commercial properties and sells them, as well. No matter what transaction she is brokering, her top priority is to her clients.
“I am always on the lookout for the next great opportunity for my clients,” she said. “I attend to my clients’ needs in a diligent and conscientious way. I am very thoughtful of their time, and I work hard to find the right properties that will be of their interest.” Many of those properties are right here in Wellington, a destination Sledz believes is a perfect place to put down roots. “Having lived in Wellington for many years, I have witnessed firsthand its beauty, peacefulness, yet steady growth,” she said. “What makes the Wellington area special is the aeronautical subdivision, the Aero Club, and world-class equestrian facilities and venues. This makes Wellington a comfortable place to live, with major retail stores, various types of restaurants, excellent public schools and two hospitals.” To contact Halina Sledz of Ameron Realty, call (561) 596-9727 or e-mail ameron1@ bellsouth.net. wellington the magazine | august 2017 57
