Since joining ERA Real Estate, Yannaccone has helped move the organization forward with her laser focus on growth and innovation. She was instrumental in creating an enhanced service model that has increased broker satisfaction with the ERA brand, and she has fostered an internal culture of transparency, collaboration, execution and accountability. With a focus on franchisee engagement, satisfaction and growth, Yannaccone has overseen the addition of some newly affiliated companies, as well as several strategic mergers and acquisitions for existing ERA brokers. It Takes a Village Throughout her entire career, Yannaconne says, she’s recognized the importance of a team. “That’s when I saw my career take off—when I realized I needed a team in my outside life as much as in my work life,” she says. Yannaconne is the mom of 5-year-old Samantha. Managing Samantha’s life, she says, “takes a village. She’s in kindergarten now, and we’ve got her schedule well managed.” From help from her husband, Jeff, to school pickup help from Grandma and a little neighborly assistance, she says, their arrangement is “fluid and collaborative.” When she has downtime, it’s typically spent “reading a book with my daughter, making pizzas at home with my husband, running and taking golf lessons because my daughter is taking them.”
