Sandra Ierardi: A Fulfilling Life

Sandra Ierardi: A Fulfilling Life

Written by Crystal Ward Kent

When asked to describe 2019, Sandra Ierardi has one word, “Phenomenal.” Ierardi, a realtor with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices/Verani Realty of Amherst, New Hampshire, feels that she achieved many of the goals that she set for herself. Looking back, she feels both grateful for the year’s successes and energized for 2020. 

“I set some major goals for 2019, including wanting to do more for charitable causes,” she says. “I was thrilled to host a classic car show open house benefit at one of my luxury listings. The car entries, cellists and champagne toasts set the stage for a terrific event, which was complimented by the stunning foliage surrounding the estate. We had a stellar turnout and raised more than $1,500 for Veterans’ Count, a cause I’m passionate about. Creatively, this was made possible through the graciousness of the seller, a veteran who had an antique car collection; he was able to honor servicemen and women through his hobby. The open house was very unique. I was so pleased that so many people enjoyed it and supported the charity.”

Ierardi also worked hard in 2019 to expand more of her business into the global luxury market. She wanted to broaden her services so that she could reach all levels of clients. “I want to be able to meet all client needs,” she says. “Whether it’s first-time home buyers, those looking for a luxury home or a second home, or clients looking to downsize or right-size. I think it’s important to be able to meet people’s needs at different stages of their life.”

Ierardi also feels that her business formula is working, based on feedback she has gotten from clients. “They like the fact that I’m flexible and always available, and they know that I’m highly motivated to help them achieve their goals. I’m gratified to get a lot of repeat business and referrals. Those are the highest compliments that you can get.”

Looking towards 2020, she has even loftier goals. “I’ve already started expanding my business into the global real estate market,” she says. “Next year, I plan to do more of that. It really opens up opportunities for both buyers and sellers if you can service national and international listings.  I’ve partnered with organizations that help you develop the international side of your business and they have been a big help. I also want to continue to grow my local business and form partnerships with like-minded individuals. Of course, supporting charities that matter to me is always part of the plan.”

Ierardi admits that she might be a workaholic, but says it doesn’t feel that way. “I really love what I do,” she laughs. “To me, my work is a joy. I love everything about real estate—helping people with their housing needs is challenging, exciting and rewarding. I love meeting people and working with people. I’ve made wonderful lifelong friends from my relationships with clients and people that I work with. My work doesn’t feel like work at all—it’s very fulfilling on every level.”

As 2019 comes to a close, Ierardi feels a great sense of satisfaction. “You never know what a year is going to bring, but I’ve always felt that if you work hard, you will see results and this year proved that to be true.”
