aPRiL/MaY 2014 Macon Magazine i 87 ADVERTISING | WOMEN IN BUSINESS Anna Roberts Rivoli Realty 4525 Forsyth Rd. | Macon, GA 31210 | 478.477.6528 There are not many quiet days in the office of one on Middle Georgia's leading residential real estate brokers, Anna Roberts, Broker and Owner of Rivoli Realty. Anna Roberts is a busy woman as she balances family, church, friends, service to the Georgia Association of Realtors and being the owner of a real estate firm. HOW DID ANNA DECIDE TO PURSUE THIS CAREER? Having the success she has enjoyed as a top real estate broker was one of Anna's dreams. She was always interested in real estate. . Directly after graduating from Macon State, she went to work for the Bibb County Board of Education. With her strong work ethic and great people skills, she was a success there as an assistant to one of the Superintendents of Elementary and the Superintendent. Even though she loved the Board of Education, her interest in real estate never left. In 1987 she began to discuss the idea with her husband Robbie. After many discussions and convincing by Anna, they agreed she could try it for six months. If she had not sold anything by the end of the trial period, she would return to a job with a salary and benefits. What she did that first six months and first year was beyond any expectation. Not only did she close a sale in the trial period of six months, she closed in excess of One Million Dollars in real estate sales in the first seven months she had her real estate license. WHAT ARE HER GREATEST SUCCESSES WTIH RIVOLI REALTY? Anna personally listed and sold in excess of $5,000.000 of real estate in 2013. She has been a Million Dollar Club/Circle of Excellence member every year since entering the real estate business in 1987. She has been the top producer in Macon, more than once and is consistently in the top five producers year after year, producing a multi million dollar sales record every year in the process. She has received the Eagle, Phoenix, Silver and Crystal Awards from the Middle Georgia Association of Realtors, all awards for real estate sales volume in successive years without missing a year. WHAT DOES SHE ENJOY MOST ABOUT BEING A REALTOR? In all of her activity, Anna believes that the most rewarding thing is dealing with people. She says of her business, "This is a people business more than a property business. The trust and confidence that people have in me as their Realtor is incredibly rewarding and, at the end of the day, it is about the personal relationships." As Anna Roberts pursued excellence in all areas of her life, there won't be many quiet days in her office at Rivoli Realty in the future, either.
