Tammy Mazzocco

Tammy Mazzocco is an example of the great American dream where a person can accomplish whatever one sets out to do in life if the right knowledge and work ethic are applied. Tammy started in the real estate business in the early nineties as a secretary in a commercial real estate firm. She next was a manager for a condominium development for seven years.

In 1995 she got her real estate license because she saw the potential, yet she still worked in the background as a licensed assistant. She saw how successful real estate brokers worked with their office and people, and in 1999 she went full-time in the real estate business.

The real estate market Northern and Central Ohio in 2016 was a good market because there were lots of jobs available, says Homes.com. People were doing well, and lots of houses were being sold because the people had money and the urge to buy them. Near the end of the year, about the middle of November, the market began to slack off a bit, mainly due to a housing shortage. There were still people looking for houses.

For Tammy Mazzocco, she didn’t worry too much about that because by now she had figured out that the real estate business is a people business. When you find solutions to the people problems, the rest takes care of itself. It goes to say that if you find a family a good house that can solve a lot of the people problems.

Tammy views herself as a facilitator. She facilitates finding security for families by selling them a home. Admittedly, she says she is a little on the shy side, but she opens up the conversation and when everyone gets to talking she listens. Tammy’s customers like to say that her personal and helpful manner were one of the main reasons that they did business with her.

Rescued Victims Recognize their Dream of Being able to Graduate High School

Gina DeJesus and Amanda Berry went through an ordeal that many cannot fathom. The two were kidnapped when they were teenagers and held in the same home together for 10 years before they were found and rescued. Gina was taken when she was 14-years-old and still in middle school. Amanda was almost 17-years-old and still in high school. Those girls lost major parts of their lives that many people take for granite, including graduating high school.

Gina and Amanda finally got to recognize their dream of being high school graduates this year. The two donned white caps and gowns and were given diplomas by John Marshall High School in their hometown of Cleveland. Before being taken, Amanda had dreamed of finishing high school and moving on to attend college. Now she finally can achieve that goal. The two were proud to accept their honorary diplomas as the crowd cheered them on.

Gina and Amanda have co-authored a book together that has become a New York Times Best Seller about their 10 year ordeal states publisher Kevin Seawright of Cleveland. The book, “Hope: A Memoir of Survival in Cleveland”, has stayed on the best-seller list since it came out last month.
