Daughters follow mother into real estate business
SFGate.com recently published a story about the mother/daughter/daughter team of Intero’s Pat Kalish, Jane Kalish and Judy Kalish Blond.
The team spoke to the reporter at Intero’s Menlo Park office, where both daughters said they never intended to follow their mother’s career path, the report said. Pat has been in the business for more than 30 years, the article said, and now mostly sells homes in Palo Alto, Menlo Park and Los Alto. Jane says helping her mother in the real estate business when she was younger made her move into the industry easier because she knew many agents, the story said.
“I was born into a good reputation,” she told the reporter. “That’s quite a bonus.”
According to the article, the three work together to make sure the needs of their clients are met, but they also want to ensure that each of the women can “sustain herself independently.”
The article also discusses the extra effort the Kalishes bring to the job. For instance, the article says Pat bought backyard toys for the son of one of her clients after the family bought a new home. The three also deliver wine and plants during the holidays, the article said.
“We try to make personal contact with all of our clients at least once a year,” Pat Kalish said in the article. “I’ll stop in and say hi or go out for coffee.”
