Alden Karotkin doesn’t work in residential sales. She lives, breathes and thrives in residential sales.
“Every morning I’m excited to go to the office and see what the day holds,” says Alden, the 2014 Top Producer of Virginia Cook, Realtors’ Fort Worth Office.
This enthusiasm translates to exceptional customer service. If customers call Alden at midnight, she will answer. If they need to meet at 7 a.m., she’ll be there. When she takes a listing, the home becomes like her own.
Alden’s dedication has ensured her ranking among Virginia Cook, Realtors Companywide Top 30 and Fort Worth Top 10 throughout her career. She also earned the Greater Fort Worth Association of Realtors’ President’s Award in 2012.
“Alden’s career is inspired by a genuine passion for the industry, her community and each client she serves,” says Virginia Cook, CEO of Virginia Cook, Realtors.
Alden is an involved member of GFWAR, where she has served on the board of directors and has been chairman of the Government Affairs Committee. She holds numerous credentials including the Certified Residential Specialist and Accredited Buyers Representative designations, and generously shares her talent as an interior designer.
“Whether a client is buying or selling, my intent is to use my expertise to not make it just a successful experience, but a fun, pleasant experience,” says Alden, who has lived in Fort Worth 30 years and is a member of the Woman's Board for Cook Children's Hospital and the Jewel Charity Organization.
“I want them to be as happy with their housing decisions as I am with my career,” says Alden. “Before I will write a contract on a home I ask, ‘Do you love it? Because if you don’t love it, I won’t sell it to you!’”
