A Day With … Erica Guja
Current Status: Real Estate Salesperson, CBR (Certified Buyer Representative) and Silver Circle of Achievement
Name Your North Fork Happy Place: My favorite way to explore the North Fork is through exercise. My happy place is out running my favorite route, which is heading East on New Suffolk Road, and running up Grathwohl Road on a beautiful sunny day. Running over the many little bridges over the bay, and alongside the water, just makes me want to throw my arms up and tell the North Fork how truly beautiful it is!
Phrase You Hear Most in Real Estate: Location, Location, Location!
Greatest Work Achievement: On paper it would be “Silver Circle of Achievement 2017, 2018,” a status award for extraordinary production and professional standards at Daniel Gale Sotheby’s. However, the “North Fork Rookie Of The Year” award I received my first year in real estate, 2016, will always hold a special place in my heart! I think I am most proud of that one because it laid the foundation to my current success.
Dream Vacation: Greek Islands, please!!
Real Life Hero: I have the utmost respect for our first responders — our police officers, firefighters, EMT, military, vets, and all those who risk their lives to serve and protect us on a daily basis. They’re the real heroes!
Your Fantasy Super Power: It would have to be invisibility.
Your Second Act Or Are You In It: I’m in it to win it!
Current Favorite Style Home – Modern, Traditional, Farmhouse, etc.: Modern Farmhouse. I am infatuated with pairing rustic farmhouse charm with a fresh, sleek, modern style. Some of the features in a home that I love combining are neutral grey/off white colored walls, black finishes and decor, decorative tiling in bathrooms, wood floors, and wood finishes.
Greatest Extravagance: The one thing I don’t hold back on in life is — traveling! My life motto is “traveling is the only thing you buy that makes you richer”. I am forever thankful that my profession allows me the luxury of making my own schedule because I am able to allot time to travel, something I couldn’t live without! One of my most recent trips was a 2 week vacation with my fiancé to Prague, Rome, Amalfi Coast (Positano, Capri), Venice, and Milan. Before that I went to Thailand with my two college housemates for a full month and traveled to Bangkok, Pai, Chang Mai, Koh Phi Phi, and Krabi. Where to next?
Favorite North Fork Dinner Spot: American Beech
Favorite Movie: White Christmas. Watch it every year!
Favorite Season: Summer of course! I am an outdoors gal for sure so I enjoy all the outside activities, being able to run and bike in the warm weather, barbecues with friends and family, and everything else that comes with the sunshine.
