CALCAGNI REAL ESTATE VICE PRESIDENT OF SALES OBTAINS BROKER’S LICENSE
Gina Shumilla Has Obtained Broker’s License from the State of Connecticut
September 9, 2021—Cheshire, CT—President and Broker of Calcagni Real Estate, Antonio Liguori has announced Vice President of Sales, Gina Shumilla has obtained her Real Estate Broker license from the State of Connecticut.
For over 50 years, Calcagni Real Estate has been Connecticut’s largest independently owned and operated real estate company, specializing in residential, commercial and new construction real estate transactions. Shumilla, a licensed Realtor, first joined Calcagni in 2010 and since 2013 has held the role of vice president of sales for the company’s Cheshire office. In 2018, Shumilla became the vice president of the company’s Stratford office, and in 2021, began overseeing its North Haven office.
“For over a decade, Gina has represented the best that Calcagni has to offer. Her professionalism, thoughtfulness, and willingness to go above and beyond for our clients and our agents is an inspiration and a great source of pride for our company. We’re thrilled that she has obtained her Broker’s License; this is just another example of Gina’s tireless dedication to real estate, and to the people throughout Connecticut that Calcagni Real Estate serves.”
The State of Connecticut requires licensed Realtors to meet stringent guidelines in order to obtain a Real Estate Broker License. With at least two years active experience, licensed Realtors must complete 60 hours of classroom course in Real Estate Principles and Practices, 15 hours of classroom course in Real Estate Brokerage Principles and Practices, 15 hours classroom course in Legal Compliance and at least 20 real estate transactions in the previous five years. Since she has not been actively selling real estate in her role as Vice President of Sales, Shumilla also completed a 30-hour property management course.
“My current role as vice president of sales has allowed me to lead the most talented, hard-working, and caring real estate agents, and we have a deep mutual respect for the work that we do to help others realize their dreams of homeownership. I wanted the highest level of education in real estate so I can be the most effective leader possible to our agents—and I want to have the best tools available to me to continue to recruit the kind of talent synonymous with Calcagni Real Estate.”
Liguori agrees. “Calcagni has always been deeply committed to supporting the talented leaders and agents who work here. Whether it’s the support staff that’s available to them seven days a week, the in-house marketing team that helps them sell their listings, or championing higher education and recognizing their achievements, we continue to set the bar for unparalleled support and success, from our agents to our leadership.”
That level of support, coupled with Calcagni’s unique company culture, has fostered Shumilla’s dedication to her profession. “The people who work at this company are the best in the industry, both professionally and personally. I not only love working with all of them, but I consider them family.”
