Leading With Empathy

Dina Miller, 28, has a resource in her toolbox when it comes to relating to her millennial clients: empathy. She knows the homebuying process can be nerve-wracking for her clients, so she leans into education and her own experience. Her philosophy is that people should feel good about their purchase, whether that means jumping right into the market or taking a wait-and-see approach.

Her fortitude comes from her longtime love of golf, she says. “I’ve had a couple of clients I’ve worked with for two years,” she says. “Always have the patience to stand with [clients]. You’ll benefit in the long-term.”

Miller is also an avid tennis player, most recently in paddle tennis, a team sport. So, when it comes to real estate, it feels natural to her to credit her teammates with her success. “You can’t do it by yourself. I thank everyone on the team,” she says.

Her Compass squad, including partner Hans Wydler, brings that team spirit to helping sellers by alleviating a key stressor: prepping the home for sale. ”The last thing [sellers] want to do is get estimates from contractors and coordinate,” Miller says. Thanks to Wydler’s relationships with contractors and handymen, Miller can obtain job quotes and coordinate the work for them—which likely is one of the reasons 65% of her business comes from referrals. It’s important to her that “every dollar the [seller] spends should have a 2X return.”
