For Madison Kazes, 29, the real estate business is personal. “I am determined to find a way to help other people experience the stability and true feeling of ‘home’ that I missed out on as a child,” she says. Her parents, a hard-working Greek couple, instilled in Kazes a strong work ethic, though they could never afford to purchase a home during her childhood. Having moved 21 times before the age of 18, Kazes fixated on a dream to buy her own home, and she found her calling helping others do the same. “Everyone has a family doctor and a family lawyer. I want to be the family real estate agent,” she says. It is this idea, extending her long-term support for local families, that makes Kazes sought-after in her market.
