I’m Bess Assimacopoulos-Markou, Real Estate Sales Representative Since 1985. I am of Greek heritage and proud of it! The land and cradle of civilization. When I started real estate sales back in the day there was only one fax to share with all the salespeople and one computer in our office that would provide us with the daily hot sheet at noon everyday!
I owe it all to my mentor, my Father Gregory Assimacopoulos. His guidance and perfection in ethical conduct was the best advice anyone could have shared with me. My Father’s knowledge, negotiating skills and determination to survive in what was a very challenging and at the same time rewarding career.
My hero, my Mother Kalliroe, or better know as, Kally. The matriarch of our family. She was a very intelligent woman. She radiated with class. A strong spiritual person with a great compassion for others. A wonderful educator. A natural when it came to sharing and expressing her thoughts. Religion, politics philosophy, ancient Greek history and mythology were of her many passions. She had high expectations for herself those around her. She loved cooking for family gatherings and made the best almond cookies! A woman of great etiquette.
I’ve been married to my husband John Markou since 1993 and our claim to fame is our wonderful son, Gregory!
Covid-19 has completely transformed our day to day lives, with the real estate market being no different. Buyers now need masks and gloves to view a home, and much of the process has gone remote.
