Athena Real Estate is delighted to announce that Stacie Carubba has been made a partner of the brokerage.
Stacie, whose business philosophy relentlessly focuses on delivering “results, not excuses,” has a reputation for going above and beyond to get the job done. She is a dynamic agent with a contemporary approach to real estate and marketing. Through the organizational systems Stacie has developed to run her business efficiently, Stacie manages her time to ensure her clients get the individualized attention they need and deserve.
Stacie grew up in Metairie and attended Mt. Carmel Academy then Louisiana State University where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Textiles, Apparel and Merchandising with a minor in Business Administration. Having garnered an admirable reputation as a realtor with Athena Real Estate since 2015, Stacie has remained a top producing agent in the city year after year.
“I’m a quintessential New Orleans person. I’ve lived here my whole life, and I know every bit of it inside and out. I love the quirks and the idiosyncrasies; I think that is what makes us special. I love the passion of the people here and just the resilience of the city.”
“Results, not Excuses”
While caring for her grandfather at the end of his life, Stacie learned about the contributions that he made as a band professor. Many of his students reached out and fondly shared his inspiring words, “Results, not excuses.” Stacie knew this was meant to be her tagline and it all clicked.
“It’s a very personal slogan, but it also sets the bar really high. I need to be accountable to my clients and give everything 110%. To this day, I truly believe that much of my success is due to Pappy’s virtue and influence.”
As such, Stacie has acquired and honed her skills to anticipate client needs and remain current on the latest market trends, statistics, and strategies. She uses her ability to manage expectations effectively and to act as a reliable sounding board for her clients.
Real Estate is a Lifestyle
With the support of her brokerage and her colleagues, coupled with her unstoppable “Results, not Excuses” drive, Stacie quickly rose to the status of mega-agent. She consistently closes multi-millions each year and has topped $10 million in sales volume for the past two years.
“I always say real estate is a lifestyle. You have to be in it 24/7. It’s way more than a job for me; it’s definitely my passion. Even though it’s work, it lets me have a creative outlet, it brings me joy, and it makes me feel fulfilled. Once I started building relationships with my clients, I just felt alive and happy. I feel like I’ve finally found my calling.”
Stacie is an alumna of Delta Gamma Fraternity and previously held a leadership position within the organization for many years. She is the Vice President of the Synergy chapter of the Business Network International and she currently volunteers with the Junior League of New Orleans, Immune Deficiency Foundation, and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
As a result of her personal success and public contributions, Stacie was inducted into the Marquis Who’s Who Biographical Registry in November 2020. In a whirlwind finale to 2020, Stacie also achieved her associate broker status in December one week before her recent nuptials on New Year’s Eve.
Mentoring Future Partners
Athena prides itself on mentoring new agents within the brokerage through scheduled lunches, meetings, and phone calls in an effort to help new agents reach their full potential. Stacie has taken on the role of mentoring new agents, and she is building a new team within the brokerage.
“Athena lets you keep more money in your pocket and be yourself. Athena allows their agents to have more autonomy and carve out their own niche within the community rather than being put into a little corporate box.”
The opportunity to participate in equity with the firm is unique to Athena. Stacie recalls that “the second that they rolled out the program, I said, ‘I’m going to be the first person to do that.” She is the first, but won’t be the last. Now that she owns a stake in the brokerage, Stacie knows the real meaning behind delivering results, not excuses.
