“I am selfless and will always put my clients’ needs and interests before my own,” Realtor® Carina Galati said. “I go the extra mile for my clients. And I don’t overlook the details and have a fresh perspective from my corporate background that gives me a sharp edge.”
Carina has spent the last several years working in the finance and accounting industries as a consultant and manager after graduating magna cum laude from Florida State University with a Bachelor of Science in Finance and Marketing
Promoted early to management at PwC before the typical four-year requirement, Carina worked as a manager for PwC’s Risk Mitigation and Controls team to support the firm’s controller. She worked with various organizational stakeholders to develop best practices around processes to ensure financial statements were presented accurately. Carina also worked for Grant Thornton in Risk Advisory Services, serving multiple industries like insurance, banking, and healthcare to provide risk consulting and process enhancements related to financial reporting.
She transitioned into real estate to continue to help others, as she’s always had a passion for serving people and making a difference. Carina has always enjoyed working with people and providing consulting services.
“I am excited to use those same skills and consult people when selling and buying homes,” said Carina. “Real estate is a customer-centric industry providing an opportunity to think outside the box, where no two transactions are alike. I am eager to build lifelong relationships with my clients and be that trusted advisor to make their experience seamless.”
Carina’s previous roles taught her to be organized and when to pivot and adapt in different situations. She has developed her communication skills by working with various stakeholders and customers. Her experience with diverse finance business processes strengthened her critical thinking skills.
“Working as a consultant and risk mitigation manager serves me well when working with clients, as I have had experience identifying the needs and information required to achieve the customer’s desired outcome,” she said. “I am selfless, hardworking, motivated, personable, and honest.”
