With a real estate background enhanced by experience in the computer technology, marketing and consulting fields, Liana brings an enviable skill set to the Somerset Hills marketplace. She joined Turpin as a referral associate in 2014, becoming a full-time agent in 2016. Known for providing creative, highly-focused and intuitive service to all her clients, Liana is an integral part of the Far Hills sales team.
The hallmark of Liana’s professional style is the genuine enjoyment she gets from meeting people and listening attentively to their wants and needs. “Selling or buying a home can be one of the most stressful times in a person’s life and it is my job to make each client comfortable with the process,” Liana explains. “Each customer is different and has unique tastes or wants, and I find it enjoyable to treat each customer individually and to take the time to learn what they really want. The ever-changing market and inventory is also exciting, it is an aspect of the job that keeps you on your toes and always learning.” Sensitive to the emotions that come with a home purchase or sale, she finds it rewarding to find a client their dream home or be a positive force for those going through the emotional process of selling a home full of memories.
Before entering the real estate field, Liana held several key roles at AT&T including computer programmer/analyst, systems designer, systems design consultant and marketing manager. These positions combine with her interest in architecture and interior design, making her a multi-faceted professional. She and her husband helped design and consult during the building process of two of their own homes, experiences that have given her an interest in new construction as well as a great deal of firsthand knowledge about local builders and architects.
A lifelong New Jersey resident, Liana has lived in Morris, Warren and Somerset Counties. Currently a resident of Bedminster, her personal knowledge of the surrounding towns is a significant advantage to clients who are relocating to this part of the state. She still marvels at the beautiful rolling hills and farmland found in the area, appreciating the region’s diverse scenery.
Giving back to the community is important to Liana, who has been active with numerous non-profit groups including serving on the Board of Directors for the Alzheimer’s Association Greater New Jersey Chapter and The Embrace Kids Foundation, which supports families of children with cancer and other serious blood disorders. She also serves as Co-Chair of the Legendary Links Golf Raffle Committee for Alzheimer’s New Jersey, an event that has raised close to $1 million over the years. Other causes she has volunteered with are the United Way and Job Corps as a career counselor for women re-entering the job market.
An avid golfer, Liana is a Founding Member of Hamilton Farm Golf Club in Gladstone and also serves on the Handicap Committee. She is a Team Captain for Hamilton Farm WMGA Team and holds several Club Championship titles there. She is also a member of the Garden State Women’s Golf Association and The Women’s Metropolitan Golf Association. Additionally, she is an International Course Rater for Golfweek magazine. This has allowed her to play at some of the most highly-acclaimed golf courses in the world while meeting golf course designers and continuing to learn about golf course architecture.
Married with a son and a daughter and their spouses, Liana enjoys outdoor activities, cooking, the arts and music, reading and painting in oils and watercolors. She travels extensively, and favorite recent trips include South Africa and Australia.
Liana’s decision to join Turpin was informed by her own experience as a home buyer, when she was impressed by the entire company’s dedication and depth of knowledge during her move to Bedminster.
