About me

Inspirational Leadership

As Regional Vice President of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in southeast Wisconsin and non competing Managing Broker of the Mequon office, I am proud to partner with the finest real estate agents. I pride myself on delivering inspirational leadership; throughout my career I have recognized the difference between doing an average job and doing an excellent job. I am well versed in technology, marketing and sales, and I am fortunate to have cutting-edge business resources available.

Real estate is a business that is constantly changing; my passion for the industry and market knowledge drives me to stay at the cusp of industry trends and innovation.
I am committed to life-long learning and motivating those who have chosen real estate as their career. I enjoy coaching, training and mentoring, from the newest rookie to the well-seasoned agent. With a well-trained staff and excellent leadership support, we are a passionate team that enjoys what we do every day.

Never Stop Learning

In 1986 I began my career in real estate. I have earned designations including ABR, CRB, CRS, GRI and e-Pro500, which I put to use in staying abreast of every aspect of sales. I am a 2nd generation Realtor®, I have been a top agent, assistant manager, manager, broker/owner of a Coldwell Banker franchise, director of education and in 2002, I was honored with the opportunity to become Regional Vice President of the Milwaukee region. My career has always been with Coldwell Banker, I believe in their core values, unmatched tools, resources and their outstanding brand benefits. I understand the most important consideration in real estate is meeting our customer and clients needs. Todays buyers and sellers expect Truly Remarkable Service in every aspect of the real estate transaction. Across town or across the country Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage has the best local expertise, national presence and global connections to meet your real estate needs.

Life Lessons & Inspiration

It is my belief that all facets of life affect what you are able to accomplish. As a former professional fiber artist, I pride myself on my creative talents and thinking. I use creativity to encourage agents across the region to approach their business in an imaginative and resourceful way. I also believe that being a leader at work is closely tied with being a leader within your community. I have chosen to give back throughout my real estate career through local charitable organizations like the Ronald McDonald House of southeastern Wisconsin, Habitat for Humanity ,The American Diabetes Association of southeast Wisconsin and Coldwell Banker Charitable Foundation. The lessons I have learned while volunteering have translated into how I manage my office and the Wisconsin region. My personal referrals are a testament to my commitment.

My personal referrals are a testament to my commitment

Here is what a couple of my agents have to say:

Judy Hearst has been my Manager and Regional Vice President since I started my Real Estate business almost 4 years ago. She has provided me with the tools and training to build my business consistently each year in an extremely difficult real estate market. Judy’s creative leadership and management skills reflect the high level of training that is provided by Coldwell Banker, one of the leading and most recognized global real estate brands. Judy is hands on with her agents and is an exceptional coach and mentor who is never too busy to listen, brainstorm or advice. I have worked with many managers in my career and none can “hold a candle” to Judy Hearst! (Shelley Daily)

As a manager and Regional Vice President, Judy has excellent knowledge of the market and is able to share her wealth of knowledge with all of us at the Mequon office. Judy is always available to all of the agents; if she is not in the office you can always get in touch with her by phone or e-mail and expect a fast response. She is very tech savvy, and while I am not, she is a great resource. (Mary Bernbrock)

 We just can't thank you enough for the wonderful educational opportunities we have enjoyed since joining Coldwell Banker.
Last week Tom and I attended the Buffini seminar in Chicago, what a practical, logical, smart way to build a referral system to grow our business. Today we attended the Power Pricing Seminar in Milwaukee and learned a whole new way of thinking about our role as real estate brokers. The ideas of acting as an educator and negotiator were two take-aways from the morning. Getting into a v formation and flying with the Coldwell team has been a wise decision for the KT Team. Not to mention the numerous times we have picked Tom Sykoras brain for his perspective on a difficult transaction detail. Seriously, THANK YOU.
