My experience as a real estate broker in Durham dates from 1986 and includes tenures at two other successful firms. No one approaches Tracey's level of excellence in experience, knowledge, and absolute support. A few years ago she proposed that we "marry" Durham (we were already engaged) and that's exactly what we did!

Tracey is the real deal. She is always there for her agents -- those just starting out and those who have been at it for years and years. Training for work, life and health is what makes her stand out from the crowd. Tracey holds herself to high standards and it is reflected in all that she does. She is always available to help with a challenge, to give support and celebrate successes. One of the best "bosses" I have ever had.

AMAZING... doesn't seem to quite encompass all that Tracey Goetz, truly is! Tracey is easily one of the kindest people you could ever be fortunate enough to meet. Smart, funny, and energetic... she desires to help those around her achieve their greatest potential not just in real estate, but in life, and she does it unselfishly. Her wealth of knowledge along with her compassion for those around her make her an excellent Broker-In-Charge and a pleasure to work with.

Tracey did an excellent job of getting the team to emphasize good customer service and attention to buyer's interest. She also assisted when needed with problems and difficulties that the agent or contractor needed help on.

I couldn’t ask for a better broker in charge and mentor than Tracey! She’s always looking out for what’s best for me and my business. She’s been a huge asset in my real estate career.

Tracey's kindness knows no limits. She is a pleasure to work with and in her commitment to you, seems never to take a moment for herself. Her energy and enthusiasm are infectious and her knowledge of local markets seemingly endless.

As I reflect back on the many years I have known Tracy, it is difficult to condense my thoughts to a mere paragraph because there is so very much I would like to say about her passionate energy, her ability to inspire others and her commitment to those who work for her and with her every day . An incredible teacher and leader, Tracey, consistently provides a robust learning environment, inspiring those around her to reach new heights. Through our years of friendship as well as working together, I revere those things in Tracey that are often so difficult to find in today's fast-paced world...empathy, patience, and yes, love....for what she does, for who she is and how she inspires...
thank you.

Tracey is, in a word, excellent! She is a wonderful motivator, a fierce advocate, an unparalleled source of information about the full scope of real estate and about life. Above all, she is a great mentor and team leader who knows just when to give you a little nudge that will keep you on track, moving towards achieving your goals. And, being around her is a joy!

I love having Tracey as our manager. She's enthusiastic, inspirational and devoted to our success. Tracey is like a coach- she's there to help us hone our skills and be the best agents we can be. I always feel like I can call on Tracey to help me troubleshoot situations or create solutions for my clients when needed. She knows real estate very, very well and knows how to bring people together in a win-win scenario. Tracey is a strong advocate for us as agents within our larger corporate structure. She creates an office atmosphere where we are encouraged to share our perspectives and input. She welcomes suggestions for how we can make our office better and over the 17 years I've been with her, I've seen many of these agent suggestions implemented. Our weekly sales meetings are very valuable because Tracey always finds ways so share inspiration and pertinent information with us so we are current and informed. Tracey is also very involved with our Durham community and brings a vast network of local connections to the table. These contacts are invaluable to our business and to keeping us aware of what's going on in our market. We are better agents for it. I know for a fact that many agents in our office are specifically there because of the strong connection they feel with Tracey and I count myself as one of these people. Some agents even commute long distances from their homes in order to be a part of Tracey's office. It's a special place to work and I'm honored to work with Tracey. Highly recommend her as a manager if you are an agent searching for a new home for your real estate business.

Phenomenal is the first word to pop up when I think of Tracey's dedication to training and mentoring newcomers to the business. Her warmth and team spirit has created an incredibly supportive staff, as well as a large team of experienced agents with a true willingness to help and share their knowledge. I am so lucky to have landed here!

Every agent should be so fortunate to have a Broker-in-Charge like Tracey Goetz! As my mentor since 2013, she has been supportive, inspiring, enthusiastic, and professional.
I appreciate the level of success Tracey has achieved through many years of hard work, a high level attention-to-detail mentality, and a determination to be the best. She sets an excellent example for all of us in the real estate field and beyond.

Where do I start! Tracey has a kind heart and a positive outlook. She is a mover and shaker and looks at a challenge as a mere obstacle to work past. Tracey is very good at keeping in touch. I had interviewed numerous Brokerages and offices over the span of 3 months and Tracey was the ONLY Broker in Charge to call and see how I was doing. She does her research and is tuned in to the real estate market, trends, and the community. She is as prompt as Mary Poppins with a heart as big. She is a true asset to Berkshire Hathaway and I am glad to have her as my managing broker.

Her knowledge and experience are unparalleled in our market and I couldn't be happier to be a member of the fun-loving and hardworking team that she has developed.

Tracey Goetz is an excellent leader, real estate agent and manager. Her insight and experience has helped me to grow my business and be more prosperous since I began working in the Durham office of BHHSYSU Realty!

Administrative Assistant
Tracey has been wonderful. When I interviewed for the position of Administrative Assistant I really did not have any experience in Real Estate. She has helped me understand how the contracts work and pushed me to learn about new technologies so I can help our agents. She is a motivator and will help other agents achieve their successes.

In 2005, when I was newly licensed and looking for a firm to settle with, I received a brochure from Tracey. It was clear quickly that most firms were happy to welcome any new agents into the fold. Tracey was different. Her approach to molding and training new agents and to help facilitate an atmosphere of growth and excellence was at her core. She sets the bar high and expects a level of commitment from her brokers that enables them to excel if they follow her plan (which allows for tweaks of authenticity). I would highly recommend choosing Tracey as your broker-in-charge if you want to thrive in an office where sharing knowledge and giving to the community are important to you. She is a fabulous mentor and friend and I would recommend her without reservation.

Tracey is an amazing leader, and empowers her team to give the real estate business (and their clients) the best of themselves every day. She is unfailingly generous with her gifts, and has very high expectations of everyone she encounters as she serves her cherished community of Durham. I feel privileged to know her, and will forever be grateful to her for introducing me to the incredible world of service we call BHHS real estate!

I have worked with Tracey for over 10 years. She is an amazing person, leader and ambassador for our company and our brand. She values every agent that she manages and takes her one on one coaching and development to another level. I am so proud to call Tracey a friend and a member of our management team.

A major need of fledgling agents is a supportive atmosphere. Without a doubt, the BHHS YSU office in Durham, with its 50 knowledgeable, experienced agents can help anyone take flight and soar!

Tracey is great! She is not a supervisor but a manager. She’s very supportive and she helps me manage my business, meet my goals and stay focused. I’m in the top 6% of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices agents nationwide as a result of Tracey’s encouragement and ongoing training

Tracey is a combination of a pragmatic, level-headed business woman with a childlike sense of wonder and joy. She gives the permission to experience life as an ongoing adventure, to see challenges rather than obstacles, to realize that we hold within ourselves the greatest possibilities

Tracey has built not just a successful real estate office, but a genuine community. I believe her greatest strength as a leader goes well beyond her ability to grow an agent's business as the environment she has created inspires us to become better people. My business has steadily grown each year since I began in 2009 & I can't wait to see to where it goes! I would not be the real estate agent or the person I am today without the help & support of Tracey

I am so lucky to be working under her guidance and being supported by her vast experience, patience, and knowledge. She is a masterful managing broker, is always including creative ideas to stimulate and support the ongoing education of the team she manages here. She is the reason for many agents' longevity here at our office & why many would think of going nowhere else! She is organized & readily makes herself available to our agents. She is just wonderful!!
