Wen Saunders

Life With Purpose

Wen Saunders believes in chasing dreams and that hard work can change lives. She’s no stranger to individual success. Top-performing photographer. National speaker. Sales and marketing business coach. Saunders has achieved all those titles in throughout her photojournalism and marketing 35-year career.

After semi retiring from a photojournalism and marketing career, she soon discovered a passion for real estate. After all upon graduation from college, she worked for one of Virginia’s largest independent real estate companies as their marketing director. Licensed in 2011, during the downward real estate spiral which included a large number of short sales, falling prices, and foreclosure, she was told it would be impossible to start a profitable real estate career. She wasn’t daunted. She incorporates technology into all parts of her business, from house signs and fliers with QR codes for more information and details of the listing to designing her self created and branded magazine and newspaper advertisements. She quadrupled her sales in 2012, which was only her second full year in real estate!

With Saunders, Integrity is a nonnegotiable quality. Her simple philosophy to put customers first, while upholding herself to the highest standards allows her to stay focused on the best possible outcome. Saunders understands clients want efficient communication, a can-do attitude, and want to work with someone with the know-how to overcome obstacles, especially in today’s real estate market. Saunders has certification as a CDPE (Certified Distressed Property Expert) and a CNE (Certified Negotiations Expert) and has taken over 60 hours of additional real estate courses (only 24 hours are required in three years). She manages to find the time to educate herself in this ever changing real estate market; providing the best possible service to both buyers and sellers.
