With a natural affinity for sales and meeting new people, Tabitha Kucharczyk is uniquely qualified for her work as a real estate agent. In 2015, she accepted a position with Keller Williams Realty, with which she currently excels as the head of an eponymous team of agents. In this capacity, she focuses on real estate sales, specifically dealing with the listings that others will not. Prior to her present post, Ms. Kucharczyk gained valuable expertise in the field as a broker and realtor with ERA Strother Real Estate, as well as the lead transaction coordinator for Tropical Realty & Investments of Brevard Inc.
Earlier in her career, Ms. Kucharczyk served as a retail advertising sales executive for Florida Today Communications. In a career filled with highlights, she is especially proud of her dealings with military families. Additionally, Ms. Kucharczyk has been honored on a plethora of occasions for her dedication and professional excellence, accepting the Sales Executive of the Year Award in 2006, the Top Producing Individual Agent Award in 2018 and 2019, the USAA Top Agent for Going Above and Beyond, a Customer Service Award and recognition among Fayetteville’s 40 Under 40 Most Influential People. In 2020, she was presented with the Fayetteville Observer Readers’ Choice Award in the category of “Best Realtor,” as well as featured in the special October “Faces of Fayetteville Real Estate” edition of Cityview Magazine and nominated for Top Real Estate Agent of the Year.
An expert in her field, Ms. Kucharczyk earned a Bachelor of Science in advertising from the University of Illinois in 2004. Outside of her primary responsibilities as a realtor, she contributes to her community through her husband’s military unit, where she is active as an FRG leader, treasurer and battalion secretary. As a proud army wife and mother of three, Ms. Kucharczyk connects well with others who face the odd hours and demands of the military. She values families and all that they go through in finding the best schools and other resources that they all need to make their lives happy and reproductive. She is very thorough in all that she does, and her dedication and passion always shines through.
Ms. Kucharczyk has further flourished as a public relations chairperson for Adopt-a-School, and as a coach for her children’s soccer and tee-ball teams. In previous years, she was affiliated with the Sigma Kappa Sorority, the Heart of North Carolina, Food Harvest Bank, and the local chapters for Habitat for Humanity and the Ronald McDonald House. Through her military community service, Ms. Kucharczyk was presented with the Iron Mike Award and the Molly Pitcher Award. Along with her family, she was also nominated as one of the top five families of the year for the recognition of Fort Bragg Family of the Year in 2018.
There are several factors that have played a role in Ms. Kucharczyk’s success. Her upbringing, being a child that moved around often, shaped her into a well-rounded person who is updatable in most circumstances. Additionally, she prides herself on being a hard worker and a person who didn’t take “no” as an answer. In the future, she hopes her legacy is reflective of her impeccable customer service, and that she is recognized as a person who was selfless and helpful in all situations.
According to Ms. Kucharczyk, her mother is by far the most influential person in her life, walking away from a bad marriage that was financially stable to do what was best for her and her daughter. She worked an 8-5 office job all day, then bartended late at night to make ends meet as a single mother for seven years. Their first apartment was a one bedroom with no air conditioning and she gave the bed and room to her daughter while she slept on the couch. She fought hard to get where she is and to now be financially stable, owning her own business and happily remarried, living on five acres in Florida. Ms. Kucharczyk says if anyone taught her about life struggles, fighting to overcome, standing strong, and not giving up, it’s her.
Another mentor in her life was her cousin named Ricky. She looked up to her cousin because he was intelligent, a good role model, seemed to always do right, and had been there for her to talk to when she was young. He also taught her to ride a bike and encouraged her to always do well in school, also influencing what university she wanted to attend by the age of 11, because that’s where he was attending. She never gave up on that dream and graduated from there 10 years later.
In the coming years, Ms. Kucharczyk would like to see her team continue to grow and develop. Additionally, she would like to continue to grow her team by adding more licensed agents working directly under her. Ultimately, her goal would be to take a step back from the hands on work of showing homes and listing homes, and act more as the chief executive officer by delegating and overseeing the business. In doing so, it should allow Ms. Kucharczyk to give time back to her family who have sacrificed, and yet have always been supportive of her as she grew her real estate career over the last 11 years, and will hopefully also allow time for more travel which is one of Ms. Kucharcyzk’s most passionate hobbies.
