RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Amy Mosley has endured more peaks and valleys during the course of her life than most people face in a lifetime.
Through career changes, children, divorce and a scary fight with colon cancer, the Ridgefield resident has navigated through her challenges to become one of the rising stars for Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.
“My own experience from designing, building and decorating four luxury homes around the country and consulting with home builders helped develop my passion for real estate,’’ Mosley said. “Becoming a Ridgefield real estate agent was a natural progression after my sales and marketing career. Being a real estate professional allows me to utilize my creative marketing skills, strong work ethic and collaborative communication skills to deliver results for my clients while making a difference in the lives of those that cross my path."
After the birth of her first child, Mosley was out of town on a business trip and collapsed. She was rushed to a local hospital and diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer. "I was determined to beat the odds,'' she said. "I was determined to survive because giving up was just NOT an option.”
Mosley relied heavily on her faith, the desire to be a mother to her son and determination to get through a year of weekly chemotherapy. Halfway through her treatment, her then husband was also diagnosed with stage 4 skin cancer.
"It was beyond belief that we could both be sitting next to one another taking chemo. It was almost too much to bare but deep down inside I knew this test was supposed to become my testimony,'' Mosley said with tears in her eyes.
The following year, while pregnant with their second child, Amy experienced complications due to her previous colon surgery. The result was two more operations and the birth of their child at 26 weeks.
"I watched over our tiny baby (no bigger then Mosley's hand) for 84 days as he fought for his life in the NICU,'' she said. "The experience tested every fiber of my being but I stood in faith that he too would be a survivor, and thankfully he was!"
Mosley's troubles weren't yet behind her. A divorce followed some years later and her survival skills were put to the test once again. "I had to be strong for my four children and show them how to face adversity with grace. It was an awful time but another huge growing experience," Mosley said. "I am incredibly thankful that those days are well behind me. I'm now a 16-year cancer survivor and happily remarried."
Mosley uses her experiences to inspire others. Her message, "Be An Overcomer and Soar To New Heights," conveys her inspirational journey.
Mosley has done more than survive. She has thrived. Her experiences have given her a unique perspective on life. She understands that life is precious and it is about touching others with the life you have been given.
In addition to being a full time Realtor, she also volunteers for Ann’s Place in Danbury, the Ridgefield Basketball Association, Soccer Club of Ridgefield (Mosley was a standout athlete in Texas, and the first person in her school’s Sports Hall of Fame) and is the Craft Fair Relations Chair for the Ridgefield Woman’s Club.
Upon moving to Ridgefield she learned of the Max Michael Rosenfield Live Life to The Max Foundation and immediately felt there was a connection. Mosley became the primary sponsor of the organizaton's annual baseball clinic for kids. Mosley has since also created the Get2Give Giveback Program, another leg of her Get Listed. Get Sold. Get Moving business slogan, where she offers to donate a percentage of her transaction earnings to a local charity of her client's choice in an effort to make a difference in the community.
Mosley was named Coldwell Banker’s New Agent of the Year in 2013, and has listed and sold some of the many wonderful homes in the region. This past year her business tripled as clients entrusted her with their real estate goals.
With 18 years of combined sales, marketing and negotiating experience (with such giants as McDonalds, Taco Bell and ARAMARK), history of sales success, a content home life and a commitment to embrace the technology platforms of today, she feels her best days in real estate are ahead of her.
“The dynamics of buying and selling real estate has changed in 'today's' digitally connected marketplace. As an agent of 'today', I am utilizing the marketing techniques and platforms that reach the buyer's of 'today.' I am always trying to think outside of the box and find new and innovative ways to market properties. It's no longer enough just to put a sign in the yard, list it on the MLS and pray that it sells", Mosley said. “I'm striving to raise the bar in this industry because I believe everyone deserves to have an extraordinary real estate agent; not the ordinary. I am committed to providing my clients with an extraordinary real estate experience. Anything less is not good enough."
