Today we’d like to introduce you to Sunni Puric.
Alright, thank you for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, how did you get started?
I started my radio career at 18 in Detroit, at FM 98 WJLB. I worked my way up the ranks to become the first woman from my country to host her show on American Radio. From there, I worked in Miami and New York before settling in DC in 2011 at 95.5 WPGC. In addition to midday and morning show hosting duties that I’ve had at WPGC (until we parted ways in 2021), I’m also working as a contributing host for Fox 5 DC. During the pandemic in 2020, I started my entrepreneurship journey by getting my real estate licenses in DC / MD and VA. Turning my lifelong passion for helping others to achieve their homeownership dreams is very special to me.
We all face challenges, but would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
At the beginning of my radio career, I had to work a lot on my voice and delivery. I still had a thick accent (I had just learned to speak English a few years back), and I had to ensure that my voice sounded good enough to be on the air. As for the second part of my career, taking extra steps to stay safe while working in real estate is no joke. As a woman, many challenges present themselves, like going places alone, meeting clients for the first time, and men trying to schedule meetings to meet you. We have to stay alert constantly.
We’ve been impressed with Sunni Sells City, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I’m a licensed realtor serving Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia. I recently joined Coalition Properties Group, a community-focused real estate sales team, and I’m very honored to be working with these amazing individuals. Combining my passion for helping others and their track record and community involvement, we will be doing some amazing things in the future and helping people create wealth through real estate.
What was your favorite childhood memory?
I grew up in a small village that was named after my family’s last name, and most of my childhood was spent outside. There isn’t any specific memory that is my favorite, but my love for nature, watching the stars at night while my mom peeled apples for us and told us stories, is one of the sweetest.
