“Real Estate is a refreshing change for me; every day is different, and every property is unique. I enjoy the human face of the industry very much, where numbers are only a part of a much bigger equation. It’s incredibly rewarding to assist someone to fulfil their property goals – whether adding to an investment portfolio, selling their family home, or buying their dream property.”
I very much value the trust that my client’s place in me to handle such a valued asset; I always aim to exceed expectations, and work tirelessly to make that happen. I take nothing for granted, this is a competitive industry and to succeed at the highest level, you need to work hard, think smart, and operate with integrity.”

Beth Lagos joined Priority Residential after working for nearly a decade for a franchise group; attracted to the boutique nature of Priority, and owner Taryn’s business model and ethics, Beth is a perfect fit for this talented team.

I love being part of this process – the facilitator, marketer, and negotiator. There is nothing more motivating and uplifting than delivering good news; it gives you a natural high that I can’t imagine replicated in any other job.”
