The real estate world became of interest to me when I bought my current home in NC. My company relocated me to this area, and after having a rather pleasant buying experience, I decided to explore opportunities in real estate. In 1997, I left a long career in retail management and training and joined the world of general brokerage in which I began my career working with Fonville Morisey and continued with that firm for 8 years.
In 2005, I joined Coldwell Banker Advantage as BIC of the Wake Forest office. My responsibilities included recruiting, training and building an office team. These skills have served me well in my volunteer roles at the Raleigh Regional Association of REALTORS®. As I learned more about our industry, I realized more involvement in our Association would better enable me to educate and help my clients, my team, and serve my colleagues by being a voice on our local Board and by serving at the state level.
RRAR Involvement: Director, and have served on the BOD from 2010 – present; Secretary-Treasurer 2016 and 2018; serve as a volunteer instructor for new agent orientation training on the Code of Ethics. Being involved with new associates allows me to instill in them the responsibility of always doing what is right and the importance of their duties to the public, their clients and their peers.
Committees and Councils: Professional Standards 2010 -2015. Government Affairs 2004 to present, and Chaired in 2013; Grievance 2004-2009, Chair 2006-2009, Finance Chair 2016 and 2018, RPAC 2015-present. Other involvement: Several RRAR Strategic Planning sessions, Chair Public Policy Sub-Committee – 2014; Board of Directors for REALTOR® Foundation of Wake County 2014-present, the philanthropic arm of Raleigh Regional Association doing good works in the community to continually raise the public image of REALTORS® and all we do for our communities. Board of Directors for Triangle Community Coalition (TCC) 2017 and 2018. Womens Council of Realtors 2017-present.
NCR Involvement: Director 2011 to present. I have attended numerous NCR conventions and taken particular interest in Government Affairs, Risk Management and currently serve on the NCR Forms Committee and the Risk Management Advisory Group. I take special interest in the Finance, and Budget issues at the state level due to their impact on our day to day business.
