Keller Williams, West Chester
8 Years Active in Real Estate
What was your career prior to real estate, if applicable?
Prior to real estate I worked at my parents’ hardware store that they owned for 24 years.
What type of leadership roles have you held outside of real estate?
Working with my parents and helping them grow their business was one of the best things that ever happened to me and it helped get me to where I am today. While working there I took on several different leadership roles from managing our sales department, employee management & leadership, and assisting my parents in growing the sales to over $4 million annually. I am currently an active board member with the Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce and I participate on the business advocacy and ambassador committees.
As a voice for your colleagues, what strengths/insights will you bring to the Board discussions?
The strengths/insights that I will bring to the Board discussions will be: to be an active member on the Board, to be a good listener, to advocate for members, ability to provide insight on the current challenges we as REALTORS® are facing in the field, and to discuss current trends and technology.
What issues do you feel the Association should be addressing?
I feel that the Association needs to stay on the forefront of protecting and promoting the careers of REALTORS®. The landscape in the real estate industry continues to evolve at a fast pace and it is important that the members have the tools and training to continue to grow their businesses at a high level.
Why are you interested in serving as a member of the Board of Directors?
As a young professional and a full-time REALTOR® for eight years, I think it is important to make sure the Association continues to operate at a high level, while promoting, protecting, and educating the members to make sure they are aware of the latest technology and trends in our industry.
