Residential Real Estate Council
President

The Residential Real Estate Council (RRC) has gone through many changes over the past few years. As its president in 2019, I would like to capitalize on those changes and further facilitate growth and availability of our education, expand member networking opportunities and referral exchange, and continue to raise awareness of the CRS designation and new certifications among a broader demographic of REALTORS® and real estate agents nationally and internationally.

I see tremendous opportunities for the Council to add value to its members by continuing to be an innovative and valuable resource for them and preparing them for economic growth as well as an uncertain environment in 2019. More informed and educated members will make better decisions for themselves and their customers and will contribute to an overall increased level of professionalism in our industry. It’s an opportunity for RRC and me personally to establish a better connection with our members and be a coach and a mentor to those who need it—to assist our members at the grassroots level where their business occurs.
