Have you been inspired by other NC REALTOR® women throughout the years? Please name them here and briefly describe how they have impacted you, the industry or the association.

Billie Mercer. When I received my license I talked with a few firms, but after talking with Billie I knew she would be tough and would run a very tight office. At the time I did not realize her many accomplishments at the state level. Billie was having issues with her health shortly after I joined her firm, but she graciously invited me to her home when she was not able to be in the office to help me with the many aspects of selling real estate. Her love and dedication to our industry is still with me today.

Be Epic. Be an NC REALTOR®.
