Re-energizing the CRS network as the leaders for raising the bar of professionalism in the profession. Engaging members who have felt ‘outside’ of the inner workings of the organization. Giving voice to the producers who have neglected or eschewed their necessary role in ‘what happens next.’
So far.

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.

Connie Corey, past president of NC REALTORS®. I didn’t know her prior to my involvement, but she has been one of my staunchest supporters as I have grown and grown. She was not the ‘usual’ president which I believe has encouraged others to step up.

Linda Trevor, works without the need for accolades. Her sincere goodness inspires me to be a better Realtor and human.

Be Epic. Be an NC REALTOR®.
