The Keller Williams Associate Leadership Council

Have you ever wondered what exactly it is that makes Keller Williams realty such a different and innovative company? Aside from their dedication and councilcommitment to each and every agent, the intensity and follow through of their training to ensure each agent has the opportunity to succeed, is their dynamic idea for their Associate Leadership Council.  This council consists of the top 20% of the agent bodies in the market centers.  The purpose of this council is to give the agents a vehicle for giving direct input as to the operation of our day to day business as well as our overall goals.  And really who knows and understand the needs of their clients better than the agents that serve them.  I am proud to say that I serve on the council as part of the education committee.  Being part of this council has only strengthened my belief in our company and its ability to maintain itself as a powerhouse and the largest real estate company with the most agents.

With all of that being said, it’s no secret that I love my job and you can too!  If you are a self motivated person, someone who desires a flexible schedule, and enjoys being part of a fun and dedicated team then real estate may be the job you’ve been looking for.  If you are interested in a potential career in real estate please contact me to attend a free, informative session to help answer all of your questions! I look forward to hearing from you and hope to have the opportunity to work with you!

The Importance of Community: In My Own Opinion

You may have seen us at many local events in town, the most recent being this weekend at the annual Heritage Fair and Fall Festival.  And while I would be pendleton with logolying if I didn’t acknowledge the business side to it all, the real motivation is for us to get out and get involved in our community.  Until I moved to Pendleton and  became a realtor, I have to admit that I didn’t fully understand the importance that community and camaraderie served in our everyday lives.  In fact, being able to meet new people, talk with my extended neighbors, appreciate the beauty of our town, explore different areas of our town, attend local events, and support local causes the best I can is the real reason that I love my job.

Generations ago a person’s community served a vital part in their lives.  They assisted one another, bartered goods, helped raised children, and went through tough times together as a team.  With our society now functioning at such a fast pace and having access to other outlets, somewhere along the way many of us have lost our dedication to our community.  Over the years, especially in my profession, I have met countless people who have never so much as met their next door neighbor! Not only is your neighbor one of your best allies against neighborhood crime but they can lend a cup of sugar, help get your mail while on vacation, and the person most likely to see you in your underwear when you lock yourself out grabbing the paper.  With potential like that it seems silly to not at least take the first step and introduce yourself.

We are very lucky to live in a town that still values community which is evident by the many events geared towards bringing our community closer together.  It is also displayed in the many random acts of kindness that I have witnessed over the years.  With that being said I’d like to issue a challenge to each of you to get more involved in our community.  This can be a silent challenge or you can message me your act, I’d love to hear them.  Here are some ideas to get you and your family more involved and help benefit our entire community:

* Introduce yourself to your neighbors (It doesn’t hurt to bring a little plate of cookies).  Even if you have been there for years it is never too late to make a new friend.

* Participate in a random act of kindness.  This can range from helping an elderly neighbor rake her leaves to cooking up an extra meal for a busy single mom!

* Attending community events.  The more people that come out and support these events helps to ensure that the events continue!

* Buying local.  Buying as many items locally as you can helps keep the money within our own community!

* Organizing a neighborhood or street cook-out or get together.  Sometimes all it takes is for someone to make the initial connection to help bring a community together.

* Volunteering.  We have many wonderful and worthwhile charities in our community and surrounding area.  I have forged some of my most meaningful relationships with people who have the same passion that I do while volunteering.
