Part of my life is being a part of the community. I like to give back to the community where I live.
I believe in giving back to my profession. I serve as a Board member of the Residential Real Estate Council (RRC) an organization of real estate professionals who have earned the CRS designation. CRS stands for Certified Residential Specialist. It is the only National Association of Realtors designation which requires high sales production in addition to advanced education. The top 3% of agents have earned and hold this elite designation. I have earned my CRS designation and been a member since 2011. Our organization believes in providing education to help provide robust education in addition to continuing education and networking among our members across the country.
I acted as the recording secretary for my community association from 2012-2013. I was an integral part of the board – I recorded meeting minutes and produced the community dues letter to over 600 homes.
I donated my hair to Locks of Love, a non-profit organization helping children who have medical hair loss. The goal of the organization is to improve confidence and self esteem for children through hair pieces (hair prosthetics). Do you have at least 10 inches of hair you can donate to a great cause? See my before and after photos.
In 2009-2010, I chaired a charitable organization in my previous brokerage. We raised awareness and funds to help agents give back to the communities where we live. In 2009, our fundraising efforts were number 1 in the Maryland and DC Region (of 17 offices). Fundraising included MSP/Special Olympics Polar Bear Plunge, Susan G Komen Race for the Cure, general fundraising, School Supply Drive for Halstead Academy, Toys for Tots toy drive, and Food Drive for Maryland Food Bank.
I continue to support various charitable causes and community organizations.
