Nominated to NVAR Leadership Academy PDF Print E-mail

In addition to the typical business of real estate, 2014 brings a new twist with my nomination to the NVAR Leadership Academy.  This is a unique position offered up to just a dozen out of thousands of Realtors every year, and it's an honor to be considered as someone who might contribute both today and in the future back into the agent community.  Although it's not often in the foreground, the NVAR (Northern Virginia Association of Realtors) serves an important function within the fabric of the market as one of the largest Realtor associations in the DC area, the largest shareholder of the regional MLS system, and one of the most respected associations in the entire country.

Completely unexpected during this event were the numerous references to former NVAR president Renee Miller across several speeches at the induction ceremony yesterday.  Renee was not only one of the most inspiring and influential personages to hold that office in the history of the association, but she was also the mother of one of my closest friends growing up.  Of course, it was in the capacity of being my friends' mother that I knew her best, but in the early days of my entering the business she also served as support and inspiration.  Unfortunately, Renee died of cancer in 2007 after a multi-year struggle.  It's my hope to return even just some of what she gave to NVAR, and to me personally, back to the association.
