First Vice-President: Pamela Banks PMN
Palm Beach, FL
Pamela Banks lives in Lake Worth, Florida. A city known for the Lake Worth Lagoon, a body of water along its eastern border. It is a beautiful combination of shore line and rural paradise. She has lived in Florida for over 40 years. And although she calls Florida home, she is originally from New Jersey.
After graduating from Boca Raton High School in 1978, she attended Broward Community College studying Business Communications. She married her high school sweet heart in 1980 and started her family in 1982. She has been married for 37 years and has three sons ages 35, 33 and 25.
Prior to becoming a mother, Pamela began her sales career selling cosmetics and continued as her children grew in such diverse arenas as hair supplies and advertising. She parlayed an early job selling ad sales for South Florida Horseman into television production sales for the PBS outdoor program Trailside. While these experiences were exhilarating she wanted a change and a friend convinced her to go into real estate.
In 2000 Pamela got her real estate license. She entered the profession with the same enthusiasm and thoughtful consideration as she had done in her previous careers and began working at Coldwell Banker. After three years, she moved her license to RE/MAX Direct. Her referral and sphere of influence business increased and that is where she was introduced by her broker to the Women's Council of REALTORS®.
She immediately immersed herself in the Council and was asked to help rejuvenate the local chapter. In 2004, she became Vice President of Membership. Her involvement continued and she ultimately served as President of the Greater Palm Beach Network. Her vision and ability to recognize opportunities provided the local chapter with a clear direction and growth.
Last September, Pamela was approached by Keller Williams Preferred Partners to head up their luxury division. Utilizing her skills and influence, she facilitates training and recruiting of luxury agents. In addition to her new role and selling real estate, Pamela is also a Productivity Coach, mentoring and sharing her knowledge with new agents.
She is involved in her local and state Associations serving on committees and is a Florida REALTORS® Board of Director. In 2011 as the Chair of the local Community Outreach Committee she founded a benefit 5K for The Barrier Free Park a facility designed for disabled children and adults. The fun run is now in its sixth year and has raised over $30,000.
Since becoming a REALTOR® and a leader in the Women's Council, Pamela has dedicated her time and talents to a profession that is her passion. She promotes public advocacy, challenges the status quo and raises the bar of professionalism in the real estate industry. She exemplifies... Excellence You Can Bank On!
