Cape Coral-Fort Myers
I am truly honored to be the 2023 President of the Women’s Council of Realtors® Cape Coral-Fort Myers Network. You have entrusted me to care for our network and to help build up the future leaders that will come after us. This charge I do not take lightly and will do my best to lead by example alongside with our leadership team.
Our mission statement really tells what we are about at the core and I believe in this whole heartedly. "We are a network of successful REALTORS®, advancing women as business leaders in the industry and in the communities we serve."
My goal this year is that we serve each other and build each other up as we create more leaders. In this industry there is certainly enough business to go around for everyone. We here at the Women's Council believe in working together rather than against each other as REALTORS®. It is certainly easier to make a transaction happen when you know the agent on the other side and have rapport with them. Our Network allows for us to foster these relationships.
The past year has brought Southwest Florida some major challenges. Coming fresh out of the Pandemic and experiencing a devastating Hurricane, we have had to show resilience and strength. I couldn't be more proud of our community for how we have come together and showed love and compassion for our fellow neighbors. We have a long road to rebuild our community but I am confident that we will rebuild stronger and better than we were before. We REALTORS® and Industry partners have an integral role in our rebuilding. This year we plan to bring you more relevant education that will prepare you to help your clients and our community more. I am looking forward to this year with you all by my side as we work together to become better professionals who strive for excellence in our craft!
I would like to thank those who have volunteered as Chairs of the different Project Teams. As Chair of the different 2023 Project teams, each one contributes immeasurably to the success of our organization.
