Georgia 2021 President Norm Kennedy

Hello, and welcome to the Women’s Council of Realtors Georgia.  I am honored to be your 2021 President and excited to stand beside an amazing group of leaders both on the State and Local levels.  As we celebrate our 50th Anniversary, the Women’s Council of Realtors Georgia is committed to leaving an impact on our industry and the communities we serve. 

I was encouraged five years ago to get involved with the Women’s Council of Realtors. I was beginning my full-time career in Real Estate and was told that it would be good for my career.  Little did I know the impact this organization would have on my life, both professionally and personally.  The training, the networking, the relationships, all of which have been immeasurable.

I encourage each and every one of you to get engaged.  The true value of your membership isn’t realized until you have the opportunity to share your experience and skills with the group of like-minded professionals.  This is our opportunity to make a difference and I ask that you join us on that journey. 

Norm Kennedy

2021 Georgia President
