As of 10:30 AM yesterday 10/05/2020, the race to win one of the 4 open seats on the 2021 Board of Directors for Greater Nashville Realtors
The journey began with @ a dozen top notch Realtors who opted in by filing a nomination. These folks then followed a very smooth process which narrowed the candidates down to a “Slate of Six”.
I was most impressed by the this process because the sole focus was to have boundaries to ensure a level playing field . . . There were no possibilities for unfair advantages (Believe me – I inadvertently pushed those boundaries twice and immediately was “called on the carpet”), No harm – no foul.
This is akin to Lacrosse Referees and players on the field – Everyone knows the rules, and the real boundaries end up being defined by the tolerance of the Refs . . . There was ZERO tolerance in this process.
I would not even contemplate running for the Board of Directors without having a burning passion to help make a positive difference in the businesses and lives of our member Realtors.
There’s a lot at stake here . . .
Take a gander at the “Campaign Platform” below – These are “4 Pillars” that I believe are paramount for we Realtors to focus on as we face all of the challenges of these tumultuous times.
– Local Niche
For sure – All Realtors feel like the existence of our livelihood is under attack from all sides – Internet, Local, State, and National government, and onslaught of class action lawsuits. I believe our Local, State, and Nashville Realtor Associations combat these assaults on our profession with RPAC – Circling our wagons around our NICHEs (Real Estate sales is LOCAL) – and a campaign of Building relationships.
As our membership continues to grow and digital business continues to innovate, Broker “Supervision” becomes more “diluted” and more essential. We need strong emphasis on the ETHICAL practices of our members – then add a measure of defining “best practices” regarding Etiquette and as our Principal Brokers and agents work together and with clients a SOLID mantra of Realtor to Realtor (Clear) cooperation
Personal Well-Being (Life Rhythm)
Many of our members are living toxic lives . . . Literally killing themselves Mentally, Physically, Spiritually, socially, emotional – This works together with the professionalism. How can we call ourselves “professionals” while working 24/7/365?
I believe THIS is the pivotal time to focus on these right things, and my reason for wanting to serve on the board is to do whatever possible to improve the quality of life for our members.
How can Greater Nashville Realtors provide more value for you and your business?
