It is with great humility that I take on the position of President for Laguna Board of REALTORS®. Fortunately, I will be surrounded by a stellar group of seasoned real estate geniuses serving with me this year that will bring knowledge and experience to the table. I want to thank the 2021 Board and Leadership Teams for their commitment to our membership. The success of our Board could not be accomplished without each and every one of you.
I want to encourage all members of LBOR to please get involved with one of our committees. To quote an overused term of the day, we are all in this together, but we can’t get it done without everyone pitching in. So please, reach out and connect the committee chairs. There is always room for one more set of helping hands.
Laura Baptista is our president elect for 2022 and I am very excited to be partnering with her this year. She and I have outlined goals that we hope will make for better board/membership communication and thereby better serving our real estate community needs.
We are energized and enthusiastic about our exploration into new community outreach opportunities and ways to work more closely with our neighbors and affiliate business partners.
We are choosing to view the changes and challenges Covid has imposed on us and our industry as opportunities to do better. We are committed to working more closely and openly with our membership despite current physical restrictions. To that point, please remember that we are mandated to adhere with the governors and CARs Covid guidelines which seem to change daily, even hourly which is making it very tricky to conduct our business. But, in light of how the pandemic has affected our national economy, I think we have been very lucky as a whole, to be in an industry that has not only survived, but thrived this past year. So let’s all please follow the rules and protocols we’ve been given - as our designation as an essential business can be pulled at any moment if we violate. We’ve gotten this far – let’s not blow it now!
I promise to make myself as available to all of you as possible and hope you will reach out to me and the Board with your questions, concerns and suggestions. Please take advantage of our newly launched “Suggestion Box” for this purpose. I will do my best to respond within 24 hours.
We will definitely be reaching out to you all for ideas, solutions and innovative ways to rework what needs fixing and preserve what is working well. So thank you in advance for your partnership in this process and your support moving forward.
Here’s to a healthy, happy, successful 2021. Hang in there everybody!
