As 2022 draws to a close and the holidays are in full swing, I want to give a heartfelt thanks to each of you for being what is right in residential real estate. Members of RRC and our CRS Designees represent the most committed REALTORS® in the industry, and each of you work tirelessly in the pursuit of education and professionalism to represent your clients the way they deserve. You R the difference!
As I see the impact you make in not only real estate, but your communities, it reaffirms my RRC/CRS WHY! If you want to be the best, you must surround yourself with the best! Thank you for demonstrating what it truly means to be a member of the Council and educating others about the positive impact on not only your careers, but your lives. We are a global RRC family, and I believe that every CRS should sit across the closing table from another CRS or an RRC member working on their designation!
I had the honor of representing RRC as I traversed four countries in 2022. The United States, Spain, France and Romania. I will never forget how each of you welcomed me in and made me feel! I am forever grateful. It also gave me tremendous insight that I was able to bring back to our leadership team, board of directors and behind the scenes team at national. Being able to meet and have candid conversations with members where you are, and understand your markets, hear your Whys, personal ambitions, and goals reaffirms and provides even more clarity that when we unite as a global RRC/CRS family with the purest hearts, the best education, resources and networking in the industry, we are unstoppable!
In the coming year, as the RRC Immediate Past President I will continue looking to you, our amazing members and be collaborating with Pam, the leadership team and board to refine and execute key strategies that will ensure Council makes an even greater impact in years to come! Our future is BRIGHT!
Until then… be blessed, be present and take time for yourself, you deserve it! It is my hope that each of you have a happy, healthy, prosperous and gratitude-filled holiday season and 2023!
Holli Woodward, 2022 President
