Dayton Area Board of Realtors
Week 3: May 13 – May 19
The Casually Cool Award
What do you like to do for fun?
The best part about the arrival of spring is that between March and October once 5 o’clock hits, you’re about 2 hours away from the first pitch of a Reds game. So, that means rounding up a few folks to either watch the game at a restaurant or see if we can score some cheap seats to catch the game live. In addition to that, I love taking Rudy on walks and to the dog park! Since rescuing him, I have since become a huge fan of dog parks! If it’s 70 and sunny, you can most likely find me playing fetch with Rudy at a local dog park!
Week 2: May 6 – May 12
The Workplace Image Award
What do you find most rewarding about your job?
In my current role I work with our Realtor® members to protect private property rights and promote homeownership. The ability to own private property is what separates America and the rest of the world.
Homeownership stands as an expression of freedom as such a privilege is denied or placed out of reach for the masses in other nations. It’s crucial that no public policy impedes the American dream of homeownership, as the purchase of private property stands to be the cornerstone of community development. It is the largest financial decision of one’s life and ultimately becomes an investment into the community in which they live.
The most rewarding part of my job is knowing that behind all of our advocacy efforts is one goal: to ensure that the American dream of homeownership, as well as the rights that come with it, is unimpeded and never out of reach.
Week 1: April 24 – May 5
The First Impressions Award
What made you decide to pursue your current career or vocation?
My driving motivation behind my career is to do work that improves the lives of those in the community. Growing up in the Dayton area through the great recession, I saw businesses leave and the impact that had on those around me at the time. On one hand, neighbors helped one another and helped where they could. Through this I learned the strength of community. On the other hand, I learned how government action, or lack thereof, can impact our communities and economy. It was through these events that I knew I wanted to study and work in a field that can produce positive outcomes for the public.
