It’s that time of year again to “Join an Arcadia Association of REALTORS Committee for 2012!” As your 2011 President Elect for our great Association of REALTORS , I look back and reflect on how I got to where I am today… it really is all because of joining the Tech Committee back in 2003. My mentor Kenny Watanabe influenced me to get involved with the AAR and that was exactly what I did and never looked back. This is also where I made wonderful relationships with many of the brokers, managers, and top producers that serve the local San Gabriel Valley real estate markets. It’s those relationships that have also contributed to my success as a Realtor because it is so much easier working with an agent that you know and trust.
This is also why I am so passionate about our YPN committee. It gives the “Young and Young at Heart” agents a place to feel welcomed by our Association in a very fun, educational, and open way to network with all the industries within our local real estate community. A quick success story is Micah Adams (Chair of Events for Charity & Vice Chair of YPN) and Kelvin Chang (Co-Chair of YPN) who since getting involved with the AAR have not only closed transactions with other committee members, but have also made a great name for themselves locally and nationally for their efforts… kudos to a couple of the future rising stars of the AAR. Another great reason to join a committee is to make strategic partnerships with some of the amazing affiliates that we have at our Board of REALTORS. Therefore, if you are passionate about Technology, we would love for you to come checkout our next Tech Committee meeting. If you are interested in education, international real estate, local government relations, marketing etc., we would love to invite you to our next meeting. Go to www.TheAAR.com today to view the schedule of our committee days and times or call the office at 626.446.2115 to speak to one of our wonderful staff members.
As your President Elect of the Arcadia Association of REALTORS, I am really looking to reach out to all the amazing offices in our Association to find new members to get involved with committees in 2012!
