By Cyndi Bell • 2019 President

The 46th Annual Installation and Awards Banquet, hosted last year on Dec. 6, was an action-packed night filled with celebrating 2018 with fellow real estate professionals and recognizing those who helped make 2018 a success. Our 2018 Board of Directors, led by 2018 President Victoria Reviel, did an exceptional job leading and promoting Williamson County Association of REALTORS. During the event, we recognized our fellow members that contributed to the success of WCREALTORS in 2018.

This year’s industry award winners are:

  • REALTOR of the Year – C.J. Pfau, Pfau & Company
  • Rookie of the Year – Laura Staves, Keller Williams, Georgetown
  • Affiliate Company of the Year – RIS Austin
  • Affiliate Member of the Year – Darian Rausch, Stewart Title
  • President’s Choice Award – Cheryl Stephens, 98th Meridian
  • Distinguished Service – Gary Cocanougher, ERA Colonial Real Estate

Looking ahead to 2019, WCREALTORS is experiencing a change in leadership. As you know, we will be saying “goodbye” to Marge Philips, our association executive. Marge has guided the association over the past 12 years and is moving to a well-deserved retirement. A new association executive will be taking the helm in February.

Part of the mission of WCREALTORS is to enhance and promote REALTOR members’ professionalism to encourage member involvement in Williamson County. The association works diligently through monthly news articles, press releases and fireside chats with the local media. Furthermore, our community service committee will be working hard putting together activities where our members give back to the community. Check out the online calendar for upcoming events and register! We have our popular events planned such as Super Bowl of Builders, Eastside Bus Tour, Westside Bus Tour, Luxury Bus Tour, annual golf tournament, annual food drive and TREPAC events, plus some more new events you will not want to miss! These events are a great way to network and build your business.

If you have not already done so, I invite you to come by the association, have a cup of coffee and visit with the staff, explore our REALTOR store, take a class from our industry-leading instructors or attend an event and find why almost 2,000 real estate professionals are proud to call WCREALTORS their home.

I am honored to be your 2019 president,and I hope to see you at our upcoming events, classes and networking opportunities. RL
