- Message from the President
I am forever grateful to my colleagues and my family who supported me on my journey to become President of BNAR. Thank you to my very dear friend, Assemblyman Robin Schimminger, for honoring me with my installation.
My Presidential theme is Empower Your Tomorrow. My vision is to highlight the strength and contribution of our 2600 Realtor members in Western New York. The Real Estate Industry is the hub of our economy. For every home a Realtor sells, the American Dream is fulfilled. For every home a Realtor sells, jobs are created in our communities; national statistics show that when a home is sold 60k is generated back to our economy on the national level. For every home a Realtor sells, we preserve the rights of private property owners.
The real world expertise of Realtors plays such a vital role in shaping public policies because we know what works in the market place and what doesn’t. No one matches our ability when it comes to educating federal law makers and regulators about important issues affecting the real estate market. The preservation of the American Dream depends on providing Americans with safe, affordable financing first and foremost.
I live by quotes of some great people . . . this is one of my favorites. “Do not go where the path may lead you, go where there is no path and leave a trail”. To our Realtor members this evening I can say to you I am up to the challenge, I am inspired, I am energized and I will not fail you. Thank you everyone. I am proud to be a Realtor and I am proud to be an American.
God bless you and God bless America.
Also, don’t ever hesitate to contact me. I have a special email “Ask Christie” for you to keep in touch with me and sending your questions or comments any time, on any subject 24/7/365.
