I am incredibly humbled and honored to serve the members of WCREALTORS as the President in 2018. I have been involved with the Williamson County Association of REALTORS® for almost 20 years, and I am ecstatic at the direction our Association is headed. Our 2017 Board of Directors, led by Suzanne Gantner did an exceptional job, and I am looking forward to building on these achievements.

In case you missed the Annual Installation & Awards Banquet on December 7th, it was a magical night; not only did we get real snow in Williamson County, we also had a great night celebrating with almost 300 real estate professionals as we recognized those who helped make 2017 a success.

This year’s industry award winners were:

  • REALTOR® of the Year - Greg Hodge, RE/MAX Capital City 
  • Rookie of the Year - Spencer Wheelwright, RE/MAX 1 
  • Affiliate Company of the Year - Mortgage Solutions Financial - The Gregson-Domel Team 
  • Affiliate Member of the Year - John Schutze, Guaranteed Rate  
  • President's Choice Award - Jack Stapleton, Realty Texas
  • Community Neighbor Award - Hill Country Community Ministries 
  • Distinguished Service - Linda Graves, RE/MAX Capital City

In 2017, we become the voice of real estate defeating two burdensome sign ordinances within the County, we helped get 3 candidates elected to local city councils, co-published the Williamson County Relocation Guide, and helped secure the future of the Association by growing the Central Texas MLS.

Looking ahead to 2018, I am very encouraged by the ideas from our Board of Directors and committee chairs about bringing an increased value to the membership. Between new TREPAC events, more Bus Tours, a new date for the Builders Fair, an increased media presence, and new professional development opportunities, we already have a pretty full calendar for most of 2018.

2018 is the year we are bringing back luncheons, with our State of the County Address from County Commissioner Cynthia Long on Tuesday, January 18th at 11:30.  As for events, the TREPAC Committee is starting off 2018 with a Sip & Stroll along the Historic Georgetown Square, more information about this event is available at wcrealtors.org!  Be sure to save the date for our first Member Mixer on February 18th, West Side Story Bus Tour on February 22nd, and the All-Star Builders Fair on April 12th.

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 on putting together quarterly activities where our members give back to the community, and our Scholarship Foundation will be awarding scholarships to deserving high school seniors.

To accomplish all of this, the Association needs your help! Join a committee, attend an event, and share your feedback. It is essential that you remember that the leaders of the Williamson County Association of REALTORS® are here for YOU.  We openly welcome your creative ideas and suggestions for ways we can continue to grow this great Association.  We are in it together – my best to you and your family in 2018!
