D’Ann Harper, 2017 Legacy Leader

The San Antonio Business Journal honored some of San Antonio’s most esteemed business and community leaders on Thursday, March 9th. The 2017 class of Legacy Leaders included businessmen, Jack Guenther, Bill Klesse, former CEO of Valero Energy, Kevin Trevett, former president and CEO of Texas Biomedical Research Institute and the Cortez family, the family behind San Antonio’s iconic restaurants such as Mi Tierra Café y Panaderia. Also included was D’Ann Harper, founder and owner of Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS®, considered by many a real estate legend. D’Ann was introduced by former U.S. Rep. Charles Gonzales, a 2014 Legacy Leader.

In this feature article published by the San Antonio Business Journal, D’Ann Harper is described as the family-loving woman that she is. The real estate brokerage she founded under the Coldwell Banker name has continued to grow to more than 400 REALTORS®. During her continued success the goal and vision of Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® has remained the same. CBHarper is built on the tradition of trust and family.

In her own words D’Ann Harper says, “It is because  of our wonderful real estate professionals and employees that I had the privilege of accepting this award!”

Through the many congratulations and phone calls, D’Ann remains herself, as she ever was. The kind of lady who will stop and chat with you about the kids or give you a hug in the hallway. She still works on her ranch and can cook a mean Ribeye steak.

Anna Visioli, VP of Digital Marketing at Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC., said it best, “Could not be more well-deserved! Proud to have such an impressive, strong leader in the Coldwell Banker network.”

From all of us here at Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS®, congratulations D’Ann on being chosen for the San Antonio Business Journal’s 2017 Legacy Leader!

This event certainly is fun for both rodeo fans and everyone from the Greater San Antonio area. The performing artists of the night were Gary Allan, Neal McCoy and Bret Mullins.

The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo has grown to be one of the largest events, possible with the except of Fiesta, with as many as two million visitors each year.*  It is one of the top PRCA (Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association) rodeos in the nation.

The San Antonio Livestock Exposition, Inc. was established with the mission “A volunteer organization that emphasizes agriculture and education to develop the youth of Texas”. The focus on educating the youth of Texas lead to integrating 4-H and FFA high school students and making educational commitments to support their interest in the agricultural and livestock industry. In 1984, the scholarship program began when fifteen, four-year scholarships totaling $90,000 to were awarded to students entering Texas colleges in the fall. Since then, the organization has committed more than $171.4 million to the youth of Texas through scholarships, grants, endowments, junior livestock auctions, youth western art auction, calf scramble program and show premiums.**

img_0326Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® held its 2nd Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest at the North Central / Stone Oak Support Center. Each year a staff works tirelessly behind the scenes to support the Sales Agents and CBHarper infrastructure. While it can be a serious job, there’s still room for festivities.

The competition was tough, with the defending “Ugly Sweater Champion” Katie Tipton out of the race, the Support Center staff put their ugliest foot forward. “Jackie Frost” let the group with her reign of “Let It Snow”. Followed closely by a parade of cute (but also very ugly, competitively speaking) sweaters worn by Aliza Briones, Melody Dang, Callynn Darby, Lexie Kiser, Charleen Schoubroek, Jessica Wortman, Audrey Cheatum and Melissa Coultress.

The judges deliberated long and thoughtfully but the winners were announced in the downstairs lobby in front of our beautiful tree.

The 3rd place winner is Melissa Hernandez:

The 2nd place winner is Rachelle Lozano:

The 1st place winner is Norma Luna:

Congratulations to these three winners — and to everyone who participated. It was such a wonderful way to gather together and enjoy the holiday cheer!
