There are so many facets of Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® each made of carefully selected professionals who truly love what they do. When thinking of the CB Harper Family as a whole it’s easy to highlight all the wonderful people on our team, but difficult to ensure we haven’t missed anything. We rely on the feedback from the nearly 400 people on staff and those on-board as Sales Associates. Recently some photos were forwarded along to us and we wanted to share some of the wonderful things that have been going on over at our North West Office.
Julie Conner, Vice President Residential Sales and Ed Zapata, Assistant Sales Manager have taken a very hands on approach in steering the reins at the North West Office. Pictured right Ed and Julie are rolling their sleeves up, unafraid to buckle down and replace ceiling tiles. It’s this kind of raw leadership that inspires some of the top agents in our company to call the Northwest Office home.
The Coldwell Banker Northwest Office is nationally recognized for production and professionalism. The sales associates located in this office specialize in real estate across the metropolitan San Antonio area, as well as, the surrounding hill country area. This office has received the prestigious Coldwell Banker National industry awards for “President’s Premier”, “President’s Elite” and “President’s Circle” signifying our sales associate’s strong commitment to each client. Andy Smith was recently featured in our blog for hosting a party for the first 100 clients who closed on their homes since he began his real estate career! Kerry Dike, Rhonda Howerton and Missy Stagers, of the North West Office were also highlighted in our blog for their achievements, being awarded San Antonio Business Journal’s winner of the Residential Real Estate Top Agents.
During the 4th of July a celebratory party for the Sales Associates was held not only to honor the holiday but to let the Sales Associates know much their hard work was appreciated. An array of delicious foods were served including fried chicken, potato salad, beans, chips, peach cobbler, blackberry cobbler and ice cream. This was generously sponsored by Debbie Blackerby of American Home Shield and Tamara of Coldwell Banker Mortgage. In addition, there was festivities and laughter over games of bean bag toss, hula-hoop and water balloons.
Just an example of some of the wonderful feedback we have received about some the Sales Associates over at the Northwest Office is featured here. It’s certainly assuring to know that Julie is so supportive of the Sales Associates and will work to highlight their achievements.
A perfect example of the camaraderie was back in May when Julie held a silent auction for Rich Palacios and his wife Michele who was diagnosed with cancer in 2007. Still in an on-going fight Michele has battled through radiation, bone injections, various medications and treatments while the cancer has metasitized into her bones and now is stage 4. Julie held a silent auction and with the help of staff and Sales Associates alike raised over $4,000. An update of the situation was gathered from the couple’s Go Fund Me account and reads,
“Michele and I have decided to end the GoFundMe account. We are incredibly grateful to each and every one of you who donated!! We feel very blessed! Thank you for all the prayers as well! Thank you for everybody who held a fundraiser to help raise money!
Although our plan did not go accordingly when Michele’s treatment was cut short at the clinic. She will continue to fight her cancer with alternative treatments here at home. She has now been back for about a month and is doing much better!
Michele has an alternative doctor here in San Antonio who she sees on a regular basis and we are also hoping to continue some of the protocols from the clinic she attended here at home.
All the money we received will help pay for these treatments!
As hard as this has been there are so many blessings we have received along the way. This has definitely been a life changing event for us!
Thank you and God Bless!”
