Why does Curt wish to be a Director:
Curt has a proven track record of success as a REALTOR® and management level licensee. He will have his broker license in one to two years.

His inquisitive nature loves to understand how things work and he always wants to know how to change and improve in real ways without upsetting the current balance. If it works keep it. If not, take small steps to fix it. As a smaller non-franchise brokerage, Curt is versed in what that type of business deals with. They need support in ways that he assumes is provided by those with franchises. That said, he thinks all brokerages need support. Rather than focusing on the negative, Curt thinks they need to find out how they can navigate this future with real positive perspective, together. Curt has spent a lot of time finding the pulse of real estate. It is an ongoing effort. Curt would be fortunate to have the opportunity to learn and contribute as a Director. Our Board leadership has been great and he hopes to be part of that. Navigating the future to facilitate the growth of his member’s business and interests while bringing real value to consumers. Curt thanks you for your time and consideration!
