Nicolle Davis, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices
As an Associate Broker and Branch Manager with a large, family-owned 18-office brokerage, I focus on delivering best-in-class, tailored bottom-line results. My twins brought me to real estate 8 years ago. Today I manage about 40 agents on our roster, and have appreciated 3 years serving on the CVAR Grievance Committee, as well as serving 2 years on the Pro-Standards Committee. My pre-real estate bio includes Fortune 500 financial accounting experience, and extensive sales and marketing experience.
It would be an honor to serve CVAR and my colleagues through a Board of Directors position. Thank you for the opportunity to make changes and move more people forward together!
