2018 REALTOR of the Year
In September I was honored by the Ann Arbor Area Board of REALTORS as the 2018 REALTOR of the Year. That was never a goal of mine and I find myself both honored and humbled by my peers.
Everyone knows a REALTOR, but not all REALTORS are the same.
With a last name of Lands it only seems natural that I have become a REALTOR. If you are considering buying or selling a property in Michigan I know I can help you succeed. So when you think of real estate you should always think of LANDS!
I have been learning throughout my entire life to get to this point in my career in real estate. To learn more about my industry and better serve my clients I have taken classes to become an; Accredited Buyers Representative (ABR), Graduate of Real Estate Institute (GRI), Certified New Home Sale Professional (CSP), Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES), GREEN (for environmentally minded agents who have taken & passed the required course (by the way I have been driving Natural Gas Vehicles for over 11 years now), Associate Broker, & most recently I have become a CRS (Certified Residential Specialist , the learning is never done).
I am in my 22nd year as coat drive coordinator for my office, during the past 21 years we have collected, cleaned, & distributed over 20,000 coats to over 30 local organizations for less fortunate individuals. For over 11 years I have been a volunteer at a local retirement center as a driver of the bus taking out the R.O.M.E.O's to various local eateries (many times using my own full size natural gas van as the bus). I was a Cubmaster while my Son was young and an Assistant Scoutmaster while he was a Boy Scout. I am a Notary, was the 2017-2018 President of the Saline Rotary Club, & recently awarded the REALTOR of the Year for my local Board (out of roughly 1,000 members).
I am very proud to be a REALTOR. Ethics, loyalty, integrity, hard work & being of service are foremost to me. I come by these traits from the great role models throughout my life, both my parents loved to serve. My Dad, a man who changed the world with his knowledge of Biochemistry & my Mom with endless Love for the world volunteering at church and throughout the community. My Grandfather was also a huge role model for me, at the age of 77 while working for Max Brook Realtors (now a sister company to Reinhart) he was honored to be named REALTOR of the Year for his local Board of REALTORS. He officially retired from being a REALTOR when he was 84 years old. I hope you will give me the chance to help you until I am 84. In 2004 the Washtenaw County Home Builder awarded me with a huge honor, their Pillar Award for Real Estate Professional of the Year (I have only gotten better since then).
When You Think of Real Estate, You Should Always Think of Lands! Then call me, my phone number is 734/ Mi-LANDS. I look forward to meeting you in person someday.
