As a local Realtor my vision for the future of our community includes increased opportunities for property owners of all backgrounds in Northampton and surrounding towns. Diversity in ownership enables our community of residents, homeowners, and local businesses to thrive.
Because I believe in the importance of committing to equity and social justice for the long-term, and because I understand that lasting change manifests from a series of meaningful actions, some actions I will be taking this year include:
- Amplifying Local Action: promoting awareness of local housing issues and the organizations and people that are leading the way in making change
- Commitment to Community: seeking out and amplifying opportunities to contribute to Northampton’s community vitality, specifically housing justice initiatives in the area
- Financial Contribution: a portion of each commission I earn will go towards individuals, groups, and organizations committed to uplifting members in our community
- Diversity, equity, and inclusion: continuing my own education in diversity, equity, and inclusion, particularly as they relate to housing in/justice and the role Realtors, real estate agents, and the real estate industry have played in creating hurdles to ownership while focusing on dismantling those systems and creating pathways to ownership.
I understand my role as a Realtor affords me unique opportunities to get involved as a member of and for members of my community and I am really looking forward to learning and growing with all of you. I invite you to visit my blog for updates on this work in 2022!
