President's Message

The Hillsdale County Board of REALTORS® has come a long way since its inception in 1951. We have a bright, welcoming office with plenty of parking in the city lot across the street. We have a Conference Room large enough to provide space for orientation, training and Continuing Education classes as well as special events such as the annual Christmas Party Open House. We now offer electronic key box entry for listed homes, a regular newsletter and many other services to members.

We are members of the Michigan Regional Information Center, (MichRIC), and have an internet-based MLS system with a public access site. As members of this larger group we have representation and participation in decisions that affect us not only locally in the conduct of our business, but on a state and national scale as we grapple with issues that affect the entire real estate industry. Being members of MichRIC keeps us on top of trends and events in our industry. We are represented on theMichRIC Managers Committee and the MLS Specifications Committee. This gives us a direct voice in making decisions that affect our Internet services and our larger businesses.

We are also members of the Hillsdale County Chamber of Commerce, denoting our place in the community as participants and contributors.

The Board strives to be noted for vision and cohesiveness; for clarity of thought and inclusiveness. We strive to maintain ever-expanding services to members and work hard to help members be more effective business persons and community leaders.

The Hillsdale County Board of REALTORS® has come a long way and welcomes its members and the community to be part of its continued progress.

Sincerely,

Christie Plemmons, President
