The Park City Board of Realtors (PCBR) has elected a new round of leadership including a new president, president-elect, secretary, treasurer and two new board members. The newest members of the Board of Directors were officially installed Jan. 10 by Kenny Parcell, past-president of the Utah Association of Realtors.
"This is exciting, stepping into this role,' said the new president, Resort West Realtor Jeff Spencer. "I want to be able to help members in real ways, making this organization even more successful."
Former president Tami Whisker stepped down earlier this month and Spencer took up the reins, continuing the legacy left to him from past presidents, but also hoping to incorporate some of his own ideas in the coming months.
Spencer moved to Park City in 1996, graduating from Utah State University and working for Deer Valley for a year before he became a Realtor. The first home he sold was a sight-unseen to a Kansas buyer, and ever since he has been serving owners of luxury second homes in Deer Valley and Park City.
"As our market firms up, so is our membership," said PCBR Executive Director Curt Singleton, adding that growing the number of Realtors in the organization is a trend he expects to see continue this year.
"We're starting a lot of new projects this year," he added. " We're looking at increasing our offerings to members, especially technologically It is all about our members, about what we can offer.
Since assuming his new role, Spencer has set up a committee specifically to look at membership value and benefits for the organization.
"One of our goals is to find technologies to make life easier, from online forms to e-signatures," Spencer said. "I could show you a property on my iPad from the car, write the offer, sign it and email it to you from one device. It's about simplifying the life of an agent, making their business more efficient. Let's slim down and streamline the process for buyers."
Marcie Davis is the new president-elect, Deb Hartley the new secretary, Nancy Tallman the new treasurer and Marc Coulam and Suzanne Sheridan added as the two new directors.
