BROOKE Michel-Yussim

The Danberry Company

Why do you want serve as Director: I served at some level on the Coos County Board of Realtors from my first year in real estate. I served on my first committee at the Oregon Association of Realtors shortly thereafter. I am still involved at the state level teaching GRI classes on Zoom. I learn so much from my colleagues and feel this is a way for me to give back to the Realtor community. I also enjoyed assisting my board in giving back to the community by providing grants, doing local events, and creating public awareness of how, as a group we contribute to home ownership and community development. I would like to be a board member to stay involved and up to date in my new community. Being on the Board is the best way to learn and give back simultaneously.
