2017 BRR President Katrina Wehr

Katrina Wehr, managing broker at Keller Williams Realty Boise, was named 2017 President of the Boise Regional REALTORS® (BRR) during the association’s annual installation ceremony, held December 16th at the Boise Depot.

Wehr had this to say about her new role, “2017 is going to be an exceptional year for Boise Regional REALTORS® as we continue our mission of providing members with resources for conducting their businesses successfully, ethically, and professionally. My challenge to the members of BRR, the Board, and myself is to expect more of ourselves in 2017 than we accomplished in 2016 — success is never found in mediocracy. Here are a few of my goals… First, inspire BRR’s leadership and members to double their efforts in advocating for private property rights and issues important to our industry. Second, focus on promoting the value of REALTORS® to the public. And third, encourage REALTORS® to utilize the wealth of information at their disposal, to better understand the national and local market trends, and abide by a strict Code of Ethics. I look forward to achieving these goals and serving the members of BRR in 2017!”

“Katrina has a tremendous commitment to professionalism and integrity in all aspects of her career and volunteer work,” said Breanna Vanstrom, BRR’s Chief Executive Officer. “And her grasp of our industry’s issues and opportunities will allow BRR to proactively identify and address the needs of local REALTORS®, which in turn, benefits consumers who are looking to own, buy, or sell real estate in the Boise region.”

Year-End Message from 2016 BRR President Carey Farmer

Hello BRR Members!

As your 2016 President, I’d like to thank you for all of your hard work and support this past year. I truly enjoyed my year leading the organization, but it was definitely a group effort.

I wanted to take a moment to remind you of just some of our accomplishments in 2016:

BRR Summit ISBI Ad - 6.2.16

On a personal note, I wanted to share two of the goals I set for myself this past year:

                                  • My first goal was to do more business in 2016 than I did in 2015, proving to all members that being involved in leadership and being a successful REALTOR® are not mutually exclusive. I did it, with help from many of my fellow members, who were on the other side of the transaction. Thank you!
                                      • My second goal was to engage more members in volunteer leadership at BRR for 2017. We achieved that by placing 15% more members in a volunteer role next year than we had in 2016. I am excited to see so many more of you giving back to the association, and I promise you, you’ll get more out of it than you know!

2016 BRR President

I could not have experienced these successes in 2016 without help from all of you; the amazing people at my brokerage, Group One Sotheby’s; my Buyer’s Agent Extraordinaire, Alexa Head; and of course, my husband, Cole.

I look forward to a great year in 2017 under the leadership of our new President Katrina Wehr, and I am excited to continuing to serve BRR as the Immediate Past President and your National Director. If there’s anything I can do to help you in the new year, please don’t hesitate to let me know. Again, thank you!
