Member Spotlight: Anthony Flores

Anthony Flores“Anthony Flores at Keller Williams Realty Boise is simply amazing. He hosts a bowling tournament every February raising over 10k for charity (Angels Anonymous is the biggest recipient). I know not everyone knows how much work goes into setting up a fundraiser, but it’s a tremendous amount of work. It’s really cool that he takes time away from his business and family to assemble such a production. The fundraiser is wicked fun and a great way to give back to the community!  He’s a rockstar in my book!”

— Katrina Wehr, BRR Immediate Past President, REALTOR® with Keller Williams Realty Boise

Member Spotlight: Krista Deacon

Krista Deacon_resizedKrista Deacon gets the concept of servant leadership. When I was a newer broker and the office was growing quickly, Krista took some time to help me figure out what I needed to do to keep from imploding. When it comes to problem-solving, Krista always approaches the issue with the attitude of, “how can we solve this problem in a way that works for everybody?” She is the consummate ‘quiet professional.'”

— Ed Sperry, BRR Director and Designated Broker for Equity Northwest Real Estate

Member Spotlight: Lynn Bradescu

Lynn Bradescu“I am recommending Lynn Bradescu for the Member Spotlight. She has been a REALTOR® for over 10 years, is good-natured, fun-loving and hard-working, which is reflected in her approach to life and real estate. Lynn is a founding member and CEO of 100ADA, a non-profit that helps small, local non-profits that need fundraising assistance. To date, 100ADA has gifted over $60,000 to Ada County non-profits! She truly believes that this is her way of “paying it forward,” and considers it an honor to be in the position to accomplish this small change within her community.”

— Carolyn Sinnard, BRR Director and Designated Broker for Happy Dog Realty

Member Spotlight: Heidi Hartnett

Heidi-4984“I selected Heidi Hartnett because, as Katrina says, it’s all about the ask. But it’s also all about the answer, and Heidi answers. I spoke to her about serving on BRR committees, and now she volunteers her time on two committees. She regularly attends industry events and is always seeking knowledge to serve her clients better. Heidi is tireless in her pursuit of what is in the best interest of her clients, never failing to put their needs above all else.”

— Debbi Myers, BRR Director and Managing Broker at Front Street Brokers
