We chatted with a member of the Professional Standards Committee member Betsy Green, Coldwell Banker Realty, to find out more about her career path, why she volunteers and more.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN THE INDUSTRY?

It makes sense because it affects 100% of people. Also, there are three generations of my family immersed in the real estate business.

I have performed hundreds of short sales and successful mediations, have given great consultations to over 700 happy clients and more.
WHAT HAS HELPED YOU MOST TO GET WHERE YOU ARE TODAY?
Using my brain. I tap into other professionals and listen to them when I don’t have all the answers. Also, team work, hard work, faith and determination have helped.
WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT YOUR CAREER?
My colleagues, being able to have freedom with work schedules and being exposed to any kind of real estate and clients I wish to work with.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE OTHERS WHO ARE LOOKING TO TAKE THEIR CAREER TO THE NEXT LEVEL?
Focus. Design your plan based on what you envision.
WHAT DOES VOLUNTEERING MEAN TO YOU?
A lot. It made me a more informed and experienced professional with valuable information I can share with consumers, clients and the staff I hire.
WHAT HAS BEEN MOST VALUABLE TO YOU/YOUR BUSINESS SINCE YOU GOT INVOLVED IN OUR INDUSTRY?
Serving as a mediator.
