RISMEDIA, June 20, 2008-The Council of Real Estate Brokerage Managers (CRB) selected Mo Anderson, CRB, GRI of Austin, Texas as this year’s inductee into the Hall of Leaders. The award will be presented at a special reception and dinner during the REALTORS® Conference & Expo on Friday, November 7, 2008 at the Renaissance Orlando Resort.
Anderson joins an impressive group as a driving force in real estate. She established her first real estate office, a Century 21 franchise, in Edmond, Okla. in 1975, soon after it was the third top-producing office out of 7,500 Century 21 locations in North America. She joined Keller Williams in 1991, when she opened the first KW franchise outside of the state of Texas.
She quickly moved on to become the regional director for Oklahoma and co-owner of the two Keller Williams market centers in that state. In 1995, Anderson headed up Keller Williams and helped them grown from 35 to more than 600 offices. Since then she has served as president and CEO, and now vice chairman.
The Hall of Leaders Award was established to honor CRB Designees whose significant contributions continue to shape and influence the real estate industry locally and nationally. Past inductees include Ebby Halliday, CRB, CRS, LTG, Joseph F. Hanauer, CIPS, CRB, CRE, Dave Liniger, CRB and Gail Liniger, ABR, CRB, Art Godi, CIPS, CRB, CRS, GRI, William A. Watson, Jr. CRB, GRI, J. Lennox Scott, CRB, Richard Mendenhall, CCIM, CIPS, CRB, e-PRO, GRI, and most recently Harley E. Rouda, Sr., CRB, GRI of HER Real Living.
As with other past recipients of this award, Anderson is a committed and generous volunteer in many community causes. She is also a strong advocate for women in business and has been named twice as Oklahoma’s Women in Business Advocate of the Year by the U.S. Small Business Administration. She was also named a 2006 REALTOR® Magazine Good Neighbor nominee.
“Mo’s success is not by accident or luck. Passion, leadership and innovative vision are just a few of many characteristics that make her a respected industry leader. Her generosity of time and talent have enhanced the profession and her community. We are so pleased to honor her with this prestigious award,” says Ginny Shipe, CAE, chief executive officer of the Council of Real Estate Brokerage Managers. “Mo has absolutely demonstrated that leadership is about action not position.”
