RISMEDIA, September 4, 2008-There are so many ways that Realtors can get involved and help make a difference when it comes to working with home buyers and sellers of all economic standings. From one-on-one navigation through mortgages and financing to ways to cut costs while also saving the planet. For Maureen Kennedy, today’s featured Realtor on the Rise, she’s prepared to dive in and help all clients-”it’s who I am,” she says.

Fast learner: Rather than wait three months to take the agent licensing exam, Kennedy managed to slip into the slot of a no-show at the advice of a helpful DRE staffer.

Fixer upper: Kennedy has earned a reputation for communicating the possibilities inherent in “fixers.”

Kennedy says she is as happy to represent the first-time home buyer as much as the well-heeled matron. “I come from the affordable housing community: I’m a major donor to Self Help Enterprises,” which helps farm workers build homes in the Central Valley, California. She also brought a Realtor’s voice to the policy table at recent meetings on affordable mortgage tools and the “greening” of housing. “It’s who I am,” she says.

Each day RISMedia will introduce you to one of our 50 Realtors on the Rise for 2008, chosen by the editors of Real Estate magazine and selected from hundreds of entries. We congratulate this year’s winners for stepping out of the box, bringing a new outlook and charging ahead through the changed real estate space.
