ERA Key Realty Services COO/President Cheryl Eidinger-Taylor has been named a 2018 recipient of Banker & Tradesman’s Women of FIRE award, denoting women in finance, insurance and real estate who are “the most talented, the most ambitious, the most innovative and the most philanthropic” in the industry.
“Cheryl’s exceptional leadership, her contributions to the industry and her community involvement make her highly deserving of this special recognition,” says Charles F. Hunt, COO/executive vice president, HUNT Real Estate Corp., which ERA Key merged with in 2017. “She is an outstanding example of what can be accomplished in this industry through hard work and determination.”
After coming to the company more than 27 years ago, Eidinger-Taylor and ERA Key have been honored with numerous recognitions, including the Momentum Award as the fastest-growing ERA franchise in 2012, and the Gene Francis Memorial Award as the Top All-Around Company within ERA in 2014. ERA Key has also been named a Top Place to Work by The Boston Globe three times (awarded second place in 2016), and Eidinger-Taylor was one of six women to receive a 2017 Outstanding Women in Business Award from the Worcester Business Journal. She previously was a recipient of the publication’s “40 Under Forty” award.
Eidinger-Taylor has been on the Board of Directors of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) and on the Massachusetts Association of REALTORS®’ Agency Law Task Force, which created new consumer disclosures for real estate. She is a member of the Boston Chapter of the Women’s Council of REALTORS®, and has served as chapter president. She was also an officer in the ERA Agents Council, and a member of the Real Estate Buyer’s Agent Council (REBAC) and the REALTOR® Association of Central Massachusetts.
Most of Eidinger-Taylor’s community involvement is through her agency, which has given $341,282 to dozens of charities through The ERA Key Realty Services Charitable Trust Foundation since its inception in 2004. In addition to contributing annually to the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), the fund has donated to food pantries, senior centers and dozens of other charitable groups.
