December 15, 2014 – Associated Realty of the Americas www.areamericas.com 1-520-625-9207 is a Real Estate referral organization, founded in 2007, consisting of fully vetted, committee approved members who believe that it requires a team to make any successful transaction. They are people of proven character and integrity, who are at the pinnacle of excellence in their chose profession. Many of our members are active in their local, regional and state-province and national boards of real estate where they provide quality leadership in an ever changing market place.
This year AREA has chosen two members to share the title of being “Member of the Year”. They are Terry Wunderlich of Terra Firma Global Partners located in Napa, California and Dennis Badagliacco, Legacy Real Estate, located in San Jose, California.
Terry was chosen for the leadership she demonstrated as the 2014 Co-Chair of the AREA Retreat, which was held in October in Napa. As Co-Chair, she, together with the leadership of AREA, was responsible for coordinating all of the activities of the group in Napa. In September an earthquake hit Napa causing wide spread damage and great fear of its aftermath. A week after the event, Terry wrote an amazing letter to all of the members of AREA telling them that the recovery was well underway and the city was open for business. This act, alone, caused many members, especially those on the East Coast, to bury their fears and to ultimately attend the event. The result was that a record 70% of the membership came to Napa. Then, as Retreats go, it was much more than flawless. It was spectacular. AREA honors Terry for her significant contribution by naming her Co-Member of the Year for 2014.
Dennis Badagliacco is not an attorney but he probably could have been. As the member liaison to both the National Association of Realtors© and the California Association for legal issues, Dennis is on top of the latest and most significant legal issues affecting real estate professionals. As an adjunct to those duties, he is a regular contributor to the AREA Monthly Business Call-in and edits a column for the Monthly Newsletter. His expertise, coupled with an engaging style full of wit and insight, has made his participation an important ingredient of the AREA experience. For that effort, AREA is proud to announce that he has been named Co-Member of the Year.
