The PIN Magazine March 2017
Dear Esteemed Readers,
We just concluded Black History month, and in spite of the history of this country I really appreciate that we have an entire month dedicated to the celebration of the lives of African Americans and their contribution to our society. African Americans have achieved just about everything you can imagine in technology, science, sports, literature, and medicine. We are unique in our origin and the pathway in which we came to this country, and since our arrival to this great land we have been part of the fabric of these United States and continue to contribute in significant ways.
Where we fall short is in the area of homeownership, and unfortunately, that is just one of the many areas in which we fall short of our potential and the expectations that many of us have for ourselves. It is with this in mind that we have put on the cover for our March issue a notable African American female who has made it her passion and her career to serve the African American community by helping them make their American dream of homeownership a reality.
Her name is Courtney Johnson Rose. Courtney is the Principle Broker of George E. Johnson Properties, the brokerage division of George E. Johnson Development, Inc. In 2007, Courtney was selected by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and the Realtor Magazine as one of their “30 under 30”. You can read more about all of Courtney’s accomplishments in this issue of TPIN Magazine.
Also in this issue, we highlight both the ten top influential women in the United States and women who are dominating the real estate industry. We spotlight Kathy L. Moe, the new FDIC regional director, as well as Desiree Patno, another strong voice in the real estate arena. Women continue to surpass men in just about every metric when it comes to jobs, politics, and education. Read about “The Top 10 Influential Women In America” in our March issue.
As always, I like to leave on a positive note and with a thank you. Women’s History Month has always symbolized to me the strides we have taken as a nation. I believe women’s rights are just as important as any other rights. My motto has always been that behind every successful man is a successful woman.
I am so excited about what is in store for us here at The Power Is Now. Coming up on March 23rd, I am hosting a Homebuyer’s Workshop with Fisher Realtors in Richmond, California. If you are in the area, please come out and learn about zero-payment home loans. This is a FREE event you do not want to miss.
Lastly, thank you for your continued support and readership. Our team is dedicated to you. We want the best from you, so we are dedicated to giving you the best of us. Please take a moment and share this magazine. Knowledge is power, and The Power Is Now.
