Bill Edge of Man-Edge Properties is the 2017 Vice President of the Houston Independent Real Estate Brokers Association. As a longtime member of this organization I look forward to helping my fellow agents and Houston as a whole. I have served on the Board as an officer before and the experience working with Houston’s finest REALTORS® was truly rewarding.
Volunteering with HIREBA and committees of the Houston Association of REALTORS® serves to remind me that we as REALTORS® can make a difference in people’s lives. I like to think that the number one trait of a good REALTOR® is caring about people. In our society we so often forget it is not about the money we earn in life but the lives we have made better that makes for a meaningful life.
The Houston Independent Real Estate Brokers Association (HIREBA) functions as a learning center designed to further advance the professional development of the already highly-skilled and experienced broker. The group meets twice a month for a breakfast meeting featuring a speaker. Agents have the opportunity to network with industry professionals from leading real estate brokerages while letting them know about our new listings.
