Christi Borden is newly elected director for HAR
HOUSTON, TX – October 5, 2009 – Christi Borden, Realtor with Prudential Gary Greene, Realtors, was elected to the Houston Association of Realtors (HAR) Board of Directors for 2010. Borden was elected for a two-year term, which is effective on January 10, 2010. She was elected in the category of largest firms.
Borden and other elected board members and officers will be installed on Wednesday, December 16, during the annual REALTOR® Celebration at the Hilton Americas Hotel in downtown Houston.
One of her goals as a director is to meet with the managers and brokers of the largest firms in the community and find out how she can support their needs. “Also, one of my main goals is to advance the level of professionalism in real estate and raise the bar in terms of training and brokerage oversight of agents,” Borden said. She is excited to represent the Katy area, one of the hottest real estate markets in Houston. She looks forward to bringing the unique concerns of the area to HAR and the leadership board.
Borden joined Prudential Gary Greene, Realtors in their Katy office five and half years ago. Enthusiastic about working in the Katy office, Borden loves the professional culture of Prudential Gary Greene. “We have an incredible work environment and team support that makes it a joy because real estate can be stressful. It’s great to have that team support behind you. I’m working with collaborators instead of competitors,” she said.
As a Certified Relocation Professional, Borden enjoys acting as the conduit for information and resources to her clients and getting them settled into the Katy community. She and her family lived abroad before she was a Realtor, and she is aware of the special stresses and needs of relocation families.
Borden is also a Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) and is trained to work with incoming and outgoing buyers and sellers. Her other designations include GRI, ABR, TRC and ALHS. She also begins her second, three-year term on the Board of Directors of Texas Association of Realtors.
Active in her community, Borden is involved in Prudential Gary Greene’s sponsorship of Sunshine Kids. In the Katy office, Borden and other staffers are preparing the fourth annual Katy Sunshine Fest, which raised more than $30,000 in 2009. She also supports Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure®, and she is a supporter of the Krause Center in Katy.
