Heart of Texas Chapter - Women's Council of Realtors Innaugural Installation

What a momentous day it was when we were finally installed yesterday, January 25, 2011. It has been 9 years since a new chapter has formed with the Women's Council of Realtors and, as the Heart of Texas Chapter we are proud to be Charter members and a brand new chapter.

Congratulations to all of the 2011 Line Officers - Cristi McGowan - President, Malisa Spivey - President Elect, Ann Cordes - Vice President of Membership, Vicki Gonzales - Secretary, and Cindy Gant - Treasurer.

It was a lot of time and hard work to get to this day and at times we wondered if it was worth all the effort we were putting forth, but I can tell you, I am so glad we preserved and stuck with it. Yesterday was the greatest day, we had Travis Kessler, CEO of TAR as our speaker, and what an amazing speech he gave, but after that the floor was opened and, to our amazement, we had the most wonderful outpouring of love when our sister chapters came forth with donations from their home chapters to help us have a successful start.

The house was packed with over 100 people in attendance. We had dignitaries from all over the state Texas including Sharon Eddings, Texas State Chapter President, VaLois Hounsel, Texas State President-Elect, Sylvia Seabolt, Texas State Treasurer, two of our Texas State Governors, Sharon Morton, & Lois Malone and two of our District Vice Presidents, Karen Carlton, & Gayle Loyd. A most loving thank you to the above and all of the members from each chapter who came to our installation.

It is my personal opinion, but I think that our fellow Waco Realtors and Affiliates realized not only from the start with the tremendous turnout but also with the generosity of our sister chapters that this was no small organization, and this is bigger than they thought. We have high aspirations for our Chapter and we need the support of everyone, so hopefully yesterday was a testimony that won't be quickly forgotten.

Women's Council of Realtors is a Network of successful Realtors empowering women to exercise their potential as entrepreneurs and industry leaders. Their mission statement says it all. Without the help and love of special people from our sister chapters we would have never been able to pull this day off.
The Heart of Texas Chapter Mission Statement - That Realtors of diverse backgrounds and affiliations feel personally welcomed, as a valuable part of the larger WCR family. We invite everyone in Waco and surrounding areas to become a part of our family and we are so excited to watch this chapter grow and unite as a loving and supportive family.
I am so excited grow/learn professionally and personally, also to help other achieve their goals and dreams. Thank you so much for such a wonderful opportunity and all of the friendships that I have acquired through my initial journey into the Women's Council of Realtors.

Women's Council of Realtors Rock and for you Realtors who have no idea how much fun it can be I encourage you to attend TAR's Winter meeting on Friday, February 11th, and come to WCR's Under the Big Top Dinner. Proceeds from the nights event goes back to your home boards and support TREPAC. Come be a part of our family!

Innovative Realty Group, Damon Crelia & Malisa Spivey at The Executive Real Estate Center were Awarded The Prestigious 'Real Estate Online Marketing A

Waco, TX, September 4, 2009, Nationally renowned real estate marketing and technology speaker and® Vice President, Max Pigman, has presented to Damon Crelia & Malisa Spivey of the Innovative Realty Group the prestigious “Real Estate Online Marketing Award of Excellence.” The Award of Excellence recognizes a very select group of top real estate agents who consistently provide outstanding marketing services on behalf of their buyers and sellers.Maximizing marketing exposure for a seller is critical in today’s market: the combination of the Damon Crelia & Malisa Spivey’s outstanding customer service, and the Highly-Touted Seller Marketing System, and premium® marketing services such as Showcase Listing, are just a few of the many ways the Innovative Realty Group is leveraging recent trends in home buyer online behavior to his clients’ benefit.“There are but a select number of real estate agents who distinguish themselves from other agents by doing more for their sellers and buyers – and Damon Crelia & Malisa Spivey are two of them. In particular, when the Innovative Realty Group lists a home, they market it on well trafficked sites such as the #1 ranked real estate site®, plus other high-trafficked Internet sites

including,, Yahoo! Real Estate, and many others. Even simple efforts like having more photos displayed, crafting better property and area descriptions, or adding a full motion video, can make a home stand out from competing properties,” says Max Pigman, Vice President of® - and Damon & Malisa go the extra mile in marketing their properties.The marketing excellence award was presented to Damon Crelia & Malisa Spivey at a recent real estate marketing and technology seminar that demonstrated cutting edge techniques for leveraging the Internet and technology in real estate marketing.Malisa says, “Our clients appreciate how we bring more attention to the unique selling attributes of their home and ultimately help attract more qualified buyers. Buyers are also appreciative of a well presented home that has a better description, and more photos, which allows them more ways to learn about the property before arranging an appointment. We feel it is important to be the source of information. While it’s certainly an honor to receive this award, we believe it is a disservice not to make an aggressive Internet marketing part of the standard home marketing plan.”“The extra steps agents like Damon Crelia & Malisa Spivey are taking on behalf of their clients is the reason we thought it worthwhile to call out the effort we have seen these agents make online and to recognize them for providing these added value services,” says Mr. Pigman.To find out more about the Innovative Realty Groups award-winning marketing system, contact Damon or Malisa at (254) 638-0898 or via email at, or visit their website @
