Wasatch Life Realty - Realtor® Member (11 Years)
I am Brian Summers, Principal Broker at Wasatch Life Realty. I have been a member of the board for 11 years and have been involved in several committees. I own and manage my own brokerage. We are a small brokerage that operates as a team. A significant portion of the membership of the Salt Lake Board of Realtors is small brokerages and single broker members. I hope to be a voice on the board of directors for these small brokerages.
In my personal life I love getting out and being active and serving in my community. I give back by coaching runners at a local high school. I also love competing in Olympic-distance triathlon. Last year I competed in Lausanne, Switzerland for Team USA at the ITU World Triathlon Grand Finale. I am driven, set goals, and will stop at nothing to get them done.
In serving at the board, I have noticed a disconnect from agents coming out of real estate school and real world business practices. I want to make a difference in our industry and really raise the professionalism of agents of the board by helping to bridge that gap. I have helped and continue to help agents start their careers. It is one of the reasons I started my own brokerage. I can bring insight and unique perspective to the board of directors through my experiences in both my personal life and in the industry.
Additionally, often times we get caught up in being competitors but we are definitely better when we cooperate and communicate in working together to bring our industry's professionalism to the next level. Much like I strive to achieve my own goals it brings me even greater joy to help others achieve theirs! It is on these fundamentals that I operate my business and I know I can help implement them at the industry level as a director.
