JODIE OSOFSKY (Salt Lake Board Seat)

Signature Real Estate Utah - Realtor® Member (21 Years)

I have lived in Utah my whole life and have spent the last two decades helping people with their real estate needs, locally. Real estate is in my blood. I can't imagine doing anything different. My goal is to give back to my Realtor family, as I have gotten so much from them. We serve the public (our clients) every day in our industry, whether that is helping them buy or sell a home, or advocating for their personal property rights and other community issues like affordable housing. We need to work diligently to protect the public as well as integrity in our own community. I have served on many committees over the years, including grievance and professional standards, government affairs, and the charity committee. I have LOVED every opportunity to be involved in helping protect, improve, and educate our fellow Realtors and affiliates in our industry. I welcome feedback, suggestions, and concerns from our members. I will bring those topics forward to the board of directors in a thoughtful conversation that looks at all perspectives and possible outcomes. Education and continuing to grow our community are crucial to our future as an industry. I seek out the opportunity to advocate for my fellow Realtors and our community every chance I get. I look forward to working hard for you all!
