Here at Hodnett Cooper Real Estate we not only have the most talented group of agents but also the most giving. Since January 2015, Realtor, Carly Oxenreider has brought a new meaning to corporate charitable giving through her program, “Paying It Forward with Property”. She donates 10 percent of her personal commission at the end of each sale to a charity of her client’s choosing.

The Holiday edition of Golden Isles Magazine recently did an article on Carly’s giving demeanor. In the article readers discover that Carly’s passion for giving back started long before she came to Hodnett Cooper Real Estate, For her 40th birthday a few years ago, while living in Los Angeles, she asked family and friends to commit to completing random acts of kindness such  handing out coats to the homeless or buying someones meal at a drive through window. We could not be more thrilled she brought her Real Estate talent and giving heart to Hodnett Cooper in 2014 . We look forward to many years of working along side this talented, selfless woman.

Carly hopes more real estate agents will follow her lead and create their own way to pay it forward. Maybe we can all take note from Carly’s example. With the holidays approaching the needs of others become more visible. There are so many opportunities to give back regardless of where you are.

Every month this year, Hodnett Cooper Real Estate will be presenting the “Roy Hodnett Positive Person Award” to one team member in the Brunswick office and one team member in the St. Simons Island office. The award can be given for any number of reasons that fall under the “positive person” umbrella. For example: helping a fellow employee with a difficult situation, participating in a charitable event, rescuing a dog, covering the front desk for a sick employee or taking food to a family in need. The award winner is the person that never says “no” when someone needs assistance, or the person that always makes you smile. The award recipient chooses the next month’s recipient based on those criteria.

Last month’s recipients, Carly Oxenrider, of our Brunswick office, and Emily Holcomb, of our St. Simons Island office, nominated and awarded the recipients for May:

Melissa Johnson – as Carly describes, “I chose Melissa because every day, no matter how busy she is, I am always greeted by her smiling face at the front desk. She remains positive, even when things are not going well, or as expected. Melissa consistently exceeds expectations,” said Carly.

Holly Ponsell –Emily Holcomb passed the award to Holly Ponsell for her leadership and astute business skills. “Holly is a great businesswoman, and is always helpful in coaching and training our newer agents,” said Emily.

Missy Neu, Hodnett Cooper Real Estate, GIAR REALTOR of the Year 2014

Missy Neu, Hodnett Cooper Real Estate, REALTOR of the Year 2014

 

At the recent Golden Isles Association of Realtors (GIAR) 77th Annual Awards Gala, Missy Neu was honored as REALTOR of the Year. This is the third time Missy Neu has been awarded GIAR’s Realtor of the Year.

Each year, GIAR accepts nomination ballots for REALTOR of the Year. Eligibility criteria include a combination of factors including business accomplishments, high standard of ethics, civic activity and participation in the local, state and national associations.

“Missy Neu has worked tirelessly on her own book of business, is helping to develop better business practices for her fellow agents, continues to better the community and has made a significant impact on issues surrounding our industry on a local and national level,” said Pat Hodnett Cooper, Owner and Broker at Hodnett Cooper Real Estate.

In 2014, Missy sold over $7.3 million in real estate and had 18 transactions. As Hodnett Cooper Real Estate’s Vice President of Business Development, Missy’s reach extends much further. She led a group of agents through two Business Development Boot Camps designed to improve agent success through training, mentoring and technology. Missy was instrumental in Hodnett Cooper joining the invitation-only network of independently owned real estate firms, Leading Real Estate Companies of the World. With Missy’s leadership, Hodnett Cooper Real Estate increased its sales volume by over $30 million in 2014 over 2013.

Missy Neu not only serves Hodnett Cooper, she is dedicated to REALTOR associations on a local, state and national level. Most notably, Missy spearheaded efforts to reform the Biggert Waters Act, which significantly impacts coastal Georgia real estate. Missy lobbied to alleviate the unfair ramifications of flood insurance increases on homeowners. She worked directly with Congressman Jack Kingston and his staff to champion repeal and reform of the national legislation.

Throughout the year, Missy’s involvement in the Golden Isles Association of REALTORS, Georgia Association of REALTORS and National Association of REALTORS is vast. She chaired committees, served on numerous committees, and attended conferences and summits. “Because of her involvement, no one has a better grasp on the multitude of issues facing the real estate industry today,” said Pat Cooper.

In addition to her role at Hodnett Cooper and her association involvement, Missy believes that our success as individuals and companies is dependent on the health of our community. Missy contributes to that health by serving on the Board of Directors of the Brunswick-Golden Isles Chamber of Commerce and serves on the Executive Committee, Property Committee and is Vice Chair of Governmental Affairs. She was appointed to the Brunswick & Glynn County Economic Authority Board of Governors—the first woman to serve on the Board. Missy was also Co-Chair of the High School Graduation Blueprint Implementation Commission and served on the College of Coastal Georgia Service Learning Advisory Board. She also contributes and volunteers to a number of local charities.

 

“Missy Neu is an invaluable member of the Hodnett Cooper Real Estate team. Her knowledge and commitment enhances our entire team,” said Pat Cooper.

 

Hodnett Cooper Real Estate, Inc. is pleased that Missy Neu was awarded REALTOR of the Year by the Golden Isles Association of Realtors.
