Not your average Realtor…
“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” – Helen Keller
One of the core values of my business and now my brokerage, B Realty, is celebrating community. Real estate is all about investing into your community, literally. Focusing on how I can make an impact within an area that has done so much for me is the least that I can do.
Real Estate Organizations
As a Realtor, it is important to me to stay active within our organizations. I have been a member of many “boards” all of which have improved my understanding of all types of transactions as well as solidify relationships with other professionals within our industry. My involvement includes, but is not limited to; Pro Standards Committee, Community Involvement Committee (CIC), Grievance Committee, MLS Committee and Co-Chair for the Butler County Real Estate Council.
I have used my growing social media presence to focus on the community. Beginning in 2019, I started monthly videos that highlight anything from a local organization that provides support for cancer patients and their family to a local art studio that offers inexpensive courses for the community to find their inner artist. Wichita, KS and surrounding areas is bustling with amazing businesses and organizations!
I have found two ways to donate to the community this year that are a little outside of the box. First, I have a cotton candy machine and annually donate cotton candy to local events like the St. James Ice Cream Social, Witches Night Out & more! Additionally, the cotton candy machine is free for anyone to use and has been the highlight of many of child’s birthday party.
The second is a little more unconventional. Since 2016 my husband, Walter Burress, a local farmer of Augusta, KS plants a sunflower field and once the flowers are in bloom the field is free to entry for all, and is sponsored by me. People from near and far drive to enjoy the two weeks of bloom ready to capture that perfect Instagram-worthy shot. We love getting to see and talk to people who come to enjoy the field for the two weeks the field is in bloom.
