Realtor of the Year
PLATTSBURGH — As the Clinton County Board of Realtors (CCBR) celebrates 65 years of providing confidence to both the buyer and seller of real estate, almost one half of its membership gathered in Plattsburgh to recognize Roger Wright of Coldwell Banker/Whitbeck Associates as the 2012 Clinton County Realtor of the Year.
He was recognized for his service to his community and his fellow Realtors and was given an engraved pen and presentation case.
Wright, a resident of Saranac, is active in several local municipal, church and foundation boards and planning committees and is currently serving as the 2013 Clinton County Board of Realtors president. His leadership throughout Clinton County earned him this distinction among his peers. Statewide, he was recognized this past February at the New York State Association of Realtors midwinter meetings in Albany.
On Oct. 11, 1948, the Clinton County Board of Realtors was the 47th board established with the New York State Association of Realtors “to better serve the public, to improve business ethics, to benefit public welfare, and to study local conditions and real estate problems.”
The group continues to meet these goals today as a strong association of local men and women living in the communities they serve.
PLATTSBURGH — The Clinton County Board of Realtors (CCBR) recently named Michael Coughlin as their association executive to oversee the day-to-day management of their association and the associated Adirondack Champlain Valley Multi Listing Service (ACV MLS), with which many home buyers and sellers in the North Country are familiar.
Coughlin, a 20-year resident of Plattsburgh, has a distinguished career in fund development, grant writing, communications and general operational management.
“I feel I bring a new, fresh perspective to the Realtor Association and have thoroughly enjoyed my first few weeks,” Coughlin said.
On June 26, New York Association of Realtors Board President Margaret Hartman will be honored at a luncheon in Plattsburgh. At that time, the 2013 Clinton County Board of Realtors scholarships will be announced. Each year, depending on applications submitted and governed by specific rules, the CCBR awards a $1,000 college scholarship and a $500 CV-Tech scholarship.
