PBN: Were you surprised to learn you had been selected for this award?

BUTLER: Yes, it was a total surprise and a huge honor to be included in this elite group of commercial Realtors from across the country.

PBN: You’ve been actively involved with a number of real estate-related associations for many years. How has belonging to these types of groups enhanced your career?

BUTLER: It has certainly heightened my awareness of the issues confronting our industry on a national and state level. It has given me a chance to work with, and build lasting relationships with, some very talented people that truly care about our industry and make a difference in all of our livelihoods. Many of my clients and commercial real estate contacts have remarked positively about and shown support for my efforts. There have been so many other benefits that it is difficult to list them all and how they will positively and permanently affect my career, but one of the highlights is being involved in strategic-planning sessions for the next five years with nationally noted professionals.

PBN: Any advice for those just starting out in the real estate field?

BUTLER: Whether you are just starting out or have been around for a while, I strongly urge you to get involved with your local, state Realtor or MLS boards. The rewards are enriching, far-reaching and long-lasting, and the time is easily manageable. In essence you will get back much more than you give. •
