Brandi Cook named 2013 Aiken Realtor of the Year [Aiken Standard, S.C.]
(Aiken Standard (SC) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Dec. 13--The 2013 Aiken Realtor of the Year is Meybohm's Brandi Cook.
Cook was announced as the recipient of the honor at the Aiken Board of Realtors holiday party on Thursday evening at The Reserve Club.
She was praised for the time and effort she gives to the association and the community.
Cook volunteers as a member of the board of directors for the Aiken Board of Realtors, is a member of its education committee and devotes her energy to the MOMS Club of Aiken. She also was involved in the past with Camp Puzzle Palooza, an extension of the Aiken Family Y, which caters to children who have mental or physical disabilities.
"She quietly makes a difference in people's lives and doesn't take credit for it," said Laraine Clark, who was the Realtor of the Year for 2012.
Cook has been a Realtor since 2004, and said she wanted to work in real estate since the age of 18.
It is in her blood. Her mother, Vikki Crossland, is an Aiken Realtor, too.
"It is truly an honor," Cook said. "To even be nominated ... and nominated by an agent from another company. It's nice when your peers think so highly of you. I would not be where I am today without the community of Aiken Realtors."
Crossland said she certainly was a proud mother.
"She (Brandi) really does care. She really believes in doing the right thing. She's Miss Ethics," Crossland said.
Other recognitions on Thursday were given to board Executive Director Kristyne Shelton, who was honored for her commitment to the Board of Realtors, and to sitting board President Diane Miniard for her many contributions this year, including her part in initiating a partnership with Aiken County Habitat for Humanity for its 25th anniversary build.
Haley Hughes is the news editor for the Aiken Standard. She joined the newspaper in 2007 and covered the Aiken County government until her promotion in 2013. Hughes, a graduate of Middle Tennessee State University, hails from Knoxville, Tenn.
