Semonin Realtors® Names New Managing Broker of New Albany Sales Office
Louisville, KY (January 31, 2014) – Semonin Realtors®, a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate, has announced the appointment of Sara White as the managing broker of the Semonin Realtors® New Albany Office in Southern Indiana, effective January 2, 2014. White is responsible for managing the New Albany office and contributing to the efforts of the Southern Indiana Realtors® Association (SIRA). She will coach, mentor, and overlook the performance of approximately 40 agents, as well as actively recruit new sales associates.
Prior to her work in real estate, White graduated from Wake Forest University where she was a women’s basketball scholarship student-athlete. Her work history consists of a number of leadership roles that demonstrate her ability to manage and mentor. From 1993 to 1997, White worked as the assistant coach for the University of Louisville Women’s Basketball team and then as the co-head coach from 1997 to 2000. She expanded her management skills by taking the position as the Director of Basketball Operations at the University of Louisville until 2002, and then as an Associate Athletics Communications Director at Purdue University from 2006 to 2013.
White first joined the Semonin team as a sales associate in 2002 and was awarded as a Multi-Million Dollar Producer in 2004 and 2005. As a graduate of the Semonin Leadership Program and the Floyd Wickman Real Estate Sales Program, White is considered a highly qualified leader who has exemplified extraordinary passion for the real estate industry.
“It was not going to be easy to find a successor for Billie Dahl,” said Brad DeVries, President and CEO of Semonin Realtors®. “But when the opportunity came to bring Sara White back into the Semonin family after having left the area a few years ago, we jumped at the chance! Sara is a natural leader, a very gifted communicator, an extremely caring person, and a real competitor! Those qualities, along with her proven success in the industry, will be a great benefit for Semonin Realtors and our team in the southern Indiana market!”
“It is a pleasure to be back with Semonin Realtors and an honor to serve as the sales manager of the New Albany office,” White said. “My Southern Indiana roots run deep, as a native of Clarksville with family in the area for generations. I have such respect for the honesty and integrity, commitment to service, leadership and education that is the foundation of Semonin and feel fortunate to have such a great team of Realtors to work with. I’m excited for the future of this office and appreciative to Brad DeVries, Stan White and the entire Semonin leadership team for this opportunity.”
