Jon Larrance, Vice President of Perry & Co. Real Estate Professionals was elected last week to be one of three new board members to serve as a Director of the Denver Board of Realtors. His three-year term begins October 1, 2009.
Jon (below) will be joining Perry & Co. Agent Dave Browning (right) who last year won his spot on the Board in a landslide election, completing a strong year that also saw Dave selected as the Board’s “Rookie Of The Year” for his outstanding service and sales abilities. In the past year, Dave has been a strong voice on the board vehemently resisting the push to raise Realtor dues.
Upon learning of his 2009 election, Jon said, “I’m thrilled to be elected to the Denver Board and am eager to get to work for my fellow Realtors. Many of the agents in my own office know about my passion for using technology to help build their business and my interest in marketing Denver, as well as our world-renowned ski towns, as an international second-home destination.”
As a Manager at Perry & Co. for the past five years, Jon holds a company-wide viewpoint, as well as an agent viewpoint. “I’m the first to admit I don’t have a lot of sales under my belt, but I believe my experience as a manager gives me a unique perspective for the Board.” Jon also serves as a member of the Executive Committee for the Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate Board of Regents. He has spoken at several Luxury Real Estate national conferences about the importance of building an international brand even if you’re a local, boutique company, like Perry & Co.
Jon created and manages Perry & Co.’s Internet Response Team, the Perry & Co. Blog, Facebook, and Twitter sites. He’s a one-man SEO for the Perry & Co. website and the number of visitors to their sites continues to climb. One of Jon’s pet peeves is the lack of objective reporting in the regional news media about the real estate market, so he tries to find articles from a balanced perspective to link to from the company sites. This recently resulted in a Denver Post reader commenting that they look to Perry & Co. for the “facts” on the local market.
Jon will be serving on the Board of Directors along with other newly elected Directors, Charles Roberts of Your Castle Real Estate, and Greg Geller of Vision Real Estate. The standing Directors include Lon Welsh, Justin Knoll, Michel Brossmer, and Amy Cesario, who will all serve in the upcoming year under President-Elect Mark Trenka.
