Missouri REALTORS® are not only real estate professionals, they’re so much more. They dedicate their time to serving on school boards, in elected positions and volunteering their time to make communities a better place to be. They’re educators, serving on panels and facilitating industry discussions. Their philanthropic efforts are inspiring and the difference they are making within their communities is significant. Our Member Spotlight series highlights these efforts and introduces some of our wonderful members!
This month, we are shining the Member Spotlight on Vanessa Leisure.
As a board member of her local Children’s Center since 2014, Vanessa Leisure, REALTOR® with Curtis & Sons, Inc. in Nevada, has dedicated her time to helping children in her area since moving to Vernon County in 2013. In 2016, Vanessa was named board chair of the Children’s Center and has served in that position ever since.
During her time with the Children’s Center, Vanessa has helped found the Children’s Center Annual Trivia and Mouse Race Night. This event is an annual fundraiser that boasts a live mouse race, trivia night and auction to raise money for the Children’s Center of Southwest Missouri. Donors can sponsor a mouse, the races themselves, or auction items. In 2018, the Annual Trivia and Mouse Race Night raised $52,695 for the Children’s Center.
If you’re in the community spotlight or know someone who is, let us know. We’d love to shine our Missouri REALTORS® Spotlight on you!
