The recipient of the 2017 REALTOR® of the Year award was in attendance at the Installation of Officers and Awards Celebration on January 19th to perform her duties as the outgoing president of the REALTORS® Association of Metropolitan Pittsburgh. However, she did not realize that her presence would play a larger role in the festivities of the afternoon. With her friends and colleagues gathered in the audience, Charlene Haislip was presented with the REALTOR® of the Year honor by the 2016 ROTY recipient, Preston Moore.
Ms. Haislip, of RE/MAX Realty Brokers in Squirrel Hill, served as president of the association during 2017 after working her way through the ranks of the RAMP leadership roles. She has served on the Board of Directors since 2012, served two terms as Secretary-Treasurer and one as President-Elect. Charlene has been active as a member of the Board of Directors at the Pennsylvania Association of REALTORS® for several years and is a Director to the National Association of REALTORS® during 2018.

While Charlene has always shown interest in the activities of the Government Affairs Committee, 2017 saw her play a key role in dealing with issues that affect our industry. Char became a familiar face at Pittsburgh City Council chambers during the Association's battle against the increase in the realty transfer tax.
Ms. Haislip's experiences with RAMP have convinced her to be a champion for the Association. In her "past life" before real estate, she was a production manager at WQED and worked on many documentaries. She has used her filmmaking talents to produce two videos for RAMP that are used to show the benefits of being a RAMP member.
Congratulations to Charlene Haislip on being the 2017 REALTOR® of the Year!
