Cecelia Sage of White Plains, a realtor at Long & Foster Real Estate, was one of 22 graduates from the Maryland Association of Realtors’ 16th annual Leadership Academy honored at ceremonies held in Annapolis recently.
The Leadership Academy was formed to help Realtors understand the important role they play in their community and the need to enhance the leadership skills, knowledge and competencies, according to a Maryland Association of Realtors press release.
The Southern Maryland Association of Realtors, one of sixteen local Realtor boards and associations in Maryland, is an advocate of this program.
