MEET THE 2016 EXECUTIVE OFFICERS

Marci Browne, President

In 1999 I began my career in Real Estate with American Dream Properties and 3 years later I obtained my Broker License and opened America's Choice Realty. During the time I operated my business in the city of St. Louis, I was an active member of both the Middle of The Mitten Committee, and St. Louis Downtown Development, where I enjoyed working on the many projects and events. Then in 2007, I made the decision to relocate America's Choice Realty to the Village Shoppes Building, located in downtown Ithaca. Currently I've been serving a second term on the Board of Directors for the Central Michigan Board of Realtors, a member of Membership Committee & Equal Opportunity Housing Committee. Additionally, I'm a member of Ithaca Downtown Development, an Ambassador for the Gratiot Area Chamber of Commerce & board member, Co-Chair for the Gratiot County Princess Ball Event, Chairperson for the Ithaca Promotional Committee, CMAR representative on the Greater Gratiot Development board and a member of the Alma Area Business & Professional Women's Association. In 2009 I was presented with the Woman of Achievement Award, in 2011 I was presented with the Ithaca Area Person of the Year , and in 2012 I was presented with the Central Michigan Association Realtor of the Year and was very humbled and honored to receive all three of these awards. Working fairly & honestly and helping to grow my community has always been my number one goal.

In addition to serving as a Director, she is also a member of the MLS Committee and By-Laws Committee. Meredith currently resides in Alma with her husband, Richard, and two of their daughters, Emma & Sophie.

Randy Golden, REALTOR Director
Jon Rhynard, REALTOR Director

Member of RE/MAX Executive Club 2009-2010. I have been a REALTOR for the last 12 years after being in the car business. I love to drive and see all the beauty of the USA. I have two great kids who are now grown and married young adults. I am married to Lori, our AE. Real estate is a great career, but it has gotten to be more of a challenge due to financing/appraisal challenges. I love working with 1st time buyers and helping them achieve the dream of home ownership. Also, I like having other jobs to go along with Real Estate. I don't like to sit in the office and wait for the phone to ring. I just like keeping busy. I am looking forward to being on our Board to help us move forward into, hopefully, a more harmonious Association.

Paul Bigard, REALTOR Director

Paul Bigard has been a licensed real estate professional since 1990. Paul is the Broker/Owner of Paul Bigard Real Estate, LLC. During his career, Paul has earned the Certified Relocation Professional and the Graduate of Real Estate Institute designations.

Adam Vibber, REALTOR Director

Adam served the community as a coach for years. He has past experience in running a restaurant chain in the Mid-Michigan area. When not working Real Estate, he enjoys spending time with his wife and 2 kids. He is excited in his 4th year of Real Estate to serve on the Board of Directors.
