WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- The Women’s Council of Realtors has tapped a Somers businesswoman as president of its Empire Westchester Business Resource Network.
Patricia E. Palumbo, a real estate agent with the Somers brokerage of Houlihan Lawrence, will lead fellow members in Westchester, Putnam, Rockland and Orange counties, and parts of the Bronx.
Palumbo, who joined the council shortly after earning her real estate license in 2009, said she was “extremely grateful” for being chosen and was also “incredibly proud to lead this collaborative organization of exceptionally talented and hardworking individuals.”
Seeking a place with mentorship and resources, Palumbo said she joined the organization after being impressed by its strategic partnerships and outreach programs.
She began volunteering at various events and eventually became the group’s secretary.
Through that and other roles, Palumbo said she has been able to interact with members of the group and the communities they serve.
“I refer to myself as a Rolodex because I’ve been in touch with almost every kind of ancillary business that goes with real estate,” she said.
Palumbo also played a major role, the organization said, in last year’s fundraiser -- a concert with the original cast of "Jersey Boys" that raised money for the Wounded Warriors Project.
Palumbo will serve through the 2016 caldendar year and spearhead the organization’s next fundraiser in the spring.
Theresa Crozier, president of the council's New York chapter, presided over Palumbo’s installation as president on Thursday, Nov. 19, at the Glen Island Harbour Club in New Rochelle.
Crozier is an associate real estate broker from Houlihan Lawrence’s White Plains brokerage.
