Industry News | Local News | NAI SunVista News
NAI SunVista aims to exemplify community involvement, influence, and culture. So it is incredibly rewarding when one of our own is recognized within our community for doing just that. This year, Martha Carpenter was honored as one of Albuquerque Business First's Women of Influence. This prestigious recognition is awarded to women in our community who "are passionate, ambitious and motivated to make both their industries and communities the best they can be."
We asked Martha a little bit about what an award like this means to her. Read through her Q&A below:
Who has been YOUR biggest influence?
My biggest fan/influencer has been my best friend Sherri Wells. She is always telling me I can do anything, and she believes it. She continues to encourage me to reach out and just do it. It's funny, but she thinks I can do everything I set my mind to do.
What was your reaction when you found out you had been named a Woman of Influence?
I couldn't believe it. I don't look at myself as an Influencer. I like to help women grow their confidence and grow in their careers. It's like seeing your children succeed, it's exciting. Therefore, I've never thought of myself as a Mentor, only as a friend/mother to these women.
What does an award like this mean to you?
I'm very honored to receive this award. I know that there are so many women out there that are doing the same thing as I am and they also deserve this award, so let's don't forget about all those women as well.
What future plans do you have in your professional life that will help you continue to be a positive influence?
Right now, I am focused on Mentoring my Partner Lisa Mercer and her career in commercial real estate, and my other big focus is the CREW Mentorship program. It's a great program for up and coming commercial women, helping them advance in their career.
Congratulations Martha on this well-deserved recognition. We are proud to have you as a part of our team!
