A new feature in our REcap this year is a weekly spotlight of our elected leaders. We want you to get to know the volunteers who have devoted their time and talents to serve our industry and our members. Next up, is Director, Cristian Sanchez. Cristian is a graduate of MCLA and studied abroad in Shanghai, China and Florianopolis, Brazil learning the different cultures and the ways in which they conducted business. He brings this background to the Board of Directors in his second year as a director. He began his career in real estate just one year after graduating college when he began a local real estate investment company focusing on improving distressed properties. His love of the real estate industry contributes to his desire to assist the Berkshire County members through his involvement on the Board. He is an associate at Cohen & White Associates in Lenox. Fun fact, Cristian can speak English, Spanish, conversational French and conversational Portuguese and as his online profile states, you can find him working with his clients, playing soccer and eating Espresso Cookie ice cream on his down time.
