GENEVA LAKE WEST CHAMBER NEWSLETTER
April 6th, 2021 | Issue 9

The Geneva Lake West Chamber of Commerce continues to provide regular updates and information for all of our newsletter subscribers and chamber partners. If you have business or community updates, events, or other informational items to share please let us know! Let's work together to keep The West End a great place to work, live, learn, celebrate, and grow!
A Word from the Director - Greg Gaskins
Members and subscribers to our newsletter, 2020 was a year like no other in recent memory. I know that individuals in your community stepped up and went above and beyond during the Pandemic, either as a front line worker or the clerk stocking the shelves at your local grocery or the neighbor that checked on everyone, just to make sure they were alright.
I ask you to look around you and if a person has met some or most of the criteria for Citizen of the Year, take a moment and email me their name and reason for the nomination. We are looking for individuals who:
  • encouraged and exemplified the virtue of good citizenship;
  • touched or enriched the lives of others, particularly those who are vulnerable or less able to help themselves;
  • shown ongoing initiative, leadership and dedication;
  • devoted themselves to sustained and selfless voluntary service;
  • earned the respect of their peers and become a role model in their field;
  • demonstrated innovation or creativity in delivering lasting results.
Take some time out of your day and please nominate someone in your community that has made a real difference in the past 12 months. Plaques will be presented at the GLW Chamber Luncheon on Wednesday, May 5, 2021 at Abbey Springs in Fontana. Nomination forms can be obtained by visiting the GLW Chamber website www.genevalakewest.com or contacting the Chamber at 262-275-5102. The deadline for submitting nominations is Tuesday, April 20th 2021, so follow the link below to vote.

About @properties
Established in 2000, @properties was built around a simple but elusive concept: provide brokers and clients with the highest level of service in the industry through cutting-edge sales and marketing programs and a culture that values innovation, relationships and a strong local focus.
In less than 10 years, @properties became the #1 brokerage firm in Chicago. We then expanded to the surrounding suburbs and quickly grew into the largest independent broker in Illinois. Ultimately @properties Wisconsin was born with the understanding that our vast network of Chicago-area clients provided a great advantage to Lake Geneva buyers and sellers and vice versa. 
Today @properties is one of the top 11 residential brokers in the U.S. by sales volume and one of the fastest-growing brokerage firms in southeast Wisconsin.
As a locally-owned, independent company, @properties is deeply committed to supporting the communities and clients we serve. We’re constantly evolving, but remain focused on that one simple idea behind our founding. Contact @properties today and let us provide you with the very best experience in real estate brokerage.
