Arlington Business: Concannon Joins NVAR Board


Genevieve Concannon

Genevieve Concannon, director of Custom Home Division for Arlington-based real estate development firm Smith | Schnider, has been appointed to serve on Northern Virginia Association of Realtors’ (NVAR) board of directors.

In accepting the honor, Concannon said that she hopes to “empower members and fellow Realtors … and continue on the path of innovation and education to help keep NVAR on the forefront of homeownership matters."

Concannon was nominated for the Director-at-Large position on NVAR’s 2015/2016 board of directors to serve a one-year term. She was selected to represent small brokerages, builders and developers, and will continue to serve on the Public Policy Committee and Legislative Review Task Force. Additionally, Concannon will co-chair NVAR’s Public Policy Committee for 2016.

"I detected great leadership skills in Genevieve, which is why I chose her,” said Virgil Frizzell, the 2016 NVAR chairman of the board in a statement. “One of next year’s initiatives will be to enhance our relationship between Realtors and builders. With her professional background and experience, as well as her participation on NVAR committees, Genevieve was an easy choice since she understands our end of the real estate industry as well as newly constructed home sales.”

Concannon says that she’s passionate about sustainability in both home and business development. She is a certified Military Residential Specialist, EcoBroker, EarthCraft Real Estate Professional and Earth Advantage Broker STAR.
