Next-Generation Leader

Samantha Plomer, 29, says it has always been her nature to seek challenge and opportunity. That’s clear from her list of leadership accomplishments, which includes Houston Association of REALTORS® YPN chair, Region 14 Texas REALTORS® Political Action Committee trustee, and 2019 president of her Women’s Council of REALTORS® chapter. "I’ve always wanted to have a seat at the table. You’ll never, ever find me chilling in a corner," she says.

Plomer uses her leadership positions to recruit newer agents into association involvement. "I love to help younger agents identify roles they may be good at. From public policy, to MLS, to RPAC, there are so many ways to be involved."

This can be difficult, says Plomer, as these agents tend to be busy "paddling and paddling, trying to get their businesses afloat." To pique their interest, she focuses on the value that REALTORS® provide, such as fighting for affordable flood insurance premiums, advocating for housing affordability, and HOA transparency. She reminds her fellow agents that "as agents retire, it’s up to our generation to keep the industry going."
