The Charleston Trident Association of REALTORS® just announced the graduates of the 2015 class of The CTAR Leadership Development Program. Sixteen local REALTORS® completed the program, which is designed to provide those with interest in taking a leadership role in the Association and their community the education and training to enhance and develop their leadership skills. Two dunes properties agents from our Isle of Palms Office, Ginn Maiers and Susan Petty, were among the graduates.
The two-month program includes three sessions, each focusing on a different aspect of leadership development: teambuilding, communication, community activism and effective leadership. Speakers for the various sessions include local business and community leaders like Cindy Grosso of Charleston School of Protocol and Etiquette, Mt. Pleasant Town Councilman Mark Smith, Chris Zoeller of the Post and Courier, CTAR President Matt DeAntonio and President-Elect Michael Sally. The program’s keynote address was delivered by Elizabeth Colbert Busch at the final session.
“We designed this program to help our members develop their leadership and communication skills, which will help them not only if they choose to pursue a leadership position with the Association or in the community, but also in their day-to-day business. We provide the opportunity for our members to learn from those who have achieved success in real estate as well as other industries” said Wil Riley, CEO of CTAR.

Where is your favorite restaurant in Charleston and what do you recommend there? Edmunds Oast and the Fresh Charcuterie Board.
Have you read any good books lately? I recently read Boomerang by Michael Lewis and really enjoyed it. It gives a great perspective on other countries and how they were impacted during the recession.
Susan is South Carolina born and raised. In the south, there is a commonly used acronym…GRITS…”Girls Raised in the South” or perhaps men might say it stands for “Gentlemen Raised in the South”. Since she was a skinny little 2 year old, she often visited the coast for family vacations. It has always been a lifelong dream of hers to live near the coast. In 2005, that dream was met when she moved to Hilton Head. In 2015, she then moved to Mt Pleasant to be nearer her family and the Charleston coast. Because living near the coast of South Carolina has been a dream come true, her goal is to help make that dream a reality for others who share in the dream of living on or near the coast. There is nothing finer than to live in South Carolina…just ask any GRITS.
Where is your favorite restaurant in Charleston? I have two favorites: Burton’s Grill in Mt Pleasant and Long Island Cafe on Isle of Palms. What do you recommend there? Everything! They both have a fabulous menu of scratch made, locally inspired foods of fresh ingredients.
What is your favorite activity? Taking my grandchildren to the beach to play in the sand and waves.
Have you read any good books lately? The Magic by Rhonda Byrne
Do you have any pets and if so, what are their names? Two years ago I adopted an adorable Schnauzer via the SPCA in Orangeburg, SC. He was skin and bones when the county dog catcher picked him up, but I saw his potential when I spotted his photo on PetFinder.com. I decided to name him Walker, not because he and I love to walk together, but because The Church of the Cross in Bluffton, SC has a pipe organ that was made by JW Walker & Sons, Pipe Organ Builders of England. While living in Bluffton, I sang in the church choir. I love music of all types but especially praise and worship songs. For that reason, I thought it would be nice to name my “fur baby” after one of my favorite musical instruments.
