I’m Brad Anderson, I have served on the board previously as a local director, President and past President. I’ve been a member of the golf committee putting together our great golf! Past REALTOR of the Year, and if you didn’t already know, an agent at REMAX County Wide 1st. ! I take my career and my roles with the board very seriously!

I have been a real estate broker with REMAX County Wide 1st  for many years.  As well as being a broker, I work part-time in the county assessors office and I also am a member of the Washington Township advisory board. I volunteer for a nonprofit company that raises money for ALS and have been in charge of many local fundraisers. I enjoy reading to pre-schoolers once a week and find the break from adult people to be refreshing! I have been married to my husband Jeff for 22 years and we have two sons in college. I'm finding myself with extra time on my hands with the boys being grown and felt this was a great opportunity to get more involved with my career and board.

I am a Real Estate Broker with Coldwell Banker 1st Choice in the LaPorte and New Carlisle offices. My career began in 2010 and 2012 became a full time agent. Now I am licensed in Indiana and Michigan while holding my Senior Real Estate Certificate.  I joined the Board at a Director in 2014 and this will be my 2nd term at treasurer. In 2017 I graduated from the IAR Leadership Academy and was named Realtor of the Year by the LaPorte County Association of Realtors. I am very active in the LPCAR Deserving Children Charity, WCOE Roof-Sit and LaPorte Moose Lodge #492. Born in Chicago, my family moved to LaPorte County in the early 70’s and has been here ever since. I enjoy spending time helping others and with my family. I am looking forward to continuing to serve on the board and eventually at the state level.
