always around us
I recently moved to being an entrepreneur and started my own RE Co, called Mint Steer, and was surfing net for updates across the world. I happened to click on to IRED (what now I understand to be an associate site) where i got this sombre message of Becky Swann passing away. This was the first time I heard of her and since then(about 24hrs ago) i been reading about her. And gather she was a phenomenon as a professional and a devoted homemaker rolled into one.
I wish the family all the strength to bear this loss and to the thousand of others who knew her and looked upto her. And as a Hindu and believer in afterlife I am sure she would be up there and would feel happy if all, the family/ colleagues continue as she would have wanted them to do so when she was around.
Take care... A Friend in sorrow- Ashish Sharma, Mint Steer India Financial Consultants

I thought I was alone in 1995 when I began practicing single agency... "For Buyers Only." Shortly after that, as computers became more prolific, I discovered Becky on-line and was thrilled when we struck-up an on-line relationship. I felt very blessed when she accepted my company in IRED as a Exclusive Buyer Agency! She was definitely a pioneer and I feel blessed to have known her through IRED! I send my sincere condolences to all of her family! Sincerely, Janine J Wilson, Broker-Founder (A Buyer's Best Choice Realty in TriCities TN)

Shine on, you spunky redhead! Thank you and IRED for educating buyers that they don't have to settle for less than a "true agent" when they are ready to make one of the biggest investments of their life. You were a tireless advocate for home buyers and a significant force in helping buyers understand what we do.

Becky's enthusiasm and spirited life was an encouragement to all who knew her. Becky was in a small group of Buyer's Agents I met at a NAR convention in 1989. Becky invited a small group of us to meet and share together. Becky was a strong influence that moved me into Exclusive Buyer Agency. She has had a special connection and relationship with many EBA's in Massachusetts for many years. I was privileged to know her and pray God's grace and peace for those who mourn her death. She now rests in Christ's peace awaiting the great resurrection and future reunion when we shall all meet together again. We love you Becky Swann.

Worked with Becky on several projects back in my Exclusive Buyer Agent days and with NAEBA. Was inspired by her early pioneering with before most people even had a website. She was always willing to help anyone, whether it benefited her cause or not. She will be missed, and remembered.

People come and go...some with more fanfare than others. Becky is certain to leave behind a larger mark than most will ever know. She was a titan of the exclusive buyer agency movement, and will be missed and fondly remembered.

I'm so sorry to hear of this loss--to her family, community, and to exclusive buyer agency and the real estate profession. Becky was a major influence and example to me early in the days of exclusive buyer agency and the National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents.

Jim, I was so sorry to read of Becky's passing in this morning's newspaper. You and I worked together at IBM Lubbock from 1968 to 1973. My wife, Alice,died in 1999 and I have since re-married and live in North Richland Hills. I know what you are going through now. It does get better with time if that is any consolation. I have fond memories of you and Becky from our time in Lubbock.

Her obituary was posted to my facebook page with these words: "An amazing woman to whom the EBA movement and all advocates of true agency in real estate are forever indebted. God keep her; and God, thank you for letting us have her for awhile." Not surprising to see that she worked to restore her downtown. Beyond Grapevine -- and even Texas (to which I only recently migrated) -- she was a giant working to restore character to a major sector of American business.
