Wendy Rosenfeld and Rick Smaile both recently celebrated their 2nd anniversary with us at Boulevard and we couldn’t be happier to have them here! Wendy and Rick both joined us shortly after Hurricane Harvey so they really were a bright spot for us after the storm. We hope these two would have eventually made their way to Boulevard regardless, but it was Harvey and factors surrounding the storm that truly pointed them in our direction.
Wendy decided to come on board with us after visiting what became the Houston Relief Hub—a citizen-led hub for donations, volunteering, and relief formed in the aftermath of Harvey—and hearing our broker/owner Bill Baldwin’s presentation on real estate and recovery less than 10 days after Harvey. She witnessed many Meyerland neighbors having their homes flood and wanted to be a part of the solution.
Rick was one of the very first volunteers at George R. Brown Convention Center (GRB) as it became a shelter and relief center for thousands of Houstonians in need in those first few days after the storm made landfall. Rick became part of the core group leading the charge at GRB in those first few days, and then went on to co-found the hub with Bill and that same group. When it came time to return more of his focus back to real estate, working alongside like minded, community focused people like those at Boulevard was a natural choice for Rick.
We are so glad to have Wendy and Rick on board. Congrats on two wonderful years here and we hope to spend many more together!
