Vice President - Bill Briggs, Residential Realtor, AO Real Estate

As Bill Briggs travels home to Hilliard, Ohio, he reflects on the day’s activities and finds self-satisfaction in knowing that he respectfully and courteously approached the day with his client’s best interest, at heart. “Facilitating a positive and enjoyable buying or selling process, is how I define my expectations. Once this is accomplished, then I consider my responsibilities to have been met and my job well done!”


Secretary - Bill Cavanaugh, Retirement Funding Solutions

My family and I have lived and worked in Dublin for 20 years and I’ve been a HECM Consultant for 14 of those years. I have a passion for helping our Baby Boomers effectively manage their home equity as they move into their retirement years.

I became a member of GDRA a little over a year ago and have met some great people who work in and around the realtor and building businesses. I am looking forward to working with this great group of realtors and affiliates as Secretary in 2017. Dublin is a great place to live and GDRA does so much to help not only the realtor community, but the community at large.

Website Master - Sonja Heffner Keller Williams Consultants

I’m beginning my 28th year as a Realtor in 2017. The first 10 years I was a Realtor in Michigan. 17 years ago I joined The Greater Dublin Realty Association & I have been an active member ever since.

I have served as Vice President, President, Sgt at Arms & now Web Master for the 7th year. Much has changed as we are now able to do most things from our website. Take a look at how we have changed! You can join, donate, view the latest golf outing video, connect to Facebook & search for members.

My real estate career has taught me a lot about the value of personal relationships. I am proud to serve this association & consider all of you family. Last year our group was over 350 members strong! We have the largest number of Realtors of any current association in the Columbus MLS! Don’t hesitate to contact me about our website.

GDRA is a well-attended meeting with both affiliates, Realtors, & other real estate related service providers who come together to sell properties but have become a close group of friends. Our hearts are large & our welcome warm as we do life & work together. I’m proud to serve you.

Social Media Coordinators - Missy Chaffins, World Class Title

Giving back is extremely important to me. It is that commitment to our community which led me to my position as an account executive at World Class Title. It's that commitment which led me to GDRA. Giving back is what sets the Greater Dublin Realty Association above and beyond. To work closely with colleagues and affiliates in a positive environment has been more fulfilling than I could've ever imagined. That being said, it is with great pride, I jump on board as a Social Media Coordinator, next to my dear friend Dave McKee. I'm very excited to see what goals this group of incredible members can accomplish in 2017! We all know, GDRA rocks! And if you don't know - join us and find out!

Past President Advisor - Davyd Miller, President, CEO - Odd Jobs, LLC. - Past 2016 President of GDRA, Current Board Member

It was an honor to serve as the 2016 President of this association of Realtors and Affiliates who are committed to helping our neighborhoods thrive and to giving back to our community. My relationship with GDRA began in 1998 and with the real estate & mortgage industries in 1996. In addition to being President & CEO of Odd Jobs, a Handyman and Remodeling Services business, I have my commercial real estate license with RE/MAX Town Center &
have held a real estate license since 2006.

I believe that honesty, passion & a sense of purpose for being in our industry, strong communication & delegation skills plus an even stronger sense of humor are vital to the success of our business. Those of you who know me also know the value that I place in community service. I am proud to serve the GDRA membership as they are among the friendliest, hardest working group of socially committed individuals I have ever had the privilege of working with.

To that end, I have also been honored to serve as 2015 immediate past Vice President of GDRA, a board member of the Buckeye Ranch & the coordinator of the New Albany Realty Association's golf outings. I co-chaired the 2014 Jack Hanna event and the 2015 Dom Tiberi Maria's Message fund raiser event for our GDRA community. I believe that everything begins with building good relationships & I look forward to serving our team again this year.
