Sable Homes celebrates Women in Construction Week, Sales Manager Karin Kay’s PWB Hall of Fame Award

In honor of Women in Construction Week (March 5-11), Sable Homes is proud to work with so many women who have found their calling in the construction industry, whether they are direct Sable Homes employees or contractors we work with based on project needs.

This year, Sable Homes celebrates all our women construction workers and the work they do for our company and our clients every day. We would also like to recognize Sable Homes Sales Manager, Karin Kay, on receiving the inaugural Professional Women in Building Hall of Fame award in December 2022.

The PWB Hall of Fame award is a leadership award created to acknowledge and celebrate a longstanding PWB member for their long-term involvement and consistent dedication to the organization and its mission. Kay was chosen for the Hall of Fame award by the PWB Executive Board.

“While Karin met the requirements for this award on paper, she certainly earned the award in many ways,” said Stephanie Snowden, PWB Council chairwoman. “She is one of very few members that have been involved since our PWB Council was established in 2018, and has been a consistent and active member and volunteer throughout this entire time and has served on the executive board and various committees throughout the years.

“This was the PWB Council of Greater Grand Rapids’ first year of doing member awards, and Karin was the perfect candidate to receive our first-ever Hall of Fame leadership award.”

Additionally, Kay was honored by Greater Regional Alliance of Realtors (GRAR), and received the Committee Service Award for her work on GRAR’s Government Affairs Committee, also in 2022.

This award is given to a GRAR member for consistently attending meetings, providing valuable input and ideas, exhibiting a positive attitude and enthusiasm, providing outstanding volunteer service, or for outstanding programming. Kay and her fellow Government Affairs Committee members were recognized for contributing countless hours to GRAR in addition to their own schedules.

“Government Affairs Committee members spent many long days interviewing candidates running for local and state elected positions and recommending those that would further the rights of private property owners and not encumber a Realtor’s opportunity to do business – this is quite a responsibility,” stated GRAR leadership. “This year was exceptional. These members should really be viewed as the warriors and protectors our real estate industry.”

Congratulations, Karin, on both these achievements, and your continued dedication to empowering women in the construction industry.
