On August 5, 2021, Coldwell Banker ONE celebrated Broker and founding partner, Betty Phelps, on her fiftieth anniversary as a Realtor.
“We are grateful for the leadership that Betty Phelps has provided over the past 50 years as a Realtor,” said Coldwell Banker ONE Managing Broker, David McKey. “We certainly owe her a debt of gratitude for opening the doors for more women to enter the real estate business and serve in leadership roles in our local, state and national associations. Her success came with a strong work ethic, focus, and a desire to succeed. That is what is required to be successful in this business.”
Phelps started her career as a Realtor in August, 1971 with her future business partner, Durwood Gully. Over the years, Gully & Phelps, Inc. grew to become Coldwell Banker ONE and Coldwell Banker Commercial ONE, full service residential and commercial real estate firms who maintain a legacy of providing leaders in the real estate industry and support for the greater Baton Rouge community.
Over the past fifty years, Phelps remained an active member of the local, state and national Realtor associations, as well as the Louisiana Real Estate Commission. She was elected to serve as President of the Greater Baton Rouge Association of Realtors (GBRAR), Chairwoman of every GBRAR committee, President of Louisiana Realtors (LR), National Association of Realtors (NAR) Board of Directors, NAR Regional Vice President for Texas and Louisiana, and Chairwoman of the NAR Convention. She was also appointed to the Louisiana Real Estate Commission (LREC) and elected as Chairwoman. In addition, Phelps was named Greater Baton Rouge Association of Realtors Realtor of the Year as well as Louisiana Realtors Realtor of the Year.
As a second generation, family owned and operated real estate company, Coldwell Banker ONE is proud to continue the tradition of honesty, knowledge, experience, and excellence, which is the foundation of Betty Phelps’s career.
