The year wrapped up on a very high note for Christine Dean of His Security, as she was named 2018 Strategic Partner of the Year by the Women’s Council of Realtors, Knoxville chapter.

Dean, marketing and business development director for His Security, was honored for her work with the group and for chairing the WCR’s September Fashion Show, which is its largest annual fundraiser.

“Christine did a great job leading that committee,” WCR president Beth Bledsoe said. “It was a very busy year, and she worked with 10 other women on planning, set up and coordination.”

Additionally, Dean worked on several other WCR projects and committees, Bledsoe said.

It is Dean’s fourth year with the WCR, and she said she “did not expect” the award.

“I love this, but I don’t own it individually,” she said. “I was helped by a whole lot of other people, and they all really worked hard, too.”

Dean also credited His Security owners Scott Brockamp and Doug Fraker with helping.

The WCR is comprised of Realtors along with a number of individuals and businesses that support their work. His Security is just one such outlier company that partners with it.

“We have a circle of great partners, such as individuals in the mortgage and title fields, and many others that help us do our jobs smoothly,” WCR president-elect Robin Aggers said.

“All of us who are involved provide needed services, such as security,” Dean added.

Additionally, “we are able to develop professional and personal relationships among our members locally and nationally that help us all,” Aggers said.

WCR also provides its members many resources in return, such as continuing education opportunities.

“(The WCR) helps us not only advance within the industry, but also supports one another and develops professional acumen,” said Aggers, who noted the WCR “really focuses on its members as independent business people.”
