Board of Directors

Breezy Anson- – Pine Valley Realty

“For the past 15 years of being an active real estate agent I have seen the real estate market pendulum swing back and forth. It has been a fun and wild ride at times. The last 3 years of being one of the Utah Central Association of REALTORS® Board of Directors, I have enjoyed working with real estate professionals in our industry, and have become friends with several of you.
I’ve taken my current role as your UCAR Board Member with respect and appreciation, and will continue to do so if re-elected. I will continue to put the association first to insure its continued success.
When I’m not representing my clients; in my free time I’m involved in my home town of Alpine’s trail committee, designing and building new multi-use trails, building homes in Guatemala with the Hirsche Homes Foundation, and racing in endurance triathlon and cycling races. However, my absolute favorite is watching my amazing wife succeed in her career, cheering on my 8 year while he competes in his swimming races, and seeing his excitement while he’s catching fish, as well as chasing my ever so rambunctious 2 year old.”

Stephanie Bagley- Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Elite Real Estate- American Fork

Wow! What an honor it is to be nominated to be on the Board of Directors. I am truly humbled by the nomination and feel blessed at the possibility to serve in this capacity. I have been an actual REALTOR® for almost 6 years, but have been surrounded by real estate my entire life, as my parents have been and are REALTORS® as well. I grew up in the life of real estate. I absolutely love being a REALTOR®. Next to being a wife and a mom my real estate career is my pride and joy.

I am a wife of 21 years and a mom to 4 beautiful kids, 2 girls and 2 boys. Through the years of being a mom I have been a hockey mom, a soccer mom, a gymnastics mom, and the jury is still out on what kind of title I will hold while supporting my 8 year old in his passions. While supporting my sweet daughter who has played competitive soccer for 7 years now, I was voted in to be the President of the soccer club she played for. I didn’t know much about soccer, but I knew I was organized and willing to do whatever was needed to help keep the wonderful club that 200+ kids played for going strong. In the 3 years of running the soccer club I learned so much and made so many friends who have now become life-long friends. Last year our smaller club merged with 2 other clubs and we are now the largest soccer club in Utah County, Utah Arsenal FC. I now serve as the region director for the club. I was also PTA President Elect for my children’s elementary school and went on to serve for two years as PTA President. The experience of working within the school and so closely with teachers, the principal and other parents was one I will never forget.

I think it’s safe to say that I like to stay busy and enjoy challenging myself in new ways. When my youngest was about 1 year old I felt it was time for something new. I had always been interested in the real estate business, having grown up with it, and decided that while I was home with my little guy I would start taking the classes and see where it led me. With the support of my family and friends, especially my husband and my father, I hit the ground running. I thought I would just start slow and sell a home or two over time, but I started selling like crazy and loved every minute of it. By far my favorite part of real estate is the people I meet and the friendships I make. I have met so many amazing people on this journey including fellow REALTORS®. I am amazed every day by the people I get to work with. I know at times REALTORS® can get a bad rap, but I have only met the fantastic ones!!! I would truly consider it a blessing to be able to serve my fellow REALTOR® friends in this capacity.

Jennifer Belliston- RE/MAX Equity

I have been a licensed REALTOR® since 2006; I am currently the Associate Broker with REMAX Equity in Provo. While obtaining my Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science, I worked as a Transaction Coordinator. I have had the privilege of serving on the Social Committee for UCAR over the years. I am a RPAC contributor and believe strongly in what they do. I am a committed and passionate real estate professional who prides myself on putting the satisfaction of my client’s and my fellow REALTORs® above all else. I truly believe that working together is an important characteristic of a REALTOR®. I enjoy helping others and seeing them thrive in their careers and personal lives. By serving those around me, and continuing my education, I am better positioned to help my peers in their pursuit of career advancement and knowledge in this ever-changing industry. I continuously strive to model a positive example of professionalism, hard work and dedication for those I meet.
On a personal note, I am a mother to three little ones and a wife to a wonderful man. I consider myself lucky to have the family I do; it is through their support that I have been able to accomplish all that I have and continue to do, personally and professionally. It is my goal as I serve on the Board of Directors to continue to be an example to my peers and to my family.

Luke Kochniuk- RE/MAX Equity

I love giving back; life is better when focused on others.

I like to solve problems, but I prefer to proactively prevent them so my team can focus on productivity. I have served as a Scout Master for several years. My favorite memories with the scouts include spear making & catching a rattlesnake for dinner. When not eating snakes (it only happened twice), I am working hard on my Real Estate Business. I am a Co-Organizer of Multi-Family U, Provo/Orem Chapter, an education & networking group for investors; it is a great way to connect with the community. I have been an active board member of the South Jordan Chamber of Commerce.

I find great enjoyment in coaching and developing others in business. I have had the opportunity to own several companies in my career and guided many business owners on their path to profitability. Through these unique experiences I have learned to connect with people, become customer orientated, and understand the importance of empowering others to reach their full potential.
I absolutely loved my transition into real estate. I believe the skills I have acquired through my many years of business experience has helped me be a positive and influential member of the real estate community. I was presented the 2018 Utah Central Association of REALTORS® Rookie of the year and continue to learn every day. I have a very proactive energetic personality which benefits those I work with by ensuring that their needs will be taken care of.
I love gaining knowledge from others that have excelled in the real estate industry. I know the importance and appreciate the effort that goes into making quality classes available. I have been a member of the Pleasant Grove chamber of commerce and the Pleasant Grove library foundation. I have participated with the CARE-cuts refugee event and the Hope Humanitarian fundraiser dinner.
My greatest joy is in serving others and my real estate career has given me plenty of opportunities to do this. I look forward to serving the Utah real estate community and improving my skills each year in the profession. As a member of the UCAR board of directors I will enhance the REALTOR® image by professionally working with others, protecting property rights and continue to improve our image in the community.
