Charles Byers “Why I Joined the Chamber”

Maria Atkinson, BROKER

“I joined the Clairemont Chamber of Commerce because I love the Clairemont community. It was my very first home when I moved to San Diego in the early 1980’s. My daughters and their families still live here.

Although through real estate I have been able to serve the wonderful residents who make Clairemont their home, it's time for me to get involved with the businesses here too. I have had the opportunity to meet many business owners, hear great ideas, help support one another, and network together to help all of our businesses grow and prosper. I have just loved it! I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this dynamic group of professionals and make some new friends too!”

~ Judy Spady, Team Spady Real Estate

“I joined the Chamber of Commerce after starting a business to become familiar with the Clairemont community. Gaining new clients, networking with other businesses and gaining business referrals for services I may need was all part of joining the Chamber.”

~ Tom Lamke, Global Health and Wellness


From Richard Morris, Century 21 - 1st Choice Realty

  • My main reason for joining the Chamber is because it enhances a well-rounded, healthy life-style. Socially participating in the world around you is necessary in my opinion. Certainly, the reason for the Chamber is to promote business in Clairemont, and as a director this year we are working on that. We understand the emphasis is on Fun and Attraction. The more quality networking and fun we have leads to business transactions. As stated, last year I actually had my first real estate transaction through a Chamber member. Again, its important to remember that business follows goodwill (and not the other way around). The Chamber is a Fun place to get to know others, and make friends.
