Meet Camille Bruno, who was recently elected to a two-year term (2022-2023) on the PSAR board of directors.
Camille grew up in San Diego. She graduated from Madison High School in Clairemont (class of 1981). Prior to selling real estate, she worked for 10 years with Campbell Soup Co. as the San Diego representative serving all major grocery stores. Camille and her husband recently celebrated their 32nd-year wedding anniversary.
Camille and her family have lived in Chula Vista’s Eastlake community since 1988. “It is a wonderful area for families,” she said. “We raised our own family here. All three of our children, Bianca, Dominic, and Bella, have attended EastLake schools. I know the area very well.”
She began her real estate sales career in January 2000. “I love serving my clients and helping people with the dream of homeownership,” Camille said. “I’m now serving some of my clients’ children who have grown up.
“Real estate is a demanding job and it takes a lot of patience and understanding,” said Camille. “But, if you love what you do then it’s not a job.”
This is Camille’s second time serving on the PSAR board. She previously served from 2006 to 2009, including the roles of treasurer and secretary.
Since 2017, Camille has served on the PSAR Grievance Committee. She explained her reasons for returning to the PSAR board.
“When you’re involved with the association, then you learn more and become informed about what’s going on,” said Camille. “Our business is changing on a daily basis. And, you can better serve your clients by becoming as informed as possible. If you’re involved, then you’re better informed.
“Also, I’m serving on the board because I have more available time since our children are grown and out on their own (Bianca is a courthouse journalist, Dominic is a financial planner for a bank, Bella is a nursing student). When the kids were small, it was difficult to juggle both family and work.”
Camille believes REALTORS® can benefit from serving. “It’s good business to give back to the community and our association. Sure, you can just pay your dues and do nothing. But, it’s better to be involved. It helps with networking with other real estate professionals.
“I would encourage every PSAR member to get involved and serve with the association. There are many benefits of thinking more about other people instead of yourself and giving your life away. You will find satisfaction and significance by using your expertise, knowledge, gifts, talents, and abilities to serve other people.”
PSAR's mission is to empower REALTORS®.
