The Coldwell Banker brand is known worldwide for its charitable efforts. The brand and network support the efforts of a seemingly limitless number of diverse organizations ranging from, Habitat for Humanity, Toys for Tots and hundreds of localized programs. The 2020 Coldwell Banker Hero of the Year award honors one individual, office, or company who takes great pride in giving back and ensuring that those in need have a trusted advocate for a brighter future.

After a 30-year career as an educator, Kopicki joined Coldwell Banker in 2019. In addition to Kopicki’s real estate career, she is the founder, president and CEO of EVOLVEK12, a commission donation program, providing financial support to K-12 schools nationwide in an effort to eradicate the loss of programs and excellent teachers as well as close the achievement gap by closing the funding gap. Kopicki also runs a coalition for youth preventing drug and alcohol abuse. When COVID-19 struck, Kopicki immediately got to work securing PPE for healthcare workers and first responders, and provided them with supplies, meals and care packages. To call Kopicki selfless would be an understatement, and her ongoing acts of kindness make her the perfect recipient for this year’s award.
