Gayle Briscoe honored as black leader

Gayle Briscoe and her son Major Boyd were recognized in the 2003 Passing the Torch Legacy Awards given by African American Real Estate Professionals Inc.

The award honored Briscoe as an outstanding African-American leader who has inspired a new generation of leaders to succeed. As an honoree, Briscoe passed the torch of legacy to her son at the awards ceremony at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore in October.

Briscoe, an associate broker with the Ellicott City/Chatham office of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, has more than 30 years of real estate experience. Boyd is a sales associate with the same office.

Briscoe was the first black woman elected president of the Greater Baltimore Board of Realtors and the first in the country to be named president of a real estate board of that size, said Mary Felicia Kniep, public relations director for Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.
