2019 Charitable Service Award: Claudienne Hibbert, The Keyes Company

Claudienne Hibbert
The Keyes Company

Claudienne Hibbert-Smith has shifted the paradigm of what the premise of a teenage mother could ever be. Claudienne became pregnant at the age of 14.  The stigma of ruining her life was completely thrown upon her shoulders.  Unlike some who saw doom in her future as a result of her pregnancy, failure was not an option for her. She was among the top academic performers and Vice President of her high school graduating class- Miami Carol City Senior High School class of 97.

In 1997, she gained admission to the University of Florida (UF), a premiere university ranked 12th overall among all U.S. public universities according to the US News & World Report, where she would later obtain her bachelor’s degree in 2001. Shortly after landing her first job out of college, she transitioned into a real estate professional and partnered with The Keyes Company. Claudienne quickly moved up the charts with her sales volume and as a result, created the Hibbert Group to expand her services.

Throughout the last eighteen years, Claudienne received various educational and Real Estate Industry credentials to include, but not limited to Chairman’s & Presidential Elite Circle, 100 Outstanding Women of Broward County, 25 Most Influential & Prominent Black Women in Business and Leadership, Top 5 Real Estate Network.

Claudienne Hibbert serves as the President of the National Association of Real Estate Brokers, South Florida Board. The organization is the oldest minority real estate trade organization, in which aims to provide democracy in housing.  She recently received the Emerging Leadership Award at the NAREB Conference in 2019.

She served as a realtor for the City of Miami Gardens, Miramar and Pembroke Pines and fulfilled the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP). Claudienne also serves on the City of Miami Gardens Affordable Housing Advisory Committee and on the City of Opa Locka Zoning and Planning Board.

Economic success has not deterred Claudienne from selflessly giving back.  Her foundation is rooted in community service and is the primary reason she gives back to the community.  She tirelessly gives her time to organize events with her 501 C 3 non-profit organization, Claudy Cares Foundation. As a result of her community involvement, she was honored with the first ever Humanitarian Unsung Hero Award from the Keyes Company. Claudienne continues to be a pillar of her community.
