Betty Pomeroy, REALTOR and Baker Extraordinaire, Celebrates 90th Birthday

June 26, 2019

This week, the agents from our Fair Oaks office put their day on pause to celebrate a special occasion: Betty Pomeroy‘s 90th birthday.


Betty has been a part of the RE/MAX Gold family since the beginning. In fact, if it wasn’t for Betty there wouldn’t be a RE/MAX “Gold”. Back in the day, the Company was referred to as “RE/MAX Capital City”. Ready for change, Mike Mobley, one of the original owners of RE/MAX Gold, announced a contest to help him select a new name for the Company. Drawing from the inspiration of Gold Country where she grew up, Betty submitted the name “RE/MAX Gold”, which was a perfect fit!

Betty has been a part of the real estate industry for 42 years, after a career working in sales departments at radio stations. She has been with RE/MAX Gold for a total of 24 years.

But Betty doesn’t just sell real estate—she also has a cake baking business! “Betty’s ‘Boozey’ Cakes” (yes, you read that right) began 3 years ago and has kept her busy ever since. With flavors like Rum Pecan, Lemon Vodka and even a Tequila Sunrise, Betty’s cakes are a hit with her colleagues at the Fair Oaks office!

At 90 years young, Betty is the epitome of the “RE/MAX Hustle”. You might ask her, “Does your real estate career and cake business keep you moving all the time?” To which Betty would respond, “You better believe it!”

Happy Birthday, Betty!
