The Commission partners with state legislators to identify women who make outstanding contributions to their organizations and in their communities. Each legislator is encouraged to submit one woman from their constituency as a means of recognizing their invaluable efforts and extraordinary acts of service.

“Thousands of women in every community across the Commonwealth perform unheralded acts on a daily basis that make our homes, neighborhoods, cities, and towns better places to live,” said MCSW Chairwoman Dr. Sarah Glenn-Smith. “Commonwealth Heroines use their time, talent, spirit, and enthusiasm to enrich the lives of others in their community. They are mentors, volunteers, and innovators - they are the glue that keeps a community together.”

Flannery recently received a Distinguished Alumni Award from David Prouty High School earlier this year. She also has received numerous awards for her real estate sales and community service. She has 30 years of real estate experience and this year was nominated for ERA Real Estate’s Jim Jackson Award for the second time. The award recognizes the top agent, team or company in all of ERA Real Estate for providing the best customer service.

ERA Key merged with HUNT Real Estate ERA in 2018 and together they are the largest brokerage in ERA Franchise Systems. The brokerage operates as ERA Key Realty Services in Massachusetts and as HUNT Real Estate ERA in New York.

“Donna epitomizes ERA Key’s values,” said ERA Key President and COO Cheryl Eidinger-Taylor. “She is consistently among our top-selling agents, but she also contributes to and volunteers her time for many organizations. It’s good to see her being recognized for her hard work and dedication.”

Flannery received the Town of Spencer Meritorious Public Service Award in 2014 and ERA Key’s Circle of Light Award-for exceptional volunteerism for the needy in the community in 2016. She was named Spencer Exchange Club Citizen of the Year in 2007 for her volunteer work in the community.

She is a past president and director of the Spencer Exchange Club and she has been a coordinator of Spencer Toys for Kids since 2004. She is a member of the Spencer Housing Authority and served as cooperator at Spencer Savings Bank.

Flannery consistently finishes among the top 10 agents in sales for ERA Key, which has more than 350 agents, and several times she has led the agency for the number of transactions closed. She is regularly named to the Leader’s Circle, which includes agents who have sold at least 65 units or total volume of at least $10 million for the year.

She worked for four years as the MLS supervisor for the Greater Worcester Board of Realtors before pursuing her license to sell real estate. She became a Realtor in 1992 at the former Hometown Real Estate and was named Rookie of the Year. She was her office’s top-selling agent from 1993 through 1998, finishing each year with the highest number of closed transactions and the dollar volume of homes sold.

In 2007, she was the ERA Boston Broker Council Agent of the Year, with the highest dollar volume for homes sold and the largest number of transactions from more than 800 agents. In 2009, she again achieved the highest dollar volume and finished second for number of closed transactions.

In 2013 and 2014, she was ranked #33 by Real Trends for being among the top 50 agents in Massachusetts. She also received the REALTOR® Association of Central Massachusetts’ (RACM) 2020 Emerald Top Producer Award.

She served as a director and vice president of the Worcester Regional Association of Realtors and as an alternate director of the Massachusetts Association of Realtors. She is certified as an Accredited Buyer Broker and is continuing her education to achieve the Graduate, REALTOR® Institute (GRI) designation, as well as requirements to become a mediation officer for the Massachusetts Association of Realtors.
