"It was an honor to receive this award. Serving as President of our Association in 2012 presented me the opportunity to keep both Realtors and homeowners in our community aware of the Real Estate trends that directly affect our market. I also continued our Associations efforts to promote homeownership through Legislative Advocacy during one of the most challenging economic times in recent real estate history."
