The officers and directors of the Charlotte Regional Realtor® Association, Carolina Multiple Listing Services, Inc. (CMLS) and Housing Opportunity Foundation were inducted Jan. 12, 2011 at the new Mint Museum Uptown. The event, sponsored by First American Home Buyers Protection Corp., gathered together a crowd of nearly 250 Realtors® and guests. Attendees toasted the new leadership, networked with other Realtors® and enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and dancing.
2011 President Laurie Knudsen was inducted by Jeff Adams, president and CEO of Helen Adams Realty. Knudsen then inducted the officers and directors of the association, CMLS and foundation as her first presidential duty. All officers and directors pledged to serve with honesty, integrity and dedication.
Knudsen then imparted her vision and focus for 2011. Her keen sense of humor and ability to stay positive during challenging times proves that Knudsen is ready to lead this organization. She knows that each and every Realtor® has what they need to recover if they only retool and rethink. Knudsen stressed the importance of taking time to look at the positives that are all around us, even during these trying times. To see a video copy of her remarks, click here.
