Said Stephanie on her win, “I will make certain the voices of the North Carolina REALTORS® are heard at the national level, especially because we are from a community that is so unique not only in North Carolina, but also in the nation.  I am dedicated to being available for you to pick up the phone or send an email to have a current issue addressed expeditiously. And I couldn’t have done it without the support and hard work of OBAR!”

Directors for NAR are determined through state association elections and must serve a 3-year term.  Voting for the NC REALTOR® Elections began on Monday, Aug. 13 and ended last night at 11:59 p.m.  This year’s election was contested, with five candidates from across North Carolina running for only four positions with the National Association’s Board of Directors.  Walker was the only candidate from the region that includes the Outer Banks.

This has been a big week for Stephanie as she was also appointed to the 2019 REALTOR® Leadership Law and Policy Committee Liaison position with the REALTOR® Party of the NAR.  As the only advocacy group in America that fights exclusively for homeownership, real estate investment, strong communities and the free enterprise system, the REALTOR® Party focuses on the issues that matter to existing and future homeowners and the real estate industry.

Committee Liaisons, appointed by the President of NAR, serve as a conduit for communication between the Leadership Team and their assigned committees, help committees operate effectively, and help identify future committee leaders.  Congratulations on both accomplishments Stephanie Walker!
