As 2020 draws to a close, I want to say thank you to all the members of the Birmingham Association of REALTORS®. It has truly been an honor to serve as your President.
Our association has made great strides in a year that could have slowed our progress. We were declared as an Essential Industry first on the local level, then the state and national level. We have continued our efforts to provide our members with all the tools and education available to increase and improve your businesses.
We learned to adapt, not only as an association, but as an industry. We’ve shown houses while wearing masks, gloves, and shoe coverings. We’ve adapted to virtual showings, shooting video tours, all while maintaining our utmost level of professionalism.
A sincere thank you to Chris Bakane, our Interim CEO, and our tremendous BAR and GALMLS team. This year has been a challenge, but you have met that challenge and succeeded in providing amazing service to our members.
Thank you to the 2020 BAR Board of Directors. Your service and dedication to this association proves that we are on the right path. You are an amazing and diverse group of business professionals who have joined together for the betterment of our industry. Again, for that, I thank you.
To the 2020 BAR Executive Committee…President-Elect Kelli Gunnells, Treasurer Anna Marie Ellison, Secretary Keith Kelley, and Immediate Past President Gusty Gulas…Thank You! Thank you for your support and advice during this year. It has been an honor to serve with you.
Most importantly, Thank You to you, the members of the Birmingham Association of REALTORS®. My goal was to ensure that the association had a positive impact on you and your business. I hope we accomplished that goal. It has been an honor to serve you.
To 2021 President Kelli Gunnells, I wish you great success in all that you do.
God bless you all,
