SAR Broker/member Tom Hormel (pictured above, right) was installed, this week, as the 86th president of the Washington REALTORS® organization.
Tom's theme for this year is "We R in this Together."
Tom was installed by Washington REALTORS ®Past-president Terry Sullivan (pictured above, left), who held the office in 2006.
The installation was conducted virtually Wednesday afternoon in a live Zoom event that originated from Spokane - the first virtual installation of an annual WR president since the tradition began in 1935.
Among REALTOR® leaders who offered congratulations to the new WR president was 2021 NAR President Charlie Oppler (pictured above). Charlie recently announced that the national Legislative Meetings will all be virtual this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic (see his video announcement in this newsletter).
WR Immediate Past-president Kitty Wallace, a Cle Elum Broker (pictured above) - virtually handed President Hormel the official gavel of the office during Thursday's virtual event - but did offer him real congratulations and a heart-felt pledge of support as he begins his term in the office.
Terry Sullivan also installed the 2021 Washington REALTORS® officers and directors (pictured above), including several SAR Broker Members:
2021 Washington REALTORS® Vice President for Governmental Affairs Eric Johnson
2021 Washington REALTORS® Vice President-elect Membership Ken Sax
