Realtors Team Up With Nationally Recognized Speaker For National Ethics Day

Leigh Brown To Moderate National Ethics Event

Monday, June 18, 2018

Leigh Brown, CEO of RE/MAX Executive, Leigh Brown & Associates, is spearheading a nationwide fundraiser and training event on June 27. Ms. Brown will teach the National Association of Realtors Code of Ethics class to participating associations across the United States. Greater Chattanooga Realtors will sponsor this event which is a nationwide fundraiser for the Realtors Relief Foundation. 

The RRF was launched by NAR, within hours of the devastating Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks—raising more than $8.4 million to provide assistance so that surviving family members could stay in their homes. Since then, more than $25 million has been raised for victims of disasters, including wildfires, tornadoes, floods, and hurricanes. 

“Born out of my passion for the Realtors Relief Foundation, this National Ethics Day fundraising event is going to knock the ball out of the park," said Ms. Brown. "I wholeheartedly believe that the Code of Ethics should be incorporated into your business every day and this class is the first step. My classes are never dull and never boring, so let’s talk professionalism and ethics. And if I can host this national event with Greater Chattanooga Realtors, all while benefiting the amazing Realtor Relief Foundation, then I consider that a win-win!”

The National Code of Ethics class will be live streamed Wednesday, June 27, from 1-4 p.m. and Greater Chattanooga Realtors will be hosting this class at Chattanooga State Community College (HSC Building, Room 1085) to accommodate for more attendees. More information about the event can be found on Facebook. Register to attend through the calendar on gcar.net, email info@gcar.net, or call 698-8001.

When the bill came up for a vote every Democrat in the House and Senate voted for approval. In addition, Eric Holder's DOJ signed off on it. Obama's DEA signed off on it and the President ...

Roy Exum: 2018 Ig Nobel Awards

The word ‘ignobel’ is rarely used because only a few among us know that it means "characterized by baseness, lowness, or meanness."
