In recognition of National Homeownership Month in June,
National Association of REALTORS® President Elizabeth Mendenhall, a
sixth-generation REALTOR® from Columbia, Missouri and CEO of RE/MAX Boone
Realty issued the following statement:
“National Homeownership Month is a time to celebrate and
promote the modern American Dream of owning a home.
“Homeownership changes lives and enhances futures, and many Americans see
it as one of their greatest hopes. These individuals are counting on the
nation’s 1.3 million REALTORS® to champion and protect homeownership and help
make it more affordable, attainable and sustainable.
“REALTORS® pledge to continue to lead efforts to ensure that the dream of
homeownership is not only possible, but very real, for any and all who want to
achieve it, so they can have a place of their own to make memories, start
growing their financial futures, and build strong communities.”
