In recognition of National Homeownership Month in June, National Association of Realtors Immediate Past 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.”
The National Association of Realtors engages consumers during National Homeownership Month and all year long with housing-related tips, news, stories and policy issues through websites such as Homeownership Matters, and HouseLogic.
