Last Thursday, the Bristol Tennessee/Virginia (BTVAR) and Southwest Virginia (SWVAR) Associations of REALTORS® hosted Dr. Lawrence Yun, chief economist with the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), to present information on the local real estate market and discuss how national economic factors impact the area.

SWVAR President Evie J. Hunt and BTVAR President Fred McClellan coordinated their groups’ efforts to bring this insightful presentation about the economic and housing outlook to area REALTORS® and other community guests.

“This presentation was made possible by the collaborative efforts of the Southwest Virginia Association of REALTORS® and the Bristol Tennessee Virginia Association of REALTORS®. We were very honored to have Dr. Yun as our guest in Southwest Virginia and we are also very proud of the manner in which our two local REALTOR® associations continue to work together to be the ‘Voice of Real Estate’ in our area!  Although our two associations are small, our visions are huge and co-hosting this successful event solidifies our commitment to our customers, clients, and the real estate industry,” said Hunt.
