Brentwood Realtor Recognized Nationally for Protecting, Investing in Real Estate Industry

Brentwood, TN: The National Association of Realtors® has announced that Lorie Layman, a Realtor® from Brentwood, TN, has become a Sterling R investor in the Realtors® Political Action Committee. RPAC is a national bipartisan grassroots-based political advocacy organization that works to protect the real estate industry and the dream of homeownership for Middle Tennessee residents and across the country.

Lorie Layman has supported RPAC for 15 years and has been a member of the National Association of Realtors® since 1991. Layman is a member of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) and the Williamson County Board of Directors (WCAR). She is chair of the WCAR's Professional Standard Committee, Co-chair for WCAR's Budget Committee, and serves on the WCAR's Government Affairs Committee. Layman is a licensed Broker and a Crye-Leike Circle of Excellence- Vice President holding designations as a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) and a Certified New Home Sales Professional (CSP). In her free time, she enjoys volunteering in the community at the Williamson County Animal Shelter.

"I support RPAC because doing so is important to my profession and I am committed to assisting in protecting personal property rights of my customers and clients," said Layman.

Since 1969, RPAC has promoted the election of pro-real estate candidates across the United States. The purpose of RPAC is to elect officials who understand and support the interests of real estate professionals and their home buying, selling and investing clients. RPAC uses its resources to seek to elect candidates that understand and support real estate, and to develop public policies that allow consumers to own homes and build their communities through commercial investment. Layman's investment will be applied to supporting homeownership, commercial real estate transactions, and the very future of the real estate industry.

Current REALTOR priorities include working with the Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service on how the new Tax law will be applied and administered, working to reauthorize the National Flood Insurance Program, and preserving Net Neutrality.

The National Association of Realtors®, "The Voice for Real Estate," is America's largest trade association, representing 1.3 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.
