The Real Estate Council's 20th Anniversary

The Real Estate Council’s (TREC) 20th anniversary soiree was held at The Joule on November 11th. The theme was “Dreaming Big for 20 Years,” and the event had over 200 members in attendance to celebrate The Real Estate Council's dreams—past, present and future.

Bill Kramer of Republic Title, former vice chairman and longtime TREC member said, “The Real Estate Council was founded by a group of industry leaders at the height of one of the toughest real estate climates in memory. It started with a party—FightNight—but it became more than that. Many ingredients were needed to create this organization: economic conditions, hard work of a few men and women, and pride for their city. Those early leaders who saw the city’s true need had the wisdom and foresight to know the multiplier effect of giving back. That’s a huge reason why I’ve stayed involved over the years.”
