ATLANTA, GA - The 2012 Atlanta Board of Realtors® board of directors was sworn into office on December 7. The annual luncheon, held at Cherokee Town Club, also honored ABR’s top Realtor volunteer leaders.

ABR’s President’s Award was presented posthumously to Harry Norman’s Tishann Brown, who served on multiple ABR committees. Brown, who passed away in May 2011, “was highly energetic and talented, and was a mentor to many in the real estate community,” noted Dan Parmer, Harry Norman president and CEO. “She will be greatly missed,” he added.

Harry Norman sales associates Anthony Acosta and Julie Osborn earned the Five Star Circle of Excellence Award for service. Floyd, Acosta and Osborne were also sworn in as 2012 directors, with Acosta named as Trade Show chair.
