From REALTOR® Mag:
It took a former President to install the next NAR president on Thursday.
Chris Polychron, 2015 NAR President, was thrilled that his old pal from Little Rock, Ark. turned up to do the honors in the Great Hall Ballroom of New Orleans’ Morial Convention Center. His friend of more than 30 years happened to be the 42nd President of the United States.
“I love Chris Polychron,” former President Bill Clinton told the audience. “He supported me when I ran for governor. He and [his wife] Janis are really good people.”
Clinton called on real estate professionals to do their part to change the discourse in an increasingly polarized and economically divided society. “We are the best-positioned country in the world for the 21st century. But we have to create an economy where we grow the middle class again. We have to cure the political dysfunction,” he said. “It starts with the way you relate to your community. I believe we cannot rise unless we continue to see [home ownership] as a source of national wealth.”
