MOUNT VERNON — Home sales this year have lived up to optimistic expectations voiced a year ago at the Knox County Board of Realtors Christmas Banquet, and they were celebrated Wednesday night as the Mount Vernon Country Club hosted the organization’s year-end event for 2013.
About 100 members, affiliate members and guests were in attendance, and after a social hour the event moved briskly into acknowledgments and recognition of top performers for the year. As outgoing president, Martha Edelbute of Real Estate Pros noted that this was her third term in the organization’s top position and one she didn’t anticipate.
“I wasn’t even running, but somehow I got elected and I’m happy that 2013 has been a great success for us,” Edelbute said. “I especially want to thank our officers and affiliate members. They are always there for us when we need them. I’m the first person to serve as president three times (she also held the post in 2000 and 2009), and now it’s time for others to take over.”
