Crye-Leike Broker Kathy Tucker has been elected to serve as a director for The National Association of Realtors from 2013-2015.

Since becoming a licensed realtor in 1977, Ms. Tucker has understood the importance of being actively involved with local, state, and national real estate associations and organizations.

Her participation and involvement has led her to be elected to serve as a National Association of Realtors director for the next few years. She will be headed to Washington in May to meet with political leaders to discuss the importance of homeownership and how having a strong housing market helps support the economy.

“It’s a wonderful honor to be elected to serve as a NAR Director,” she said. “I’m excited to get the chance to soon attend several real estate conventions to meet with political leaders to talk about the important issue impacting homeownership and home sales. I will be proud to represent Chattanooga home buyers and sellers to express the needs and issues facing us in Tennessee and our local Chattanooga counties.”

For many years, Ms. Tucker has enjoyed serving on many boards and committees with the Greater Chattanooga Association of Realtors and the Tennessee Association of Realtors and has been an active member of the National Association of Realtors since she started her real estate career. She served as the Greater Chattanooga Association of Realtors president in 2004 and 2006.  Most recently, Kathy served as a Tennessee Association of Realtors director from 2002 to 2011, and she served as the TAR Government Affairs chairwoman in 2012.

Ms. Tucker has been a licensed realtor in Chattanooga for 36 years and the managing broker of Crye-Leike’s Hixson branch office since 1977. She specializes in all types of residential real estate sales and relocation and works with buyers and sellers in and around Hamilton County. She has completed all of the continuing education and training to earn her professional real estate designations as a Graduate Realtor Institute and a Certified Builder Specialist.

“I have always encouraged the agents in my office to give back and get involved in the local real estate associations, and I believe in leading by example,” said Ms. Tucker. “I have been excited to serve in many positions on several different real estate boards and committees at both the local and state level.

“I look forward to serving on the national level as a director for the National Association of Realtors for the next few years. Serving as a NAR director will allow me the opportunity to possibly serve on other important NAR committees such as the Professional Standards and Government Affairs committees.”

Ms. Tucker is a consistent top producing agent and a member of Crye-Leike’s Multi-Million Dollar Club. She is proud of her many career successes including her highest honor when she was named Realtor of the Year in 2004 by the Greater Chattanooga Association of Realtors.

She is a native Chattanoogan. She lives in Hixson, with her husband, Ron who is also a realtor with Crye-Leike.
