Broker and Career Development Director Susan Barnette, of Crye-Leike Real Estate Services Chattanooga- East Brainerd, is now a Sterling R investor in the REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC).

RPAC is a national bipartisan grassroots-based political advocacy organization. As a Sterling R investor, Ms. Barnette will work with RPAC to help protect the real-estate industry and the dream of homeownership for the greater Chattanooga and Cleveland residents, and across the country.

Ms. Barnette has been a long time supporter of the organization prior to becoming an investor. “I support RPAC because it is important for me to assist in protecting personal property rights of my customers and clients,” she said.

She is an active volunteer with the Women’s Council of REALTORS®, having served a two-year term as the local network president; Ms. Barnette will take over as the Tennessee president of the (WCR) in 2018.

Ms. Barnette’s experience working as a Crye-Leike Broker and vast real estate knowledge will be an asset in helping RPAC to continue their work towards preserving the Mortgage Interest Deduction and preventing the use of guarantee fees charged on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac-backed loans to fund non-housing programs.

With the many years I have worked in real estate, I truly feel that supporting RPAC is the best way I can help influence the long term growth and stability of my industry,” said Ms. Barnette.
