Local realtors joined others across the state to attend the 2020 Tennessee Realtors Excel Summit in Nashville.

Speakers from across the United States encouraged agents to be lifelong learners.

Keynote speaker Rick Rigsby challenged realtors to pursue excellence citing, “Champions are not champions because they do extraordinary things, but because they do ordinary things better than anyone else,” by Chuck Noll, legendary coach of the Pittsburg Steelers.

Realtor Brenda Purcell said, "We were all challenged to be the very best at our game by remembering to do ordinary things such as do not judge, be early, be kind and be a servant."
