SVAR has plenty to celebrate in this season of caring and sharing. Members came together tonight in support and honor of the installation of 2018’s new leadership and to say "thank you" to those who provided excellent guidance throughout 2017. New President Brett Harris, sworn in by friend and 2017 President Steve Overgard, will helm the organization in the new year, with the solid team of officers Kathie Braswell, president-elect; Steve Overgard, past president; Larry Lewis, treasurer; and directors Carmen Martin, Kenneth Pritchett, Nancy Steinke, Rhonda Canada Partin, Diana Hayes and Larry Lewis. John W Brockwell, Virginia REALTORS® director and two-time SVAR president, brought words on behalf of the state association, and 2017 President Steve Overgard offered thanks, a summary of accomplishments and a farewell. SVAR's new president delivered an humor-filled and goal-oriented inaugural speech. During the evening Johnny Harris was bestowed the REALTOR® Emeritus accolade for 40 years of service to the industry, and medallions were presented to about a dozen members who went above and beyond in 2017.
