President’s Corner

Hey y’all! It has been a while since our membership last met, but it looks like everyone is rocking and rolling! I am pumped to start this awesome looking, monthly-membership email. It will be your go to place for streamlined board events, news & activity.

You may be wondering when the luncheons will resume… Good question. The board of directors recently discussed the timing to resume meetings. There will not be an August membership meeting, but there is a possibility for one in September. Another option being considered is a fun, outdoor event. More info to come.

Be sure to register for the 2020 Convention & Expo, which will be held October 6-8, 2020, in Meridian. The Early Bird registration rate of $269 has been extended through the end of August. That rate, paired with the NEMSBR $200 credit for attending convention and completing one continuing education course, makes this a super-affordable option. Visit to register.

Due to membership benefits being limited, the board of directors approved a 3 month marketing campaign through Lure Creative to begin August 1, 2020. Be on the lookout for the REALTOR® promotions on social media, billboards, print & television.

 The market is wide open! A few stats to keep in mind: YTD listings are down 4% (no surprise there). On a positive note, the YTD total volume sold is up 4.5% and the median sale price for our board is up 11.5%!!

 Y’all keep rocking it! See you soon!

Jessica Harris, President

Northeast Mississippi Board of Realtors
