Anne Gardner has recently celebrated her first year as CEO of Cape Fear REALTORS®, the largest trade association in our region. She’s an active volunteer and serves on both state and national committees in professional non-profit management and real estate organizations. Anne is a strong advocate for her REALTOR® members and community. As the CEO of Cape Fear REALTORS®, she encourages the membership to engage in community outreach programs and has taken an active role in promoting affordable housing, access to living wage jobs, and economic development.

For nearly 100 years, the Cape Fear REALTORS® has proven to be a valuable asset to its members and an advocate for their profession, representing the best of our region’s real estate industry. The real estate professionals who make up the association hold themselves to the highest standards of professionalism, ethics, and customer service and proudly bear the term REALTOR®. Cape Fear REALTORS® brings a local perspective to national market trends and industry dynamics, constantly striving to meet the changing needs of its more than 3,250 REALTORS® and enhance the resources made available to them, whether that’s advanced education opportunities, technological innovations, or legal support. Members of Cape Fear REALTORS® exhibit some unique qualities in working with clients and customers.
 
Readiness

Real estate agents learn how to work within the boundaries of large, regulated transactions and the legal tools associated with such transactions, an effort supported by the education and mentors of Cape Fear REALTORS®. Additionally, real estate is a data driven business and interpreting this data correctly is essential to achieve success and meet the needs of today’s clients. 

Credibility

Real estate agents who are REALTORS® are members of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®. Agents who gain membership to the association follow the association’s strict code of ethics and always work in the best interests of the clients they represent. This commitment is a prime characteristic that distinguishes REALTORS® from other real estate agents, and perhaps the most important.
 
Confidence
 

Currently, it’s a strong seller’s market in the Cape Fear area. The most sought-after properties are receiving multiple offers after only being listed for a matter of days or sometimes hours. Our area’s current conditions call for real estate professionals who are confident and capable to manage multiple offer situations – on both the buyer and seller side – and are prepared to operate under pressure while adhering to professional protocols and regulations.
 
What benefits can home buyers expect when choosing to work with a REALTOR®?

REALTORS® complete specific training processes exclusively offered by CFR as well as what is offered by their individual brokerage company. CFR offers every real estate professional access to the Multiple Listing Service, known as “the MLS.” This software allows agents to view in real time which properties are listed on the market and their most current status, which is particularly valuable in time-sensitive markets like ours. REALTORS® are expert guides at your service. They can provide home buyers with information about utilities, zoning, schools, and more. They are trained to look at every angle of your potential home from your perspective. With laws and regulations changing throughout the years, you can rest assured that your REALTOR® is up to date and ready to manage the details of your transaction.
