Gardner took the helm of the Wilmington-based Realtors' association in 2019. Gardner, whose official last day as CEO of the association is Dec. 31, plans to move back to Virginia, "a place she calls home," the release stated.

Steve Mitchell, 2023 president of CFR, said in the release, “We're grateful for Anne’s dedicated service and outstanding contributions as our chief executive. Her expertise led to the success of critical initiatives since joining Cape Fear Realtors in 2019. Anne’s leadership guided us through the uncertainties of the COVID-19 pandemic and to complete the renovations of our building—Terraces on Sir Tyler.

"She has successfully implemented new practices, initiatives, and programs. Her impact will continue to encourage us to be exceptional stakeholders in our real estate industry.”

Gardner said in the release she believes she leaves the organization in a solid position.

She said in the release, “It has been a privilege to work alongside such a talented and dedicated group of individuals, and I am proud of the achievements of the leadership, volunteers, and professional staff."

Before coming to CFR, Gardner was CEO of the Charlottesville Area Association of Realtors, one of the largest trade organizations in central Virginia, for nine years.
