Rusher new president of Realtors group

Michael Rusher of 1st Cooperative Realty has been installed as 2011 president of the Salisbury/Rowan Association of Realtors.
Stephanie Walker, 2011 president of the North Carolina Association of Realtors, handled the installation ceremony at the Jan. 4 meeting at the Country Club of Salisbury.
“I am truly honored to be the 2011 president of the Salisbury/Rowan Association of Realtors. I know that all of us will face similar challenging conditions this year that we have in the past but with the experience and knowledge that each of you have, I know this year will be a successful year in real estate,” Rusher said.
Walker, who is from Kill Devil Hills, said maintaining a mortgage interest deduction is important for the real estate industry. She said homeowners already pay more than 80 percent of U.S. federal income tax and this share could rise if the deduction is eliminated.
Also installed were Cynthia Ehrman (Key Real Estate) president elect; Beth Bean (Re/Max Leading Edge), treasurer; Margaret Kirby (Kirby Realty), secretary; and directors Jerry Davis (Century 21 Towne & Country), Ellen Carter (Key Real Estate), Scott Robinson (Robinson Appraisals), Terry Frances (Wallace Realty), Cathy Griffin (Century 21 Towne & Country), Mary Arey (Arey Realty), Shelly Kranz (U.S. Realty), Roger Kraycirik (B&R Realty), Gail Swan (Wallace Realty) and Kelly Lowe (Apple House Realty).
Deborah Miller (Rowan Realty), past president, recognized outgoing directors Bonzie Everson (Wallace Realty), James Poe (Wallace Realty), Dan Waggoner (Waggoner Realty), Dale Yontz (B&R Realty) and Dorothy Kirtley (Dorothy Kirtley Realty).
Directors serve three-year terms.
Miller presented several members with service pins:
• 30-34 years: Diane Hunter (Re/Max Leading Edge), Gloria Shoaf (Gloria Shoaf Appraisals), Dianne Green (Century 21 Towne & Country), Carrol Casey (Carrol Casey, Broker).
• 35-39 years: Sue MacLamroc (Century 21 Towne & Country).
The 2010 Realtor of the Year award was presented to James Poe of Wallace Realty. Elizabeth Bean (Re/Max Leading Edge) and Debbie Miller (Rowan Realty) presented the award.
Rusher presented the Distinguished Service Award to Jim Crawford of Key Real Estate.
Affiliate Spotlight Brad Dyer of Piedmont Natural Gas was recognized.
