Business Times of Edmond, Oklahoma January 2020 - Page 4

From the Editor Buying and Selling Edmond T o the Readers: This is the time of the year for the local real estate industry to pat the backs of those who have gone above and beyond. Realtors gather to celebrate in their annual association meetings representing both Edmond and statewide interests. Individuals who have represented the industry well either through their leadership or through their selfless giving are formally recognized. Edmond’s real estate market is full of individuals making the industry and their community better for others. We, at The Business Times, take this time each year to spotlight some of those who are making a difference. The Edmond Board of Realtors recently honored several of its members by bestowing awards upon them, and 4 January 2020 | The Business Times EBR also had a passing of the gavel. In November the Oklahoma Association of Realtors held its 2019 REignite Conference and Trade Show. Several Edmond realtors were among honorees there. We have stories on both of these events and more. Other stories in this issue of The Business Times include a look at a historical abstract and title company serving our area, a glance at Edmond’s keeper of real estate statistics, and an inside view of the duties of a home inspector. The Edmond real estate market is full of activity in both single-family homes and commercial properties. There continues to be growth in value and in amount of home sales, and these are exciting times for the industry and for the people of Edmond. We hope you enjoy reading this issue of The Business Times on the topic of “Buying and Selling Edmond.” MARK CODNER is the editor of The Business Times of Edmond
