Ron Phipps has recently been named President of National Association of Realtors. Phipps still holds a Vermont license which we proudly display on our office wall here at Stowe Realty. “We are delighted to have Ron Phipps as a member of our team and congratulate him on becoming President of NAR,” said Ken Libby, an active member of NAR since 2003.

National Association of Realtors is the largest trade association, with 1.1 million members.

“We are honored to have a National Association of Realtors’ President among us,” stated John Biondolillo. “Ron’s level of excellence and commitment typifies our Stowe Realty and BCK agents.  Our agents consistently go above and beyond the minimum standards required to be a real estate professional.  All of our agents serve or have served their fellow Realtors in one capacity or another at the local, state and national levels.  We are proud of Ron Phipps and applaud his accomplishments.”
