Several Realtors from Covington and Conyers were among hundreds who recently participated in the Georgia Association of Realtors Rally for Homeownership on the front steps of the Georgia Capitol.

"We had a larger crowd than we originally expected, and the energy was amazing," said Bill Blair, local board president, in a press release. "It was inspiring to be a part of an event that promotes an issue that is so vital to the economy at every level."

Gov. Nathan Deal addressed the crowd, expressing his appreciation for realtors and their dedication to preserving homeownership in Georgia, despite the challenges of the recent economy.
