On a personal note, both my husband, Mac Lowson, and I were inducted into the National Association of Realtors RPAC Hall of Fame in May 2013 during the Midyear Convention in Washington, D.C. Our strong support for realtor political issues, including the mortgage interest deduction, electing candidates who promote home ownership and numerous other private property rights throughout our careers, was recognized at the national level.
