Pat Tiberi, R-OH
"Madam Speaker, it is with great pleasure I rise to recognize the distinguished career of the CEO of the Ohio Association of REALTORS, Don Freels. Homeownership has always been the cornerstone of the American Dream. When moving into a home of our own, we gain immeasurable independence and confidence, as faith in the future of our family and our community grows. The spread of ownership and opportunity helps give us a vital stake in the future of America and the chance to realize the great promise of our country. Therefore, those who contribute to the furtherance of the American Dream for others deserve to be honored for their service. The Ohio Association of REALTORS was created to help protect the investment Americans place in their homes, and for 17 years Don Freels has led this organization with honor and distinction. Starting over 39 years ago, Don began serving as an active REALTOR in the Chicago area, working as the executive officer of two local boards. By 1985, due to his leadership and the remarkable reputation he built with his peers, Don was selected to head the Michigan Association of REALTORS. The success he achieved in this post caught the eye of REALTORS in the Buckeye State, and in 1992 Don was hired as CEO of the Ohio Association of REALTORS. Since then, Don’s unparalleled leadership and passion for his craft has helped maintain the stature of Ohio’s largest professional trade organization, improve the realty profession, and solidify its irreplaceable role in the furtherance of the American Dream. Through commendable loyalty to his profession, Don stands as a pillar of his community. As a former REALTOR, I am very pleased to thank him for all he has done for Ohio. I offer my congratulations to Don Freels for a career spent in service to REALTORS everywhere. I hope the spirit he daily brings forth in his life and work continues to inspire his friends and co-workers for years to come."
