The National Association of Realtors held their annual conference “Nardi-Gras” in New Orleans, Louisiana November 5-8, 2010.  Marjean Pountain of Pountain Partners LLC enjoyed attending the conference and its many educational offerings.  The highlight of the conference for Pountain was seeing her colleague and good friend Frederick Prassas, CPM, receive NAR’s Distinguished Service Award for 2010.    This recognition is the highest, most prestigious award given by the National Association of Realtors, and Prassas’s tireless years of volunteering his time to advance the goals and achievements of NAR made him most deserving of this award.  “Everyone was cheering as loud as they could because Fred so deserved the recognition for his hard work” Pountain said.
