Congratulations to Those Who Made Chicago Magazine’s The New Power 30 List

Sarah Ware

Past President Zeke Morris, EXIT Strategy Realty, Treasurer Sarah Ware, Ware Realty Group, and Dearborn REALTIST® Board President Courtney Jones, Chicago Homes Realty Group, were featured on Chicago Magazine’s The New Power 30 list.

They were honored for their efforts to stop hate speech, which led to NAR’s Code of Ethics changes at the end of last year, making the use of harassing or hate speech toward any of the protected classes a violation of the Code of Ethics. Congratulations on your success!
