Lisa Hilton Earns the Military Relocation Professional (MRP) Certification

Lisa Hilton with Opie Balch Realty has earned the nationally recognized Military Relocation Professional (MRP) Certification. The National Association of REALTORS® confers the MRP certification to REALTORS® who want to help military personnel and veterans find housing solutions that best meet their needs and allow them to take full advantage of their military benefits.  When military staff and their families relocate, the services of a real estate professional who understands their needs and timetables can make the transfer easier, faster and less stressful. REALTORS® who earn this certification know how to work with active duty military buyers and sellers, as well as veterans.

Lisa understands from a first-hand perspective the challenges and time constraints associated with a military move…she and her husband moved 15 times during his 22-year Army career!  Opie Balch Realty is so excited to have Lisa’s MRP certification and personal experience to help our military clients make their relocation to/from the Tennessee Valley as easy as possible!

On January 9, 2016, 2015 Huntsville Area Association of Realtors (HAAR) President Opie Balch passed the gavel to the 2016 HAAR President Kathy Mann.

Opie states “It has been an honor and a privilege to serve the members of HAAR as their 2015 President.  My theme for 2015 was “The Right Way – The Only Way” and I truly believe that we are on the right way to being the best association in the nation!  2015 was a banner year in accomplishments for HAAR.  Our home sales in 2015 increased 19% over 2014, so if we strive to do everything the right way and remember that the association is for our members, we will continue to be very successful.  It has been an honor to lead and serve the members of HAAR in 2015.”

Congratulations to Opie Balch on a very successful term as the 2015 HAAR President.
