LUMBERTON — The Lumberton Board of Realtors will merge with the Brunswick County Association of Realtors to launch a new chapter on Jan. 1.

According to a statement from the Brunswick County association, the merger follows a year-long collaboration between the two groups.

Richard Barnes was named president of the newly formed chapter and will serve a three-year term on the Brunswick association’s board of directors. Mark Sessions will be the chapter’s president-elect and Mira Kinney will serve as its secretary and treasurer. Barnes said that 60 Lumberton realtors will be supported by the chapter.

“As a small board, we were not able to provide a lot of services,” Barnes said. “This will allow us to provide our realtors with educational opportunities, and we will have a staff at the Brunswick association that will keep us updated on state and national issues.”

Cynthia Cumbie, CEO of the Brunswick County Association of Realtors, says she is looking forward to working with the Lumberton chapter.

“This is a chance for us to share our resources and work with a talented group of realtors to foster a healthy, robust real estate market throughout the region,” she said.

Chartered in 1959 by the National Association of Realtors, the Brunswick group represents members in southeastern North Carolina and northeastern South Carolina.

“It’s exciting to be a part of these two successful, forward-thinking associations joining forces and combining resources to provide members with greater support, education and training and move southeastern North Carolina’s real estate market in a positive direction,” Cumbie said.
