Columbus Realtor Greg Dunn inducted into hall of fame
Columbus real-estate broker Greg Dunn has been inducted into the Georgia Realtors Hall of Fame.
Dunn and Denny Jones, a co-broker and owner of RE/MAX Greater Atlanta, were honored during the recent Georgia Realtors Inaugural and Legislative Conference and Expo held in Atlanta.
The hall of fame recognizes members of Georgia Realtors who have demonstrated consistent support of the organization for at least 30 years, and who have had a strong influence in the real-estate industry.
Never miss a local story.
"Through their business accomplishments, professionalism and long-term devotion to the Realtor organization, Mr. Dunn and Mr. Jones exemplify what it means to be a Georgia Realtor," said Ryan Brashear, the organization's president. "We are proud to bestow upon them the highest honor that they can receive as a Georgia Realtor."
Dunn was recognized by the Georgia chapter of the Real Estate Educators Association as Educator of the Year in 1999, and received the Distinguished Career Award in 2011. He also received the Realtor of the Year award from the Columbus Board in 1989, and was named Georgia Realtors Instructor of the Year in 2001.
Georgia Realtors is a voluntary professional association of about 31,000 licensed real estate brokers and sales people. The organization is an advocate for the real-estate industry in Georgia, saying it is committed to protecting private property rights and free enterprise, maintaining ethical and professional standards, and enhancing the public's awareness and confidence in Realtors.

Each recipient is honored with a permanent plaque at Credit Union House.
Davis has been with Kinetic Credit Union since 1983 and has held her current position for 24 years. Kinetic currently has five branches and two service centers with 41,000 members and $310 million in assets.
