Sebree was a Senior Legislative Representative working with the congressional delegations of eight states. Prior to NAR, Sebree worked for two years for the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Banking, Finance and Urban Affairs.

“I’m excited and honored to be named C.A.R.’s next CEO,” said Sebree. “I’m looking forward to my new role and to working with California REALTORS®, local Association Executives and C.A.R. staff to serve our members. My goal is to ensure the REALTOR® organization is the pre-eminent source of essential business services and the strongest force advocating for our members’ interests.

It’s been a great pleasure and honor to work with outstanding colleagues and leadership in serving the Association and the REALTOR® community,” Singer said.
