Inman inducted into the Hall of Fame for the National Association of Realtors

The Lexington-Bluegrass Association of Realtors® (LBAR) announces Mike Inman has been inducted into the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) Hall of Fame. He joins an elite group across the country to earn such an honor as only a fraction of all Realtors® nationwide receive this honor and recognition.

The National Association of Realtors® Hall of Fame recognizes dedicated Realtor® members who go above and beyond to invest in their profession and protect the private property rights of all Americans. As the voice of real estate in the United States, Realtors® like Inman understand the importance of homeownership as a major tenet of the American dream and work to preserve it. Inman was inducted into the Hall of Fame during the 2020 Realtors® Legislative Meetings. His name has now earned a distinguished position on the Hall of Fame wall located on NAR’s Washington, D.C. building rooftop overlooking the United States Capitol.

“Home ownership is vitally important to so many areas of the economy and no one knows this more than Realtors®,” said Inman. “We are in the best position, because of our chosen profession, to protect the interests of home owners. I believe it with all my heart, and so I invest in Realtor® Political Action Committee (RPAC).”

Inman is an agent with Coldwell Banker McMahan and has been a member of LBAR for over 13 years. He specializes in residential properties and farms primarily in Mercer, Anderson, Boyle, Franklin, Jessamine and Woodford counties. In addition to selling real estate, he has been very active at all levels of the Association and has held a number of leadership roles. He currently serves as a director for Kentucky Realtors® and is a graduate of the LeadershipKYR program. Inman has been an RPAC major investor for 8 years and was the 2017 and 2018 recipient of a Presidential Award at the state level. He has served on the RPAC Major Investor Council at NAR and as an RPAC Trustee at the state level. Inman is currently serving on the RPAC Participation Council at the national level. In 2019, he became the first Platinum R investor in Kentucky and was named Realtor® of the Year for LBAR. Mike is very active in his community, currently serving as vice chair for the Harrodsburg, Mercer County Tourism Commission, as a director for the Mercer County Chamber of Commerce and serves on the Pioneer Days Festival Committee. Inman is a deacon at Hopewell Baptist Church and is a 25-year veteran of the US Army, retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel.
