Kesner succeeds Avis Wukasch, who has served on the Texas Real Estate Commission since 2008 and was named as Chair in 2011. Under her leadership, the Commission transitioned to self-directed semi-independent status, strengthened the requirements to become a broker in Texas, expanded real estate education for all license holders, improved standard contract forms for buyers and sellers, and completed a comprehensive review of the agency’s rules; all resulting in improved effectiveness. Former Chair Wukasch will be recognized at the May 6 TREC meeting in Austin.
The Commission Chair plays a key role in protecting consumers of real estate related services in Texas.
