MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The Alabama Real Estate Commission is announcing Patricia Anderson as its new executive director. Anderson was named following a national job search and extensive interview process conducted by the nine Real Estate Commissioners who are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate.

The Alabama Real Estate Commission is the state agency that licenses and regulates Alabama's nearly thirty thousand real estate licensees and companies. Its mission is to protect the public through the licensing and regulation of real estate agents.

Anderson replaces D. Philip Lasater who passed away unexpectedly in August after serving 24 years as the Executive Director

"The Commission looks forward to working with Ms. Anderson," said Commission Chairman Bill Watts." She will be an effective leader and a great asset to the real estate industry. She has vast experience, knowledge, and skills that are critical in meeting Commission objectives and requirements of the law."

Anderson has served as Assistant Executive Director of the Alabama Real Estate Commission for the past ten years. Prior to this position, she was the Commission's Education Director from 1977-2004. Under her leadership, Alabama has become nationally recognized for its leadership role in real estate regulation and model programs that have been used by many states.

"I am extremely excited about this opportunity to serve as Executive Director and am committed to continue the Commission's vision to ensure excellence in the real estate profession," Anderson said. "I am honored by the confidence placed in me and I look forward to serving the people of Alabama in this capacity."
