Remembering Laura Bird

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we regret to inform you NPSAR’s 2023 President, Laura Bird, passed away in the evening of October 4th, after her extremely hard-fought battle with cancer. 

Laura was “one of a kind”, and her presence and ability to light up any room she walked into will be deeply missed by our REALTOR® family. She was ambitious, fierce, hilarious, and a little inappropriate (at times), but that’s why we loved her. She truly was likely no other.
During this difficult time, please keep Laura's son, Shane, family, and friends in your thoughts and prayers. Let us come together and show the true value of the REALTOR® family in supporting each other during this difficult time.

Rest easy, Laura. No more pain. 

Fly Birdie, Fly. 

“Be the things you loved most about the people who are gone."
