BDAR’s Got 2020 Vision: Local REALTORS® are Your Go-To Experts for Housing

The Barrie and District Association of Realtors® (BDAR) is looking to the future of local Real Estate Professionals with 2020 vision. BDAR Members welcome a new Board of Directors and the goal to strengthen the value of using a local REALTOR® for all real estate transactions.

“Our Members are experts in all things housing – which is more than only buying and selling,” said BDAR’s new 2020 President Robin Jones. “Being an expert in housing includes having a solid knowledge of housing financials, understanding the legal aspects of housing, keeping up-to-date on the issues that affect homeownership, and fully knowing neighbourhoods.”

Working with BDAR on this vision is the new 2020 Board of Directors:

Mr. Jones, further commented: “Working with this fine group of REALTORS®, I know we will continue to increase the professional status of Real Estate Professionals and ensure the community fully understands the breadth of knowledge that we bring to the table.”

Looking into the future of real estate, Jones said: “BDAR is a progressive Board and will be continuing its momentum in 2020, with continued efforts to strengthen relationships in the community and build new ones. We have some impactful line up of professional development and resources to kick-off the new decade. Supporting BDAR Realtors® throughout the Greater Simcoe Region to be valued, trusted and successful professionals in the community.”

On January 22, 2020 BDAR will be hosting the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) CEO Tim Hudak to install the 2020 Board and give back to the community with a donation of $10,000 to Habitat for Humanity Huronia and just over $3,000 to Barrie’s Youth Haven!
