Statement From Toronto Regional Real Estate Board and Barrie & District Association of REALTORS®
The Boards of Directors of the Barrie & District Association of REALTORS® (BDAR) and Toronto Regional Real Estate Board (TRREB) are pleased to announce BDAR Members have voted to integrate with TRREB.
This integration will unite more than 1,500 BDAR Members within the existing TRREB membership, empowering Members and increasing their reach and advocacy strength.
“We’re thrilled with today’s vote by our membership to integrate with TRREB,” said Julia Price-Greig, BDAR CEO. “This move will allow us to give Members the best tools to do their job while maintaining a strong and important regional presence.”
This integration provides Members unfettered access to an enhanced MLS® database, which means improved access to data, listings and clients. At the same time, BDAR’s existing regional office and dedicated local employees will remain. All Members will benefit from access to leading, local support services, ongoing professional development opportunities, and high-impact government advocacy and public policy offerings.
“Members will now be empowered with data, innovation and technology, strengthened advocacy, and leading educational opportunities,” said Luc Woolsey, BDAR President. “I’m proud of the proposal we brought to our membership and the guaranteed regional representation it includes.”
“This is good news for TRREB and for BDAR,” said TRREB President Paul Baron. “We are excited to integrate the two boards and look forward to the results this collaboration will bring our combined membership.”
