As I begin my new role as the Executive Vice President, it is necessary that I recognize the career of Mary Van Ness. Most will never know how much she has done for all Association members, and I am fortunate to have worked for her and learned so much. Her leadership style is steady, patient and commands the utmost respect. Mary has shared with us so many memories, hard work, ups and downs, and laughs - all while putting the members best interest first and keeping the Association moving forward.
We wish you all a great year ahead and invite you to attend the educational seminars, social events, and as many Association activities as your schedule allows. There are many REALTOR
volunteers who are providing these opportunities for you. The Association Mission Statement is simple, “Promote the Professionalism, Integrity and Competency of REALTORS
”. Our intent is to provide you services to enhance your own business through educational opportunities, answering questions, and promoting the importance of utilizing local REALTORS
The FAR Board of Directors, MLS Committee, and Staff are committed to all members and service shall always be our #1 priority. We are positioned well into the future, but the Association needs you. Our strength is in the engagement of our membership, so if you have a desire to serve on a committee or get involved with FAR, please contact me.
I look forward to serving you all in this New Year!
Executive Vice President of FAR
The Fresno Association of REALTORS®
