Eastern Shore Association of REALTORS® installs new board, officers

The Eastern Shore Association of REALTORS® held a Christmas luncheon in which it installed a new board of directors and officers for 2014. NAR Political Representative Shannon Burke was guest speaker and Delegate Lynwood Lewis spoke briefly as well.  VAR President-Elect Deborah A Baisden installed the new board.

Firm affiliation returns to DPOR’s License Lookup page

The Virginia Association of REALTORS® is pleased to announce that the Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation (DPOR) has added a licensee’s firm affiliation back to its License Lookup website this week.

Previously, VAR had worked with DPOR to speed up the process by which REALTORS® could have their licenses transferred when going to work for a new broker.

One consequence of this was that DPOR had to remove the “Firm” field from its License Lookup website, because the agency was concerned that the information in that field may not be up to date during the transfer.

VAR 2014 President Brad Boland was featured in this week’s “In the Spotlight” from the Washington Business Journal, which interviews business leaders from the D.C. metro area.
