PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE: Welcome to the new year!

Hello Nevada REALTORS® members,

As we run full steam into 2023, I believe a healthy, happy, and prosperous year is in our future. The new year brings the opportunity to start fresh. I urge all 20,000-plus members statewide, set great expectations, have a business plan and work tirelessly to meet your goals. I would also like to strongly encourage our members to show gratitude and appreciation for others. Make servant leadership a priority and your dedication will be paid forward 10 fold.
I would be remiss without taking the time to thank our 2022 President Doug McIntyre and his leadership team. Their efforts over the past 12 months have been commendable and I plan to press forward, building on those achievements.
Additionally, our leadership and staff here at Nevada REALTORS® believe it’s paramount to express how grateful we are for our fine NVR members. The members are a vital reason our industry is flourishing throughout the Silver State even during these challenging and changing times. Nevada’s real estate market held strong throughout the pandemic and that is something all REALTORS® can be thankful for as we experience this next era.
We now find ourselves in early 2023 and that means a Nevada legislative session nears. The Legislature will convene in February and continue its work into June. You can count on your association to monitor everything legislative that impacts the real estate industry. We are proud of all who stand with us to promote private property rights, while making our voices heard as advocates for laws, regulations and policies that protect consumers and keep the dream of homeownership alive.
Nevada REALTORS has more than 70 years as the state’s trusted advocate for REALTORS®. We are proud of that legacy of service and excited for the promise of all that awaits as we continue to work together. The synergy of our REALTOR® family will continue to make a positive difference. I am honored and humbled to serve as your NVR President in 2023! I value this opportunity and very much look forward to our year together. I wish you all a productive and rewarding next year.

2023 NVR President
