It is quite unbelievable to think that another year has flown by! Here at the Santa Barbara Association of Realtors, we are looking forward to a wonderful year ahead.

Our new Board of Directors, comprised of Alec Bruice (president-elect), David Kim (vice president), Parker Beatty (secretary/treasurer), Ed Fuller (immediate past president), Andy Alexander, JJLambert, Adrienne Schuele and Doug Van Pelt (returning directors), and Janet Caminite, Justin Corrado, Stuart Morse and Thomas Schulthies (new directors) with affiliate director Justin Dees, is ready to begin implementing our new Strategic Plan. 

Our vision statement reads, “We are the trusted voice for real estate, a progressive resource for our community, and an advocate for our members and the public we serve.” Some of our objectives are: focusing on increasing our public relations, providing our members with “world class” education, continuing  to be a strong and effective advocate for property rights, and focusing on the NAR Code of Ethics combined with the CAR Code of Excellence (pending NAR approval).

We definitely have our work cut out for us!

With my fantastic board, our terrific AE, Bob Hart, and the hardworking and effective staff at the association, I believe that we will continue to effectively serve our members and the public.

We are off to a great start. 

Wishing you all a most happy, prosperous and healthy new year!

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
