As we round the homestretch on the year 2020, plans are already well underway for our landmark Centennial year in 2021. Our all-new three-week Virtual Convention and Trade Show, Reimagine: Build Your Future, is a prelude to the excitement and innovation that’s on the horizon.
With the Convention kick-off just a few weeks away, check NVAR.com/Convention regularly for updated session information tied to our goals for your future success and see page 23 to learn more.
To ensure Realtors® remain marketplace leaders, you can expect NVAR resources, programming and opportunities during Convention and beyond that will:
- Deliver world-class member service with a 21st Century mindset;
- Create unprecedented collaboration and leadership opportunities throughout the industry;
- Position Northern Virginia Realtors® as industry leaders and spokespersons at state, local and national levels;
- Leverage our Metro D.C. market position to attract homeowners, investors and professionals; and
- Provide a digital-first approach for access and engagement with NVAR.
One significant example of how NVAR is positioning you for the future is the adoption of Remine Docs+ as our primary forms vendor. This resource is a future-focused game changer! It integrates the entire transaction process into an intuitive cloud- based collaborative tool that will help both you and your clients. You’ll be hearing much more about Docs+ during the transition period, from Sept. 1 – Dec. 31, and you can learn more at NVAR.com/Remine and on page 7 of this issue.
Real estate is predicted to continue the strong rebound that began this summer, with NAR’s Chief Economist Dr. Lawrence Yun projecting sales in 2021 to increase by 8 to 12%. Without the dedication, innovation and initiative of Realtors® and industry professionals, such a remarkable recovery would not be possible. Your NVAR staff and leadership team are here as your industry and professional partners to continue driving this momentum.
Take advantage of your NVAR membership to stay at the top of your game. Embrace innovation, engage with your industry, and help shape the next 100 years of real estate in Northern Virginia.
