From Shahe Seuylemezian, January 2017

Dear PFAR Members,

On behalf of the 2017 PFAR Board of Directors, I wish to express a sincere thank you to 2016 President Bill Podley, the outgoing Board, and our amazing staff for all their hard work this past year.

I am excited about the opportunity given to me to serve as President, and I look forward to a productive and positive year ahead of us!

Raising the Bar

During my remarks at the Inaugural and Awards Luncheon last December, I mentioned we were all responsible for “raising the bar” of professionalism, integrity and service within our association and to our clients. I now actively seek new volunteers to help in this important work and to expand our membership. If you have never gotten involved at PFAR before, this is the perfect time to start.

Help Protect the Real Estate Profession and Homeowners’ Rights

Your contribution to the REALTOR® Action Fund (RAF) ensures our place at governmental decision-making tables. RAF raises money to advance the goals of political action committees (PACs) at the local, state and federal levels. It also empowers us to support or oppose candidates for elected office who may or may not understand real estate issues. If you care about the future of our industry, community and property rights, contribute to RAF today! Contribute Now

Strive for Excellence in 2017

I call on every one of my fellow PFAR members to raise the bar in 2017. Individually, we have the ability and responsibility to set higher standards. Together, we can create an industry that is constructive, supportive and compassionate to each other and to our community. Already one of the strongest real estate boards in the nation, PFAR must continue strengthening its voice in the protection and promotion of private property rights and the American dream of homeownership.

Let’s get to work!

Shahe Seuylemezian
2017 President
Pasadena-Foothills Association of REALTORS®
