Dulles Area Association of REALTORS® Prepares for Annual Economic Summit

The Dulles Area Association of REALTORS® (DAAR) is hard at work preparing for its 2020 Economic Summit, which will be held on March 6th at the Loudoun County School Administrative Building. Attendees will learn what’s in store for housing and other aspects of the local economy from three expert guest speakers. Final touches are being put in place for the summit, which is expected to welcome more than 125 attendees.

The Economic Summit has been one of DAAR’s most prominent annual events for 12 years. Attending REALTORS® and members of the general public will learn about housing and economic trends and hear expert forecasts for 2020 and thereafter.

“The DAAR Economic Summit is one my favorite real estate events of the year,” said DAAR Vice President of Professional Development, Omni Casey. “In addition to being able to network with hundreds of Loudoun county agents, the information that we gain is invaluable. The guest presenters always provide useful market and economic data that help to give us a broader understanding of the market influences as a whole. I can’t wait to attend the DAAR Economic Summit this year!”

The DAAR Economic Summit will welcome three guest speakers to the stage, including National Association of REALTORS® Senior Economist and Director of Forecasting Nadia Evangelou, who will speak about current residential and commercial market trends on the national and Northern Virginia levels, and beyond. Director of the Loudoun County Department of Economic Development Buddy Rizer will give a presentation about projected economic development and growth in Loudoun County with an eye on Metrorail, data centers and key industry target areas. Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond Vice President and Regional Executive Renee Haltom will speak about economic growth prospects, residential and non-residential sector outlooks and sources of uncertainty.

This week, DAAR staff and volunteers are finalizing the guest registration roster and confirming refreshment orders, eager to perfect the minutia surrounding the popular event as it nears.

“DAAR prides itself on being an organization that our REALTORS®, Affiliates and our local community can depend upon for current and relevant local housing information,” said 2020 DAAR President Barry Taylor. “We are looking forward to welcoming our guest speakers and hearing their forecasts for this year.”
