My Q1 2023 Letter to the DAAR Membership:

Dear DAAR Members,

My name is Allan Marteney and I’m proud to be serving as your 2023 DAAR President.

Having been a member of DAAR for more than 20 years, and even previously serving as a staff member at DAAR, I can say it is truly an honor and a privilege to represent this great Association.

Entering the new year, the shifting market is undoubtedly top of mind for REALTORS®. And while these times of turbulence can seem daunting, there is no greater time to lean on your Association and utilize the resources it provides.

As outlined in DAAR’s 2022-24 Strategic Plan, the Association is committed to delivering exceptional development opportunities to elevate your skills and professionalism, and ultimately helping you succeed.  

One opportunity I hope many of you will take advantage of is the upcoming Economic Summit on March 8. This is a tremendous event each and every year, and 2023 will be no different. Economic experts at the national, regional and local level will provide timely data and insight to help you position yourself for a successful year.

Take your education a step further by exploring DAAR’s excellent professional development opportunities offered throughout the year. Whether you’re looking to set yourself apart with a new designation or certification, or even earn your broker’s license, the Association can help you get there. Be sure to review DAAR’s Class Calendar and get registered today.  

Another great way to earn distinction is by applying for DAAR’s 2022 REALTOR® Awards. The applications are open through March 3, and we’re excited to be launching a new online application process this year. I look forward to gathering for the event on April 19 to celebrate all your successes from the past year!

Like I mentioned in my installation speech last month, being engaged in the Association has opened doors for me that I truly would not have had otherwise. While the market may be unpredictable, DAAR is steadfast in its commitment to providing resources to help advance and support your career. I challenge you all to find new ways to get involved in the Association in 2023. I am confident you won’t regret it.  

Finally, I would be remiss to not thank Rich Blessing for his outstanding leadership as DAAR President in 2022. All year, I watched the passion and dedication he put into the role, and can say without question that DAAR is in a better position from his service.

I’m looking forward to leading, learning and seeing all that the Association and our REALTORS® will accomplish this year. Please reach out to me with questions or suggestions at
