A message from Jessica Reinhardt, DMAR Board Chair:

Welcome to your 2022 Annual Report. This is a brief recap of the activities the Board of Directors and Denver Metro Association of Realtors® staff performed on behalf of you, our member. From advocacy to education, it was our privilege to serve our membership this year.

This year we brought several new and exciting initiatives and programs to our membership. First, I want to highlight our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion efforts. Our leadership team and task force of DMAR members reviewed and revised our Association bylaws to reflect current practices, and align with our vision of making DMAR more diverse, equitable and inclusive. As a result, we added two new seats to our Board of Directors: one for the Asian Real Estate Association of America (AREAA) and one for the LGBTQ+ Real Estate Alliance. These two seats are in addition to the seats we already proudly reserve for the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals® (NAHREP) and the National Association of Real Estate Brokers. Being a more diverse and inclusive Association will allow us to better serve our members and communities.

Another project that came to fruition this year was the launch of our new charitable foundation, DMAR Gives. This program envisions a Denver Metro community in which everyone has access to stable housing, equality in the homebuying process and support in achieving self-sufficiency in life. DMAR Gives will provide funding to programs that improve the quality of life for Coloradans and create a path toward stable housing and homeownership, as well as housing-related disaster relief in the communities where our members live and work.

We introduced several new programs and member offerings this year but two stand out. First, in the spring of 2022, we hosted our first-ever consumer-facing event: Housapalooza. This first-of-its-kind housing fair was an excellent one-day experience for first-time home buyers and sellers and their Realtors®. We had some incredible panels and speakers, and it was certainly a memorable and highly informative day for all who attended. Second, we launched a brand-new app that is free for all members and their clients. The DMAR Home Kit makes finding local professionals and housing market  updates as easy as a tap of your finger. It’s your one-stop-shop for connecting with top home service pros near you, accessing exclusive discounts and offers, finding award-winning market stats and more.

We would be remiss if we did not recognize the leaders of our 2021-2022 Board of Directors:
