On December 9, 2013, the Portland Metropolitan Association of Realtors® (PMAR) named our very own Bill Barry the 2013 Realtor® of the Year.
The PMAR Realtor® of the Year award is the highest honor bestowed by PMAR, and recognizes service to the Realtor® association, community involvement, and business accomplishments over the recipient’s career.
Bill’s service to the Realtor® Association is extensive, including serving as PMAR President in 2000. He played a significant role in development of the public service homeownership information website, HOWNW.com™, serving as chairman of that task force in 2007.
This year, Bill chaired a task force to develop aging in place resources to add to the “Forever Home” section of the website. For four years, Bill volunteered as an instructor for the Homeownership Opportunities Certification Course.
In addition to his work with HOWNW.com™, Bill contributed significant volunteer time and leadership during his role as Chairman of Oregon Real Estate Forms in 2011.
Past service includes National Association of Realtors® Director, Vice President of Member Services, Local Director, State Director and Chairman of the PMAR PAC Trustees. For the past eight years, he has served as the volunteer photographer for the Portland First Citizen event.
Bill is committed to continued professional development and has achieved the GRI, ePRO, SRES, NAR At Home with Diversity and the PMAR Homeownership Certified Specialist designations.
In addition to his volunteer work with PMAR, Bill has been a Royal Rosarian for over 10 years and serves as their official volunteer photographer for Rose Festival activities. He is the photographer and marketing manager for the Portland Gay Men’s Chorus, and a member of Metro Community Church and Lake Oswego Christ Church.
From all of us at Realty Trust, we offer our sincere congratulations to Bill, who is a wonderful agent, colleague, partner, mentor and friend.
Our hearts go out to those left homeless by Super Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines and by the recent storms in the Midwest.
