...sustainability resources

New sustainability resource website,, features a directory of available tax and financial incentives for “green” remodels. Use the site to educate yourself and be the resource to your clients on healthy homes, green building, and much more.

...a fresh approach

In 2012, PMAR launched a local Young Professionals Network. Their first two events were packed with young (and young at heart) agents meeting, mingling and sharing tools for success.

PMAR is an assoc iation deeply rooted in providing value to its members. Your dues dollar works very hard for you at PMAR to deliver va lue in excess of the price. — Jeff Wiren, RE /MA X

Equity Group


2012 marked the debut of our new e-publication, eNews, with in-depth articles by your fellow Realtors® on transactional etiquette and ethics, time management, working with appraisers and more.


Ensured the ability to use For Sale and Open House signs in Sherwood and Wilsonville without having to pay a fee. Educated candidates for public office on the value of homeownership and the importance of the Realtors®’ right to conduct business. Met with members of U.S. Congress to advocate preservation of the Mortgage Interest Deduction.

In just the legislative arena alone, I can think of dozens of things that could have almost killed our business were it not for the diligence of your Realtor® Association. —Gary Taylor, Summa Professionals Real Estate Group

aging in place

Real estate is the largest single asset held by households headed by someone 65 or older, according to Harvard University’s Joint Center for Housing Studies. Our homeownership resource site, is about to get even better with new resources that could help seniors live in their homes longer.

get social

PMAR will establish niche industry groups on Facebook, giving members the opportunity to discuss real estate issues in-depth. Are you a one-person shop looking for a network of support? A new agent needing help? We’ve got your back.

rethinking education

In 2013, we’re focusing on what we excel at—education with trusted, expert speakers. We’ll continue to offer one of the best LARRC classes around. Low-cost classes with CE credit at the RMLSTM Trade Fair. Breakfast seminars for members who work with commercial and investor clients. And, for the first time, we’re offering webinars—earn CE credit without leaving your office.
