Napier REALTORS® ERA; 23 years

DESIGNATIONS:

Certified Mentor for Buffini & Company; Graduate of ERA Real Estate’s Leadership Academy, RAR’s Educator of the Year

EXPERIENCE AT RAR:

Mark Joyner

MLS, Grievance and Professional Standards Committees, and Chairman of the MLS and Grievance Committees, past member of the RAR Board of Directors

HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED IN REAL ESTATE?

Being the son of Ken Joyner, President of Wedgewood Properties, Inc. (a local custom home building firm), I’ve been around homes & land development my whole life. I graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance & Real Estate from James Madison University. Real estate was a perfect fit for me as a people person.

OFFICE AND YEARS IN REAL ESTATE:

Dominion First Realty, President/Broker; 35 years.

DESIGNATIONS:

CRB, CRS, GRI

John Finn

Live music at Innsbrook, the Watermelon Festival, fireworks at the Diamond, the Music for Massey concert, and fishing on the James River

FAVORITE VACATION SPOT:

As a kid, I enjoyed Roamer’s Cottages in Nags Head, NC. In my twenties, Cancun was my favorite destination. In my thirties it was Scottsdale, AZ and Las Vegas, NV. However; after taking my 3 children, Sam, Olivia, and Hannah to Assateague Island, that is now my number one destination.

HOBBIES & ACTIVITIES OUTSIDE THE OFFICE:

I enjoy playing soccer, especially now that I qualify for the over 40 league! I tinker on my Harley and my Jeep when I have time. I enjoy biking and hikes in the mountains around Charlottesville. My favorite activities are anything I do with my kids.

FAVORITE RICHMOND TRADITION:

Style Weekly’s “You are very Richmond If…” contest. I actually won the contest in 1988. I also enjoy the Labor Day West End Reunion, Arts in the Park, the 2nd Street Festival, and the Alpha Black & Gold Ball.

HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED IN REAL ESTATE?

HOBBIES & ACTIVITIES OUTSIDE THE OFFICE:

Grievance and Legislative Committees, RPAC Subcommittee, Graduate of the Inaugural Class of Leadership Development Academy, current RAR RPAC Trustee

I grew up around bricks and mortar. I worked for my father as a laborer in high school and college. I figured the brokerage end of the Real Estate Business had to be easier than nailing shingles in 90 degree heat. RAREALTORS.COM

FAVORITE RICHMOND TRADITIONS:

Rehoboth Beach, Delaware is where I go to relax with my family. When it comes to excitement and people watching, there’s no place like South Beach, Miami.

I enjoy golf, working with troubled youth, and volunteering with the Metropolitan Business League and the Alpha Phi Alpha Scholarship Foundation. In my house we live for Alabama Football, VCU Basketball & “da Bears!” 2013, 2013, ISSUE ISSUE 33

POST LICENSURE EDUCATION DECEMBER 31ST DEADLINE TO COMPLETE POST LICENSURE EDUCATION Substantial changes to the education requirements for new salesperson licensees went into effect July 1, 2013. These changes have special significance for new salespersons who obtained their real estate licenses between January 1 and June 30th of this year. These licensees must complete their 30 hour education requirements by December 31, 2013 – regardless of their actual one year license anniversary date. If the 30 hour PLE education requirements have not been completed by December 31, 2013, the hours taken will expire, and the licensee must then complete all 30 hours under the new Single Post Licensure Education (SPLE) track by their one year license anniversary date. The RAR Education Passport Program can help you complete your remaining required PLE hours. PLE Passport allows you to select a customized set of PLE classes covering the hours you need and register for those classes at a 30% discount. This RAR member benefit is available to all new salesperson licensees who need to complete their education hours before the end of the year.

2013 IN REVIEW

AND A LOOK AHEAD

As the year comes to a close, the staff and leadership at RAR reflect with pride and gratitude on what we’ve accomplished this year through the privilege of serving our members. Some of these achievements have produced tangible benefits; adding substantial value to RAR membership.

A group of members joined RAR’s Director of Government Affairs and Member Services, Elizabeth Greenfield for “REALTOR® Day on the Hill.”

Others have been more “behind the scenes”— but nonetheless pivotal in RAR’s mission to help ensure our members’ success. This particular year, much emphasis was placed on improvements in CVR MLS technology—helping to bolster members’ efficiency and market knowledge. RAR Education added new courses to ensure that members remain in tune with industry dynamics and regulatory amendments. Members with interest in government affairs, regional developments, and market research were provided with ample opportunities to increase their knowledge in these areas—as RAR brought in several community leaders and experts this year to speak to members about these topics. Here is a look back at some of the highlights of 2013:

CAPCENTER MORTGAGE CLOSINGS ARE ALWAYS A PIECE OF CAKE. The perfect closing – it’s what every realtor hopes for. No mistakes. No surprises. Just smooth sailing with every detail covered so everybody leaves the table happy. That’s how we do things at CapCenter. Great rates and zero closing costs are our recipe for success with borrowers.

But we add two other special ingredients that realtors really like, also—a streamlined easy loan process and attorney representation for our customers at closing, paid for by CapCenter. So our closings are a piece of cake. And for our realtor partners, that leaves a very sweet taste in their mouths.
