Happy New Year! I am looking forward to serving you as the Shoals Area Association of REALTORS 2018 President. When I joined the Association as a new REALTOR I quickly learned the value of being plugged. I have enjoyed the learning that I have received, support and the relationships that it has brought me. I strongly encourage everyone to get involved!


This year we have some changes coming, mainly with the new MLS regulations. We are working on the implementation at our Association. I am thankful that we have our wonderful Association Executive, Valerie Regan, with us who has just completed her first year as our AE! Please be sure to thank her for all of her hard work! I look forward to this year and working with Valerie to continue moving us forward and keeping us up to date on all changes from NAR.


We have already met with several of the committee chairs and charged them with some tasks to complete this year! New member orientation is going to get an exciting refresh, affiliate and membership committees are ready to roll and community involvement is going to work on some great projects to better our community! Please be willing to jump in and help!


I would love to see you involved at membership events. We are moving the time and location of the monthly meetings and hope that this will help more people to be able to attend. The program committee is hard at work to bring us speakers that are relevant as well as informative. Thank you for your hard work on this!


If I can ever be of assistance please call or email me anytime.


Thank you for the opportunity to serve,

Katie Faires
