Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty (RSIR) is thrilled to announce that our Designated Broker, Michael Ford, was voted into the position of North Regional Director for the Seattle King County REALTORS®. Ford was previously appointed to the position when a space became available between election years, and will now continue in his capacity as North Regional Director for a full two-year term. Ford’s recent achievement is preceded by his 22 year-long reputation for strong mentorship, broker support, and leadership in business development and educational broker training.
“I look forward to continuing my participation in the creation and implementation of policies designed to give brokers the tools to help foster home ownership,” said Ford. “I feel it is important to lend my voice to the cause of brokers working to help people achieve their real estate goals.”
As a long-time successful broker and manager who currently oversees 5 RSIR offices comprising nearly 200 real estate agents, Ford is acutely aware of the need for an organization whose primary purpose is to ensure real estate brokers have the most current education and legal support, as well as an avenue for brokers to take their causes directly to lawmakers.
“As a smart, savvy and sensitive leader who cultivates next generation real estate professionals, Michael inspires our brokers and has offered strong operational support in what has been a pivotal time both in our marketplace and for our brand,” said Dean Jones, President and CEO of RSIR. “All of us at RSIR offer him a warm congratulations and look forward to his participation in this renowned organization.”
As the Seattle King County REALTORS® website describes, the organization’s mission is to create “a thriving and ethical business environment for members through education, advocacy and tools that support member success. We protect and promote the right to own, transfer and use real property.”
