We are excited to welcome Jerry Moscowitz as MAR’s 2023 President! Read on for an introduction to Jerry and what he hopes to accomplish in the coming months:
I’m Jerry Moscowitz, your Minneapolis Area Realtor® President for 2023. I have been a Realtor® for the last 20 years, and I began my involvement with MAR in 2017. Since then, I have chaired the Government Affairs Committee, enjoyed countless MAR events, gotten to know some great industry peers, and sat on the Board of Directors (most recently on the Executive Committee). Other involvement beyond MAR is that I’m on the Board of Directors for the State, Chair the Communications Committee and I’m a past state president for CRS.
The bar has been set high by 2022 MAR President, Denise Mazone. I have watched her lead the Association and am excited to build on what she started. The top of the list of what I want to build on is our recent apology for—and policy work around—the significant racial disparities in homeownership. What was accomplished last year regarding the public apology was so important, yet without follow up and a drive led by planned actions, we won’t achieve our goal of reaching a day where homeownership is genuinely accessible for all.
I really hope as the year goes on, you will see the different things we are doing to provide a better experience for our members, Realtors® just like me. I will be out attending events and listening to the members that make up our Association. It is so important to hear what people have to say, not just in the boardroom. When the year is over, you should expect to see the Association continuing to move forward and making adjustments to what helps our members the most. When my year has concluded, I hope it was very clear just how much I cared for our members and our industry and how driven I was to help more people become homeowners.
