Message from the President
Dear fellow members of the Laredo Association of REALTORS®,
I am honored to serve as your 2023 President and look forward to working with you. It has been a busy and unprecedented time for REALTORS®. Demand for housing hit an all-time high in 2021, and Texas REALTORS® saw many multiple-offer situations, including homes that attracted dozens of offers and sold for well above the asking price. Statewide, the median home price reached $300,000, up 15.7% from the prior year. Even though all of these changes and pressure from our industry, we have been able to persevere and address changes in various needs.
Our board continues to work diligently to improve communication within our association and the community in order to create an exceptional experience for all. Let’s unite and work together for a better tomorrow. We welcome your opinion and encourage your participation in our upcoming events. Your contribution and collaboration with other members and staff is essential to our growth and prosperity. If you or anyone you know wishes to participate, please feel free to contact Monica at 956- 712-4400.
I sincerely request that you continue to favor us with your valued support.
