Past and Present Leaders

If you, or a Berkshire County REALTOR® you know are interested in serving on the Board of Directors, please check out the information we have on-line to join the ranks of leadership!

About the Board

Our mission is to provide resources to our members so they may serve consumers in an ethical and professional manner.

A Close Look at the Board of REALTORS

The Berkshire County Board of Realtors® is a strong and thriving trade association geared to service professional real estate licensees in the region. Only those who pledge themselves to a higher level of ethical business practice can elect to join the Board and can use the term REALTOR®.  Currently there are over 500 REALTORS in Berkshire County, and over 1 million nationwide. Our focus on education and learning is paramount – enhancement of professional practice is a key initiative for our Board.

Professional Staff

The Board of REALTORs and Multiple Listing Service is run by a professional staff of three.  They work diligently on behalf of all members and coordinate the activities of hundreds of volunteers during the course of a year.  The staff is led by Sandy Carroll, Chief Executive Officer, RCE and she works with the Board’s elected leadership shown below. More information about the staff

Berkshire County Board of REALTORS Board of Directors

The Officers of the Board are elected by the membership at the Annual Meeting in October and are comprised of brokers and sales agents throughout Berkshire County. The REALTOR® Board of Directors typically meet every 6 weeks. (special meetings can be called by the President)

The Multiple Listing Service Board of Directors

The MLS Board is comprised primarily of broker-owner Participants of the Service, also elected at the Annual Meeting. These candidates represent not only our diverse region, but also of diverse business types. The MLS Board is comprised of no more than three sales agents, at least one broker-owner from each council, and brokers specializing in various markets as well.

State & National Directors

The Berkshires are provided 2 state director positions based on our size percentage compared to other boards in Massachusetts. These two positions are appointed by the current year president, along with one alternate director. The President of the Berkshire County Board of REALTORS® is granted, by MAR bylaw, a seat on the Massachusetts Board of Directors along with our 2 representatives. Additionally, there is one regional Vice President elected from Western Mass that also receive a vote on the MAR BOD, and this selection is made by all state directors in the Berkshire, Hampshire, Hampden and Franklin counties. Every 2-4 years that candidate is from Berkshire County. Finally, those members who run for an election to National leadership and obtain a seat on the NAR board of Directors are granted an automatic appointment to the MAR Board of Directors.
