Board of Realtors to hold industry fair and annual meeting


October 12, 2003|By Trif Alatzas

The Greater Baltimore Board of Realtors has scheduled its 17th annual fair for Wednesday in Woodlawn as unprecedented housing sales continue.

More than 500 people are expected for the one-day event, which will include seminars to help agents and brokers fulfill their state licensing requirements, networking sessions and vendors who supply services and products for the industry.

The group also will hold its annual meeting there.

The Greater Baltimore Board of Realtors - founded in 1858 and the oldest real estate board in the country - represents 3,200 agents and brokers in the area. The group has grown from about 2,400 members three years ago.

The housing industry has been one of the few bright spots in a fickle economy that dates to 2000. Because of extraordinarily low interest rates and a weak supply of homes for sale, demand has reached all-time highs. Sales have set records in the past two years and are on a pace to do so again this year.

The event is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Martin's West, 6817 Dogwood Road. Registration at the door is $50.
