2019 OMDREB Elections
To my fellow Realtors who are members of the Oakville, Milton and District Real Estate Board…I need your help!!
My name is Stjepan Rasic and I’m running for Director in this years OMDREB Elections, and I’m asking for your vote.
I’m running as Director because I believe the role of our Board is to help our members be more productive and successful Realtors by providing them with the tools they need to sell Real Estate. It’s as simple as that! Over the next month I will be sharing details of how I believe we can help each other achieve this goal. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.
I work for RE/MAX Aboutowne in Oakville and I have been a Realtor for 6 years. Prior to that I have spent over 18 years in IT, servicing both the Real Estate and Financial sectors. I have lead teams both as a consultant and small business owner, helping people become more productive through the use of technology. My goal as Director is to give you the tools you need so you can focus your time on selling real estate. I will focus on providing a better reporting system where our members can easily generate not just MLS listings and raw spreadsheets, but customized, formatted market reports. Our ability to analyze market data is our greatest asset, but our time is best spent servicing our clients, not formatting reports. I have spent years in the IT industry both as a Lead Developer and a Project Manager building reporting tools. I have seen how beneficial they can be to the end user, and I have the background to lead this important initiative. We finally have the data…now let’s use it!
The landscape of our industry is changing. Sold data is becoming public, online services like Zillow are coming to Canada, more and more people are researching online. We should look to leverage our MLS system with our own online presence. We can do this by enabling our websites to not simply be a landing page, but a resource for potential clients. Our message should be…anyone can read a sales stat…but if you want to understand it…speak to a Realtor!
I am asking for your Vote! Should there be other issues important to you please do not hesitate to contact me directly.
We finally have the data…now let’s use it! Thank you!
