The Mid Columbia Association of Realtors (MCAR) has selected Nan Wimmers of Columbia Gorge Real Estate as the association’s 2015 Realtor of the Year.
Wimmers has not only been involved in local and state associations during her 22 year real estate career, she is president-elect of the MCAR.
She is active in her community, serving on boards and committees, and volunteers at Home At Last Humane Society, The Dalles Area Chamber, Meals On Wheels, Fort Dalles Museum, Business Issues for Oregon Realtors, is district vice president for Eastern Oregon and the Columbia Gorge for Oregon Realtors.
She is a native of the Hood River Valley and started in the real estate business in 1992.
The Realtor of the Year is selected based on a mix of criteria relating to knowledge, ethics and involvement in the industry.
MCAR has over 190 members from five Oregon and Washington counties in the Columbia River Gorge. It is the area’s largest trade association and is affiliated with both the Oregon and Washington Association of Realtors.
The nonprofit organization was originally established in 1961 as The Dalles Board of Realtors to promote good ethics and standards among those involved in real estate, and offer them opportunities for industry education and information. It gradually expanded to include five counties in Oregon and Washington.
The association annually selects a member to honor as being exemplary. The selection is made by a committee, which included representatives from four different brokerages.
