NEFAR to welcome a new board of directors in January

A sprinkling of new faces will join a cast of seasoned directors when NEFAR welcomes its 2022 Board of Directors at the Installation and Awards Ceremony Thursday evening, January 13 at the Jacksonville Marriott.

NEFAR President Missi Howell will pass the president’s gavel to Mark Rosener, a regional director with Watson Realty Corp. 2021 NEFAR Treasurer Diana Galavis will serve as the new president-elect, while 2021 Secretary Rory Dubin will move into the treasurer’s seat and Tiea Vincent, who served as a director in 2021, will take over Dubin’s duties as secretary.

New to the board of directors in 2022 will be Christian Oliva of Watson Realty Corp, Lisa Brannon of eXp Realty, Lauren Rohman of Traditions Realty, Gonzalo Mejia of Watson Realty Corp, and Jennifer Tossavainen of Coldwell Banker Vanguard Realty. A popular instructor in NEFAR’s Education Academy, Mejia is already familiar to many NEFAR members. Tossavainen will also serve as president of realMLS.

2021 board members who will continue to serve as directors are Andrew Bell of NextHome Assurance Realty, Samantha Heflin of Watson Realty Corp., Jan Jenkins of Select Home Realty Group, Sonny Downey of EXIT Real Estate Gallery, Audrey Lackie of The Legends of Real Estate, Susan Severson of eXp Realty, Mario Gonzalez of Navy to Navy Homes, Cole Slate of Slate Real Estate, DeDee Harper of Harper & Associates Real Estate, and Scott Nyman of eXp Realty.

Their hard work and commitment to NEFAR is greatly appreciated.
