Message From our 2016 President, Jeff Hans
Welcome to the home page of the Poway Real Estate Professionals (PREP). Founded in 1969, the organization was designed to provide a forum for Realtors to showcase their recently listed properties and to hold them open so their colleagues could view the current inventory available for sale. The original concept of the organization has been augmented through the addition of real estate oriented business professionals (affiliates) as members. The combination of both Realtors and affiliates provides for the sharing of both current listings, business tips and services that are real estate related along with the latest in community news.
The weekly meetings have enhanced how the new listings are showcased with the addition of a full color Power Point presentation on each property. This is projected on a large screen as the listing Realtor describes the most compelling features of the property. The meeting also includes a brief “Mortgage Minute” along with a 2-3 minute presentation from the weekly “featured” affiliate regarding the benefits of their particular product or service. California Association of Realtors, San Diego Association of Realtors and special broker announcements are also imparted throughout the course of the year as they pertain to the organization and real estate as a whole.
PREP is a non profit membership organization with annual dues of $ 50. The membership fee covers administrative costs and, most importantly, augments financial contributions given back to the community. We also host weekly “opportunity drawings” to assist in raising moneys that is then donated to various charitable organizations and to benefit the local schools. Our donations made to date in 2016 total $4100. Last year in 2015 PREP donated $4,750 to Poway High Schools “Grad Night” and other local charities. PREP Realtor members are required to be members of both the California Association of Realtors (CAR) and the National Association of Realtors (NAR) because both organizations require that Realtors subscribe to a national Code of Ethics governing their daily business practices. We are proud and honored to be contributing members of the city of Poway and the surrounding communities.
All the Best.
