Alaska Association of REALTORS Introduces New Logo

This has been a year of change for the Alaska Association of REALTORS®.  Under the leadership of President Angie Tallant of Somers & Associates in Fairbanks, the Association has completed its first cycle of NAR’s “Core Standards,” which ups the bar for all NAR Associations.

To comply with many directives in Core Standards, President Tallant and Information Management Key Work Group  Chair Devon Thomas decided to re-brand the Association at the same time.

It was time for a change.  A new look for the logo, a new look and new functionality for the website, and with a new CEO at the helm.  Sandy Eherenman has worked hard to train our new CEO Bob Manwaring and, fortunately for us, this transition has been a smooth one.

Angie and Devon worked diligently with buzzbizz Studios to come up with a logo that encompasses all facets of our real estate industry: Residential, Commercial and Land.  Incorporated together to create one logo, which represents our entire membership, we are proud to introduce the Alaska Association of REALTORS® new logo to you.
