Board of Directors Candidate Bio
Brock Deering - Running For A Director Spot
My Name is Brock Deering and I grew up outside of Valders and have been around the area my whole life. I went to UW Milwaukee for a couple of years and came back to the area and have been doing Real Estate since and I think I have found my niche. I love the feeling of being able to help people with one of the biggest financial decisions of their lives and making sure they love the result. Since starting in the beginning of the pandemic I have still found myself loving what I do everyday. I have taken the Professional Standards training and have already served on multiple hearings. I am also a member of the Boards Golf Committee. Thank you for taking the time to read a little bit about myself!
Due to technology issues, Brock's bio was not included in the prior email sent with the other candidate bios.
Excluded Listing Info - Metro MLS
Because of our change in contract with MetroMLS, there are now new Excluded Listing Procedures to follow. Please read the document below. Excluded listings incur a $50 fee, which will be added on to your monthly bills, starting in July.
Single party listings can still be sent to the Board office.

What's Up In The Office
This is a busy time of year, with things like elections, budget season, Affiliate Night, etc! There is never a shortage of things to work on! We also continue to have more new members joining (both Realtor and Affiliate), which keeps me busy as well. And while MetroMLS is now doing most of the MLS policing/work, I still have not completely removed myself while we are in transition. I want to ensure that everyone is getting the best customer service and all questions are answered!
Next week I will only be in the office physically on Monday and Wednesday. Tuesday I will be out at Par 5 for the Continuing Ed classes, and on Thursday and Friday I will be in Madison for the Association Executive Council and WRA Board meetings. I will do the best I can to reply to emails, however phone calls from Thursday and Friday wont be returned until Monday the 10th.
Have a great rest of your week!
