2017 Board of Directors Election Results

With a great voter turnout, six REALTOR®/Designated REALTOR® members have been elected/reelected to the Association's 2018 Board of Directors to serve three-year terms commencing on January 1, 2018. Directors elections are held annually and involve the election/reelection of REALTOR®/ Designated REALTOR®/Affiliate members to replace outgoing directors completing their terms of office. This year's ballot count produced the following results:
Kelly L. Canady - Coldwell Banker Previews Int'l
Fanny Y. Chu - BHG J.F. Finnegan REALTORS®
Marc Dickow - Core7 Real Estate
Jeannie Gant - Dot Real Estate
Eugene Pak - Climb Real Estate
Andrea F. Swetland - Vanguard Properties

The Association extends its congratulations to the newly elected and reelected directors and its best wishes that their service on the board of directors will be most rewarding. Expressions of appreciation are due to those who were not elected/reelected at this time for their interest in serving as directors. The continued success of the Association is dependent upon the willingness of REALTOR®/Designated REALTOR®/Affiliate members to serve on policy-making bodies, such as the board of directors, and we should all be grateful to the candidates for manifesting that willingness.


SFAR is deeply committed to supporting next-generation MLS technologies, specifically the Advanced Multi-List Platform™ (AMP). AMP is an initiative by Realtors Property Resource® (RPR), fully funded by the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR). The AMP system is built around the idea that APIs can, and should, power most of the typical uses of MLS listing data (website display, notifications about updates, interoperability with many mobile apps, etc.).



SFAR is currently collaborating with the teams at RPR and RobotiK Software to build RobotiK MLS (a model "front end of choice") using San Francisco MLS listing data. We are also working with our technology partners Transparent Properties Inc. (creators of MyPropertyOffice), Rapattoni MLS, and others to investigate the possibility of working together to create API based solutions for Brokers and Agents.

You can read more about the AMP™ project on their website. If you have any questions about SFAR's involvement in this or other projects, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Fraudulent Email with Virus Links

SFAR has once again been targeted with a scam for a fraudulent certification being circulated via email today. Please make sure you, and your users, do NOT click on the appointment time links, as they go to a website that has malware and could infect your computer with a virus.

Here is what the email looks like, with warnings inserted:

fraud registration email 2017-08-28

There is no need to contact SFAR if you see the fraudulent email, just be aware and tell others that you work with to avoid clicking on the links. As usual, the email does not carry official looking intro, or signature/footers. The wordiness of the grammar and lack of correct abbreviation, etc... are your clues.
