Why Us?

Because this campaign's about WE, not ME.

Now is the time for us to build our future — together. WE make up the National Association of REALTORS, and this campaign is ready, willing, and able to build the team that will lead it into the future.

Our Goal

We know we can’t be all things for all people, yet our best intentions have us try to be. Our leadership must focus on what is most important: to positively impact the lives of our membership, our staff, and the communities we shape. It is not about doing everything — it is about doing a few big things really, really well. Let’s do that, together!

Our Vision

We have an opportunity to reshape our future. To focus our association on crucial priorities. To truly connect with our members so they know all we do for them, and what else we can do. We will answer why, and will ensure that the doors that may have seemed closed to some, are finally open to all.

Experience matters. Here’s why.

National Association of REALTORS

  • RPAC Hall of Fame Inductee-$50K level
  • REALTOR Party Director 2016
  • Region 8 Vice President 2013
  • National Fundraising Liaison 2012
  • NAR Director: 2007 – present
  • Certified Code of Ethics Instructor
  • Certified NAR Strategic Planning Facilitator

As with many leaders in this great Association, this list goes on and on over the past 15 years. It is not about all the stuff he’s been involved in, it’s about why it matters. Daryl spent a decade in policy, MLS, Professional Standards, Ethics and many other areas of our Association, AND a decade-plus in the REALTOR Party side. This unique experience matters, as he has been on both sides, in both Chicago and D.C. and can speak to, lead and impact our entire organization.

North Dakota and Minnesota Associations of REALTORS

  • President, NDAR: 2010
  • President-Elect of NDAR 2009
  • Vice President, NDAR: 2008
  • MNAR Director: 2010-2016
  • NDAR Director: 2006-present

As with his national involvement, Daryl’s state-level activities include work in professional standards, equal opportunity, membership services, finance, RPAC and much more. He started teaching Ethics to members over 15 years ago and has gone on to help Associations throughout the US with leadership training, coaching, and strategic planning for the future. Why does this matter? He is involved in a small state AND a large state, he’s lived through the struggles of boards throughout the US, and has learned from time in the trenches not just in the midwest, but around the US.


Fargo-Moorhead Area Association of REALTORS

  • President, Board of Directors: 2006
  • Director in Charge, RPAC: 2004
  • Chair, Financial Oversight Committee for several years beginning in 2008

As with many of you, Daryl started in his hometown Association. He’s chaired several committees, served on most others, and was awarded the Distinguished Service Award in 2014. Why does this matter? He started over 20 years ago, and has cut his teeth at the grassroots level of our Association. He’s a learner, a listener, and can take charge when needed. Our Association is broad and far reaching, and right from the beginning Daryl was involved in all aspects, not just one track.
