Real Estate 2023: RYAN T. McLAUGHLIN
CEO, NORTHERN VIRGINIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS, FAIRFAX COUNTY
One of the largest regional Realtor associations in the United States, the Northern Virginia Association of Realtors represents approximately 13,000 real estate professionals transacting more than $18 billion in sales annually in the Washington, D.C., metro area.
McLaughlin became its CEO in 2015, after serving as CEO of Greater Lehigh Valley Realtors in Pennsylvania. A graduate of East Stroudsburg University and the State University of New York at Albany, McLaughlin also completed an executive education program, Authentic Leader Development, at Harvard Business School.
The 102-year-old NVAR represents sales agents, brokers, property managers and other real estate professionals in Arlington and Fairfax counties, Fairfax city, Alexandria and Falls Church. Aside from offering continuing education for members, the organization provides reports on home sales in the region and residential sales forecasts. In June, NVAR reported it expected the housing market in Northern Virginia to remain a sellers’ market for the rest of the year, and mortgage rates to remain higher than pre-pandemic rates.
