It is with great honor that we report that Brad Dousevicz, of Dousevicz Real Estate, was sworn in as the 2013 President for the Homebuilders and Remodelers Association of Northern Vermont for 2013, at it's annual meeting on January 7th, 2013. Brad has served in a variety of roles over the recent years, and was most recently the Vice President of Finance for the HBRA, and is excited to be part of such a wonderful group of builders, suppliers, and associate members. It was an exciting evening with guest speakers including Jerry Howard- CEO of the National Association of Homebuilders. Jerry offered our membership a unique perspective on not only the improving (yet fragile) market conditions, but the interesting and pivotal role national politics play on the homebuilding and real estate markets. The association was also honored to have Governor Peter Shumlin in attendance as well. Governor Shumlin emphasized his commitment to support the overall housing industry in Vermont, but also committed to providing support on a national basis as well as the standing chair of the democratic governors association when he meets with President Obama later this year. Brad will be attending the National Association of Homebuilders home show in Las Vegas January 22-January 24. The show provides extensive and world renowned educational opportunities in real estate marketing, home construction, development and real estate law.
