The Pacific Southwest Association of REALTORS® (PSAR), a 4,000-member real estate trade group for San Diego-area REALTORS®, recently noted the 10-year anniversary of its merger between two San Diego regional REALTOR® associations, including the El Cajon-based East San Diego County Association of REALTORS® (ESDCAR) and the Chula Vista-based PSAR.
In June 2012, officials with ESDCAR and PSAR signed Articles of Incorporation between the two REALTOR® associations. Then, in August 2012, the California Secretary of State approved the merger followed by approval from the National Association of REALTORS® in September 2012. The year 2023 will be the 11th full calendar year for the merged REALTOR® association.
“During our first successful decade, we’ve demonstrated over and over how we’re better and stronger together,” said Rich D’Ascoli, CEO of PSAR. “We’re looking forward to the future and continuing to fulfill PSAR’s mission to empower real estate professionals throughout San Diego County.”
