Some words from our newly-elected officers:

Tammy Newland-Shishido, 2017 President-Elect

b2ap3_thumbnail_TammyNewland-Shishido_200x300.jpg My personal mission statement is to live a balanced life with a passion for service and developing leaders.  This is why I am a servant leader in my community, industry and at the Association.   The rest of my mission statement is, to be willing to risk for great abundance and excellence.  When you make changes you risk, but change is necessary for growth.  I believe we have the best Association, with the focus being on members and benefits for our members.  We listen to you and have made changes at our Association that our members have asked for.  I look forward to following in the footsteps of our Association leaders and continuing to move our strategic plan forward.  We have a lot of talent on our board of directors and I look forward to serving with our directors and being of service to our members.


Adam Rodell, 2017 Treasurer

b2ap3_thumbnail_RodellAdam.jpg I am truly honored and privileged to be able to continue serving the Members of the Orange County Association of REALTORS®.  As your Treasurer, I will continue to guide our Association in the most fiscally conservative manner possible, while always being willing to seek out our Members' voices for future growth potential.
