Brad W. Andersen, 2020-2021 Board, President-Elect
Christopher Stephens, 2019-2020 Board President
Jeff Lasky, Chief Executive Officer
Backed by more than 100 years of service as well as the drive and determination to serve its members with excellence, the North Shore-Barrington Association of REALTORS® has undergone many organizational changes this year, including bringing on Jeff Lasky as its CEO. Lasky joined the organization just a few days before the COVID-19 pandemic transformed how the industry, and our country at large, operated. “I’m very proud of how we transitioned staff activity from our physical offices to home just three days after I started,” Lasky says. “We have not missed a beat in continuing to provide unrivaled service excellence to our members.”
Another upcoming development involves the changing of the guard on the organization’s board. The term of NSBAR’s 2019-2020 Board President Christopher Stephens will be ending in September, at which time Brad W. Andersen will take the helm as the board’s 2020-2021 president.
Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty Designated Managing Broker Stephens, who manages the firm’s Winnetka, Evanston and Barrington offices, witnessed many organizational successes during his term and was instrumental in rolling out a number of new initiatives at NSBAR. “Being board president during the NSBAR Centennial Celebration & Installation and the hiring of a new CEO, and while helping our members navigate through this recent pandemic were all extremely rewarding,” Stephens says.
Owner and Designated Managing Broker of Griffith, Grant & Lackie Realtors Andersen has been in the real estate industry for nearly three decades. Passionate about community service, he volunteers at numerous organizations and is eager to take on his new role at the organization. “I feel very fortunate to have been asked to serve as NSBAR’s next president,” he says.
Founded in 1919, NSBAR has empowered real estate professionals in the North Shore and Barrington marketplaces with the personal attention, technology, support, education and insights they need to succeed at every stage of their career.
