Past President Advisor - Joe Evans, RE/MAX Town Center - Past 2015 President of GDRA, Current Board Member

I am honored to have been the 2015 President of the Greater Dublin Realtors Association. This is a vibrant and exciting group of Realtors and Affiliates many of whom I have known for years. I've served as Treasurer, Vice President and President of the Gahanna Realtors Association (twice) over the last few years. I've been a co-chair of BRAC with CBR and served on several committees.

Currently I am Past President of the New Albany Rotary Club (2013-2014) and am involved in other charitable organizations around the city. I believe that GDRA is not only a fine organization for Realtors and Affiliates, it is also an organization that does a lot of good for the local Dublin community, raising funds for the less fortunate and other worthy causes, truly sets this group apart from others. GDRA is also a FUN group with some of the best socials in our business. Great networking, socially responsible, great fun and an opportunity to make long and lasting friendships makes GDRA a group worth checking out.
