Sponsorship Opportunities

Open House – This is a unique opportunity for any interested sponsors: DCAR is planning a grand opening of its new DC office in early 2018! Details on the new office, including pictures of the progress, directions to get to the office, and parking information, can be found here. This is a fantastic sponsorship opportunity that won’t come around again — after all, this is the first property purchase in DCAR’s 105-year history. Don’t miss your chance to get your brand in front of DC real estate’s elite.

DCAR Installation – Each December, DCAR officially installs its volunteer leadership team for the upcoming year. The ceremony is a big event that is always well-attended and features some of the highest-ranking members of the Association. There are few better opportunities to get your brand in front of some the District’s most powerful REALTORS® than the annual DCAR Installation. Stay tuned for information on the 2018 Installation. Pictures of 2016 Installation here.

Speaker Series – DCAR hosts 6-10 Speaker Series events per year, many of which are available for sponsorships. Our speakers range from government leaders, such as DC Council Chair Phil Mendelson, to real estate experts who can offer insight into a wide variety of industry matters (pest control, radon, tax tips, etc.). Some of these events are filmed and trimmed into highlights, which we then distribute to our membership, further increasing the exposure. Check out pictures of Councilmember Jack Evans’ appearance in 2016 here.

Networking Events – Throughout the course of the year, DCAR hosts a variety of networking events. Some of the most popular of these events are our Happy Hours, which are held intermittently around the city. We hold an annual Happy Hour at Lebanese Taverna in Woodley Park in May during the REALTORS® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo (see pictures here), which draws REALTORS® and other industry professionals from all around the country. It’s a great opportunity to get your brand in front of a large, diverse audience, one that is not often reachable in DC.

Member Spotlight Videos – One of the new features we’re working on here at DCAR is a Member Spotlight video series, where we aim to help you get to know some of our members a little better. The videos, each several minutes in length, are lighthearted and cover a few different subjects, such as the member’s background, time in DC, introduction to real estate and various experiences. Our debut entry in this series is available here, and other entries will soon be added. Get in early to make sure you’re ahead of the curve!

 

Advertising Opportunities

Friday Roundup – Each Friday, DCAR sends a roundup of the week in DCAR and DC real estate. This includes DCAR updates, relevant legislation, some of the biggest real estate stories around DC, upcoming events and more. These emails go out to the entire membership of nearly 3,000 REALTORS®, and it’s an excellent way to make sure your brand is in front of the leaders in DC real estate.
