Richard Haggerty has been appointed CEO of the newly formed Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors (HGAR), now the 11th largest Realtor association in the nation.
HGAR is a result of the merger between the Westchester Putnam Association of Realtors (WPAR), the Rockland County Board of Realtors (RCBR) and Orange County Association of Realtors (OCAR).
Prior to becoming CEO, Haggerty served as director of member services and subsequently as deputy executive officer for WPAR. He was also the professional standards administrator for WPAR for 27 years and coordinated more than 550 arbitrations, ethics hearings and mediations during his tenure.
An active member of the local community, Haggerty is a former chair and current board member for Community Capital Resources , a non-profit agency that provides funding for affordable housing projects, as well as small business loans throughout the Hudson Valley region.
HGAR is a non-profit trade association covering more than 9,000 real estate professionals doing business in Westchester, Putnam, Rockland and Orange counties.
