Following the Association’s Annual General Meeting on March 2, Artenosi has assumed the role of president of OREA, representing Ontario’s 96,000 realtors on the 2023 OREA Board of Directors.

Expressing her enthusiasm for her new position, Artenosi stated, “Standing up for our members and bringing affordability closer to home for Ontarians across the province will be my north star as OREA’s President in 2023. I’m honoured to be taking on this important leadership role…as we work to bring the real estate profession to the next level.”
In addition, Oakville-based broker Rick Kedzior was elected the 2023 president-elect and will serve as director-at-large for the upcoming year.
Kedzior expressed his dedication to continuing OREA’s mission to help young Ontarians and their families find great places to live, work, and thrive, creating vibrant communities across the province. He also emphasized keeping members top-of-mind while navigating today’s dynamic real estate market.
