Letter from the President
Welcome to all as we head into Fall. I'm Todd Johnson, your newly elected President. I'm happily married to my wife, Kristina. We have two adult, married children and three grandchildren living in Florida and Hawaii. I've been a Rockford resident my entire life, but we also love our Salt Life in Marco Island, FL and our Forest/Boat Life in Edgerton, WI. My passion for flipping and rentals started 20 years ago when my father, Dale, brother, Jimmie, and I started D1J Investments. I joined the RAA many years ago to learn more about the business and to network. It's been a rewarding experience of learning and meeting new friends. I'm so grateful to you all for accepting me as your President. Thank you! I know I have big shoes to fill, and I look to you all for your interests, topics to cover, and for your energy and support. Our association success depends on your interest, participation and eagerness to volunteer and get involved.
It is with a heavy heart that I share the news that Larry Mills passed away on Sunday, August 15th 2021. His family was by his side. Larry was a valued member of our Board of Directors, and we will miss his kindness, his witty attitude, his dance skills, his determination, and his love of life. His family and close friends celebrated his life on Saturday, August 21st at Olsen Funeral Home on Main Street. It was a quiet time of reflection and remembrance. We will miss Larry at our meetings.
We had a great time at the Summer banquet; it was so great to laugh and chat with all of you as we prepared for our break. It was wonderful to actually get together and see each other after the dreaded lockdowns of 2020. We’re starting activities back up here in September with the visit and presentation by Winnebago County Associate Judge Balogh. He’ll talk us through the process of filing a residential eviction action. He’ll give us tips and pointers on how to be prepared to have a successful eviction with all of the new procedures and requirements post-COVID.

Additionally, Olga Ivari will join us. She is the Area Coordinator for an evictions court-annexed mediation program that will be starting soon.
CLICK HERE to read about court-annexed eviction mediation. She will be there to explain the program and answer your questions about how it is intended to work. Join us on September 21st for that—you don’t want to miss it as the eviction moratorium here in Illinois is set to expire on September 18th or perhaps when the CDC moratorium expires in October. Bring your questions and be prepared to take notes!
We’ll be meeting at our new location: 1161 Tebala Boulevard, Rockford, IL 61108. This is the new location for the Rockford Area Association of Realtors. It’s located in the Upper Iowa University of Rockford building. You won’t want to go to the old location, because it’s not there anymore. They tore the building down this year.
We will have vendors at the meeting, and we’re always looking for more vendor participation. Please get the word out to those vendors who do a great job for you—get them some more business opportunities.
Thanks for everyone’s support through their membership in the RAA!
Todd Johnson, RAA President
