Strategic Planning


Maryland Realtors, a leading association representing real estate professionals across the state, sought to revitalize its strategic planning process to adapt to the evolving needs of its members and the real estate industry. With a vision for enhancing member services, advocating for industry interests, and fostering professional development, Maryland Realtors aimed to develop a comprehensive strategic plan to guide its activities and initiatives for the next five years.


Facing rapid changes in technology, market dynamics, and regulatory environments, Maryland Realtors recognized the importance of strategic foresight to remain agile and responsive to emerging trends. The organization needed to engage stakeholders effectively, identify strategic priorities, and formulate actionable strategies to achieve its long-term goals while staying true to its mission of serving and supporting real estate professionals across Maryland.


A thorough analysis of the organization’s internal and external environments was conducted, including member feedback, industry trends, competitor assessments, and regulatory landscapes. Through surveys, interviews, and workshops, they engaged key stakeholders to gather insights and perspectives on the organization’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats.

Using this data-driven approach, the team facilitated strategic planning sessions with Maryland Realtors’ leadership team and planning committee. Together, they defined the organization’s vision, mission, and values, and established clear strategic goals and objectives aligned with the needs and aspirations of its members.


The strategic planning process empowered Maryland Realtors to chart a clear path forward and position itself for sustained success in a dynamic real estate landscape. By aligning its activities with the needs and priorities of its members, the organization strengthened its value proposition and enhanced member engagement and satisfaction.
