Seattle King County REALTORS® has elected Dahni Malgarini-Logar and Michael Orbino to serve on the National Association of REALTORS® Board of Directors for two-year terms. These two Directors take office on December 1, 2020 and will represent members of Seattle King County REALTORS® at the semi-annual meetings of NAR.
