Galler says Jason Miller from Premier Real Estate in St. Cloud will also be installed as their 2022 President during the convention.

They have about 22,500 members across the state.

As for the hot housing market, Galler says it has slowed down from the spring but he says as long as interest rates remain low the housing market will stay strong into next year.
