Chairman of the Board
Houston Association of REALTORS®
Danny Frank assumed the position of 2013 Houston Association of REALTORS® (HAR) chairman of the board on January 1, 2013. Danny, a REALTOR® with Prudential Anderson Properties, is also a regional vice president for the Texas Association of REALTORS® and proudly serves as a board member of the National Association of REALTORS®.
Danny proclaimed "Maximizing the Value of the REALTOR® Experience" the theme for his year in office. It is part of his commitment to lead HAR in identifying new, effective and innovative ways to promote the real estate profession for Association members who work throughout the Houston market.
Danny was born October 12, 1961 in Austin. He grew up in Sunrise Beach, Texas on Lake LBJ. In April 1967, Danny and his family moved to Pearland, which he has called both his home and workplace ever since, with only a few brief stints away for school and family.
After working in the corporate world, Danny found himself with a real estate license in September 2004 and began working at the Keller Williams Pearland office with owner Judy Burno and her team. Danny quickly became a leader at the Keller Williams office, serving on the Agent Leadership Council and becoming a leader, mentor and teacher at all the Keller Williams Houston offices. In 2013, he joined Prudential Anderson Properties where he continues to serve the needs of real estate consumers throughout the Pearland/Friendswood market.
Danny has spent the last several years devoting his time and talents to helping HAR grow and better serve its members. In 2006, just two years after getting his license, Danny became involved with the Bay Area Advisory group, and in 2008 became the chairman of that group. That is where he really started to focus his attention on HAR. He soon began participating as a member of HAR's Governmental Affairs Advisory Group and became heavily involved with the technology side of HAR - serving two terms as the chairman of the Technology Advisory Group. In that role, Danny worked very closely with HAR Chief Technology Officer Taqi Rizvi in developing and implementing many tools and features on HAR.com that have benefited HAR members and real estate consumers alike. That includes the acclaimed apps that have opened up a world of mobile, high-tech convenience in local real estate.
Danny ran for a seat on the HAR Board of Directors in 2008 and was elected by the membership. The following year, he was elected to the Secretary/Treasurer position, and he continued to rise through the ranks. In 2010, Danny was elected to the Vice Chair 2 position and in 2011 was elected as Vice Chair 1. He served as chairman-elect throughout 2012.
HAR is honored to call Danny Frank its 2013 chairman of the board.
