Glenn Shimkus

National Association of REALTORS®

As vice president of Strategy and Innovation for the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), Glenn Shimkus identifies and evaluates emerging technologies that may impact the global residential and commercial real estate markets in order to educate the association’s members and leaders about them.

Since Shimkus took on the new role in early 2019, NAR has held its second iOi Summit, began publishing content from its Emerging Technology team, and initiated strategic discussions with two large technology companies about a possible new member benefit, which has yet to be formally announced as of press time.
