Dan Dixon - RE/MAX Associates (Utah County)

When I was in 4th grade, my Mom asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I responded that I wanted to be an FBI agent or a real estate agent. I think my 9-year-old brain thought if the job title had the word “agent” in it that I could carry a gun - which by the way my Principal Broker, Matt Barton, reminds me all the time that I can carry. My Mom, surprised by the real estate agent comment since we had never moved during my lifetime, nor did we know any REALTORS®, asked me why real estate? I said that helping people find their first home sounded fun. Turns out, it really is fun. I’ve now been in the real estate industry for over 20 years. I’ve been a lender, an appraiser, and now, for the past 12 years, I’m living that 9-year-old’s dream as a REALTOR® helping people buy and sell homes and it’s as great as I thought it was going to be.
 
I love all aspects of real estate and have been fortunate enough to be involved in various activities, including working with first time home buyers, buying and selling multifamily apartments buildings, representing builders as they build wonderful communities, and representing commercial clients as they build businesses to benefit the public. The experiences as appraiser, lender and REALTOR® have given me a well-rounded knowledge and approach to the various situations we encounter as REALTORS®.
 
I was surprised to be nominated for a Board of Directors position, it's not something I sought out. But after thinking about what it entails and tapping into the dreamy ideals of my 9-year-old self, I see this as an extension of that initial simple desire, a desire to serve. I believe that it’s our duty to serve our community. We have the ability to impact the wise growth of our communities and help all to benefit. So, when I was asked to run for the Board, I accepted. I'm a critical, outside the box thinker. Those who know me, know I'm always game for a healthy debate. I really think it is a vital process to arrive at good decisions. But at the end of the day, I prefer to advance a cause rather than just get my way. These are the goals for serving: critical thinking on important issues, a healthy debate process, and then unity in execution on decisions made.
 
I’m married to my amazing partner, Holly. She’s a social worker and the only shot I have to get to heaven. Lucky to be a father to 3 super kids, who love sports, animals, movies, books and being outdoors. Im an avid sports fan and slightly above average golfer.
 
If elected, I promise to serve diligently, to be present and attentive at meetings, to advance the cause of real estate in all its forms and to represent the REALTORS® of the Utah Central Association of REALTORS®.



Carolyn Hardman - Equity Real Estate (Results)

Carolyn Hardman labels herself as a cheerleader. Her intention as she cheers people on is to astonish those she works with the highest level of communication, customer service and expert knowledge in real estate.
 
She has been cheering for clients and REALTORS® for almost a decade at Equity Real Estate (Results) in American Fork where she serves as the lead mentor for new agents. A top producing agent in her brokerage and part of UCAR's top 250 for 2021, Carolyn works hard in the arena with her peers. All four of her boys have heard their mom cheer, "Stand Up, Be Proud, Shout Your Name Out loud" throughout their lives. She and her husband also cheer on their many renters of their 14-unit apartment complex as they move from tenants to homeowners.
 

Carolyn serves on the Board of Directors for Interweave Solutions, a Utah 501c3, whose mission is to move people from poverty to prosperity through self-reliance groups in developing countries. Whether she is helping people build their businesses through real estate in Utah or through self-reliance trainings across the globe, or guiding clients through the joy of home ownership- she is there cheering, 'L-E-T-S- G-O, Let's Go! Let's Go!



Aaron McIntire - Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Momentum

It is an honor to receive a nomination for a position on the Board of Director, and to be considered among my peers, whom I greatly respect.
 
We are part of an industry that is changing constantly and the value we provide has never been greater. We must continue to fight to preserve our industry. I do not have political aspirations; however, I was raised to serve God and my fellow men and women. With this opportunity I believe I can do both by making a difference and being passionate about preserving and protecting the rights we have as REALTORS®.
 
For the past 21 years this profession has given me the opportunity to provide a great life for me and my family. Over the years I have had many opportunities to serve in the community and in our local and state boards as a committee member, board member, RPAC trustee and other positions. I am thankful for those experiences and the amazing people I have served with and the friends I have made. I am excited for what lies ahead.
 
My wife Candice, and I, have 6 children and live in Lindon. We love spending time together; traveling, boating, skiing and being outdoors.
