barbara (1) WEBPAGE2019 WVAR President

Barbara Belcher is very proud to be a part of the real estate profession in West Virginia and Virginia.

I have a business degree from Bluefield State College that I received going at night, started in 1989 and graduated in 2000.

I have been a state director of the West Virginia Association of REALTORS© since 1998 (with a leave in 2008). I have served on all of the committees and have been honored to chair the Education Committee twice; the last time in 2014. I strongly believe that education is a large part of a successful real estate agent.  I am a member of the Mercer-Tazewell County Board of REALTORS© and have served as President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary and chairperson of several committees.

I am so excited to begin this new position with WVAR and hope to fulfill the obligations as  President 2019 to the members of the West Virginia Association of REALTORS©

I raised my younger sister (16 yrs. apart) after our parents passed and the “man” in my life now is my five year old nephew, Uriah, he calls me “Nana”!!  My sister, Mary, passed in March of this year with a hard fought battle with cancer but she was my biggest supporter when it came to being part of the West Virginia Association of REALTORS©.

We find it hard sometimes to have family gatherings because of everyone’s obligations and schedules but we always make the best of the time we do share. I thank my family for their love and support.


2019 WVAR President Elect

The future is bright for WVAR and it’s members, 2019 should be a dynamic year and I look forward to playing my small part. I have served as the President of the Huntington Board of Realtors on two occasions, over fifteen years as a Director and currently serve as Chair of the MLS Committee. I’ve been a member of the WVAR Board of Directors since 2010, as Chairman and Vice Chairman of the at times eventful, Government Affairs Committee. These roles, in part, have prepared me to take the next step in leadership with WVAR. I am excited to have the opportunity to continue to serve the WVAR members in the capacity of President-Elect, 2019.

I began my career in the Real Estate industry in 1999 and became the Broker / Owner of Great American Realty in Huntington, WV in 2002. I obtained and maintain my Real Estate Brokers license in WV, OH and KY and actively work in the field everyday showing and listing property in addition to my responsibilities as a Broker. I have closed over two hundred fifty million dollars ($250,000,000) in personal transactions during my career (a minuscule amount compared to some Realtors) and I can tell you that I remember the easy ones and the tough ones; the big ones and the small ones. They all matter and are important, what we do is important. The aforementioned and one dollar will get you a cup of coffee at McDonalds. In other words, we all understand that this is a; what have you done for me lately, business. To be successful, we must continue to produce. We have all heard the old saying, those that can, do, those that can’t teach and lead. I don’t fully believe that. I feel that my experience on the front line of the Real Estate industry has prepared me to lead, others draw their leadership qualities from different life experiences

My wife of thirty two (32) years, Brenda, and our family have lived the real estate business together. With the purchase and development of our personal Real Estate portfolio, the late night showing and listing appointments and the sometimes untimely phone calls. My daughter Jordan and son Clayton and their spouses along with our five (5) grandchildren have or will be touched by my chosen profession over the years. We help our family and our clients reach their real estate goals; finding their first or final home, helping them build their investment portfolios, settling an estate, etc….. What we do, matters to many. I look forward to serving you, the WVAR members and working with you to improve our organization in all ways that I can.
