District 13 Director
First licensed in 1981 and a Realtor® for about 23 years, Reggie Fluker, MBA, has been a broker since 1988. He is presently the managing Associate Broker of Aaron Associates Incorporated/Amazing! Real Estate Solutions in Detroit. As an adjunct instructor, Reggie also provides salesperson and broker pre-licensing instruction and continuing education for Michigan Institute of Real Estate in Southfield. For several years, Reggie has co-chaired the Government Affairs Committee of Greater Metropolitan Association of Realtors® (GMAR); which has allowed him to participate in GMAR’s and Michigan Realtors® political and government relations efforts. Fluker is serving the second year of his first term as a Michigan Realtor® Director.
Professionally, Fluker’s licensed real estate career evolved somewhat differently than the norm, which has allowed him to develop rather unique skills and expertise. As a newly licensed salesperson, Reggie’s first seven years were spent as a real estate legal assistant for an attorney/broker. Later, as an independent broker, he was recruited by senior management of a major bank to originate mortgage loans in an effort to resolve the bank’s Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) deficiencies. Even later he was retained by a national commercial mortgage loan servicer to perform annual collateral inspections of buildings up to 200,000 sq ft., performed HUD-HQS/REAC inspections for large housing developments, and performed FEMA inspections in devastated out-state areas.
Another major assignment was a mayoral appointment with the Detroit Housing Commission, during which time Reggie was principally responsible for the operational turnaround of several high-rise apartment buildings, administered the agency’s homeownership programs, and managed a $194 million HUD HOPE VI community revitalization project, that included infrastructure renovations, new building constructions, and major rehabilitation of existing buildings on a 43 acre site.
Academically, Reggie holds a Bachelor degree in corporate finance, an MBA degree in taxation/accounting, and a Certificate in Economic Development, all from Wayne State University. Fluker also holds the following Realtor® designations/certifications: ABR, SFR, SRES, BPOR.
