Patrick Burgan, second generation co-owner and Broker of Burgan Real Estate, will be sworn in on Saturday, January 18th as the 95th  President of the Youngstown Columbiana Association of REALTORS® for 2020.  Burgan not only follows his father’s footsteps, John Burgan, who held the office in 1981, but also becomes the youngest REALTOR® to hold this office at just 33 years of age.  He will hold this office for a 1-year term and ceremonies swearing him into office will be held at the Saxon Club (710 S. Meridian Rd., Youngstown, OH), the same location his father was sworn into office 29 years ago. 


“It is an honor to be elected to represent the Realtors® and serving the community as the President of YCAR in 2020,” said Patrick Burgan.  “I am looking forward to the opportunity of having a positive impact on increasing professionalism in our industry, protecting the property rights of homeowners in our area and ensuring that everyone in our area has an equal opportunity to achieve the greatest asset of living the ‘American Dream;” owning their own home.”


Since taking over full ownership in 2017 of Burgan Real Estate with Sue Filipovich, who served as President of YCAR in 2016, Burgan Real Estate has become the fastest growing real estate brand in the Mahoning Valley, growing the company from $52 Million in home sales in 2017 to over $100 Million in sales during 2019.  Under his guidance, Burgan Real Estate has made a commitment in making life, “Better with Burgan,” through a relentless approach to growing agents, fulfilling client needs in the home buying and selling process and supporting the community in everything they do as a locally owned and operated business for 43 years.  Burgan exemplifies his commitment to a better community in various ways including, serving as a Trustee of the YSU Foundation Penguin Club, a member of Boardman Rotary and, most recently, the creator of a $2,400 grant for entrepreneurial students at Youngstown State University called, “The John Burgan Entrepreneur Award.” 


Each year, the incoming President of YCAR chooses an organization, which will benefit from all funds raised by the association throughout the year.  For his administration, Patrick has chosen all funds be donated to Northeast Ohio Adoption Services (NOAS), an organization, which he also sits on as a Board Member.


 “The Youngstown Columbiana Association of Realtors® is excited to have Patrick step into the office of President this year,” said Julie Larson, CEO of YCAR.  “John Burgan, his father, has been very involved with the association over the years and has created a legacy that Patrick is joining as one of the Burgan men serving as President of YCAR. We look forward to all he will accomplish this year, including the support and contributions we will be making to the Northeast Ohio Adoption Services this year.”
