Conway Regional VP Peter Ruffini and Canton agent Bob Humphrys were recently installed in the leadership of the Massachusetts Association of Realtors (MAR) at a ceremony held at the Salem Waterfront Hotel and Marina.
Ruffini was installed for a second term as secretary/treasurer and Humprhys was named a director of the organization.
“It’s an honor for me to serve as a MAR director,” said Humphrys, whose 2-year term on the State Board will begin on Jan.1. “This organization represents 22,000 Massachusetts Realtors and it stands for ethics and integrity in our profession. I’m very proud to be a part of it.”
Conway CEO Carol Bulman, who attended the installation ceremony, was pleased to see Humphrys and Ruffini honored. “We encourage all of our agents to become active members of our state associations and many of them play leadership roles,” said Bulman, whose father Jack Conway is a former MAR President. “Peter and Bob are a credit to our sales team and to our company.”
Humphrys, an 18-year Conway associate, holds a number of advanced real estate credentials. He is a graduate of the National Realtor’s Institute and is a certified senior specialist, residential specialist, and international property specialist. “I believe it’s important to keep abreast of new laws and changes in our industry,” said Humphrys. “Education and training are the keys to doing that.”
A Stoughton resident, Humphrys is a member and past president of the Greater Boston Real Estate Board, a former Commander of the American Legion post in Canton, a member of the Milton Yacht Club and a member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts. He has two grown sons and two grandchildren.

Living most of his life in Plymouth, Ruffini formerly served on the board of directors for the Plymouth Boys and Girls Club and he currently coaches youth sports. He and his wife Jaime live in Carver with their four children.
