NAR- Plug Your Ears All You Want- It Just Keeps Coming

nar chicagoThis past week I wrote about NAR and how fed up many Realtors are becoming: 
As technology advances it seems NAR and the Boards bicker over a way forward and I for one see no end in sight.  I think if something doesn’t change in the very near future we as an association, local and national may need to rethink our leadership.  I for one am here to tell you that you work for me, not the other way around.

Here is more food for serious thought over at J. Dalton’s in case you needed more evidence:


Enough is enough…

…I am not a REALTOR (r) by choice. I am a REALTOR because the local associations own the MLS. You – the NAR leaders – are the main reason why I likely would stop paying my dues if I had the option. Because you don’t represent me. Hell, you don’t even represent a fair slice of reality much of the time.

It’s not just NAR, it’s also the local boards and their Brokers that make up the local MLS in over 900 different regions.  You all should head what we’re saying and start talking to us, listening to us, and changing the status quo. Or I guess we could change it for you?  Because if we don’t change it, the consumer will.
