NAR reveals national property database details

'Library/Archive' is latest name for 'Gateway' plan

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Leadership for the National Association of Realtors is "very committed" to a plan to create a massive national — and possibly international — property database to serve as a resource for agents and brokers, the leader of the group spearheading the plan announced Thursday.

Gary Thomas, a Southern California RE/MAX broker who has led the advisory group, said during a Thursday session at the National Association of Realtors’ annual midyear conference that there are plans to form an advisory board and launch a pilot project for the database.
