Recently, the managing broker at my employing agency made the decision not to join the local Realtor association board. When this happened, my Realtor status changed from member to non-member quicker than you can recite the date of your next closing.
- The tangible benefits of being a Realtor have faded over time.
- The general public continues to think that all real estate agents and brokers are Realtors.
- The younger demographic of agents and brokers do not see the value -- or need -- to join their local NAR boards.
