NAR directors surprised to learn Upstream not just for Realtors

Board members say they would not have funded tech tool had they known it would be open to all brokers
  • Three NAR directors say they voted to fund Upstream in May 2015 believing the platform would be only for Realtors.
  • Both Upstream and NAR say the platform will be for all brokers regardless of Realtor status.

Who should Upstream be for? That’s the question at the heart of a discrepancy Inman has uncovered between the people paying to fund the ambitious (yet thoroughly delayed) online real estate data platform and the project’s leaders.
