As Realtors®, we are only as strong as our cumulative value of our brand. NAR’s efforts to boost professionalism not only strengthen NAR and help our 1.5 million members better navigate the market, but they’re tremendously valuable to home buyers and sellers, as well.
America is experiencing a roughly 6-million-unit housing shortage, pushing homeownership out of reach for too many families. U.S. consumers count on Realtors® to help ensure real estate remains available, accessible, and affordable for them. And we’re so proud of NAR members like Vonda Sellers Ford and Amy McCalman Kirby for solidifying the commitment to ensuring their clients and consumers everywhere can access their American dream of home and property ownership.
The National Association of Realtors® is America’s largest trade association, representing over 1.5 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.
