Remember dumping a puzzle box on the floor as a kid, only to have hundreds, if not thousands, of pieces to sort through, and finding the correct pieces that fit together? Each piece of that puzzle had an important role: They unite together to create the bigger picture. That is what the REALTORS® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo is all about: NAR’s members uniting in a community of REALTORS® to take an active role in advancing the real estate industry.

Like you, NAR is one piece of this important puzzle and we’re doing our part to advocate for the industry on behalf of you, our members, while providing you with exclusive member benefits, educational opportunities, programs and consumer-facing resources. While you’re at the Trade Expo, be sure to stop by the REALTOR® Pavilion on Wednesday, May 13 and Thursday, May 14 to learn about the resources your NAR membership provides.

The Different Pieces of NAR
The REALTOR® Pavilion brings together numerous benefits of membership, making it easy for you and your agents to access those benefits that best support your business. At the heart of the REALTOR® Pavilion is the NAR Booth No. 1707. Here, you can learn about a variety of NAR initiatives and resources the organization provides our members.

  • Claim your FREE .REALTOR Web address and learn how to incorporate it into your business.
  • As part of the REALTOR® Party, help advocate for local, state and federal issues that impact your business, and record a video about how you Vote, Act & Invest in your community.
  • Demo the NEW and improved online REALTOR® Store, and purchase any product to receive a free webinar download through the Member Value Plus (MVP) program.
  • Meet NAR’s 2015 Leadership Team on Wednesday from 5:00 – 5:30 p.m.
  • Save time and money, grow your business, and gain a competitive edge with the REALTOR Benefits® Program.
  • Shop REALTOR®-branded merchandise in the REALTOR Team Store®, including new styles.
  • Learn how you can connect to commercial real estate research, listing and data tools, advocacy efforts and more with NAR Commercial; see how NAR’s Information Central provides REALTORS® with industry/association research guidance to help you succeed; hear how volunteer leaders and NAR staff are working together to run an association smoothly through NAR’s Volunteer Leadership Training.

There’s a lot to see and discover at the NAR Booth No. 1707!

Tools to Take Your Business to the Next Level
Also within the REALTOR® Pavilion is Realtors Property Resource® (RPR®) in Booth No. 1708. RPR® is NAR’s national database covering all of the nearly 150 million parcels of property across the U.S., exclusively available at no additional charge to REALTORS®. In Booth No. 1706, apply for the new REALTOR® Credit Card from REALTORS® Federal Credit Union, a division of Northwest Federal Credit Union. You can also learn about the full range of financial products and services designed especially for REALTORS®.

As you know, knowledge is power. Visit REALTOR® University Booth No. 1813 to learn about the many certifications and designations offered to REALTORS® to help you gain specialized knowledge on topics from Resort & Second-Home properties and Seniors to Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) to Short Sales & Foreclosures. And remember to ask about the Master’s Degree in Real Estate, a true master’s program that allows you to focus your passion and take your professional specialty to the highest level.

NAR’s Global initiatives are at Booth No. 1822. If you work with international clients, be sure to ask about the Certified International Property Specialist Designation (CIPS).

Consumer Resources You Can Use
NAR has resources that are a great way to market your value as a REALTOR® to your clients and other consumers. Visit REALTOR® Content Resource, powered by HouseLogic, at Booth No. 1809 to access free homeownership content you can utilize in your marketing and online! There are also homeownership advocacy materials available from the Consumer Awareness Campaign that you can seamlessly integrate into your 2015 marketing efforts. Looking to update your website with new resources? Then be sure to visit Booth No. 1805 to learn about the Real Estate Today Radio Show and find out how you can easily add the audio player to your website. It’s another great marketing resource to communicate real estate information and your knowledge with clients.

You are an important piece of the REALTOR® community. Connect with NAR and the resources you need for your business at REALTOR® Pavilion.
