I just reviewed the NAR Slide show that is to accompany the online Town Hall today. I'd have to say I am not excited. I do not think from what I saw that NAR knows what it is. It looks as if it is trying to be all things to all people (REALTORS® and consumers). I want NAR to support me, a real estate practitioner, on the national level. I want Arizona Association of REALTORS® to support me on the state level as those issues are different. I want NAR to decide whether it is a champion of homeownership, or whether they are doing all that is necessary for me to be successful in my business. I'd like to know what part of their political budget is spent on lobbying, advertising and consulting with state organizations on political strategy? All I saw in that slide show was disorganization and lots of "fluff" to get me to agree to a dues increase. I'm far from convinced - and it's not the $40; it's that it's more money poorly spent.
