1. What was wrong with the old one?

2. I don't like the new one.

3. More wasting of my money that goes to them year after year.

4. Why would they get rid of the word Realtor under the R symbol... that's presuming everyone know what the R stand for and I wouldn't bet on that.

5. So long as there is no requirement that I use the logo on my marketing materials I virtually never use it (old or new logo).

The new ones look better (more depth which maybe is what they are trying for), but there is absolutely no reason to change them. Seems like a waste of money.

Actually, there is nothing wrong with the new logo. But like a lot of others, I think the old logo wasn't the problem. There are a lot of angry Realtors who have seen the organization sell us down the river. When you belong to an Association, you should be working to protect the interests of the members. I think NAR lost that focus years ago. I am hopeful (not optimistic) the new management will set things right. Maybe the logo is the start.

Hi Nathan Gesner! I hadn't seen the new logo and didn't know it was changing. I don't really get why it is. I just went through this with CRS too. Sometimes rebranding to me is meaningless and a waste of time and money. It looks fine, I kind of don't care, but I don't know why it was necessary. Seems like a waste of time and money to me.-K
