Finding yourself in NAR's Database - Could it be any more difficult?

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Alliance

While I understand that most buyers visit REALTOR.COM to search for properties, I find it quite odd that an organization that's here to supoort US actually makes it quite difficult for clients to "FIND A REALTOR" to work with in their locale.

Click NAR's link: http://www.realtor.com/findreal/ and try to find yourself.  It's not very easy because they have "Realtor Yellow Pages" (the default), "Office Yellow Pages" & "Agent White Pages".  For many of us, we'd better hope (and pray) that someone clicks the right tab, knows our office locale and/or spells your first/last name correctly or consumers will NOT find you.  I looked myself up in the "Realtor Yellow Pages" by first/last name, office name and could not be located.  I've only been a member for FIVE years - D'oh!

Fellow Realtors, look yourself up and please tell me what I'm missing.  If I need to purchase a "yellow page ad w/ NAR" - then so be it, but I can't even find info for that.  I'm a proud NAR member, so this isn't so much a complaint as much as it is a request to help us out a little.  "Right Tools - Right Now" is a great tagline for 2010, but the ability to be found easily in NAR's member database by consumers would be a "Good Tool - Today".   :)
