Breaking News: I just have been installed as the new CEO of NAR. In case you are not familiar that is the National Association of Realtor and do not worry not NRA in other words, not the National Rifle Association.

Now, if you are still reading this post, just to be clear, it was inspired by my friend  Debe Maxwell, CRS      for an Active Rain Challenge. The request was:  what would I do if I was the CEO of NAR?

Well my answer is simple: the long-term goal would be to change the organization at the leadership level, not just preach, but also practice the principals of Higher Ethics. Just as the membership is required to practice so will the leadership be required to practice the principals of Higher Ethics. This Airborne Ranger Infantry CPT and twenty plus year member of NAR would on the short term: clean house and start fresh.

Anyone in a Leadership position, who would be on my team, would have had to have business and or military leadership experience, preferable both. Those who have had neither, sorry they would not be on my team. I would require strong people who are not afraid to express their views, even if it would disagree with mine, provided they would be able to accept the fact, that as the CEO I would have the final decision, since the CEO has to be accountable to the membership.

I would request the membership to submit what points are important and what needs to be saved and what needs to be discarded from the current way of doing business!

Every person in  a leadership position would have had to read Dr. Deming’s book Titled: What every U.S. Business-Person should know about successful management and bringing quality back home!

In case, you are not familiar with Dr Deming, let me just share with you that his management philosophies became the driving force behind the Japan’s economic Miracle in the late 1970’s and still hold true to the present. Not only have his philosophies stood the test of time, but they still function and remain successful.

If you are doubting about my proposed drastic changes, i.e.: questioning if this works? Let me quote from Dr. Deming about Real Improvements, when all attempts at improvements backfired, you have to wonder if there is any way we can improve the results?

“…The answer is, yes, there is, but not by constant adjustments…. only changes of the system, not adjustments of the existing system can lessen variation and volatility…. “

Endre, you could change the world as we currently know it for a much more positive, sweet, animal-friendly world. But, the "current world" isn't ready for you. Some of us are, though, and that's a good start!!!!

Endre Barath, Jr. ... I would love to see you change things. I for one have had to do it from the inside, I've made friends with everyone in the system and did massive corrections that have improved the quality. 

BUT one thing I can't change yet, public disclosure of all agents and firm who get a fine or hand slap. it's a rule that it's a local association choice, I would rather see it the other way around. we all should have to do it. Public to everyone.

Endre, I support your agenda for NAR, thus, support your candidacy for President.

I would love to see some major adjustment to NAR's budgetary accountability.

The logo fiasco was a wasted expenditure of $250,000 that seemed to have no one overseeing such waste.

Best wishes as you sweep the house clean.

Thanks Endre for your post here and reminding us that we as members at Realtor.org must be involved enough and remind leadership that they probably need to change the system (not only adjusting the system).

I have been concerned this past year that Realtor.org got vigorously involved in politics by withdrawing support from and attacking some of our pro-business representatives who favored the U.S. income tax law changes.

Great ideas.  Focus on the business aspect of what can make NAR successful.  Yet another great post about being Chair of NAR.  Having a great time reading and comparing notes.  In the end, I may not write anything because I've run out of ideas!  Great post as always!

What a let down, it's fake news.

However, if it were true, please start by not just publishing names of people that continue to get caught violating our Code of Ethics, just terminate their affiliation on their third stike.  I would be OK with probation on the first and terminate on the second, but know that would be harder to pass.

Can you explain why NAR has over 700 board of directors?  According to the Corporate Library's study, the average board size is 9.2 members, and most boards range from 3 to 31 members.Mar 14, 2018
