NAR - SPEAK OUT Against iBuyers -
Support REALTORS That Support You



For many years, Lyn Sims from Chicago/Schaumberg IL, has reminded us that the National Association of REALTORs (NAR) lives off the donations of its members and asks about thier effectiveness as she questions NAR's value to us as real estate professionals.

Sharing the focus of the video - when will NAR address the elephant in the middle of the living room - the ever-encroaching internet mega-companies - and expose their litany of hidden fees. Our professional organization needs to educate the public.

Other issues with Zillow for me:

Over the past three days, I have spoken with three possible new Clients.  In all three instances, I've had to REFUTE Zillow statistics before I can even start looking at values with Buyers. The public doesn't look at the background in each locale.

  • Shall we say "Zestimates" carry a large mathematical MARGIN OF ERROR?
  • Shall we remind the public that these mega companies have hidden fees???
  • Shall we explain that bad-mouthing REALTORs on the ground while seeking Customers online is not a professional behavior?

All the best - Lynn

Hats off to Lyn Sims for sending out the video.
Thanks for use of elephant photo to MinistryMatters.

Hello Lynn - is the elephant too big?  That may be the "answer".
