Who is NAR?

The National Association of REALTORS®, “The Voice for Real Estate,” is America’s largest trade association, representing 1 million members, including NAR’s institutes, societies and councils, involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.

As the leading advocate for private property rights, homeownership and housing, NAR’s issues are often closely aligned with those affecting consumers.

The real estate industry faces a number of challenges in the next few years; these challenges offer NAR and its REALTOR® members a unique opportunity to directly engage the public to build a consumer advocacy network around the issues that will impact home buyers, sellers and investors. Building a meaningful, long-term relationship with consumers is essential to support homeownership, real estate investment, and the very future of the real estate industry.
The issue isn’t whether someone chooses to rent or buy today; it’s whether they’ll be able to become homeowners in the future. REALTORS® believe anyone who is able and willing to assume the responsibilities of owning a home should have the opportunity to pursue that dream.
