[VIP] What NAR Can Do, But Likely Won’t

Happy Monday, everybody.

A couple of you have asked for this topic in the Notorious VIP Network (all of you have been invited, so check your inbox if you don't know what the Network is), so I figure I'll kick off this week of writing-while-at-home with some free advice (worth exactly what NAR paid for it) that is likely to be ignored, if not pooh-pooh'ed into the ground.

Keep in mind that I am a huge, giant fan of the REALTOR Movement, as anyone who has been reading this blog for a while should know. For example, this post from 2017 where I point out that the origins of the REALTOR Movement was the shift from "let the public be damned to let the public be served.” I love the Preamble to the Code of Ethics, as it lays out the high ideals of the REALTOR Movement:
I love these words. Who could not? They ring of concern for not just the buyer and seller, but for the public, for the interests of the nation and its citizens. They talk about grave social responsibility and a patriotic duty. The REALTOR Movement, at its heart, is a patriotic, public-minded, socially responsible movement. They are every bit as inspiring to those of us who work in the real estate industry as the Declaration of Independence is to the American people.

So my advice, for what it's worth, will be heavily tinged by that admiration for and love of the men and women who have internalized the ideals of the REALTOR Movement.

Let's get into it.
