100 Days to Greatness – new NAR benefit

100 Days to Greatness – new NAR benefit

Lead REALTORS® to the Road to Greatness

 

For years, NAR heard from countless broker-owners that agents enter the business with excitement, which soon fizzles out due to the difficulties in managing complex day-to-day business operations.

Understanding this need to prevent new agent churn, Buffini & Company and NAR joined forces to provide a strong path of success for REALTORS®, especially those new to the field. 100 Days to Greatness®, unveiled at the 2020 REALTORS Conference & Expo, is a comprehensive, step-by-step training program designed for those looking to launch (or relaunch) their careers. The course will guide your members through proven strategies and tactics to build a productive and profitable business.

Who’s it designed for? The program is aimed at newer agents looking for a firm foundation, and those returning to the business after a hiatus. It’s also perfect for seasoned agents who are ready to take their business to the next level.

What will they learn?

·         Learn how to work by referral

·         Build a vibrant database

·         Use best practices to create clients for life

·         Gain the skills to close sales

·         Learn how to handle their commissions

·         Turn online leads into closed deals

What’s in it for brokers? This Program was designed to help brokers maximize retention efforts by ensuring new agents are well-trained from Day 1. Brokers who like to take a more hands-on approach have an option to lead their agents through the Program in a mentor/facilitator capacity.

Plus, NAR members who are new to Buffini & Company save $100 through the REALTOR Benefits® Program! 

Help your agents find success!

The REALTOR Benefits® Program features a wide range of savings and special offers just for REALTORS® from 30+ industry leaders including Dell, DocuSign, FedEx Office, and Liberty Mutual to name a few. Plus, discover personal insurance options from the REALTORS® Insurance Place, offering a full array of health and wellness solutions.

The Wyoming Realtors® updated the Wyoming Real Estate forms in 2020.  You can use the forms as you always have in either Zipforms or Form Simplicity.  Form Simplicity was able to update their platform to help make the forms more user-friendly.  For examples – if you choose cash in the financing section – then then lending info will drop away – no need to strike through that info.  This is just one example…. there are lots of other great things about the new form simplicity platform.

Fair Housing – two very informative videos to learn what is going on right now in our industry. Be informed!

REALTORS® are charged with upholding fair housing laws as well as offering professional service to all in their search for real property.

Watch this online workshop to help members avoid implicit bias in their daily business interactions. Drawing upon the latest evidence-based research, Perception explains how our brains’ automatic, instant association of stereotypes with particular groups can cause us to treat those who are different from us unfairly, despite our best intentions and often without our conscious awareness. Perception then applies these concepts to the everyday work of REALTORS®, and offers strategies to override bias in order to convey respect, ensure fairness, and improve business relationships.

Another interesting video investigation is the Newsday video – https://projects.newsday.com/long-island/real-estate-investigation-videos/  

Newsday’s paired testers visit real estate agents across Long Island to see if they will be treated the same.

NAR Board of Directors Approves New Personal Conduct Policy Addressing Discrimination

Changes to combat hate speech will ensure Realtor® Code of Ethics extends beyond real estate-related activities

CHICAGO (November 13, 2020) – The Board of Directors for the National Association of Realtors® today voted in favor of a motion presented by NAR’s Professional Standards Committee making it a violation for Realtors® to use harassing or hate speech toward any of the protected classes under Article 10 of NAR’s Code of Ethics. Those include race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, national origin, sexual orientation and gender identity. The Professional Standards Committee recommendations come as NAR works to reaffirm its commitment to fair housing and position its members to lead America’s real estate industry in the fight against discrimination and inequality.

Local, state and national Realtor® associations received various complaints about discriminatory speech posted online by Realtors® earlier this year, particularly on social media. In subsequent months, NAR’s Professional Standards Committee and Interpretations Procedures Advisory Board met to consider the Code of Ethics’ applicability to discriminatory speech and conduct beyond a Realtor®’s real estate duties.

Following months of meetings and deliberations, NAR’s Advisory Board recommended that its Code of Ethics apply to every action a Realtor® takes, whether personal or professional.

Any complaint alleging a violation of Article 10 as illustrated by Standard of Practice 10-5 can now be brought to a hearing panel at a local Realtor® association, which will be asked to assess the circumstances of each individual case. Overall, although the proposal seeks to extend enforcement of the Code beyond its current limits of real estate transactions and real estate-related activities, this added reach will not increase a Realtor® or Realtor®-Principal’s liability under the law.

Moving forward, NAR’s Professional Standards Committee will continue working to develop case interpretations to assist members and professional standards enforcement volunteers in understanding the Code’s applicability.

Code of Ethics & Professional Standards Policies

The National Association of Realtors® is America’s largest trade association, representing more than 1.4 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.
