National Association of Realtors Announces Strategic Restructuring to Better Serve Members, Enhance Member Experience
Changes better align NAR with current environment in DC, enhance member experience and position NAR as leading voice in real estate technology innovation. WASHINGTON (December 11, 2018) - The National Association of Realtors® (NAR) announced today staffing changes in the organization's advocacy, marketing communications, member experience and technology groups that will strengthen NAR's ability to serve as the leading voice for Realtors® on key legislative policies while fostering technological innovation on behalf of its members and enhancing the member experience. "These changes represent the next phase in our ongoing efforts to advance the real estate business and industry and put members' interests first, from representing Realtors® and property owners in Washington to driving development of new technology in Silicon Valley," said Bob Goldberg, CEO of NAR. "We are executing on the vision set forth earlier this year to achieve more for our members and succeed in a period of upheaval and generational changes." A modernized approach to advocacy NAR's new organizational structure bolsters its advocacy efforts by realigning its lobbying resources to interact more effectively on key issues with members of Congress and key committees most relevant to the real estate industry. It also continues and enhances NAR's commitment to a 21st century public advocacy operation, striking a balance between building on its existing internal resources and the selective retention of outside firms that will extend its reach and members' voices in the nation's capital. "Our new, streamlined approach provides more flexibility to work with outside firms as we develop public policy campaigns on issues identified in our federal issue survey," said Shannon McGahn, senior vice president of government affairs. "Using well-connected, outside experts in these areas deepens our bench and amplifies our voice in Congress while giving our internal team more flexibility and time to focus on relationships across the executive and legislative branches of government." Integrating marketing, communications for better member experience Building on the integration of marketing and communications into one group, recently appointed chief marketing and communications officer Victoria Gillespie has developed four teams, including a new digital strategy group with data and analytics capabilities to drive more advanced marketing and communication strategies along with meetings/events/sales, content and creative, and media/public relations/advocacy/operations. Integrating skillsets across these teams enables NAR to improve efficiency and coordination, allowing for more timely, transparent, direct and relevant member communications. "Integrating our marketing and communications teams ensures we will have greater alignment in our messaging and brand presentation across all of our communication channels, while encouraging collaboration and creativity throughout the marketing and communications team," said Gillespie. The member experience team also has been reorganized into two teams, each focused on a target audience - members and organizations that serve our members, including Realtor® associations, affiliates, MLSs and global partners - and each having subject matter experts for association leadership, governance, commercial and global. "The reorganization of this area is intended to create a more holistic approach to serving our stakeholders," said Katie Johnson, general counsel and chief member experience officer of NAR. Technology with Realtors® in mind Following the creation of the strategic business, innovation & technology group (SBIT) earlier this year, NAR is forming an emerging technology team. This team will identify and evaluate emerging technologies and analyze their potential impact on real estate. It will also build relationships with corporations, governments and academic institutions that are researching and developing emerging technologies. The emerging technologies team will be part of a larger strategy and innovation group that replaces the Center for Realtor® Technology and will be led by a new vice president of strategy and innovation, who NAR expects to hire in early 2019. "I am excited to announce these new initiatives for the SBIT group," said Mark Birschbach, senior vice president of strategic business, innovation and technology. "These changes will drive additional efficiencies within SBIT and expand its efforts to drive innovation in real estate both globally and domestically as well as provide additional benefits to members." The National Association of Realtors® is America's largest trade association, representing more than 1.3 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.

MMSI Posts Record Sales Quarter for Membership Director
Davidsonville, MD – September 12, 2017 - MMSI, makers of Membership Director have announced that the third quarter sales for the company have set a record. In the third quarter of 2017, the company added four major Association of REALTORS® and MLS customers including San Diego Association of REALTORS®, Greater Fairfield MLS (via the SmartMLS merger), Dayton Area Board of REALTORS®, and Maine Listings. In total, the firm reports adding 42,500 active members to the platform this quarter. Membership Director is among the leaders in providing Realtor® Associations and MLSs with software to manage their members. The most important component of association and MLS management systems is the member portal – allowing agents to pay their dues, register for courses and events, vote in online elections, and stay engaged with the organization. For the San Diego Association of REALTORS®, "Membership Director has so much more of the functionality that we need to support the array of services we provide our agents," says Michael Mercurio, SDAR CEO. "Based on the needs of our 17,000 members, SmartMLS selected MMSI as our membership system. The new membership portal gives agents and brokers seamless access to update their profiles and pay their bills easily. The new membership portal allows the MLS to more effectively communicate and engage with our subscribers with targeted messaging. The portal is a one stop shop for member services, account management, and MLS-related needs. The conversion was quick and accurate, and our members love their new membership portal," says SmartMLS CO-CEO, Kathy Elson. According to CEO James Yockel, the key for the Greater Rochester Association of REALTORS® (GRAR) was "being able to put our entire value proposition for our members on a single clean, modern page. This 'consumer-grade' level of design and polish is the future of our industry and it's what agents nationwide have been demanding for years." Before switching to Membership Director by MMSI, Maine Listings was managing software they built internally for membership management. "For a very long time, we were unable to find software that was customizable enough to handle the needs of our MLS," said Cathy Libby, CEO of Maine Listings. A key piece of functionality developed for Maine Listings was the ability for brokers to Add, Edit, transfer, or drop agents from the broker roster. "Together with Maine Listings, we are pushing the boundaries of agent and broker self-service, from anywhere, on any device, 24/7. The new Member Portal also serves as an SSO dashboard, allowing Maine Listings, SmartMLS, and GRAR to drop their legacy SSO dashboards. Their members engage with their customized member portals each and every day," says Mark Richburg, MMSI Vice President. Out of the estimated 1,100 Boards who are chartered by the National Association of REALTORS®, around 400 have membership management software. Since buying Membership Director back from CoreLogic in 2011, the company has invested heavily in the product, experiencing 30% growth year over year for the past three years with 99% customer retention. The momentum continues in 2017 with the endurance of this extraordinary growth. Check out a video of the new Member Portal here: MMSI's Membership Director is the most accurate and customizable membership and accounting system specifically focused on REALTOR® associations and MLSs, on-site or in the cloud. With unmatched flexibility, we will meet your needs and exceed your expectations. With over 30 years of industry expertise and the highest standards of customer service, we are excited to help your organization cater to the needs of your members. Visit GoMMSI.com to learn more.

Realtors® Association of the Palm Beaches Merges with Greater Fort Lauderdale Realtors® to Create the Third Largest Group in the Nation
West Palm Beach, FL – May 11, 2017 – Two of the nation's largest Realtor® associations announced today that they are planning to merge to form the third largest local Realtor® association in the nation.  The Realtors® Association of the Palm Beaches (RAPB) and Greater Fort Lauderdale Realtors® (GFLR) will become the Realtors® of the Palm Beaches and Greater Fort Lauderdale, serving more than 30,000 real estate professionals. This anticipated merger creates a rare opportunity for the Realtors® in Palm Beach, Broward and St. Lucie Counties to have the best in class representing over 25,000 Association members and 30,000 MLS subscribers. The merged association's multiple listing services will carry more than 40,000 on-market listings, totaling over $21 billion in inventory.  This creates both a single source for homebuyers and greater exposure for sellers throughout the Southeast coast of Florida. The company will become one of the 10 largest MLSs in the United States. For brokers and agents, the merger creates a new, much larger territory for expansion and growth without the need for joining multiple MLSs.  The merged Association and combined MLS expect to create economies of scale, opportunities to invest in new, user-friendly technologies and increase services to members. The merged associations will synchronize their technologies and create a seamless experience for brokers and consumers.  Members may choose between FlexMLS and Matrix for their MLS system of choice. In addition, the merger will produce an even more powerful effort at the local, state and national level when advocating for homeownership and private property rights. "Our reimagined association will bring localized service to our members while harnessing our strength and size to provide cutting edge technology and influential advocacy. The organization will place even more emphasis on integrating key technologies," said Dionna Hall, current CEO of RAPB. Hall will be installed as the CEO of the merged Association and MLS. "In today's hyper-connected consumer world, Realtors® need every advantage possible. By combining our Associations, increasing our size, creating regional boards that understand the unique needs of localized markets, offering greater resources, and investing in the newest technology  –  we are quite literally giving our members every advantage possible." said current GFLR CEO Rick Barkett.  Last year, Mr. Barkett, announced his plans to retire. He plans to move forward with his retirement once the merger process is complete. "The partnership will create significant opportunities for our members.  First, by expanding the geographic territory of our association as well as the number of members, to dramatically amplify the amount of listing exposure and targeted leads they can generate. Second, we can save hundreds of dollars for our members that currently belong to both associations. Ideally, they can redeploy this money for marketing programs and other methods to grow their business", said current RAPB President John Slivon who will be the President of the merged entity. "With the combined strengths of RAPB and GFLR, we will be able to help our members better leverage the tools we offer and ensure that we are helping them learn how to best serve the needs of their clients with our technologies and industry and consumer trend education", stated GFLR President Ron Lennen. Lennen will be the President Elect of the merged Realtors® of the Palm Beaches and Greater Fort Lauderdale. Realtors® of the Palm Beaches and Greater Fort Lauderdale will maintain all six of the local service centers run by the two predecessor associations. For more information visit www.supportmerger.com.
