NAR Launches 'NAR en Espanol' Website
WASHINGTON (October 13, 2020) -- The National Association of Realtors today launched NAR en Español, a fully-Spanish sub site to the association's main webpage, nar.realtor. As its Spanish-speaking membership continues to rise at a historic pace, the group's NAR en Español initiative has since 2018 helped local and global members leverage their Realtor affiliation while facilitating various networking and educational resources for Spanish-speaking Realtors®. Most recently, a component of NAR's "Right Tools, Right Now" program has focused on ensuring local and global Spanish-speaking Realtors® and bilateral partners are aware of and have access to the resources NAR provided its members in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. "I am proud of how NAR and its affiliates have collaborated on and supported this program from the very beginning," said Alejandro Escudero, NAR's manager of global alliances and business development. "Adding content and resources in Spanish will help us increase NAR brand recognition and support amongst Realtor® members and consumers both domestically and around the world. And by ensuring many of the great resources NAR produces for its members are also available in Spanish, the NAR en Español platform will help us to continue engaging and educating our Spanish speaking stakeholders." NAR en Español maintains a significant focus on member education initiatives, last summer hosting over 300 students from 15 countries for two fully virtual Accredited Buyer Representative and Seller Representative Specialist courses, held in Spanish. "NAR is committed to elevating our members' levels of professionalism, and we know that increasing and enhancing educational opportunities is one of the best ways to get there," said NAR Vice President of Association Affairs Mabél Guzmán. "These courses are not only critical toward understanding the latest trends and changes within our industry, but also a fantastic way to build relationships and grow our Realtor® networks. In addition, much of this content will help provide a positive real estate experience for Hispanic buyers and sellers, a rapidly growing segment of our industry." Visit www.nar.realtor/nar-en-espanol to access NAR's new Spanish language webpage. "The vision that NAR's Engagement team has shown throughout the development of NAR en Español has been transformative for both our association and our industry," said Katie Johnson, general counsel and chief member experience officer at NAR. "Evolving from a simple NAR en Español Facebook page into the comprehensive collection of resources we offer to our members today, I'm so proud to see this association enhance the support we provide to this important and ever-growing segment of real estate professionals." The National Association of Realtors® is America's largest trade association, representing 1.4 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.
