The National Association of REALTORS® was founded as the National Association of Real Estate Exchanges on May 12, 1908 at the YMCA Auditorium in Chicago, IL. Its objective was "to unite the real estate men of America for the purpose of effectively exerting a combined influence upon matters affecting real estate interests."
NAR and the REALTOR® Team Store have partnered to offer REALTOR® Party and REALTOR® Rally items to REALTORS® and your associations at a low cost.
Yesterday the National Association of Realtors® was recognized with two gold Stevie Awards at the 10th Annual American Business Awards.

Realtors® build communities in part by dedicating their time and resources to improving the lives of their neighbors as well as others across the country. Volunteering Works, an annual program that matches Realtors® who work on small-scale charitable efforts with mentors and awards them seed money, helps Realtors® expand their reach within their communities. The program recently announced this year's recipients.
