A Guide to Transform a Public Space into a Community Place: REALTORS® and state and local association staff can learn the details of Placemaking, the kinds of projects placemaking entails, how to organize them, and where to go for assistance and resources.
Increasing Housing Opportunities
The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® offers a variety of programs through which REALTORS®, often supported by state and local association programs and classes, can play an active role in facilitating home ownership and affordable housing for more Americans.
We are committed to the principles of "smart growth" which encourage sustainable community growth and planning with respect to transportation and land use issues, crowded schools,open space, and bringing vacant properties back to productive use.
Encouraging Community Leadership
We also believe strongly that our organization and its members should play an active role in other forms of community outreach. The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® gives several awards each year to REALTORS® working hard to improve the lives of those in their communities.
