In an effort to meet the changing needs of today’s diversified real estate firms, NAR introduced Real Estate Services (RES), a program designed to aid real estate firms and their agents in implementing and maximizing their core business services, such as mortgage operations; title, escrow and settlement; home warranties and inspections; insurance and concierge service.
Launched in 2007, the program was created to work closely with representatives from the diversified real estate community to better understand their business interests and to identify how best NAR could bring them tangible value. Through RES, diversified real estate services firms are given an avenue to provide meaningful input to NAR, similar to what individual Realtors® have been afforded over the years. With this program, NAR helps to ensure a better future for not just the firms involved, but for the many Realtors® who work with them.
The RES group works in collaboration with the Real Estate Services Advisory Board, which is comprised of the top leaders from some of the largest diversified real estate firms in the United States. The Board provides guidance to RES staff and NAR on topics, information and actions of value to diversified firms and the NAR membership at large.
