Proudly offering realtor pride… 2009 MeMbership reference Guide …and endless opportunities to wear it well. Tough times won’t last, but tough people will. That’s the theme behind a new bestselling book. And it’s the philosophy at the heart of our REALTOR® campaign. We know the last year has been tough for some of our friends, while others have prospered. No matter your immediate past experience, we hope that one constant for you is this: pride. Pride in you industry, and your own contribution to it. Indeed, it’s the natural order of the world to see cycles of ebb and flow. But what doesn’t ebb is our commitment to you, our members, and to the many consumers you represent. It is the enduring faith of our members in the good work they are doing that will help end these tough times and return many to a feeling of optimism. Your unwavering commitment to this profession sends a powerful message to your community. After all, a young couple seeking to buy their first home is no less enthusiastic than those couples you met a few years ago. That start-up company that outgrew its space is just as serious, and committed, as were the start-ups you helped in years past. Choosing to become a REALTOR® puts you in the company of professionals who turn “hope” into “home.” They turn dreams into realities. When you wear your REALTOR® pin, you instantly link yourself to the American dream. Please wear it with pride. member benefits The cost of membership is less than $1 a day.
