    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.
