Why In the Hell Do You Have to Pay For the NAR Public Image Campaign ?

Here's a breakdown of what my annual dues for 2013 cost without the exorbitant 600 dollar a year mls fee:

Local Dues-Realtor 2013   160.00  
State Dues-2013   105.00  
National Dues-2013   120.00  
2013 TAR Issues Mobilization  15.00 (what in the hell is this ?)  
2013 NAR Public Image Campaign  35.00 (give me a stinking break !)
Invoice Total:  435.00  

What in the hell is the $35 dollar NAR Public Image Campaign assessment ?

$15 Dollars for the Tennessee Association of Realtors Issue Mobilization ?

What are they mobilizing ?

Gas for the association's three miles per gallon Winnebago cross country vacation ?

Is NAR's image so tarnished now that they need an extra 35 bucks to clean it up ?

What else comes with the magazine subscription ?

I agree. Why are we paying for this public image cost?

Posted by Edward & Celia Maddox, EXPERIENCE & INTEGRITY - WE TAKE THE HIGH ROAD (The Celtic Connection Realty) over 7 years ago

Well If it makes you feel any better we pay $435  in BucksCounty Pennsylvania .I do believe in Phila Pa it is even higher

It's an unfair assessment, Ed & Celia.

The Federal Communications Commission should look at this.

NAR has non-profit status.

Could NAR members or administrative staff indirectly profit from a public image campaign, if one ever takes place ?

NAR nickles and dimes members to death, Hannah.

We are all just the food chain for the growing fiefdom that NAR has been building for years. We really don't need a lot of the crap that they feed us.
Posted by Ralph Janisch ABR CRS Broker, Selling Northwest Houston to good people like you! (Janisch & Co.) over 7 years ago

The reason why hundreds of thousands of members have quit NAR is because the food is making them vomit.
