Embracing Change and the Future of Real Estate


In our industry there’s been a great deal of discussion recently about embracing change. As we explore in this issue, change can occur in a variety of ways – from highly tech-focused new business models, to alternative financing methods, to looking at new home ownership and living arrangements. Our goal at NVAR is to ensure that we recognize what’s on the horizon so that we can help our members understand and embrace the future. You can read about these topics and more in the following pages.

This past May, several members of your leadership team attended Stefan Swanepoel’s annual T-3 Summit. We spent that time hearing from an impressive lineup of industry leaders like Swanepoel, Rich Barton, the co-founder and CEO of Zillow, Robert Reffkin, co- founder and CEO of Compass, Gary Keller, co-founder and CEO of Keller Williams, and others who shared their perspectives about where our profession is headed. It was incredibly thought-provoking, and challenged all of us to consider new concepts about the future of real estate.

The real value of our attendance at the summit is the take-aways that we can share with our members. You may already have read our follow-up coverage on NVAR.com. Also, we have several copies of Swanepoel’s Annual Trends Report ($279 retail value) and will have a drawing to give those to interested members. If you’d like to enter the drawing, email webmaster@nvar.com.

As dues billing begins for your 2020 membership year, we have a renewed focus on delivering value. Your leadership team has been working diligently to deliver on the strategic goals adopted in 2018 – reflected in our Vision 2020 strategic plan. For examples of some of our accomplishments to date, visit NVAR.com.

Your leadership and staff teams are highly motivated to continue the work of realizing our collective strategic vision. With that in mind, we will continue to support your business needs so that you can serve your clients with the utmost professionalism and achieve your professional goals.
