Red “R” or Blue “R”?
Our National Association of REALTORS® doesn’t just serve the REALTOR® member that is a residential REALTOR®. It also includes the commercial specialists too, who are also REALTOR® members. The blue “R” logo represents the residential REALTOR® and the red “R” logo is for commercial.
I am a member if the NAR Commercial Committee that met this morning and one of the issues that was brought up was how the commercial members need more involvement in raising the level of the red “R” within the association.
Now I don’t practice commercial real estate, rather I am a residential member that also specializes in property management. Since I serve on the NAR Property Management Forum, I have a seat on the commercial committee. But the commercial members make a valid point. They develop the land that is the gateway to providing residential housing that we residential members list and sell.
There are some big legislative issues that the commercial members fight that are so important as they have a trickle down effect to the residential legislation issues. We are a team and we need to support our commercial members because they fight for real property rights, which is one thing the REALTOR® association is all about. No matter what color your “R” pin is.
