Pinterest for REALTORS®

What is Pinterest? It is a visual social media site, where you can pin ideas, inspirations, information, videos and things you like on a Board and then share them with your followers. Pinterest is simple to use. Go to Pinterest.com and click on the “Join Pinterest” button and create an account. You can re-pin pictures already on Pinterest or find your own pictures elsewhere. Adding a Pin It button to your browser toolbar is quick and easy, so you can add pictures at a moment’s notice.

International Referrals

With NAR Global, REALTORS® can diversify their clientele. By completing the Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) designation, the At Home with Diversity (AHWD) certification, or the Resort and Second Home Property Specialist (RSPS) certification, our members gain the global perspective to fully serve clients here and abroad. With this global perspective in mind, this Field Guide to International Referrals provides information on international legalities, education, best practices, etiquette, research, and more. Also check this guide for current news on the international real estate market, as well as a sample international referral form created by NAR’s CIPS group.

Errors & Omissions Insurance

The ever-increasing complexities of real estate transactions and the rising use of litigation have prompted a need for errors and omissions (E&O) insurance programs to reduce the risk to sales associates and the real estate firms they represent against potential lawsuits. The following items address E&O and professional liability insurance, answering many of the questions REALTORS® may have about how E&O insurance works and how to choose a provider.

Working with Baby Boomers

The over-50 population is a growing force in America and the rate of home ownership is higher among this age group than in any other. Today’s seniors have more active lifestyles, are more affluent and if they downsize their homes it is often in square footage rather than price. This field guide offers articles, statistical data and links to help REALTORS® gain insight into this lucrative demographic.
