The "Mark" Turns 100: Get Ready to Celebrate

Find out what NAR is planning in 2016 to celebrate this remarkable milestone.

October 28, 2015

The trademark term “REALTOR®” was adopted in 1916 to identify the members of the National Association of REALTORS®, a revolutionary group of individuals deeply committed to integrity, community, and protecting the American dream of property ownership. Throughout 2016, NAR will celebrate the history and future of what it means to be a REALTOR®. As part of the celebration, NAR will launch an interactive website where members can share how they are making a difference within their communities. You’re invited to submit your own story and to nominate fellow REALTORS® whose contributions demonstrate pride in their REALTOR® identity and show how they help consumers understand the power of REALTORS®. Look for more information at in early 2016.
