The Power of NAR's Deep-Rooted History

Take a look at some old photographs that illustrate how far back NAR's influence stretches.

While the #PowerofR campaign's primary purpose is to highlight the work that individual real estate professionals and REALTOR® associations do to empower the industry and the people they serve, it's important to note the long and storied history of the National Association of REALTORS® and how it has shaped real estate.

How Do You Show the #PowerofR?

Email REALTOR® Magazine senior editor Graham Wood at gwood@realtors.org, and tell us your story! Please include photos and/or videos of your project.

NAR has long roots stemming back to 1908, when it was originally founded as the National Association of Real Estate Exchanges. Over time, NAR created specialty divisions for appraisers, property managers, and other groups; it created and adopted the Code of Ethics, one of the most important documents setting guidelines for the profession; and it has lobbied for legislation in Washington critical to the strength of the industry.

But instead of going into a diatribe about NAR's accomplishments, here's a gallery of some old-time photos that shed a little light on how far back NAR's influence stretches.
