A Message from our President...

Andi DeFelice, ABR, Associate Broker, Exclusive Buyer's Realty, Savannah, GA

The definition of a Trade Association is an association of people or companies in a particular business or trade, organized to promote their common interests.

NAEBA is a Trade Association.  Are we, as an association, promoting the common interest of our membership?  Are we, as members, doing what we can to assist in those efforts?  

In October the Board of Directors is meeting to discuss this and other items as we plan for our 25th year as an association.  We are striving to offer true member benefits, promote our association and celebrate the fact that despite recessions, interest rate fluctuations and internal improprieties, we've made it 25 years!  

What do you want to see in the next year?  How will you become a bigger part of this association?  If you have multiple agents in your brokerage, do you encourage them to be involved with NAEBA? 

In the next week, you will receive a survey that will be used to guide us in our planning session.  Please take the time to complete it so that we can know what your wants and needs are and how we can implement them into our plans.


We have a terrific two and one-half days planned for the

2020 NAEBA Educational Conference on January 20, 21 & 22. 

Take a look at our schedule at a glance HERE

Registration will open in September!

NRSI Update
An update from David Alvarez, Director of Marketing, NRSI


July 2019 exceeded all expectations as the month outperformed June 2019’s record-breaking results.  July 2019 exceeded June 2019 as the highest grossing revenue month in the existence of NRSI.  


NRSI matched 281 consumers nationally with buyer agents to initiate their property search.  Of the 281 prospective home buyers, 155 were matched with NAEBA agents, 120 were matched with Best-Non-NAEBA (BNN) agents, and 6 buyer agent requests went unplaced.    Revenue hit a milestone as the highest grossing month of revenue since the inception of NRSI!  Web visitor traffic was also up when compared to a year ago as saw 7,110 visitors in July of 2019 compared to 4,142 in July of 2018.  Additionally, the dream of home ownership was made a reality for 36 happy consumers as buyer agents guided them throughout the real estate transaction and closed on their properties.  


Lastly, we encourage NAEBA members with questions, or feedback regarding NRSI,  to please feel free and email us at or call us at (800) 986-2322.
