A Message from our President...
Andi DeFelice, ABR, Associate
Broker, Exclusive Buyer's Realty, Savannah, GA
Rich Harty and I had the privilege to represent
NAEBA at the 54th
Annual NAREE Convention. The sessions were so
informative, especially the one
about Gen Z. I’ve shared the article below, so we
all can gain knowledge about the largest group of current and future
economists that spoke all felt that interest rates will
remain low through the
next year. Everyone spoke to the lack of inventory in most of the country and attribute this partly to
the lack of “touch labor”...contractors, electricians and truck
drivers to deliver building materials.
We were able to meet,
one on one, with over 40 journalists and introduce or remind them of NAEBA. We
reinforced that NAEBA has members nationwide and should be their
source for any pieces about home buyers or the home buying
process. I am confident that we will be hearing from many of
them for upcoming articles.
and I had the pleasure of spending time with Ilyce
Glink at the NAREE conference. Ilyce has mentioned NAEBA
in her New York Times best seller, 100
Questions Every First-Time Homes Buyer Should Ask.
Generation of Homebuyers is Here: Meet Generation Z | Homes.com
was a presentation at the NAREE conference I'd like to share!.
Very interesting information for all of us to use in our marketing to
the next generation of home buyers.

Ready, Set, Search…
NAEBA.info now has the capability
for quick and easy member to member
search and will now serve members who want to seek and
find a fellow NAEBA member for a member to member referral. All 124
of our NAEBA Designated Broker profile's have been built out for
search at www.naeba.info
under "Member Directory". You do need to log into the
site to access this area. We have a member search by state and cities served as well
as member search by first or last name.
In the State and Cities served search,
all NAEBA Designated Brokers in any one given state, two
independent searches are required. Many of our members are licensed in two
states so you'll need to do a search in the first field to capture
all those members who reside and are licensed in that state and then
you'll need to do second independent search in the State #2 field to
capture all those members who have a second state license. Go try it
out! This new feature will replace the shout out on our
Facebook Group page in a far more effective way and once you find a
fellow member you can instantly send them a message too!

reported May 1, 2019 to May 31, 2019)
An update from David Alvarez, Director of
The month of May delivered solid results for the
NAEBA Referral Service (NRSI). NRSI matched
284 prospective home buyers with buyer agents to
initiate their property search. Of the 284 prospective home buyers, 153 were matched
with NAEBA agents, 120 were matched with Best Non NAEBA (BNN) agents,
and 11 buyer agent requests went unplaced. Revenue was slightly down when compared to
May 2018 figures, but the second quarter of the year is on pace to
surpass the second quarter of 2018. Web traffic to www.naeba.org was
also encouraging as 8,363 folks visited the website, which was
significantly up from 4,136 a year ago. Additionally, the
dream of home ownership became a reality during the month of May 2019
for 32 consumers! Buyer Agents
successfully guided all 32 consumers through a path
of home ownership by navigating them through the often challenging
home-buying process. Lastly, we encourage NAEBA members with
questions, or feedback regarding NRSI to please feel free to email us
by calling (800) 986-2322.
