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 home buyers. 

The 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”, 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.

Rich Harty 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.


A New Generation of Homebuyers is Here: Meet Generation Z |


This 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.

The Executive Director's Corner...

Linda M. Surovick, NAEBA Executive Director/NRSI Chairman

Ready, Set, Search… 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 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, to capture 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!

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


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 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 at referralservice@naeba.infoor by calling  (800) 986-2322.
