I think NAR is out of touch with the needs of the agents they CLAIM to support.  They should be disbanded and the leadership forced to be telemarketers for zillow.

I find them so POORLY done that I can reach no other conclusion than 'I am not the target audience.'

Unfortunately, only pharmacy companies, home alert or hearing aid providers target those with snow on the mountain.

If you don't 'get it,' assume it was not intended for you, or me.

Susan is right. I do love the NAR commericials and the tie in with Modern Family, but if you get a chance to see the Canadian motorcycle gang real estate commerical, it drop dead funny.

I think they attract some attention but personally I believe they are A WASTE of our dues... how many people do you know that actually WATCH live TV? I would guess that among people I know 90% or more don't watch live they use the DVR and skip commercials.

    I have until January 31 to decide whether or not to keep paying taxes to this POS for a trade organization.  Between the $250,000 they gave to Hillary Clinton, and these worthless commercials, it's a tough choice to make.

It's a year long Modern Family run that tries to show the millions of viewers (12+ million) 2nd in it's prime time spot. Why you need a REALTOR in your life. The behind the scenes explanation from WSJ. Funny to see in this clip how the REALTOR shows his personal distaste for a feature, a painting and then the buyer says I love it... and he back peddles to regain his confidence, her trust in him. The video link.  (Careful, I am taking you away from AR to the youtube beehive Patricia Kennedy ) Ever had one of your kids help you sell your property? Funny.
