NAR's Director of Member Engagement preaches REALTOR® value
Based in Chicago, Nobu Hata is NAR’s Director of Member Engagement. In a week’s span at the end of April, he was busy doing plenty of that – engaging members - and across the Western U.S. no less. Hata was in Colorado Springs for the Region XI conference, days later in San Jose for an NAR Tech Edge event and lastly at the GLVAR general membership meeting in Las Vegas. The former REALTOR® is an expert in communication trends, social media and real estate technology. Hata believes there’s never been a better time to be a REALTOR® and that clients need REALTORS® now more than ever.
“A REALTOR’S® value now is helping clients through this (digital age),” he said. “With greater transparency and connectedness come new duties for REALTORS®. We are held to a higher standard and we need to stop keeping this a secret.”
Hata was alluding to a digital environment that allows clients access to more real estate information, but can be more confusing than ever for them. In short, yes there’s more information readily available on homes and taxes and specific communities, but this can overwhelm clients and it does little to help sort out contract language or the significance of inspections, among a myriad of other issues.

Members encouraged to keep account information current
NVAR invites REALTORS from across the state to check and update their personal profiles in RAMCO, which members can log into at NVAR.org. Members can also contact their local associations to provide updated account information.
It is vital that members keep their profile information -- including their current email address -- up to date. Current contact information allows NVAR and NAR to reach members with important information regarding billing, Calls to Action and upcoming events. Additionally, without a current email address, members could miss out on valuable information from NVAR’s weekly newsletter and the Advocate, which focuses on statewide legislative news.
If you have further questions or concerns about keeping your member account updated, you can inquire by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
