In a recent survey, more than 1,000 Arizona REALTORS® answered questions to help focus state association programs and services. Here is the first in a series of responses and some examples of how we are responding.

What is your biggest business concern or issue?

    Part-time and under-educated agents

    Although we have no control over who applies for a real estate license, or how many hours they may work, we are working to be your most trusted source for professional development and business resources by providing low-or-no cost educational programs.

    Public perception and awareness

    A few bad apples won’t spoil the barrel, if we work together to mentor new and willing-to-learn agents, as well as report any who refuse to abide by NAR’s strict Code of Ethics.

    Your state association is committed to consumer outreach, including our annual Ask a REALTOR® hotline (supported with paid media) and this year’s Totes for Hope public service campaign.

    Generating leads and converting them to clients

    Arizona REALTORS® wants you to succeed, that’s why subscribing to the VOICE weekly e-newsletter and managing your website/blog subscriptions are so important.

    Subscribers get trade secrets and tips from other REALTORS® too, for example:
