Engaging members

Engaging members

I think we need to engage our diverse membership and listen to them, to create our future.

We know members are concerned about technology, about redundancy and about their future. Many have told us they feel we’re missing out on the next big thing. We have to come together as a group, let go of old ideas, and listen to and take the lead from members.

Recently a member suggested, “Why don’t we start with what the perfect experience would be for a REALTOR® and their client in the future – say five years down the road – and then work backwards to now so we can be assured of delivering it.” 

Voices like these need to be heard to build and improve trust so that we ensure we’re moving in the right direction.
