In May 1908, 120 men gathered in Chicago with the goal to "unite the real estate men of America." Their goal was to professionalize their industry and represent the interests of real estate brokers and owners nationally. What emerged from that meeting in 1908 was the National Association of Real Estate Exchanges, which thrives on 100 years later as the National Association of REALTORS® . The NAR Centennial Video celebrates REALTORS®' past accomplishments and looks forward to the next century of organized real estate.
