Tony Lewis  many people are tired of NAR spending money on glitz like the new building in DC and politicians and not working for the members anymore. NAR has lost its way. They are not working on issues like property rights... they are having cocktails with politicians. They are #2 at the top of the list for money spent on lobbying   WHY?

There has been a lot of dissatisfaction about NAR.

After the Logo mess, we find out they spent $250,000 that was not well spent.

They are out of control and if the members do not step up, they will continue to take our money and give us nothing.

NO to raising the dues.
