New Delhi, 21st March 2017: With the growing presence of National Association of Realtors-India (NAR-India) across the country and the need of professional brokerage, NAR-India is celebrating the Journey of a Realtor from a mere Middleman to a salesman to the New Age service provider.
To honour the profession and to celebrate the remarkable journey of a Realtor, NAR-India has announced 21st March as the World Realtor Day. The very first of its kind celebration to honour the Realtor Fraternity is being hosted at the Hotel Shangrila, Bangalore. To embark the journey of professional brokerage business in India, this very initiative of NAR-India is in true spirits marking the Realtor Profession as a profession that demands all the respect and value that it truly deserves.
The entire week is dedicated to this celebration and as a prelude to the World Realtors’ Day, NAR has seen huge involvements of the 35+ local associations wholeheartedly getting involved in the 3 day nationwide community service by organising Blood Donation camps on 18th March, Feeding the Homeless on 19th March and serving orphanages and hospital on 20th March.
With great enthusiasm and zeal, the World Realtors’ Day will be followed by a National Annual Sports competition, NAR-India Olympiad at the Brigade Orchards, Devanahalli from 22nd March to 24th March 2017.
NAR-India marks the beginning of the New Age Era. To celebrate and show the support towards the real estate fraternity, the event will be celebrated across the country and all the local associations actively supported the concept.
The need of the hour in Indian Real Estate Industry is a perfect blend of FIT (Fulfilment – Inventory – Technology) which can cater to all the requirements of an ideal real estate organisation. We have seen companies losing out because of a single missing element out of FIT. The property portals usually don’t have the fulfilment arm and the transaction companies miss out on a reliable technology platform which can be used for lead generation. With developments like RERA, Benami Transaction Act, Demonetization, etc. Professional New Age Brokerage firms would be some of the few survivors in this highly competitive and unforgiving environment. Education and Training will play a crucial role in making us Realtors way above a local broker.
With the changing trends in Real Estate Brokerage and array of developments this industry has witnessed a phenomenal growth in terms of the role of the real estate broker. With the upcoming regulatory boards in each state and also the growing use of technology in the day to day operations, the future of brokerage is moving towards the right direction and gaining momentum with each passing day.
Mr. Sam Chopra, President, National Association of Realtors – India; Chairman, Association of Property Professional and Founder Chairman, India Operations of the worlds’ largest network of real estate Professionals RE/MAX says “The world has become a uniform global platform and realtors have started working across borders with the help of various business models and options available to trade internationally. In simple terms, I believe that the local real estate business combined with global exposure which I call being Glocal (GLObal + loCAL) is the key to Success. Associations like NAR-Global which is the world’s largest trade body and reserves the rights of the term REALTOR & NAR l-India have collaborated with likeminded people to impart education in this industry that was the need of the hour for this industry to grow and mature into a profession that stands on the firm pillars of Trust, Honesty and Integrity. This gives Realtors a more qualified value and hence makes them different from the crowd of the average unskilled transacting middlemen!”
