The REALTOR® Emeritus Status

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Liberty Homes RS-#62825

This past Friday, June 5th, 2009 we had our 2009 Summer GMM (General Membership Meeting) at the Hilton Hawaiian Village held by our Honolulu Board of Realtors. The theme was FRESH Tech Thinking and it was great to see many show up.

Classes, vendor fair, games, awards, luncheon, door prizes and recognitions. My BIC told me the big 'secret' before we attended the luncheon where they would annouce something grand.

Our Principal Broker/Owner, Douglas Fortner could not attend and we found out by the recognition speech that he recieved the REALTOR® Emeritus Status and they will announce it at the San Diego NAR Conference this November.

REALTOR® Emeritus Status:  Any person who has held membership in the National Association as a REALTOR®, REALTOR-ASSOCIATE®, or a combination of both, for a cumulative period of 40 years in one or more Associations of REALTORS® is eligible for REALTOR® Emeritus status.


Upon approval by the Board of Directors of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®, no further payment of dues is necessary to the National Association by the Member Association of which the REALTOR® Emeritus is a member.  READ MORE  >>>> REALTOR® Emeritus Status

Sally:  Thanks for your explanation of the Realtor Emeritus status.  It sounds like a good idea.  You, of course, due to the fact that you are such a youngster, will probably not reach your fortieth year as a Realtor for about another thirty-five years or so... :)  So... maybe somewhere around your sixtiety birthday.  Take care...

Sally, that's so cool!  I guess that is one award I'm not quite old enough for!  Or by the time I'd be eligible, I'd be really, really old!

Sally, exciting stuff!  So, at the ripe (old) age of 68, I'll be eligible for this award!  Question is whether I'll still be actively selling real estate at that time.  Only time will tell.

Sally that is a long time, most of the Realtors today probably were not even born when he first joined.

Thanks Celeste, I had not even heard of this special honor before. Of course, myself I'm a "few" years away from it...  I think not too many people would ever reach this status considering so many of us get into the profession later in life.
