    Promoting the Value of Using a REALTOR®


    The public relations and promotional resources of HAR are impressive. Several times each month, HAR publishes articles, press releases and holds photo opportunities for its volunteer leadership.

These Web sites afford us a unique opportunity to showcase Realtors in conjunction with their listings.

    Protecting REALTORS® in Political and Governmental Affairs


    Every single legislative session, lawmakers propose a tax on your hard-earned commissions. In other states, such policies have been passed, and real estate professionals forfeit a significant amount of their income to Uncle Sam. HAR represents you with a strong, powerful political voice at the local, state and national level and has consistently defeated such onerous proposals as a tax on commissions. To see HAR's latest governmental affairs projects. read more

    Commercial Gateway


    One of Commercial Gateway's most prominent features is the Commercial Information Exchange (CIE) that is available online at www.commercialgateway.com. This facility makes participating firms more profitable by providing a shared information infrastructure that eliminates the wasteful duplication of effort between member firms. The CIE also identifies and promotes a set of “Best Practices” in the marketing of properties and has greatly reduced the wasteful and inefficient practice of broadcast faxes and spam e-mails. The CIE also is an excellent way for commercial brokers to monitor market conditions. Also, HAR will soon make a greater investment in research by hiring another research assistant and plans to include aerial photographic images on CommericalGateway.com soon.
