Realtors Release 2018 Member Safety Report

As a part of Realtor® Safety Month, the National Association of Realtors® released its 2018 Member Safety Report, which surveyed over 3,000 Realtors®, members of the National Association of Realtors®, about how safe they feel while on the job, their personal safety experiences and the safety procedures they follow.

The report found that nearly a third of Realtors® experienced a situation that made them fear for their personal safety or the safety of their personal information, and that 43 percent of Realtors® choose to carry self-defense weapons.

“Realtors® understand better than anyone the safety risks associated with real estate transactions. Because of that,it is imperative for members to share safety protocols with home buyers so they can learn about what they may encounter during the home buying process,” said NAR CEO Bob Goldberg.

The most common circumstances that resulted in fearful situations were open houses, showing vacant and model homes, working with properties that were unlocked or unsecured and showing homes in remote areas.

National Museum of American History Opens “Within These Walls” Exhibit with Help from NAR

Theatrical Projection enhanced by technology to bring genuine American story to life

Today, the National Museum of American History’s opens its exhibition, “Within These Walls.” This exhibit will tell the story of over 200 years of American history through a partially reconstructed Georgian-style, two-and-a-half-story timber-framed house that stood from Colonial days through the mid-1960s in coastal Massachusetts

The National Association of Realtors® has sponsored this exhibit at the National Museum of American history since 2001, most recently helping to support a comprehensive update of its theater facilities. NAR will now serve as the sole sponsor of the “Within These Walls” exhibition through 2030.

At the institution designed to explore the infinite richness and complexity of American history, this Smithsonian’s latest exhibit will bring the stories of families across different American generations in five separate rooms across the home.

A walk through the exhibit puts three centuries of American life on display, from 1765 in Colonial Massachusetts to the mid twentieth century. A period that spanned the inception of a nation, it’s civil war, two world wars, and various milestone cultural and economic advancements.

This project was brought to life by a collaboration between museum staff, interactive and digital media designers Bluecadet, fabricators Capitol Museum Services and exhibit designers Howard+Revis.

Temporarily accompanying this exhibit is a display recognizing the 50th anniversary of the Fair Housing Act, which is available to view through Dec. 15, 2019.

The exhibit, located on Constitution Avenue in Northwest Washington D.C., is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m, and is free to the public.
