The National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) announced a rollout date of September 18, 2018 for its second domain to connect its members and members of the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) with industry consumers.

“.realestate” joins “.realtor” are NAR’s two domain connections to link together buyers, sellers, investors and owners with American and Canadian association member REALTORS®. According to NAR president Elizabeth Mendenthal, each top-level domain will “help real estate professionals and businesses better connect with… (consumers)…that remain essential to every real estate transaction. Making use of this pioneering technology will help them to market themselves and their listings, services or resources in new and creative ways.”
