As the owner/broker of Progressive Realty Corporation, my objective is to set the standard for my agents to follow! Call me to see the difference that nearly 25 years of local experience makes! I have at worked four major real estate franchises and always felt there was something they could improve on. Therefore, I have reverse engineered Progressive Realty Corporation based on recognizing the strengths of my previous affiliations with Realty World, Coldwell Banker, John L. Scott and Re/Max. I believe in empowering the consumer via the internet. In July 2008, I became the only Certified EPRO Trainer living in the State of Idaho for the National Association of Realtors. In this capacity, I help other agents receive their EPRO designation to prove their competence in using today's technology to help facilitate their real estate business. I welcome the opportunity to be interviewed to be your exclusive Realtor!

I want to make you the beneficiary of my nearly 25 years of experience and knowledge of the financial, investment, tax and building sides of the real estate. I am so confident that if you select me and for some reason change your mind, I will cancel our agreement if I can't resolve your conflict within 24 hours! If you are looking for an agent with a specific field of expertise that I am not proficient in, let me know and I will have one of my other agents take excellent care of you. Give me a call and see the difference my experience will make in getting you the best possible price with the least possible problems! Thank you.

I have closed brand new homes with over 00 local builders, so if we can't find the right home, let's have one built! Let me put my experience and Broker's License to work for you!

How Does the National Association of Realtors Justify 923* BoD?

There have been lots of changes lately at the National Association of Realtors (NAR).  The only thing constant in this world today is in fact change itself.They thought about changing the LOGO but after spending countless hours and money, they appear to have tabled or abandoned that change.They announced an increase in dues which always will cause people to complain.  They slowed down, heard but not sure if they listened, and appear to be going forward with the dues increase from $120 a year to $150However, the one thing I have been struggling with is how in the world they justify having over 900* voting NAR Directors?  I had no idea what the "right" number should be so I started doing a bit of research.  I tried to find companies/organizations that even had 100+ directors and failed in my attempt.  Here is what I have learned so far:According to: https://www.briefinggovernance.com/2017/12/as-spencer-stuart-releases-its-latest-sp-500-board-index-how-does-your-board-compare/ they looked at the board composition of S&P 500 companies and found the board size averaged 10.8 members and only 18% had over 13 members!  According to this article: http://graphics.wsj.com/boards-of-directors-at-SP-500-companies/ there were 4,500 people serving on the S&P 500 which would be an average of only 9 directors per company!  This Wall Street Journal article illustrates that smaller boards get bigger returns: https://www.wsj.com/articles/smaller-boards-get-bigger-returns-1409078628 stating "...large boards underperformed peers by 10.85 percentage points".  In this article: https://www.boardeffect.com/blog/board-size-nonprofit-governance/ it states "the optimal number of directors for boards to make a decision is seven. Every added board member after that decreases decision-making by 10%." That would mean that NAR has 916* Board of Directors who's effective contribution is -10% each!One organization that is very controversial today is the NRA.  (No I wasn't dyslexic - grin.)  They claim to have 5 million members compared to NAR's 1.2 million.  Somehow, they still get the job done at NRA with 76 board members.  That means NRA is about four times the size with 10% of the board members!If the National Association of Realtors would consider reducing the board size drastically, think of the money that would be saved for it's members while simultaneously increasing it's effectiveness!  I know that NAR does not pay most of it's board members, but they do have to communicate with them, house them for meetings at least twice a year, train them, etc.  Some local and state associations do pay for travel and expenses for their members who serve on the board.While we are at it, we should look at the benefits of having people that are not Realtors on the board of directors.  We should have people that insight from the mortgage industry, title industry, technology partners, attorneys, etc considered so we get their insights.I will be sending this blog to the people that are serving via our Boise Regional Realtors and Idaho Association of Realtors to see what they think.I have tried to look to find the benefit of having possibly the largest board of directors in the United States, but so far, the evidence is to the contrary.  * This blog originally claimed there were "over 700" NAR Board of directors, but I found the actual number on their website so I updated the blog accordingly.  Jim Paulson, CRS, AHWD, EcoBroker, GRI, SRES, ePRO, SFROwner/Broker - Progressive Realty CorporationSpecializing in Boise Idaho Real Estatehttp://www.IdahoMLStours.comHttp://www.Progressive-Realty.info
