Our Next Great Chapter

NAR's interim CEO says the association must continue to amplify its mission and educate others about its rich history and everything great about its members.
New NAR Interim CEO Nykia Wright

2023 was a year of transition for our association and industry. Despite the challenges, NAR members and staff remained steadfast in our shared commitment to helping people across the country realize the dream of homeownership.

I continue to have a deep admiration for this association’s work, and I’m optimistic about what we can accomplish together in the coming months. There are two critical priorities I intend to work toward to help NAR turn the page and enter its next, great chapter.

We must continue to amplify NAR’s mission and educate others about our rich history and everything we know to be great about our members. As we continue to bear witness to misinformation and attacks on the integrity of our association, it is critical we stand our ground. Our Leadership Team and I are leveraging every opportunity we can to combat false assertions and make clear the true value that REALTORS® and NAR provide. Now it’s time to make sure others do, too—within the real estate industry and beyond.

My focus is on making the necessary decisions from a business perspective to help this association move into its next chapter. NAR is a 115-year-old organization, and it has evolved many times to remain an industry leader. I aim to be part of the ongoing effort to set up NAR to achieve its next hundred years of success.

I am optimistic about the tremendous opportunities for NAR in the year ahead. The Leadership Team and I are committed to ensuring our association can remain a positive force in the real estate industry.
