(NAR) The National Association of REALTORS, won right to .Realestate
NAR makes choosing a good real estate domain name (in .Realestate) easier - if you qualify.
Not many dots (com, net, etc.) have exclusive, industry professional only access, .Realestate is one. For Brokers, Agents, & RE Professionals choosing a good real estate domain name in .realestate, seems like a nice benefit.
Just an FYI: This article is written for informational purposes. Although we offer brand consulting & premium domain names, we are not real estate professionals &/or members of NAR, so we can not participate in this market
Choosing a Good Real Estate Domain Name, a win for The National Association of Realtors
Not sure how nice of a perk NAR members know they have? & it looks like being associated with the real estate business may get you access to another NAR, won, industry identifying domain name extension.

If you dont have a chance to read through this linked article, & you are a NAR member, you may want to: The article made a point to headline a call out an important message that appears time sensitive.
The article headline reads:
"NAR's '.realestate' domains are available for pre-order now. The move allows members with '.realtor' domains to get first crack at the new top-level domain before its public launch on Nov. 26"
Make sure you look into this deadline, if it apples to or you / you may be eligible for, as a chance like this doesn't come around very often.
