If you feared more of the same when Bob Goldberg was named CEO of NAR, take heart. The rhetoric of our new leadership is focused on engagement, openness and transparency — knocking down the façade of the “ivory tower” and facilitating dialogue with members, even those who disagree.

Goldberg has been a senior executive with NAR since 1995, and his accomplishments include the launch of the Realtor Benefits Program, the introduction of the top-level domain initiative, and the expansion of NAR’s technology partnerships via Second City Ventures and its REach Technology Accelerator.

Prior to NAR, Goldberg served as senior vice president with PRC Realty Systems, the national’s leading provider of online multiple listing systems.

Goldberg is lauded for his leadership and has forged his career on designing programs and partnerships to strengthen the Realtor organization and drive success for its 1.2 million members.

Today, he explains his approach to ushering in a new era at NAR, discussing his pursuit of transparency through social media and interviews.
