Einstein’s Riddle

Can You Solve Einstein’s Riddle??

The Situation:

  1. There are 5 houses in five different colors.
  2. In each house lives a person with a different        nationality.
  3. These five owners drink a certain type of beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar and keep a certain pet.
  4. No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar or drink the same beverage.

 The question is: Who owns the fish?


  • the Brit lives in the red house
  • the Swede keeps dogs as pets
  • the Dane drinks tea
  • the green house is on the left of the white house
  • the green house’s owner drinks coffee
  • the person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds
  • the owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill
  • the man living in the center house drinks milk
  • the Norwegian lives in the first house
  • the man who smokes blends lives next to the one who keeps cats
  • the man who keeps horses lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill
  • the owner who smokes BlueMaster drinks beer
  • the German smokes Prince
  • the Norwegian lives next to the blue house
  • the man who smokes blend has a neighbor who drinks water

Einstein wrote this riddle this century. He said that 98% of the world could not solve it.

Want to be on a NAR Committee? Here’s how!

To lay the important foundation and groundwork for understanding the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) committee selection process, it may be helpful to ask yourself the following questions:
           Who, if anyone, has encouraged you to apply?
           Why do you want to be on a NAR Committee; what are your qualifications?
           What do you know about NAR’s Committee structure?
           How do you find a committee that interests you?
           Where do you go to get all there is to know about NAR committees?
           When will you make a commitment to pursue your selection of a NAR committee?

These are some of the questions you need to explore and address, as well as determining if NAR committee membership is something you really want.

What Are NAR’s Committees? When it comes to making decisions at the national level, NAR’s committees, advisory boards, forums, and councils are the first place where ideas are discussed and voted upon before being approved by the Board of Directors. (Read more on REALTOR.org)

Here are some important, basic steps you can take to ensure you’re on the right track.

Make sure your NRDS ID personal information is correct and current. This is especially important when it comes to your email address (NAR’s primary method of communication is via email). Please note that changes in your business contact information must be handled by your local association.

One of the fastest ways to look up your NRDS number is to go to the My Account tab at the top of AARonline.com, then visit REALTOR.org to confirm your personal information.

Login to create your Expertise Profile, so that NAR has a detailed resource when selecting committee, work group and presidential advisory group appointments, or when seeking members for other volunteer opportunities.

You will be able to indicate the level of participation with which you feel comfortable when completing the profile form. Please note that this is not synonymous with submitting a Committee Application (login also required). If you wish to serve on a specific committee, you must still submit an online committee application during NAR’s application period.

Read and re-read the NAR REALTOR® Committee Structure. If you are serious about becoming a committee member this is a “must” read. It is a 78-page document and comprehensively covers most everything you want to know about NAR’s committees including, but not limited to timelines; application and appointment notification process; committee policy, procedures and functions; plus a complete list of committees, advisory boards and forums.

On the Committee Selection Process webpage, you can enter and view committee recommendations. Once applications are submitted and endorsements received, they are compiled into reports, which are used by NAR Officers in the committee selection process. You will only have access to the applications that you have entered.

When given the opportunity to write an endorsement for someone, focus on content quality, not quantity. Avoid merely listing leadership positions or titles someone has held. Place the spotlight of your endorsement on specific experiences and achievements. Mention individual accomplishments in areas of specialization; articles written; research conducted; qualities that typically make them stand out; offer reasons why they, in particular, are best suited for a specific committee.

Take a moment to think about what you want to state before you actually put it in writing. Is it a truthful and an accurate representation? Will the quality of your endorsement be helpful and convincing to a potential decision-maker?

Lastly, of utmost importance, when you write an endorsement for someone that has expressed an interest in more than one committee refrain from the temptation to “copy and paste” that information to a committee with a different purpose and function.

The Value of REALTOR® Education

REALTOR® Designation Awareness Month is recognized annually in the month of November. The National Association of REALTORS® encourages members to increase their professionalism, marketability, and proficiency through the pursuit of an officially-endorsed NAR designation or certification. If you’re not swayed merely by the new knowledge you’ll gain by earning a designation, you’ll also be happy to know that, according to NAR, a REALTOR® who earns one or more designations also earns more money. Based on data from the 2013 NAR Member Profile, the median income of REALTORS® without a designation was $33,500 and the median income of those with at least one designation was $61,100: a difference of $27,600.

The Arizona Association of REALTORS® supports your desire to gain more knowledge, more income and raise the level of professionalism throughout the real estate industry.

“The value of REALTOR® education is so much more than the letters you place behind your name,” said Barb Freestone, senior vice president, Professional & Business Development at AAR. “It’s about the skills you learn from true industry experts that will set you apart from others in your field. Earning a designation or certification helps REALTORS® reach their career goals much faster. With a comprehensive curriculum, you can expand your referral network, stand out from the crowd and raise your level of professionalism. We want you to come away from these courses with the skills you need to enact real change in your career and in our industry.”

Currently, AAR offers many NAR designations and will be adding more in the coming year. Below is a brief breakdown of a few of the designations offered by AAR. To find an upcoming class, visit the AAR calendar.

ABR®: Accredited Buyer’s Representative

This designation provides the expertise REALTORS® need to gain a competitive edge in serving today’s home buyers. Accredited Buyer’s Representatives (ABR®) stand for the benchmark of excellence in buyer representation. Not only do ABR® designees earn more, but member benefits such as publications, marketing tools, a referral network and other resources, help them maintain that edge.

Note: This is a two-day course, plus a one-day elective.

CRB: Certified Real Estate Broker Manager

To stay ahead of the competition, brokers and managers must learn new trends and business strategies to improve individual and company performance. The Certified Real Estate Broker Manager designation is open to any real estate professional and delivers the knowledge and resources needed to create opportunities to excel. After taking CRB courses, managers and brokers will be better positioned to develop and streamline operating practices, market and position his or her company, and better understand how to keep brokerage costs in check. Read about who can participate in the CRB.

GRI: Graduate, REALTOR® Institute

The GRI designation is the cornerstone of REALTOR® education. This professional development course provides REALTORS® with in-depth knowledge of legal and regulatory issues, technology, sales process and professional standards and is taught by professionals with proven track records of success.

In 2014, the GRI designation will undergo a major overhaul, evolving into a designation that can be tailored fit each individuals needs. New classes and a more streamlined approach will give REALTORS® the opportunity to earn multiple designations at once and will be flexible in terms of time and learning preference. To see how the GRI has evolved to meet the needs of today’s REALTOR® visit www.azgri.com

SRES: Seniors Real Estate Specialist®

This designation educates REALTORS® on how to develop business building skills and the resources needed to serve the 50+ consumer. One student said recently, “I learned so much more than I expected to in this course that will help me be a better REALTOR®, no matter what age my clients are.”

RSPS: Resort & Second-home Property Specialist

NAR’s advanced education-based certification is designed for resort and second-home professionals. This core course focuses on the knowledge and skill base that real estate professionals need to specialize in buying, selling, or managing second homes in a resort, recreational, and/or vacation destination and properties for investment, development, or retirement. Find out more here.

SRS: Seller Representative Specialist

SRS is the premier seller agency designation recognizing real estate professionals who have completed special education in seller representation. The SRS covers a comprehensive look at seller representation, including marketing, but also discusses the full lineup of legal issues, Code of Ethics issues and practical issues of getting the listing from acquisition to closing.

According to one student “This class was a great investment in my business and me. I learned quite a bit about ramping up my listing presentation, how to make myself look more professional and help my customers and clients see that I have their best interests at heart…”


The e-PRO® certification teaches you the latest social media technologies to create an online presence vital to reaching today’s hyper-connected consumers. The National Association of REALTORS® has partnered with the Social Media Marketing Institute (SMMI) to develop a program to help you successfully compete in today’s ever-evolving real estate market. The new e-PRO® curriculum shows you how to use the latest social media technologies, such as Facebook and Twitter, to create an online presence vital in reaching today’s hyper-connected consumers. NAR’s e-PRO® certification also teaches REALTORS® how to take advantage of rich media and e-office strategies to run his or her business more efficiently.

Become a Certified Risk Management Specialist

AAR also offers the rCRMS (Certified Risk Management Specialist) program to REALTORS® across the state. This certification program is taught by practicing attorneys in Arizona and helps members successfully manage real estate transaction while reducing clients’ exposure to potential risk. Earning this certification will give your clients the utmost protection during their transaction!
Requirements for certification include attending one contract course, three core courses, and one elective course. The requirements must be completed within a two-year period, and rCRMS holders must recertify every two years by taking one of the contract courses.
Watch the rCRMS video to find out more!

Do You Speak House?

All homes talk. Sometimes it just takes a trained ear to hear what they’re saying. In 2014, the Arizona Association of REALTORS® will introduce a one-day course in the recently-revamped GRI designation that will teach both new and seasoned REALTORS® how to understand that property condition, warranted items, inspection reports and more can speak volumes about a home.

The Market Essentials: Property Condition course will be rolled out next year to those pursuing their GRI designation. This course will focus on understanding:

  • The impact of property condition on salability and potential buyers.
  • Financing opportunities depending on property condition.
  • Disclosure requirements for both buyers and sellers.
  • Warranted items as provided in the AAR purchase contract.
  • Using inspection reports to write a BINSR and using the BINSR correctly.
  • Working with appraisers, the Home Value Code of Conduct (HVCC) and best practices.

When qualifying a property for listing, REALTORS® play a very important role. REALTORS® who participate in this course will leave with a greater understanding of how to qualify both the property and the seller. With the many tools and resources available, this course will also help REALTORS® identify “red flags” that may cause problems prior to listing a home for sale. Uncovering these tools and utilizing them wisely will have an impact on buyer financing and desirability.

When selling real estate, it is extremely important to match the buyer to the right property. Not only taking into account aesthetic needs, but also understanding available financing and the types of properties that clients are willing to purchase. This course covers the best ways to match a buyer to a home based on a number of differing factors.

Any seasoned REALTOR® will tell you that a good inspector and a knowledgeable appraiser are crucial to selling a home. Knowing how to read a home inspection report and understanding how to assist your clients with the report is a great way for a REALTOR® to flex some expert muscle. The same is true for appraisals. This course delves into the multiple factors that affect the price of a property and teaches REALTORS® more about the entire inspection and appraisal process; including how to dispute an appraisal.

Read more about all the changes taking place regarding the GRI designation and find out how you can also build successful Strategies in Effective Consumer Satisfaction.

AAR would like to thank David Gilpatrick, Residential Environmental Services of America and Holly Mabery and Stacey Onnen from Keller Williams Check REALTY for their contributions to this class.
