Kevin, There is a NAREB member board in my state, 

Philadelphia Metropolitan Board of Realtist (no 's' at end according to website). Their members are referred to as realtists.

So here's a question within a question for all Rainers:  

"Have you heard or used the term 'realtist' before?"

Kevin J. May I believe that NAR got the official trademark for the name "REALTOR" approved by the U.S. Office of Patents and Trademarks.

I was just under 4 years old at the time and don't have a first-hand memory of this event.

But, I do recall this info from recently taking a NAR refresher. (Hope I'm right.)
