No.  I've also seen through aHrefs that when NAR moved from Realtor.org to NAR.Realtor they lost a LOT of domain authority.  My links from them went from DR 80-90 to DR 0-10!

Nope, I'm retiring Praful Thakkar but even if I were not retiring I would not do it. I got no benefit from taking a .Realtor domain and I doubt anything other than .com is beneficial.

We include our team name in our email so the value of the new offering from NAR does not have much appeal.

I, too, took the free .REALTOR domain when it was offer. I never had occasion to use it.

No.  The only domain that people remember is .com (for business anyway).  It is just a way for a company to drain money for agents who are new and naive enough to think it matters.

I had my '.Realtor' domain name when it was complimentary. Not after one year!

Now that '.RealEstate' is for pre-sale it's still a suckers grab.
