WASHINGTON, D.C. – Longtime Nevada REALTOR® Marvin Rubin (pictured at left in adjacent photo with NAR President Tom Salamone) was one of only two REALTORS® in the nation to receive the Meritorious Service Award from the National Association of REALTORS® at NAR’s mid-year meeting in Washington, D.C. earlier this month.

Dave Tina, president of the Nevada Association of REALTORS® (NVAR), said Rubin’s honor was one of the most prestigious awards an NAR member can receive from the national association. As one of NAR’s 535 Federal Political Coordinators for 2016, Rubin was recognized for his years of service and diligence in promoting real estate issues and his advocacy work with members of Nevada’s congressional delegation, including U.S. Sen. Harry Reid.

“Only two REALTORS® each year receive this prestigious award,” Tina said. “It’s an honor for Marv to be one of them, and it says a lot about what he has done to help our profession, our state and our local and national associations over the years.”

Scott Beaudry, president of the Greater Las Vegas Association of REALTORS®, added that “Marv has fought the good fight for many years to ensure that the REALTOR® voice has been heard by our congressional delegation.”

Rubin is a REALTOR® with the Meadows Realty Group in Las Vegas. Over the years, he has been an active member and board member of NVAR and GLVAR, earning several awards from the local associations.

WEB-LVhomeStartsRENO – The housing market in Nevada continues to improve and is in better shape today than it was two years ago.

So says a recent survey of nearly 600 REALTORS® from throughout the state conducted by the statewide Nevada Association of REALTORS® (NVAR).

In its most recent survey of its members, conducted via an online survey between March 22 and March 31, NVAR found that 71 percent of the 596 respondents said they believe the local housing market “got better over the past year.” That’s up from 65 percent of all Nevada REALTORS® who reported feeling that way when answering the same question about their local housing market in NVAR’s 2015 survey.
