NAEBA Past Presidents

In 2025, NAEBA will celebrate our 30th year of protecting real estate consumers and promoting the Common Law of Agency in real estate.

Until the 1980s, all real estate agents represented the seller in a real estate transaction. With the advent of Exclusive Buyer Agency, where a real estate brokerage only represents the buyer in any transaction, rights and protection were also developed for buyers by eliminating any real or perceived conflicts of interest.

In February 1995, 175 people attended an inaugural meeting in Olive Branch, MS, creating NAEBA, a nonprofit association solely dedicated to those brokerages practicing Exclusive Buyer Agency and the protection of real estate consumers.

Thank you to all the volunteers who have served home-buying consumers and NAEBA!
