The National Association of Realtors released a survey that said that [public opinion about Realtors set a record high for the third year in a row [RISMedia].](http://www.rismedia.com/index.php/article/articleprint/12251/-1/1/)
Those surveyed were asked about the effectiveness of their Realtors and 59% found them to be effective. The NAR has been touting this as part of their 8 year public awareness campaign.
Being a Realtor can be a tough job. Is it just me or is 59% on the low side? I am not clear why this figure is being touted so much.
