Founded in 1929, NAREE has more than 650 members nationwide. The association meets in different US cities three times per year.

In the Winter, NAREE members gather for a Design Trends Snapshot and Networking Reception during the National Association of Home Builders "International Builders Show."

In the late Spring/early Summer, members meet for NAREE's Annual Spring Conference. NAREE leaders put together panels of newsmakers and trend setters to discuss issues of the day and to answer reporter questions on breaking stories. Professional development sessions and/or area tours are also scheduled. NAREE's Annual Real Estate Journalism Conference includes "NAREE's Meet the Press," a one-on-one opportunity for freelance writers, columnists, and publicists to take part in a mini press tour -- visiting with up to a dozen of the nation's leading real estate journalists gathered under one roof. The association also presents awards to the winners of the annual journalism competition and the Bruss Book Competition. 

In the Fall, members gather for Fall Summit and Installation of Officers and Awards Dinner. The President's Award for Outstanding Service is presented. The Fall Summit is held as members gather the National Association of Realtors Convention. NAREE strives to maintain a presence at other industry meetings including the Urban Land Institute as volunteer time allows.
