The National Association of Apartment Locators (NAAL) is a non-profit trade association formed in 2011 to maximize the mutually beneficial relationship between apartment locators and the multifamily communities we serve.


Our recent member survey revealed that 70% of our members joined NAAL to add credibility and strengthen relationships with apartment communities.  All of our members contribute to improving the culture of our organization, and want to continue adding value to the service they provide to renters and apartment communities. This year our local chapters will be organizing a property relations campaign to show our appreciation to the communities that work with apartment locators.


The integrity of our members is our highest priority. Every member must agree to operate their business according to our Code of Ethics and Business Practices. We strongly encourage property managers and renters to insist on NAAL membership before agreeing to work with an apartment locator. All of our members have been vetted and hold themselves accountable to a higher standard than other locators.



NAAL is a professional community of apartment locators who are passionate about providing the highest level of service to their clients and the apartment communities they serve. Our members strengthen these relationships by demonstrating professionalism, honesty and integrity, thereby guiding the future success of our individual companies. As an organization we continually raise the standards of conduct among our locator members to emphasize the importance of leadership and positive relationships.

This is no guarantee that you will also be exempt, but it will give you some documentation to request the exemption.
