posted at All Rights ReservedFounded in 1921, the Northern Virginia Association of REALTORS (NVAR) began as the Alexandria-Arlington-Fairfax Real Estate Board with 40 members. Today, the organization supports roughly 10,000 Realtors throughout Northern Virginia. These real estate professionals have helped to create an $11 billion industry in the state. NVAR offers its members continuing education, market analysis, real estate law updates, certification verification, lockbox services, and advocacy for the improvement of the real estate industry. The NVAR’s educational opportunities include classes in appraisal, designations, licensing, and the principles of real estate, and it offers networking events and awards to its top performing members.

The group also provides resources to consumers, such as lists of available homes, pertinent statistics, resources for complaint filing and arbitration, and a Realtors locator. It also sells low-cost reading materials such as Buying, Selling or Renting Brochure; What Everyone Should Know About Equal Opportunity Housing; A Realtor’s Role: Understanding the Options; and How to Avoid Predatory Lending. Additionally, the NVAR’s website includes an extensive list of real estate laws and ethics information.

Working to improve the real estate industry abroad, NVAR collaborates with leaders in the field in China, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East. The organization also supports eco-friendly building practices and constructed an energy- and water-efficient headquarters with sustainable resources and labor.
