Founded in 1910, the Atlanta Board of REALTORS has been an instrumental factor in the growth of organized real estate in the state of Georgia for over a century. With over 5,000 members, Atlanta is the largest Board in the state of Georgia and considered to be one of the strongest, most successful and progressive REALTOR® Boards across the nation.
The Atlanta Board serves as a central source of information for our members and our main thrusts are real estate education, the promotion of professionalism in our industry and representing our REALTOR® members with legislative initiatives to create positive change for the real estate community. Throughout its history, the Atlanta Board has exerted its influence in civic affairs in its capacity of representing a substantial segment of the business community across Atlanta. The Board has contributed representatives to the Atlanta Aldermanic Board, City Zoning Boards, the Mayor's Committee on Urban Renewal, the office of Vice-Mayor, the Mayor, and also County Commissions, and the Atlanta Housing Authority. The Board has consistently, for many years, exerted its influence on behalf of the real property taxpayers. The Atlanta Board has played a major role in the creation of the Georgia Real Estate Commission and has played an integral part in the development of the Georgia License Law.
Membership in the Board provides you a distinct competitive and educational advantage as a professional. Networking opportunities are provided through our Education Seminars, Multi-Million Dollar Sales Club Banquet, Annual Auction, Trade Show and Annual Business Meeting. Comprised of members in all areas of the industry, the Atlanta Board’s long standing and highly respected presence in Atlanta gives you, the member, instant credibility as a REALTOR®.
In addition, we would like to emphasize that the Board is a neutral place where we can all come together to discuss and brainstorm the many issues and challenges facing our industry in the 21st century. Simply stated, it is a place where we can not only build and develop good professional relationships, but also share our knowledge and expertise for the betterment of our real estate profession and the public we serve.
