Who We Are

Built on a strong history

Founded in 1887, Minneapolis Area REALTORS® is the largest local REALTOR® association in Minnesota. In 1916, past President and Minneapolis member Charles Chadbourn coined a term that would go on to embody the values of his profession.

That term was REALTOR®.

Building upon this history, the association will continue to honor the past as it moves forward with excellence and teamwork.

Helping REALTORS® build vibrant communities

Minneapolis Area REALTORS® supports and connects over 9,000 REALTOR® members. MAR invests in education and the economy and holds its members strictly accountable to the NAR Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. The association has come to believe that, in the rich blend of these activities, communities come together for a better, brighter future.
