About NVAR: Mission Statement


To promote the professionalism of members through education, tools and resources to help elevate their business and ensure that Realtor® ethics and property rights are protected through inspirational leadership.


The Northern Virginia Association of REALTORS® (NVAR) was established in 1921 as the Alexandria-Arlington-Fairfax Real Estate Board, with about 40 members. NVAR has grown to over 11,000 REALTORS® who annually transact about $11 billion of housing sales in a community of more than 2 million residents.

A premier local association, NVAR is one of the hundreds of local and state associations that comprise the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), with more than 1 million members.

NVAR provides a variety of services to its members including educational opportunities, professional standards enforcement, market statistics, legislative reviews, issues lobbying, multiple listing and lockbox services, and more.

The mission of ensuring that property rights are protected extends beyond Northern Virginia to serve a national and international community. NVAR assists associations around the world, sharing knowledge about how the industry works in the U.S. with real estate leaders from Peru, Spain, Vietnam, Poland, China, Russia, Ukraine, the Middle East and South America.
