The Northern Virginia Association of Realtors® (NVAR) serves as the voice for real estate in Northern Virginia, with a mission of elevating Realtor® success by delivering exceptional value, driving innovation and impacting the industry. NVAR is among the largest of the hundreds of regional associations that compose the National Association of Realtors® (NAR).
All Realtors® are real estate agents, but not all real estate agents are Realtors®. The Realtor® designation is a registered collective membership mark that denotes membership in NAR, whose members adhere to a strict code of ethics and employ the highest level of professional standards.
NVAR was established in 1921 as the Alexandria-Arlington-Fairfax Real Estate Board. With about 40 members, the association served a population of 60,250 at that time. NVAR has grown to over 12,000 Realtor® and affiliate business members. This group of Realtors® closes more than 22,000 transactions annually, with a dollar volume totaling more than $15 billion, in a community of more than 2 million residents.
NVAR has a diverse membership reflective of the Northern Virginia region and consists of: sales agents, brokers, property managers, appraisers and others engaged in all aspects of the real estate industry.
While our members live and work throughout the DC-Metropolitan area, NVAR’s specific geographic region includes Arlington County, Fairfax County, City of Fairfax, City of Falls Church, Town of Vienna, and City of Alexandria.
