RISMEDIA, August 26, 2009-The Houston Association of Realtors® (HAR) has officially become the largest local Realtor board in the United States following a recent rise in membership and a decline in membership at the Long Island (New York) Board of Realtors (LIBOR).
HAR currently has a total Realtor membership of 23,354, surpassing LIBOR’s Realtor membership total of 23,236 by 118 Realtors. HAR and LIBOR are by far the largest local Realtor associations, as the Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors is currently third with nearly 10,000 fewer members.
“The Houston Association of Realtors is thrilled about achieving this milestone, which demonstrates that our members are deeply committed to the real estate business and have been bolstered by the stronger greater Houston real estate market,” said HAR Chair Vicki Fullerton. “Realtor have also come to appreciate the tremendous value they derive through HAR membership, including a host of services such as free member websites, free member blogs, free agent newsletters, legislative support, award-winning communications campaigns, the pre-eminent local public real estate website, HAR.com, and a host of other offerings for which other associations either charge additional fees or do not offer at all.”
