About Us

What is Dayton REALTORS®?

Dayton REALTORS®, an association of real estate professionals, is one of the nearly 1,800 real estate boards in the country which make up the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), the largest trade association in the world. Established in 1909, Dayton REALTORS® has over 2,800 members dedicated to serving the needs of both home sellers and buyers in the Miami Valley. Like any other trade association, the board's basic purpose is to serve the needs of its members. But unlike other organizations, the board must also expand its scope to include services to the thousands of homeowners in the area and to the many communities in which they live. Dayton REALTORS® serves its members as a resource for continuing education, a wide range of committee activities, the Multiple Listing Service, social events, products and publications.
