The Association

About us…
If you’re like most people, your home is your biggest investment.

The Ohio Association of REALTORS is your partner in protecting that investment…your piece of the American dream.

Formed in 1910, the Association now counts as the state’s largest professional trade organization, with more than 30,000 members.

OAR is the major champion of private property rights in Ohio: the rights you, as an Ohio homeowner or potential home buyer, enjoy now and expect to preserve for your children and grandchildren.

OAR is the state’s largest professional trade association. Composed of real estate professionals (REALTORS), who’ve joined the local, state and national associations of REALTORS, OAR’s members have agreed to abide by the National Association of REALTORS’ stringent Code of Ethics.

OAR offers services to its members in addition to protecting private property rights for the public. Those member services include: lobbying state legislators on industry issues, research development, legal assistance (note: OAR does not offer legal assistance or answer questions of a legal nature to the public. If you have a legal concern or issue, please contact a real estate attorney), current real estate information and member discounts on products and services.

OAR staff professionals, continually seek fresh ways of responding to REALTORS’ business and professional needs, and the needs of private property owners across the state.
