What Is AAR?

The Alaska Association of REALTORS® has been the organized voice of the real estate industry in Alaska since 1959. It serves as the main voice for real estate professionals, a provider of industry related education and plays an influential role in promoting laws that are beneficial to the Alaska licensee and the Alaska property owner.

As the Voice of Real Estate in Alaska, the vision of the Alaska Association of REALTORS® is to create an environment that promotes and protects private property rights and encourages real property ownership.

Our objectives include: Focus Association activities and programs in keeping with real property ownership and private property rights.

Develop a political network to exert effectively a combined influence upon matters affecting Alaska real estate.

Elevate the ethical standards of the real estate business and the professional conduct of persons engaged in real estate in Alaska through education and communication.

Unite Alaska REALTORS® to strengthen our industry and give all Alaskans the opporuntiy to realize the American dream of property ownership.

AAR is the bridge between the local boards and the National Association of REALTORS®. When you become a member of the local board, this includes membership in the Alaska Association and the National Association. There are seven local boards throughout Alaska; Anchorage, Fairbanks, Mat-Su Valley, Kenai, Homer, Kodiak and southeast Alaska.

NAR Board Approves Nationwide Broker Data Entry System

The NAR Board of Directors at its 2015 meeting May 16 in Washington, D.C., approved a partnership between NAR and its wholly owned subsidiary Realtors Property Resource® and another company, UpStream RE, LLC, to create a data entry and collection system for the brokerage community using the RPR® advanced Multi-list platform (AMP™). The system will give brokerages a single place to input their listing data for distribution on multiple platforms online, including Realtor.com, local MLSs, and broker websites. The initiative will be funded using NAR operating reserves over 36 months, at a net amount not to exceed $12 million.

The Board of Directors meeting closed out the 2015 REALTORS® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo, attended by 8,000 REALTORS® and guests. The weeklong meetings included hundreds of visits by REALTORS® to their members of Congress to advocate on behalf of the real estate industry.

Prior to the vote on the data entry system, NAR CEO Dale Stinton described this latest initiative as an important strategic “pivot” for NAR and RPR® that helps brokers maintain control of their listing data while accomplishing long-sought technology objectives of real estate brokerage companies, MLSs, and associations by creating a single back-end entry point for all listing data that is then distributed to all the end-points identified by the broker.

The data entry system is explained in a video on REALTOR.org. Access that now.

Before the board vote on the new system, NAR CEO Dale Stinton provided an historical perspective on the association’s strategic initiatives.
