About Greater Nashville REALTORS
Greater Nashville REALTORS® was formed in 1891 and at the time it was known as the Nashville Real Estate Board. The name was later changed to the Nashville Board of REALTORS®, to the Greater Nashville Association of REALTORS® in 1996, and most recently in 2016 to Greater Nashville REALTORS®.
When the association started, there was no Tennessee or National Association of REALTORS®. As a matter of fact, the first attempt to create a national association of real estate boards was right here in Nashville, Tennessee in 1892. The attempt did not succeed, due in part to a national recession in 1893. What is now known as the National Association of REALTORS® was formed in 1908 in Chicago, Illinois. Nashville has been affiliated with the National Association of REALTORS® since 1911 – more than 100 years ago!
The association's archives, housed at the Nashville Library, chronicle a history of association members being involved in a variety of community, political and social issues, as well as providing excellent professional services to clients and customers using their expertise. Those archives also reveal that the four fundamental services provided by the association at its beginnin...g remain the fundamental services it provides today. They include:
- Education and Professional Development Opportunities
- Legislative involvement at the local, regional, state and national levels
- Dispute resolution for members and those they serve
- Communication – with the public, to highlight the importance of property ownership and the value of using a REALTOR® – and with members, to keep them informed of opportunities for involvement, networking and growth.
