ABoR. Building Connections.
At the Austin Board of REALTORS®, we use technology, education, and advocacy to build connections that strengthen the careers of our members and improve the lives of Central Texas families. We empower REALTORS® and their clients by connecting them to the market’s most complete, accurate, and up-to-date listing data. We connect our members to unparalleled opportunities for training and professional development, while also strengthening the industry’s connection to the highest standards of ethical behavior. And we connect homeowners and REALTORS® to the legislative process, speaking up for the place we all call home.
ABoR is dedicated to providing its members with unparalleled member benefits that speak to every aspect of your real estate business. In a fast-paced profession, you can rely on ABoR to provide a foundation for your success.
Our Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is the authoritative source for all Central Texas real estate pricing information, with a public portal, AustinHomeSearch.com, designed to connect Central Texas families with REALTORS® ready to assist in their search. MLS features like Competitive Market Analysis (CMA), the Centralized Showing Service (CSS) and Down Payment Resource (DPR), provide your business with critical value you can only get through ABoR and its partnership with ACTRIS.
ABoR’s education and training programs connect REALTORS® to experienced instructors with insight into everything from the latest technology to the timeless essentials. Our classes are designed to work around busy schedules, making it easy for you to fulfill MCE requirements, no matter what your week looks like.
We’ve been here a while.
ABoR has provided support for Central Texas real estate professionals since 1926. All that time, we’ve provided Central Texas REALTORS® with the tools they need to succeed and place clients in homes they love. During its nine decades of serving the Live Music and Breakfast Taco Capital of the World, ABoR has cemented its place as an Austin institution and a vocal proponent of the policies and business practices that have made this such a city great.
