Home | 2019-2023 ABoR & ACTRIS Strategic Plans

The future of ABoR + ACTRIS starts here.


On September 5, 2018, the Austin Board of REALTORS® (ABoR) Board of Directors passed separate, dedicated visions for ABoR and the wholly owned, Austin/Central Texas Real Estate Information System (ACTRIS) for the first time in our history.

Here's what you need to know.


ABoR and ACTRIS have new vision & mission statements.

The core purposes of an Association and an MLS are inherently different. In setting separate visions for ABoR and ACTRIS, we have built a foundation on which both entities can stand alone and exponentially grow the vital, but distinct, value they provide you and your business.



To foster the most professional and engaged REALTORS® in the nation.


ABoR. Building Connections.
At the Austin Board of REALTORS®, we build connections that strengthen the careers of our members and improve the lives of Central Texas families. 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. We connect homeowners and REALTORS® to the legislative process, speaking up for the place we all call home.
