Chicago Real Estate Board Soundex Code C220

The Chicago affiliate of the National Association of Realtors changed its name from the Chicago Real Estate Board to the Chicago Association of Realtors in 1972.

Local brokers were prime movers in the founding of the National Association of Real Estate Exchanges in 1908, renamed the National Association of Real Estate Boards (NAREB) in 1916. NAREB the next year adopted “realtor” as the title for its members. Among its activities was the creation of ethical practices for realtors, including a commitment to not selling properties that would change the racial make-up of a community. NAREB took the name of National Association of Realtors in 1972. The Chicago affiliate changed its name from the Chicago Real Estate Board to the Chicago Association of Realtors at the same time.
