It is the mission of the Kansas City Regional Association of REALTORS® to serve as the regional voice of real estate and private property rights while providing innovative resources, tools and education focused on member success and professionalism.
The Kansas City Regional Association of REALTORS® (KCRAR) exists to protect the rights and privileges of home ownership, to maintain continuing avenues of education and to improve the standards of the real estate profession and to serve our members and the real estate community.
KCRAR is affiliated with the National Association of REALTORS®, the Kansas Association of REALTORS® and Missouri REALTORS® .
The term REALTOR® is a registered collective membership mark that identifies a real estate professional who is a member of the National Association of REALTORS® and subscribes to its strict Code of Ethics.
KCRAR is run by a set of bylaws, which lay out privileges and obligations of members as well as how the Association is governed. These bylaws were adopted by the KCRAR Board of Directors, and any amendments to them must also be approved by the KCRAR Board of Directors.
In January 2001, the Metropolitan Kansas City Board of REALTORS® in Missouri and the Johnson County Board of REALTORS® in Kansas merged to become the Kansas City Regional Association of REALTORS® (KCRAR). Since then, KCRAR’s jurisdiction has grown to include 34 counties through the addition of the St. Joseph Chapter in 2018, the Midwest Missouri Chapter in 2019, the Five County Chapter in 2020 and the Pittsburg Chapter in 2021.
Today, the Association is one of the largest and most respected local REALTOR® associations in the country, serving 13,000+ members.
