The Fresno Association of REALTORS® is a Trade Association for REALTORS®. We are also home of the Fresno Multiple Listing Service, where agents access and list properties for sale in Fresno County.
Real Estate Agents first become licensed by the California Department of Real Estate, and then may choose to join The Fresno, California, and National Association of REALTORS®.
Only real estate licensees who are members of the ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® are properly called REALTORS®.
They proudly display the REALTOR “®” logo on their business card or other marketing and literature.
