The Lorain County Association of REALTORS® began as a natural
extension of the movement of persons in the real estate business
to unite together and promote their similar business interests
and share experience and information.
The Lorain County Board of REALTORS® was formed in November
of 1973 with the merger of the Lorain Board of REALTORS® (chartered
in 1927) and the Elyria Board of REALTORS® (chartered in 1928).
In April of 1991, the Board became the Lorain County
Association of REALTORS®.
The Association joined the Northern Ohio Regional Multiple Listing
Service (NORMLS) in January of 1987 and became proportional owners
of this regional information system in December of 1993.
Today, The Lorain County Association of REALTORS® is the
Voice for Real Estate in Lorain County, representing
