Our board was founded in 1983 as the Northwest Garland County Board of REALTORS®, with fifty-five members. In 1995, the name was changed to Hot Springs Village Board of REALTORS®. Today we have over 131 REALTOR® members, as well as affiliates. We serve parts of Garland and Saline Counties in central Arkansas, particularly Hot Springs Village and the surrounding area.
Our vision is to facilitate the sale of property in and around Hot Springs Village, with our members operating with the highest integrity available in the real estate industry; to help our members attain their best potential in their careers; to serve the local community; and to strengthen the real estate industry.
Our mission is to increase competency, professionalism, and ethical behavior among our members. We strive to be the voice of real estate for our local community, and we invest in the community through outreach and service activities. Because property ownership and property rights are essential to strong communities, we advocate on behalf of the real estate industry.
More than two million people nationwide have licenses to sell real estate, of which more than one million belong to the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR). Only NAR members are entitled to use the term REALTOR®.
NAR members must adhere to a strict code of ethics. By joining NAR, individuals have access to a wide range of classes, seminars and certification opportunities. Local REALTOR® groups are active in community service, economic development, local politics, and other neighborhood organizations.
In essence, local REALTORS® are the community experts. They track real estate trends, share neighborhood concerns, and participate in local matters. They’re good neighbors who are in the business of helping others buy and sell homes.
We are a member of the Arkansas REALTORS® Association (ARA). Find information from and about ARA here:
