History of GLAR
The Greater Lansing Association of REALTORS®: 100 Years of Growth, Modernization, and Community Service In, 1907, a year before The National Association of REALTORS® was formed, 14 Lansing area real estate firms concerned with promoting the interests of real estate organized the first real estate board in this area. The purpose of the organization was to encourage more efficient cooperation between real estate brokers; to protect the interest of brokers, Owners, and Purchasers of real estate; and to improve the condition of the real estate profession by cultivating a high standard of ethics in all transactions. In short, they hoped to improve a profession that had, until that time, been unregulated by state government or by a private membership association.
