REALTORS® Association of Edmonton

In 1909 the Edmonton Real Estate Exchange was created. It introduced a shared listing concept, a uniform rate of commission for services and endeavored to create a high standard of integrity and encourage a spirit of fair and honourable competition in the marketplace. The exchange operated only to 1913, overwhelmed by the political and economic upheaval of the times. Reflecting better economic times of the late 1920s, members of the Edmonton real estate industry established the Edmonton Real Estate Association in 1927.
